  • The spade is a ubiquitous and necessary tool for any overlander or 4x4 enthusiast. Its use is varied and frequent from vehicle recovery, fire preparation and digging a humble toilet hole. The grubby shovel is destined for the roof, but accessing it should be fast and easy. Similar requirements are needed for other tools for the outdoor enthusiast. As such, a flexible and accommodating interface opens opportunity to more uses. Rhino-Rack knows the Australian outback can be rough, and any product destined for that environment needs to stand up to the abuse.

  • The Stow-It uses a ratchetted jaw to compress and secure items. To release the arm and grab your gear, it's done in a pinch! The spring-loaded arm allows for one handed operation for instant and easy access. The ratchet system and rubber pads provide flexibility to firmly hold items varying profiles from 10 to 50mm, boasting a gratuitous payload of 8kg. The robust and lightweight Aluminium construction is designed for the harshest Australian conditions.

  • When you need a shovel when overlanding, you usually need it NOW. The Stow-It makes any shovel instantly available while confidently secure from the outside of your vehicle. When time is critical in a vehicle recovery scenario, reducing stress and improving access to recovery gear and is likely to reduce errors. Digging a hole when you need the loo can also be a time sensitive situation - increasing the likelihood of digging a hole lessens the effect on the environment through safe and discrete management of waste.
