Kuat Switch 4 Ski Carrier

The Kuat Switch 4 lets you carry 4 pairs of large skis or 2 snowboards on your vehicle's roof rack. It's easy to remove, but with the foldable design you may want to leave it on your vehicle all season long. It also includes locks to secure your gear to the Switch.

Folding Design

Kuat Switch Folding Design

Unlike traditional ski carriers, the Kuat Switch can be folded down when you aren't carrying skis or snowboards to reduce wind noise and drag. Simply pull the release lever on each holder and lower them into position.

Large Push Buttons

Kuat Switch Push Button Access

The carrier has oversized push buttons on the end caps that let you quickly open the arms to access gear. Simply push up on each tab to open the cradle and load your gear.

Flexible Rubber Blades

Kuat Switch Rubber Blades

The Switch holds your gear between a pair of rubber blades. They grip your gear tight to keep it in place, but are flexible enough to prevent scratches and scuffs durings transport.

Security for Your Skis

Kuat Switch One Key Security

The Switch comes equipped with built-in locks to deter theft of your gear. The arms lock in 2 positions to secure your skis to the carrier. They lock fully closed to accommodate thin skis and they lock slighly more open to accommodate thicker snowboards. Includes 2 keys.

Easy Tool-Free Installation

Kuat Switch Flip mounts

The carrier clamps to most crossbars with stainless steel straps. Simply run a strap beneath the crossbar and hook it into the bracket on the opposite side of the mount. Then, use the included Allen key to tighten the straps in place.The straps have a protective rubber coating to protect your crossbars from scratches and scuffs.

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (20 Customer Reviews)

Transport large skis and snowboards on your roof rack with this convenient carrier. Folds down when not in use to limit wind noise and drag. Built-in locks deter theft of gear.


These are very easy to install and obviously high quality - just need to really loosen the part that hooks over the crossbar a lot to get it to unhook. I went on a fast highway trip yesterday and there was no noise or anything to indicate I even had a ski rack on my car.


It worked well and held 4 pairs of skis. Easy to assemble.


Item thoroughly described and matched perfectly upon arrival. The universal mounts hug perfectly and easily around aero bars. My favorite is it folds down as described when not in use which creates a much more aero profile until next use. Fast shipping!


This rack is a 5 star no brainer. Its gone through 2 seasons of getting used 7 days a week. -15 degrees to road salt to kids slapping it open, it has not malfunctioned once. Rarely used, but the fold down feature definitely reduces noise, and looks good too. The bar mount clings to any shape bar and is so easy, it takes less than a minute to remove for a skinless road trip.




Excellent ski rack. I purchased because I wanted absolutely no noise. This thing is super quiet went flipped up or down. Love the looks of it flipped down. Absolutely no complaints. Easy to use and set up.


Been a great purchase. Fits 4 pairs of skis and a snowboard with room to spare. Could probably fit 2 boards and 3 pairs of skis easy.


Arrived fast, easy to install on my 2021 Toyota Rav4 Limited. Love that it folds down when not in use. Haven't been to the mountain yet but looking forward to putting it to use. Save the box for storage - came with nice foam ends to protect it.


High value product, works well, great p urchase.


For the price and size, this is a great rack. The only issue I’ve had is that the locks often jam, and I have to finagle the key around until the key hole eventually sits right and allows the key in.


easy to install and remove, looks good and functions well. Economical and I am very happy with performance.

  • How Far Apart Are the Mounting Feet on the Kuat Switch 4 Ski Carrier
    The Kuat Switch 4 # KU94FR has 14-7/8" between the mounting feet and the overall length is 26"; you will be able to use this rack without any issues, you just may have a slight bit of overhang on one side since it sounds like you might be mounting it in tandem with another accessory.

  • Can the Kuat Switch 4 # KU94FR Be Opened from Either End of the Carrier?
    I have an answer for you. Unfortunately, I confirmed with Kuat that the Kuat Switch 4 Ski and Snowboard Carrier # KU94FR can only be opened from the side that has the locking mechanism. In addition, all of our other Ski and Snowboard carriers can only be opened from a single side.

