I would buy this product again, but...


The product itself is great for the money. The only issue I had was the provided bolts were not long enough to accommodate my cross bars. The cross bars I have are manufactured by Thule. I used the fit my car feature on the Thule website which suggested this Hull-A-Port model 834 as being compatible with my cross bars. To Thule's credit I did call and they immediately sent out proper length carriage bolts at no charge to allow proper installation

Excellent well made product!

Still ticking!


I have owned this rack for 10 years and for the past 5 it has not come of my car. I live in New Jersey so it goes through all of the seasons but I also kayak through all of them. Other racks from other companies I have owned rusted out or broke many times by now. I couldn't be happier with this rack. I have included a picture of the only damage 10 years has done but to me it's no problem.
