How to avoid noise during travel?

Back to FAQ
The vast majority of users experience a quiet ride. Follow these tips to prevent noise during travel:

1 - Using a Protective Mat helps cushion and quiet the contact between the car top carrier and the roof.

2 - Keep a distance of at least 8" between the front of the carrier and the front end of the roof. This avoids the air turbulence at the front end of the roof.

3 - Fill the RoofBag carrier to capacity if possible. This preserves the aerodynamic shape of the carrier, which creates a more quiet ride.

4 - If the car top carrier is not full, avoid flapping noise by packing the carrier so that the outer surface is as smooth as possible. Hold down any loose carrier fabric with the straps.

5 - Taut straps sections in open air (as opposed to the sections that are in contact with the carrier) can hum, whistle, or vibrate. Adding a 1/2-turn or a 1-turn twist to the noisy segment of strap will stop the noise.

6 - Tie and tuck the free ends of straps to keep them from flapping.

7 - When fastening the straps, make sure they are as vertical as possible, to create a secure attachment and to avoid movement during travel. Follow the strap angle guidelines shown here: Strap Angles.

8 - On a curved roof, use a second pair of straps to secure the car top carrier. This keeps the front of the bag carrier from lifting and flapping.
