The Universal Cargo Basket is a unique cargo carrier because it doesn't require any crossbars on your vehicle. This rack utilizes rubber feet and straps that connect to your car's door jams to hold itself in position. This roof basket is designed only for 4-door vehicles because there are 4 straps running off the rack - one for each door. Please note that this roof basket only works on "naked" roofs. Meaning, if you roof has any crossbars or side rails at all it cannot be used. It must be completely open like the car in the image.
As mentioned above, this rack is held in place by its rubber feet and the door straps. The rubber feet provide the vertical support of the basket and are there to prevent any scratching or sliding of the basket. The straps are adjustable in length to meet different vehicles sizes and are used to securely tie down the basket to your car. This universal roof basket is great if you're looking to expand your vehicles storage space, but don't want the hassle or expense of getting a whole crossbar rack system installed first. The lightweight yet rugged steel design makes it easy to add or remove from your vehicle. The steel has been powder coated black to provide an attractive and weather resistant finish.
Cargo baskets are one of the most versatile cargo maintenance and general purpose storage devices you can have for your vehicle. There is not an easier way to carry extra cargo and gear with you on a road trip than with a cargo basket. What makes a cargo basket so great is its shape - its effectively a big steel cage on top of your car! Carrying more gear is as simple as throwing it up into the basket and strapping it down with a tie down strap. Since almost all cargo baskets have a steel mesh basket or large side railing, using a tie down strap is trivial because there so many places to loop it through. There is no hassling with special clamps or single-purpose racks needed, a cargo basket is one size fits all. Another thing that most people don't realize about cargo baskets is that they can be used as crossbars to attach sport-specific racks to. As mentioned above, most cargo baskets have a steel side rail surrounding the basket. You can use this rail to attach rack pads or even a kayak roof rack so that you can transport surfboards, SUPs, kayaks, or whatever you need! A cargo basket really gives you the best of both worlds - a general purpose storage device and the ability to attach sport-specific racks.
I wish the rubber on the base was taller they kept popping off while I tried to adjust each strap for proper position.
