Racks were easy to assemble and install. I made small black marks in the door jam to facilitate getting them back in the proper position since I don't leave them on all the time. They seem quite secure, but I have not yet tested them on a longer trip on rough roads to see if they loosen up in use.

This happened on I-95 at 60-65 mph. The rack was properly installed, following instructions step by step and making sure that all the measurements were correct. Also they were tested to make sure they had a strong hold on the car. The vinyl stickers they tell you to put on the metal pieces that hold onto the car are probably what caused the accident. When they get wet, they get slippery and your entire rack becomes unreliable for transporting large items.

The rack is sturdy, well made and looks good. However it does not install easily, it will only fit on the frames of the side doors and is not easy to fit, the rubber seals must be pulled back. Would have been easier if the instructions said that. It will not be easily removed. The feet also fall off too easily and are bound to get lost when off the vehicle.

Received and installed Q Tower Base Racks on 2009 Chevy Crew Cab 2500. Took most of day with all measurements to get them in position, not far enough back actually but they are where they are. Don't like the fact that they smash down weather stripping on doors leading to inordinate amount of wind noise, installed deflector, not much help but looks cool. Don't like that no load limit listed, had to call retailer to call Yakima. Wanted 3rd center bar and bases, had to order a twosome of bars, can't get just one, too tall to work with roof slope so more bucks wasted. Hard to balance tension side to side for even snap down and hard to lock.
