How to Use a Roof Rack

Roof racks are present on most types of vehicles and are useful for transporting additional items or sporting equipment while on the road. The racks are easy to use, whether you need to bring along a kayak or a few extra suitcases.

You'll need to attach the box or container when it's empty to ensure it's easy to lift onto the vehicle without getting injured. Get the help of another person to avoid accidents due to the weight and size of the item. The container should be measured in advance to ensure it can fit onto the roof without hanging over the windshield. Use at least four straps to secure it from the sides and from the front to the back.

Tighten the cam-buckle straps after loading everything into the box. Kayaks or canoes must be tied down from the front to the back of the car and not just on the roof rack.
