Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack Eye Bolt Kit Review

Hey Guys, is Collin here at etrailer. Today we're going to take a quick look at the eye bolt kit for the pioneer platform rack from Rhino-Rack. This eye bolt kit is going to mount in the t-track of your pioneer platform and provide you with a tied on point to secure your cargo. It has a very thick galvanized steel construction so it's going to be very durable and it's going to hold up great to rust and corrosion. Now with our eye bolt kit, we are using the Rhino-Rack cam buckle straps, which are available here at etrailer, either separately or as a kit with the eye bolt.Now you don't have to necessarily use these straps if you have your own those will work as well. Now in your kit you are going to get four eye bolts.

We have two of them right here and these are going to be very versatile. You can adjust them wherever on the platform rack that is going to best be able to secure your cargo. Now I'll just show you how it works real quick. We'll just loosen it like so, and again slide it in the track. If we need to adjust it between the slots, we'll just pull it all the way back.

Bring it outside of the track, just place it in the next one over, slide it wherever we need it.You're going to get all the hardware included with your kit. We're going to have some washers in the front and we do have the plate with the threads inside. That's going to help secure it to the platform rack. Now the order you go is the small lock washer and we'll go the big flat washer and the smaller flat washer. Now we'll just thread on that plate just slightly.

Now we can set it into the track and slide it over. When you're tightening it down, all you gotta do is go by hand all the way. Get it as tight as you can with your hands.If you aren't comfortable with how tight you get it with your hands, you can just grab a screwdriver, anything like that. You just apply it in there from more leverage. Just give it a quarter turn and that's going to be secure.

Now while these are going to make great and sturdy tied on points, they aren't going to be permanent. So if you do need to remove them because you either need the flat surface of your pioneer rack or if you just want to remove them when it's not in use, you can do that very easily. Just take them out of the track and stow them in your vehicle. Well, thank you all for watching. That's going to do for our look at the eye bolt kit for the Rhino-Rack pioneer platform rack.

Eye Bolt Kit for Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack - Qty 4 - RR43178

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (47 Customer Reviews)

This eye bolt kit provides tie-down points on your Rhino-Rack Pioneer platform for securing heavy loads. Bolts are made from corrosion-resistant galvanized steel. Includes 4 eye bolts.


Seemed a little expensive and like something that I could find a work-around for, but these are nice tough little eyelets. Combined with the Pioneer Platform, they are very flexible and easy to move in regards to their mounting location, which will make them very useful.


I love the rhino rack that I put on my 2007 Tundra. It was pretty easy to install; just take your time so that you get it on straight. I've loaded paddle boards, ladders, bicycles and many other things on there with no problems.


These parts are what you need to mount things to the Rhino-Rack.
I mounted my ARB awning brackets with this hardware.


Exactly what you would expect. All hardware was included, but there were no instructions. You really shouldn't need them for tis basic accessory.


This item has proven itself time and time again. The eyebolts configure to my rhino rack however I need to configure them with ease. If You have a Rhino Rack these hold downs are all you need. Thanks etrailer for the recomendation and support.


Should work well for roof platform. Etrailer is great!


Super easy to use and very strong.

I love this rack and system accessories.
Rory - 04/27/2022


These do NOT fit into a rhino rack roof track. No hard feelings, I just thought/hoped they would fit differently than they do. They seem like quality parts and very heavy duty. The black coating looks great.

Thank you for your review. These eye bolts are designed to install into the track of the pioneer platforms. If you have a Rhino Rack roof rack, you will need part S604.

Good eye bolt kit for my Rhino-rack pioneer platform


Love theses. Great quality. Appear stronger than my Rhino platform they attach too. Easy to put in platform track and tighten in desired position. Highly recommended. Purchase one set. Saw how well the work and purchased a second set. Seemed a little pricy at first but when I saw the quality I was pleased


I have ordered various products from Etrailer in the last couple of months and I have nothing but good to say about this company. Their customer services people were helpful with my buying decisions and didn't string me along or tell me a bunch of BS. Etrailer's prices are very competitive and all orders were delivered quickly.


Great customer service!


The eye bolt kit makes it easy to secure multiple items to the rack with ease. Loads stay secure over the roughest terrain. Great pricing, service and fast shipping from etrailer makes it even better. Certainly not the last time I'll be ordering from etrailer.


etrailer rocks... there are ACTUAL HUMANS that actually take care of you!! The delivery time was SHORT!!! Thank you. The RhinoRack ladder is NOT cheap... but it is perfect. It is sturdy and it folds easily. It is perfect for loading the pioneer platform. It will be used for many years, and it will come in handy. Thanks!


