Thanks for the great service. The order arrived at my doorstep yesterday afternoon. Thank you for making sure the order was complete. I installed the hitch and wire kit last night with no problems. The instructions were perfect. Bruce

SportRack Bike Racks SportRack Cargo Carriers

SportRack


SportRack was originally founded in Canada as a manufacturer of ski racks for the automotive industry. They eventually entered the world of bike racks using the same motto as they did when creating ski racks: easy-on, easy-off. SportRack racks are simple to use and versatile (most can be used on 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch hitches).

  • Offers bike racks in hitch and spare tire mounted
  • Special lock created just for SportRack racks with built-in anti-rattle
  • Racks with locking knobs eliminate need for cable lock to prevent theft when bikes are on rack

Expert Answers about SportRack

  • Replacement Locks and Latch for a Karrite Explorer Cargo Box
  • The Sportrack Explorer and the Karrite Explorer are the same cargo box, so the Replacement Locks and Keys, # SR03807 and the Replacement Latch, # 03347, will fit on your cargo box. The Replacement Locks and Keys set includes two locks and two keys. The Replacement Latch contains one latch. We also carry replacement mounting hardware as part # SR05493. All of these items are available together as a kit with part # SR05587.

  • Replacement Latch, Locks, and Keys for a Karrite Voyager Cargo Box
  • For the old Karrite Voyager cargo box you would use replacement latch # 03347. The replacement locks and keys, # SR03807, should also be the correct fit for the box. For the hinges, replacement parts are not available. If they are not moving freely then you may need to remove the hinges, inspect them for damage or to see if they are bent, give them a good cleaning, dry them completely, then use a house hold lubricant to assist in movement. Cargo box lids can kind of stick a bit even...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation For Jayco Popup Camper
  • We have a couple of racks that may work for the top of your Jayco popup camper. I recommend the SportRack Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack, part # SR1020. This features telescoping crossbars that can be adjusted to lengths of 80, 83, or 86 inches. This rack has a weight capacity of 200 lbs. This will not fit trailer roofs with rounded or curved edges. Another roof rack you may want to check out is the Swagman Roamer LT Roof Rack, part # S80510. This system is not designed to be used with plastic...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Use Behind a Travel Trailer
  • Only certain bike racks can be used on the back of a travel trailer and I have included a link to them for you. The SportRack spare tire bike rack, # SR2813, is not rated for use behind a trailer. What I recommend is installing a trailer hitch on the trailer using # 13703. It fits box frames, C-Channel, and I-Beam frames. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. With this hitch installed you would need to use a stabilization strap, # 18050, with a bike rack....

  • Replacement Key for Karrite Explorer Cargo Box
  • If you can locate the key number on your existing locks (see photo), we might be able to obtain replacement keys. If the key number shown on your lock begins with the letter N, you can type THKEYNxxxx (with the x's representing the actual key number) into the search box on the home page of our website. If the key you are needing does not show up on the search, please reply with the number of the key you are needing. If it is available, I will have it added to the website for you.

  • Roof Rack Options for a Pop Up Tent Trailer
  • You are correct, the Sportrack Tent Trailer Roof Rack, # SR1020, will not work if the trailer roof has rounded edges. What you need is a system that comes with tracks that mount to the top, flat part of the roof. Take a look at the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System, # Y01-120. The tracks with this system are 63 inches long. You also get 4 feet and 2 load bars. Make sure to check the trailer owners manual or with the trailer manufacturer to make sure that the trailer can be fitted with a roof...

  • Replacement Cradles for a Bell Bike Carrier
  • To determine if any of the cradles we have fit your Bell bike rack you will need to measure the diameter of the arms the cradles slide onto. A 1 inch diameter or 1-1/4 inch diameter is fairly common. If the carrier has a 1 inch diameter then you could potentially use # HR740-P or # 853-7887. For a 1-1/4 inch diameter you could potentially use # 05002900000, # 852-3005-002, or # HR750-P. None of these cradles have been tested on a Bell bike rack but if the arm diameter is a match then...

  • Replacement Key for a Sears X-Cargo Box and All Replacement Parts Available
  • We have replacement keys for your Sears X Cargo 20 series cargo carrier. In order to get the correct one you will need to know the key number of your current setup. If you do not have a key to get the part number off of, the lock on the cargo box should have a number engraved in it that you can use for the key number. Once you have the key number type into our search box the letters, THKEYN, followed by the 4 digits of your key number and the correct key will come up for you. For...

