Bargain roof bars. £21!

Post by Janwal » Tue Mar 17, 2020 5:36 pm

I wanted some roof bars for occasional use. I found these on Amazon for only £21. They are made in Sweden and are labelled Saab but fit the Arona perfectly. They are fastened by a torq key not an Allen key. They don’t lock but that is not a problem for me as they won’t be left on the car. Although my experience of those that do lock is that they are not the most substantial keys anyway.
Can’t seem to post a link to them on Amazon as it won’t copy properly.

Been trawling fleaBay for months... even elcheapo ones are 20 quid... so these look to be a bargain, and having the saab name suggests quality... we'll have to see !

You're welcome... and for future reference, when you post a link - use cut and paste to put the address into a post using full editor, you highlight the link the click the link icon (looks like a chain link)

THANKS AGAIN...

Mine have arrived.... and I'm very pleased !
They are built like a tank, other cheap bars I've had are made of tinfoil and poundshop plastic, but these are excellent quality, and fit the Arona like they were made for it.
One bar is shorter than the other - for the rear... which surprised me as I did not even know the roof bars weren't parallel !

The fitting wrench is T30 BTW - mine was missing, but borrowed one from a neighbour... hopefully the seller will send me one !

Thanks again to Janwal for spotting these 👍

Thanks for the update, have now ordered a set. No immediate plans to use, but can guarantee that they won't be available when I do need them.

I got mine yesterday & put them on today.
Sturdy enough and holds the bike rack well.
