Looking forward to car-topping my Lifetime 10" fisher kayak. I will be adding a couple ratchet straps for over the top of the kayak and thru the doors also for added safety. Plus of course tying down the bow and stern to secure spots. Looks like I will be going with "quick loops" (ck ebay) as my golf doesn't have anyplace to tie to under the bumpers. Always best to be safe than sorry and not lose something on top of your vehicle at hwy speeds. I did my homework and this by far was the best value for lighter loads.
This is a great and affordable way for my wife to carry a ladder up top instead of in the car.
Great customer service, fast shipping.
Nice product, good price but nuts ands washers were missing. Luckily I had parts that would fit.
I bought it to haul kayaks. Works fine for that. I don't think that i"d put the 150 lbs. on it that it is rated for. I used "swim noodles" to cushion the bars. For large loads, you might want to get ratcheting straps. My kayaks weigh about 90 lbs. No problems with them with stock straps. A good Universal Rack for the price.
Purchased this item through Ebay at a very reasonable price. Item arrived before specified ETA in mint condition. All in all, it is very easy to purchase items from this seller and description is thorough. Will definitely follow this seller on Ebay.
It is to be noted that I reside in Canada however I have entered Virginia as my State in order to have a chance at winning an iPad mini as indicated on the flyer included with the item.
May I suggest that you add Canada to your State list?
Love it - what you see is what you get; no frills but it does the job when called for. Think how many A&W Root Beers I can buy with my savings over the higher priced selections!
works well, only thing I wish was that the rubber foot pads attached more securely, but I just glued them on.
This worked fine for my purpose, which was to transport a bed headboard. I would prefer ratchet tie-downs, because I couldn't get the straps tight enough with the alligator clips. And the rubber bottoms slide too much, but I glued shelf liner to the bottoms and that worked better. It sure beats buying a $40,000 pick-up!
We were traveling from AZ to TN...over 1,500 miles. These worked great!! Super thankful we were able to attach this to my Mazda, then strap a rooftop carrier bag to the top and have the extra storage.
I could not find cross bars to fit into my existing factory roof mounts at a reasonable cost. I needed cross bars to attach kayak holders. This is a great buy for a basic roof carrier. It is easy to mount and universal to fit on different vehicles.
Got this as extra storage on my Ford Focus, works great! Able to put almost everything we needed on top of the car instead of cramming everyone and thing into the car. Only dowsidw is the strap, will need to be replaced before too long.
After looking at other roof bar systems that cost in upwards of $200 or more, I thought there would have to be a better alternative. I found these roof bars via Amazon for around $45. To say the least, these roof bars do their job flawlessly. The bars adjusted easily to my KIa, and were simple to install. The best part is they transport my SUP all around Lake Tahoe. I take trips less than an hour, but the bars and the paddle board stay in place, what more could I ask for?
THIS ROOF RACK WORKS LIKE A CHARM SOLID HOLD ON ROOF OWNED TWO YAKIMA RACKS IN PAST BUT DIDNT WANT TO SPEND 600 AGAIN YOU CANNOT GO WRONG IF YOUR LOOKING FOR AN INEXPENSIVE RACK TO HAUL YOUR YAK THANKS FOR BRING QUALITY GEAR FOR LESS TO THE MASSES
I purchased this carrier so would not have to pull a trailer for my canoe. I was hesitant at first, but once the product arrived, and I fitted it to the car top I was absolutely delighted.
This company DiscountRamps.com is a real pleasure to deal with. From the ordering to the actual receipt of the product it could not have been any more simple.

i liked. price was right, easy to set up. great product.
This roof rack was easy to install and serves its purpose. Inexpensive solution to transporting 2 kayaks to and from the lake.
Bought this rack so I could transport my 15 ft. kayak on my Honda Accord. The crossbars are substantial. As mentioned in another review, the rubber pads on the mounting brackets work but could use so improvement. The straps are OK for now but are a bit thin so I will probably replace them at the end of the season. Overall, this product is what I expected, an economical alternative to much higher prices systems. I will use this system in combination with foam blocks that fit the rails.
Ordered this item and the T-Rack kayak carriers for my 2012 Ford Escape. The items ordered are exactly what I need to carry my kayaks at a much, much cheaper price. However the materials and the items are not cheaply made. They met all expectations.
The one exception are the feet that hold the bars onto which the kayak carriers are attached. I spot super glued the bottom part of the feet to the top part. Hopefully these will last as long as the other items. Will see, but I honestly think they will do the job perfectly.
Good price, easy to assemble. Bought to carry kayak while pulling camper. Foot pads need improvement.
I bought this for my Toyota Camry and it is a great item for a very decent price. I love it and its pretty simple to put together. The ONLY thing I have been upset with this roof rack is that when I bought it it came with one short bolt. Other than that I've had no problems with anything.
Great product, just installed on my Toyota Corolla and they fit perfect. Bars are heavy duty and the strap system is great.
My brother recommended this for my kayaks, he uses his for his canoe. Good price, good quality. Set up in under 30 minutes.
I, like this item looks like it will work for me . Plus it's a goog price ! Need some time before I can order
I bought this product to move across the country on a budget. I only had the space inside my car to move and I needed an inexpensive way to gain extra space. I didn't have the money for the roof racks designed for my car and these provided me with an excellent alternative. I was able to buy an inexpensive cargo container and strap it onto these racks. When I called Discount Ramps to place the order the man I spoke with was absolutely perfect in all aspects. He was kind, patient, experienced, capable, and competent to complete his job and answering all of my questions. Not only is the company easy to work with and professional, so were their employees and products. I recommend this product and company for anyone looking for an inexpensive, hassle free way to gain extra space.
I read the reviews of the product before I bought it, and it appeared to be what I needed. the only concerns listed by other reviews were about the rubber pads needing to be glued on, and the claps possibly eventually tearing through the strap. i won't be using it that much, so I don't expect any problems.
Assembly is a little tricky and the round bars make attaching racks such as the J or Thule a little tricky but once assembled with racks, very easy on and off and very secure. Carried 2 kyacks on highway speeds and no issues. Non marking. However, make sure you research where to place them on the roof. That is important and determines ultimate success of the racks. Have used 3 times and looking forward to the summer.
