How to Attach a TentBox to a Roof Rack
The base slats on roof racks come in various shapes and sizes. Some have slats that run from the front to back, some have slats that run from side to side, and some have both! In addition, the slats come in varying widths depths.
When you can use our standard clamping system
The standard TentBox clamping system is designed to work with two cross bars, which run from the side to side of the vehicle, and have a width of between 2 and 8.5 cm.
The fixing rails underneath the TentBox are spaced 60cm apart.
You can use our standard system if:
Your roof rack has slats that run from side to side
Those slats are between 2 and 8.5 cm
The fixing rails underneath the TentBox, which are 60cm apart, line up correctly with the gaps in your roof rack, allowing space for the bolts of the clamping system to drop through

Crossbar Weight Limits
Crossbars frequently referred to as roof bars, fit onto the roof of your vehicle and hold extra equipment. In short, as long as the weight of the TentBox you are buying is less than your crossbar weight limit, then it's okay.
Your crossbar static load limit is at least 5 times the dynamic load limit quoted by the manufacturer.
A dynamic load refers to the maximum weight allowed whilst your vehicle is moving, and the static load is when your vehicle is stationary.
When considering the added weight of people inside the TentBox, you should use the static load limit of your vehicle. You can work this out by multiplying the dynamic load (listed in your vehicle handbook) by 5.
