The patented CROC HINGE® system allows for the convenient, controlled and assisted movement of accessories fitted to the bracket between two positions – a stowed position where the accessory rests on the roof rack and a deployed position where the accessory is located at a lateral position on the side edge of the roof rack.

We offer creative solutions for mounting your 4×4 accessories

By transitioning your awning onto the roof rack you can protect it from damage when driving in close terrain. It also provides the potential to reduce the height of your vehicle to get into those underground carparks.

The awning specific version of the CROC HINGE® 4×4 bracket offers the exact same functionality and versatility as the original (available here), the only difference is that it has a shorter product leg making it ideal for mounting a vehicle awning. When the awning is in use i.e. extended, we always recommend you tie it down so that it’s secure.

Fitting a CROC HINGE® 4×4 awning bracket to your roof rack lets you easily move your awning between two positions:

  1. A deployed position where the awning sits in a vertical position on the side of the roof rack, and
  2. A stowed position where the awning rests flat on the roof rack.

    Looked online for brackets to mount a new 270 degree awning and found the Croc Hinge . . . what a fabulous product with a host of great features.

    1. Fabricated from stainless steel – not crappy mild steel – so no more rust and should last a very long time.

    2. Very clever design allows me to lay the awning flat on the roof when not in use. This means a lot on a lifted 4×4 which often struggles to get into shopping centre carparks and of course to avoid overhanging branches on the trails.

    3. Having fitted the brackets and the awning I felt it would benefit from some additional support in the middle as it’s quite long. I really needed one more bracket but it seemed they were only sold in pairs. I sent a message on Saturday to Croc Hinge asking if I could buy a single hinge to complete my set up. Answer received on Monday morning with a one off code to allow me to buy a single Croc Hinge bracket. What FABULOUS service!!

    Thanks Croc Hinge for designing and making a fabulous product and for being a fabulous Australian company that provides fabulous service. Very much appreciated.

    Well built and designed product… The big bulky 270 awning now sits nicely on top of the rhino platform instead of hanging on the side.
