Maxtrax & TRED Mounting Board to suit Cross Bars – Recovery Tracks Mounting Bracket

They’re a saviour on tough tracks and sandy beaches, but there’s nothing worse than trying to find a spot to put filthy Maxtrax after they’ve just saved your hide.

Our Cross Bar Recovery Board Mount enables safe and secure roof mounting on Cross Bar style roof racks, so they’re right where you need, when you need them most.


  • Low profile flush-mount design means your Maxtrax hug the rack, keeping your height lower for that pesky carpark clearance.
  • Slimline design means the board is almost invisible, removing visual clutter from your roof.
  • Multiple mounting holes for securing both the mount and recovery boards provides tonnes of flexibility.  
  • Provides quick access for even quicker recoveries.
  • Quick and simple to install.
  • Brackets are made from light yet strong Aluminium, and powder coated in a durable textured matt black finish that will blend in with your racks and won’t rust.



  • Multiple mounting holes suit Cross Bar spacing between 385-960mm.
  • Fits most popular sports and heavy duty roof racks, including from brands such as Thule, Rola, Rhino, Pro Rack and Yakima. Will fit some OEM racks, like the Nissan Xtrail. 
  • Mounting pin holes to suit Maxtrax MK2, TRED Pro, TRED and Exitrax.
  • Compatible with both Maxtrax Pins and TRED Pins. Will mount 2 or 4 Maxtrax MKII tracks.



  • 1 x Cross Bar Recovery Board Mount to suit Cross Bar racks
  • 4 x Slot nuts and stainless steel bolts to suit most common roof racks with a T or C style channel
  • Optional: 4 x Maxtrax 17mm Mounting Pins – Select your preference above

Cross Bar Recovery Board Mounting Bracket

Great service KAON, ordered the board & Maxtrax Pins on Friday, arrived on my doorstep Monday. 30 minutes and had them installed on my Ranger and recovery boards in position. Really well made, sturdy and lightweight product that fitted my Rhino Racks perfectly; just what I have been looking for. No more strapping the boards onto the racks or finding room in the back.

Recovery board mount for roof racks

This product is excellent for mounting my 4 Maxtrax recovery boards on my Thule roof racks. Multiple mounting holes allow bolting onto racks alongside luggage box which require set spacing of racks. Maxtrax mounting pins lock in recovery boards with padlocks.
