Good point, it does look like it wraps around the top a little possibly limiting the load on the gutters themselves

Interesting- wouldn't you think the product was tested before sold.
I have no idea what that thing is but
I would guess it mounts to the gutters but does not put all it's load on them ??

Thule Gutter mount rack on Freedom Top

Anyone with experience using these mounts for the bars? They clamp onto the avaiable rain gutters. I have used them on cars with metal gutters and the car did fine. I have read drilling for the Yakima rack can be bad, therefore the question. Thanks.
