    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.

    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
