it was easy to install and it appears to be water tight. Has a great looking appearance.

Traveling to New Jersey from Texas I found on the return trip I had more items to bring home than we started out with I decided to surf the net to purchase a cargo carrier when I came across Auto Anything. My first purchase was the cargo carrier. I went with the Yakima as the customer service gentleman suggested for my sized car. I did not realize that I needed the rack system until the carrier was delivered, therefore I had to stay another five days until the rack system arrived. I am a 58 year old female and I was able to install by myself. There was a little difficulty with the carrier as the clamps were out of reach because of the direction the unit opened. Fortunately I had a sun roof and was able to climb out there. After installation of everything and packing the carrier, I took the car for a test drive. All seem to work well so the next day we were off to return home. Well, aproximately 450 miles into the trip, the carrier flipped open and I lost nearly all my items. Fortunately no one was injured. The lock was not strong enough to endure a gust of wind that ripped that cover up. Nowhere did I read that I should perhaps use tie downs to secure that cover. I had seen many vehicles with these and many did not have additional ties. I only packed sheets, towels, pillows and comforters as I realized not to put anything heavy weight in there because a sudden stop would push everything forward and probably cause a hazard. I did not think what I had packed to be too heavy for the unit and it should have been fine if not for the strong wind that I encountered.

I was skeptical at first that this wouldn't work too well but decided to buy it and give it a try. The shipping was fast and I couldn't wait to give it a try. I'm glad I bought the wheel step. I have an auxiliary tank in the back of my truck and needed to stand on the tire to be able to see to fill it. Now I just whip out my wheel step and I'm good to go. Perfect height to be able to see what I'm doing when I fill the tank. Thanks, Great product!
