Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier

Whether you are hauling 4 pairs of skis, 2 snowboards, or a family-size load of fishing poles, this carrier ensures that you will arrive at your destination with all your gear intact - and you'll do it without breaking the bank.

Locking Carrier

The Rhino-Rack ski and fishing rod carrier comes with a lock on each unit, offering you peace of mind when you are hanging at the lodge after a long day on the slopes or out on the lake in your boat.

Large Push Button

The carrier operates with a large push button on the side of the unit. This design allows for easy loading and unloading of skis, a snowboard, or fishing rods, even if you're wearing fingerless mittens or big, bulky winter gloves.

Universal Mounting Hardware

The ski and fishing rod carrier mounts in the top channel of your Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero or Heavy-Duty crossbars with T-bolts. It also comes with universal clamp-on mounting hardware that lets you use the carrier on round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars right out of the box.

A riser kit (S550 - sold separately) is available to accommodate your skis or snowboards with tall bindings. The risers mount to the spacer nuts on the bottom of your rack and attach to your crossbars with a special fit kit (WR09 - sold separately). These kits add 1-3/8 inches of additional clearance between the bottom of the carrier and your vehicle's roof. If you have Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty crossbars, you will need to use fit kit WR02 instead of WR09.

Soft Molding

This carrier protects your gear with soft rubber molding inside the hinged arms of the carrier. The molding gently cradles your skis, snowboard, or fishing rods and won't damage paint or cause abrasions.

In what universe can you fit 2 snowboards in this thing?! What a waste of money, but the bigger one if you actually need to carry more than one snowboard!

You are right in that it really depends on the width of your snowboards if it will carry two. I found that a standard snowboard is approximately 9.84 inches wide and that this carrier has an internal length of 19.68 inches which would make for a very tight fit, if at all. So, if you have standard or wider boards, I recommend moving to a 4-board carrier like part # RR576.


The Rhino Rack was easy to put up on a 2018 Subaru Outback. Took me about 10 minutes. The only issue is that the rack bottom bracket piece is is convex with an acute angle which makes it not fit perfectly on the Subaru crossbar that has a flat bottom.
Loaded 2 pairs of skis and poles and the rack kept them securely fastened during transport on the highway. There was some noise from the rack during highway driving but it was minimal.



Very good. Have hauled skis on it several times. Very easy to take down and put up for each season.


This rack would be great, but it won't lock. The key won't turn on either of the units. There's a slot underneath where I can see what's going on with a flashlight and it's clear there's not enough clearance for the key to turn, so it's useless. It's either defective or a poor design.

I have reached out to Rhino Rack. They really would like to see some pictures of what you are experiencing in order to further assist. Can you please provide some pictures?

Alex K.


It's not easily photographed. The key will not turn when the rack is latched shut, so it won't lock. I'm going to put it on my car to see if screwing it into place makes any difference and I can try them. But I'm assuming not, at which point I will be seeking product support and possibly returning.

I understand that this is difficult to get the photos, it sounds to me like a defect. I will have our customer service reach out to you and get this resolved right away.


Excellent product at an excellent price. I purchased the Rhino Rack because it has flexible mounting attachments that allow me to install and remove the rack when necessary. It's a great looking product that fits perfectly into my Jeep's modular roof rack system, and it does a great job of securing whatever it holds.


I have had a Rhino Rack on my Ford Explorer for a year and travel many miles as a ski racing official. The installation was quick and simple and durability has been impressive. I would definitely recommend these racks.


Easy to install on the Thule Aero bars, stays solid on the rack and no wind noise when driving.


Really solid product, very happy with them. I mainly use them fir carrying fishing poles and they have never failed, easy to take on and off


Works great. Cost much less than the ones from Thule and Yakima, but I have no complaints. I like the unflashy, all black design. (The stickers are easy to remove) I kinda wish a bought a bigger one so I could fit all the family’s poles too.


Great experience. Rack and bars were as described. It fits great on my Corolla and the instructions were very easy to follow. Super easy to use and havechad zero issues with it since I installed. I love how much more room I have in my car when I go up to ski with them in the rack instead of the trunk with the backseat folded down. Highly recommend!


Very easy to install on Thule rack.


These were easy to install on the Thule roof racks that I bought. I was able to slide them into the channel rather than use the clamps.


Has worked great with Malone cross bars. Used T-bolts since the clamps make it ride kind of high in my opinion. Just slid T-bolts above the gasket material in rail. I make sure to always have them locked so I have to unlock them to put skis on, thus remember to always lock skis on. Been a good system. 40 days of skiing so far between last season and this season. Been solid.


Great racks, got for snowboards. Super easy to slide into my Thule Evo crossbars. Built in lock in each one is a nice feature. Come well packaged with pretty fast delivery.


