Video Transcript for RockyMounts Ski and Snowboard Racks Review - 2015 Chevrolet Cruze

Today on the 2015 Chevrolet Cruise, we're going to take a look at the Rockymounts small ski-and-snow-board carrier. Part number is RKY1481. I have the first one already on. We're going to show how we install the second one. This fits pretty much all your crossbars, so what we want to do is line it up with the second one, make sure these are turned the right way. What we want to do is slide this across (put this in my pocket, make sure we go the right way), slide that that way, bring up the strap, slide it into that groove. We're going to take out Allen wrench.

Right there, we're going to tighten it down as soon as we get that tightened around our crossbars. Allrighty, that's pretty tight. We're going to go in here. We have an Allen bolt. We need to tighten it here.

Now we're just pretty much going to tighten down the rest of the parts. All right, so that's tight and I need to go ahead and move to the other side. I'm just going to go over here. Slide that out the way. Take that, put it in another groove.

Then we're going to take our Allen wrench, starting to tighten that up. There we go. The good thing about these carriers, they can carry up to two snowboards or up to three pair of skis. We're going to try to do a little bit of both today. When it's nice and tight, slide our lid on there. I'm going to come around to the other side.

Still got Allen bolt, Allen tool in here and tighten up this one here. As soon as I get this nice and tight, we're going to start loading up. Allrighty, okay, we're ready to go. I'm going to open this one up. I'm going to grab one snowboard, slide it all the way over. Get up a pair of skis. Knock them down. You see, I have a key here, so if you wanted to leave your snowboards and skis on, lock it up, there you go. That's going to complete our look at the Rockymounts small ski-and-snow-board carrier. Part number again is RKY1481, on today's 2015 Chevrolet Cruise.

Quick install. Everything needed in box, including Allen wrench. I chose the clamp method, though maybe will switch to t-slot install later. Instructions in box clear and readable. (Videos on website very helpful too.) Very good brand and product. 726376

Review from a similar 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 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
