stars - Awesome and relatively easy to install

I got this to help haul kayaks. It works great. Bars are pretty quiet too. I also have the Thule Hull-a-Port Aero kayak carrier on them, and still not too bad. My only complaint was that the instructions are a little too vague, but nothing YouTube couldn't solve. No need to have them installed if you have the slightest of know-how.
