How does the Sportraxx RL truck rack mount to my Honda Ridgeline?
The SportRaxx RL mounts to the truck bed of the Honda Ridgeline using the anchor points already in place. We will provide you with longer replacement bolts that will secure the rack in place. No drilling is required. The storage trunk will open most of the way. You'll still have full access to it.
Will it damage my truck?
The base plates of all the SportRaxx truck racks are padded with rubber to protect your truck finish.
What if I don't have stake pockets?
We have two options for you. One option is to drill holes in the bed rail. This offers the most secure fit and you can put the anchors back in the holes even when the rack itself is removed. No one ever needs to see the holes. Or, you could use our new clamps. We now offer clamps at an additional charge to mount your truck racks to the truck bed when no stake pockets are available.
Can I lock my equipment in place on the rack?
Yes, the Bike Raxx, Ski Raxx, and Snowboard Raxx are all made to accommodate locks. Canoes and kayaks can be secured in place with a locking cable. Keyed alike padlocks are available at an additional cost. See our Accessories page.
Does the Raxx system come with a warranty?
Yes. All products manufactured by SportRaxx by Simpson come with a two year limited warranty. This warranty does not apply to the accessory items such as Malone kayak cradles, padlocks and tie downs that we offer for your convenience but do not actually manufacture.
I already have a kayak rack from another manufacturer. Can I use it on the SportRaxx?
In many cases you can use other racks. As long as it works with our racks dimensions and will firmly attach to 1" square aluminum tubing. For best results please consult our engineer before purchasing.
Can I use a tonneau cover with a SportRaxx?
In many cases the answer is yes. Some tonneau covers such as the "Truxedo" do not cover the stake pockets. If your tonneau cover does not, it can be used with our racks.
