hi
just a quick question for the knowlegeable on here ,

i was out this afternoon to pick mine and a friends snowboards up for a trip to tignes at the weekend and it occured to me having put the roof bars and snowboard carrier on along with my bike rack containing my beloved Orange five pro mountain bike do the roof bars lock on in any way ?
I mean i conservativley estimate there was £5k of gear on the top of the car and i may be missing it but i couldnt see why anyone with the audi roof bar tool couldnt just unscrew my bars and lift the lot !!!
the only thing i can think of is the tool is unique like yourlocking wheel bolts so the question is are the unique or if not does anyone have a solution ?

all the best led1968

spoke to audi its a bit of both ' the ratchet is like locking wheel bolts but there are only 20 combinations so the likelihood of yours being pinched is low ' the guy told me reassuring eh

Thanks for the info. Led1968 I was wondering the same thing myself...

Not that my topbox costs that much, but I still don't want it nicked...
