Roof Rack Industries Pty Ltd—SUBARU SA 098 Roof Bars and ROLA Roof Bars

Identifying features

N/A

What are the defects?

The Roof Bar is designed to anchor to the vehicle by way of securing metal straps or brackets "Straps". In product failure cases significant upward wind forces on the under-surface area of the carried loads have stretched or bent the Straps to the point where they detach from the roof of the vehicle. When this occurs there is potential for the Roof Bars and their load to separate from the vehicle during travel.

What are the hazards?

Mechanical malfunction

What should consumers do?

Return the current Straps to Roof Rack Industries for replacement with the modified replacement Straps at no cost to the consumer.
