Re: Hickey Roof Rack

I installed mine on my single wall top with threaded nutserts. I can install or remove the rack very quickly. When the rack is off, the holes in the threaded nutserts are sealed by re-installing the bolts into the nutserts. I use a little Teflon thread sealant paste on the bolt treads to seal out moisture.

Re: Hickey Roof Rack

I think they are 7/16" fine thread nutserts. I will check. My top is currently hanging in my garage, so getting good pictures will be difficult but I will try.
