The Knotix Is a Roof Rack That Fits Inside Your Trunk When Your Trip Is Over

If your car doesn’t come with a roof rack, installing one can be daunting, if not time-consuming. You want to make sure this permanent fixture on your vehicle is there to stay no matter what the weather or road conditions have in mind. But what if it didn’t have to be permanent? And what if you could take it on and off at will?

That’s what the minds behind the Knotix were thinking with their new eponymous roof rack, a fixture that can fit on any standard 4-door vehicle and be either installed or removed in just 20 seconds. Combining both mechanical and magnetic locking systems, the Knotix stays put no matter how off-the-road you go. Likewise, whether your door is opening or closing, the roof rack keeps itself locked in place with the ability to hold up to 330lbs of cargo and withstand speeds up to 125mph.

No more leaving your roof rack on top of your car when you’re driving to a nice dinner or fancy event. Extending up to 50″ long, the Knotix also folds down to 23″ to fit effortlessly inside your trunk when you’re not using it. And when you’re ready for your weekend getaway or day trip, just take out the device, place it where you’d like on top, and then clamp it under your doorway for a nice, lean fit for your luggage, bike, surfboard, or what have you. What’s more, the built-in wheels underneath prevent the rack from making any scratches on the paint or leaving any marks.

Make your next trip much easier with the Knotix, available now through Kickstarter for the $299 early-bird discount.
