How to Use a Roof Rack

If you're planning on taking a road trip in your vehicle, the roof rack that is attached to the top of the car will come in handy when transporting your personal belongings. Roof racks have a simple design but require a few steps to be used correctly and prevent items from falling off while the car is in motion.

Start by measuring the size of the bag or box that you plan to attach to the rack to ensure that it fits correctly. The item shouldn't hang over the windshield. Attach it with at least four cam-buckle straps and secure it with two additional straps from the front to the back.

The box or bag should be empty when it's secured before filling it with the contents. Attaching the container when it's empty will prevent injuries because you won't have to lift as much weight onto the top of the vehicle.
