FAQ

The CROC HINGE® 4×4 Bracket is designed to suit most popular flat roof racks:

RHINO RACK FLAT STYLES (PIONEER SERIES) – due to the front-to-rear cross members using the CROC HINGE® 4×4 Bracket with this style of roof rack allows the mounting of MaxTrax, TREDS and a variety of other recovery boards.

YAKIMA FLAT ROOF RACKS – due to the side-to-side cross members on this style of roof rack the spacing permits the mounting of MaxTrax however TREDS requires a Bridge Plate (sold separately).

FRONT RUNNER ROOF RACKS – Unfortunately due to the raised outer lip that’s characteristic of this style of roof rack the current version of the CROC HINGE® 4×4 Bracket is not suitable. However, please check back soon as we release additional products.
