Video Transcript for Review of SportRack Roof Box Parts - Replacement Hardware for Explorer Skyline - SR05587

Ellen: Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here, at And we're going to take a quick look at the sport rack replacement hardware kit for your Explorer and Skyline XL cargo boxes. These are going to be for those rooftop cargo boxes, and not only do they fit these sport rack boxes, but they also work for a lot of your kind of older style, maybe the Sears or some other kind of universal cargo boxes. So a lot of times you might pick up that box second hand, it's not got all the pieces, it's been put together kind of wrong. This is going to be a really complete kit to give you everything, all the moving bits and pieces, all the little nuts and bolts to put that back together, get it all fixed up so you can use it again and really give you a nice cargo rooftop box.If you need to put all kinds of fun stuff in there, get your luggage out of your roof or out of your vehicles so you can make more room for cargo, or your family and pets, or whatever else you want to put inside your vehicle.

So it's always really nice to have those rooftop boxes, but they're expensive. There's no way around it. So being able to revamp an older one is a really nice way to go. And this kit is a really good way to get all those spare parts, all the pieces that you might not have, including locks to make sure that that cargo box can work properly. So I'm going to run through the more or less what comes in the kit and also show you kind of how these things are going to go together and talk a little bit more in detail about what comes in here.So let's take a closer look.

The main thing that we're going to get are going to be our hinges here, so these are going to go on either side to provide that spring hinge when you open your box. So it kind of, obviously it's that pivot point for the box to make sure it opens and then it springs back closed. So you get one for either side, you can also use these for your Star Trek rip off, since it pretty much looks like the enterprise. We'll also get some foam tape to put around the edge, to make sure our box is weather resistant. These little stickers are vinyl patches so if there's any holes in the bottom, you can patch it with these guys.

Usually it's just unused mounting holes in the bottom of the box, so you'll want to be sure to put those in place so you don't have any leaks.You get the two snap levers for either side of the box, so these are just going to be those kinds of non-locking levers to close that up. It comes with those two, they are plastic, and that also comes with the hardware to get that installed. So we'll get several different sizes of bolts and nuts to attach those. The hinges for the locking mechanism and for the box itself, and we get our two locks that go into this piece. And this is going to be our lock guide, so it kind of sits on the back of this and allows for that lock to fit down in there and makes it easier for that to slide in place.

It comes to the two keys for the lock, very important. And then we'll have our attachment hardware for getting that box mounted to our roof rack.So you'll have the four U-bolts, a bar to go around those, and then the two wing nuts to go on either side. So a pretty complete kit, and one of the most important things I think that you get with this kit is instructions. Actually lists out everything that comes in the kit, the sizes, the tools that you need, which is just a pair of pliers, a crescent wrench, and a flat blade screwdriver, so nothing too technical. And then also has an exploded view of the box and where everything goes. So if nothing else, getting these instructions is pretty nice to make sure that everything is assembled the way it should be, so you know where everything goes. And again, so you'll have spare parts if anything happens to go wrong with your box.So I hope this video has been helpful in deciding if this is going to be the right kit for you. Should be a great way to revamp an older cargo box to make sure that it's still usable, keep that guy going for as many years as you can. And that's pretty much it for our look at the replacement hardware for your rooftop cargo box. Again, hope this has been helpful. We do have a lot of replacement parts here at, along with a lot of other accessories as well, so check them out. Thanks for watching.

Replaces the mounting hardware for SportRack Explorer or SkyLine XL roof mounted cargo boxes. Includes everything necessary to mount 1 cargo box a roof rack.


I was ordering individual parts I needed to repair our 'aged' rooftop carrier and then noticed a 'kit' with all the parts I needed...and then some. I figured I'd have to find some of the other parts and supplies elsewhere. Boom...everything I needed in one kit and costs less than all the individual parts. Shipping costs completely reasonable and it arrived a day or two early to boot! EXACTLY the 'service' that sets a company (People and culture) above the rest! Oh...and everything looks to be quality and original parts....and you even included a complete parts and assembly manual! Double BOOM!! I have several trailers and two other rooftop carriers...will be ordering parts from you!

The parts worked out great...made the rooftop carrier like new! Thanks


I bought this Sears X-Cargo for $10 from a garage sale. Knowing it had alot of important pieces missing, I was told just click strap to the roof. Smh, I searched for the mounting brackets and replacement locks hoping to not spend an arm and a leg. I had doubted myself. I thought I would'nt find pany parts for this exact model since it was a sears. After many searches, I found etrailer. This kit from etrailer had every part to restore the X-Cargo to make it better then new. I replaced Evey part and cleaned it up. The kit has instructions to show how each part is properly assembled. Turned out that it wasn't properly assembled when I got it. The kit was a really great price and shipping was great quality. Came in three to four days. I took it on a road trip already and it was the best investment ever. I would highly recommend etrailer if someone finds anything that can be fixed and resold. Overall I only spent $70 when these are $250-$300 brand-new. Thank you etrailer.


