I would recommend this product to anyone.


It took awhile to assemble but there were no problems. My Craftsman SAE/Metric tools were all I needed. You have to be careful installing the water seal but once done it works perfectly. We go to Florida each winter for 2 1/2 months and it stays on the car the whole time and we have never had a water problem even with the severe rain storms we get down there. We have had it 3 years now and it has been out in the weather 7 1/2 months without issue. We carry two sets of golf clubs in the box. I carry a small folding step stool to load and unload the clubs.

Not all I expected it to be


I'm a frequent camper and fisher, and I hoped this carrier would solve my storage problems. It was difficult to assemble, and very flimsy. Once centered on top of the car, it's difficult to open and like other complaints, does need a front lock to secure the nose. Additionally, the knobs easily strip while trying to tighten on the ubolts which presents a security problem. Seams are not waterproof despite the foam sealant provided. Overall, I've used my case a handful of times and I find it's more a pain than it helps solve my problem.

Needs a lock for front


Needs a lock on the nose end of the carrier. Hit wind in North Dakota and the top flew open even though it was licked. A front lock/latch may have prevented this from happening.
