What are the defects?

The kit's bolts are too small and may result in the kit not being properly secured to the roof of the vehicle. This may cause the kit and any items attached to it to become detached from the roof.

What are the hazards?

If the roof rack or any items attached to it detaches from the vehicle, there is an increased risk of an accident and injury to the vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should stop using their Fixpoint XT Kit and remove it from their vehicle.