It’s pretty awesome being able order replacement hardware for my SportRack Cargo box that I’ve owned for 4-5 years! The hardware was rusty & corroded, I live in Southeast Alaska, rain country! Feels like I have a new cargo box again! Thank you etrailer!


Perfect kit


etrailer always has the best prices and everything I want and need for any trailer or carrier I have! To replace my 23 year old Sears hard cargo carrier is over $600 and for $110 I bought all new guts to keep it good for another 22 years!



Changed all the hinges and clamps, spray painted my carrier after filling weak spots with a hardening substance. Carrier doesn’t look bad and all new parts are perfect! I have a new carrier at least hinges it’s sturdy and working perfect! I plan to keep it another 23+ years.


Great product. Exactly what I needed to overhaul a Explorer cargo box I purchased 2nd hand. All the hardware fit as it should. This kit also comes with new lock cylinders which were the main reason I chose this kit.

Refurbished an old sears cargo carrier. All the parts fit perfectly and work flawlessly still.


Everything came very quickly. I got my cargo carrier free from a friend but could tell there were a couple pieces missing plus there were no keys to the locks either. This replacement hardware had everything I needed. In another month I'll try out my carrier on vacation. Thanks etrailer for having what I needed.



Roof kit came at the right time when you said it would. Got the parts on the cargo box and away we went on vacation. Great job to you and your team. If I need anything else I know I can come back to yall plus Ill tell others of the wonderful job that yall did getting the kit to me right when I needed it.


Parts kit provided everything I needed to revive a car top carrier. I initially needed only locks and keys. However, after viewing the cost of a complete kit it made sense to replace a few more hardware items and have spare parts.



Has to be longer than a year. The parts are working fine every time we go on vacation. Ill keep you in mind for future needs.


Arrived as described and quicker than expected. Thanks!


The kit worked out great a d the sales team was awesome. There was only one small issue and they took care of it immediately. Great customer service.

This kit worked perfectly for my 2000 Sears X-Cargo luggage carrier.


This kit from etrailer enable me to modernize an older roof top luggage carrier. Although I did not use everything in the kit, the hinges made a huge difference. I would highly recommend this kit and etrailer.


Get price for an hardware set I was surprised I could actually get since I needed more than a few parts on this cargo box. Easy ordering and fast shipping made it a great transaction. Thanks!



Thanks to the hardware kit we were able to use our SportRack carrier on 3 trips last summer. Looking forward to using it again this year!


Customer Service representative Paula S of etrailer was very helpful in assisting us with our product needs and most cost effective solutions!


Parts worked exactly as I had hoped. All of the hardware is available to replace everything except the cargo box itself, and for a great price to boot! Works for both the Sportrack Explorer and Karrite Voyager.


We received the accessory parts for our roof rack carrier in record time. I was most impressed by the fact that everything fit correctly even though our carrier was several years old. Made our trip to Florida much less stressful! Great products and exceptional service!! Price was great too!
Thank you!!


Ordered the parts and they came in just a short time. Put them on and it was like I had a new car topper. Totally awesome great customer service and I would definitely order from them again and I highly recommend them.

Bev C.


perfect and its great to know I can depend on etrailer customer service any time.


I needed replacement locks and keys and the U-Bolts to fit on the new Thule bars I purchased. Buying this kit made perfect sense. In addition, I can replace nuts and bolts later if they ever corrode now that I have them from this kit.


Our used carrier has NEW life thanks to the hardware kit! We were going to just replace lock but replacing all the hardware paid off and the price for the hardwarentire is very reasonable.


This is a great "rehab" kit for your old Karrite Voyager Car Top Carrier! Everything is an exact fit. My carrier is 15+ years old and the plastic is in great condition. However, the hardware was showing its age. It was nice to replace old rusted hinges, worn out braces, broken wing nuts and rotten weather stripping. It's like new now and ready for another 15 years!


The package allowed me to restore my rooftop to like new.


I needed to replace some parts of our Karite rooftop carrier, this has everything I need! It’s awesome! Thank you! Buy this for Karite Sears carrier


My first order with Etrailer, and the service was fantastic. Keep up your great work.

Jaime V.


In Chile, I rent roof cargo boxes and sometimes I need spare part for them. Also, I am the only one that sell spare parts.


Received my replacement parts for a luggage rack for my vehicle within three days which I thought was great. Had a question on installation and had to call for assistance. The representative was very helpful and made informed suggestions on my installation. I will not hesitate using etrailer in the future and I would highly recommend them.


Your product was very good and your service was excellent also..Not sure about your vender.. Thank You very much.


etrailer’s customer service rocks! Placed an order that ended up not being able to be here before we left for vacation, so Tim was able to help me find another product that would fit my need and he made sure it would get here before we left. He followed up with an email providing the tracking number. Thank you Tim for saving the day!!
