The most creative

mounting solution for your accessories.


The most versatile solution for your 4×4 accessories

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

  1. A vertical/upright position on the side of the roof rack (deployed position), and
  2. A stowed position where the accessory rests flat on the roof rack.

Side Mounted

With the accessory bracket in the deployed position, a user has easier access to any accessory attached to the accessory bracket, compared to if the accessory was positioned on the roof rack in the stowed position. When in the deployed position, a user can access the accessory without needing to climb on the vehicle, or using a step, ladder or something similar to reach the accessory. Further, when the CROC HINGE® is in the deployed position, space on the roof rack that would otherwise be obstructed or taken by the accessory is freed up allowing it to be used to carry other equipment.

Roof Mounted

When the accessory bracket is in the deployed position it (and the attached accessories) extend upwards from the roof rack and adds to the overall height. This increase in height impacts on the ability of the vehicle to pass under overhangs and/or gain access to height restricted car parks. However, the CROC HINGE® 4×4 recovery bracket allows for the accessory to be stowed flat and thus impacts less on vehicle height than other accessory mounts.

    I live in a unit on the Gold coast, max height is 2100mm to enter. I have struggled with my MaxTraxs constantly on my Rhino Platform, this solution is a amazing, the brackets are awesome, I can just fold my MaxTraxs flat when going into the car park. Thanks for coming up with a amazing solution, I highly recommend the brackets, I can’t wait for the new proposed Awning solution as well.
