Rightline Gear Replacement Car Clips
In August 2017, Rightline Gear updated the design of our popular Car Clips. These coated metal hooks attach to the end of the Rightline Gear Car Top Carrier attachment straps and secure the Carrier to a vehicle without a roof rack. The Car Clips hook under the door frame weather molding and the vehicle’s door closes over the Clips/attachment straps.
The new shape of the Car Clips makes their attachment to the vehicle easier and provides a better fit for the Clips under the vehicle’s door. The change in the Car Clip’s design does away with our previous tip page Rightline Gear Car Clips – Proper Fit.
We have changed the name of this product from Car Clips to Replacement Car Clips, 100600 . The reason for this change is that Car Clips are now included with all Rightline Gear Car Top Carriers!
Our customers can use their Rightline Gear Car Top Carrier on multiple vehicles, with or without a roof rack, straight out of the box. If you have a Rightline Gear Car Top Carrier that was originally used on a vehicle with a roof rack, you can still purchase our Replacement Car Clips to use the Carrier on a vehicle without a roof rack!
Because the product number, 100600, remains the same for the Replacement Car Clips, many of our retailers’ websites have kept customer reviews that were given for the previous model Car Clips. These reviews may or may not accurately reflect the new version of the Car Clips. We always strive to keep improving our products, no matter how well they have performed for our customers!
Any tips on how to eliminate the wind noise caused by weather stripping being pulled by the car clips? Going over 60 mph and it sounds like a wind tunnel in the front seats. Is it a matter of placement?
Hi Kerry. Please ensure the Car Clips are attached to your vehicle’s door frame weather molding correctly. You can reference Fig 12 from our Sport Set Up Guide here: https://rightlinegear.com/sport-car-top-carrier-directions.pdf. If you are experiencing noise while driving, we recommend loosening the straps, re-positioning them slightly, and re-tightening the straps. Please also make sure your Carrier is packed as full as possible to give it shape. Using extra blankets/pillows/towels can help fill the Carrier if your belongings don’t fill it completely.
Do you have clips that fit a 2007 Mazda 3 sedan (not a hatchback)?
Hi Peggy. The Car Clips included with all of our Car Top Carriers will work with your Mazda 3. These Clips are also available as an accessory, and their part number is 100600. If you have any additional detailed questions please give us a call at 888.685.GEAR.
Hello! I just ordered a Rightline Gear 100S10 Sport 1 Car Top Carrier from amazon.ca In the item’s description, it says that the car clips are not included. Is the description just incorrect? If the clips are NOT included, where in Canada can I purchase the Sport 1 with the car clips already included, and/or an extra set of car clips (I realize amazon.ca sells the car clips also, but I need them right away and they won’t arrive in time.) Thanks!
Hello. You can purchase Car Clips from any of the Canadian Dealers listed on our “Where To Buy” page here: http://www.rightlinegear.com/where-to-buy.html
