Yakima FatCat 6 Reviews

This is an awesome ski rack! I have a 2005 Yukon Denali with a factory roof rack. I only have about 7 inches of clearance going into my garage, so I needed to buy to lowest profile ski rack, so I wouldn’t have to remove it to park in my garage. This FatCat 6 is only about 4 inches above my factory crossbars, so no problem getting into my garage. This rack is really stylish and low profile, almost looks like a police light bar... Installation was pretty easy, I have read a lot of negative reviews complaining that the installation is overly complex. This may be true, but the reason behind the more complex installation is to prevent theft of the rack. Once installed, there are no exposed screws, everything is hidden. To make this possible, there is a cover piece that attaches to the bottom of the actual rack, so you need to rotate the rack forward to tighten the back screw, then rotate it back to tighten the front screw. Then once the universal support is tight, you center the rack above the supports, then tighten a screw from inside the rack. Don't let these negative reviews scare you away from this awesome rack! It probably took me 15-20 minutes to install this, including centering, installing locks, etc. This rack has 29.5 inches of usable rubber to hold your skis or snowboards! Most other 6 ski racks only have 22.5 inches of rubber. If you have some newer fat skis, you need as much rubber as possible. This is the widest rack out there! Get it and you won't be sorry!

Best ski/snowboard rack I have used to date. Carries 4 fat snowboards with ease, or a couple of boards with some fat twins that my skier buddies use.
