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.

Rivian R1T - easy install and great looks. Works fine with the Rivian crossbars. The slide out is a nice feature!

etrailer - great, great customer service! I had issues with delivery and you were there. You answered my emails promptly and was able to resolve it quickly. Amazing!


This is a fantastic rack. Had it all last winter. Not only did it keep our skis secure, it looked great doing it - I got a lot of people asking about it when they saw me using it in the parking lot. The slide out feature is very handy once you get the hang of it.

We did encounter issues with the slide out trays getting stuck with ice several times (I'm in the cold and wet NE) but I was able to work them free. We also had locks freeze up to the point where you couldn't get the key into the bolt to lock/unlock, which was annoying. Kuat support was great in sending new lock bolts when this happened though. I think the locks might need some weatherproofing to account for rain/snow getting in and freezing up the components, then allowing corrosion to set in and seize everything up.

But no regrets! I have this and the Base rack for our bikes in the warmer months, so there's kuat on my vehicle all year round now.


Best purchase ever. I have wanted to get a name-brand ski rack ever since I was in Highschool 30 years ago. I had the option of buying a cheaper one but just didn't trust the quality. I am so glad I made the decision for this one. It is incredible. Best construction, strength, and ease of use I have ever seen.


Amazing quality and functionality. Less than one hour from opening the box to skis on the roof.



These rack are great, I have them on both of my SUVs all winter. The etrailer seevice was excellent as well.


Eventhough we had a damaged packaging problem with missing parts, I will still give etrailer and my sales rep Joseph 5 stars for replacing rack with a new one in a very short amount of time. Things will happen but it is how the company take care of the problems quickly is how I rate them as well. The racks are excellent and although there is a lack of snow now, I know they will be great. Heavy duty racks that lock to the roof rails as well as lock the skis on as well. Can't beat Kuat products. They are made well and work well.


The instructions missed a key part when installing...loosen the universal strap first. Took me forever to figure out why I couldn't get it to snap in once on my crossbars. Otherwise so far I'm happy with it.


The rack showed up at my door and was on the roof in less than 20 minutes. It is a very solid piece of gear. The handles and locking mechanisms are sturdy and robust. The slide out trays are smooth and don’t bind. I have an older Thule ski rack that slides out on another car…it’s been good. The Kuat is much better.


Super solid, like all things Kuat makes, and even a knucklehead like me was able to mount the ski racks in short order. Plus the Pearl White looks killer on my white 4Runner!


Top quality exactly what I was looking for!


By far the most well designed and built ski racket on the market!


Thank you, Matthew (Rep), for your diligence in keeping me posted on my order. I
am grateful that this Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier came on a timely basis.
Although it is a Christmas gift and will not be opened until then, the tracking of this
package and the excellent email correspondence was exceptional. Can't wait to give this gift as all of the products seem to be good quality. I am waiting for two more items to arrive and will comment once their arrival is here. Thank you for keeping me posted each day on my purchases!!!!


These were installed on a 2020 RAV4 Hybrid.

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.


E-trailer is best in class. Items always come shipped securely. I don't purchase anywhere else.


These are really terrific!


Great ski rack system. Rack is very robust, a high quality product.


Good ski rack




Timely shipping, great product.


Came quickly, looks awesome.

  • Slide Out Ski Carrier Compatibility for 2017 Acura RDX with Factory Roof Rack Crossbars
    The Thule SnowPack Extender Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Slide Out - 6 Skis or 4 Boards # TH7325 is a great option that will allow you to carry your 2 boards and 2 sets of skis at the same time. 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.

  • 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),...

  • Recommended 6 Ski and 4 Snowboard Carrier for a Roof Rack
    Yes, the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier item # GRR6G or item # GRR6B will work with your Rivian's Yakima crossbars. These will attach to any crossbar that is up to 4-1/4" wide and to my knowledge Yakima doesn't make one anywhere near that wide. This will be easy to confirm and I recommend doing so. The T-Channel Mount Kit for Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier item # GRDMK is not needed as the rubber-coated stainless steel straps will easily wrap around your Yakima crossbars. Any...

  • 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...

  • Can I Use Accessories to Increase the Height of my Kuat Grip Ski/Snowboard Carrier?
    If you choose to mount some accessories from the T-Channel Mount Kit for Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier # GRDMK, I strongly recommend that the grips that attach to the crossbars are still fully attached to the bars so that it will deter any shifting (or, even worse, the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier # GRR6G falling off the roof). As long as the crossbar attachments remain fully functional for the Kuat Grip, you will be good to go. I confirmed with Kuat that this will not void...

  • Ski and Snowboard Carrier Recommendation for 2 Pairs of Skis and 2 Boards
    You would be able to carry 1 board and 2 skis with the Kuat Switch 4 Ski and Snowboard Carrier # KU94FR, so since you're wanting to carry 2 pairs of skis and 2 boards I recommend checking out the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier # GRR6G instead as it can carry up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 boards. This larger carrier will not only be able to carry both pairs of skis and 2 boards, but it also has the ability to slide out for easier loading of your equipment. I have attached some review...
