Auxiliary Strap

The purpose of the Auxiliary Straps is to prevent excessive shock loading to your tow bar bracket which may occur due to whip action when the vehicle is in motion.

Whenever carrying more than 2 bikes, two Auxiliary Straps must be used which is why a set of two straps is supplied with every 4 and 5 bike MaxxRaxx.

Please Note; although two Auxiliary Straps are shown here, this item is for a single Auxiliary Strap, so if you require two Auxiliary Straps, please select 2 in the Qty field below.



  • It is always necessary to use two Auxiliary Straps when carrying more than 2 bikes on any vehicle.
  • A pair of Auxiliary Straps is included with every 4 and 5 bike rack we supply.
  • It is not necessary to use any Auxiliary Straps when carrying only 2 bikes, therefore no Auxiliary Straps are included with our 2 bike racks.
  • When carrying more than 1 electric bike on a MaxxRaxx, 2 Auxiliary Straps should be employed.
  • By using 2 Auxiliary Straps, a triangulated support is provided to help steady the load.
  • By locating the Auxiliary Straps between fixing points on the vehicle and the insertion points on the rack, any flexing movement is reduced.
  • It is important to ensure that the correct tension is applied to each strap. See Video
