    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    After putting the rack on the car grab each load bar one at a time and rock the car. Is it solid? did the tower pop off? did it make you feel better? Good.

    After installing, I ALWAYS check the fit to make sure the towers and bars won't be moving. I rock the vehicle side-to-side and also attempt to slide the towers forwards or backwards. If, after that, they stay put, I am confident they won't cause me trouble.

    But to be safe, I always do a quick check whenever putting anything on the roof. I don't want to be that guy who loses a bike on the freeway because the rack failed.
