How to Install the Rhino Rack Roof Rack on a 2020 Chevrolet Traverse


Hi, everyone, Adam, etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Rhino-Rack, roof rack system on our 2020 Chevrolet Traverse. So this is going to be a great addition to your Traverse. We could put a bunch of different accessories on here. If you're doing some summer activities like canoeing or kayaking, we have carriers for those. We have bike racks that we can put on top of here as well.

And also, maybe even just a rooftop cargo box. It's going to get a lot of your luggage from the inside of your vehicle out, giving your passengers a lot more space to move and relax whenever you're going on a vacation of some sort.So these are the 59 inch bars. So be sure to use our fit guide on our website to make sure you get the right roof rack system for your specific vehicle. These are going to be made of aluminum, giving you about 165 pounds of carrying capacity, but always check the owner's manual of your vehicle. Make sure your roof can handle that type of weight.

They come in a aluminum black powder coated finish, or we do have some silver bars available as well. And if we open up our cap here, you can see the C channel that we have, and this is going to be great for adding those other accessories you may have, but these also will work with those accessories that are going to wrap around the bars as well. These are pretty sturdy bars, and they're going to be able to get the job done. One other thing I would probably add is we do have some metal locking cores here @etrailer.com. They are sold separately, but if you want that added protection, which I suggest go ahead and grab some.So our towers here are going to be just one big assembly.

We don't have a cap on the end here. What tightens and loosens it, it's going to be a volt inside the underneath C slot there, but we will have to remove our cap to get those done. They will actually protect your bars as well. We do have a rubber insert on the bottom of here, so we don't have to worry about scratching our bars. It doesn't wrap all the way around, like some of those you may see, but I definitely think that this is going to be a really secure fit.

You just get to get it tightened down properly.So to get some measurements for you guys, we're going to go from the roof of our vehicle, to the bottom of our bar, and it's going to be about two and a quarter inches. We're going to go from the root to the very top of our bar, which is going to be three and a quarter inches. So I don't think we're going to have any issues having clearance issues with our sunroofs here. And also it is pretty easy to install, honestly. So let's just go ahead and show you guys how.So the first thing we want to do is install our feet. All we really need to do is just get to the underside of our bar here. And this little slot is going to slide into our track. So we want to make sure the outside of our foot is facing the outside of our bars. And slide that into that slot. And while you're down here might as well to spread apart, or you can do the same exact thing for the other side.So while we have our bars on our table here, we're going to loosen this bolt right down in there. What that's going to do, it's basically just to spread this out a little bit, just to make sure it's going to be wide enough for our bars. Loosen that up and spread that out. Do the same thing for the other side.So now with our bars into place, we want to make sure they're nice and even. If you have to grab a tape measure, you can go ahead and do that. It's what I usually do just to make sure I'm extremely accurate. Measure on both sides and we're good. Now with everything lined up properly, we're going to tighten this bolt that we loosened earlier. So once you get it decently tight, give it a good wiggle and make sure it's not going anywhere. And if it's not, we can go ahead and actually just put on our cap and lock it with the provided tool. And we're pretty much done, we just got to do it for the other side. Well everyone that's just about all you really need to know about the Rhino-Rack roof rack system on our 2020 Chevrolet Traverse.
