Foam blocks for car top

My SUV has no roof racks :-( Should I just get those Foaml blocks and the tiedown straps? If yes, do you reccommend a specific brand or style.

W/ no roof racks that is probably your best option.....

I used them with my canoe (17+ ft Old Towne) with 1" ratcheting-type straps and it worked fine. The were light blue and fit right around the gunnels.

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.

JohnnyD suggested using cut sections of pool noodles a while back. I used them last year with heavy duty ratchet straps and had no problems at all. At about $3 for one that can be cut in half, it's a lot cheaper than those foam blocks and works great.

Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them tools at their disposal that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. - Marco Rubio
