I bought these thinking they would work with my older model big powderhound rack like it states above. I installed these to only realize they don't work and are replacements for newer model big powderhound and powderhound racks. I'm extremely disappointed with my purchase.
Merchant Response:
Ben, Thanks for the review, it is useful to hear of the problem you encountered. The Yakima Ski Lift Kit 8860037 only works with what are termed Generation III Yakima Ski Carriers, which are models made after 2006. We added this verbiage to our site to prevent future problems. You will need the older Lift Kit 8830017 which unfortunately is not in stock. I will credit your account and send a return label to retrieve the product. Thanks, Shawn
