I recently bought a set of whips are for my 2002 Honda Civic. The sales person at Backcountry failed to inform me that I would need the Mighty Mount Clips too. So I called back and ordered the clips. Again the sales person failed to tell me that the clips would not work with my Yakima Raptor bike carrier to where the bikes could ride going forward on the car. I had to send them back and order the universal mounts to make it work right. This delayed me using my roof rack for almost five weeks. I have not been pleased with advice received from Backcountry.
