How to Install the Rola Roof Cargo Basket on a 2014 Ford Explorer

Today on our 2014 Ford Explorer, we're going to be test fitting the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket. With 130 pound capacity, its part number is 59504. With our Thule Rapid Crossroads Roof Rack System already installed on the Explorer, we're going to begin our test fit by placing our cargo basket directly onto our load bars. We'll take a quick look to be sure we have it centered. We'll then take the four black plastic portions of our clamp, place them above our load bar and below our cargo basket in between two of the parallel bars. With this done at all four corners, we'll now take the flat metal portion of our clamp and place it over top, and then bring one of the black rubber coated u-bolts around the underside, hooking it into both sides of the upper portion of our clamp. We'll then secure it by threading on a wing nut, and then finally by tightening them both down.

With this clamp secure, we'll move around to the other three and repeat that same tightening process. With all of our clamps tight, we're ready to load this basket down with some gear and we can get on the road. That's going to complete today's test fit of the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part number 59504, on our 2014 Ford Explorer. .
