Package deal: KAMEI KM329 Husky L box, black, (LEFT opening) and bars

0
RRP:
discontinued

The KAMEI Husky L includes all the essential attributes of any KAMEI box - good looks, ease of use, top quality mouldings, excellent security, wide opening on gas struts, safety tests that are up with the best, but all the non-essential items are of a cheaper specification, giving a useful saving on what you'd normally expect to pay for KAMEI quality.

This package deal is only available at this "from price" if CRUZ has steel roof rail bars for your vehicle (CRUZ has bars for most vehicles), but we're also offering packages with our other bar brands, at higher prices but with even bigger savings.

All our roof bars packages provide everything you need. All you need to do is to click on "Select box", then choose your car to see the options and the savings.

This superb box and bars package deal provides everything you need for a fixed price, including locking roof bars and a roof box storage device or a useful set of straps. All you need to do is to click on "Select box" to place your order; we'll then show you which roof bars are available. You'll pay more for aluminium than steel, and you'll pay more for Atera, Thule, or Whispbar, but the savings on buying the components individually are huge. We're confident that you won't find such good value anywhere else.

The KAMEI Husky L includes all the essential attributes of any KAMEI box - good looks, ease of use, top quality mouldings, excellent security, wide opening on gas struts, safety tests that are up with the best, but all the non-essential items are of a cheaper specification, giving a useful saving on what you'd normally expect to pay for KAMEI quality.

The Husky seems bigger than its stated 330 litres of capacity, thanks to its low profile reinforcing ribs and fittings, and a lid that's an optimum shape for load carrying. Certainly it's amazing how much you can stuff into it!

KAMEI makes a virtue of the 'Click' and 'Push button' locking system used in this box, enabling you to stuff it fuller than you might think is possible. You close one end and then the other, pulling down at each end until the black "Click" button holds the box shut, then you push the locks in and cover them with a weatherproof flap. Each lock drives a bolt from the lid into the base; this is fundamentally a stronger system than central locking systems can achieve.

Other specifications:

  • Made from top quality 'DUROKAM', an ABS plastic developed by KAMEI to optimise weight, stability and impact resistance.
  • Wind tunnel development as well as TÜV and GS (security) testing and approval (to the latest version of DIN 75 302 / ISO 11154).
  • Stabilus gas struts for wide and easy opening and closing.
  • Sliding box to bar fittings so there’s never a need to drill new holes if the distance between your roof bars is non standard.
  • This box comes with T-track adapters which slide into the slots in the top of aluminium roof bars (including all the aluminium bars we sell), and also with U-bolts (M8 thread) which fit around bars up to 83mm wide x 32mm deep. It always makes sense to use T-track adapters with aluminium roof bars, because these allow you to position the box anywhere on the full length of the bars, they produce a much smarter look (no bits of metal visible below the roof bar) and it's a more aerodynamic fitting system. T-track adapters also allow you to push the box further back or forward than is possible with U-bolts - which can be important if there's a potential clash with a fully opened tailgate. And T-track adapters also provide more flexibility in roof box positioning than claw style fittings (this is the type which grabs around the roof bars and is tightened with a turning wheel inside the box) - this is because claw fittings should not be used in the area of the roof bar feet (these fittings will touch the feet before they are tight enough on the bars) so you may not be able to position the box just where you want it. Claw fittings also limit front to back positioning. This is why KAMEI includes standard T-track adapters (which are an extra cost for all other brands of roof box) and does not use claw style fittings.
  • 6 year guarantee.
  • Weight 13kg empty, maximum load 50kg, gross loading limit 63kg.

Who are KAMEI? They're a German company, based in Wolfsburg near the VW factory, who make the best quality boxes on the market. Don't just take our word for it! They're Quality Assured to ISO 9001, represented in over 40 countries, and have won numerous awards over the years, including the last six Auto Express "Best Buy" awards! The 2014 award was given to the KAMEI 510. With their innovative and intelligent designs, top quality materials and engineering, and outstanding build quality, it's no surprise that they are Original Equipment box suppliers to several major manufacturers, including Audi, Mercedes-Benz and VW. And KAMEI boxes have the longest guarantee of any manufacturer in the car rack systems sector - 6 years!


A good question. It's not easy to convince customers that a 330 or 340 or 390 litre KAMEI box is in practical terms as large as a 480 litre Thule box, even if they have seen the boxes side by side, and the cartons (see pictures above). Now an influential German motoring web site has provided us with more evidence, which is that KAMEI's Corvara 390K was 3.8% smaller than advertised, but the Thule Dynamic 800, a stated 420 litres, came out at 274 litres, a 34.7% exaggeration!

The Atlantis 780 is said to be 480 litres, 23% larger than the Corvara 390...

See the "exaggeration" table above, the second last picture, as well as a Google translation.

Auto-Presse also report that the KAMEI Husky L and Delphin 470 boxes are larger than their stated volumes. None of this surprises us - KAMEI is a family business which takes pride in doing things properly. "Made in Germany".

 KAMEI delphin-Husky roof box spare parts

Item: Description: Our price (each): RRP:

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.

These are our standard charges; there are usually surcharges for all offshore destinations and some remote postcodes, especially for Very Heavy Items (defined below):

    Orders involving a roof box, and Very Heavy Items

    • Standard delivery (3 to 5 working days) = £14.50
    • Express delivery (1 to 3 working days) and Very Heavy Items = £19.50

    AutoSock, and items which are small enough to be posted, e.g. small spare parts

    • Standard delivery (3 to 5 working days) = £4.95
    • Express delivery (1 to 3 working days) = £6.95

    All other products

    • Standard delivery (3 to 5 working days) = £6.50
    • Express delivery (1 to 3 working days) = £9.50

All orders for Express delivery need to be received by 1pm.

    Very Heavy Items

    Roof tents and some other items that are very heavy or unusually large are, for safer and more careful handling, best carried by two people.

    Very Heavy Items are delivered via the ArrowXL 2-person delivery service. All other products that are part of the same order will usually also be delivered by ArrowXL, at the same time as the Very Heavy Item.

    Please note that deliveries from ArrowXL need to be signed for, e.g. by a neighbour if you are not at home, or you can have the goods delivered to a different address.

    There is a £25 surcharge for Very Heavy Item deliveries to the Grampian area, Scottish Highlands, any GB delivery including a sea crossing, and Northern Ireland. There is a £50 surcharge for Very Heavy Item deliveries to the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands and the Republic of Ireland. Deliveries to all these places will take longer than normal, sometimes much longer - delivery timings are indicated in the Shopping Basket.


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 (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

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’. Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next or second working day, but some will arrive on the second or third working day, or be split between these 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.
