Robert Axle for Kid Trailers replaces your stock thru-axle so you can attach a child or cargo trailer to your 12 mm thru axle equipped bike.
This axle is compatible with Burley, Carry Freedom, Chariot/Thule, Croozer, Instep, and many more hitch style trailers.
The true length of the axle shaft is 178 mm, but can be shortened using the included 6 mm spacer. This allows for axle lengths of 172 mm or 178 mm. Please note: Thru-axle lengths do not equal hub standards. An axle has to be longer than the hub to fit in the frame. A 12×148 hub does not equal a 148 mm long axle.
This axle has a 1.5 mm thread pitch.
The axle shaft and axle end are precision CNC machined.
The axle shaft is 7075 aluminum and hard black anodized for rugged durability.
The axle end is stainless steel, which allow for mounting of the hitch provided with your trailer. The threads are M10x1 (metric).
Hardware for attachment of the hitch is included; the hitch is not.
No special tools required. Design allows for installation or wheel removal using your standard 5mm hex wrench.
Designed, built and quality tested in the USA. Proven around the world.
