This bar performs as advertised, HOWEVER! if you are planning on using them with the hull-a-ports the saddles of the hull-a-ports have to sit very for forward on this bar in order to be level, the bolts supplied are a bit to short so be prepared to buy longer ones. The bolt on the back side comes very close to the bar and may scrape on it and cause damage to the bar if you dont cover the threads of the bolt with some plastic tubing or something. Rack Attack did not offer to fix this problem they just wanted to sell me longer bolts, emails to Thule were met without a responce.
