Maxtrax Rear Wheel Harness

Inkl. MwSt. zzgl. Versand
Lieferzeit: 3-5 Tage

With the MAXTRAX Rear Wheel Harness you can transport your MAXTRAX safely and easily on the vehicle's spare wheel. The belt system is quick and easy to install and makes it easy to get to the sand boards quickly if necessary and sand, mud and snow stay outside the vehicle.

The "harness" can carry up to 5 MAXTRAX (or 4 really dirty ones that don't stack neatly) and includes a bag for e.g. B. for the Fixing & Linking Kit.


The MAXTRAX rear wheel strap is suitable for vehicles where there is easy access BEHIND the spare wheel mount, usually with a pivoting rack.

Developed only for MAXTRAX MK II!
The Maxtrax sandboards and connections shown in the pictures are NOT included.


Please follow these instructions carefully when fitting and using the MAXTRAX Rear Wheel Harness.

PLEASE NOTE: The MAXTRAX Rear Wheel Harness is designed to suit vehicles where there is access behind the spare wheel mount, easiest with an aftermarket swing away carrier or rear bar such as Kaymar, but it will also work if your spare wheel is attached to a rear door or panel, provided that you can fit a 25mm webbing strap vertically (and fairly centrally) down between the wheel/tire and the rear door or panel. Before commencing, ensure vehicle is parked on a flat level surface. The accessories pouch contains two webbing straps; a long one with a ratchet and a large metal hanger; the second shorter strap with a ratchet and four small hooks.

Step 1. Wrap the long webbing strap (with the large metal hanger) around the tire tread and thread the end of the strap through the slot in the ratchet.

Step 2. Align the strap so that the metal hanger is level, with its lower arms positioned approximately 60cm from the bottom of the tire. This is critical to ensure that the MAXTRAX do not protrude past the bottom of the tire, potentially striking the ground during an extreme-angle approach or departure. The height of the hanger can be adjusted by moving the webbing above the hanger towards the front or rear of the tire

Step 3. Once the hanger is correctly located and the strap is running parallel to the face of the tire, tighten the ratchet sufficiently to ensure that the strap cannot possibly move.
Step 4. Attach the accessories pouch to the two loops on the webbing above the metal hanger so that it hangs in the small void in the center of the wheel.

If you have a fixing and linking kit or telltale leashes, place them in the pouch now.

Step 5. Lift the MAXTRAX onto the harness, placing the center handles over the lower arms of the metal hanger, then push the MAXTRAX against the tire. The metal hanger will hold the MAXTRAX in place so that you can complete the next steps using both hands.

Step 6. Rest the remaining strap (with the four small hooks and ratchet) on top of the tire.

Step 7. Feed the longer segment of webbing down behind the wheel so that the two hooks appear below the bottom of the tire, at the center line of the wheel (or as close as possible) .

Step 8. Attach the four small hooks to the MAXTRAX. The top two hooks fit onto the top handles.

The lower hooks fit into the keyholes at the bottom.

Step 9. Pull the excess webbing through the slot in the ratchet and tighten sufficiently so that the MAXTRAX are pulled firmly against the face of the tire and cannot move.

Step 10. The tail of the strap wrapped around the tire has a velcro underside to help hold the top hooks strap in place. Tuck any excess webbing beneath a tight spot to prevent flapping.

WARNING! Before driving, and frequently during your journey (particularly on rough roads and tracks), check that both straps are tight and the MAXTRAX are secure and cannot move.

For additional peace of mind and to protect your MAXTRAX from thieves, thread a bicycle lock through the center handles of the MAXTRAX and the spokes of the spare wheel.
WARNING! Failure to closely follow and obey these instructions may lead to property damage and/or personal injury.

My opinion

I think it's a very nice solution for the MK II. Unfortunately it doesn't work for us because the rear view camera is hidden in the middle of the spare wheel. But who needs that? Maybe I'll try this holding variant after all.
