Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Batwing and Foxwing Awnings Replacement Hinge Insert Kit Review

Adam: What's going on everybody Adam with Etrailer and we have a broken hinge on our bat wing awning. As you can see right here that is broke. The bottom two and the top two or what they're supposed to look like. So, we actually do have the replacement part at Etrailer on our website. So go ahead and check it out if you're having this issue. Today, we're going to be replacing these.Just to make it easy on ourselves, we're actually going to remove these two bars.

They haven't broken yet. So we just need a little Phillips to undo that screw and it should come right out. This will be an extremely easier fix if we had a couple more hands with us.All right once you take that out, this tube should just come right out. First thing we want to do is find the right size Allen key to fit in the top like that. And then I am using a half inch socket for the bottom nut.

We might need to use power tools here, but we didn't have it too tight so it's coming off by hand, just like that. We can pull the big long bolt through. And now we're going to have two different pieces, one on the bottom like this and same exact one on top, but our top ones are intact still. So, we're going to leave the top one in there. But now, we can take these guys out.

All right. Now we can take our replacement parts, put them in just like that. Take our plastic piece from the bottom, take our bolt from the top, feed that down through. Put that washer on there and now the nut. And then, of course we're just going to grab our Allen key and our socket and tighten that down.So now we can go ahead and start to reassemble all of our rods.

Well, as you guys saw, it was a very quick and easy installation process. All we really needed was a couple tools to get the job done real quick. And even if I had maybe a couple of extra set of hands, it would have been a lot quicker. So, this is also going to be for not only the Batwing awning, but also your Foxwing awning. So now that that's done and everything's fixed, I'm just going to go ahead and go back to enjoy my awning. Again, thanks for watching. Adam with Etrailer.

Replacement Hinge Insert Kit for Rhino-Rack Batwing and Foxwing Awnings - Qty 2 - RRCA1175

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (93 Customer Reviews)

Replaces damaged hinge inserts on your Rhino-Rack Batwing or Foxwing awning. Connects awning poles to the hinge. Includes 2 hinge inserts.


Extremely quick shipping and OEM parts which is excellent. The average rating has more to do with the extremely poor design of the Batwing Awning. The design puts way to much undue pressure on the hinge section so this is going to be a constant problem area resulting in failure and breakage.It would be smart to have extra parts for when , not if, it happens. I would definitely recommend not buying a batwing awning because of the design.


Easy replacement part for my Foxwing awning. These are plastic but are designed to be a breakaway point when the wind catches it and it flies up to minimize damage to the rest of the awning. Easy to do with just one set of hands, there are videos showing how to do it.


Our batwing wound up breaking in a wind storm. This was the exact part we needed to fix it and put it back into working order. Super quick shipping as well!


I ordered these as a precaution as my brother-in-law also has a Rhino-Rack Batwing. His got caught in a gust of wind and broke several of the hinge inserts. Hopefully I will never need to use mine. etrailer has always been helpful and a great company to do business with.


Work just like the original; fragile and frustrating, the idea of having these be replaceable is really good. But in my experience if one breaks just replace them all. I had one break, replaced it…. Then the next one broke…until all of the originals broke and had to be replaced within the same 2 week trip. I am considering having some machined out of a stronger material for me, I know the idea is to have a “weak” link to protect the rest but these are a bit too weak and have never broken in a situation where any other components would have been damaged if they did not fail but these are a necessity until I find a better way or get a higher quality awning, they work and are easy to replace.


5e parts showed up quickly & were easy to install


Thank you so much! I couldn't even get these from folks are the best!


Super fast delivery and great customer service.

Great, still working just fine

Our batwing awning hing broke after high wind and e trailer saved us by getting part to us within same week of order!


Easy to order, quick response.


