The first feature of this we will show you is the most obvious one. It is a nice one piece all enclosed unit to carry all your materials in. As you can see it is all one piece construction with no seams, also there is a drain hole in case something does spring a leak inside. Also what is really nice about this is that this is actually two products in one. You have enclosed carrier and you also have a tray on the bottom that you can use to carry your equipment too that does not quite fit in the enclosed section. We will show you how to take that apart with the two latches at the bottom. If you notice there are a variety of slots all around the perimeter of the tray itself, those are there to put down your tie down hooks. Put them in there and they will catch on the side or vice versa and secure your cargo. One nice feature about this is the built in tail light assemblies in case what you are carrying blocks off the tail lights you have on your vehicle you always have those for back up. Also if you plan to keep your cargo carrier on your vehicle for extended vacation or something like that, some states require you not to have your license plate blocked. This unit has provisions where you can screws to attach a license plate right here and here so your plate would end up mounting about like this. Also on top, there is two dimples here for an additional accessory that you can install that will allow you to have a license plate light. One of the most obvious features also on this rack is the swing away portion of it. This is so you can get into the back of your vehicle if you need to. As you can see this is a full featured carrier, actually two carriers in one. Its size, shape and appearance goes with a lot of small SUVs out there. This part # 59109, the swing away cargo carrier.
