The HandiRack – inflatible car rack protects your stuff and your roof
With summer vacation here, you may find yourself in need of some extra space in your car while travelling, as such, it’s a good idea to consider investing a product we showcased last year called the HandiRack. It will cost about a hundred dollars, but will protect your roof’s paint job from getting scratched while you’re hauling anything on top of your car. Whether surfboards, vacation luggage, or even a large piece of furniture you have to haul home from the store, the HandiRack is just the rack to do the job.
Winner of the 2006 Good Housekeeping Innovation Awards, the HandiRack is an inflatable rack which can carry over 175 pounds and not only installs in minutes, but will also deflate to the size of a small toaster and store in your trunk when you don’t need it. It can carry so much weight because of triple-layer vinyl skin design.
Installation is fairly straight forward as straps are flat enough to wrap into the car itself and have the doors close easily. This allows you to open and shut the doors and windows without any interference. The straps are secured by main plastic clips that hold it in place, whereby both inflatable chambers can be inflated.
HandiRack will work on any car, truck or van that doesn’t come with curtain airbags as standard equipment.
