I installed Thule tracks on my naked roof Subaru and then installed the Tracker II feet on the TK1 kits. Check with Thule to find out what kit you need for your rack. They are sold separately and that adds about thirty bucks to the cost. The Tracker II feet are a real no-brainer to install. Simply drop them onto the TK bases and you're done. To move the feet back and forth in the tracks, you need to remove the feet and use a supplied hex tool to slide the TK bases in the tracks. Get it? The real beauty of this system is the one button installation/removal. Once the foot adapters are installed in the tracks simply push the lock button (unlocked, of course) and lift the entire rack off your car. Unlocked, I can install or remove my rack with whatever accessories are attached, in less than 20 seconds. One caveat--the feet have a bit of wiggle in them if there's no load, but are rock solid when load is applied. All in all, a very nice design and worth the money. If you change cars, you can use it on most other rigs with a track system, but will probably have to buy a different TK base. Always check Thule's fit guide and you'll be fine.

The best compromise in a ski/board pant that I've seen, and I've worked in outdoor retail for many years. These pants beat the big names by a mile. The North Face, Burton, Columbia--they all cost the same or more, but for a 10k waterproof/10g breathable pant, I believe this pant is a much better value. Durability is good--I'm a skier, not a boarder, and the cuffs are tuff enough to ward off cuts from ski edges. Waterproofing is excellent--sitting on a wet Oregon chairlift for 15 minutes is the true test of a pant. Chugging hard up a ten degree slope for an hour in Randonee gear creates a bunch of heat, and the fabric's breathability along with the cool vents on the inside of the thighs get the heat out. Nice touch. The mesh lining is not too light or too heavy. I turned the pant inside out and the seams are nicely sewn. There is some quality construction here. No problems with any zippers so far. The "style" is cool, even for an old guy. My warning about the fit--go smaller than you normally would. I have a 34" waist, 30" inseam, took a chance and bought Small-they fit perfect. Pockets are nicely angled, fabric is tough, water-proof/breathable claims are true. Bottom lines is, these pants are excellent. I never heard of Sessions before cruising your site, but I will keep an eye their other offerings.

This system is so simple that with just a bit of common sense, anyone can figure out how to install them. The "towers", as they are called, clamp onto the side rails of most factory racks, gripping the Yak bar and the side rail simultaneously as you tighten them--but not all. Some early Subaru Foresters require their own towers and there may be a few other cars out there that this product doesn't fit. Nissan Xterra's need something altogether different. So check out Yak's website or call them. Unfortunately, some dealers out there don't know how to read the Yak Fit Guide, so beware. This is a quality product, similar to Thule's 400XT, but each brand must match up to it's own round or square bars. Spendy, but it goes with you when you sell your cherished K-Car.

This ski/board carrier is nice looking as well as practical. My older version fits only Thule bars, but the latest version has a universal bar clamp that works with Thule, Yak, and most factory cross-bars, Nissan Xterra excluded. Easy installation, but don't lose the included Torx tool. It's similar to a hex, or Allen wrench, but fits only Torx head screws and it has a "security" feature, which is a tiny hole in the middle that mates to a pin on the Torx head screw. It makes it hard for a thief to steal your Thule ski/board carrier, but also makes it hard for you to remove it if you don't have the tool. In fact, it's darn near impossible. Locks are included, a nice touch. Lifetime guarantee--keep your receipt.

There are two ways to get rid of wind noise from car racks--Get some good speakers and turn up the volume or install a fairing, Yak or Thule on your rack bars. The fairing is also a nice place to put stickers for whatever else you think is cool. The fairing from Yak works as good as the better looking one from Thule. Hey, all they do is direct fast flowing air over the rack bars. Without the bars, fast flowing air howls, screams and whines. (That's where the good speakers come in handy.) It's all simple aerodynamics. Direct the air flow over the round or square thing that is not aerodynamic and things will settle down. Ask the U. S. Air Force. Ask all those aliens that have those flying saucer things. They know.

This kayak rack item is a well crafted, nice looking and relatively inexpensive answer to carrying your boats. You can put four kayaks on a small car securely with some effort. It's a bit harder to turn your kayak up on its side and strap in down to the Stacker than it is to slide it up on a cradle carrier, but if you need to carry more than two kayaks and cost is an issue, then this carrier fills the bill. It fits 95% of factory crossbars and works with Yak bars as well. The J style carriers from Thule and Yak work fine, but check out the cost. The Stackers fold down when not in use--helps a bit with gas mileage and looks better. My advice is to strap each kayak to the Stacker and then another strap around both kayaks and the Stacker. More straps means bomb-proof security at 70mph, not to mention the turbulence from big rigs on the interstate. This is a good looking kayak carrier that delivers. Easy on, easy off.

I read the other review and respectfully disagree, but not because the reviewer is wrong. The purpose of this gummi is to remove light rust, light burrs and to polish steel edges. It is meant to be a follow-up, if need be, to a coarse, medium or fine diamond stone, tools that are intended to remove the big burrs and smooth very rough imperfections on the steel.
I use this gummi for polishing and detuning with very good results and have been using this or one like it for a decade.
Perhaps the fault lies with the marketing types who have given this item the name "edge grinding rubber". Leave off the word "grinding" and you have an apt description of the tool.
Shame on you Toko. Tell it like it is.
