At first when I opened the product, I thought that it might have been too small. My car has only 2-doors, so I was skeptical how it was going to hold. I was also concerned about my antenna location. With the adapter, it really looks good on the car, and really solid as well. It does leak a little when it rains out, but a little rain isn't going to stop me from having fun, and I expected it to leak a little from the mounts in between the door panel. I can't wait to add the kayak carriers onto it. I haven't ordered those parts yet, but will soon. here are a few pics to look at. I recommend it.

Do you have any tips on how to manuever this box frame once the SR1116 is installed? It seems a little cumbersomeThanks for your input!~Jill

What number is the front and rear set to. I have my front 20 and rear 19 like the book says and one side goes off the car.

- SR1116

I bought the roof rack for my Toyota Solara to transport a 50 lb kayak to and from the water. I've used the rack perhaps 50 days so far. It performed as you would hope: no failures. What surprised me was how well it performs on the interstate. I wouldn't recommend taking it over 80 mph, but anything up to that point is incredibly stable. Some cons: the rack is at its most outreached point, so that the caps are all that's holding it in place. My quick, cheap and effective fix was to use those flat rubber bungees from one cap to another. Another lightly irritating part is that the metal rubs up against the top of the window while driving, creating a chirping squeaking noise. Roll the window down to just below this point and you should be able to avoid a lot of road noise as well as the rubbing noise. The initial setup was lengthy, maybe an hour. Since getting it set up right though, taking it off is 5 minutes and putting it on is 10 minutes. Overall review: you get what you pay for. Not the greatest removable roof rack out there, but for the price, you get a pretty good deal.

  • What Roof Top Cargo Bag Will Fit a 2005 Honda Accord Coupe
    I have two solutions for carrying a roof cargo bag on your 2005 Honda Accord Coupe. If you are making a trip of any distance I recommend installing an economical roof rack system such as the SportRack Semi-Custom # SR1002 with the Short-Roof Adapters # SR1116, which enables you to carry a cargo bag without issue. Due to the size of your roof and only having 2 doors, this kit comes with a short roof adapter that enables you to carry cargo securely. By using crossbars, you achieve a more...

  • Fit and Compatibility of SportRack Roof Rack on a 2005 Honda Accord Coupe 2 Door with Sunroof
    Yes, the SportRack # SR1002 and the short roof adapter # SR1116 will work together to mount onto your 2-door coupe with sunroof. This roof rack will support up to 130lbs of weight. You will want to check your owner's manual to make sure that your roof has this capability before loading your SUP on top. A great SUP pad and tie-down for your SportRack roof rack is the Rhino Rack # RRRWP03. This comes with pads that are 21-1/2 inches long. If your SUP is wider than that we offer them...

    The short roof adapter # SR1116 is not needed for the 2011 Hyundai Sonata. When I run the vehicle through our fit guide the SportRack roof rack that comes up is # SR1002 and the adapter is not listed as required or even recommended. We just have a note that states that it may be needed. With this roof rack installed the crossbars will be 26 inches apart on center which is more than enough to not have to use the adapter. But the reason that it is not fitting is actually because you...

  • Will Short-Roof Adapter for SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Racks Allow Maneuverability of Roof Rack
    A roof rack fit is based on the most stable and strongest locations on the roof. The Short-Roof Adapter for SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Racks, # SR1116, which you referenced, will provide some extra support and will allow you to more safely expand the bar spread to 23-3/4". The crossbars, however, will be limited to a spread of 23-3/4" because the adapter is not adjustable. However, the adapter's side rails and set of clamps do allow the rear crossbar to be moved rearward a bit.

    If you look at the photo one of our customers submitted, you'll get a better idea of how the SportRack # SR1003 roof rack and the # SR1116 Short Roof Adapter fit together. Because your vehicle is a coupe and there's not a second set of doors at the rear of the vehicle, without the short roof adapter the crossbars would mount so close together, they couldn't be used for anything. The adapter provides side rails and another set of clamps that allow the rear crossbar to be moved rearward a...

The adapters are only really needed for small 2 and 3-door cars or ones with a very curved roof line.
