Reviews - Rhino-Rack 2500 Euro (Square Bar) Rack - Black
4.6 stars - 38 reviews
It was confusing trying to put it together at first because of the two options for installation. Once we figured it out it was fine. Had to adjust - a couple of times on our road trip.
Easy to install and very solid. Go from Oregon to California and these racks are just as good as those twice the price.
Easy on/off , sturdy construction
Fairly easy to install with reading directions carefully.
Easy to install. I have put many other brand racks on vehicles and had to keep checking instruction. These were super easy to install.
This product fit my 2005 Toyota matrix perfectly and is very strong and we'll made. I love this product!
Bought this roof rack to be able to carry my Kayak on my Honda CRV. I installed the rack system the day it arrived and used it shortly thereafter. It worked great. The rack system requires complete assembly and my only complaint would be the instructions includes directions for 3 different vehicles and the attachments in the photos are different than those I receved for my CRV. Got through it and once you figure out one support its easy to do the rest. The distance between support arms front and back is provided, as well as where to place the front rack, but where to place the supports on the arms is not. It took some adjusting which is at an awkward angle, if you want to find the best fit with the anchoring. It would be better if both measurements were provided to insure the support is at the best angle on the edge of the car roof.
This is very well built and was fairly easy to install. The only problem I had was drilling the holes in the gutter protectors. Other than that, the racks fit perfectly and look very nice. I haven't used them yet, but I'm sure they will do the job.â€‹
We have been carrying several kayaks all over with out much worry. Very dependable - and secure
Seems very sturdy and a good option for my car (Ford CMax). Directions were ok for general assembly, but for my car there were two different clamps provided, presumably for front and rear, to get the best fit, but no reference in instructions to which was which. After a few attempts to mount the bars, I found the right combination for the front and rear mounting, and all is good now.
Not too hard to install.
I am extremely happy with this rack. I was looking all over online, and was nervous about buying it because it was by far the cheapest price, but I new this was a good brand. It fit my 2012 Camry perfectly, came with all the parts I needed, and it is extremely sturdy. I have already used it to transport my 2 kayaks with no problems. The only one small negetive is that because it is a square shape, it does make a slight wind nose at highway speeds. It's not annoying or anything, kind of sounds like white noise in the background. I just turned up the radio a little bit and it's gone. No whisle or anything like that. Would buy again in a second.
I think the rack is great. The instructions to install it, however, are not great. The drawings are incorrect, and the little peices that are cut to length that slide into the bar as a sort of stop, were hard to cut to the right length, or understand what length they should be cut to. I did not use them, as a result.
Otherwise, it seems like a great rack system. It whistles when I drive, so it is quite easy to take off when I do not need it.
This is the second Rino product that we purchased for our cars and we are satisfied with the product. I chose Cargo Gear due to their excellent price. Product arrived quickly. Very pleased.
I bought this set-up for my 2011 Fit Sport and it works nicely so far. Very sturdy.
They bolted right on. Took a little bit to figure out instructions since we had factory spots
Easy to install, reasonably good instructions. The measuring strips I found basically useless, we ended up throwing them out after two failed fitment attempts. You're better off just installing the rack by eye and leaving everything loose until the end. Only complaint I have is the wind noise, which is very appearant at 75+ (highway speeds) even when (possibly only when) the rack is unloaded.
Perfect fit for the Matrix 2006. Very easy to install and strong. Great way to leave space inside the vehicle during travel. Excellent device for hauling wood and other items.
Well-constructed and easy to install on my 2012 Subaru Legacy.
I'm just going to break it down to facts:
1. Easy to install
2. I've used it for 3k miles and have loaded it up quite heavily, no issues
3. The load bars work perfectly with accessories designed for Thule rectangular bars.
4. There is no coating on the load bars (Thule and Yakima are rubber coated), just paint
Loved it. Holds 2 pairs of j cradles and easily holds 2 of my 10 foot kayaks.
I've been hauling my canoe around and this rack has been perfect. Easy to assemble and attach to the car. No complaints at all.
Used for kayaks with thule compatible kayak holders.... Works fine BUT. The instructions for installation of the rack on the car roof were wrong at a certain point. The front bar/ feet/rubber mounts were fine and installation was no problem. The rear bar however was odd. The instructions had the arrow on the rubber mounts going the wrong way which is impossible noting the cutout on the rubber mounts must match the water channel in the roof of the car. When reversed it worked fine and installed easier than a thule rack. 1 thing they never tell you the hex wrench they give you has a torque measurement device built into it . Took some close examination of the wrench to,notice it.
PURCHASED THIS ITEM FOR A CARGO CARRIER FOR A FAMILY VACATION TO THE JERSEY SHORE.EAST ASSEMBLY, STRONG, INEXPENSIVE COMPARED TO OTHER COMPANIES.
Bought this for my son to transport his fishing kayak. It was easy to install and well constructed. Fit his car perfectly.
Bought this to use for my kayak. Fits perfectly and was easy to install by myself.
Simple installation - and I'm the guy that can't install anything. Goes on with no drilling. You can add and remove by loosening 2 screws in about 1 minute. I put it on when I need a carrier and take it off when I don't.
2/3 the cost of similar Thule Rack with identical function and durability.
Very good product I am very pleased!
I am very happy with the Rack. It is everything I was looking for. Fits nice and snug. Half the cost of Thule. It works well for me.
Received package quickly. Directions were clear and simple. Didn't need help putting it on. Makes for a noisier ride but believe there is an attachment for the front that re routes the wind, just need to eventually purchase that but no big deal, it was expected. I am happy with my purchase.
We bought this roof rack for our new Toyota Avalon, in part because the "big name manufacturers" didn't offer one for the car. The fact that it cost at least $100 less than a rack from one of those "big name manufacturers" was a bonus. The directions were easy to follow, with only one very minor discrepancy that was easy to work around. Without that, this would be a five star review.
I had naked roof so did lots of web searches to find right style and best price and Rhino-racks was hands down best and easy to install.
Perfect fit - easy to install -great service from the dealer
I purchased this because it was much less money than other brands - but it is well made.
The set went together very easy one direction was wrong, they said the plastic spacer for the front should be cut to a length that was way to short to fit the front of the car. A little DIY and I had them fitting.
