Do I need to buy extra straps?

Back to FAQ
The two straps that come with each rooftop carrier are sufficient to hold the carrier securely. However, an extra set of straps can add stability and quietness to an installation.

We recommend extra straps whenever there is room to install them. For example on cars with side rails, 4 straps can be installed side-to-side, parallel to each other.

On cars with side rails and cross bars, 2 straps can go on the side rails, and another 2 on the cross bars.

Cars with no rack can also benefit from 3 or 4 side-to-side straps, especially on a curved roof, or when using a roof top carrier size 15 on a sedan.

Installations through the rear gate on vans, SUVs or coupes, may require lengthening the straps, which can be accomplished by ordering extra straps and splicing them together.
