Design and instructions could be better

The rack arrived when expected and was in perfect shape.
The assembly instructions are poor at best, and the short strips for protecting the existing roof rails did not fit the cross rails correctly, unless I was trying to put them on wrong (instructions issue?), so I did not use them.
I could not tighten the clamps enough to get the rack to really "grip" the existing roof rails to my liking without bending them. I had to use stacks of washers between the clamps and the bottom of the cross rails to keep them from bending.
I've only had the rack on the vehicle for one week, but so far so good.
