Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Aero Roof Rack Installation - 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt

Today on our 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Two-Door, we'll be test fitting a Rhino Rack Roof Rack System. We'll be using the DA118 Bars and the fit kit for our vehicle is part number DK182. Now, the bars are also available in black and that's part number DA118B. We've already got our roof rack assembled according to the instructions and now we're ready to fit it up on the vehicle. First thing we need to do is open our doors. We'll take our front bar assembly and set it up on top of our roof.

To position it correctly, we need to measure from the seam where our door meets the body at the back to the center of the front bar, and we need to set this measurement at 700 mm or 27-9/16 inches. Once we had the front bar in position, we'll use the included tool to tighten down the adjustment bolts, making sure that we have the clips fitted properly against the frame of our door. Now, we'll grab our rear bar and set it up on top of the roof. To position the rear bar properly, we'll measure from the center of the front bar to the center of the rear bar and set this measurement at 550 mm. This measurement is known as the crossbar spread and is a useful piece of information to have when shopping for accessories.

With the rear bar in position, we'll go ahead and tighten it down just like we did the front bar. Once we have the roof rack tightened down, all we have to do is reinstall our locking covers and close the doors. With that done, our roof rack is mounted to our vehicle and we're ready to start adding accessories. That's it for our test fit of the Rhino Rack Roof Rack System on our 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Two-Door.

Product worked as intended to. Roof rack bars stay solidly attached to the car, and the rubber feet help protect the roof from scratches.




by:

I've only just installed this rack but it seems alright so far. The most annoying thing for installation was the length to cut the rubber strips was wrong in the instructions. I had to re-cut them and will have to do so again in order to get the rack to lock, leaving them in multiple pieces which seems un-ideal.

Shipment came in good quality, waiting for a day to install. I am excited. Representative called to inform me of delay, that was nice.

Product was fine. They didn't have it in stock though and it took forever to ship.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I bought this last yr to haul my kayaks on my Toyota camry. Being 5'2", getting them on top of my SUV was next to impossible for me and my daughters. Since then, I have traveled from Michigan, all the way to the west coast with two 13' ft kayaks. These racks have been absolutely perfect in every aspect. I mounted them myself, and checked them regularly to see if they needed adjusted. Not once did they loosen or move. They with stood Traveling with speed limits reaching 80 mph on I84, along with the windy weather on our cross-country trip. My car moved around from the high winds, and the racks stayed put. These racks have by far reached and surpassed every expectation I had when purchasing them. I would not recommend another. Only thing I would recommend is showing installation for both front and back bars, since the measurements are slightly different for both. As I had to figure this out my self, after watching the installation video. Thank you Rhino for providing such a high quality product.

Great product. I put the removable racks and brackets on my car as soon as I received them in the mail and have not removed them since. They are used everyday to hold my Yakima rooftop box.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


This rack is a great product and has worked great for the kayaks I hauled across the country over the last year. Only things I can complain about is the extra wind noise with them on, and the lack of strap anchors. Otherwise, has worked great for me.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Excellent product! I installed this roof rack on my brand new 2020 Honda Civic Sport. Since my car has dual center exhaust, a hitch mount was not an option. I paired it with the RockyMounts Brass knuckles wheel on bike carrier. It was straight forward to install and for over a year everything has worked flawlessly. Obviously I take a hit on fuel economy especially at highway speeds with 2 bikes on the roof. I recently took a road trip and averaged about 31 mpg (would be about 38 mpg with no racks or bikes). However without bikes, I was averaged about 35 mpg which isn't too much impact. The Rhino Racks were a little bit less expensive than the competition but no compromises at all. Definitely recommend these Rhino Racks and RockyMounts Brass knuckles bike carrier.


Comments
After one year, everything is still working great. The only observation is that the car window seals are worn or slightly torn at the rack clamp locations. I guess the same issue could happen with any add on rack. Im not sure if this will become an issue or not but Ill keep an eye on it.

I ordered the RhinoRack on a Friday afternoon and received it on the following Wednesday (free shipping) from halfway across the country. The product is on the same level of quality as roof racks twice the price. It fit perfectly on my vehicle and is very strongly mounted. The videos etrailer has and the product instructions made installation a breeze. I highly recommend RhinoRack and etrailer.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I love the racks. The only thing I'm concerned is the the measurement for the front rack. It's sitting about 2/3 on the metal part of the roof of the cab with instruction measurement of 165 mm. So far it working alright or should i make adjustment for a flush fit. Photos will show.


