Review of the Rola Roof Cargo Carrier on a 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon

Today on our 2014 Subaru Outback, we're going to be test fitting the Roller Roof Mounted Cargo Basket. This is designed for use with both factory or after market cross bars. It's part number is 59504. We've got our Outback's cross rails already extended and set into place. We're going to begin our test fit by placing our basket right up onto those bars. We'll take a quick look to be sure that we have it centered, but it seems like this basket fits perfectly between the two rails on the roof line here. I do need to adjust it slightly, but it's a really good fit.

Once we have it in position, we're going to take our black plastic spacers, they're going to sit right on top of those crossbars and they'll clip in between two of the parallel running bars here on the cargo carrier itself. These spacers are meant to elevate the carrier and the material they're made of will help to grip your crossbar while it protects it from any kind of scratches or scrapes. Once we have those in place, we're going to take our flat metal upper portion of our clamp. It's got two squares in it, those squares fit right on top of those spacer blocks. We can then take one of our black rubber coated metal U bolts, we'll bring it around the underside of the crossbar, slide one half of it into the slot on the clamp, then our other half. Then just go through and tighten down our two wing nuts.

Just like that we'll have that corner secure and we'll move onto our next one. Again, metal flat portion's going to go on top of the spacer, our U bolt is going to come around the underside, and then the wing nut is going to go on to secure that clamp in place. All right, with both on the driver's side secure, we'll make our way around to the passenger side, and continue the process. Around the underside, back up through, and our wing nuts will go on top. These cargo carriers are very nice for freeing up room inside your car, help you get your gear stored on top so you open up room for passengers or pets or if you've got the dirty, muddy stuff that you don't really want inside your car, you've got to take it home with you, you can't leave it out there. So throw it up on here and it's going to save the interior.

Once we have all eight of the wing nuts tightened down, we've got our carrier secured to the vehicle and we're ready to hit the road. That will complete today's test fit of the Roller Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part number 59504 on our 2014 Subaru Outback. .
