The market is full of the roof baskets for sale and where this is a good thing, this could be overwhelming as well because there could be number of things that could go wrong in the purchasing of the roof racks if you do not know that which kind of the roof rack will fit to your car because not every roof rack is meant for your car because of the different methods of attachment used in the cars. There are four categories of the roof rack and in order to choose the one you must know about these types.
Raised and solid rails for roof racks:
There are two types in the nudge bars Australia. One is the raised roof rails and the second is the solid roof rails. Both of these are common with the SUV and in estate cars. In the raised roof bars the roof racks rails raised from the roof of the car and there is significance gap between the top of the car and the rail and this is why these are called raised. Although this is optional in some models but in some other models it is always installed. The other kind of the roof bars which are solid roof bars usually come already installed in the car models which came after 2006. These roof rails are attached with the roof and there is no gap between like the raised roof bar.
Roof racks installation for the cars coming with the fixed point:
There are some cars in which there are no roof rails installed but there are only some fixed points in the car. This fixed point could either be on the roof or could be in the door and is used for attaching the roof rack. There are at least four fixed points in each car whether it is a hatch, estate or and MPV. These fixed points are usually hidden away by the manufacturer so that these do not disturb the aesthetic of the car when these are not in use. A small plastic cover is usually used to hide these points and whenever the user needs to install the roof rack then he will remove these plastic caps and will install the roof rack using these fixed points to attach these to the perfect roof racks in Australia. In some car cases, these fixed points are so well hidden that it becomes quite a task to figure these out.
Although if the car does not have any of the above for installation of the roof rack then it must need to have the door jamb. In this type the roof rack is clamped to the door of the car.
