I've only tested them but so far they seem like excellent transportation racks. They were easy to install on my Toyota Tacoma factory roof racks and they come with all the necessary hardware. I can't imagine Thule or Yakima offering a similar product for anywhere even close to $98.00. ACK is the best internet seller I've ever dealt with. Shipping was free and it was delivered in three days from TX to VA. I considered giving it only four stars because one of the t-knobs arrived stripped but I called ACK and they overnighted a replacement the same day! Look no further - you've found the best product and, more importantly, the best e-tailer.
Bought these to put on my AUDI car carrier. They did not work. The AUDI carrier is too thick for these to properly clasp. ACK was great about the return, but if you have an AUDI and the AUDI carrier, don't purchase these.
Quick and easy install. Quality parts. Good Price. What more can you want? 4 Stars only because I don't know about longevity yet.
These are good. But strongly recommend getting the Malone Pro-2 as they are more than worth the extra cost.
