Soft Rubber Padding for Safe Transport
fishing rod carrier

The Rhino-Rack fishing rod carrier's soft rubber padding grips the contours of your rods, ensuring they'll arrive at the water without being damaged. This carrier is capable of holding up to 5 full-length fishing poles, from a basic spinning rod to a fly fishing rod. It also doubles as a ski and snowboard carrier so you can load it up and hit the slopes in the winter months.

Quick and Easy Access
push button release

A large push button on the side of each unit makes it easy to open the carrier. The spring-loaded arms pop open once the button is engaged and remain elevated while you're loading your skis or rods. When you're ready to head out, just push the arm down until it snaps into place.

Built-In Security

The carrier comes equipped with Rhino-Rack Masterkey lock cores to deter theft and provide peace of mind if you make a pit stop or park overnight during your fishing trip. If you have other Rhino-Rack gear and want everything keyed-alike, you can swap out (sold separately) the lock cores to match.

Universal Mounting
locking mechanism
Whether you prefer accessories that clamp around your crossbars or install in the bar's top channels, the Rhino-Rack fishing rod carrier has you covered. The universal mounting hardware lets you use the carrier on round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars right out of the box.

Just installed it on my Tonneau cover and one fishing trip under its belt. 6 miles on a rough road to get off the beaten path for some fly fishing. Poles never budged. Easy to install and works great



Still working as new and use it all the time. In fact had 2 rods in it yesterday


Just awesome… I took the liberty of modifying the mount by adding RAM suction cups… works just great!


Rack attached fine to my 2018 Subaru Outback. Went on a 4 hour drive no issues.easy Install


Sturdy product, easy to use. As an avid fisherman i know i ll be using the rhino rack often. Very useful and safer while transporting my rods to favorite fishing spots.


The product is what I was expecting to be able to carry my fishing rods. I have a Yakima Rack system so the downside was I had to buy longer bolts to accomodate. Not an easy task at Home Depot, Lowe’s or Tractor supply.


Love the idea & convenience of a rod carrier. The 5 pole rhino rack carrier doesn't work properly. Somethings wrong with the locking mechanism on 1 of the 2 piece carriers. After you lock it, (which is recommended before your off on your journey) it wouldn't unlock!! Happened 2x. Right after installing I used key to lock/unlock. Just to test. Lock got jammed while trying to unlock with key. Took 10 minutes of fiddling to finally unlock.
2nd time I was up in Big Bear about to start fishing at 5am & again lock was jammed. Now I'm panicked & upset. THIS CANT HAPPEN. Im returning & exchanging this product

I sorry this is happening! Customer Service will contact you asap.


Best addition to my 4Runner! Holds rods (including fly rod) securely and stable. Stood the test of MILES!


I put these on my roof rack and they work great. They held my 5 fishing poles on my road trip from FL to TX with zero issues.


My roof racks arrived quickly and as advertised! They work excellent and my fishing poles hold nice and tight.

Thank you


etrailer could not have made it easier ! I am really enjoying the Rhino-Rack Fishing Rod Carrier - Locking - 5 Fishing Rods holder. It was easy to install and made transporting my rods a snap.
Thank you etrailer !!!


Very good quality very happy with my purchase! Easy to install


It has come in very handy and has excellent quality, and we are actually thinking about getting a larger one


It Gets the Job Done!! Highly recommend !!


Holds fishing poles as I imagined. Seems like good quality. Including 1 or 2 different size bolts would have been nice. The bolts it came with did not fit my roof rack cross bars.


The fishing rod holders (ski racks) work great. Fast service and shipping. Thanks


So far great item , will be doing a lot of fishing now

They hold rods well. The main problem is that surf spinning rods with large reels have to place with reels up to avoid hitting roof. This can make it a bit difficult to place a number of rods with large surf reels in rack at the same time


The product is perfect however the instructions need to be revised. According to the pamphlet you get, it looks like you should have all these parts but most of them are already installed into the rack, which is great but shouldn’t be a part your looking for. Just confusing. After realizing this, it was simple. Took our first trip to the beach and worked perfect for our fishing rods! Thank you, solved our problem.


A year I to using the rack and it works great. Holds the fishing rods and is easy to use and mount.


Bought this product for my fishing rods. Drove from Texas to California with it. No problems! Finally, we don't have to deal with the rods being inside! Easy to install as well.


Worked great. Quality material.

Still performing above expectations. Well made quality product.


Easy to install, works great.

After a year of hard use, the rod holder still works great! I wish I had bought one sooner!


I can fit 4 salt water rods with no problem. Locking feature is a big plus.


I recently purchased this product to carry my fishing poles on my 2014 Toyota 4Runner and it works great!


Great product and purpose is wonderful. Helps reduce the amount of storage needed inside of vehicle. The only feedback/suggestion I have is: Add 3/4 to an inch height to allow for larger surf fishing reels so they don't hit the top of the vehicle. If it wasn't for the height issue I would have give you a 5 rating!
