You asked, we listened! Sportube has partnered with 1-UP USA to create Sportube specific lockable Roof Rack Brackets. Currently available for Series 1 and Series 2. Series 3 coming soon.

Includes: Two Sportube Brackets and parts, 3/16" Allen Key, 1 Quick Release Pin

Assembly Includes:
U-Brackets, Post Assembly, Bottom Clamps, 5/16-18 Fastener, Post Lock, and Tension Handle

To Install:

1. Position the post assembly so the two 5/16-18 fasteners are on each side of the cross bars.

2. Using the included Allen key, tighten the bottom clamp and post assembly together.
- Be sure that the metal side faces down
- Repeat for second bracket

3. Position Sportube on the cross bars so it is tight against the post assembly.
- The front post assembly MUST fall between the two handles of the Sportube

4. Slide U-bracket's onto post assembly

5. Slide post lock through the holes found on the post assembly and U-bracket and tighten lock into place.
- Use tension handle on top to tighten the U-bracket down on the Sportube

To Remove:

1. Loosen the tension handle
2. Loosen the post lock and pin
3. Remove U-Bracket off of post assembly
- It is safe to leave your post assembly on your roof racks if you like and only remove the pin, lock and U-brackets.

You can use the same post assembly for both Series 1 Sportube and Series 2 Sportube, however, the U-brackets are not interchangeable.

Highland Trading Company customer service January 27, 2019
Reviewer: JimH from Spokane Valley, WA United States  
The roof rack brackets for my Series ski SporTube  was my second purchase from Highland Trading Company. Unfortunately, the roof brackets would not work with my existing ski rack. There was simply not enough room on the roof rack to accommodate both units. Highland Trading Company agreed without hesitation to allow me to return the unused brackets, with a full refund of the purchase price, consistent with their 30-day return policy. They were very understanding when I called to inquire about the return, and helpful in arranging for a credit to my account.

Sport tube roof Rack January 20, 2019
Reviewer: Philip Waakea from Zeeland, MI United States  
They worked as they said they would.  Might be a little easier to mount if the Allen boots were a touch longer

Great simple quality product! January 2, 2019
Reviewer: Austin Divino from Austin, TX United States  
We purchased two of these and the setup and use was very simple.  A great quality product that I would buy again if I had another tube to carry on the roof!!!

Bracket Issue December 15, 2018
Reviewer: Melissa Steffen from The Hills, TX United States  
I called before ordering to ensure the brackets would fit my Teraflex Nebo roof rack.   I was told they fit all roof racks.  I ordered & did not mount until leaving for my ski trip.  The parts that mount on the roof rack bars were too short.  I could not get the top/bottom screwed together securely without modifying my slat by denting it on one side to allow screws to align.  :(  I probably would’ve sent back except I was getting on the road that day.

Sportstube 1 and brackets make X-country ski rack September 1, 2017
Reviewer: Dan Bernstein from STUDIO CITY, CA United States  
Mounting the sportstube 1 on Thulen bars works great to carry my x-c shaking skis to the snow. Once I learned the set up, installation and removal is quick. The Sportstube support was easy to reach and very helpful.
