Kuat Grip Extender

The Kuat Grip lets you carry up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards on your vehicle's roof rack. Sliding arms make it great for use with your tall SUV, and large grip handles let you open the arms while wearing your heavy snow gloves. It's quick and easy to install and remove, but with the stylish look and low-profile design you may want to leave it on your vehicle all season long. It also includes locks to secure your gear to the Grip and the Grip to your roof rack.

Extends for Easy Loading and Unloading

Kuat Grip Extender extending over car

The Grip carrier has arms that slide out from the side of your vehicle. This makes it easy to load and unload your boards or skis without having to reach up over your car roof or use the inside of your vehicle as a makeshift ladder.

Kuat Grip Handles

Pull against the tabs on each tray to unlock them and slide them out. When you are done loading or unloading your gear simply slide each arm back into position. An audible click lets you know they're locked.

Large Grip Handles

Kuat Grip Handles

The carrier has oversized handles that are easy to grip even when wearing heavy winter gloves. Simply pull up on the handle to open the cradle and load your gear.

GripLock Rubber Teeth

Kuat Grip Extender GripLock rubber teeth

The teeth on the Grip are made of sturdy yet flexible rubber. They put a tight grip on your gear so you know it's not going slide off the carrier as you drive up the mountain. They are also soft so your gear won't get scratched or scuffed.

Easy Installation

Kuat Grip Flip mounts

The carrier installs quickly and easily with the included Flip mounts. They have rubber-coated stainless steel straps that wrap around your crossbars. Simply run a strap beneath the crossbar and hook it into the bracket on the opposite side of the mount. Use the included Allen key to tighten the straps in place.

Kuat Grip Angle Adjustment

You can adjust the angle of each Grip to accommodate the contour of your vehicle's roof. This allows the Grips to sit level to reduce wind resistance and noise as you drive. Simply loosen the angle adjustment bolts, level each Grip, then tighten the bolt.

Security for Your Skis

Kuat Grip One Key Security

The Grip comes equipped with a complete locking cylinder system. The arms lock to secure your skis to the carrier, and the mounting hardware locks to secure the carrier to your roof rack. All 6 cylinders are keyed alike so you'll only have to keep track of one key for the entire system.

Video Transcript for Kuat Grip Slide Out Ski and Snowboard Carrier Review

Hey, everyone. Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Kuat Grip Slideout Ski and Snowboard Carrier. This is a great accessory for your vehicle, and will allow you to haul your skis and snowboards to and from the slopes. Now we have two different sizes available. We have the larger of the two sizes on our roof rack right now. This is gonna be able to haul up to six sets of skis or four boards, or just a combination of both like you see we have on it right now.

But if you don't quite need all of that capacity, you can get the smaller size, which will haul up to four sets of skis or two snowboards. It's available in the colors black, gray and pearl. Just see for whatever color fits your vehicle best.Now I've gone ahead and gotten each color installed on the vehicle with the appropriate color, just to show you how Kuat went that extra mile to make sure your racks not only work well, but they're also gonna look good on your vehicle. Let's come over here and take a closer look at each one. Because the gray and the black can be a little bit deceiving from afar.

Right here we have our black vehicle and our black Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier. You're gonna see that they did a great job of just matching the color scheme. We all know that black is a very popular color when it comes to choosing your vehicle.Now we come over here to the gray, so you can get a closer look at it. One of the differences with the gray one, when compared to the other two, is they have that orange strip on the bottom, which isn't too noticeable, but it does add to the style of it. Again, great job what they did of matching the gray to the gray of our vehicle right here.

My personal favorite is how they found this pearl-white carrier, and they got it to match perfectly with our pearl-white vehicle. If I'm being honest, if I had a pearl-white vehicle, and I wanted a ski and snowboard carrier, they're the only ones that offer it in that color. So not only am I gonna be able to haul my skis and snowboards up and down the mountain, but I'm also gonna look good doing it.Now in my opinion, what sets this carrier apart from its competitors is how user-friendly it is. To start, with this very large opening with a handle on it, that even with my large gloves on, I can still open and close the carrier with ease. When we wanna unload our skis, or even load them up, it has a spring-loaded system on the other side, so we can just push up on the handle, and it's gonna fly open like so.

