CROC HINGE® foldable brackets are designed to suit most popular flat roof racks:


ARB BASE RACK (requires t-slot adaptors which can be purchased directly from ARB)


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 – due to the raised outer lip that’s characteristic of this style of roof rack CROC HINGE® mounting brackets are only suitable in combination with a spacer.

MESH STYLE ROOF RACKS – The CROC HINGE®  Bracket will fit a flat roof rack with ‘mesh’ style flooring however you will require a bridging plate.

If you have an alternative brand of roof rack or recovery boards please send us an enquiry and we can discuss suitability.

Each set (pair) of CROC HINGE® mounting brackets has a rated load bearing capacity of 35kg.

Some customers prefer to buy a set of three awning brackets to suit their particular set up or simply for peace of mind. We offer a set of 3 standard brackets here or alternatively a set of 3 Australian made brackets here.

We offer two options for our CROC HINGE® mounting brackets. 

  1. Locally made: This Australian designed product is also manufactured locally in Queensland.
  2. Made in China: Same great design and functionality, manufactured in China. 
There is no difference in functionality between the Chinese made and Australian made mounting brackets other than origin of manufacture. The imported brackets have laser etched branding and come in retail packaging i.e. branded box, but there is no difference in strength.

Definitely, it’s an easy, do-it-yourself task. Installing the CROC HINGE® 4×4 bracket will only take around 5 mins and literally all you need is a spanner.

You can follow our easy installation guide supplied with the product:

Installation Guide – CROC HINGE Awning Bracket

The CROC HINGE® 4×4 Bracket has been designed to suit most flat roof racks and therefore does not suit basket style roof racks.

No. Firstly, we didn’t want to increase the overall product price by including pins which some people may already have. Additionally, there are many different brands of recovery boards on the market so essentially you’ll need to purchase the appropriate style to fit your specific product. These are sold separately by the manufacturers of recovery boards and we also offer the most popular brands in our Shop should you wish to bundle with your
CROC HINGE® 4×4 Bracket.

Absolutely! This is a new addition but we are now offering CROC HINGE mounting brackets in a select range of colours. Customers can opt for a black or orange cerakote finish (additional charges apply). 

AUSTRALIA WIDE: You can purchase any of our Croc Hinge products directly via our website.
