Be careful about road salt


I've used this rack a few times over the past winter. The rack installed easily and securely transported 5 pairs of skis and poles. However, the skis get covered in road salt and grime, which wreaks havoc on your edges to the point where I had to have my skis sharpened. I definitely recommend but be sure to immediately wipe down your skis after removing them from the rack, otherwise you will have rusty edges.

Doesn't work well with the Vertex bike carrier


I tried to install a 9033 on a Vertex Swing Away bike carrier. It seemed very makeshift. The ski tram doesn't sit on the bike carrier; the bar closest to the car is a good 1-2 inches off the bike rack. The ski rack attachment to the vertical post attaches at an awkward angle; and the metal on metal connection is a sure thing to scratch and damage the vertical post. There is little to no padding provided. The ski rack comes with an unnecessary amount of assembly required. The engineering tolerances of the holes to assemble the parts is narrow/challenging. All in all this is an "ok" product- seems like a partial fit from mix and match parts.
