My husband I purchased this product for kayaks and luggage. It worked great, install was a breeze. The only drawback was one incorrect part was sent in our kit. (The rubber foot that you see in the photo actually, they are cut to fit a certain side of the car, and our back passenger was wrong) My husband and I attempted to install anyways because we had to be on the road and couldn’t really wait for a replacement piece. The rubber molded itself and the system still worked perfectly. (note* we have a Mazda CX-7 with grooves in the hood where this will fit, which is why I feel that even though the rubber piece was wrong, the groves were able to allow it work. If you don’t have the grooves I would return the piece.) I would defiantly recommend this product!
