Using a Roof Rack the Right Way

If you are looking for an easy way to expand your cargo space, then adding a roof rack to the top of your vehicle can be a workable solution. Before setting off on your adventures, it is worth the time to learn how to install and load a roof rack correctly.

Make sure to check out the specs of the roof rack model you purchase so that it is compatible with your car or truck. The tracks of the roof rack should be fastened to the top of the car without screwing them on too tightly or not tight enough. The box that you load on top should not spill over either side of the rack. Secure the box tightly before trying to drive.

Many drivers remove the roof rack when they are not transporting cargo so that it does not weigh the vehicle down unnecessarily and use extra gas.
