Is Rivet Gun Required to Install Rhino-Rack RT-Style Roof Rack Tracks RRRTS01


I have a question about the rhino rack rt style tracks, can an ordinary rivet gun be used to install these? Im trying to imagine the rivet gun fitting through the crack in the track and it seems like there may not be room for the gun to get flush with the bottom of the track. Thank you

Yes, a rivet gun is required to install the Rhino-Rack RT-Style Roof Rack Tracks # RRRTS01 to your vehicle with a naked roof such as your 2009 Legacy, or to a camper shell or hard tonneau cover. The kit includes the stainless steel pop rivets.

We recommend using a silicone sealant after track installation to provide protection against entry of water and dirt. You can use clear or tinted 100% silicone caulk available at hardware stores or the Loctite gasket maker we offer: part # LT37467 in black, part # LT37464 in grey or part # LT37466 in copper-color.

These tracks can be used with Rhino-Rack leg kits like # RRRLT600 and vortex aero bars like # RRVA118B-2.
