An upgrade to the pipe carrying accessory of choice of professional van usersWhere to Buy
Introducing the PorteTube Pro..
The first complete redesign of Rhino’s hugely popular 3m PipeTube since its launch in 2005, the PorteTube Pro is Europe’s new leading system for securely and safely transporting copper pipe, plastic conduit and other lengthy materials.
The new stylish design features an upgraded integral locking system and an added rubber seal to reduce water entering the tube. In addition, the PorteTube Pro retains all the features that made it the product of choice for professional van users, such as a market leading carry capacity, twin openings and full professional crash testing and safety accreditation.
The PorteTube Pro’s rubber O-ring seal is located within the end of the connecting sleeve, creating a tight seal when the nose cone is closed – helping to prevent water ingress.
The O-ring seal reduces the oxidation process within the tube. Previously, water ingress could have led to a chemical reaction with the aluminium over time, leaving a residue in the tube.

Where to buy
The new nose cone and connecting sleeve have been redesigned so that the lock is housed inside the tube. Where the old PorteTube’s lock sat below the tube, the new design makes the lock harder to get to and provides a more seamless look and feel.
The new nose cone and sleeve design for the PorteTube Pro incorporates a stronger adjoining hinge, located on top of the system. The new stronger bulkhead has been independently crash tested at Millbrook Proving Ground.
The PorteTube Pro comes with our standard fitting bracket that is compatible with all Rhino roof bars/racks and roof storage systems from other manufacturers*.
Every PorteTube Pro is supplied with a set of spacers that are slotted into the bracket in a specific position to suit our AluminiumRack, ModularRack, DeltaBar and KammBar products respectively.
Please note that the system will also need to have the requisite number of cross bars.
*The PorteTube Pro can also be used on any other roof bar or roof rack system that fits within the bar profile dimensions of 60mm x 45mm.
Fitting instructions are supplied with the product.