  • Could Inno Gravity Ski/Board Carrier Carry 2 Pairs of Skis and Snowboard
    With the Inno Gravity carrier part # INA952 we were able to put one pair of skis and one snowboard on it pretty easily. This is due to it's usable pad length of 14-5/8 inches. I don't believe you'd be able to fit two pairs of skis with a board you might measure the widths of what you have to check this. For something similar that does have the needed width you would want the Kuat Switch part # KU94FR and you'd be able to carry 2 pairs of skis and a board.

  • Ski Carrier Recommendation for 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon with Raised Side Rails
    At one point there were ski carriers that fit vehicles with raised side rails directly but at this time there are only options that fit to crossbars like the Malone bars part # MPG216 that you referenced. With that rack installed you'd be able to install a carrier like the Kuat Switch # KU94FR.

  • Recommended Ski Carrier for Werner Ladder Rack
    I do have an option for you but the only ski carrier option we offer for the Werner Ladder Rack due to the large crossbar size is the Kuat Switch 4 Ski and Snowboard Carrier part # KU94FR which can hook around bars up to 4-1/4" wide x 2" tall.

  • Ski and Snowboard Carrier Recommendation for 2 Pairs of Skis and 2 Boards
    You would be able to carry 1 board and 2 skis with the Kuat Switch 4 Ski and Snowboard Carrier # KU94FR, so since you're wanting to carry 2 pairs of skis and 2 boards I recommend checking out the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier # GRR6G instead as it can carry up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 boards. This larger carrier will not only be able to carry both pairs of skis and 2 boards, but it also has the ability to slide out for easier loading of your equipment. I have attached some review...

  • Roof Rack For 2017 Lexus IS 300 For Ski & Snowboard Carrier
    To carry snowboards on your 2017 Lexus IS 300, you will need a roof rack, as there isn't a standalone carrier just for a '17 IS 300. This will work for the 4-door sedan models, so if that's what your 2017 Lexus IS 300 is, I recommend a roof rack from Yakima: - Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 - Towers # Y28TR - Fit Kit # Y06159 & # Y06175 This rack will allow you to put on a snowboard rack for your Lexus, and I recommend an option from Kuat: - 4 Pairs of Skis or 2 Boards: Kuat...

  • Does Kuat Switch Ski Rack Lock to Prevent Theft
    Correct, there is not a locking deterrent to your roof rack for the Kuat Switch 4 Ski and Snowboard Carrier - 4 Pairs of Skis or 2 Boards # KU94FR. The Switch does have a lock for the skis/boards as they are in the carrier, but not for the rack itself. This does fit your Malone aero roof rack, but if you want a ski carrier that locks to your roof rack, you would need either the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier # GRR4B or Thule SnowPack Ski and Snowboard Carrier # TH7324. Like the Switch,...

  • Ski and Snowboard Carrier for 2023 Gladiator With TruXedo Elevate Ladder Rack
    For a ski/snowboard carrier that will fit the # TX58NV on your 2023 Gladiator I recommend the Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier # RR574. However, this won't be able to clamp on so you will need to use the T-slot channels on top for mounting. The carrier can handle 4 pairs of skis, 2 snowboards, or fishing poles. It has a 53 lb capacity, and an internal length of 19-11/16". It also comes with locks to keep your skis/boards secure and a 5-year warranty. If you would rather have a carrier...

  • Parts Needed to Mount Ski and Snowboard Carrier on 2009 Infiniti G37x
    In order to carry skis or snowboards using a rack like the Thule SnowPack Ski and Snowboard Carrier - 6 Skis or 4 Boards - Black # TH7326B, you will need a roof rack system since these do not mount to naked roofs. If you've got a factory roof rack system, the # TH7326B, # TH7325 and Kuat Switch 4 Ski and Snowboard Carrier - 4 Pairs of Skis or 2 Boards # KU94FR are designed to fit on factory roof rack crossbars, so they would all work without any additional parts. If you don't have a roof...

  • Cost-Effective Roof Rack and 4 Snowboard Carrier Recommendation for a 2019 Hyundai Sonata
    For your application I recommend using the Rhino-Rack Carrier # RR576 because it can hold up to 4 boards and is one of the more cost-effective carriers that we have. I have attached a review video for you to check out. When it comes to the correct roof rack it depends on whether your 2019 Hyundai Sonata has a Panoramic glass roof or not. Here are the roof rack options I recommend: With Panoramic Sunroof 50" Long CoreBar Crossbars - # Y00421 BaseLine Towers - # Y28TR Fit Kits - # Y06110...
