CARiD offers a range of base roof rack products to let you set up a roof rack easily on any car, van, SUV, or truck – even if was built with a completely bare roof. Basically, they are the components that let you set up a roof rack from scratch, or add to existing factory rain gutters, tracks or even raised roof rails. Four "towers" or "feet" attach to allow addition of two "cross bars" that run across the vehicle from driver to passenger side.

    For cars with bare roofs that aren't equipped with any form of rain gutter edging at all, the Thule® Traverse Footpack offers cushioned foot pads with simple installation that provide a tight, secure fit. Crossbars then lock into the footpads to give you rack carrying ability. Rhino Rack® also offers their Fixed Mounts that fit almost any vehicle roof, that are designed for small two-doors where traditional racks cannot be positioned far enough apart.

    For vehicles equipped with rain gutters along the roof edges, we offer foot clamps shaped and designed just for them. On and off installation is easy, with an easy-grip round knob that adjusts and fine-tunes the level of clamp tightness. For sport utilities with bump-up roof sections or a vertical rise towards the center, Thule® Gutter High Foot Pack and Super High Foot Pack kits let you mount your cross rails higher up with 5-, 8-, and 11-inch height sizings. If your vehicle is equipped with OEM raised side rails or flush rails from the factory, you're halfway there already. Cross rail adapters are available to fit the shape, size, and height of any factory side rails.

    Should you need a roof rack with heavy-duty carrying capacity, we offer kits that come with not two, but THREE CROSSBAR setups. Gutter mounts or foot pad mounts will fit a wide array of vehicles with or without rain gutters - If it's necessary for tracks to be installed on your specific vehicle to support the foot pads, they are included also. Heavy-duty cross bars are typically made from aluminum for maximum strength-to-weight, and footings are crafted from strong glass-reinforced nylon. And if you already have a factory roof rack and find its performance disappointing, we offer replacement rack applications also. Many newer cars and trucks already come with pre-drilled installation points to allow dealer installation if customers select it after the vehicle is manufactured. However, since many dealers overprice these items, your best bet will be found right here in this section.

    Once you've got your cross rails installed, your base rack is in place and a whole world of new load carrying possibilities opens up for you. CARiD offers roof racks that attach to your crossrails specifically designed to hold skis, snowboards, surfboards, boogie boards, bicycles, luggage, cargo trays, and hard shell cargo boxes. Each type of rack comes with the ability to lock your load for theft protection, and all mounting clamps, braces, bars and cover pieces are made from either aluminum, ABS material, powder coated steel or glass-reinforced nylon for strength and resistance to corrosion. Roof rack fairing pieces are also available that attach either in front of your finished rack or on the sides of it to reduce wind resistance and buffeting that causes noise and reduces fuel economy.

      Rooftop Carriers Can Carry All Your Water Sports Equipment
      So you've got a kayak, canoe, surfboard, or stand up paddleboard you can't wait to use. Before you can do that, however, you've got to find a practical way to get your toy to a lake or ocean - safely, and without damage. While these watersport items embody grace and fluidity in the waves, the truth is they're extremely cumbersome to transport on land.

      Rooftop Carriers Can Carry All Your Winter Sports Equipment
      Skiing and snowboarding are not inexpensive hobbies. After purchasing skis, poles, shoes, clothes, lift passes, and even lodging accommodations, you've shelled out enough money that it becomes tempting to skip spending more on a rooftop carrier. But if you've ever jammed all your snow gear inside your car, you know how chaotic, slushy, and awkward that can be - especially if you're trying to make room for friends and luggage. That's why we offer cleverly-designed rooftop carriers that won't break your bank in the Ski & Snowboard Racks section of our website.

      Roof Rack Base Systems - The Foundation for Sports Equipment Carriers
      More than ever, we have observed that young and old alike are engaging in outdoor activities. Everything from biking to skiing to canoeing is being pursued with avid interest and excitement. There are folks outside in all kinds of weather, at all times of the year, engaged in healthy pursuits. The explosive popularity of the "Sport Utility Vehicle", or SUV means that these vehicles are living up to their name, and are being pressed into use as the means to move the equipment. Even the "non-SUV", the family sedan or hatchback, has been configured in some way to be able to carry what's needed to support the sporting activity of choice.

    So Far So Good
    I've only had the rack for a few weeks and haven't had a real chance to put it to use but if the attention to the shipping packaging, instructions, and general feel and appearance of the product is any indication, it will do the its job handily. Definitely made of quality parts and the measurements for assembly were spot on. No misaligned holes etc. Assembly was fairly straightforward and except for placing on the roof for mounting, an easy one person job. I did put it on the roof myself but it would've been easy to slip and scratch the vehicle. I didn't. It would be nice if it had an optional wire/mesh flooring to place over the floor bars to keep smaller items (wood 2x4, pipes etc.) from falling sideways or between the bars but i'm sure I can rig something up myself. Hopefully I can submit an update to this review later on after I have given this rack a good workout but as I have already written, I don't predict any problems. Seems to be a great quality product. Good looking too. Low on the roofline so barely noticeable yet when you do it has a good rugged appeal.
