Fairing Attachment Very Difficult
While this is a rugged basket, the end of installation is extremely frustrating. Step 10 is to mount on vehicle. Step 11 is to install fairing (wind screen with Thule mark), using "push-through" fasteners and fairing clips. My fasteners did not push-through; had they done so, it would have been very difficult to align the holes in the fairing clips. Furthermore, doing this with basket on vehicle was very awkward. I wasted 2 hours on this and gave up. For the cost, Thule ought to have a much better system to attach its ad to one's car.
Pros: Once on vehicle, seems extremely secure.
Cons: Installation difficulty noted above. Also, though I've not loaded the basket yet, the way it mounts to factory roof rails may make loading awkward because of the way mounts project into basket. Finally, because the screws mounting to the roof rails go from beneath the basket up, I am concerned that when removing, I may scratch the surface of my (new) car.
