This foot pad for square bars, with appropriate fit kit for factory fixed points is a great way to keep an aerodynamically clean roof when the racks are not needed. The rubber base of the foot pad conformed perfectly to the roof channels and are non-scratching. The system of foot pad, fit kit, and bar must be used together. If the installation instructions are followed correctly the first time (about 30 minutes), the whole rack assembly can be removed or later re-installed in a few minutes. Just don't lose the rods, spacers and nuts.
Pros:Once and done sizing and installation.
Cons:Loose parts to keep secure when not mounted to roof.
