Consider this your road trip cargo kit! The car roof rack, basket and bag combo kit provides additional storage space for items you can’t quite fit when packing up your vehicle. This simple vehicle cargo solution installs in minutes with no extra tools needed and protects up to 150 lbs. of luggage, camping supplies or sports equipment from damaging sun, dirt and moisture while you’re on the road. Best of all, you save by purchasing the all-in-one kit versus buying each item individually!
The kit’s pair of aluminum roof rack cargo bars are 53-3/8" long and adjust to fit car rails up to 1-3/4" wide, 1-1/2" high, and up to 50" apart. There’s no need for extra tools when installing, you simply slide the bar clamps to the width of your vehicle’s rails up and tighten the hand crank knobs. Two of the knobs are fitted with a lock and key mechanism for security, and a recessed rubber strip along each of the universal roof cross bars provides added grip when the roof carrier is mounted on top. It’s necessary to space the roof bars at least 15" apart in order for the load to be safely balanced.
The Black Widow car roof basket is steel construction, measures 43-1/2"L x 39"W at the base and is 6" tall. It comes in two pieces that assemble in minutes with an Allen wrench (included) and weighs a total of 32 lbs. The rooftop basket’s mounting brackets require no tools for installation, just an easy hand tightening of the assembly’s wing nuts. The brackets also have a universal design to fit both round and square crossbars, if you ever need to mount the roof basket to another vehicle with different bars. The grid openings of the carrier’s base measure 3" x 3-1/8", providing plenty of tie down points for the rooftop luggage bag or other cargo.
The 38" square Summit car top bag is made of heavy gauge nylon fabric treated with PVC to keep rain, dust, or snow at bay, and its zipper is concealed beneath an extra-wide, overlapping flap to prevent moisture from seeping in. The spacious interior gives you an additional 15 cubic ft. of storage space for luggage and other personal items, and there are four built-in tie down straps to secure the bag to the roof basket. These straps also help to cinch the soft-sided bag tight against the loaded gear to minimize flapping and wind resistance. After your trip, the bag folds up for compact storage.
The car roof rack, basket and bag combo has a one year warranty on each of the auto cargo kit’s components.

Needed a little extra room in the car and this rack seems to fit our needs perfectly. The price is great and once we ordered the kit it arrived within a week. I also ordered the basket extension. The bars fit my Jetta Sportwagen without any issues. The towers are already attached to the bars and the rack seems reasonably strong and secure. Only two of the four towers lock onto the car but that is not a big issue. The basket comes in two parts and is only held together with two screws. This seems a little weak but once it is mounted on the bars it's not a problem. With the extension the rack covers almost the entire top of my Jetta Sportwagen. I would definitely recommend this product along with Discount Ramps.
I searched for a while on the type and brand of rack I wanted. I found this and reviews were high so I purchased and am definitely happy with what I received. Cross bars are strong, basket is easy to put on by myself and the bag is solid. Great set up for any family looking for extra room in addition to a universal rack for various other uses!
We ordered this for our family vacation to give us a little extra elbow room inside our vehicle. The product arrived before the scheduled delivery date, installed quickly and met our need at an affordable price.
