Can’t believe I almost went to dealership for this. We bought kayaks with no way of putting them on the car. I have a 2008 CRV and this was so simple to put on. I am going to have my husband check the bolts to make sure they are tight enough but I believe anyone can set this up safely and correctly. Highly recommend
Received in a few days and lined up perfectly. Seem strong. The only reason it didn't get a 5 is because the metal rail guides on the CRV were close to the mounting bolts so I had to 'modify the mounting plates to fit (knocked off one side of the inner guide molding). Once I did this, it fit perfectly. Have not loaded anything on it yet.
Very easy to install! They fit perfectly and look like they came with my Honda. Very strong!
I have been wanting a roof rack for quite a while. Honda was way over priced, $400 installed and I was not willing to spend that much. Ordered from ASG, received them in a few days. Very happy! Super easy to install and look great!
I can highly recommend this product. Delivered quickly easily installed and look great
Look and work fantastic! As others have mentioned, the instructions for installation were poorly written. Found the following below on the internet about how best to install. Really need to take the time to remove the paint from the factory studs on the vehicle. Here are those directions: The instructions still don't mention the eight phillips head screws and washers that are included, but the need for a torx wrench has been replaced with allen fittings and a supplied allen wrench. So the only tool you will need is a torque wrench or tighten the 'special nuts' an additional 90 degrees. Except for that minor inconvenience, the design and materials appear to be up to OEM standards so you can't beat it for the price. It CAN be installed by one person by exercising some care. Here is what you do with the extra screws and washers: NOTE: This series of steps begins AFTER you have cleaned the paint off the studs per the instructions. 1) Before mounting the rack to the roof of your CRV, arrange the bases and cross bars according to the labeling on each piece Front, Left, Right, etc. 2) Insert the cross bars, blunt edge forward, into the appropriate bases. 3) Attach the two small phillips head screws and washers on the underside of each cross bar and base, only SNUGLY TIGHTEN THE SCREWS into the cross bars so they can still move a little but only if gently forced as you may need to do a little adjusting in the next step BEFORE fully tightening these screws. 4) Place the racks over the exposed factory studs. NOTE: You may have to move the cross bars in or out of the bases to get a proper, centered fit overs the studs. 5) If you 'snugly' secured the eight phillips head screws, then when you remove the racks the cross bar's position in the base will be maintained and you can now tighten the eight phillips head screws! 6) Once you have tightened the eight phillips head screws in their proper position ensuring the correct fit you can continue with the directions... NOTE: Make sure that the rubber piece placed between the metal base and the roof of the CRV is properly positioned small rubber ****** must protrude through the hole in the base. NOTE: Make sure the outer edge of the plastic base cover fits within the raised edges of the rubber piece at the bottom or just meets that raised edge for a nice clean look. IMPORTANT: It's a good idea to apply a drop of 'Blue Locktite' to all the threaded fittings to keep them from vibrating loose once you're on the road! Hope this helps!
Racks shipped and were received in 3 days. The installation was rather easy and the rails look great. The instructions do not mention that the racks are marked left and right. It is important to perform step #2 in the directions to clean off the paint from mounting studs. One of the special nuts stripped and one of them was too big for the mounting stud. I emailed ASG Auto customer service on Sunday. They replied first thing on Monday morning and I received replacements three days later. EXCELLENT customer service
excellent value over having dealer install these bars. Sturdy and quiet. Exactly what I was looking for and looks like they belong on the car.
Ridiculously easy to install, great quality, quiet on the interstate. Excellent value.
The cross bars worked great on my 2010 Honda crv.
