trimmer on my roof rack?

I own a few properties and maintain them myself... I need to transport my string trimmer on my roof rack.

Anybody have a safe, secure solution? Ideally it would be lockable...

roof rack is Thule w/ rectangular load bars.


I don't really want to run around with a cargo box if I don't have to, and I don't want the trimmer inside my vehicle for a variety of reasons.


thanks

Ski or snowboard mounts would probably work.

yeah I actually considered those. I have a pair of Thule lockable ones laying around.
Trouble is, they're ugly and they're like little air dams sitting up there --- they can be loud and tend to sap the fuel econ.

I'm after something a little lower profile and more discreet

thanks
