Review of Rhino Rack Vehicle Fishing Rod Racks RR572-43159


Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Rhino-Rack ski and fishing rod carrier for the pioneer platform racks. This convenient locking carrier transports two skis or four fishing rods on the side of your platform rack. It mounts at a 75 degree angle to free up space for additional gear on top of your platform. It also comes with standard clamps for installing this system directly to your roof rack crossbars.A few features I want to go over with you real quick that I really like about the product. We have the large push button releases, which let you easily open the carrier, even if you have gloves on. That's a really nice added benefit to it.

Also, this is spring loaded, so once you push the button, you can see how it springs to the open position, and you can load in your gear. It has indention's right here to really securely hold your fishing rods. And then it has the soft rubber molding which ensures excellent grip on your gear without scratching it or damaging it.The built in locks are located here on the ends of the unit. The built in locks secure your gear to the carrier. Keys are included.

We also have, when it comes to the construction, a nice, durable design. So this constructed of both aluminum and steel, and some plastic. So the durable construction is also corrosion resistant. It has a black powder coated finish over the steel and aluminum, and then that plastic is like a molded plastic with built in UV protection. So overall, it's rust and corrosion resistant.

It's very strong and durable, and it's going to maintain it's nice black color with the built in UV resistant materials that are used in the construction of the carrier.The carrying capacity, two pairs of skis or four fishing poles. This is designed for the Rhino-Rack pioneer platforms. It has a weight capacity of 26 pounds. I did take a measurement of the external link from edge to edge going this direction. We have a measurement of about 15 and 3/4 inches.

The internal link, that's the space available for loading stuff, it's about 9 and 13/16 to 10 inches. That's gonna do it for today's look at the Rhino-Rack ski and fishing rod carrier for the pioneer platform racks.

That unit is designed to work specifically for the rhino rack systems. You may be able to get it to fit in a T-slot but it is not recommended from the manufacturer. Have you considered something like this, Rhino-Rack Fishing Rod Carrier - Locking - 8 Fishing Rods # RR574F . It will fit on the standard crossbars: round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory.
