Roof rack question

Post by DH70 »

Hi everyone. I've got various roof racks at home, but they don't have the gutter type feet (clamps?). Does anyone know where one can buy those feet (or clamps, whatever it's called:) separately? Thanks.

I suspect they are not interchangeable. Thus, for a front runner rack, contact front runner etc.

Alternatively, any decent fabricator would be able to make up a set to match a particular rack, but where to find one in your area is a different question...

Graham, (Pathmaker on the forum) has a box of odd clamps and “feet” for various roofracks.
Skilpad, Shortie & Toro.
