      Hi,
      These clamps are made to be clamped into the factory rain gutters that are part of the roof of the vehicle. If your vehicle has these gutters, there is a good chance they will fit. If it does not, then you can not use them. If you need more information please let me know. Eric

      Don't know.
      If your Range Rover's roof has a rain gutter extending from close to the
      windshield all the way to the back of the cabin, it will probably fit.
      If the doors are a flush fit, no.

      Tom, the Quick-N-Easy works with vehicles that have rain gutters for the uprights to fit onto and for the cam lever/clip assemblies to clamp under. If your vehicle is so designed, they should work.

    Q:

    I mounted these last year on a truck camper top, after mounting the rain guard brackets. It seemed to work fine. Now I cannot seem to get them tight enough. I have screwed they eye bolt down to the point where you cannot close the clamp anymore--and still the clamps are not tight enough (they shift side to side in the rain gutter). I am thinking about cutting the end of of the eyebolt so I can make the clamps tighter. Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong?

      A:

      There are two issues: 1) a normal vehicle gutter has some kind of dense,
      putty-like substance along the bottom which covers the welded joint
      between the roof and body parts. This serves to anchor the QnE tower
      from slippage. You can apply a 'car part' putty product, or epoxy a
      strip of stairway friction surface, etc in attempt to create more
      friction between tower and gutter. Additionally, you might mount bolts
      in the gutters on either side of each tower which could act as failsafe
      stops. Whatever you end up with, this needs to be addressed.
      2) The clamp is designed to keep your rack from flying off the car using
      tension on the threaded bolt, but not for keeping 2 smooth metal
      surfaces from slipping by use of pressure. By over tightening, you have
      lost the 90 degree angle on the bottom bracket. DO NOT CUT THE BOLTS!
      Remove cam lever, then bracket and work the bracket back to original
      shape with a hammer and vise- I speak from experience. Now you'll see
      that you have ample space under the lever for tightening the rack - the
      key is getting it snug enough to be safe, but not so tight it deforms
      the clamp. This 'repair'may have to be repeated in the future, you'll
      figure it out - good luck
      PS -Don't forget ropes from load to bumpers. I've never had a QnE rack
      take flight, but ya never know.....

      A:

      You're not doing anything wrong. I would cut off some of the thread, as you
      suggested. Use a Dremel if you have one and do about 1/8" at a time. You're
      certainly not going to weaken the eyebolt. I suggest taking the cam off the
      eyebolt and putting a metal nut on before you cut it. Then when you back off
      the nut, it will clean up the treads you just cut. The aluminum cam is too
      soft to clean up the threads.
      Also, I always put a little paraffin wax or surf wax on the cam and the
      little shoulder it rubs against as you push the lever down. The wax makes it
      operate nicely.
      I took their black plastic protectors off the uprights and coated them with
      tool dip instead. I just made a little foil trough and filled it with the
      tool dip. You can dip the part and let it dry as many times as you want to
      make it as thick as you want.
      Please let me know how it goes.

      A:

      Your crossbars may be loose. If your rack is equipped with tube holders,
      you need to make sure the attachment bolts are snugged down. Detach your
      rack feet from the rain gutters, then check to see if the feet can be
      wiggled with respect to the cross bars. If there's slop between the two,
      you've found your problem.

      When I installed mine, I also got them very tight. When it came time to close the clamps I was not able to do it by hand easily. This is probably part of their design to ensure that they do not open due to road vibrations. I used a rubber mallet, not a hammer to close them the rest of the way. Now they are very tight and I have not had a problem for a long time. I don't remove mine from the vehicle. I do check them each time I load a canoe on them and they are fine. Hope this helps. Mike.

      You could extend these towers with bolts or threaded rod to get the height you need. Most folks make cross members with 2 x 4s or similar lumber. If you did do this just be aware that the strength of the bolts or rod will determine the weight you can put on the finished rack.

I haven't lost any canoes or kayaks yet. I use a piece of foam on the front when the canoe is up there to keep it from rubbing the top. Kayaks are shorter are plastic and sit on the back so no problem..

The part of the clamp that actually holds it in place sticks out about ½ inch. I did not measure just eyeballed it. I think it might interfere with your door closing properly. Hope this helps out.

      These clips require a standard rain gutter, not the hidden
      gutter your Camry has. Not only do the towers sit in the gutter, but the
      attachment clip 'L' bracket passes on the outside of the gutter and
      pinches up from the bottom of the gutter to hold it all in place (if
      this makes sense to you). You best solution (expensive) is a Thule or
      Yakima rack - sorry!

      When we use them on vans to carry canoes, the metal flange that hangs from
      the bracket (shown above it in the picture) with the black rubber cap
      catches the bottom of the rain gutter, and when properly tensioned stays
      put. The you close the vehicle door below the rain gutter with a sliver of
      room to spare. My guess would be that it would be the same on an older
      Camry.

      I don't think it will work. It is 7/8" from the back of the upright (the big

      about an inch of gap between the door and the rain gutter.
      They are really intended for the old fashion rain gutters that are visible

The top part of this aluminum piece is a nicely machined flat surface with a hole in the middle of it. If you have other cross bars that span the width of the vehicle then drill a hole where you need it and insert a bolt and spacers to connect. Good luck.

To adapt the bars all you need to do is mark where to drill thru the bar after mounting the quick n easy racks. After drilling bar and slide bolt thru the top of bar down thru the rack and tighten the nut and you are done! I did the same thing but I used bamboo instead.

