Rated 4 out of 5 by RichardofYork from Good value for moneyEasy to put on and take off. Secure and solid once they are locked in position. Shame they don't sell the security locks anymore as someone could easily steal them from your car. However, as with the last pair of Halfords' roof bars I bought, they 'howl' when you drive. This could be because I didn't fit the little rubber infill pieces.

Rated 3 out of 5 by x2gsd from You get what you pay for!Bought these roof bars to fit my Wife's car so we could go kayaking the next day, however, the box they came in had been kicking round the store room for years, was taped up, had previously been fitted & returned & one of the essential keys was missing. (realised this later)The lady taped the top closed & held out her hand for the £85. I asked about a discount but she laughed as this was the last pair of bars in stock cause they were so popular... soooo why have they been kicking around for years?? I was desperate for the bars so paid the price. The bars themselves serve their purpose, they fit across the roof rails securely & our pair of kayaks fit nicely. The main problem is that once the items are off the roof you cannot leave the bars fitted cause over 45mph the wind noise is unbearable so I have to keep taking them off & refitting, very annoying. My advice, pay the extra, buy an original manufacturers part & save yourself the headache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Martin59 from Roof barsAfter a lot of research I purchased for my 2015 ford Kuga. Very easy to fit and remove. The clamping system works well with the oval type roof bars. Sturdy and secure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by St297 from Solid quality, easy to installBought this for a Nissan Qashqai having tried a cheap one off the internet and realised that was unusable. This in contrast was incredibly easy to install (took 5 mins) and seems to be very good quality. Just back from a 1000 mile trip and no problems at all. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PLB1 from Whistle Strips WorkBought this as we need to get rid of several large items. The local council now charge £57 for 3 items so it soon racks up. 2 trips to the dump and this will have paid for itself. Didn't feel the need to spend more on something which will be used infrequently. Without the whistle strips (and unloaded) the noise is noticeable at about 40 mph. Unbearable over 50 mph. I'd imagine having a load on might reduce this a bit. The instructions say not to have a gap between the roof rail and the clamp but this is impossible on my car (Mondeo, flush roof-rails). Went back to the shop to double check the fitting and for a bit of advice. The helpful chap I spoke to (Bracknell) said that the gap would probably be OK (I had the correct pack for the car) but that the whistle strips would make a massive difference. Also to make sure the bolts are really really tight. Went home, inserted the whistle strips, and no noise at 70 mph (unloaded).

Rated 5 out of 5 by josh7777 from Halfords Roof Bar System EThe roof bars were easy to fix and had clear pictorial instructions. I don't know what a Newton is and so using that as a measure of how tight I should make the fixings was a bit of a nonsense.
