What is the CROC HINGE® 4x4 Bracket?
It’s the innovative new 4×4 mount that gives you the versatility to switch up how you store your 4×4 accessories. The unique patented design allows the movement of accessories fitted to the bracket between two alternate positions; a stowed position, flat on the roof rack or a deployed position where the accessory is located on the side of the roof rack. One simple pivot lets you conveniently transition from one to the other.
Reclaim Your Valuable Roof Space
Just imagine you’re heading off on a big trip and you’ve got the swag, chairs, firewood and all the other essentials on your roof. With the CROC HINGE® 4×4 Bracket there’s no need to also find the space required for a set of recovery boards as you can simply mount them on the side. Save on valuable roof space and enjoy the versatility of the CROC HINGE® mount.
Reduce Your Overall Height If Required
Need to pop into the shops on your way home after a day on the tracks? It’s an all too familiar feeling when you pull into the local shopping centre and then groan as you spot the maximum height sign… No worries, with the CROC HINGE® 4×4 Bracket you can reduce your overall profile by simply pivoting your recovery boards (or even your awning) onto the roof rack. Don’t get stuck with a fixed mount, get a CROC HINGE® 4×4 Bracket for versatility.
Easy Access When Needed
Whether you have your recovery boards stowed flat on the roof rack or you have them deployed in an upright position on the side, the CROC HINGE® 4×4 Bracket ensures that if you get stuck on the beach or the tracks, you can access them very easily. You don’t want to waste valuable time climbing onto the roof rack to untie recovery boards that are strapped down if the tide is fast approaching. Instead the CROC HINGE® 4×4 Bracket lets you simply pivot and undo the pin to access your recovery boards quickly and easily.

Points of Difference
It’s the unique pivoting movement that sets the CROC HINGE® 4×4 Bracket apart from competitors. Standard, fixed mounting brackets negatively impinge on the vehicle height and without them you reduce the carrying capacity of the roof rack so we offer you the best of both worlds.
