Crafted with double layered webbing frame and 36" extension mounting straps built on at all points. Completely overkill, but we never want that load to shift or need "constant rechecking" on the road or trail. Gobi-Desert, safari, overloading extreme-duty cargo nets in assorted sizes and so much easier than trying to deal with individual ratchet straps or rope. Place your load up on your rack and place the net over it. Go around the sides and cinch down the net's straps to secure the entire load quickly and easily. Tie up or push under the load any excess ends strap and you are ready to go.
Measure your safari rack perimeter and allow about 4-5" of clearance for hardware if you wish to contain items below the racks top rails carrying smaller items. If you normally load taller items, spare tires, pelican cases etc you may want a wider and/longer net to wrap completely over your load. Note first two images of the same net, loaded and empty to base your sizing needs when ordering.
Net sizes are in INCHES (for example first option is a 1" webbing material width, 11" Length x 11" width etc.) Built on mounting straps are typically about 18-24 inches apart and 36" length. Please note: nets smaller than 36" on the shorter sides will not have a center strap built in unless custom built as an option upgrade to do so. We recommend 36" wide or wider for most aftermarket roof racks so that they will incorporate a center strap.
You may add custom colored stitching, but it is NOT RECOMMENDED leaving the roof rack net on year round as bright threads may fade and lose their brightness. Sun UV, salt and mag chloride are very hard on these colors. If you want to leave the net on full-time it is recommended to match the thread color to the webbing color or select black for contrast.
Fit example: If you carry really tall loads, Pelican cases, totes etc. we recommend a net about 4-8" wider and longer than the rack frame to wrap over the gear. If mostly bags, tents etc then a net that is just smaller than the rack will be fine. *Additional note for 5th Gen Toyota 4Runner owners: The size 56" x 86" is a larger one-piece net designed to fit the entire Gobi Desert style roof rack is a good suggestion for this type use and shown on some of these sample images on the charcoal grey 4Runner with tote cases up higher.
How to Install
Tie up those loose ends!
Always make sure that your net and load is secured tightly and any extra adjustment strap material is tied up so it cannot become loose and damage your gear, net or others behind you. *Always double check your load after it has had a chance to settle or before entering public roads or highways.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I have an FJ cruiser with an OEM roof rack, but I removed the OEM cross bars and installed a Garvin adventure rack that covers the whole roof. It is 40 inches x 70 inches. I was planning to get the 2" nets but the dimensions were off so I am thinking to get the 1" nets. Can you tell me if there is a major difference in strength or durability or will the 1" nets hold up well? Also, My roof rack is 3 inches deep and I typically tie down gear that is flat (max 8-10 inches high) so I assume the 41x71 size 1-inch net will work... But occasionally I would like to put a cool box and a storage box that is 20 inches high... Will the 36 inch straps allow for that or do I have to do something different?
Regarding the strength; yes, but either far exceeds what you would typically load in the roof of a vehicle anyway. They start at 800#. See the "Materials & Color Info" bar here by the "Add to Cart" button here.
We recommend MILSPEC versions if they will be exposed to lots of sunshine and rainy weather use.
We would suggest the 36x66" one (or 34x66" in the 2" webbing). All the measurements are the nets perimeter and do not include the mounting buckle itself. Those will add just under 3" for each side. It will then allow the net to tension down flat for a very small load. If you will never carry small loads then bump up to the next Width and a Length measurements for either 1" or 2" webbing version.
My roof rack is rhino rack pioneer platform, it doesn’t have any side bar, is it possible to use roof rack cargo net? Is it safe to tie down all my stuff? http://www.rhinorack.com/en-us/products/roof/roof-racks/pioneer-platform/pioneer-platform-84-x-56-unassembled_ja8209
Yes, is works well as it can't slide past the crossbar slats and it can be pulled extremely tight as to not allow any movement. We also run the same rack on our shop 18 4Runner and travel all over North America using it and our nets although it's been carrying the RTT as well recently.
