My worry is that they discontinued this technology and no longer make it. WHY???? My cb antenna had a magnetic mount and it did scratch the paint on my car way back in the day.
I think if price is the issue the OP'er may want to try this, it was a good find.

More expensive but mine has never caused any damage to my car

I've had a Yakima rack system that was properly (or maybe not) shift on me. I was afraid I might break the latches at that point, but it still shifted and ended up putting a few hairline scratches on my roof. It also whistled like mad if I go over 130km/h.


I dunno if I'd trust that magnetic system.

I pm'ed the op.

I would look into thule roof racks. Thule-Base Racks, Roof Boxes, Bike Carriers, Cargo Carriers, Ski Carriers, Watersports, Snow Sports, Luggage Bags & Cases, Trailers, Towbars
They make universal roof racks for almost every model of car.

Ya mine whistles like crazy and worse with the boards on. I have no other option my car is small and I can't fit passengers and equip in the car. Small price to pay for riding I guess.

You also need to have the dimensions exact. Mine did shift 2x till I got it adjusted exactly. Never marred up the car nor scratched it even when it moved. Been solid, reliable rack system for me.

You think you could put two of those magnetic things on your car. I need to carry four boards. I don't give a damn about my car either so don't tell me how it's going to scratch my car or dent it or anything. My car is solely for heading to my hill.

Well since the car isn't your point, I would be willing to try it if I were you

Not sure I think the bindings my interfere, 3 maybe: 2 facing outward and then 1 in the center???

Thanks this is the kind of stuff I am looking for. With this I can get a used board carrier from CL or ebay. I also found this if somebody else is looking. I just don't know how much it is. I am not worried about scratching or denting my car, its already damaged.
