Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Aero/Sportz Crossbars Load Stops Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Rhino rack load stops for Rhino rack arrow bars, part number S602. These load stops are going to be great for securing down your cargo to your Rhino rack roof rack or another other roof rack that accepts channel accessories. As you can see here, we're using a ladder, but will work out great for lumber or any other elongated loads. They come in a pair, and they're five inches tall. They're constructed out of a glass reinforced nylon and they feature a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how easy this is to get installed. First thing we can do is go ahead and remove our end cap, and then we can remove our rubber stripping.

Ordinarily, you can trim your rubber strips to fit around your stops, but for demonstration purposes, we're just going to go ahead and leave those out. We'll slide it on like so, then we'll move on to the rest of our hardware. First thing we can take is our plastic plate here, and then our t-bolt. We're going to slide that underneath. Then we'll slide it into the channel here, all the way to our stop.

Then we'll take our flat washer and our lock nut and get that started. I've gone ahead and repeated the same process for the other side. Before we tighten them down, we can go ahead and load up some cargo. If you're going to be carrying the same item every time, like a ladder, then we only have to tighten down once. With the ladder in place, we can go ahead and butt our stopper up against it and tighten it down, and then repeat the same process for the other side. You will have to provide your own tool to tighten it down.

It's just a 10 millimeter socket. If you'd like to, for the foot crossbar, you could pick up some additional load stops, or you could do like we're doing and use the Rhino rack tie down I-nuts, part number S604. This is just going to provide us with a secure point to run some straps through. You'll of course want to be sure and secure your cargo down. We're just using some bungee cords.

You could pick up a twelve piece set with part number 9008600. That's going to complete our look at the Rhino rack load stops for Rhino rack arrow bars, part number S602.

Load Stops for Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars - 4" Tall - Qty 2 - S602

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (15 Customer Reviews)

These 4" tall load stops can be used as ladder pegs or load holders to keep your gear from shifting on your Rhino-Rack Vortex crossbars. The load stops mount into the top channels of your crossbars and include tie-down points.


May have been my error, but the legs shift slightly overtime and require re-adjustment. not as durable. Understandable, but still good to have for ladder security.


Rhino-Rack Vortex 2500 with legs, pads and accessories. Arrived quickly. A 70 year old man assembled and installed in about an hour and a half on a humid 90 degree day. These products appear to be of excellent quality and seem to be more than adequate for carrying a 15 foot fiberglass canoe on our 2011 Buick Lacrosse. Rack offers good flexibility for adding accessories. The wife says the aero shape is way cool!


I think they will work fine. I also think they were too expensive. I believe they were over priced, because people do not know what other brands will fit, if any. I don't have much of a kayak,but I have one heck of a rack.


I ordered these load stops primarily to use to help in the transportation of canoes on my truck. They are nicely made and for my use don't take up as much room on the bar as others that I have seen. They appear to be made of nylon which makes it easy to shorten the upright portion which I will need to do. But more importantly the customer service from this company was first rate. My first order was shipped and never arrived the USPS lost it somewhere in transit. I notified the seller and after waiting the required time for the USPS to maybe find the original order they reshipped another order. I requested that they use a different carrier than the USPS which they did and the second order arrived early.


These cross stops are great with my Rhino rack. I use a pair on one side, and they make it easy to keep loads aligned and braced when tied down on my roof.


looks like it will work great


perfect fit for the ford flex, couldn't be happier!

  • Will M8 T-Bolts Fit a Thule AeroBlade Crossbar
    The Replacement M8 T-Bolts for Rola 59850 are 1.25" long. They are designed to be used with the Eye Bolt Tie-Downs and the Load Stops on a Rola Haul-Your-Might Truck Bed Ladder Rack. The t-bolts used on most roof racks are an M6, not an M8 like the ones on ladder racks so I do not believe they will work together. However, the Eyebolts part # S604 and Load Stops part # S602 are designed for roof rack track mounts so they should work with your AeroBlade crossbars though they have not been...

  • Replacement Load Stop Kit for Thule TH500 Ladder Rack
    For a set of Replacement Load Stops for your Thule TH500 Ladder Rack you can use their kit # 753-3761 which includes 4 each load stops, knobs and T-bolts. My contact at Thule said the part number you referenced is the original part number but that this kit will fit your rack. If you compare these to the stop shown in your photo you'll note they match up.

  • Crossbar Load Stop that Fits Yakima Jetstream Crossbar
    Yakima actually makes a load stop that was designed specifically to fit the Yakima Jetstream crossbars as the part # Y01161. The channel nuts are very similar in size to the # S602 you referenced so most likely these would fit also although it's not been tested.

  • Will Rhino-Rack Load Stops # S602 Work With Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars
    The Load Stops for Rhino-Rack Aero/Sportz Crossbars, part # S602, are able to fit the Vortex Aero Crossbars. If these are for your 2008 Prius, the S602 would work great on the crossbars that are included with the Rhino-Rack roof rack, like part # RRVA126B-2.

