Very insecure way to strap down a canoe. The s-hooks pop out of the tube. I could not tighten the straps enough to keep the rack in place. I travel thousands of miles each year with my canoe and I would never rely on this rig to carry my boat. 773566

Great product I would strongly recommend to others also I will buy again.. 772516



- DTA968
by:

Used it to carry a kayak for a three-month trip with the front of the kayak on this bar and the rear tied down to the tailgate. It 'worked' but often came looser and slipped backwards. Straps can damage the rubber window moulding and the tiny z-clamps periously bend and risk loosing the strap when really pulling it tight. We got through the trip with some constant attention, but not a solution we're going to repeat. I didn't expect much as it was a cheap solution. Threw it away afterwards. 734682

The product works just as needed and was received on time with next day shipping. I’m sure the combo hitch package will work for your kayaks or boards. It is easy to set up and take down. I drive really fast on the interstate and back roads and it held up the last three 200 mile trips with my 11’ SUP (stand up paddle board) nose ratchet tied to it. I used the provided strap for the rail/bar. The brand also has a tail gate extender. (Not detailed in picture.) 691407



- DTA968
by:

This is a pretty flimsy product. I bought it for mounting kayaks, but it is not sturdy enough. I would only use this for mounting lightweight and inexpensive items that you are carrying short distances. There is a lot of wobble to the round bar because of it's particular two-piece design (if you have a short width to span on your vehicle, you might not have as much wobble, noise or bend to the bar, but my setup had it extended as far as it would allow). Also, the webbing strap is very thin. I've used other straps of similar thinness and quality that have failed, so I decided not to take the chance with these straps. I'm returning the product but if I were to keep it, I'd use the foam pieces but replace the bar and strap with something much more sturdy. 672431

I purchased the rack with the extend a truck. Unfortunately after 4 uses the strap that holds the roof rack bar became weak at the clamping point and I wasn’t able to secure the rack properly. Is there any other heavy duty straps or replacement straps? I was suprised as this strap seemed very low quality for the application it is used for. 539302

The product is very good very strong I definitely recommend the only thing is there is a warning in the instructions about side airbags which I do have didn't realize that when I bought the product but I will use anyways I will take the risk. 517268

I recently ordered the Turbo Rack. Once the order processed I received an email saying the product wasn't in stock and that one of their associates would check other warehouses to locate one. Next day this product shipped! And it processed over the weekend! These guys are great and I'm happy that they went above and beyond to satisfy a customer. I will keep this in mind when ordering in the future. Much appreciated! 259361

I have not used the product yet, however I have mounted the crossbar and everything looks great. I know I will have no problem with the kayak I plan on carrying. I really appreciate how fast the product got to me. I was told I would not get it until thursday or friday and it came today (Tuesday). I will definitely order from etrailer again and let my friend know about you as well. Thanks again, Marc 228441

Nice product. Maybe a bit pricey for what it is, but it is universal. I am using it on the back boot of my Citroen 2CV and have it set to the minimum length. The foam pad supports are sturdy and soft enough to not scratch the paint. I ordered these and had them at my door within a week. 192879

Product looks good with one exception... one hole punch out left a sharp tag from the hole at the edge. I will break that off with pliers and file to avoid getting cut. Pleased with shipping time. Easy to use. Will look for other products on your site. 114632
