Model 3 Roof Rack
Ordered as well. Thanks!
I have Thule bike racks and roof top box that attach to a square bar. Does anyone know if there is some type of adaptor that I can use my old bike racks and ski box?
Still available 537 am eastern...go figure
“Overtightening will result in broken glass.”
Uh....it clips to the glass? And people are supposed to guess how tight 8 nm is? This should be entertaining.
A lot of lower end torque wrenches are off by as much as 10%. If you slightly over-torque a fastener that is going into aluminum or steel it usually wouldn't damage the mating material. If you over-torque a fastener that is tightening up something to glass then the results can be quite a bit more expensive. I believe parts + labor to replace the glass roof exceeds $1,000.
Typical homeowner who has stuff for assembling Ikea furniture won't have a torque wrench and potentially doesn't even know what one is or how to operate it.
Does anyone know what brand bike rack is being used in the Tesla photo?
Anyone know when Tesla opens for deliveries to europe?
3/8" Drive Newton Meter Adjustable Click-Type Fixed Ratchet Torque Wrench (5–25 N•m)
I'm going to have Tesla SC install mine, chances of them backing up their work if they crack the glass is probably fairly high I hope.
I'm not sure what your point is here. I own and now how to use lots of tools including torque wrenches... as well as a lot of specialized tools much more complicated than a torque wrench.
MY point was that the typical consumer even if they see a torque specification for a fastener isn't going to go acquire a torque wrench to tighten it properly when they are dealing with something as mundane as a roof rack.
Looks like it might actually be here to stay this time! Still in stock
Can confirm. Just got mine ordered w/confirmation email!
Soo......anyone who already HAS the rack out there?
If so, what box are you using?
If it fits, I'm looking to get one of these:
I'm going to be using the Yakima Fat Cat Evo 6 since I only plan on transporting skis/snowboards