The rings are heavy and I think they will hold up well


Got this for my pioneer platform. Exceeded my expectations on quality. Would highly recommend these. My platform would fail before these eyebolts would


They are as advertised ..... M10 eye bolts, washers, and channel nuts. What else is there to say.


Very heavy duty! Cast eye let.


Very well built


Shipped and received within the time frame scheduled. Fit the rhino rack like a glove.


Very well made rack, accessories perform perfectly.


Great for strapping down your gear. Great quality... Heavy duty.


As always, great communication and fast shipping. Thanks


Product arrived as ordered! A bit longer processing, but worth it due to the cost savings. Highly Recommend!!!

  • Dimensions of Channel Nut Used for Rhino-Rack Pioneer Roof Platform Rack
    It kind of depends on the accessory, but the largest channel nut that would be used is for the Eye Bolt Kit # RR43178. These channel nuts measure 2.36" long x 0.77" wide x 0.39" thick and then the diameter of the bolt itself that fits in the slit is 0.37". As long as your accessory doesn't exceed at least the width and the thickness you should be good to go.

  • Can Eye Bolts Be Installed on 80/20 Aluminum Rails
    It looks like the 80/20 rails have varying T-Slot sizes so we likely do have something that fits, you'll just have to verify it will fit with your specific application. For example, the Eye Bolt Kit for Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack # RR43178 has eye bolts which have a 0.37" diameter threaded section, and then the base piece that fits into the T-Slot measures 0.77" Wide x 2.36" Long x 0.39" Tall as you can see in the linked photo.

  • Can I Use the Rhino Rack Universal Pioneer Platform on a 2019 Subaru Impreza
    Yes! the RhinoRack # RR42114BF will fit on round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars so as long as you've got existing roof rack crossbars on your 2019 Subaru Impreza, this will be a great fit for your vehicle. The Universal Pioneer platform is 38" wide and 48" long, so it will provide you with a great storage platform when you're on the road. I also like to recommend that if you're going to be carrying any items on the roof that might need to be tied down that you add...

  • Roof Mounting Points For Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack on 2021 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab
    Excellent question, and when installing the Pioneer Platform with the Backbone Mounting System on your 2021 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab you will install the hardware at the fixed mounting points on top of your truck; the correct part number for this system on your '21 Tacoma Double Cab is the following: - Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack with Backbone Mounting System # RR24AB What you'll do is remove the covers over the ditch, and that will expose the fixed mounting points which the Backbone...

  • Securing a Tent to my Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform
    It is inevitable that modifications are done to the Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform like part # JB0892 to accomplish your goals from time to time. With that said doing that can void out the warranty. There really isn't anything to go wrong with the platform so it is kind of a toss up as to how valuable the warranty is but there is a good work around. Using the Eye Bolt Kit for Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack part # RR43178 will give you sliding attachment points you can use the blocks that...

    The T-slots on your RetraxPRO XR # RTT-80383 have a 7/16" wide opening, so as long as the bolt width is less than that you'll be able to make those work. I recommend using the Eye Bolt Kit for Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack - Qty 4 # RR43178 since it has 3/8" bolts, so they'll fit well.

  • Aluminum Roof Carrier Compatible with Spare Tire Mount for 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
    For an aluminum rooftop carrier that will work great with a spare tire mount I recommend taking a look at the aluminum Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform # RR42115BF instead. This is an extremely versatile rack that will mount to the factory bars on your Subaru Outback and is compatible with a plethora of accessories such as the Spare Tire Carrier # RSWH and the Eye Bolt Kit # RR43178. I have attached a short video review on this platform below that you can also take a look at.

    I have a solution for you, but there isn't a spare tire carrier that is confirmed to fit the Inno Shaper 80 Roof Cargo Basket INXA568, so I do not recommend using the Rhino Rack Spare Tire Carrier # RSWH with it. For a platform rack that will accommodate many accessories and a spare tire carrier, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform Rack for Crossbars - Aluminum - 58" Long x 47" Wide # RR42115BF. This is compatible with the Rhino Rack Spare Tire Carrier for Rooftop Alloy...

  • Is There a Lock For Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack
    While there isn't a specific lock, what you can do is add a cable lock to secure the Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform Rack for Crossbars # RR42114BF. You can wrap the cable lock through the Pioneer # RR43164B and around your crossbars or raised side rails if your vehicle has them, which will add security. I recommend going with an option from MasterLock, the Master Lock Tuff Links Chain with Integrated Keyed Lock # 8291DPS. This will add an extra layer of security for you to protect...
