FAQ:Q: What else is needed to complete a basic rack set up?
A: Just crossbars and locks. Check the Fit List to find the correct length crossbar. Locks are not required, but a really good idea.
Q: How tall is it?
A: The height from the bottom of the tower to the top of the cross bar is about 10 3/4 inches.
Q: Is there a way I can make it taller?
A: Nope, this is as tall as she goes. Any higher would compromise stability.
Q: How much weight can I put on it?
A: Each car will have a different weight capacity. Check the Fit List to find out your car’s weight capacity. Loading elephants or in-laws, on the roof of your vehicle is definitely not recommended.
Q: How do I know if the towers are installed correctly?
A: Check the safety steps in the product instructions. These guidelines will show you if the fit is correct. Make sure that the black plastic base that cradles the crossbar is completely contacting the crossbar. This will make the towers stand up straight.
Q: How much can I carry?
A: This varies by vehicle, load type and crossbar length. Check the fit list to find out what load types (bikes, skis, boats, etc.) and weight capacity applies to your car. The fit list will also tell you the best crossbar length (48”, 58”, 66”, or 78”) to use. You can go up one size if necessary, but duck your head.
Q: Will the rack make a lot of noise?
A: Maybe. Wind noise is hard to predict, but it is more often an issue when the rack has little or no load. We make two products, the Fairing and Windjammer, to help control this situation. Large loads tend to dampen noise also.If you have a sunroof the fairing is a good way to help control air flow.
Q: Will it damage my car?
A: We take fitting cars very seriously, and do everything we can to minimize any effect our rack may have on your cars. However, anything coming into contact with a car’s finish, our racks included, will have some effect over time, and some cars are more prone to these issues than others. So where the possibility of such issues is predictable, we make note of that in the Fit List. When the rack will not be in use for an extended period, it is a good idea to take the rack off of the car. You can also do a lot for yourself by: (1) Making sure the car is clean and well waxed prior to installing the rack, (2) Following all instructions for installation and usage, and (3) avoiding situations, like car washes, where the rack may be impacted.
