What Can I Carry On Roof Racks??

Swags, kayaks, surfboards, fishing rods and the like are ideal items to carry on your roof racks. The amount of gear you can carry will vary according to the kind of roof racks you choose and your vehicle's carrying capacity.

Roof Racks FAQs

How to install roof racks

The method of installing roof racks will depend on whether or not your car or 4WD has existing crossbars. These raised rails are what the roof racks will connect to. Once crossbars are in place, installation is straightforward. Assemble the rack on the ground if assembly is required, then hoist it onto the crossbars and secure as per manufacturer's instructions.

What roof racks fit my car?

Nearly all cars and 4WDs will be able to accommodate roof racks. Just check your vehicle manual and the roof racks you plan on buying to make sure they're compatible before making a purchase.

How do I secure loads to my roof racks?

If you're wondering how to use roof racks, it's important to remember that the amount of gear you can carry varies according to the kind of roof racks you choose and your vehicle's carrying capacity. You'll also need to use tie down straps, preferably with adjustable buckles. Whether you want to know how to tie a kayak to roof racks or need to secure your tents sways, here are a few simple steps to follow:

  • Place your loads side by side and close together. If you're strapping bags to your roof racks, make sure bag straps are neatly tucked away to create a compact package.
  • Evenly balance your gear, making sure weight is distributed and that the ends extend beyond the cross bars by at least 20 cm.
  • Place the straps over the top of the load from one end of your vehicle to the other. Make sure the buckle remains accessible and there's enough room to tighten.
  • Loop the strap around the underside of the cross bar then toss it back over your load to meet the buckle. Loop again around the crossbar, then thread through the buckle and tighten.
  • Wrap the excess strap around the cross bar to shorten, and tie off to secure. Repeat this process for each bar.
  • Ensure your gear is secure by giving it a good shake. You should also check the load again after 10km, and at every roadside stop.
