Review of Rhino Rack Vehicle Fishing Rod Racks RR572

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Rhino Rack Ski and Fishing Rod Carrier. This convenient locking carrier transports two pair of skis or four fishing rods safely and securely on your roof rack. It has a nice push button release over here. It's spring loaded, so the top portion of the unit opens up automatically. It lets you easily open the carrier. The push button design is really nice.

It is a larger push button, so if you have gloves on you can still just reach up here, and you can push that, and open it very, very easily. Internally we have really nice soft rubber molding to ensure excellent grip on your gear without scratching or damaging it.It features a universal mounting system, which enables quick and easy installation on most roof rack configurations. These are the clamps that it comes with. It also comes with the hardware to tighten the clamps together. The clamp on mounting brackets are included.

They're compatible with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. Fit Kit HD-FK1 is sold separately, and is required to use the clamp on brackets with Rhino Rack Heavy Duty Crossbars.Also, the hardware that it uses is T bolt hardware, so you can actually remove these feet and use the T bolts to install in the top channel of your Rhino Rack Vortex Aero and Heavy Duty Crossbars if desired. The built in locks on the unit. Each one has one, so one there, and one right there. The built in locks secure your cargo to the carrier, so it prevents the arms from being able to open.

We're looking at a nice aluminum construction on the main unit, and then some plastic capping.Overall, it's a nice strong durable design that is built with a corrosion resistant design to it. Black in color. Carrying capacity, this can carry two pairs of skis, or four fishing poles, fishing rods. It has the indentions right here for the fishing rods to fit into it. Weight capacity is up to 26 pounds.

External link for each carrier is 15 3/4". Internal is about 9 13/16" to 10".The last thing I want to mention is once this is installed on top of your roof rack crossbar the clearance that you have from the top of your crossbar to the center of this mount, or carrier, which is right here where the two rubber pieces meet, that measurement is 3 1/4". If you remove the clamp and use the T bolt for the channel mount design then that measurement decreases to 2 3/4". That's your clearance over the crossbars, which is helpful to know for bindings. That's gonna do it for today's look at the Rhino Rack Ski and Fishing Rod Carrier.

Questions and Comments about this Video

Rick B.

Will this fit my roof rack, 2 1/2 inch Yakima roof rack? Can I drive with rods in it, or is for slow travel, like at the beach?

Yes, these will fit on the Yakima crossbars. You can use it to transport your rods over the highway.
