SportRack Groomer 8 Reviews
Markrated this item 3 out of 5 on 2/14/2014:
Somewhat disappointing, 1st unit showed up damaged, Full credit to the Rack Attack staff though for promptly addressing the issue and fast replacement. However the unit does not fit that well on my vehicle and required the sourcing of another set of longer 6mm bolts in order to clamp the rack onto the factory side rails of my vehicle. I had checked the fit on line and made notation when I placed the order on line, but I never received any information that it would not fit. Be Sure to verify the fit before you order or go ahead. After struggling with the thing for an hour and half not including the time to source the the hard to find bolts, it is finally on. Will see how it performs tomorrow.

It looks like no cross bars are needed is that correct? Are they thief proof? Is the rack easy to remove from car if snowboards are on them?Is this a good brand and do you have any other recommendations. My Honda CRV only has factory side rails, no crossbar.
The SportRack Aero BR53 Deluxe only locks the skis Or boards down. it does not lock to the vehicle. As long as you have the raised rail going from the front to the back of the vehicle they will mount up.

I would like to verify that the SportRack Aero BR53 Deluxe will work with my 2004 Explorer with factory raised side rails. I do not have crossbars. If so, do this unit come with everything I need or do I need to purchase two units?
Thank you for your email. Yes the BR53 will fit directly to the raised rails on your vehicle. It is a complete system so you only need to purchase one unit. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
