The strap hooked on the bar and it goes around and through the cab compartment.

Overall, this is a good product constructed of quality materials and is offered at a good price. You can certainly find more sturdy racks out there, but you're going to pay significantly more.

I bought this rack to go over the cab of my F150 super crew cab and recently used it on a trip that involved about 700 miles of 80+ mph highway driving. I have a rack with 2 cross bars on my bed, but I needed the roof rack to keep the bows of the canoes from hitting the roof of the cab. This rack worked great with one canoe, but it was a bit tight getting two canoes on the rack. This is not a design problem, but is simply a function of the size of the product. The seller should consider offering a wider rack for larger trucks.

The construction is solid and works well for its intended purpose. Other reviewers who have commented that the rack is "cheap" or "flimsy" need to remember that this is a temporary rack, so you are giving up some quality for the convenience of being able to remove the rack in 30 seconds. And for the price, you can't find a better product. If you want something super solid, spend the $200+ and get a Yakima or Thule Rack. If you want something that you can install in seconds to carry your boats, this is an excellent product. You simply have to check the rack periodically to make sure nothing has come loose.

I always tinker with my gear, and I found a way to improve this product somewhat. First, the cross bar is in two pieces for ease of storage. The smaller diameter pipe is slightly smaller than the inside diameter of the larger pipe, so the rack has a tiny bit of play in it.

Bought two for 1500 crew cab. We also have rear hitch mounted rack. Carried 20 foot tubing 200 miles, no sweat.
Not a permanent rack, but decent for occasional.

I bought this with the extend a bed hitch, works ok. It would be better if had more grip on the roof, just make sure you tighten the strap as much as possible. Perfect for the occasional in-town haul, but a little scary on the interstate.

I use this rack to transport a 15' kayak on my Dakota. The black support feet are a firm yet pliable foam material that doesn't dent or scratch the roof. I use a home-made rack ,at the rear of the bed, made out of electrical uni-strut channel. The combination works well for kayaks/canoes and the occassional long lenghths of lumber. If you need to haul 50 pieces of 20' deck boards or other heavy materials on a regular basis,I would look at something more permanent. Overall,works great for the price.

By looking at this picture, it looks good, but I can't figure how it connect to the vehicle. When I received it, it's nothing but a bar and two pieces of shaped foam. I have a Chevy S-10 pick up and has no rain gutter. The strap hooked on the bar and it goes around and through the cab compartment. I had to tighten it so it won't move or slide. Closed the door and it push the door frame out just a little. Now the truck whistle at high speed. Then it started to put a small dent on both side of the roof of my truck when I tighten it to prevent the slippage, and I had to modified the S hook that slip into a hole on the bar so it wouldn't slide out. I had to thread the S hook and put a washer and a lock nut on the end of the hook. And when I carried lumber, it created a slight dent on the roof. I could have used a couple pieces of styrofoam and a broom stick and have the same result. A piece of garbage for $40+ . Hate it and now it is an expensive closet bar. Should have spent the money on a Thule set up.

Some sort of non-skid surface on the bottom would be helpful to keep it from sliding around until secured solidly,

I bought the Pro-Series HTEXT Truck Extension and the Darby Industries 968 Black Roof Turbo Rack to carry a large canoe on my truck. The Pro-series HTEXT Truck Extension works perfect for what I need and it will work for other issues I had with a short bed truck. I have a Ford F150 Supercrew 2002 and the Pro Series fits perfect and is the best price I found.

The Darby Industries 968 Back Roof Turbo Rack worked good, but the strap is really cheap, so I secured the canoe to my "oh Shiz" bars in the back seat, along with the strap that came with the Roof Rack. The Rack itself is sorta cheap as well, but it did the job. I used it to go 500 miles round trip and up to 85mph on the highway and it worked like a champ
