Stops the whistling and helps with the wind noise with the Vortex racks, which are great. The racks don't come with enough of these, depending on how many carriers one mounts on them. 317269

#RS299B- Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack for Fixed Mounting Points - Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black Really liked the rack, made well, looks like it will stand-up well. One problem was the lack of actual instructions for this particular install. Had to pick text items out of 2 guides that were included but neither was for this exact install. Wasted quite a bit of time that could have been better spent. Overall the rack seems to have mounted OK, seems tight and is quiet when driven at higher speeds. The next real complaint is the four end covers and locking assembly that secure them to the crossbar ends. After installing these end caps and securing them with the lock, it became apparent that the locked end caps were not actually a security feature since one good pull with your hand from underneath the open bottom edge could rip those end caps, lock included, off the rails in a split second. There is a 3/4" inch gap between the top edge of the rubber foot that sits against the vehicle roof and the bottom edge of the end cap, giving ample space to fit in your four finger and rip those end caps completely off the rails. Once off, the rack can easily be removed with simple tools. At best the locks just give the appearance of a deterrent. Extending the bottom edge of the end caps inward about 3/4" inch might help alleviate the problem by not letting you get your fingers up and under the end caps as easily. Aside from those two minor problems I like the rack and hope to get some good kayaking days in this summer. 185647

Great looks and function. Had to add slot fillers to reduce wind noise. These should be standard equipment. Rear attachment needs to be modified to enclose the FJ opening similar to the front two. Overall great rack and would recommend 380510


Comments

After I purchased and installed the fillets for noise, It has been great! Looks good and very functional. Pulled it off of my FJ getting ready to sell or trade-in and pjNf on the-using on my next vehicle. Highly recommended.

  • Reducing Noise from a Rhino Rack XTray Roof Rack
  • The shape of a roof basket like the XTray, part # RMCB01 can make it very loud when travelling, but there are a few things you can do to help it be a little quieter as you're travelling. The first option is to simply remove the roof basket and store it when not in use. This will save the basket from any unnessary damage, but risks it not being available when you want it, or having the style you want for your vehicle. The next option is to replace your vortex strips, part # RRM626...

  • Replacement Rubber Strips for Roof Rack Crossbars with Channels
  • You'll be able to use almost any replacement strip as they are almost always fit for a 3/8 inch channel. I specifically recommend the Thule Replacement Channel Cover 59 inch, part # 852-5402-005 or the Rhino Rack Vortex 15-3/4, part # RRM626. These are vortex-patterned strips that will fit 3/8 inch channels and replace your existing damaged or cut strips.

  • Rubber Strip to Fit the Channel on the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars
  • The only thing that we have which has been tested to fit in the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Bars, like part # RRVA137B-2, is the Replacement Vortex Strip for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRM626. This strip is 15-3/4 inches long and was created to fit right into the channel on the Vortex bars. This could have happened from the strips possibly getting too much UV exposure. Leaving the crossbars on your vehicle for long periods of time can take its toll on equipment. This could also be...

  • Reducing Noise From Rhino Rack Vortex Series Roof Rack Crossbar Kits
  • Generally, aero bars are as quiet as they can get, but there's a few extra steps you can take to try and reduce the noise from your Rhino Rack SG Roof Rack Kit, part # RRSG59. - If you're experiencing a high pitched whistle that seems to come from near one of the connection points, you may not have a great fit to that particular leg. You can improve performance by repeating the installation of the rack, focusing on alternating tightening down the two legs, doing half of the turns required...

  • Replacement Rubber Inserts for a 2012 Land Rover LR4 Cross Bar
  • Most of the strips we carry are sized to fit 3/8 inch channels. I specifically recommend the Thule Replacement Channel Cover 59 inch, part # 852-5402-005 or the Rhino Rack Vortex 15-3/4, part # RRM626. These are vortex-patterned strips that will fit 3/8 inch channels and replace your existing damaged or cut strips. If you have Yakima bars, part # 8880634 is the specific top in fill rubber for the Yakima bars.

  • Compatibility of RhinoRack J-Style Kayak Carrier with Rhino Rack RSP Roof Bars
  • The RhinoRack J-Style Kayak Carrier, part # S512 is a compatible fit with the Rhino Rack RVP Roof Racks, part # RRRVP27 without any additional parts. The universal mounts will fit up to 3-1/8 x 1-1/4inch crossbars. If you'd like to mount it directly into the C-Channel on the RVP Roof Racks, you'll need the fit kit, part # KC-FK8 to allow it to slip into the rails on top of your vehicle. If you do this, I recommend purchasing a separate set of vortex strips, part # RRM626 to be able...

  • Roof Bike Rack to Fit T-Slot Channel in Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars
  • RockyMounts' JetLine Fork Roof Mounted Bike Carrier # RKY1320 mounts on any round and square crossbars and also has the ability to install in the T-slot track on top of a roof rack crossbar such as the Rhino-Rack Vortex aero-style bars like # RRRS143. We do offer a replacement Vortex Strip # RRM626 for the Vortex rack bars.

  • Troubleshooting Rhino Rack That Whistles
  • If a roof rack is whistling and there is a channel on it that is exposed the solution is adding more of the rubber strip to cover the hole. For that you would want the part # RRM626 which is 15-3/4 inches long but can be cut to size as needed.

  • What are the Measurements for the Replacement Vortex Strip for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars
  • I went out to our demo area and measured replacement strip # RRM626. It is 7/8 inches wide at the top, 1/2 inch wide at the bottom, and 3/16 inches tall overall. I have included a picture showing the dimensions for you.

  • Rhino Rack Vortex Whistle Roof Rack Solution
  • The loud whistle you described normally means that the lower crossbar channel cover isn't in use. If you lost yours we have the part # RRM626 for a replacement that can be cut down to the correct length. If you have the strip still install it to cover up as much of the lower channel as possible and the whistle will go away.

  • Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Feet and Install Kit for a 2010 Toyota Prius
  • It looks like the Rhino-Rack bars for the 2009 Subaru Tribeca are either 49 inches long or 54 inches long and the recommended bar length for the 2010 Toyota Prius is 44 inches. Since the bars you have are longer and not shorter than required you can use them on the Prius using leg kit for Vortex bars # RRRLKVA and custom clamp kit # DK195.
