Today, we're working with a 2012 Toyota Highlander and we're going to be test fitting the RockyMounts TieRod Roof Mounted Bike Carrier, part number RKY1014. To mount our carrier up on top of our roof rack, we'll simply place it on top of our load bars. We'll fit the rubber coated steel straps at the front of the carrier around our front load bar. We'll fit them back into the head of the carrier and use an Allen key to tighten them down. Once we have those straps tightened down, we can reinstall our front cover. We'll also make sure that our skewer is open in preparation for loading a bike.
Today, we have a 2012 Toyota Highlander and we're going to be test fitting the RockyMounts Euro PitchFork Roof Mounted Bike Carrier, part number RKY1103. The Euro PitchFork is designed to work with roof racks that have a slot or channel up in the top of the crossbars. So to install this carrier to our roof rack, we'll first need to remove the rubber stripping on the front crossbar. It can be either be left out or to keep wind noise down. It can be cut to fit around our carrier. We'll slide the head of the carrier over the top bar, making sure that our block goes into the channel.
