Perhaps all of you already know about them but I have been looking for a long time for a way to get my spade and axe out of the back of my vehicle and found an answer today.

Was looking at the options of attachments to the spare wheel carrier on the back of the Patrol but these start at about $180. Looked at the round thingies for long handled shovels attached to the roof racks but this doesn't work for "D handled" spades and axe handles which are not round.

Found the ideal thing and want to let all of you in on it just in case you don't already know .... please go easy on me if this is old news.

For $20 for 2 at ARB I purchased 4 rubber holders called "Quick Fist" which will hold these 2 objects (haven't tried yet in anger) and they seem to be the answer to what I was after. Thought the revelation might be of interest to others.

$20 for 2. Try these websites or

May be old news but I had been trying to find a solution for ages and perhaps others have to. The salesman explained he uses them for fishing rods on the racks and even to hold a torch on his cargo barrier.

Good on you mate. It's good to have such reference on ExplorOz for such gadgets.
One never knows when one needs exactly this solution.

Well Trevor I haven't seen them before. Think I know where I could use a couple too. You may have saved me some grief.

Thanks Mate