Customer support was great. After reading the instructions and watching the video on how to install the Rhino Rack installation went well. The ski rack has one draw back, if you leave car out over night with skis locked in the ski rack, every thing can be easily stolen. All you need is an Allen wrench to remove the ski rack with the skis. The roof rack has locking covers the prevent theft of the roof rack. The ski rack can be easily removed from the roof rack.


Seem like a good product for the price. Just unsure of all the plastic. Will see after a year. Not liking the plastic on plastic clam shell mount

Has been a good product. Easy to remove while not in use for winter. Keep the locks lubricated. Very pleased overall.


The install was easy and everything seems well constructed. But I have 2 problems with the product.

1. There is an extremely annoying whistling sound when driving. Now I have to buy a ferry to eliminate this noise

2. I asked if the rack and cross bars can be locked when I bought the product. Actually the rack is not secured at all. It could be easily removed with a cordless drill in about a minute.


Easy installation,look great


Nice ski/snowboard rack for the money,
to install,
Was able to hold 1 snowboard and 4 ski's (kids)

I would not consider it 5 stars as its missing a few considerations for something you will be using in the cold (which IMO should be as easy to use as possible):
* locks are a bit finicky, in fact one of the two racks refused to lock when any pressure was on the top bar (meaning anytime it has skis or boards in). I actually had to have to the top arm up, insert the key and slightly turn it, then close the arm in order to be able to lock it.
* the latch mechanism must be perfectly aligned to close and that is difficult to do in the cold with gloves on if you are not directly in front of each component. So if your car is like mine you have to close one latch (which requires standing on the inside of the vehicle with the door open to reach it), then get down open the rear door and repeat. If the mechanism was designed with some sort of self aligning guide the extra steps would not be necessary as you could reach over and close the second one without moving.


I am always pleasantly surprised by the service from etrailer. I have purchased quite a few items from the site over the past couple years. everything from a cargo box key to an entire roof rail mounting system. The site is easy to use with an incredible selection of items. Shipping is always much faster than I expect, and the products are always top notch. These Rhino Rack ski carriers were no exception. High quality, easy to install and arrived at my door before I knew it. This will work perfectly in addition to my cargo box to get the skis out and make room for boot, poles, etc. Thank you etrailer!


Great design, easy to install and use. Paired with rhino tack folding kayak rack they both fit nicely together on the racks.

Unfortunately strap did not come with my order but when I contacted etrailer they made sure the straps were sent out right away.

Great customer service


Great product that integrates directly with the roof rack set that came with my Audi Q5. Installed in literally minutes with only the Allen wrench that was provided. I chose to mount it without the adapter brackets that wrap around the roof racks and use the tee bolts mounting the ski carrier directly into the racks. Price was 1/3 the OEM racks. They work great and hold 4 pairs of skis as advertised. . Easy in and out with the skis too! Only other comment is check your parts received vs. parts list for completeness. I highly recommend these. Great product, great value.


Just received my snow ski/fishing rod carrier today (Saturday). Quick shipping and service from etrailer and packaging was great. I had one problem with the carrier right from the start. Each one of the holders use what appears to be a different keys to lock them, which is required to secure your items. Only one of my pair had keys and they were numbered 093 (keys and lock). The other carrier did not have a set of keys and it was numbered 125 on the lock. The 093 will not work in the 125. I called etrailer and they took my complaint and will contact the manufator on Monday since they are closed on the weekend. Customer service believes that Rhino just didn't package the keys for the one and probably will ship me the keys. Cannot use them until I get the key and I would think Rhino would have the same key for both or pairs, maybe they put the wrong pair in the box. Besides the key issue the racks look good and fit on my SG60 Rhino Roof rack for my 2017, 2 door hard top Jeep JK fine. Held my fishing rods (7 foot one piece) which are hard to get inside of the 2 door and can open the rear hatch without contacting the rod tips. I placed the reels on the front and tips facing back, reels fit in between the two carriers. Once I get the keys I will try them out on the road to see how they hold. They do sit high so be aware of clearance, but I can drive in my garage with them on. If I get the key and they work on the road I would probably give them a 5 star, I do not keep the roof rack on all the time just when I have to transport my rods for fishing.


The rack is too difficult to close when skis are put on it. Even with only one pair, it is hard to line up the ends and close it. The hinge itself is too flimsy and doesn't self align with the locking side. Therefore, it takes 2 people to close if you have more than 1 pair of skis: One person to line up the lock and one to pull down the bar.


I purchased the Rhino Rack 2500 system for a 2019 Honda CRV. Free shipping and arrived quickly. Installation was not too challenging and I did it alone. Rack is handsome and thus far quiet. Couldn’t be more pleased with the rack and the purchase.


So happy I purchased the Rhino Ski rack! Freed up space in the car which made for more comfortable traveling. Easy to install and convenient to use.
