Needs a lock for front
from Yakima, wa
About Me Intermediate
Comments about Thule Sidekick:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great little carrier
By Ronan the Accuser
from Raleigh, NC
Easy to assemble, my 8 YO had a great time putting it together. Nice size for a up to a couple people, durable and well made.
Difficult to assemble, very flimsy

About Me Advanced
6 screws, 8 nuts, 2 locks, 1 1/2 hours to assemble. This was one of the poorest made products I have yet to encounter. The nuts do not come in a standard or Metric size so even finding a tool to assemble it with was difficult. Due to the angle of the hinges, you basically must close yourself inside the box to attach the hinges and secure them with a nonstandard bolt that you can't reach from inside the box. Now for the side hinges. They look like they are about to snap off every time the product opens and not all of the holes come drilled out. The back 2 were fine but I had to use a power drill so I could cut the holes out so I could attach the front hinges. I have not mounted it on my car yet but the U-bolts to do so have a rougher finish and look like they would scratch up the crossbars. The nuts to attach the U-bolts stick up into the bottom of the carrier, so an item the width of the carrier will not sit flat on the base of it.
