Solution for Fitting Sportrack Vista XL on Taller Factory Crossbars


Hello, I am trying to install the SportRack SR7018, but the U-Bolts are not long enough. Once you add the metal plates, and factor in the threading setback in the screws they give you, not enough threading is exposed inside the box to be able to screw in the bolts securely. If they were just a half inch - 1 inch longer, it would work. It seems like the U-Bolts are designed for very thin crossbars. Where can I get longer U-Bolts? Thanks.

The replacement hardware kit # SR04952 would fit the SportRack Vista XL cargo box # SR7018. Other customers have used this kit for the same purpose, the bolts are longer to fit OEM crossbars that tend to be taller than aftermarket bars.
