Review of SportRack Accessories and Parts SR05493

Today, we're going to be taking a look at part number SR05493. This is the replacement mounting hardware for SportRack aero cargo carriers. This product is going to fit the SportRack Aero 1300, SportRack AeroXL, SportRack Series 28 Roof Box, SportRack Expedition Cargo Box and the SportRack Explorer Cargo Box. You can see here that you're going to have your large plate and your small plate. It's going to come complete with four mounting assemblies so four U-bolt kits. I have two of them put together already just so we can get an illustration of what it looks like.

If your cargo box is already familiar with this type of a kit, then you'll probably be really familiar with how it works. The U-bolt goes around the under side of the load bar or the crossbar on the vehicle. The ends of the U-bolt are going to come up through the bottom of the cargo box. In between the roof rack crossbar and the bottom of the cargo box, we're going to need to have this large plate. On the inside of the cargo box, we're going to use the small plate. Once you have the bolts run through there, simply use the wing nuts to tighten it down securely to your roof rack crossbars. Now, I just want to go to the dimensions of both sizes of the plate or both plate sizes.

The large plate if you take a measurement of that, starting with the length, that going to measure 5 1/5 inches. Then the width is going to measure 2 1/2 inches. The small plate is going to give us a length of 5 inches and then it's going to give us a width of around 1 inch. Really simple installation. It's very easy to swap out the hardware with new hardware. Again, this is a complete kit for all four mounting locations of your cargo box.

Then it's going to come with the circular stickers here. That way, you can pill those off, put them over the exposed holes in the floor of the box and the hardware that's not being used. It's going to cover up those. It's going to keep moisture out as well as any type of dirt and debris and grime from getting inside your box and on your gear. Then the actual U-bolts, the diameter of these are going to measure 7/32 of an inch. The dimensions, if we take a measurement from center of one stud to the center of the other, that's going to give us a measurement of 4 inches.

That's going to do it for today's review of part number SR05493. This is the replacement mounting hardware for SportRack Aero Cargo Boxes. .
