Strap It Down On a Roof Rack

We're burning through summer faster than Mel Gibson is burning through his career (and that's FAST). Before the leaves start to turn and that all-too-familiar chill hits the air, get away for one last escape. Whether it's off-roading, camping, kayaking or mountain biking, you can minimize your hassle and maximize your leisure time by adding on a custom-tailored rack to your vehicle, hauling your gear safely and securely anywhere the road takes you.

Roof racks are ingenious in their design. They store all of your recreational gear up and out of your line of sight—not blocking the rear of your vehicle the way hitch-mounted racks tend to do. This also translates to extra room in the cab for snacks, beverages, perishable items or the girlfriend your buddy was too chicken to say no to. A bike roof rack is forged from aluminum or steel tubing and capable of holding up to 300 pounds of evenly distributed weight.

With products produced by time-tested manufacturers, Yakima racks for example, each kit is personally-tailored to your specific make, model and year and comes complete with all the necessary mounting hardware for a quick and easy installation. In addition, all components are sealed against the elements with a tough black-powder coating that resists corrosion and delivers a high level of performance and long life of sturdy reliability.

Plus, it has the added benefit of universally working with most cargo carrier systems, enabling you to transport a veritable trunk full of stuff on your roof. Because sometimes you need a little extra space for smaller things like additional luggage or the souvenirs that seem to take up triple the space they did in the store. For this, and a wide range of other items, rooftop carriers come in handy, instantly expanding your storage capability while allowing for more leg room and a more comfortable ride in the cab.

And for those worried about security, many rooftop carriers allow you to lock your belongings when you have to leave your vehicle unattended, effectively protecting the contents of the carrier from thieves. They feature a snap-on mounting system, providing quick installation and simple removal for convenient storage between trips. Constructed from all-weather ABS, rooftop carriers come in three standard sizes and provide up to 17 cubic feet of cargo room. Plus, products like the Yakima SkyBox provide an additional level of convenience with spring-loaded hinges that allow you to it from either side with just one hand.

A roof rack a must for anyone who hauls anything, anywhere. Is that you? Simple to install, they arrive free of shipping and more than make up for their cost through the high level of convenience they provide.
