Looking to mount a roof top tent to your roof rack or bed rack; we got you covered! These HD mounts will not bend or break and will keep your RTT exactly where you want it without worry of it sliding around. They also act as a theft deterrent with hidden hardware (if using the black screw on caps). Gone are the days of a cheapo stamped washer that bends and snaps and doesn't truly secure your expensive investment.
Don't see the size you need? Send us an email (email@example.com) and we can see what we can do! We expect to launch more sizes very soon!
For a variety of racks. To ensure fitment, be sure to measure the dimensions of your tubing before ordering. If you order the wrong size, you will be responsible for shipping back to us BEFORE we send you another set.
We don't list specifics here simply cuz some roof rack companies use different size tubing for different makes and models. Many others also don't list specs on their website. So it is up to you to ensure you know what size you have!
Compatible with roof top tents that feature the common aluminum mounting track extrusions (see video) that use 5/16-18 or M8 hex head size bolts. Other tracks may work as long as they use the same size hex head bolt. Note the security caps may not bottom out depending on thickness of different roof top tent extrusions.
Choosing your quantity is up to you to make the decision. If you have a very heavy and expensive tent, I would suggest getting more than the 4 pack to ensure proper installation. Also to note, it may depend on your rack, and the rails under your tent too as they may limit how many you can use.
We all know that installing roof top tents is not a fun job, so let's just get that out the way! If you have already installed it, and simply swapping out bent plates for our mounts, you will be able to do that much quicker. If you are lifting the tent or installing it for the first time, we would highly suggest using 2-3 people as they are very big and heavy.
We designed our mounts to have a 0.100" gap in-between the top of your tubing and the top of our mount. This allows for some compression, as well as difference tolerances of powder coating and tubing thicknesses. The most important thing to note when installing these is to create an equal gap. The mounts won't work as efficiently if they become cockeyed. You want to start with one bolt (using a 1/2" socket wrench or box wrench), and equally snug them up taking turns until there no less than 0.080" gap. Beyond that, you may bend the mounts and possibly bottom them out.
If you are using the black security caps, they will screw onto the end of the exposed thread of the bolts. Snug them up using your fingers, then use a small allen wrench (about 1/8" size) into one of the three holes and crank it down further. For extra security, we suggest adding super glue into the threaded part of the cap to ensure they don't come undo, and also to make it harder for a thief to steal.
After a test drive or two, ensure they are still snug. And as always, before any long trips, go ahead and check them again as well.
Only offered in regular coat black anodizing. Anodizing can fade over time. You can apply some wax or UV coat regularly to help prevent fading. Tumbled to remove machine marks for the perfect finish.
We design our products to offer a stealth looking install. We don't put gawdy logos or stickers on them.
Includes new stainless steel hardware (5/16-18 hex heads, washers, and nylock nuts).
These mounts are what a rooftop tent should come with. My tent weighs over 200 lbs, so the cheap hardware that it comes with always made nervous that something could happen while traveling. These give you that peace of mind that your expensive tent will be perfectly secured to your rack.
Eased my mind
These RTT mounts are exactly what should be included in your hardware kit when purchasing your tent. The fit is perfect and snug. I bought my new RTT last summer and almost lost my tent down a 100 foot drop off 3 hours after install because the original mounts and hardware was junk. The original mounts slid side to side on my bed bars from Relentless Fab and led to the powder coating being rubbed off and some rust. My mind is at ease now with these new mounts!!! Im very excited.
Have been struggling with keeping our Mt Hood Cvt mounted securely to our Gamivitti rack with the hardware provided. The rtt would shift side to side while out wheeling and would have to add just many times during trip. Received the 1” mounts and threw them on . All I can say is well worth it and a must have . Will be changing all other rtt mounts to the Gzila mounts
