Getting The Most Out Of Your Roof Racks And Accessories
If you’re planning to head out on the open road, it’s worth keeping a few of these handy tips in mind. That way, you’ll be able to keep your possessions secure. Make sure you:
Don’t Overload Your Rack
The manufacturer’s guidelines should state the weight limitations for your roof rack in NZ. Make sure that you comply with these and don’t carry any cargo that’s heavier than your rack’s weight restrictions. That’s because this could lead to drag and compromise your driving experience.
Drive Slower Than Normal
Most roof rack accessories have stipulated speed limits for their use. It’s important that you stay within them as aerodynamic drag increases with the speed of your vehicle. If you exceed the limits for your rack or its accessories, the force they’re subjected to could damage or even tear them off the vehicle entirely.
Remove The Rack If Not Using It
Roof racks always add weight to a vehicle, even if they use lightweight materials. For these reasons, it’s worth removing your roof rack if you’re not using it to transport gear or equipment.
That’s because it will consume extra fuel, making travelling more expensive. Many of the roof racks we have available in store are easy to remove and reattach as needed – just ask our team to help you select the best fit for your car.
Tie Down Large Cargo
Large, long items like kayaks and canoes can set up a lot of drag – sometimes enough that they could rip your roof rack off your car when travelling at motorway speed. That’s one reason why it’s important to tie down items you’re carrying on your roof rack.
Safety is the most important thing to consider and items that are improperly secured or not tied down to your vehicle might cause problems when you’re travelling, potentially hurting you, your passengers or other road users. If you are unsure about how secure your load is – DO NOT TRANSPORT IT. We can offer practical advice on tying down and securing loads, contact us if you have any questions.
