Re: Roof top sign on a glass roof!!

Hi
Whether you find one or not, I would warn you not to rely on the suckers only to hold it in place.

Before the days of magnetic signs we used to use sucker feet but always had gutter clamps as well; now I know we no longer have gutters but there are, on most cars, places where roof boxes/racks can be fastened and I would suggest that you will need something like a Thule (other makes are available) roof rack clamp each side.

Put the roof box on ebay and get some magnetic signs for the door

Re: Roof top sign on a glass roof!!

Magnetic L plates, are all you need .
I haven't used a roof box for 8 years .
I use two upvc L plates that I bought from rcm marketing ,although they don't appear to sell anymore .
Rear is held on with 4 small powerful magnets and the front in a spring clip .

Re: Roof top sign on a glass roof!!

My husband has a Renault Megane with a massive sun roof and the problem of the car aerial antenna preventing a roofbox fitting on the remaining metal area of the roof. He got round the issue by replacing the aerial with a short stubby one and cutting a hole in the base plate of his roofbox. The roofbox now fits nicely on the metal area of the roof covering the stumpy little aerial completely. Not saying it's the right solution for everyone, but it worked in his case smile

Re: Roof top sign on a glass roof!!

Loopy Lou had the right idea, our honda civic with glass roof just about managed to fit one on, but most others shorten the ariel - paid of plyers on your existing) and a small hole in the bottom of the sign smile

Re: Roof top sign on a glass roof!!

I was in the retailing sector of the motor trade for over 22 years and various roof racks and similar devices were sold. I would NEVER EVER rely on suckers, please take my advice, I have had numerous incidents where the suckers alone would fail.

I cannot imagine a company would make such devices relying purely on suction.

Re: Roof top sign on a glass roof!!

There are suckers strong enough for the job, unfortunately those that keep failing on our dual mirrors don't even come close to the Chinese Imported sat nav windscreen mounts that could probably be used to lift the car off the ground. Glazing companies (and presumably their insurance underwriters) trust suction mounts to crane expensive sheets of glass to the upper floors of buildings. I remember many years ago when the AA rolled out there final roof box design (magnetic base), being told that it had been tested at 110mph at Fords proving ground, I am sure there are suction mounts that could that could improve on that.
