I was finally able to free up some room in my Jeep. I never felt comfortable putting my boards on my roof rack in the past. I did not feel they were going to be secure enough, so I would just pile them in the back with my bags and hope that my passengers would not bump their heads on them. Once I got the Thule Universal Flat Top Ski and Snow Board Carrier, no more head bumping. The carrier works great. Easy to load, and my boards are locked in very securely.
