Kuat Grip Extender

The Kuat Grip lets you carry up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards on your vehicle's roof rack. Sliding arms make it great for use with your tall SUV, and large grip handles let you open the arms while wearing your heavy snow gloves. It's quick and easy to install and remove, but with the stylish look and low-profile design you may want to leave it on your vehicle all season long. It also includes locks to secure your gear to the Grip and the Grip to your roof rack.


Extends for Easy Loading and Unloading

Kuat Grip Extender extending over car

The Grip carrier has arms that slide out from the side of your vehicle. This makes it easy to load and unload your boards or skis without having to reach up over your car roof or use the inside of your vehicle as a makeshift ladder.


Kuat Grip Handles

Pull against the tabs on each tray to unlock them and slide them out. When you are done loading or unloading your gear simply slide each arm back into position. An audible click lets you know they're locked.


Large Grip Handles

Kuat Grip Handles

The carrier has oversized handles that are easy to grip even when wearing heavy winter gloves. Simply pull up on the handle to open the cradle and load your gear.


GripLock Rubber Teeth

Kuat Grip Extender GripLock rubber teeth

The teeth on the Grip are made of sturdy yet flexible rubber. They put a tight grip on your gear so you know it's not going slide off the carrier as you drive up the mountain. They are also soft so your gear won't get scratched or scuffed.


Easy Installation

Kuat Grip Flip mounts

The carrier installs quickly and easily with the included Flip mounts. They have rubber-coated stainless steel straps that wrap around your crossbars. Simply run a strap beneath the crossbar and hook it into the bracket on the opposite side of the mount. Use the included Allen key to tighten the straps in place.


Kuat Grip Angle Adjustment

You can adjust the angle of each Grip to accommodate the contour of your vehicle's roof. This allows the Grips to sit level to reduce wind resistance and noise as you drive. Simply loosen the angle adjustment bolts, level each Grip, then tighten the bolt.


Security for Your Skis

Kuat Grip One Key Security

The Grip comes equipped with a complete locking cylinder system. The arms lock to secure your skis to the carrier, and the mounting hardware locks to secure the carrier to your roof rack. All 6 cylinders are keyed alike so you'll only have to keep track of one key for the entire system.

These were installed on a 2020 RAV4 Hybrid. Pros: Sharp looking Clear instructions Relatively quick and straightforward assembly and installation Slide-out is handy on taller vehicles Smooth, sturdy action on all hinges, latches, and slide-out Quick removal after initial assembly and install They take about 30 minutes to assemble out of the box (for a first-time roof rack purchaser). All tools (two hexes and lock keys) are included. I assembled mine at our dinner table, so there isn’t any grease that will get messy. The instructions don’t show that you have to use the keys to unlock the different latches, so heads-up on that. Installation on a new and taller vehicle took a little time so as to get them centered and not scratch the roof. I needed a boost (in height) to be able to tighten down the hex bolts that tightens the straps around the cross-bars. I was using the Toyota cross-bars on my vehicle, and they’re quite a bit smaller in diameter than the preset strap lengths on the Kuats, so it took me about another 30ish minutes to situate the racks and then tighten (with included hex key) the car and lock them down (with the included keys). Following the ski trip, I unlocked the strap latch locks, lifted the racks off, and put them on a shelf. Removal time was about 3 minutes, and the straps are pre-sized for our next trip. I prefer to spend a little more for nicer stuff up front that works well and is sturdy and thoughtfully engineered. These racks do all the things you want them to without any real gotchas. While these are a bit more expensive than other alternatives, these are a worthwhile long-term investment for me. 767536

Ask the Experts about this Kuat Ski and Snowboard Racks

  • Low Profile 6 Ski and Snowboard Carrier for a 2017 Kia Sedona
    Your best option to match the roof rack will be the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier # GRR6B. This is a very sleek and low profile option. In terms of height added, the REX Crossbars are about 3-1/2 inches tall when installed, and the carrier is 4-1/2 inches tall, so you'll be at about 8 inches added to the roof of your vehicle. I would verify your heights post installation just to be safe.

  • Will the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier Fit Over the Kuat Trio Roof Bike Rack
    I do have an option for you but the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier part # GRR6B would not be able to be installed over the Kuat Trio Roof Bike Rack part # RU01. The Kuat Grip does not sit high enough in order to allow for the Kuat Trio to mount underneath. That said, if your crossbars are long enough you can slide the Kuat Trio to the end of the crossbar to allow for room for the Kuat Grip to attach. Otherwise, you would need to remove the Kuat Trio if you don't have space for both...

  • Can Kuat Roof Rack Accessories be Installed on Thule Roof Rack Using T-Slot
    The Kuat roof rack accessories just use clamps but they also sit directly onto the crossbars so you would have the same amount of clearance whether they mounted in the T-Slot of Thule aero-style crossbars or not. For example, the Kuat Trio Roof Bike Rack, which comes in Gunmetal Gray # RU01 and Black and Polished Chrome # TR02, sits directly on the roof rack bars and then utilizes clamps that sit under the crossbars for the installation. The overall height you will be adding to the Thule...

  • Best Ski and Snowboard Carrier To Use With SeaSucker Monkey Bars
    Yes I can Joyce. The best 6 ski rack to use with the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack part # 298-SX6100 is the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Slide Out - 6 Pairs of Skis or 4 Boards part # GRR6B because it has the best grip on the bars. The Sea Sucker bars are smoother compared to other roof rack bars and some of the ski carriers can move around on the bars. The Kuat clamps have a rougher mounting surface so they make a tighter connection with the bar. I have attached a video for...

  • Yakima FatCat Ski/Snowboard Carrier Moving on SeaSucker Monkey Bar Roof Rack System
    Thank you for all of the information! I've heard of this kind of situation regarding the SeaSucker Monkey Bars # 298-SX6000 before and although there are other round bars out there, the Monkey Bars tend to allow a little more movement because they don't have a rough finish. This allows ski/snowboard carrier like your Yakima FatCat EVO # Y03096 to have more of a loose grip and move a little. A different carrier like the Kuat Grip # GRR6B would seem like a viable solution but in all...

  • How To Carry Two Pairs of Skis and Two Snowboards Together At the Same Time
    In order to carry two pairs of skis and two snowboard together at the same time I recommend using the Thule SnowPack Ski and Snowboard Carrier part # TH7326B which is just simply the larger version of the Thule SnowPack Ski and Snowboard Carrier part # TH7324B that you referenced which would not allow for you to carry two pairs of skis and two snowboard together at the same time unless using two sets. If you take a look at the attached photo on a similar carrier (part # GRR6B), you will...

This ski rack or the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Slide Out - 6 Pairs of Skis or 4 Boards - Black # GRR6B will give you the capability you are seeking as well as the slide out feature.

  • Thule Wingbar Evo Roof Rack Compatibility on 2013 Subaru Outback with Factory Side Rails
    For your 2013 Subaru Outback with factory side rails, the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 47" Long # TH711200 and Evo Raised Rail Feet # TH710401 will be compatible. This will give you a really nice system and I recommend securing it to your vehicle using the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders - Qty 4 # TH450400.

  • Ski and Snowboard Carrier That Will Fit Wide Crossbars
    There are some options for ski and snowboard carriers that fit around wide crossbars, but there is not a way to fit the Thule SnowPack # TH7326 to wide crossbars as there isn't mounting hardware with a longer strap. If your current carrier won't fit the best option is another carrier, and a great one with a similar easy-to-use mounting system is the Kuat Grip. The Grip fits around crossbars up to 4-1/4" wide (I strongly recommend measuring your crossbars to ensure they fit this width),...
