The only reason I gave this product such a low rating is because it DOES NOT fit the round rails. I had to go to the hardware store and buy nylock nuts and use a ratchet to put them on. The bottom piece that fastens the cross bar to the rail is flat where the rails are round. I couldn't return the product as we were leaving the next day so it lives on the van. The products itself is sturdy and easily made our 2,000 mile round trip in -30F to 11F degree weather just fine. So....if you have a rail that is square or more flat buy this product:-)
The connector bolts should be at least 1/4" longer so you can use the rubber pads... had to remove them to make connections ridiculous design flaw!
These bars are great. They are half (or more in some installations) the price of the OEM at the dealer and they do the job very well.
The locking mechanism is a wrap around lock rather than a hook lock so taking the bars on and off on a continual bases is not ideal. It's designed to install and stay on the vehicle. As with all cross bars it increases wind noise at higher speeds unless you have a deflector in front of the bars.Be careful with installation lay a cloth just below the rail area the bracket will install onto as the wrap around metal bracket could scratch your vehicle's roof.
Product serves the intended purpose. Hoisted a loaded clam shell (Approx. 160#) directly on top of these load bars. Drove 180 miles round trip with no issues. Great product for dollars spent. Easy to install and adjust. Will remove when not in use to reduce drag on vehicle and improve fuel efficiency.
