A premium rooftop ski carrier should be easy to mount without tools, easy to access with gloves on, and provide safe and secure transport for your valuable skis or snowboards. The Thule Flat Top Ski and Snowboard Rack delivers on all counts. The unique Speed-Link mounting system lets you install the Flat Top's carriers quickly and easily. Just position the carriers over the load bars, rotate the Speed-Link mounts 90 degrees, and then wrap the rubber straps around the load bars until the T-ends can be placed in the pockets on the other side of the Speed-Links. Tighten all 4 Speed-Link knobs and you're done, with no tools required. The Speed-Links can be secured to Thule rack systems, round bars and most factory racks.
To load your skis push the generous size buttons on the end of each carrier to open the arms; the buttons are purposely made large so you can easily manipulate them with gloves on. Position your skis or snowboards in the carriers. The Flat Top is available in a version that holds 6 pairs of fat skis or 4 snowboards, and a version that carries 4 pairs of flat skis or 2 snowboards. Once your skis or snowboards are loaded, close the carriers, pushing down until the latch clicks securely. The latch is designed with 2 settings to accommodate varying thicknesses of skis or snowboards. Your skis or snowboards are now loaded up and ready to go, gently secured with ultra-soft rubber arms that grip without scratching the surfaces of your valuable gear.
The 4 included One-Key locks let you lock the carriers to the rack and lock your gear in the carriers. The Flat Top Ski and Snowboard Rack comes with everything necessary for installation, including detailed instructions. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.134.95 158.95

The product from the beginning seems to be very solid/heavy-duty. The direction book is pretty much a picture book (not a lot of explanation). I was able to get thru it and get the parts installed on my car. Some of the directions I was left scratching my head on exactly what they meant. We brainstormed as a family and come to a conclusion on what the picture was telling us. I now have the whole thing put together with the bars and the fit kit for my 2012 Sonata. It fits solid. I have a Yakima container locked onto the bars, and looks and feels good.Was this review helpful for you?

I was somewhat disappointed with the transaction. The item was shown on the picture to include the end caps. No end caps came with the bars. I had to spend an additional $10.00 at my local Thule dealer to purchase end caps for my trip. I figured that was why the price was lower than others. But it would have been nice to know that the end caps were not included as pictured.Was this review helpful for you?

If someone is intent on stealing your stuff, these straps are not going to be the ultimate protection. However, they are one more thing you can add to your security efforts to make taking your stuff a little more of a hassle and thereby less attractive than someone else's.Was this review helpful for you?
