All our products feature a non-abrasive plastic liner on the inside of the aluminum tubes, which will protect your fly rods from getting scuffed and rattled while traveling rooftop in your Rod Vault.
The Classic Rod Vault reel housing is manufactured using an insanely tough reinforced nylon polymer and will accommodate reels up to an 8 weight (4 inch diameter) and rods up to 10 feet in length. The reel housing also features an industrial strength locking system that comes with two keys.
Security For Your Gear
The reinforced nylon clamps not only offer a strong and effective way of attaching your Classic Rod Vault Fly rooftop fly rod carrier unit to the cross members of your roof rack mounting system, but they are also built so you can lock the clamps to your cross members by using a small padlock (not included).
At Denver Outfitters our rooftop fly rod holders deliver style, performance and the added convenience of being able to rig up your rods the night before your trip, put them in your Classic Rod Vault, lock it down, and get on the water faster. Or better yet keep your rods and reels ready to go all year long for fishing at a moments notice!
No more snags on car upholstery, broken fly rods, damaged reels, or wasted time on the river bank rigging up your gear.It’s time to make the most of your fishing days – you’ve earned it!
The only tools necessary to mount the Rod Vault are 1/4”, and 4mm hex or Allen wrenches. We also strongly recommend using the BLUE locktite on the mounting bolts.
The roof rack crossbars to which the Rod Vault can be mounted can be up to 3.5” wide and up to 1.5” thick. In addition, the separation between the crossbars should be no less than 27”. Some vehicles like newer model Toyota 4runners will need a “lift kit” (sold separately) since their factory crossbars sit very low. The lift kit allows the Rod Vault to be lifted slightly so the reel housing does not hit the roof of the vehicle.
