Mid Mount Bracket Kits
As per the Universal bracket kit, the Mid-Mount bracket kit suits vehicles with limited space between the top of the door and bottom of the rack, and where more height is not needed (eg: Nissan Patrol GU, GQ, Y62, Land Rover Disco 3,4,5.)
The Mid-Mount also fits any other rack where a midway position is needed.

There are varients available for this Kit to suit the many different racks on the market. In some cases (Shorter racks under 1800mm) it is more advisable to run the larger rear bracket in a mirror image at the front also, to ensure maximum strength and support is given to the rack.
Pole less trussed wing awnings exert enormous twist force on racks! - Please advise us of your particular racks dimensions / type and material when ordering your Mid mount brackets. We will tailor the kit to your needs.
Mid mount brackets shown beside on the right - the angle piece can be riveted in various positions to achieve adjustments in mount height -
The one Beside is being mounted to a ARB Ascent flat trade rack. Two M8 Bolts are used through the top plate (Though Bolted as in Picture) - and One on the face plate - In this case the single face plate m8 Was fitted using a nutsert. It could be through bolted also but access under the rack is harder...
Nutserts or Rivnuts are preferred for fitting to most rack types - Pictured beside is a mid mount being fitted up to a rhino platform rack.
For information on fitting the awning after brackets are fitted - please go to the 'awnings' pages themselves. Some video information is available there on the Ostrich fit up.
