Do you have limited garage clearance? Don’t use your roof top tent year around? Maybe you just don’t want to keep the tent on your vehicle for errands or everyday life. Front Runner's Quick Release Tent Mount Kit gives a roof top tent camper the freedom to mount or remove the tent in seconds and with no tools. Two built-in locks give you safety and added peace of mind.

  • Proven gear and advice
    You can trust
  • Built off-road
    Tough
  • Designed
    Smart
  • Once these brackets are installed on a Front Runner Rack, no tools are needed to remove or install a roof top tent. Simply release the tabs on the 4 latches and lift the tent away in seconds.
  • No more wrenching in tight spaces during the “off-season” or time consuming weekday removal of a roof top tent.
  • This strong and rattle free mounting system is built off-road tough for use with Front Runner Racks.
  • Works with the Roof Top Tent and other popular soft shell tent brands like TJM, ARB, Tepui, etc.
  • Works with hard shell tents such as Autohome/Maggionlina, and James Baroud. Hard shell tent owners please read *IMPORTANT NOTE below.
  • 4 low profile base brackets are bolted to a Front Runner Rack while 4 self- aligning bushes are secured to the tent base channels using the supplied plates.
  • Two of the latches securely lock with a key while the other 2 latching brackets feature a safety catch.
  • Comes with 4 keys for locking brackets.
  • Tents can be mounted at two different heights, depending on clearance needs. The bottom of the tent can sit either 40mm / 1.57 inches or 17mm / 1 inch above the rack slats.
  • Certain tent sizes and designs will dictate the height needed to clear the edge of the Front Runner Rack.
  • The brackets are small, unobtrusive and can be left on the roof rack when the tent is not mounted, leaving vast rack space available
  • No tent modification required.
  • Removed tents can be stored on the ground, raised slightly off the floor by the supplied steel bushes.
  • Supplied with all required mounting hardware and a special installation tool.
    Fitting instructions are included.

*IMPORTANT NOTE: Hard shell tents need additional support. If you are using these brackets with hard shell tents, such as James Baroud or Autohome, and you are unable to position the tent to rest directly on the rack, or the edges of the rack side profiles, use – Hard Shell Tent Support Channels. Depending on the tent manufacturer, your hard shell tent warranty may be voided if your tent becomes damaged and you did not provide proper lateral support for the hard shell tent

I have an older version Maggiolina roof top tent and I have just recently purchased a Mazda BT50 with a full aluminium canopy. Would the quick release system work?. (Height of Canopy 1900, Height of tent 320, Garage door clearance 2300 mm

Will this work with a Howling Moon Stargazer 1.6 RTT?
Question by: Michael
Yes! Our quick release tent mounts will come with a series of plates to use with the different tent manufactures on the market.
Answer by: Front Runner
In the description it states that there are two mounting heights, 17mm and 40mm above the rack slats. In the install pdf I did not see the description of how to install for the optional ten heights. Could you explain how the bracket is adjusted for either height choice? Thanks!
Question by: Chris Yetter
The brackets can be mounted either on top of the rack, which is the tallest option, or you can mount the brackets so the "wings" of the brackets are bolted from underneath the rack and the latch portion of the bracket comes up between the two slats. If you look at figure 2.8 in the PDF you can see the visual of this. Thank you!
Answer by: Front Runner

Answer by: Front Runner
Would these quick release brackets work to mount a Tepui tent on my Slimline 2 rack?
Question by: Rob
Hi, Rob! Yes! These mounting brackets work with Tepui tents as long as you are using the Front Runner Slimline II rack. Thank you!
Answer by: Front Runner
Great idea! I have an old Maggiolina (Auto Home) roof tent with the mounting rails on 24" centers. Its mounted on a Hannibal Rack on my Defender 90. The Hannibal has lengthwise rails with the slots running on 24-3/8" centers. Is there any adjustment that will allow these mounts to be used on a rack where the rails run lengthwise instead of across the roof?
Question by: Jack Walter
Hi, Jack! The Quick Released Tent Mount Kit was designed specifically to be used with the Front Runner Slimline II rack. It works with a large variety of tents, including your Maggiolina tent, but you must have a Slimline II rack to use the kit.
Answer by: Front Runner
Any chance you'll come up with ones that fit the James Baroud rooftop tents?
Question by: Rob
Hi Rob! The Quick Release Tent Mount Kit does indeed fit James Baroud rooftop tents. Thank you!
Answer by: Front Runner
Will this work with an Eeze Awn K9 roof rack and a CVT tent? Asking for a friend. ;)
Question by: Stephen
Hi, Stephen! This kit was designed to work specifically with Front Runner racks and has not been tested on other rack applications. Your friend should give us a call to get a Front Runner rack ;)
Answer by: Front Runner
Great idea guys! I saw the new video on Youtube. I've had the Frontrunner RTT for a year or so and have used it many times. I'd love to have a quick mount like this. But I have a Gobi rack, and these look like they'll only work with your racks. Any adapters available for standard racks (round tubing)?
Question by: GCD
Thanks, GCD! For now the Quick Release Tent Mount Kit only works with Front Runner racks.
