The cargo basket is very sturdy and easy to put together. It's a little challenging to install especially by yourself. This rack DOES NOT FIT properly on the Thule Aeroblade Base Rack (7501, 7502). I had to flip one of the brackets to the inside so it wouldn't end up on top of the rack end piece which would not be secure. Seemed to work OK. People highly recommended the cargo net which I bought but you need quite a pile of stuff to make it tight enough to be secure so I invested in some heavy

Worked well to reduce the wind noise from our older round bar Yakima rack system. Straps that hold the faring to the bar were brittle and broke into pieces. I contacted Yakima and they replaced them with a new set quickly. Installation of straps was harder than it needed to be. Straps naturally bend in the opposite direction of the way they are installed. Not insurmountable, but could be better engineered for a company as good as Yakima.
