  • Can the SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier Be Used for Fishing Poles
  • Yes, the SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier part # 298-SK2420 will work with both snowboards/skis and I don't see an issue with fishing poles either. The design is very similar to that of the Rhino-Rack Fishing Rod Carrier part # RR574F which is designed specifically for fishing poles so I don't see any issue. The fit may be a bit tighter for the Rhino-Rack option is all.

  • Clearance Between Skis and Roof with Thule Snowpack Ski Carrier
  • There are different carriers within the Thule Snowpack series (# TH732508, # TH7326, # TH7325, # TH7324 etc.) so I'll assume you mean the Thule SnowPack Ski and Snowboard Carrier # TH7326B. This is the carrier that can hold up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards. When we measured it with snowboards mounted, we found it was 3-3/8" from the snowboard to the top of the crossbars. This measurement is with the clamp style. If you use the T-track mounting system, it comes with spacer...

  • Distance Between Mounting Feet of Thule SnowPack Ski Carrier
  • I measured the Thule SnowPack Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Silver # TH7326 and Black # TH7326B for you and found that the distance between the T-slot mounting points was approximately 24 inches. I found that the distance from the edge of the rack to the furthest T-slot mounting point was approximately 26-1/2 inches. Overall, the rack measures 34-1/4 inches. I have added links to video reviews of the SnowPack for you to check out as well.

  • Availability of Replacement Top Mounting Clip for Thule Universal Flat Top Carrier 91725
  • I do have an alternative solution for you to carry your skis with a Thule carrier, but unfortunately just as you stated, the top mounting bracket part of your Flat Top Ski Carrier 91725 isn't replaceable. If you still prefer to use a Thule ski carrier then we have the SnowPack # TH7326 which is the upgraded version. This carrier does have replacement mounting kit # 7521241001 which is both the top and bottom should you ever need to replace it.

  • How to Carry Fishing Rods on Roof of 2015 Subaru Crosstrek
  • The Rhino-Rack Ski and Fishing Rod Holder # RR572 is a great way to carry Skis and Fishing Rods. I like that Rhino-Rack has several different sizes available to fit your needs to how many skis or rods you need to carry. The mounting system will attach to the Crosstrek's cross bars whether they are factory or aftermarket aero, square or round bars. The included locking feature makes this one stand out compared to others available. If your son ever plans to carry a snowboard you might...

  • Will Thule Snowsport Ski And Snowboard Carrier TH32WV Fit Roof Rack On 2020 Subaru Outback?
  • The Thule Snowsport Ski and Snowboard Carrier - 6 Pairs of Skis or 4 Boards # TH32WV has been confirmed to fit the standard factory roof rack for the Subaru Outback. So if your 2020 roof rack is the same style as seen in the attached demonstration video then it will fit; but since you have the limited trim level you may have a different roof rack setup. I recommend measuring the width of your crossbars to verify compatibility. If the crossbars are less than 4-1/4" wide then this carrier...

  • Hitch Mounted Snowboard and Bike Rack Solution for 2021 Tesla Model Y
  • The solution that is the closest to what you mentioned would be the Yakima Hitchski part # Y02418 which is a board carrier that can carry up to 2 boards that is designed to attach to hanging bike racks like the Yakima Ridgeback part # Y02458. There is not a 4-bike platform rack that can carry snowboards as well. If you were in need of a hitch for your 2021 Tesla Model Y the Draw Tite hitch part # DT58MR is a fit and would be a great option.

  • Fit of Yakima Y02418 HitchSki Ski/Snowboard Carrier on Rola TX-104 59401 Bike Carrier
  • The snowboards can indeed be stacked atop each other so that there's two boards stowed on each side for a total of 4, no need to stow them side-by-side (depending on their width, they'd likely not fit side-by-side). The Yakima # Y02418 HitchSki will be compatible with the Rola # 59401 TX-104 bike rack, but you will need to loosen the bolt holding the rear most cradle in place and move the cradle slightly, but that's easily done.

