Product Questions

Will the Ratcheting Spade/Shovel Mount hold an axe?
Question by Kris
If the diameter of the axe handle fits within the range of the straps, then it is physically possible. We recommedn being cautious of the axe head and any movement it may have against the rack. You can also check out our specific axe bracket! (RRAC023)

What diameter on shovel handle will work with these clamps? My short shovel out of the garage won't fit....diameter of handle too big. Didn't realize handle diameters vary. Any recommendations on shovel manufacturer/size/etc?

Answer by Front Runner
Does this mount lock so someone doesn't steal my shovel/axe?
Question by Jason Valentino
No. Our spade shovel mount does not lock.

We do offer an axe mount that does lock. Check it out in the link below.
Answer by Front Runner

Can these be mounted to the inside bottom rails of the Slimline II Extreme rack for a Jeep JK?
Question by Stuart S
No, they are designed for fitment in the side channels of the rack. There is a metal bracket which holds the ratcheting clamp. You'll really be bolting a complete system to the rack, rather than bolting a clamp and a strap.

Customer Reviews

Great functionality Review by Brian B
The work great. After 3 years on the rack, the paint is peeling off the silver ratchets. I wish they would have been made out of stainless for better durability. (Posted on 10/6/2017)
