20 Most Recent Yakima Fat Cat 6 Ski and Snowboard Rack Questions & Answers

sounds like a pressure issue ( binding problem ) --- when you go to lock the locks ( with the skis and/or snowboard on rack ) try and push down hard on the rack while you turn the locks,, this might get the pressure off enough to allow the lock cams to pass. if this does not work then the next thing to do is to file down and modify the lock cams so they turn easier without binding. if you do not have the tools to do this modification then you can always go down to your local locksmith shop ( with the skis/snowboard on the rack ) and have them do the modifications -- the shop will only charge you around 10 to 15 dollars for this service.
I hope this helps,

Ski and snowboarding gloves come in different sizes (from x-small-XXL) depending on the glove itself (gender, company, etc). Some gloves have more sizes to choose from, while others have less.

You can buy ski and snowboarding gloves at the main manufacturers' store (ie. The North Face) and other local stores, as well as online in many different websites such as: http://www.backcountry.com/ski-gloves.

There are two main types of ski gloves: mittens and traditional gloves. Mittens are warmer than gloves, while traditional gloves allow you to move your fingers more easily.