  • Will the SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier Mount on a 2019 GMC Acadia
  • Yes! The great thing about SeaSucker products like the SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Vacuum Cup Mounted - 8 Skis or 4 Snowboards # 298-SK2420 is that they're designed to work as a universal installation carrier; you can put these things on just about anything with a roof, including your 2019 GMC Acadia. These are going to work great on your Acadia and you can remove them easily when they're not being used, so it's actually a much better alternative to a full on roof rack kit. I've...

If your 2018 Volvo V60 Cross Country comes with any OEM or aftermarket roof racks that have a crossbar thicker than 3-3/4" than this ski and snowboard carrier will not work.

  • Will Rhino Rack RR576 Ski/Snowboard Carrier fit on their RMCB02 Roof Cargo Basket
  • The Rhino Rack # RMCB02 is a nice product, but unfortunately it lacks the crossbars necessary to mount a ski/snowboard carrier like the # RR576. However, the good news is that we do have a cargo basket from Yakima that would work perfectly for you. Take a look at the # Y07139 OffGrid cargo basket. The basket measures 53 x 49 inches, has a 165 lb weight capacity and features two crossbars that would accommodate the Rhino Rack # RR576 ski/snowboard carriers with ease. Yakima offers the...

  • Looking for Ski/Snowboard Carrier With Adjustable Width Mounting Feet
  • The inside to inside spacing between the mounting brackets of the # RKY1481 Ski/Snowboard Carrier is 14 inches, and the outside to outside spacing is 17-1/2. The brackets are 1-3/4 inches wide and the mounting feet aren't adjustable. You can see these dimensions in the provided photo. I'm not aware of any ski/board carriers that have adjustable-width mounting brackets. Because they're meant to be mounted on roof racks, I guess the manufacturers don't view that as a necessary feature.

  • Simple and Affordable Options to Carry 6 Skis on a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • We have a variety of options to help you set up a 6-ski carrier on your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee, with and without crossbars. Since the 2019 Grand Cherokee comes in a variety of flush-rail systems, I'll start with what's referred to as the "matte black" rails. These are small, black, plastic rails that do not have a mounting slot in them. With these rails, I recommend getting the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars, part # RRVA137S-2. These crossbars are not difficult to install, but are still...

  • Snowboard Carrier For 2020 Subaru WRX Without Roof Rack
  • I have the perfect snowboard carrier option for you with the SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Vacuum Cup Mounted part # 298-SK2425. This carrier will carry 2 snowboards or 2 sets of skis with poles. The carrier does not require a roof rack because it suctions to the roof of the Subaru with really strong vacuum cups. I know it seems like the carrier wouldn't stay on the roof but the cups have a pull strength of 210 lbs per cup. When SeaSucker was here they demonstrated how strong the...

  • Comparing the Different SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carriers
  • We have two versions of the SeaSucker ski and snowboard carriers. One is the padded clamp style that you referenced, part # 298-SK2420. It can carry 8 skis or 4 snowboards. The second is a strap-secured, slotted carrier, part # 298-SK2425. It can carry 2 pairs of skis and poles or 2 snowboards. I recommend the clamp style that you referenced since it's very easy to use and carries more. I've linked to a video review of it below.

  • Will the SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier Work On a 2014 Acura MDX
  • I do have an option to carry skis and snowboards but the SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier part # 298-SK2420 won't be a good option for a 2014 Acura MDX because of the ridges. Instead, you will need to install a roof rack and then carrier like the Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier part # RR576. I have attached a full list of roof rack options below which vary by roof type (bare or flush side rails).

  • Will Yakima FreshTrack Fit On Accessory Bars On Rola Atlas Roof Cargo Basket
  • The Yakima FreshTrack part # Y03092 fits round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars that are less then 3-7/16" wide x 1-3/4" tall so it should fit the square bars of your Atlas Cargo Basket part # 59043. The minimum cross bar height that the FreshTrack will fit is 5/8" so as long as the bars are taller than 5/8" and not over 3-7/16" on your particular basket you won't have any issues with fit.

