Notes on using a roof box

When it comes to expanding the storage capacity of your vehicle for road trips or moving, roof box for car is an invaluable accessory that provides extra space without compromising the comfort of passengers inside the car.

It can help people in the car place large luggage, thereby increasing the space inside the car. Generally, we use ropes to secure the luggage to the roof of the car, and the car top carrier is generally designed on off-road vehicles, which is in line with the nature of off-road station wagons.

When using a rooftop cargo boxes, we should pay attention to the following points:

1. Installation:

Generally, the installation position of the rooftop cargo carrier should not be too far back or too far forward, and make sure that when the rear tailgate of the vehicle is fully opened or the hood is fully opened, it will not hit the roof box. The roof box should be parallel to the road surface, which can ensure that wind resistance and wind noise are minimized during high speed driving

2. Weight distribution

Make sure the weight in the car roof cargo box is evenly distributed. This helps prevent tipping and potential damage to the vehicle.

3. Secure connection

Secure the roof box with tie-downs or straps. This prevents it from moving during transportation, which can affect the handling of the vehicle.

4. Weatherproofing

Protect your belongings from the elements. Use waterproof covers or plastic bags to protect your belongings from rain, snow, and road debris.

5. Choose the right roof box

Choose a roof storage box car that is compatible with your vehicle’s size and has the right amount of storage space for your needs. Soft-shell boxes are good for bulky items, while hard-shell boxes are better for protecting fragile items.

6. Avoid overloading

The luggage box should be chosen based on the size and load capacity of your car’s roof, and should not exceed the roof’s load capacity.

Heavier items should be placed at the bottom, and fragile items at the top. Make a list of the items to be packed and sort them according to weight and fragility.

Buy a quality roof rack that is compatible with your vehicle. A properly installed roof rack provides a stable foundation for your cargo box.

9. Regular inspections

Inspect your roof cargo bag frequently during transport. Stop every few hours to inspect the bag and make adjustments if necessary.
