Each strap has (2) strap pieces connected through a center buckle. Sport Car Top Carrier Set Up Guide The correct attachment of this product is critical and beyond the control of Rightline Gear. The safe use and long life of this product depends entirely on your good judgment and following these directions. Pack The Carrier 1-Place the Sport Car Top Carrier on the top of your vehicle with its closed end facing forward. 2-Load your gear inside the carrier, evenly distributing the weight. Place items with sharp or pointed edges in the middle and pack softer items around them to protect the carrier material (Fig 1). 3-Close the ZipRight zipper system and fold the protective flap down (Fig 2). Secure all of the Velcro closures. 1-Unthread the short strap piece from the buckle and secure it to your rack by threading its end through its loop and pulling tight (Fig 5). Go to the opposite side of the vehicle and secure the long piece to the rack by the same method. 2-Run both strap pieces through the d-rings on each side of the cargo bag (Fig 6). Bring them together on top of the carrier. 3-Thread the short strap piece back through the center buckle (Fig 7). 4-Repeat steps 1-3 for each of the straps that will be used. Fig 5 Fig 6 Fig 7 The Sport Jr Car Top Carrier comes with (2) straps and (4) car clips (Fig 10). When using the Sport Jr Carrier on a vehicle with a roof rack, remove the clips from the ends of the straps. Attaching the straps front to back between the cross bars or side to side between the side rails will sufficiently secure the carrier. Attach The Carrier - WITHOUT A Roof Rack Fig 1 Fig 2 IMPORTANT: PACK THE CARRIER FULL SO THAT ITS SIDES ARE PULLED TIGHT. THIS STEP PREVENTS EXCESS MATERIAL FROM FLAPPING IN THE WIND WHICH CAN DAMAGE THE CARRIER AND CAUSE THE STRAPS TO LOOSEN. Attach The Carrier - WITH A Roof Rack The Sport 3 and Sport 1 Carriers come with (4) straps (Fig 3). Attaching (2) straps front to back between the cross bars or (2) straps side to side between the side rails will sufficiently secure the carrier. Using all (4) straps will provide the most secure method of attachment (Fig 4). Make sure the roof rack is anchored to your vehicle and don’t exceed its weight limit. Through The Vehicle 1-Unthread the short strap piece from the buckle and connect its loop end to the loop end of the long strap piece (Fig 8). 2-Run the strap through the vehicle, through the d-rings and over the top of the carrier (Fig 9). 3-Thread the short strap piece back through the center buckle (Fig 7) and tighten. 4-Repeat steps 1-3 for a second strap. Fig 8 Fig 9 The Car Clips may be removed from the Sport Jr’s straps to attach the carrier Through The Vehicle. NOTE: With larger vehicles you will need to connect (2) straps together to form (1) double long strap. Fig 3 Fig 4 1-Leave (1) strap as originally provided and separate the (2) pieces of the second strap by unthreading the short strap piece from the center buckle. 2-Connect the loop end of each strap piece to a loop end of the first strap (Fig 8). 3-Run the strap through the vehicle, through the d-rings and over the top of the carrier (Fig 9). 4-Thread the short strap piece back through the center buckle (Fig 14) and tighten. 5-Repeat steps 1-4 to create a second double long strap. Buckle Loop Ends Buckle Double Long Strap Tri-glides Car Clips Rightline Gear Car Clips (included with the Sport Jr, otherwise sold separately) are added to the straps of a Sport Car Top Carrier (Fig 10). The clips allow the carrier to attach to a sturdy ledge on the vehicle’s door frame. On most vehicles, the best ledge can be found under the weather molding (Fig 11 & Fig 12), however, any metal ledge, rain gutter, or the outside of the weather molding itself can be used. Each strap has (2) strap pieces connected through a center buckle. 1-Unthread the short strap piece from the buckle and run both strap pieces through the d-rings on each side of the carrier. Bring them together on the top of the carrier (Fig 13). 2-Thread the short strap piece back through the center buckle (Fig 14). 3-Attach the clips to the open door frames and tighten the strap at the buckle. 4-Repeat steps 1-3 for a second strap. 5-Shut the door of the vehicle over the clips/straps, securing them in place (Fig 15). Fig 10 Fig 11 Fig 12 Fig 13 Fig 14 Fig 15 IMPORTANT: DO NOT ATTACH STRAPS TO THE DRINGS AS THEY WILL CAUSE THEM DAMAGE. The strap tension over the top of the carrier secures the load. Final Adjustments For All Straps Fig 17 Fig 16 Fig 18 1-Secure the extra length of each strap in the plastic triglide so that it doesn’t flap in the wind (Fig 16). 2-Tie off any excess strap length (Fig 17). If the straps are too long, cut off the extra length and melt the cut end to prevent fraying. 3-Position the straps at least 20” apart on each side of the carrier (Fig 18). 4-Check the straps before driving and regularly throughout the trip. www.rightlinegear.com LIMITED WARRANTY Rightline Gear warrants that for one (1) year, from the date of purchase that all products will be free of material defect and Rightline Gear will repair or replace any defective or damaged product free of charge if it is returned in original condition by the consumer to Rightline Gear or the place of purchase.
