Re:


heck Dave ..you're right! ... that would be so much easier .. haha . I dont want the basket to look 'elevated' ..but it would only raise the thing 1/8" probably ..barely noticeable.

so much simpler ..lol

Re: Slim roof basket for T31 Extreme/ Hyper rails?


Hi Graeme,

I have the same type of basket as Dave and I think I also got it at Supercheap or Autobahn when it was on special for half price.

Can you post a pic of the grommets on your cross rails for us ?
Then I could look at my basket and post a pic for you of the grid pattern measurements so you can see exactly where the grommets would sit in relation to all the grid wires of the basket.

Re:


hello Kev, the grommets are the usual things on the 4 ends of the T31 Hyper rail crossbars .... P10 of THIS thread has lots of pics ..you can see them clearly. Hopefully you'll understand what I mean ...

these things ..grommets/boots. Pic is before it gets slid along and fixed against the rail cover ..but you get the idea

Re: Slim roof basket for T31 Extreme/ Hyper rails?


OK Graeme, these are the dimensions of my basket...

35 inches wide x 46 inches long at base
grid pattern is about 1 7/8 inches square
1st grid wire is 5/8 inch from side
there are 17 grid squares across and 23 grid squares in length

Hopefully from this you can take measurements of your rails to see if the grommets can fit between grid wires or if you need to cut one at each grommet, or as Dave mentions, add a length of hard rubber strip across the rails to lift the basket slightly above the grommets.

Re:


Many thanks for the help with this guys...it is very much appreciated. I'm pretty sure that basket would fit fine ... I can decide later whether to snip a few wires or shim the whole basket upwards a little.

Next problem is trying to get one to Phils ...... lots of suppliers in Aus, but none so far seem to want to ship overseas. I've sent a few emails & queries ... we'll see what comes back this week.

Re:


i've emailed the PH Rhino Rack distributor ...and was told 'they dont import that product. Regrets' .. this is life in Phils. There is no consumer power or actual customer service ... the population get what they are given ..period.

I'm in contact with them at least....and have suggested that since they are the local distributor .. they can import whatever they like.
