Rack Question

So, I have a folding bike with a rear rack, and I have a road bike that has rack mounting points, can I just install my rack from the folding bike to my road bike? I assume the answer we probably be no, but I'm too lazy to uninstall. Thanks. I want to see if I can do this as I would like to have a rear rack on my road bike for transporting stuff occasionally, and don't have much confidence on my DIY seat post rack.

I have no idea of what you can do , have you tried yet?

I'm too lazy to uninstall
there is your answer, No.

Buy a New one at a bike shop, pay what they want for it,
and they may put it on for you..
