    Has anyone found a quick, secure, DIY method for mounting traction boards to the factory roof rack cross bars?

    I was leaning that way or bungee cords. Didn't know if anyone had messed around and found a more secure DIY option

    I ended up using one zip tie and 4 bungee cords. The bungees are the kind with the ball attached that you wrap the cord around. It worked out. Didn’t take any pics because I didn’t think it was that exciting
