LOS ANGELES (Aug. 18, 2020)  Front Runner Outfitters (Front Runner), the South African-based manufacturer known for dependable, innovative, and thoughtfully designed overlanding and camping equipment, announces the release of the Quick Release Awning Mount, an interface designed to give users the freedom to install or remove awnings in seconds and with no tools.

The Quick Release Awning Mount is designed to be used with Front Runner Racks and works with all Front Runner Awnings, as well as other popular awning brands.

For added security and peace of mind, the Quick Release Awning Mount comes with two lockable latches with built-in safety catches. To remove, simply release the two latches and the awning can quickly be lifted and taken away giving users the option to easily remove the awning when not in use. Not only does the mount come with Front Runner’s proven durability and thoughtful design, the kit also includes wall mount brackets for efficiently storing an awning out of the way in a garage space.

With a record number of people turning to vehicle travel to access the outdoors and recreate, Front Runner’s products provide users with durable and functional solutions for carrying cargo, staying organized, and setting up the ultimate base camp. The Quick Release Awning Mount adds another layer of thoughtful integration to improve the user experience with their Front Runner rack system and provides a great solution for easily installing or removing an awning for different adventures.
