Top Line Manufacturing, a leading supplier of RV,
truck and bike accessories based in Paramount, CA., has introduced the
new Melrose Rack. This groundbreaking system actually disappears, leaving
your rooftop clean and smooth.
Have you driven around town recently and noticed a conventional rack system
on one’s car without any bikes or kayaks on top? More than likely the
answer is yes. That’s because conventional roof racks are so difficult
to install and remove, that one just ends up leaving it on. Not only does
your formerly “close to zero drag” vehicle now have a lot of
drag and wind noise, you are actually getting worse gas mileage on the road
with that bulky thing on your rooftop. The Melrose Rack goes on in minutes,
and then when you’ve unloaded your toys, literally disappears in minutes.
You may ask yourself, how is this possible? Well, the engineering team at
Top Line has created this revolutionary system comprised of four tiny pads
(1/4” high) which permanently attach to the rooftop of any vehicle
and four towers that snap onto the pads.
The towers will hold either a round or a square bar, meaning it’s completely
compatible with Yakima or Thule products. Simply unlock with the provided
key, lift the release on the tower, and the catch will disconnect from the
attached pad. Your towers and crossbars go on and off in seconds, and you
can leave your rack intact to hang in your garage so you can quickly mount
it for your next adventure. With the rack removed, only the tiny pads are
left, keeping your car looking like the car designer intended it to look...sleek