Comments
Thanks for your review. I took a look at the installation details and it is meant to fit 165 mm properly.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I purchased the complete 2500 Series system which included the crossbars, legs and fit kit for my 2018 Honda Fit so I could transport my kayak.. They were well packaged and their quality is quite evident. I did struggle a little following the assembly instructions but with some patience and watching a video it went well. Two items to be aware of. The front and rear leg clamps are of different lengths with the longer clamps going on the rear crossbar. The other issue was positioning the crossbars. After following the measurements for attaching the legs to the crossbars it was quite clear that the measurement for the rear crossbar was wrong. Placing the legs as instructed didn't allow the rear crossbars to be the 29 17/32 inches from the front crossbar but required me to move it back to 31 1/2 inches. There is a very faint whistle while driving around 30 to 35 mph but it's not annoying. I was so pleased with the fit and finish I went ahead and purchased the Rhino Rack S-loader to make it easier for me to lift my kayak onto the crossbars. I would definitely recommend both items.

Perfect fit for the 2020 Equinox. Thick, heavy feet prevents paint damage. A tip - wax the roof and contact areas with a good quality wax before installation.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


This review covers the Rhino Rack 2500 Vortex Aero crossbars and associated parts (DK284, RRRLKVA, RRVA137S-2) for a naked roof installation on a 2018 Honda CR-V.

Very solid racks. We just took our first trip using them and the didn't budge. As recommended, a few days after installing, I tightened the bolts a bit. I'm not sure they needed it--just a little insurance.

The installation process was clear, but fairly detailed. It would be easy to miss a step, so take your time. Also, I tried a couple shortcuts in the order when installing on the car, but had to back track. So, go in the order they give you.

The racks easily supported our filled "pod" and a couple surfboards, strapped side-by-side. Sorry, no photos of the rack loaded. One thing to watch out for is that our old Thule pod almost didn't fit because of the thickness of the racks. I had to loosen the bolts almost entirely.

Of note: I feel that although I followed the measurements to the millimeter, the fit on our 2018 Honda CR-V wasn't exact. Where the pads sit on the roof of the car didn't align perfectly. I could have adjusted this by just re-trimming the rubber pads that go in the channels, but it's not a big deal, so I just left it.

Finally, I do have one concern. The angle of final installation doesn't really protect the racks from theft very well. The plastic plate that locks over the screw would allow someone with the proper tool to get up under it and loosen the bolts. That being said, someone so inclined could also just break the little plastic door or drill a hole in it to access the bolt. So, I guess it's just a deterrent anyway.

Overall, I'm very happy with the racks and etrailer.com! Despite shipping delays due to Covid-19, they were able to get the racks to me in time for an upcoming trip. I did choose to expedite shipping, but the cost was very reasonable.


Comments
The racks are still working well, a year later. Ive used them to haul small loads of lumber and other items from the local big box hardware store.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


From the minute Erica, from etrailer answered the phone and took my order, the process of getting my new Rhino-Rack 2500 was easy. Once my auto body shop installed the rack, I saw what a quality product the Rhino-Rack 2500 is. It fits my 2017 Toyota Corolla like it was from the factory. It looks great on the car and the functionality is excellent. I love it and highly recommend etrailer and Rhino-Rack products

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


This roof rack works great! At first I was skeptical about putting a rack on my IS250, but it couldn't have turned out better. Paired with the Yakima Highroad, I can easily transport my bikes around without worrying about anything coming loose while driving. The installation instructions for the legs and bars are pretty straightforward. Takes about 30-45 minutes total to install.

Seamless installation. The instructions were well thought out and easy to follow. A year after installation the contact points are solid as when first installed. The rack system matches the truck and gives it a great look.

Product works as advertised on my 2016 Ram 1500. I used my old cross member and installed it on top of the cab to hold the front end of my tandem kayak. Awesome product.

After a year and my Custom DK Fit Kit for 4 Rhino-Rack 2500 works like a charm. I’ve use it to carry my kayak, lumber, fence pipe and even an old trailer frame all while keeping my truck looking clean.

Love it, fast shipping, works great and it looks awesome on my car :)


Comments
After a year, the rack is still in very top shape, easy to remove for the winter since I use is only for Kayaks in the summer, easy reinstall. One thing that barely need to be mentioned, some the noise is created on the side tips when driving moderately *cough* *cough*, but it is to be expected since it doesnt serve for aerodynamic :

carry my old town pdl 120 kayak on my 2014 Ram 3500 Crew cab dually. Heavy kayak. I'm a full time rider and sometimes travel hundreds of miles before stopping. Never had an issue. Front rack had a lot of wind noise but I wrapped paracord around it...problem solved. Worth the money!

