Effective but LOUD
After receiving these universal cross bars from CargoSmart, I installed them for a 90-minute round-trip test drive with nothing loaded on it because, if they didn't work, I didn't want to find out in a truly unfortunate manner. Happily, both bars stayed firmly in place on the Nissan Pathfinder's installed rails, so I have faith in these for actual loads moving forward. That said, there are a few issues with the bars that I have to address: − THE NOISE. Inside our Pathfinder isn't a quiet place, but, with the bars installed, it became almost painfully loud inside. I actually almost pulled over on the highway to uninstall them because my wife and I were getting so annoyed (and starting to develop headaches) from the constant whistling sound. − The instructions are picture-only (no words), which slowed down the setup process the first time I tried them out (especially having to figure out, on my own, that the mount had to be unlocked before it could be loosened/tightened). − All 4 keyslots on the bars are banged up a decent amount (see photo). Luckily, this didn't keep them from working, but it doesn't look great. − The cross bars don't move at all from front to back on the vehicle, but I did notice some side-to-side motion of the bars on their mounts even though I'd tightened them as much as I could by hand during installation.

Solid attachments but too narrow for big vehicles
The mounting on this rack is very solid. It clamps down on your vehicle’s factory roof bars using a ball and allen key. Because of the ball, the allen key doesn’t need to be aligned with the rack while tightening which makes mounting a bit easier than expected. Unfortunately the rack is too narrow for our Tahoe but perfect for a Prius-sized roof. The rack also has a good locking mechanism that works after the rack is mounted and adjusted. It also has a reasonable load capacity (150#).

Good if you have the right model car
The pros first... The aluminum and plastic parts will not rust. The end caps install securely and protect your items from the sharp edges of the aluminum rails. The bolt for tightening the clamps is covered and protected after installation so it can't be removed without the key. The inserts act as an anti-slip for items placed on the rails. The cons next... It doesn't fit all cars because each manufacturer has different styles of roof side rails. Subaru for example uses an almost flat bar and this does not attach securely to that style. Other manufacturers use a taller angled bar and this would work great on those.

Could be a nice rack but did not fit my Subaru well
The CargoSmart universal cross bar roof rack system appears well made with aluminum cross bars and reinforced nylon feet. It comes with an allen key to tighten the feet to the cross bars and two keys. The feet slide along the track located on the bottom of the cross bars allowing you to adjust them to the desired width. The locking mechanism slides a shield over the allen head so the feet cannot be loosened when I your vehicle. The cross bars are meant for use with vehicles with open rails, meaning your vehicle must already have the rails in place. On my 2013 Subaru Outback the design of the rails is a flat oval shape and could not get the feet to confidently secure around the rail. While they were clamped on tight I was not confident they would stay on securely and would be hesitant to drive at freeway speeds with a kayak strapped to them. Also, in the included instructions there is a picture showing the cross bars should be mounted 700mm (about 27.5 inches) apart, on my Subaru I was only able to mount them about 22 inches apart due to the rail ends on my vehicle. I like the fact the feet slide around easily and can get the cross bar centered without much effort. What I did not like was the key could not be removed from the lock if the shield was down or in the unlocked position. This meant you needed to use the second key provided to go to the foot on the opposite side to center the bar. Fortunately the cross bar slides around until tightened, but it's nice to have both feet loose around the rail, center the cross bar, and then tighten both feet. This can be done, just need to use both provided keys. Also, the instructions say to tighten the allen head bolt that secures the foot to the bar 4nm which is about 35 in lbs, which is impossible to know or measure. Overall, this could be a nice cross bar roof rack if your factory rails are triangular in shape, just did not work well with my vehicle.
Instructions could be better
This roof rack has its pluses and one minus. First the minus. The instructions are just pictures - no words. It took me a while to figure out that each bracket must be unlocked with the key in order to use the (included) allen wrench to tighten the brackets to the existing roof rails. After being tightened, the key locks the bracket in place. Once I figured that out, installation was fairly easy. The cross bars slide easily on the brackets and have an endcap to keep debris out.

Super easy to install!
I received the CargoSmart 150 lbs. Universal Cross Bar Roof Rack to test for Home Depot and I think that this is a winner! The carrier bars are super simple to install and seem like they would almost any type of vehicle with raised top bars. I did put a couple of drops of oil into the lock-set to make the operation a little smoother. They seem very sturdy and able to handle most loads. Easy to put on and easy to take off it you prefer not to leave them installed.

