When you're anxious to get on the slopes, you don't want to waste a lot of time fumbling with difficult rack mounts or looking for a step stool so you can get up on the roof to load your skis. When you want to get loaded up and get on the road as quickly as possible, you need the Thule Pull Top Ski and Snowboard Rack. Thanks to Thule's unique Speed-Link mounting system the Pull Top's carriers can be mounted quick as a flash. 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.
But that's not the end of the Pull Top's magic. 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. Push the levers on the bottom of each carrier to the side, and then slide the carriers out to the side of the vehicle to mount your skis or snowboards. With the Pull Top you don't need to stretch and strain to hoist your skis up onto the roof, which can be difficult on vehicles with higher roofs like Vans and SUVs. The Pull Top makes loading almost effortless. Once your skis or snowboards are loaded, slide the carriers back over the roof, lift the levers and close the carrier arms. 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 Pull Top Ski and Snowboard Rack comes with everything necessary for installation, including detailed instructions.
