Review of the Rola Roof Cargo Carrier on a 2011 Honda Pilot

Today on our 2011 Honda Pilot, we'll be doing a test fit of the Rola roof mounted cargo basket. That's part number 59504. It measures 52 inches long by 40 1/2 inches wide by 6 inches deep with a nice 130 pound weight capacity. It's going to fit most roof rack systems as well as most factory roof rack systems. I've already got three of the feet installed to secure our basket to our factory roof rack. I'm going to go ahead and show you how to install the last one here. First thing, we need to grab is our hardware, of course.

Let's grab this portion inaudible 00:39. This is going to go between our basket and our factory crossbar. We'll kind of slightly lift up on our basket, slide it in. We're just going to clip it in on the side like that and it will move it a little more, about 3 inches in. Then we'll grab the top portion of our clamp.

Keep in mind, you want to make sure that you have a crossbar spread between 26 and 37 inches in order for this to safely work out for you. With that portion done, let's go ahead and grab our U-bolt. We want to make sure that one of the thumb screws is undone. We're just going to go underneath. We're going to put them both in between the forks here. We'll slide on in, bring the other one underneath and then replace our thumb screw.

Just going to make I'm tightening those down nice and even, making sure that the top portion of our clamp here is staying in line with the squares there. No reason to over tighten. Once you got it nice and secure, it's not going anywhere, with all four in place, that is. Also, once you got it done, you'll notice that it will add a nice little slick finish to the vehicle, plenty of room to free up clatter from inside your vehicle. Then we've got it. Give it a nice shake here.

As you can see, it's nice and secure to our factory crossbars. That's going to complete our test fit of the Rola roof mounted cargo basket, part number 59504 on our 2011 Honda Pilot. .
