Rivian Cargo Crossbars Installation and Removal Guide

To start installing the crossbars on your Rivian, adjust their width by extending them over the designated slots on your vehicle. Once adjusted, lift the latch on the crossbar and place it securely into the slot, ensuring it clicks into position. Center the crossbar within the slot and press the latch down until you hear a second click, indicating it's firmly attached. Repeat these steps for the other end of the crossbar to ensure a secure installation.

Then, push the crossbar paddle down to cover the lock cylinder completely. Repeat this process for all crossbar ends to ensure they are fully locked and secured.


When it's time to remove the Rivian crossbars, simply push up the crossbar paddle to access the lock. Unlock the crossbar using the key, then carefully lift the crossbars from the accessory ports. Repeat this process for all crossbar ends, ensuring a safe and efficient removal process.
