Review of the RockyMounts Ski and Snowboard Racks on a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta


Today on our 2013 Volkswagen Jetta, we're doing a test fit of the Rocky Mounts Lift Up Biggie Ski and Snowboard carrier. That part number is RKY1482. We already have our front half on, we're going to show you how we load up the back half. The first thing we'll do is make sure that our cables are all facing the right way, and we'll slide it on and line it up with the front as best we can. Then we'll take our cable, bring it around the front, and fit that into this lock here. With that in place, we can take any type of Allen key or Allen tool that will fit, and we'll just tighten this bolt down here on the side. Tightening this bolt is going to actually tighten our strap around the bottom of the crossbar and secure that in place.

Once you have it a little tight, you can steady the carrier on there and it makes it a little easier to tighten down. We don't want to over tighten either or you have the possibility of damaging your crossbars. If we open up our carrier, we can take our cover, fit that over our cable. We're going to take that same Allen tool and we're going to tighten down this bolt here in the center. That is going to tighten down our cover over our cable so no one can come up and loosen everything and take your carriers off of your vehicle.

We do have those locks on there, you are going to be able to lock up your carrier whether you have anything in the carrier or not, just to make sure nobody can take that off. We'll come over here to the other side. Move our cover out of the way, and do the same thing. Tighten that down. With this carrier, you can carry up to 5 fat skis, or 4 snowboards, or you can do a combination of the 2 like we'll do today. Secured down, and then we can move around and open the other half of our carrier, and load up our boards. When we load up snowboards, we want them bottom to bottom as you see here.

We can set them on the cushion and push them over as far as we want. Then we can take our skis and load those up as well. We'll close out carriers all the way, and again we have that option to lock them so you don't have to worry about taking your skis and snowboards off of your carriers if you're leaving your vehicle. That's going to be our completed look at the Rocky Mounts Lift Up Biggie Ski and Snowboard carriers. Part number RKY1482 on our 2013 Volkswagen Jetta.
