The Saddlebag Car Clips allow you to use the patented Cargo Saddlebag on vehicles without a roof rack. Add the clips to the side straps of the Saddlebag and attach them to the gap between the vehicle's roof and the rear hatch door. The coating on the metal hooks prevents any damage to the vehicle. Many of today's vehicles are produced with low profile side rails, no cross bars or without roof racks altogether. The Saddlebag Car Clips let you enjoy the use of a great product, even on these vehicles.
