Took a little longer to install than I tought it would. More importantly was the fact the locks froze the first day of use and it was quite difficult to get the locks open to get the skis off upon arrival. had to get a bottle of de-icer to keep on hand.

Appearance: they look nice but are a little bulky. Ease of installation: really easy to install, just a couple Alan screws. Price/value: IMO they are fairly priced. Quality: I have only had these on my car for about a week so I can't really speak to long term quality but they have held up well so far. Overall: overall I rate a 4 out if 5 just based on the whistle I get at about 45 mph. Maybe getting a fairing will help with that.

I love this rack it mounted perfectly to the stock roof bars on my 4runner. The weekend I got it I took it up to thesnow and it fit 4 boards with ease. The rack is really sturdy and didn't budge at all even with the our little detour through some dirt trails. Like I said I love it specially for the price I would defiantly recommend it.

the rack is sturdy and installed pretty easily. it holds 4 pairs of average sized skis. I have been unable to install the locks as the instructions provided are not helpful in figuring out how to get the lock cylinders into the housing. that is an area for improvement, and if I cannot resolve it shortly I will return the unit.
