Review from a similar Kuat Mini Skinny in Roof Basket


Very nice cargo basket. The extension kit really makes a difference. It mounted nicely on Subaru factory supply cross bars. Looks great on my Outback. The customer service at etrailer.com is exceptional. These people take pride in what they do. Keep up the good work!! 562020

Do you have a question about this Roof Basket?


  • Cargo Net for Kuat Mini Skinny Cargo Basket # MSR1B
  • For the Kuat Mini Skinny, # MSR1B, SportRack cargo net # SR0035 is a great choice. I for one think it is the best option for a basket this size.
    view full answer...

  • Fitting SportRack Cargo Net on the Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Top Cargo Basket
  • The hooks on the SportRack cargo net, part # SR0035, definitely will not fit over the large outside bars of the Kuat Mini Skinny, part # MSR1B. Instead just hook it to the smaller bars that run across the basket and it'll fit just fine.

  • Crossbar Spread on the Kuat MiniSkinny and MiniSkinny Extended Rooftop Baskets
  • The Kuat MiniSkinny, part # MSR1B and the MiniSkinny Extended, part # MSR1B-EXB have different maximum crossbar spreads. The MiniSkinny has a maximum crossbar spread of 35-7/8 inches, and the MiniSkinny Extended has a maximum crossbar spread of 49-7/8 inches. Because we use a standard vehicle for most of our installed photos (as we did in this case) the crossbar spread doesn't actually change because the vehicle's crossbar spread is in the same spot. I've included a photo of both...

  • Locking Roof Mount Cargo Basket that Can Also Hold a Bike Rack
  • The RockyMounts cargo basket # RKY1054 does not have a locking feature so you would have to use a cable lock such as # CAB-10 to lock it and any cargo to the rest of the roof rack on your 2009 Jeep Patriot. This basket does not have a way to attach a bike rack to it but I do have a basket that will work for you; the Kuat Mini Skinny # MSR1B. I have linked a video review for you.

  • Adapting the Kuat Mini Skinny's Bike Block to a non-9mm Fork
  • I contacted Kuat directly, and the Kuat MiniSkinny, part # MSR1B and they let me know that there are several manufacturers that can replace the block that comes with the Kuat Mini Skinny. You can use any fork adapter with between 3.75 and 4.5 inch span between its arches to adapt another fork size to the basket. Because axle types vary between bike companies and setups, let me know what kind you have and I can recommend a correct fit for your bike's axle.

  • Best Weatherproof Cargo Bag for Kuat Skinny Roof Cargo Basket
  • The best cargo bag for the Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo Basket and Bike Carrier # MSR1B is the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB200 because it is a waterproof bag that will fit nicely in the Kuat basket. The inside (usable cargo space) of the Mini Skinny measures 52" long x 20-1/4" wide x 5-1/4" deep while the Rhino-Rack Cargo Bag is 55" long x 19-1/2" wide x 11-1/2" tall. Since the bag is a few inches longer it will hang over the front of the basket where the fairing is ever so slightly,...

  • Roof Rack Ski Carrier for Use with Kuat Mini Skinny Cargo Basket MSR1B
  • The Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo baskets # MSR1B and # MSR1B-EXB (which includes the 14-inch extension piece # MSEXB) are designed to transport bikes as well as normal cargo. These baskets are not designed expressly for use with skis. But depending on the type and length of your skis it could be possible to secure them so that they are safe for transport. You could invert the skis so that their bindings are within the basket and then use tie-down straps like # 34414 to hold them in place. Although...

  • Could Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo Basket Fit Subaru Factory Aero Crossbars
  • The Kuat Skinny Cargo Basket part # MSR1B that you referenced is a direct fit for the factory crossbars of your Subaru as this basket is very flexible with what it can fit. The bars would have to be less than 4-1/2 inches wide and 1-3/4 inches tall and be spaced between 14-5/8 and 35-7/8 inches apart. It also comes with everything you'd need to attach a bike with a 9 mm quick release style skewer. Check out the review video I attached for more info on this carrier as well.
