A few things I want to point out before we get started, we have the flip-fit bracket on this carrier, and what this does is basically you can adjust it to fit better your roof rack system. So for this bar, since it's a little thicker, we're going to turn it so that it's in a sort of "U" position, or a smile, whatever you want to think of it as. And that just gives us a little bit more room for our bar to fit. If we had square or round bars, you could flip it this way. Or maybe if they we're thinner factory bars, this way would be what would fit our bar better. Another thing is, this is adjustable. So we can push it out to go over the entire length of our bar. And then once we have it in place, can flip that flip-fit bracket around so we have it the right way for our bar.