Typically when a company designs a product to break that's a bad thing, but not so much here. Rhino-Rack beats the competition once again and designed their hinges to break when too much force is applied instead of bending the entire awning. I had my foxwing set up and got distracted (squirrel!) then a huge gust of wind came up over the hill and the entire awning lifted up and flopped over onto my truck! I expected to see bent metal and a ruined awning but instead it was only two hinges that snapped right at the base. Bummer for sure but the rack was unharmed and the new parts were an easy replacement with basic tools. I now keep an extra hinge in the attached pouch on my awning.

Pro-tip, stake down those awnings!

One year later and Ive finally figured out that its a good idea to stake down the awning so I dont need to keep buying these replacement hinges. I still keep extras in my toolbox just in case of emergencies.

Super fast, got what I needed

Been great, was able to pre-stage the next part casually from wind. These are very easy to keep in glove box etc

Tried to order this item locally from a competitor, they were supposed to be in stock and werent.

I then found that etrailer had them in stock for the exact same price. Placed my order and had tracking information for that order within a couple hours. I then received my order 3 days later.

This is how customer service should be. Especially at this current time with the pandemic and companies claiming they can't get in stock or it takes them an extra week or two to ship out an item due to limited staff


Got the parts fast! They were packed with care and a perfect fit! Carol wrote us afterwards to make sure we were content with our order. We found this company by searching the internet, but will use etrailer again because of the personalized customer service.


So here is the story: Bought a bat wing awning and was super stoked about it. That was until I set it up in the wind and quickly snapped 3 of the 4 hinges. Unfortunately I had to spend a sunny shade less day in the Wyoming sun. After getting home and taking a second look at the awing I realized the hinges are actually a engineered weak link that probably saved me from wrecking the whole awning. Ordered a few replacements from etrailer. The new hinges arrived quickly and worked exactly as described. Hopefully I don’t have to order any more replacements anytime soon but, if I do I know where I will buy them from.


Two of the Delrin hinges for my Rhino Rack Batwing (also purchased from broke after a surprise 40+ mph gust of wind caught all of us by surprise. I believe this is an intentional feature from the manufacturer designed to prevent snapping poles, etc. I used the two extra hinges included with the awning to easily repair the awning. I purchased these extra hinges “just in case” and keep them in the accessory pouch that’s a part of the awning.


This product was on backorder
from Rhino Rack due to a faulty mfg process. This affected new Batwing units and replacement parts alike and was no fault of eTrailer. Carol kept in contact with updates and made the entire transaction smooth. Will shop again.


No time. No issues.


Lesson to self… don’t put up your batwing in high winds but if you do buy your replacement hinges from E-Trailer. Fast reliable service at a great price! Thank you E-Trailer!


Worked with no flaws. These break away peices are hard to find so i was glad that the wait was not to long.

Fantastic no fails

These are great spare parts to have as they are design to break if strong winds are present and your awning is not tied down. I learned the hard way to not tie down the awning as the day was calm, but it quickly changed. Always tie down your awning and have spare parts on hand. Etrailer customer service was great in working with me and helping me get some spares quick so I can continue on my road trip through Panamerica.


Pretty simple, these replace the plastic bits on the Foxwing or Batwing 270 degree awnings that sometimes break. Mine got caught in a sudden burst of wind right as I was trying to deploy the awning, snapping the plastic bits. Ordered these, they were shipped and delivered very quickly, and I was back in business in short order. And they have performed beautifully so far.


Wind is the enemy of any awning. My batwing awning has been the best addition to my setup. but 40-60 mph winds flipped it up last month and broke three of the hinges. but the ingenious design of the batwing makes the hinge the "weak point" on purpose. Replace a cheap hinge versus buy an whole new awning for 800? took 10 minutes to swap out three hinges. very easy. Everyone should have some spare hinges in your kit.


The hinge is quick and easy to install and fits perfectly.

As the hinge is the pivot point for the awning and takes the weight while opening and closing it would be much better if it were made out of a more durable material, even if it were at the expense of a bit of extra weight.

by: is an excellent company to order products from, fast delivery, and product follow ups. I ordered some repair parts and got them back fast. Friendly service and knowledgeable folks.