We'll do that to both sides.Now if you notice, our snowboard is on the complete other side of our vehicle right now. So especially for someone with a height restriction like myself, it's gonna be very hard to access over there. Luckily, Kuat has solves this problem. All we gotta do is pull on these tabs that are on the inside on both of the carriers, and we can just pull that snowboard all the way over to us. So now I have complete access to the other side of the carrier. This feature is gonna decrease the time that you take to load and unload your skis.Now when you have all your gear loaded, it's as easy as just pushing the rack back to its original spot, and then close your carrier. As I close my carrier, you can notice that the grip-locked teeth right here, which are made out of rubber, mold to the surface of our skis and snowboards to account for their thickness and to help secure them. We also are gonna have three different latches on this system right here. That's gonna account for different thicknesses of our loads.If you have it fully loaded, and you've got some pretty thick skis and snowboards, and you can only get it to the first latch, that's completely fine. But I would advise it's in your best interest to see how far you can latch it. We'll go ahead and go to the second one. Right there, we see that it's pretty secure. Now if we try to go to the third latch, which is as far as it can go, it works, but it does bow our carrier just a bit, so we're just gonna take it off, and go back to the second one. And you can still see that our skis are very secure. I can't move them at all.We do have this lock right here, that we can push over, and lock our handle in place to whatever latch we have secured. And from there, we'll come to the other side, and take our included keys, and we'll lock it into place so that even our lock handle cannot be accessed. They've also engineered the hinge on the other side of the rack to adjust for the load so it doesn't put any extra pressure on the innermost gear that you have. You can see right here as I pull down on it, that it is adjustable for whatever load. As you can see with the carrier completely empty, our hinge has gone back to its original position. Now with the load that we have on our vehicle right now, we still are gonna have access to our truck without it making contact. However, you do wanna keep in mind that depending on the crossbar spread you have, or the length of your skis and snowboards, you may or may not have access to your truck, and also it just depends on the vehicle.Now whether the carrier is loaded or unloaded, it's gonna have a very low profile design, which is gonna add to the looks of your vehicle. It's gonna use four of these flip mounts, two for each carrier, to mount to the crossbar. It has a rubber-coated steel strap that comes under our crossbar, and mounts into this pivot lock. It's gonna fit your arrow bars, round bars, square bars, and most factory roof racks. When you're done, we do have this lock right here that uses the same key for the other lock as well.When you have all your straps secured, due to various roof slopes and crossbar types, you can adjust the carrier either way to make sure that it's level so that when you secure your skis and snowboards, you're gonna ensure that they're level and they're not pulling on one side. Then when you have that in your location that you want it, you just tighten down the bolt right here to make sure it's locked into place. Now if you would rather mount your grip ski to the T-slot on your crossbar, you can pick up the Kuat T-channel adaptor kit here at And that'll replace this bolt right here and the flip mounts with a T-slot adapter, so that you can mount it directly to your crossbar.Now from the top of our crossbar to the top of our carrier, we've added about 4-1/2" to the top of our vehicle. This is important to keep in mind for any low clearance situations such as parking in your garage. The metal outer shell is gonna be very durable and corrosion resistant. Now both the six-ski and the four-ski are gonna have a total weigh capacity of 165 pounds, but you do wanna be sure to double check with your vehicle's owner manual and the owner's manual of your roof rack to make sure that both can handle that weight.With that being said, that's gonna do it for our look at Kuat's line of Grip Ski and Snowboard Carriers.

Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Slide Out - 6 Pairs of Skis or 4 Boards - Pearl - GRR6P

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (17 Customer Reviews)

This stylish ski rack lets you carry up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards on your roof rack. It slides out from your roof for easy access, and it has large grip handles that let you easily open the rack even while wearing heavy winter gloves.


Super solid, like all things Kuat makes, and even a knucklehead like me was able to mount the ski racks in short order. Plus the Pearl White looks killer on my white 4Runner!


Great ski rack system. Rack is very robust, a high quality product.


Review from a similar Grip in Ski and Snowboard Racks

Eventhough we had a damaged packaging problem with missing parts, I will still give etrailer and my sales rep Joseph 5 stars for replacing rack with a new one in a very short amount of time. Things will happen but it is how the company take care of the problems quickly is how I rate them as well. The racks are excellent and although there is a lack of snow now, I know they will be great. Heavy duty racks that lock to the roof rails as well as lock the skis on as well. Can't beat Kuat products. They are made well and work well.