Still going strong. Just make sure you tighten periodically.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


I've had Thule & Yakima products over the years, with no issues. But I'm really glad I ordered this set-up for my 2021 F-150. I think you get just as good of a product from Rhino, maybe even better, for a slightly lower price. Everything feels sturdy and well made (with the possible exception of the locking covers, which feel a bit flimsy). I really like this set-up, and the precise measurements and guides made for a perfect snug fit. The rubber strip running on the upper long edge of the bars feels like it will definately help keep accessories from sliding out of place.

Review from a similar DK in Roof Rack


Choosing a system for transporting my new (to me, they're actually used) kayaks was TOUGH. I love my little 2017 Honda Fit, and I knew I would love my new kayaks when I got them. I don't want anything bad to happen to either! Also, my car is small and the kayaks are fairly large, comparatively. I've strapped a lot of things to a lot of vehicles, but this is going to be a long term relationship, so I wanted to get it right the first time.

I've been researching and reading reviews for months, but I got confirmation that the kayaks were ready for pickup, so I needed to make a decision! I ultimately pulled the trigger on the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars with the 2500 Series Legs and Custom DK Fit Kit for my naked roof car and the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs.

I placed my order on 09/15/21 at 6 PM. The estimated delivery date was 09/23/21, which made me a little sad. I really wanted to pick up my boats on Sunday, 09/19/21, but I figured I'd waited THIS long, I could probably handle waiting another week. I was very pleasantly surprised to receive an email at 8 PM the same evening notifying me that my order had shipped. AND, even better, the UPS tracking was showing delivery on 09/18/21 by 7PM! I was beyond excited, but didn't get my hopes up because shipping has been pretty hit or miss since well before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, UPS delivered my package just before noon on Saturday, which was amazing!

I got everything unpacked and reviewed to ensure that I had all I would need to assemble the system - check. Nothing missing, which is always an auspicious start. Then I started reading the instructions - UGH. This is (so far) the ONLY thing I have to complain about. I have put together furniture that had clearer instructions. I probably should have gone to Google to find a [online] video, but I powered through with the instructions provided. Since I've never put together or used a roof rack before, I didn't really know what the final outcome should look like, so that made interpreting the instructions very difficult - the pictures were not super clear, and the accompanying text did not improve the situation. Now that I know what it looks like assembled, I get it, but at the time it was rough. I estimated it took me about 2 hours to get the rack assembled and secured to my car, and towards the end my fiancé arrived and helped me to realize that the foot pads were not properly attached to the feet, which made a huge difference! The kayak carrier was much easier to install, taking maybe 15 additional minutes.

The foot pads rest in the groove on the edge of the roof, I assume over the frame of the car. There's absolutely no flex in the roof where the feet sit. The hook part of the clamp rests against the metal of the car, under the rubber seal, so I don't foresee any potential issues with the seal as a result of the rack. The doors close as normal, and the rack has no movement whatsoever once tightened down. I've now used it as a handle to pull myself up towards the roof a few times (I'm about 190 lbs), and I feel totally confident that it's not going anywhere. I now have ideas about how to use the rack to haul around the larger stuff that won't fit INSIDE my car (which isn't much - I HIGHLY recommend this car!).

So, the big question - how'd it go with the kayaks?

In short - perfection! I was slightly concerned about the boats overhanging the front or back of my car, as they're 12.5 ft long and my car is just over 13 ft long. Eeeeek! I needn't have worried. They fit like a dream, and even without bow or stern tie downs were very secure during our trip home. We took local roads instead of the highway because we didn't tie down the bow and stern, so we probably didn't go over 40 ish MPH, but I saw absolutely no lift (I can see the ends of the boats out of the front windshield). I will be using those tie downs in the future, and anticipate no issues with highway speeds under those conditions.

Obviously, only time will tell how everything holds up/works out, but at this stage, I am extremely pleased with my decision and am looking forward to many kayaking adventures to come! I only have one picture at this point, but may take a few more and add them so anyone else considering a similar setup knows what they'll be getting.

  • Sturdy Roof Rack Recommendation for 2008 Chevy Cobalt
    For a vehicle like your 2008 Chevy Cobalt I would not want to recommend a track style of rack as the best option.
