Hooks for Straps on Older Sears X-Cargo Rooftop Carrier

Question:

My older model Sears X-Cargo roof carrier has hooks on the ends of the straps that do not fit well on the frame of either of my two Mazda3s. I need hooks that are just in an L shape, instead of a J shape, so the door will close tight. What would be your best match? Thanks.

Helpful Expert Reply:

The best option which may work for replacing the hooks on your older Sears X-Cargo rooftop car carrier are the Replacement Car Clips for Rightline Gear Rooftop Cargo Bags # RL100600 (Quantity of 4) or # RL100605 (Quantity of 2).

These are rubber-coated steel and do not have the lip like the hooks in your photo; these are by far the best option for you.

Question:

This is a follow-up to a question answered today by Kyle S. about replacement clips for tie down straps for my car carrier. Kyle, Im wondering whether parts RG8890248 or Y90214 might fit better than part RL100600? It looks like the bike clips have a little more of an L shape and might provide a better fit in the door frame. Would they be suitable for a car carrier? Thanks.

The Replacement Side Lower Strap for Rhode Gear Trunk Mounted Bike Racks # RG8890248 and Replacement Upper Strap for Yakima Quickback 2 and 3 Bike Carriers # Y90214 you mentioned are meant for bike racks so I wouldn't be able to definitively say they will work for a cargo box.

It is likely that both will be fine, but I still like the Rightline Gear Rooftop Cargo Bags # RL100600 (Quantity of 4) or # RL100605 (Quantity of 2) and think these are the best option for a potential solution.
