..... the strap through the doors as a rack failure back up . This final strap is in additiuon to the regular straps and ropes which attach to the rack , and the bumpers .

Not through the windows ... the strap goes through the interior (buckle inside) , and the doors close on the strap . the strap exterior is wrapped around a canoe seat (canoe upside down) , and never even touches the rack .

When I started doing this , I immediately felt better about the security , and still do . I figure this back up strap will be the last to blow in a collision or unexpected rack failure ... who knows ?? Hope it's never needed and hope I don't ever have to find out how well it works !!