Great design, minor shortcomings
Cargosmart seem to have adopted a very scientific approach to building a cross bar. The company itself is more well know as Winston Products in Cleveland, OH and I have bought from them various products related to cargo management, which have played well their part. These crossbars have been manufactured using aluminum alloy, which is very sturdy and holds normally the weight of at least 200 lbs. although formally rated for 150 lbs. I used it couple of times to carry 8-feet sheets of plywood and drywall and that saved me several times the $20 to rent a truck from HD. I should begin that I particularly like that design of crossbars as they fully utilize the entire width of 52 inches of load bearing length area, as opposed to the more fancy type that only links the space between the rails. Most cars are rated to about 140 lbs loadbearing on the roof, so the design is covering well that limit. Both cross bars are at the same length of 52 inches. Seemingly thin and lightweight with only 9.25 lbs, it is exceptionally strong and able to withstand flexing and drag resistance from the wind. The holding brackets are great, well engineered to fit most roof rails that are elevated above the roof on Honda CRVs, RAV4s and Subarus. The design is such that they hold better with increasing the load on them. There is absolutely no possibility of the rack failing and disconnecting if installed properly. The materials used aren't disclosed on the product description but from the looks of it, it seems like high-density polyethylene with UV resistance additives and about 15% fiber reinforcement. The compound is similar to what handguns are made from and is well resistant to the elements without getting brittle with age, exposure to sunlight, heat-freeze cycles and high acidity rainfall. I certainly liked the keyed security cover and although it certainly adds some level of safety it is easily overcome by destructive tampering with a large screwdriver. To me that must have increased costs which could've been utilized better someplace else. They certainly look high end and classy, and make removal somewhat hard, but even the gate that protects the hex bolt can be overcome even though definitely not easily. I'd recommend using some non-permanent thread sealant on the bolts to make sure they stay tight. The design is such that you must not overtighten them, After the jaws make contact, you need just few turns to get it to stay where you need it, and the rubber non-slip jaw cover at the back and the grey part will not let go of the surface of the rail, even during rain. The rack has enough clearance to allow sunroof opening without interference. At speeds of about 90 mph there is certainly a whistling sound coming from the bottom space of the rack that lacks the rubber cover like the top does. I expected to have this one in the set, although I was determined to throw it away - I don't like to keep covered closed off spaces where water can accumulate. I found only two small drain holes for the top channel that could get clogged up easily and could potentially cause an issue in winter when water accumulates and freezes there. The end caps are not held by anything but friction. Yes, they are well secured and it takes some force to put them in, they certainly aren't going anywhere, but just in case I drilled mine with two small holes on both ends and put stainless screws. I was perplexed to find that the securing hex bolts are both stainless and zinc plated. This is probably as expensive a process of countering corrosion as it can get, and I guess that's why the manufacturer offers 1 year warranty on this one. It is a great product at an unbeatable price, but I believe there are a few trifle things that need to be addressed on future versions, including a better installation and usage manual.

Well designed and well made roof rack
The CargoSmart 150 lbs. Universal Cross Bar Roof Rack is a very well design and made universal roof rack. The tools needed to attach it are included as well as a good instruction sheet. The instructions even indicate how to install the slot covers to prevent the roof rack from whistling while the car is moving. The design of the end clamps is very sturdy and the instructions are clear as to how to properly attach them.

Universal cross bar roof rack
I ordered the CargoSmart 150 lbs. Universal cross bar roof rack. The roof rack is well made and would fit any car that has the standard side rails. They are easy to install and has all the hardware needed to install the racks. No tools required. Great for carrying Paddle boards and kayaks. They lock onto the side rails of your car and the mounts are tamper resistant with a lockable access point. They are made with corrosion resistant materials that standup well to elements. I like these roof racks because they work well for our use.

Good, Not Great
So I understand this is a universal set & maybe my car is one of the exceptions, but it is not ideal for my SUV. The biggest issue is it whistles LIKE CRAZY - so much so that I'm probably going to have to take them off. I think the issue is that because the clamps are made to fit a variety of roof racks, it leaves a decent size hole that air passes through if your roof rack isn't that exact shape. As far as installation, it was pretty straightforward, though one of the keyholes was a little damaged, so getting the key into the slot was a challenge. They're pretty stable, though they still have a little wiggle to them if you push on them. I think it would be more stable if the rubber pads were built in (see photo). Anyway, could work great for other cars, but getting a car-specific set might be a safer option.