  • How Can I Tow a Camper and Use a Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Together at the Same Time
  • If your hitch is a 2 inch hitch, the best option would be a dual-purpose ball mount, like Curt part # D210, that would provide a ball mount for the trailer coupler ball as well as a secondary tube for a 2 inch bike rack. With this, you should be able to use the SportRack 3 Bike Rack # SR2403 that you were looking at, or any other 2 inch hitch mounted bike rack. You must take extra caution though and keep a careful eye on the tongue weight of the trailer and the combined weight of the...

  • Does Sportrack Ski/Snowboard Rack SR6466 Fit Round Crossbars
  • The SportRack snowboard rack part # SR6466 is a fit for round bars. When there is a ski or snowboard in the rack the bar shape would not be an issue at all. When the rack is unloaded the rack would be somewhat likely to spin downward but that actually can be a good thing as you can position the rack like that to help with air flow.

  • Securing the Bow of a Kayak or Canoe on a Ford Edge
  • Securing the front tie down for a kayak or canoe under the hood is common. Thule offers the Hood Loops, # TH529, and Quick Loops, # TH530, so you do not have to attach the hook directly to the edge of the hood. I would strongly recommend using these products. You can also use them for your rear hatch if you do not have a strong attachment point for the stern tie down. I have attached a demonstration video for you to check out.

  • Recommendation For a Latch for a Sears X-Cargo Carrier # 7271
  • If your Sears Model # 7271 X-Cargo Carrier is actually a # 3007271 carrier then this Replacement Latch for SportRack Explorer Cargo Box, item # 03347, will be the correct part. If you have a different box part number let me know and I will be glad to find the right parts for you.

  • Roof Rack and Wind Fairing for a 2012 Ford Focus
  • I might have solution for you, but we do not carry any fairings that will fit the Sportrack square bars like the part # SR1010 that you referenced. You would need to get a Rhino Rack roof rack that consists of the following parts: Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack with Euro Square Crossbars # DS126B Custom DK Clamps and Pads # DK307 Then you could get a fairing like the Rhino Rack Fairing part # RRRF2.

  • Spare Tire Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Toyota RAV4
  • If the backup camera on your 2011 Toyota RAV4 is mounted on the bumper and is not mounted on the spare tire or spare tire carrier, then you can use the Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Carrier, # TH963PRO. I have included a link to the installation details for you to view. Please note that near the end of the document there is a fit guide and it has some footnotes that pertain to your vehicle. The Sport Rack 3 Bike carrier # SR2813 is not compatible with the 2006 - 2014 Toyota RAV4.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for a 5th Wheel Trailer Roof
  • I am going to assume that the roof of your 5th wheel trailer does not have any type of roof rack on it. In that case you would need to either add one or use one of the carriers designed for a naked roof. The easiest way to go would be a carrier designed for a naked roof. The SportRack Standard Block Island, # SR5525, is a kit that will fit on a naked roof. With this kit, you would place the blocks on the roof, place the kayak on the blocks, and then the whole thing is held in place with...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations to Carry 2 Beach Cruisers on a 2011 Toyota Camry
  • We do have a few options that will allow you to carry your beach cruisers with your 2011 Toyota Camry. Since beach cruisers are usually heavier than other adult bikes, I would recommend using a hitch mounted bike rack like the SportRack Platform-Style Bike Rack, # SR2901. Using a hitch mounted bike rack is the safest way to carry bikes because the bikes and the bike rack will not contact your vehicle. The platform-style rack also makes it easy to load and unload heavy bikes. This bike rack...

  • Availability of Replacement Keys and Locks for SportRack Explorer Cargo Box
  • The SportRack replacement Locks you referenced, part # SR03807 are compatible with the SportRack Explorer Cargo Box. Without having the keys, the only way to open the box without damaging anything would be to have a locksmith pick it for you. Once the box is opened, the locks can easily be removed by removing the retaining nut from the barrel on the rear of the lock. The retaining nut would be slipped over the locking cam, which would then allow the lock to be pulled out of its mounting...

  • Fairing Recommendation for SportRack Roof Racks
  • The Rhino Rack Fairing part # RRRF3 is a universal fairing that could be used on the Sportrack roof rack part # SR1002 that you referenced. This is a 44 inch fairing that should work well with the 50 inch bars of the # SR1002.

