Tips for Using a Roof Rack

If you’re planning a road trip and need a little extra cargo capacity, a roof rack can take extra items and free up interior space. With a little care, your roof rack can handle overflow items and give you years of service.
  • Make sure your vehicle can handle the extra weight of the items you carry on your roof rack. Items like a canoe can exceed the weight limit quickly.
  • For longer items, tie them down to the front and back of your car. Crosswinds could potentially get underneath the item and pull it right off the car, rack included.
  • Most racks include an integrated lock to secure your items, so don’t forget to use it.
