Bad Design not easy to install
Review by Gage Posted on June 3, 2020I was really excited to get this for my highlander. For all of that money I was expecting to get a quality product. The adapter that I needed to get for the round bars was not quality. First of all the base that the adapter for the round bar needed to mount to, has this bolt at the bottom of it that...read more you need to loosen. This still is not easily accessible because of this black tab that gets in the way. Trying to screw in the bolt to the round bar adapter was the worst. Because of that tab I had to screw the bolt in on an angle which caused the threads on the soft metal adapter to cross thread instantly. It was junk after that. I tightened it up as much as possible to secure the round bar. I know it is trashed now and will never come back off. The other adapter I could not loosen so I had to pry that black tab back to get access to the bolt. Just a mess. Cheaply made round bar adapter and a poor design made not a fun experience. Oh and to make sure that no one steals it from off the car you need to buy a 60$ set of locks... how nice. Highly disappointed in my experience with this after spending almost 700$ on everything.