      Yes. You can mount a 2x4 to the Quick-n-Easy brackets to span the distance you need. Then mount either the Thule or Yakima bars to the 2x4 with basic hardware from a home improvement store being sure to elevate the cross bar an appropriate distance to accompany the brackets of the attachments you need (i..e. kayak holders, gear baskets, etc.). I did this with a full sized van to save on purchasing additional towers and crossbars (which both companies put an exorbitant price on) and so I could continue to use the same equipment I have on multiple vehicles. All it takes is a quick minute to detach the crossbars and off I go!

      A:

      I opted for 2x4 cross members for a number of reasons: 1) low cost 2)
      ease of installation 3) I can stand on them while loading boats on my
      full size van (6 ft at roof) 4) littered with screw-eyes and many bungy
      cords makes transport of every size craft (or even a mattress) easy.
      I've had 12 kayaks on my roof, on edge. I stapled strips outdoor carpet
      on top for added friction and boat protection. Brackets have a vertical
      mounting hole, and 2x4 is thru-bolted, counter-sunk to hide bolt head
      for boat protection. I painted the wood with a high quality gloss white
      for easy cleaning. If you opt for a tubular metal bar (harder on boats,
      more difficult for attachment points), you'll need the Quick-N-Easy tube
      holders. Since the rack is so easy to remove, its only mounted when I'm
      boating (noise and gas mileage). Check out the reviews on the NRS page
      for more info.
      Note on easy drilling: start with a 2x4 slightly longer than you need.
      Clamp a pair of brackets on your gutter. Calculate your overhang. and
      drill 1 hole. Don't ignore vehicle laws or the fact that you'll tend to
      bang your head as you exit your car if overhang it too much (trust me on
      this one)! Of course, with a 2x4 this is easy to remedy. Bolt the
      bracket to the 2x4, clamp to gutter, bring free bracket to correct
      position and mark from below. Drill, attach bracket and re-check
      overhang length, and cut off extra length. Remove 2x4, paint, install
      screw-eyes and mark 'front' or 'rear' as most vehicles have variable
      widths and the racks won't be interchangeable. As a last measure, I
      bought some aluminum channel stock (Home Depot}, U shaped, about 1/4" on
      a side, and set four 4" pieces w/epoxy at the positions where my
      brackets sit to protect my roof and gutter, sometimes I have a heavy
      load! I also replaced the stock lock screw for the lever/clip with a
      longer, stainless steel - on an old set of Q&E they got corroded - happy
      boating!

      A:

      On the top of the upright pieces is a flat area approximately 1.5 inches that has been machined flat. There is also a hole drilled through the center. I mounted 1" square tubing between them and used flat washers to get the height I needed. Since I use them to transport canoes I wrapped the cross bars with old mountain bike tires to provide grip so they don't slide as easily. I also mounted eyebolts at various places to provide tie down points for ropes or cinch straps. This rack system is very well made in my opinion and quite versatile. Once mounted they are rock solid. Hope this helped. Mike.

      Hi LandRoverDiscovery, I mounted my Quick and Easy mounts to the rain gutter of my 1951 Chevy Surf Wagon and used 2 inch bamboo stalks on cross bars for a very functional retro island beach look.
      I recommend you buy some galvanized 2 inch round stock from hardware store then just drill some holes at ends of bars and then bolt them to the mounts.
      Let me know how it turned out,
      George

    I bought a set of four Quick-n-Easy brackets to use as an interim rack solution on my Cherokee while waiting for an integrated rack to be fabricated. Because of the high level of usability of the brackets, I almost canceled the order for the other rack!

    The Quick-N-Easy brackets were very simple to install and use. To size the rails, I put two brackets on the vehicle loosely then ran a tape measure between the two mounting holes to get the correct distance. Two PT 2x4s drilled to that distance and a couple bolts was all it took to get the rack up and running.

    I gave the brackets a trial by fire by hauling construction lumber up a challenging 1/2 mile ATV trail to a remote building site. They worked admirably over a very punishing week.

    For longitudinal stability and load carrying capability, I don't think these brackets can be beat. The one-piece bracket arm is a huge advantage in this field and the wide footing in the gutter rail provides exceptional stability front-to-back. The one criticism I can provide is that the single mounting hole and small connection area on the end of each bracket arm to mount a rail means that the rack will have less lateral stability under a heavy load, especially off-road when the vehicle and the load are swaying from side to side. An enlarged contact area with two bolt holes instead of one would make the installation of a custom rail slightly more difficult, but would be a benefit to stability.

    Bottom line - This is well-made product at a great price point that allows the end-user ultimate flexibility in creating their own rack solution.

    Had an identical set in the '70's-90's. So I bought again. Did not fit the rain gutter of my 2009 Chevy Van w/o modification. At the price, one would think they would have improved the product. Pretty steep price, too, for a little aluminum casting.

      These Quick-N-Easy racks are the only way to go on rain gutter style applications. I own 3 sets of these to go on my two vans and the cost and construction are second to none. Buying a name brand equivalent to these 3 sets would be well over $1000!

        I have built several styles of roof racks re-using these brackets time after time as my needs and vehicle styles changed. They are absolutely the strongest, most reliable, least worrysome bracket available. I'd say they are versitle and indestructable. I recommend without reservation.

        I mounted these to my 1993 Toyota Land Cruise FJ80, at first was skeptical. .. BUT after it mounted, SOLID. I plastidipped them black and used wooden 2x2's as crossbars. Holds my Rhino
        Rack solid. Also, was able to mount these and completely bypass my existing factory roof rack and bars.

            Was able to create and design a rack for my VW bus cheaper and better than other racks. Also looks like an old school, classic rack for the bus. Old school look with new school strength, love it
