The CROC HINGE 4x4 Bracket is the most versatile mount for your 4WD accessories.
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.
Switch up how you store your 4x4 accessories to:
1. Reclaim valuable roof space
2. Reduce overall height if required
3. Get easy access to your accessories
When the accessory bracket is in the deployed position, a user has easier access to any accessory attached to the accessory bracket, relative 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 gain access to 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.
When the accessory bracket is in the deployed position it (and the attached accessories) extend upwards from the roof rack and thus 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® bracket allows for the accessory to be stowed flat and thus impacts less on vehicle height than other accessory brackets.
What you get:
- Easy to follow installation instructions
- 2 x 304 grade stainless steel brackets compatible with most popular flat roof racks* (Check combination before ordering)
- Mounting pins sold separately as they are dependent on the accessory you wish to fit.
