Installation

If you don't have a car that came with a roof rack, then the numero uno priority of selecting a roof rack is to make sure it fits your car properly. Every rack has attachment points where it hooks onto the car, and if the points don't line up with the shape of your car's roof, that's big time bad news. At the very least, it will mess up your paint, and at the worst, it could take a dive off your vehicle at 70 miles per hour. For best results, consult a professional.
