Video Transcript for RockyMounts LiftOp Small Ski and Snowboard Carrier Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the RockyMounts LiftOp Smalls Ski and Snowboard Carrier for 3 skis or 2 boards, part number RKY1481. The Lifttop Smalls is the solution for carrying your skis and snowboards. It featured padded cushions on the top and bottom not only to protect your gear from scalps and scratches but to hold it in place while we're on the road. It's going to fit a wide variety of roof rack systems, your round, square, arrow, elliptical and most factory roof rack systems as well. They have a tubular aerodynamic design which is going to help minimize wind noise while we're on the road. It has a large push button lever so we can easily open it even while wearing gloves, it also locks for added security for our gear. It's constructed of a light weight aluminum that's corrosion resistant with a black finish.

Its dimensions are 27 and a half inches long by 5 and a half inches tall and has a lifetime warranty. Now that we learn all the features, let's go ahead and show you how to get it installed. Now there's 2 ways we can mount this through our roof rack system. We can do it the T-slot way or we can do it the clamp method. We're going to show you both.

Let's do the clamp method first. Let's go ahead and grab our ski and snowboard carrier, we'll open it up and when we get out clamps, they're going to come assemble with a bolt and flat washer already installed. We go ahead and take that off and what we're going to do is we're going to run that bolt and flat washer through this whole here then we'll take our clamp and we'll screw that in place. Now we don't want to tighten it down all the way just yet so just loosely install it. We can just repeat that same step on the other side here. Now with both clamps installed let's go ahead over to our crossbar and we'll set it in place.

It doesn't matter which way you have your clamps, just want to set it up to however works best for you. In positioning our carrier we're going to make sure that it's in line and parallel with the other one. You can use a tape measure, you can high it up. I think in this case we're pretty close. Let's go ahead and lift up on the tab here. We're going to swing it to the right and we'll do that same thing for the other tab and that's going to reveal the spot where our clamp comes around and clips in.

Let's go ahead and get those both in position then we can grab our included tool and tighten that down. Now there's no reason to over-tighten this, we'll just get them both nice and snug and then we got it. With that one being secure, let's go ahead and swing our tab back around and let's try the other one. That's pretty good, the same thing here. Put our tab in place. Let's go ahead and open up our carrier and we'll finish tightening down our 2 bolts on the inside. The reason why you want to leave this loose and so could swing all the tab over and tighten up the clamp. With both of those being tighten we could finish tightening the ones on the inside here and then we're all finish. Now for the T-slot method. Let's open up our ski and snowboard carrier, just as the same as we did before only this time we take our bolt with our flat washer and a spacer, put that in place and then put that through the hole. Once we get it through there, we take the square nut and thread that on. We'll also loosely install that. We just repeat that same step on this side. Now let's head up on through the crossbar. We bring the carrier up at this point in time, you can close it up if you want to, whatever is easiest. Let's go ahead and remove that end cap and then slide it on. Now it's important to line up the nuts with this channel here. That was you could easily slide it on and when you do so you want to make sure that's in line and parallel with the other one. That looks pretty good. Let's go ahead and open it up and tighten those down. While we're here, let's go ahead and put that end cap back on. Now as same as before, let's go and open up the carrier and tighten up our bolts. Perfect. Now we're ready to load up some skis and some snowboards. We get out skis and snowboards loaded up, let's go ahead and start by open up our RockyMounts Carrier, I'm going to grab my boards first, slide those on. I'm going to slide them all the way to the other end. That was it gives us plenty of room for more gear. Now for our skis, looks like we have room for one more pair. Perfect. The only thing left to do is to close it up. We grab our keys and we're all set. That's going to complete our look of the RockyMounts LiftOp Small Ski and Snowboard Carrier for 3 skis or 2 boards, part number RKY1481,.

Review from a similar RockyMounts LiftOp in Ski and Snowboard Racks


Perfect. I was familiar with the product as Rocky Mounts is near my house. I bought through etrailer as they had them in stock. Shipping was fast, transaction was efficient. I believe this product is better than the other name brands out there. Rubber is wider, bar mounts are universal and very strong. bar mounts are easily removable if you choose to remove during off season. 239184

Review from a similar RockyMounts LiftOp in Ski and Snowboard Racks


4 pair of skis on any type of rack. I have the aero blade edge cros bar and was looking to carry 4 pair of skis. This rack is great, easy to operate, cushions the skis, and I know their bike racks are good so tried the ski rack. It's a nice feature that it can mount directly to euro tracks in cross bar or with included mounting pylons. It comes with locks and keys and the installation hardware is secured when the rack is closed and locked so only one set of locks is needed - you don't need to lock the mount and the rack, just the rack, which secures the skis and the rack itself. 170449
