have no experience with this product but i saw it on ebay the other day...
again, have no experience with it, but i honestly think it would work fine. it looks to have a rubber gasket to protect the car, and IMO it wouldnt slide around. no diff then the big pizza del signs the drivers stick to their roof
Nice find but I would have all kinds of worry with this.. First scratching of the paint, sliding around on roof, coming off while driving.
I have the Yakima system on my car and no damage what so ever to the car...
Geez, that's how almost all roof racks worked before they started putting rails on cars. I built a cottage 100 miles away from home, lugging multiple sheets of plywood on an old rack with suction cup bases. Just wipe the roof and the rack bases before mounting and cinch it down tight, if you're worried about scratches.the strap-down system would make me nervous as a car owner. you likely have to tighten that strap quite a bit to keep the rack in place, or at the very least, keep it from jiggling around, and if you do, then you've got to worry about denting the roof and the door frames.
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.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.
Well since the car isn't your point, I would be willing to try it if I were you :thumbsup: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.
