It is an unnerving process fitting the hooks under the glass, to say the least……..
The bars don’t come with written instructions either, only horrible pictograms which I detest. Be patient: the hooks will slide in with minimal resistance even though it seems impossible at first. I added some thick tape to the metal part of the roof just outside of the hooks: the hooks are plastic coated but I added protective tape to belt and braces it.
I fitted mine during the England semi final. The cheers and groans coming from the nearest pub garden seemed to exactly match my progress and mood as I fitted them for the first time……
It‘s a 5-10 minute process to remove or refit them after the first time.
I ended up ordering the Farad bike carriers too. They should be here next week so hopefully I can report positive vibes about them.
