What is this thing?
This is a stainless steel, time-tested storage rack for holding your car or SUV's cargo box while it is not installed on your vehicle.
Isn't the cargo box supposed to be on my car or SUV?
Yes and no. You should take off your car or SUV's cargo rooftop box when it is not in use because it could have a negative effect on your vehicle's gas mileage.
What benefit does the swivel function have?
The swivel design is a great feature of this rack, because when a rack protrudes 24" out from your wall, it can be quite an obstacle. The swivel function makes it a a cinch to stow the rack while you have your cargo rack installed on your vehicle's rooftop. You simply fold the rack flat against the wall and it won't take up any needed space.
Why do I need an a rack for my cargo box?
For convenience and to prolong the life of your cargo box. When most people take off their car's cargo box, they typically just toss the empty box on the floor somewhere or lean it up against the wall. This is a less than optimal solution for two reasons:
First, most cargo boxes are only designed to support themselves on the rails they would attach to on a roof rack. By laying the cargo box on its side, the plastic may become damaged or warped such that the cargo box may no longer install properly.
Second, the cargo box is a perfect storage shelf/container in itself, whether on your car's rooftop or not. So, why not use your cargo box as a storage shelf in your garage or shed when it is not in use on your car or SUV? This heavy duty rack allows you to mount your cargo box on the wall and use it like you would any other storage shelf - Awesome! Meanwhile, you get the added bonus of knowing that your gear AND your cargo box are properly stored and less prone to damage.