Review from a similar Grip in Ski and Snowboard Racks

This is a fantastic rack. Had it all last winter. Not only did it keep our skis secure, it looked great doing it - I got a lot of people asking about it when they saw me using it in the parking lot. The slide out feature is very handy once you get the hang of it.

We did encounter issues with the slide out trays getting stuck with ice several times (I'm in the cold and wet NE) but I was able to work them free. We also had locks freeze up to the point where you couldn't get the key into the bolt to lock/unlock, which was annoying. Kuat support was great in sending new lock bolts when this happened though. I think the locks might need some weatherproofing to account for rain/snow getting in and freezing up the components, then allowing corrosion to set in and seize everything up.

But no regrets! I have this and the Base rack for our bikes in the warmer months, so there's kuat on my vehicle all year round now.


Review from a similar Grip in Ski and Snowboard Racks

Thank you, Matthew (Rep), for your diligence in keeping me posted on my order. I
am grateful that this Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier came on a timely basis.
Although it is a Christmas gift and will not be opened until then, the tracking of this
package and the excellent email correspondence was exceptional. Can't wait to give this gift as all of the products seem to be good quality. I am waiting for two more items to arrive and will comment once their arrival is here. Thank you for keeping me posted each day on my purchases!!!!

Great product, awesome style

Review from a similar Grip in Ski and Snowboard Racks

Best purchase ever. I have wanted to get a name-brand ski rack ever since I was in Highschool 30 years ago. I had the option of buying a cheaper one but just didn't trust the quality. I am so glad I made the decision for this one. It is incredible. Best construction, strength, and ease of use I have ever seen.


Review from a similar Grip in Ski and Snowboard Racks

These were installed on a 2020 RAV4 Hybrid.

Clear instructions
Relatively quick and straightforward assembly and installation
Slide-out is handy on taller vehicles
Smooth, sturdy action on all hinges, latches, and slide-out
Quick removal after initial assembly and install

They take about 30 minutes to assemble out of the box (for a first-time roof rack purchaser). All tools (two hexes and lock keys) are included. I assembled mine at our dinner table, so there isn’t any grease that will get messy.

The instructions don’t show that you have to use the keys to unlock the different latches, so heads-up on that.

Installation on a new and taller vehicle took a little time so as to get them centered and not scratch the roof. I needed a boost (in height) to be able to tighten down the hex bolts that tightens the straps around the cross-bars. I was using the Toyota cross-bars on my vehicle, and they’re quite a bit smaller in diameter than the preset strap lengths on the Kuats, so it took me about another 30ish minutes to situate the racks and then tighten (with included hex key) the car and lock them down (with the included keys).

Following the ski trip, I unlocked the strap latch locks, lifted the racks off, and put them on a shelf. Removal time was about 3 minutes, and the straps are pre-sized for our next trip.

I prefer to spend a little more for nicer stuff up front that works well and is sturdy and thoughtfully engineered. These racks do all the things you want them to without any real gotchas. While these are a bit more expensive than other alternatives, these are a worthwhile long-term investment for me.

  • Ski and Snowboard Carrier That Will Fit Wide Crossbars
    There are some options for ski and snowboard carriers that fit around wide crossbars, but there is not a way to fit the Thule SnowPack # TH7326 to wide crossbars as there isn't mounting hardware with a longer strap. If your current carrier won't fit the best option is another carrier, and a great one with a similar easy-to-use mounting system is the Kuat Grip. The Grip fits around crossbars up to 4-1/4" wide (I strongly recommend measuring your crossbars to ensure they fit this width),...

  • Can Kuat Roof Rack Accessories be Installed on Thule Roof Rack Using T-Slot
    The Kuat roof rack accessories just use clamps but they also sit directly onto the crossbars so you would have the same amount of clearance whether they mounted in the T-Slot of Thule aero-style crossbars or not. For example, the Kuat Trio Roof Bike Rack, which comes in Gunmetal Gray # RU01 and Black and Polished Chrome # TR02, sits directly on the roof rack bars and then utilizes clamps that sit under the crossbars for the installation.
