A little trick to make installation faster is to put a little mark on your bars with a pencil where the feet go. Mine hasn't faded away in over 6 months despite lots of rain and washes. Now I know exactly where the feet go on each side and I can have them installed in a matter of minutes. No measuring required!

I'm late to the part, I know, but the one thing I wanted to know (not covered in your video) is *where* to place the bars along the factory rails.
Everything else is pretty self-obvious (open lid, tighten 5mm allen bolt, etc); knowing the distance back from windshield the front bar should be placed, and the distance between the bars, is the one piece of information that is purely guesswork and would've been helpful to include.

(Translation: If you still have the manual, or remember, let me know. :))
