Details

Looking for a set of roof bars for your car? The HandiRack is a great option. This is a patented, multi-purpose, universal load carrier that can be fitted and removed in just a matter of minutes.


With a load capacity of 80Kg, the HandiRack is immensely strong. High quality materials are utilised together with the most advanced inflatable manufacturing techniques. It meets the internationally recognised standard for load carriers ISO/PAS 11154.


The good news is that you don't have to make a financial investment in a new set of roof bars every time that you change your car and should you have more than one vehicle in the household, the chances are that the HandiRack will fit them all.


The HandiRack comes in just one size and fits most 2, 3, 4 and 5-door cars. It's a much simpler solution than metal roof bars which often require fitting kits that are specific to the make and model of car. When not in use, the HandiRack takes up very little space and so is easily stowed.


It’s perfect for holidays and for those who enjoy the outdoor life, adventure sports and traveling. As a temporary solution for transporting leisure equipment, holiday luggage or simply a piece of flat pack furniture, the HandiRack is convenient, cost-effective and practical.


The HandiRack is perfect for when space in the car is at a premium, especially when used in combination with the HandiHoldall - HandiWorld's 320 litre waterproof easy to store, foldable roof bag.  At the end of a journey the HandiRack is simply deflated, stored in its travel drawstring bag and placed in the boot of the car pending further use. The HandiRack is immensely strong, totally safe and couldn't be easier to assemble. The straps pass through the car doors and the bars inflate in a matter of seconds using the supplied HandiPump. Two 3 metre HandiStraps are also supplied for securing loads to the 5 'D' ring anchor points located on each HandiRack.


The HandiRack can carry loads of up to 80kg (subject to individual vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations) and is suitable for most cars (with the exception of convertibles and cabriolets).

What weight can be transported on a HandiRack?

The total weight of your load should not exceed 80kg. We strongly advise that you consult your vehicle owner's manual as the manufacturer's recommended maximum load for the vehicle's roof may be less than the weight of the load.

How much does a HandiRack weigh?

Once removed from the display carton, the HandiRack together with the HandiStraps and HandiPump weighs 2.5kg. The dimensions of the travel bag with all the accessories and the HandiRack included are approximately 35cm L x 20cm W x 10cm D.

Will the HandiRack work on a 2-door car?

Yes it will if the car has rear opening quarter light windows or you can place both sets of bars across the front door.

Will the HandiRack affect the operation of the doors or windows?

Not at all. The doors and windows continue to operate normally.

How does the HandiRack attach to the car?

The HandiRack features a main fitting strap that goes through the inside of the car and secures in a heavy duty cam buckle on the HandiRack itself.

How do I securely anchor items to the HandiRack?

Each HandiRack features 5 metal 'D' ring anchor points. The 2 x 3m HandiStraps supplied with the HandiRack are then used to lash down items to the HandiRack using these 'D' ring anchor points.

Will the HandiRack puncture easily?

The HandiRack is immensely strong. The outer material is 400D nylon which is woven in our facility in Taiwan. The nylon is then laminated on the inside so the outer material has two layers of protection. The internal bladder which holds the air is separate to the outer material and so in effect, there are 3 layers of protection.

Will the handling of my car be altered with the HandiRack attached?

The HandiRack on its own will not alter the handling characteristics of a car. However, once a load is attached, the handling may be affected, requiring a reduction in speed and longer distances for braking. The car may also become susceptible to side winds.

Will my load be safe when driving at speed?

It is the user’s responsibility to ensure that all loads are securely tied-down. Items of equipment that may induce 'lifting forces' when travelling at speed such as boards or kayaks should also be secured to the front and rear of the vehicle using suitable bow & stern lines.

At what speed is it safe to drive at with the HandiRack attached to the car?

Up to 70 miles per hour / 112 kilometres per hour (subject to national speed limit restrictions).

Is there a danger of any water ingress in wet conditions?

We provide rain contingency guidelines within the instruction leaflet.

Will the HandiRack work on a car fitted with roof rails?

Yes, the HandiRack should always be fitted under the rails.

Can I leave the HandiRack on the car?

The HandiRack has been designed as a temporary roof carrying system and therefore should always be removed, deflated and stored when not in use.

Do ambient temperatures affect the pressure inside the HandiRack tubes?

As the HandiRack is air-filled, in warm conditions it is advisable to allow for the air within the tubes to expand a little. In colder conditions the opposite is the case. During the course of a journey, we recommend that the pressure of each tube is rechecked (as well as the security of the load).

Does the internal fitting strap impede the operation of airbags?

Only on certain vehicles fitted with curtain airbags.
