It does come with the installation putty tape, and the necessary hardware. Now the screw heads are painted to match the color of the hatch, so it gives it a really nice clean overall finished appearance. The hatch door is able to swing open for easy access. Really nice design, snaps in the shut position. Very secure. Then it's got the sliding door right here that allows the cable to pass through with the main hatch door closed. With that closed, it's also going to keep unwanted items out of the stored area when the cable isn't being used.

Husky Liners Floor Mats Review - 2016 Subaru Forester

Today in our 2016 Subaru Forester we're going to be taking a look at the Husky Liners WeatherBeater custom floor liners for the front and rear in black, part number HL99881. What I like most about these floor mats is the way it gives you so much extra coverage over the factory floor mats, so you can have that peace of mind that knowing, in case anything does get on here, you're not going to have to worry about needing to clean your carpet underneath. What I like most about the second row floor mats from this is that it does give us that extra coverage around the edges, but over the center here, it gives us that coverage that we definitely don't get with those factory floor mats. We're not going to have to worry about things getting on this center hump, as if we would when those other mats we're in. Here's the factory floor mats. As you can see, they've got a lot of stuff that collects both on them, but also around them, on the carpet. We'll remove these and install our Husky Liners. Now we can slide our Husky Liner up into place, and these two little posts back here will be able to go through holes that are made into the Husky Liner mats in order to help make sure they stay in place and line up properly. more

Today on our 2016 Subaru Forester, we're going to be taking a look at the Husky Liners WeatherBeater Cargo Liner in black, part number HL49881. What I like most about this cargo liner is the extra coverage it gives us in order to make sure that we don't have to take a bunch of extra time to always clean the carpet in our trunk, but rather we can just take out this cargo liner and clean that instead. You can see that with this Husky Liner it goes all the way into this little cubby here, and it does that on both sides in order to give us superior coverage from the cargo liner that was in here. It's got channels and ridges all across the surface to help control anything that may get spilled or collect on here such as dirt, debris, or any type of liquid. It's going to help control that and make sure it doesn't get too far and risk splashing off to get on the carpeting underneath. As you can see, it's got this nice raised lip that goes all the way around and contours very nicely to the curves and edges of the trunk. That's going to give us really good coverage to make sure that there really isn't anything that escapes that to stain or collect on the carpet underneath. more

Today on our 2016 Honda HRV, we're going to be taking a look at the Yakima Halfback two bike trunk mount rack with adjustable arms, part #Y02636. On this bike rack it's secured to our two arms in 3 locations. We've got the two straps that go across the top here. Then one that is on the down tube of the bike here to serve as an anti-way strap to help prevent it from moving too much and not hit the bike next to it or the vehicle. Let's remove our bike. In order to do that you squeeze on the tabs on the sides of these straps. They're also called zip strips. more

Yakima  Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2016 Honda HR-V

Today on our 2016 Honda HRV we're going to be taking a look at the Yakima full back 2 bike trunk mount rack with adjustable arms, part number Y02634. On this trunk mount bike rack, the bike secured down in 3 locations. It's got 2 straps that go across the top at either arm, and then down on the side where we've got the down tube, it's got one more that serves as an anti-sway strap to make sure that the bike doesn't move too far either way in order to hit the other bike or possibly the vehicle. It also features an integrated cable lock that would attach out here at the end of this arm to that post right there. Let's remove our bike. In order to do that, you simply squeeze on the tabs on either side and remove these straps which are also called "zip strips". Then we can take our bike and set it off to the side. Once we're done, it's a good idea to replace the zip strips so they don't get lost or damaged. Now let's take a couple measurements to see what the total distance is added to the vehicle. Total distance added to the vehicle, you're looking about 29 inches. The arms on this bike rack are adjustable. more

It also features an integrated cable lock so if you want to, you can secure your bikes to your rack and not have to worry about them being stolen. Now let's remove the bike from the rack. We'll set that off to the side. Now one of the nice features is that using this red handle here you can pull the pins out and rotate your arms down, but before we do that let's take a few measurements. First one's going to be total distance added to the vehicle. It's looking right about twenty-two inches. more

We're going to go ahead and remove the bike. In order to do that, you squeeze in on the tabs and remove these straps, also known as zip-strips. You can take your bike and set it off to the side. With the bike out of the way, it's a good idea to replace the strips, just to make sure that they don't get lost or damaged. Now, something that is really nice that this does, is it does allow you to fold down the arms; but before we do that, we're going to take a measurement to see what the total distance added to the vehicle is, with the arms up. more

Curt  Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2016 Honda HR-V

Today on our 2016 Honda HRV we're going to be taking a look at the 20 by 48 CURT cargo carrier, part number C18110. On this cargo carrier it features a steel mesh floor which is going to help keep it clean because that dirt and debris is going to fall through and won't be able to collect as easily on the bottom side of your cargo. Then here around the edge it's got this nice lip that's got some pre-drilled holes in locations all the way around it. That's going to help to make sure that you can tie your cargo down and keep it nice and secure on the carrier. Now let's take some measurements. First will be our ground clearance here at the back of the carrier. At the bottom of that bolt it's right about 14-3/4". more

Kuat  Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, we're going to be test fitting the Kuat NV 2.0 Two-Bike Rack, Part Number NV22G. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The most important feature about this bike rack is the fact that it can tilt away from the vehicle with the bike still attached. To do that, we have this latch here, which is a little bit easier to get to, pull it towards us holding on to the bike rack and letting it come down. Now with it tilted away, we have full access to the rear hatch to get whatever we need with plenty of space on either side to do so. more

The cradles themselves are adjustable along the arms of the rack to help better fit bikes and it grips your bike in three locations. We have two straps up at the top here and one strap off to the side, and that's going to serve as an anti-sway strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth and possibly hitting the bikes in front of it.

Let's go and take a closer look and show off some of the features. Now the first and most important feature of this rack is the fact that it can tilt away from the vehicle with the bike still attached. To do that, there's this great handle up at the front. You pull towards you and let it come down, which is a little bit more convenient than other racks that usually have the latches up towards the front. It can make it a little awkward to lower them out of the way. Let's go ahead and do that. more

Thule  Roof Rack Review - 2008 Lincoln MKX

Today, on our 2008 Lincoln MKX, we're going to be installing the Thule roof rack system, consisting of part numbers THARB53, those are the Thule AeroBlade Load Bars, part number TH480R, those are Thule Rapid Traverse foot packs, and part number THKIT1530, and that's going to be the fit kit or clamp that attaches to your vehicle. We already have the front one installed, and as you can see, it has a nice aerodynamic shape to it, and that's going to cut the wind noise and drag while you're driving. The combined carrying capacity of both bars is going to be about 165 pounds, however, you want to double check with your vehicle's instructions to make sure that it can actually withstand that weight. Since we have the front one installed, let's go ahead and show you how the rear one goes on. We already have it partially assembled on our table here. We have our foot pad, our clamp, and our end cap here, and of course, the foot pack. We'll go ahead and put that on first. more
