Recommended Roof Rack And Lock For Ladder On 2016 Ford Escape  


I am looking for a system to rack mount an 8ft fold-able ladder to the roof of a 2016 Ford Escape. I would prefer something that is self locking/latching to secure the ladder to the mount and to prevent movement from of the ladder both side to side and front to back while in transit.


Expert Reply:

If you have the factory side rails on your 2016 Escape I recommend a roof rack like the Thule SquareBars. This roof rack features 53-inch square load bars, and has locks to secure the roof rack to the top of your vehicle. It has a 150-lb weight capacity. To order this roof rack you will need part # TH712400 and part # TH710401.

If you have no side rails on your roof, I recommend the Rhino Rack Square Bar Roof Rack. This roof rack installs in the fixed mounting points on the roof of your vehicle. This roof rack has a weight capacity of 165-lbs. For this roof rack you will need part # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA, and part # DK375. Locks are included with this roof rack.

We do not offer load stops for these roof racks but you can use a cable lock like part # e98891. This cable is 10-ft long and can be wrapped around your ladder to secure it to the roof rack.
