12mm Thru Axle for Kid Trailer
Robert Axles for Kid Trailers are designed specifically to fit your 12mm thru-axle bike and allow attachment of any hitch-mounted trailer. These fit any trailer that has two wheels and a single point of attachment to the axle. This includes all the two-wheeled child, pet and cargo trailers such as: Thule, Chariot, Burley, Instep, Carry Freedom, and many more.
Purchase our Kid Trailer axle for your bike. Share your stoke for cycling with your kids. Simplify your life by allowing quick and secure attachment of your trailer to your best and favorite bike. Enjoy the adventure.
Since 2013, we have been an important part of cyclists’ adventures all over the world. Our axles have millions of miles on them in mountain bikes and road bikes, carbon bikes, fat bikes and e-bikes. Our axles are specifically designed to handle the high-torque loads generated by e-bikes.
Your stock thru-axle is not strong enough to haul your precious cargo! Our axles are 3 to 4 times stronger than the stock axle that came with your bike. Our stainless steel axle ends provide a safe and secure attachment point of the hitch to the axle. The axle is quick to install and remove with a common 5mm hex key.
Our axles are not just designed in the USA, but are made here as well. They are machined by avid cyclists to the tightest standards in the industry. We safety test, to failure, every batch of axles we produce to ensure they exceed your expectations.
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including nickel acetate, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
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 diameter of this axle is 12 mm and the true length of the axle shaft is 184 mm. Spacers included for a 169, 175, or 184 mm fitment. 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. We suggest a +/- 2mm axle length fit is perfect for all our axles.
- This axle has a 1.0 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.

Great solution to using a modern bike for a trailer hauler! Why trailer companies haven’t progressed is beyond me. Works flawlessly with my Thule child trailer.

After purchasing the 12mm thru axle for my daughters chariot it has a few issues. After greasing the axle and replacing it with my original axle I could not get it to losen up even tho I greased it and put it to the correct torque it would not let go. The 5mm hex option stripped the end and now I’m only left with my jaw locking pliers which is kind of a pain. Wish they had a different option like using a wrench.

Wow I’m speechless in less then 10 hours they wrote back to me and are replacing my axle under warranty. I can honestly say this caught me by surprise. Amazing customer service from these guys!!!! Keep it up guys

I was super frustrated trying to find the right axle that would work with my bike and Thule Chariot. I spent hours on the internet and phone trying to find the right specs, thread count, and trying to understand something I never have dealt with before. I finally reached out to a buddy that knows bikes better, and he immediately recommended Robert Axle Project. 10 minutes later the axle was on its way due to their awesome Axle Finder app. It was on my bike a couple days later and I was cruising around town with my boy. I just wish I knew about them before…

Great product, so glad I found your company! I bought a 2021 Trek Fuel EX 8, and wanted to continue to tow our two boys in our Burley Bee. Your axle fit perfectly, did it’s job! Will recommend to anyone in need.
Christian (verified owner) –
Great product and great service. ÅFits my 2021 Haibike Allmtn 6 with Thule Chariot kid trailer. Bike was not listed in axle finder app, but order was manually checked. They even asked for specs and pictures of original bike axle so they could add it to their database.

I got the 12MM THRU AXLE FOR KID TRAILER to add to my AZUB ti-fly x recumbent trike to allow me to pull a dog (formerly kids) trailer and a cargo trailer. It shipped quickly and attached flawlessly. Thanks guys!
Hooman Tabarestani (verified owner) –
I bought this Axle for the future as I want to buy a two-wheel trailer to carry my kayak with it.
I already have a single fat wheel trailer, which I bought a BOB trailer’s Thru-Axle and Hardware-Kit for it, so I purchased this Axle simultaneously as I knew I was going to need it soon. As a result, I haven’t used this one yet, but I am sure it will do it and solve my problem as the other Axle and kit already did for my single wheel trailer.

Fit perfectly on our Trek Powerfly.4 FS. EBike is a perfect way to tow a Burley dog trailer, and Burley didn’t make the size / thread configuration we needed.
Shipping was quick and their website information helped ensure I ordered the correct axle.
Zack Higbee (verified owner) –
The instructions were very helpful. Easy to swap with my axle once the sizing was set correctly.
Shipped to Canada lightning fast over a weekend. Fit perfectly. The selector works. I feel good that I was able to get a 12mm axle so I could use my cross country bike. Went out on our first ride and everything stayed secure. Thank you for supporting different designs.
