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?
