  • SeaSucker Vacuum Cup Mounting Capacity, Function, and Fit
  • The SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Vacuum Cup Mount - Folding - 48" Long # 298-SX6100 does simply use the vacuum cups as the sole securing factor.

The strength is really incredible...I've attached a video to assist. For increased security and theft deterring, they recommend the window mounted cable anchor...

  • Dual Kayak Carrier for a 2015 Ford F-150 FX4 SuperCrew with Tonneau Cover
  • In order to carry two kayaks on your 2015 Ford F-150 you can do so on the roof with a roof rack or over the bed with a ladder rack.

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Highlander
  • I recommend the Rhino Rack roof rack for your 2019 Toyota Highlander because the rack gives you aero shaped bars which will be very quiet, the racks are easy to install and well made, and because most roof racks that are nice as this cost quite a bit more. Now if you have the flush mounted rails on your roof that run front to back you'd want the part numbers # RRVA137S-2, # RRRCL4, and # RRRCP31-BK. Or, if you have a totally naked roof you'd want the part numbers # RRVA126S-2, # RRRCH4,...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Subaru Impreza With Factory Rails and Sunroof
  • Both the Thule and Yakima roof racks you mentioned will give you the clean look and quiet ride you are seeking on with your 2017 Subaru Impreza with raised side rails, but unfortunately there is not going to be a way for you to vent the sunroof while using a roof rack because they will interfere with one another. If you take a look at the accompanying photo of the Yakima RailBar on a '17 Impreza (though it is one without a sunroof) you can see how the roof rack will look and why a rack...

  • Solution for Wind Noise with the Malone Roof Rack part # MPG201
  • Roof racks can add some wind noise. Luckily there is a solution for that. If you install a wind fairing you'll direct the air over the bars and the noise will go away. For a fairing to use with the Malone roof rack part # MPG201 the part # Y05017 would be what you need. You can also try moving the bars further back on your rack to see if that helps too.

  • The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack 58" # MPG216 or the 50 inch # MPG215 are aero style roof racks that will fit your 2019 Subaru Forester. I would lean toward the longer option, but recommend you check the width of your canoe to determine your need. You can alternatively use the steel square bar # MPG201 or # MPG202 for a more economical option but I recommend upgrading for the minor price difference to reduce wind noise and give you the top channel mount for compatible accessories.

We were able to easily fit the Evo feet on a 2019 Subaru Ascent just like yours so we know it will work well and it's the newest version of the Thule roof rack components so we recommend it the highest.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2 Kayaks on 2019 Mazda CX-5 with Side Rails

The first is that aftermarket bars will give you more crossbar space to work with on your roof to better accommodate your 2 kayaks (and possibly more). The factory bars for your CX-5 likely feature a flush design where the bars don't actually extend past the side rails. This allows for a sleek appearance but reduces the amount of mounting space you have for your items. Aftermarket bars will...

If you are wanting the absolute max spread capabilities the Rola wins in that regard. That said the Rola bars tend to flex more than the other ones do so if rigidity is a priority the Rola loses in that category. The most rigid bar is going to be the...

  • Best Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Honda Pilot with Flush Roof Rails
  • The best roof rack I would recommend for your 2019 Honda Pilot with flush mounted roof rails is the Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack part # TH7603-TH7604 and # THKIT3132. This will give you a roof rack that has crossbars that mount flush to the feet of the rack for a flush, OEM look that will give you minimal wind noise unlike other roof racks.

  • Why is There a Crossbar Spread Difference Between Rhino-Rack, Thule, and Yakima Brands
  • The crossbar spread difference that you are seeing between different brands of roof rack systems has to do with the way that the racks are built. Each manufacturer tested their specific roof rack on a 2013 Toyota Prius and based the placement of the crossbars off of the data that they gathered. The specific spots are the best spots for weight capacity and performance. All manufacturers have great roof rack systems and I would have no hesitation recommending any of them. I do recommend...

  • How to Use the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack on the Roof of a Truck Bed Topper

  • How To Carry a Kayak and Canoe on a 2019 Ram 1500 While Towing
  • In order to carry a canoe and or kayak on your 2019 Ram 1500 I recommend placing them on a roof rack with a roof mounted carrier as you don't really have any other options when towing a trailer. For a roof rack, I recommend the Yakima CoreBar Crossbar System which is composed of part # Y00423, part # Y00146, and part # Y06135. This system has aero shaped cross bars for reduced wind noise and a sleek look. In order to secure a canoe and or kayak to the above roof rack, I recommend using...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe with Panoramic Sun Roof
  • For your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe with the glass roof Thule recommends the Wingbar Evo Roof Rack part # TH711200, # TH460R, and # THKIT4093 if you are wanting to open the roof at all. The Aeroblade Edge rack you referenced sits too low for that. You'll probably find that the crossbars make enough noise that you'd want to keep the roof closed though. Square bars would make even more noise which is why the Aero style is better.

  • How does Roof Rack Bar Sizing Work?
  • Roof Rack sizing is a little different than what you'd expect it to be. Each rack's length is measured by the length of the bar from end to end, letting you pick the amount of distance the bar goes past the bars on the top of your Jeep. The other measurement, called "Cross Bar Spread" is the recommended distance from the center of one bar to the other bar. This helps you pick the size of the roof rack or cargo bag that you can put on top of the vehicle, as well as if a surfboard...