  • Load Stop Recommendations for a Thule Xporter and Rhino Rack Aero Bar
    For Rhino Rack Aero bars the correct load stop would be the part # RRSEG which does use the top rail. The correct load stop to use with the Thule Xsporter part # TH500XT that you also referenced also has to use the track on the top of the bars. For that you would want the part # 753-3761.

  • Recommended Roof Rack And Ladder Mount For 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer
    It sounds like your 2007 Chevy Trailblazer has the factory raised rails running front to back on your roof, your best option is to add Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Silver - 46" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA118S-2. You will also need Mount Legs # RRRLT600 and Leg Spacers # RRQMVA05 to install the roof rack. If you already have crossbars running left to right across your roof then you don't need to add this crossbar kit. This crossbar setup is a low-profile aerodynamic design that...

  • 2016 Toyota Tundra Roof Rack and Hitch Mounted Upright Recommendation for 2016 Toyota Tundra
    If you want something heavy duty enough for an 800 mile road trip the Darby you mentioned would not be my first pick. Instead for a confirmed fit for your 2016 Toyota Tundra the Rhino Rack Aero Bar Setup with Load Support # RRVA150S, # RRRLKVAH, # RTL002, and # DK079H would be the best option. Then for load stops for the front crossbar you would want the part # S602. Then for a pair of cinch straps you'd want the part # RRRTD35P.

  • Carrying Plywood Sheets on a 2011 Subaru Forester
    I have a solution for you, but we do not carry large enough roof baskets for this application. Instead, I'd choose a rack that is at least a little wider than the lumber you're intending to carry. This will give you ample room to support the sheet itself, and give you additional room for the tiedowns you'll need in order to keep the panels secure. I've included a link to the range of 54 inch and wider bar kits that fit a 2011 Subaru Forester, but I have a recommendation based on compatibility...

  • Load Stops and Ladder Straps For Rhino Rack Heavy Duty Roof Rack
    Yes, we have the Load Stops # RRRLH1 and # RRRLH which will fit the Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty Roof Rack # Y01-130B. This rack is rated to carry up to 220lbs which should be plenty for your fiberglass ladders but do be sure to verify with your camper shell for any maximum weight capacity from the manufacturer. The Strap # RLS5 and Lock # RLLB will help you to secure the ladders to your rack and help prevent theft.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Ladder Carrier for a 2012 Suzuki SX4
    Hey Demtrios, I recommend checking out the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA118B-2 with the Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRSX100. These crossbars will easily and quickly install onto your existing raised rails, and will provide you with an excellent surface to transport your ladder using the Load Stops for Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars # S602. I also recommend getting the Cam-Lock Ladder Strap with Snap Shackle for Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars # SLS5 to easily...

  • Roof Rack for 2017 Honda CR-V That Offers Load Stops For Ladder Transport
    If you find a vehicle that has the factory side rails, I suggest the rack to use would be the Rhino-Rack RVP Roof Rack for Fixed Mounting Points Vortex Aero Crossbars Part # RRRVP46. Its an excellent design, and does not have any excess hang over with the cross bars. Now a vehicle with a naked roof or without factory rails, the Roof Rack by Rhino Rack includes the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars Part # RRVA137B-2, Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars Part # RRRLKVA,...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2000 Volvo V70
    I have a solution for you, but the TracRac Ladder Rack part # TH29200XT that you referenced is designed for camper shells. Instead you would want the Rhino Rack roof rack that consists of part numbers # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK133. For load stops to use on the roof rack to secure the ladder you would want the part # S602. Then for straps part # RTD3.

  • Roof Rack and Cargo Box for 2017 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab Naked Roof
    Rhino Rack has a great roof rack that fits your 2017 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab with a naked roof with the part numbers # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK108. This is a higher quality aero bar roof rack that rivals Yakima and Thule roof racks in terms of quality but is offered at a lower price. For load stops when carrying lumber the part # S602 would be a great option and then for a cargo box something like the Thule Force XT part # TH6357B is easy to install and use as well as can carry...

  • Which Roof Rack Will Allow Solar Panel To Be Installed On 2021 Mercedes Sprinter?
    If your 2021 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 has factory roof tracks, which I think is what you mean by OEM roof rails, then I would look into a 4 bar roof rack so that your solar panels have more room and support. The Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars Silver - 71" # RRVA180S-4 would be a great option; this also comes in Black # RRVA180B-4. These are aerodynamic crossbars that reduce wind noise when compared to other crossbar styles, and they also have an integrated channel on top for t-slot accessories....

  • Roof Rack and Load Stop Recommendations for ARE or LEER Cap with Factory Tracks
    The TracRac brand was bought out by Thule a number of years ago and some of their products underwent some changes under the transition - the CapRac Ladder Rack TA29200 being one of them. Thule made some upgrades and released it as the part # TH29200XT you're seeing now with our current product images and review videos. We definitely have some roof rack options that will fit OEM tracks on an ARE or LEER topper but the CapRac is designed as a stationary rack so it won't fit into a track...
