When I ordered this I was not sure if it would fit on my OEM Subaru roof rack (2006 wagon). It does! I would think that it would work with most OEM crossbars, regardless of shape. It seems pretty "Universal". The pictures on the website don't indicate that the mounting feet swivel and there is extra included hardware (four bottom feet) that you also get. You just use two screws per mount to attach. It was pretty easy to put on and the locks work well. This product comes with a hex key you don't want to lose because a normal hex key won't work for security reasons.

We broke our orignal in the car wash. Was happy when the box arrived and it contained the complete ski rack (both racks and mouniting hardware) I was worried that for the price they were going to send me just one "rack". Was easier to install than the original. Best price I could find on this rack.
The model number is 91725. The description says up to 6 skis, it would depend on how fat were the skis. One reviewer says, "However, given that 98mm waisted skis are now considered "mid-fat" & now that there are lots of people skiing on 110mm skis or fatter, it's possible that 6 pairs will not fit." Another states"We had no problem fitting five sets of skis. Rack went on easily and we're already put it too great use!"

“I see this rack will lock closed. Does it also lock onto the crossbars or does it just bolt onto the crossbars?”
