Car Racks and Winter


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I was about to take my kayak rack off my car when I realized I would want to use it to transport my boat to rolling sessions this winter. Any words of wisdom on leaving the rack on over the winter? Obviously you want to careful when cleaning snow and ice off around it. What else do I need to know?

Because vibration and temperature changes tend to loosen nuts and bolts, check, tighten and lubricate all bolts, knobs etc on a regular schedule (every 2-4 weeks).

I use lithium grease on all threads to prevent corrosion and insure easy removal and/or adjustment. If you have locks, just use a lock lubricant/antifreeze.

IMHO, the above only takes a few minutes and should be done throughout the year.

Living to learn.
