Works awesome for haulin my surfboard. The strap pops in to carry a board and pops out so you can keep it in your trunk when your not carrying and you dont have a strap flapping in the wind. The posts are rubber and hug the side and bottom as well as keep the strap high so you can tighten down with NO pressure dings from the bar or strap!! Very nice. I have a Thule rack and the fit is perfect. Still have room for two bike racks.
