Review of the Inno Roof Rack on a 2016 Ford Escape


Today on this 2016 Ford Escape, we're going to be test-fitting Inno Aero Crossbar roof rack system consisting of part numbers INXB115-2, those would be the crossbars themselves, part number INXS200, those are going to be the flush feet for the Aero crossbars, and then part number INK628, which are going to be the clamps which hold the roof rack into place on your roof. As you can see, we already have the front one installed, measured out where it needs to be. We'll go ahead and show you how the rear one gets put into place. We have it partially assembled already. We'll go ahead and show you how it actually goes in. Right now the crossbar itself is turned upside down. We're going to slide out this piece here, taking our little bracket here, put that into place.

Then we'll slide that back in like so. Then we take our remaining foot. Take this portion here and placing it in this slot like so. We'll begin to push it out and we'll loosely tighten the Allen head screw here to hold it in place. Then we'll take our measuring tape here to make sure that the spread between the two feet is what it needs to be in accordance with the instructions, which that looks to be the right mark.

Go ahead and finish tightening that down. All right. With that held in place now, we're going to take our pads for our feet, and place those in. You'll see the two points here which will fit into these indentations, then these indentations which will go around the screws. Match them up, and push them in. Next, we'll take our actual clamps which are numbered right here. The instructions will tell you which ones are for the rear and which ones are for the front.

We'll go to our screw here, and undo it. Place the clamp. We'll loosely tighten this up just to hold the clamp in place for now. We'll do the same for the other side. Now we'll go ahead and open up our rear doors here, and we'll set our rear bar in place. The feet are labeled which side goes where, right and left.

We'll set them down for now, until we can get them spaced right where we need them. Here's the label here I was talking about earlier which indicates this is going to be on the right side of the vehicle. The way that we measured it for the front crossbar, is you measure from the center of the door jamb here to the center of the bar. We'll do that the same for the rear. You will find this on your instructions where it needs to be at. Still got a ways to move back. We'll do the same for the other side. Push that up just a hair. Double-check our measurement again on this side just to be sure. All right, now we can start tightening them down. We're going to snug it up real quick on both sides, making sure the clamps will make contact with our door jamb there, or door sill I should say. This tool does come with the kit, and hopefully you don't drop it like I did. Started there. Once we get them snug, we're going to go ahead and give them about five or six turns each side. Keep on doing this back and forth, until it's completely tightened down. With this tool, once it's completely tightened or torqued to specifications, you're going to hear a clicking sound when you turn it. Like that. All right. Our final step is we're going to put our covers on at the ends. Give it that nice finished look. These do come with locks. It's a nice bit of security to keep your roof rack on your vehicle. All right. There you have it for the Inno Aero crossbar roof rack system on our 2016 Ford Escape.
