I really like the ARB Tred Pro boards, but they are sorely lacking a secure mounting option. These pins on plastic are useless. Everyone I wheel with has had issue with them and most of us have made maxtrax mounts work far better. Unless ARB pulls its head out of its @$$ and works with real world users on how we mount and carry boards, I will have to switch to maxtrax as they are clearly listening to their customers and have ever conceivable mounting option available.

2.0Zip Ties are a better solution
The design, execution, and delivered product are not worth the cost considering you have to buy TWO sets to properly secure the traction boards. The mounting hole spacing does not match up with the extremely common 80/20 rail in any manner. ARB should be embarrassed their name is on this product.

This has been a great asset for our business, saving us hundred of dollars on towing on job sites.
2.0Does its purpose but a let down for the price.
For starters it took right at a month to actuality get the part. Arbs isnt very forth coming that you also need to buy a mounting braket to. For a 60 plus dolar part it should come with mounting hardware.

5.0Most other brand's boards break. These don't
Aside from a number of typical recoveries, I have deliberately abused these to see what they will withstand. I have bridged gaps, spun tires, and I have used them to recover a stuck forklift and recently a stuck Boom Lift.
No teeth are damaged, and the boards not only didn't Crack, they don't even have stress lines in them.
The nut rivet slips when you tighten the bolt pin. If that could be improved or perhaps if it was welded this would receive a 5 ⭐️. Otherwise than that it holds the traction boards securely.
I needed 2 of these to mount my Tred 4x4 1100 traction boards on my Tacoma. Not completely universal i had to drill into them to mount them securely.
