INNO is Japan's premier car racks manufacturer, right up there with the best in every area of expertise. These Shadow boxes include two important innovations - see the Description tab for details:

  • the use of SPM plastic moulding technology for the bases - lighter, stiffer, stronger
  • a unique central locking system, the most sophisticated on the market

These are special, good looking boxes, technically very advanced.


INNO is Japan's premier car racks manufacturer, well known in international markets for their innovative designs and engineering, and for build quality which is right up there with the best. They work closely with the Japanese car manufacturers as well as having their own branded products.

What makes INNO roof boxes special?

The genuine innovation in these Shadow roof boxes is the use of SPM plastic moulding technology for the roof box bases; this creates a product that it lighter, stiffer and up to 50% stronger than is achieved with standard vacuum-forming. It also produces an all round silky smooth finish.

They also pioneered a sophisticated two stage central locking system, now picked up by some European manufacturers fior their premium boxes. The 3 box catches are released by pushing a button, and they stay released until the box is closed again. (INNO has a patent on this, which is why other systems are not quite as clever!) You can't push the button without unlocking the box, and (for safety and security) you can't remove the key until the box is properly closed again. Cheaper locking systems require you to use the key to move the whole locking system, to unlock and relock, which puts a strain on the whole system.

INNO’s 'Memory Mounting System' is particularly simple to use, and is adjustable to fit bars up to 90mm wide - which includes all the bars we sell. You only need to adjust the fittings the first time you use them – thereafter you push them through the waterproof slots in the base of the box, so the claw fittings are either side of the roof bar, and just close the cam lever. It's a one-handed operation, so you can hold onto the edge of the car with your other hand. These fittings are also very low profile, taking up minimal space in the box.

Other key features and specifications:

  • They open from both sides, so you can choose the position on the roof bars (depending e.g. on whether you are also carrying a bike) and to make for easier fitting and removal, loading and unloading
  • Spring struts for wide and easy opening and closing
  • ’Just pull to shut’ 3 point central locking – you cannot remove the key until the box is locked
  • 3 year guarantee
  • Weight 19kg empty, maximum load 50kg. Most EU manufacturers now get their boxes tested to 75kg if possible - there is a lot of competition in this market - but INNO have not yet retested
  • Takes 6-8 pairs of skis or 4-6 snowboards (max 180cm)

These are special, good looking boxes, technically very advanced. Although only a nominal 360 litres, their width and length allows us to load a similar amount of standard type baggage as we'd load into a 450 litre box. We have limited stock for the 2020 season, so please don't delay if you want one! When they are sold out we'll take them off the site, so as to not to disappoint other customers. INNO's supply chain has been badly disrupted by the corona crisis, and we won't have a resupply of INNO boxes until late autumn 2020 at the earliest.

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our Standard two to four day service is £6.50 (£11.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Express Delivery (one or two days) is £9.50 (£14.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (courier, usually Express Delivery).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Express Delivery need to be received by 2pm.

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday.

What about Next Working Day delivery? 
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express Delivery’.  Many Express Delivery orders will arrive on the next working day, but some will arrive on the second working day, or be split between these two days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can, and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.

Payment options:

We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".

Very few customers know much about the roof box market before they visit our site. We have a lot of information about the things to think about before buying, and the “real world usefulness" of various roof box features, but you’ll be buying sight unseen, and you probably won’t have used a roof box before, so there is inevitably some luck in getting a box that you’ll be happy with.

We want to remove the risks of buying these large and often expensive items, perhaps from brands which almost every other roof box retailer doesn’t stock, and so we have a unique “90 day Exchange Scheme” for roof boxes.

This allows you to use a roof box and, with the benefit of experience, to exchange it for a new one within 90 days of invoice date. Most exchanges are from a shorter box to a longer one, or from a wider box to a narrower one.

These are the rules of the Exchange Scheme:

  • You are allowed one exchange only.
  • The original box must be in "as new" condition, subject only to fair wear and tear.
  • The replacement box must be a different model.
  • The replacement box must not be part of a package deal or be from our Bargains section.
  • Roof bars are never part of the Exchange Scheme.

This is how the exchange scheme works:

  • We charge in full for the replacement box, including the appropriate carriage charge and a charge for any packaging needed for the return of the original.
  • We arrange the collection and pay the return carriage costs.
  • When the original box arrives back here we refund you for the invoice value of the original box, but you won't get back more than the invoice value of the replacement box. In other words, if the replacement is cheaper than the original we won't be giving you "extra cash back".

Please note: we can only collect items from mainland UK.