  • Must the Bow and Stern Tie Down Ropes be Used When Carrying a Kayak on a Subaru Outback
  • The J-Stacker Kayak Carrier, # SR5511, is one of our most popular kayak carriers and is designed to work on Thule square bars, round bars and most factor crossbars. This kayak carrier would be my recommendation for your Subaru Outback. It is required to tie down the bow and stern when carrying a kayak on top of a vehicle. I spoke with my contact at SportRack and found out that the ropes are made of a soft polypropylene material that should not damage the paint on your vehicle. These...

  • Availability of Replacement Latch for Old Sears X Cargo Box
  • Thule tells me that the latch you referenced is an acceptable replacement for newer models of the X Cargo. We have other customers who have used the # 03347 latch as a replacement on their X Cargo boxes (see photo), and it has worked just fine. Since your box is a little older, and appears to have used the metal latches, you might need to relocate the mounting holes for the latch, but other than that, the latch should work perfectly for you.

  • Crossbar Spread for the SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack on a 2013 Nissan Juke
  • To install the SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack, # SR1010, on your 2013 Nissan Juke, you will want to start at the gap between your front door and back door (see photo). From there, measure 10 inches toward the front of your vehicle. This will be the center of your front crossbar. Next, measure from the center of your front crossbar back 26 inches. This will be the center of your rear crossbar. When you received the roof rack, you may have noticed numbers on the sides of the crossbars...

  • Roof Rack for a Palomino Pop-Up Truck Camper to Carry a Canoe
  • I think I have a great solution for you. You can use the Thule artificial rain gutters, # TH542, a set of Raingutter towers, # TH387, and 2 of bar # THLB96, which is 96 inches wide. And you will probably want some end caps, # THEC1, to keep water out of the bars. The bars can be trimmed down for the appropriate length. For a canoe carrier that fits the bars you can use # TH819.

  • Options for Carrying 2 Kayaks on a 2012 Volkwagen Jetta without a Roof Rack
  • I have a solution for you, however, there are a few things we want to look at before we can determine exactly what you need to carry both of your kayaks. The first step to take before carrying any kayaks or cargo on the roof of your 2012 Volkswagen Jetta is to find the weight capacity of the roof. A Volkswagen dealer may be able to provide this information since your vehicle did not come with a factory roof rack. Exceeding the weight capacity of your roof could damage the vehicles roof. The...

  • Hardware to Attach Thule Summit Cargo Box to Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack Cross Bars
  • Your Thule Summit Cargo Box used original hardware that was not compatible with their AeroBlade load bars; those bars did not actually exist back when the now-discontinued Summit was in their product line. I checked with my contact at Thule for your best option and that will be to use the kit # SR04952 which is similar to the kit you referenced only it uses straight carriage bolts rather than u-bolts. You may need to drill new holes in the bottom of the box to accept the hardware...

  • Width of U-Bolt in the SportRack Mounting Hardware # SR05493
  • The SportRack Mounting Hardware, part # SR05493, is designed for SportRack Aero Cargo Carriers. The U-bolts are designed for crossbars up to 4 inches in diameter, so the distance between the U-bolts is 4 inches. I have included a picture that shows the measurements. I do not carry the Karrite brand of cargo boxes, so you would have to determine if the mounting hardware would fit your roof top cargo carrier. You will need to measure on your Karrite Voyager to be able to tell if the...

  • Correct Replacement Mounting Hardware for SportRack Explorer Cargo Box # SR7087
  • Yes, the replacement cargo box mounting hardware kit you ordered, part # SR05493, is the correct kit for the Explorer Series cargo box. My contact at SportRack confirmed this also. The key to whether these will fit your Jeep Patriot crossbars is the crossbar width. The u-bolts included in this kit are 4-inches wide. As long as your crossbars are not wider than 4-inches you should have no issue fitting the hardware to them. It may be necessary, as you noted, to drill new holes in...

  • Will Thule Roof Rack Accessories Fit SportRack Roof Rack On 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
  • The SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack, part # SR1010, you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2006 Volkswagen Jetta. This system is designed for vehicles with no existing rails or crossbars. The crossbars measure 3/4 inch by 3/4 inch on this roof rack system. This system comes with locks that secure the rack to your car's roof, and includes 2 keys. I have attached an installation video for this roof rack. Square crossbars on the Thule roof rack systems measure 1-1/4 inches wide by 7/8...