  • Is There a Way to Switch the Mounting Hardware on a Thule 575 Snowboard Carrier
  • I may have a solution for you, but the Thule 575 snowboard carrier you've got has a very specific mounting style, and is only compatible with square load bars; unfortunately you won't be able to switch out the mounting hardware to make them work with Aero bars. The hardware that you've got is riveted into the carrier, so there is not a way to remove it, as was common on this line of carriers. For this reason you'll need a new snowboard carrier that is compatible with aero bars like the...

  • Will the Thule Snowsport Fit on Subaru Factory Crossbars on a 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Yes. The Thule Snowsport Ski and Snowboard Carrier - 6 Pairs of Skis or 4 Boards # TH32WV is designed to fit on most aftermarket and factory crossbars no more than 4-1/4" wide, so it should fit the factory bars on your 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon without issues. We've seen a lot of customers use them on the Subaru factory bars in the past but you can measure the width to be sure and give you some added peace of mind before purchasing.

If it is tilting, I recommend repositioning it and tightening it in place where it is level for best carrying. It will work fine on the round bars of your Adventure Rack Basket if they are similar to the 1-1/8 inch diameter of a roof rack crossbar. Depending on the diameter of your bar, it is sometimes difficult to get the clamps tight enough without damaging them. If you need extra...

If you take a look at the diagram on the product page you can see the T-slot measurements the Gravity fits so you will want to verify the size of the T-slot on your Whispbar with a quick measurement.

I've linked to a video review of this carrier for you to look at.

  • Does the Kuat Grip T-Channel Mounting Kit Keep You From Using The Pitch Adjustment Feature?
  • You will loose the adjustable pitch feature on the Kuat Grip # GRR4B when using the T-Channel Mount Kit # GRDMK because the adjustable pitch happens on the clamping feet only. With that being said, unless you're worried about the clearance between your roof and the skis/snowboard or want to mount to the T-Channels, you won't need to use the T-Channel kit. While the Kuat Grip is 4-1/2" tall and the SnowPack # TH7326 is 3-1/2" tall, I don't think that you'll find a noticeable difference in...

  • Can the Straps on the Thule SnowPack Ski Carrier be Easily Cut
  • The straps on the Thule SnowPack ski carrier # TH7326 are called the Speed-Link system.

I have included a link to a video review of this carrier.

  • For your application I recommend using the Yakima FatCat EVO, Black # Y03096, over the Thule SnowPack, Black # TH7326B or Silver # TH7326, because the FatCat EVO has a piece of rubber on the top of the mounting feet to help keep it in place while the SnowPack is only a plastic piece. With that being said, most (if not all) ski carriers will rotate some on round bars when the skis aren't installed. The rubber piece on the FatCat EVO will help minimize the movement but unfortunately that...

  • Improvements Included in the FatCat 6 EVO beyond the FatCat 6
  • There's a few notable improvements for the FatCat6 EVO, part # Y03097 over the previous version of the FatCat 6.

It fits AeroBars sized up to 3.5 inches wide by 1.75 inches tall, and didn't fit those in the previous version. The EVO also includes additional adapters for round and square bars,...

  • Rhino-Rack vs Yakima FatCat4 Snowboard/Ski Rack Comparison
  • Yakima is a top of the line brand that offers great racks at a price that reflects the quality. The Rhino Rack brand on the other hand comes in a much lower price with only a marginal difference in quality to be totally honest. In my opinion the Rhino Rack carriers and racks are the best value in most cases and what I normally recommend. That being said the Ski Rack part # RR574 is a great value, BUT it does require a tool to tighten the clamps to your crossbars and the Yakima part...

  • Recommended Way to Transport Fishing Rods
