The long side straps measure 101″L from where they leave the bag to their ends. The short side straps measure 18″L from where they leave the bag to where they attach to the female buckles. So, the distance that the straps can extend above the cargo bag is just under 5’.
Some vehicles have roof racks that are mounted forward from the rear of the vehicle. In this case, the Car Back Carrier may need to be suspended above the bumper for its straps to reach the roof rack. This higher mounting does not present any problems as long as the driver’s rear view is not completely blocked by the carrier. If your vehicle’s roof rack is too far forward, you can use the Rear Car Clips to attach the carrier to the rear hatch door.
Do I Need A Trailer Hitch To Attach The Lower Straps?
No. The lower straps can be attached around, below or behind the vehicle’s bumper. Usually, the part of the vehicle’s frame that extends to the bumper is a great place to attach the straps.
