Package deal: KAMEI KM347 Delphin 340K box, gloss black, (LEFT opening) and bars

£344.95
RRP:
Code: KM347-P

We've always liked KAMEI's Delphin range – they’re the preferred choice of all our staff here. No frills, but they have the strongest locking system on the market, are very user friendly, seem to last for ever, never go wrong, win product tests, and keep looking good when other more obviously styled boxes look a bit weird even 3 years up the line.

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" and 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 Yakima (Whispbar), but the savings on buying the components individually are huge. We're confident that you won't find such good value anywhere else.

KAMEI makes the best quality boxes on the market. Don't just take our word for it! They're a specialist box manufacturer, 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!

The Delphin 340 uses the same aerofoil base as the award winning Corvara 390K, but has a different shaped lid, different locks and different fittings. It certainly seems bigger than its stated 340 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! For more information, see the Tab "What does volume really mean?" In summary, KAMEI tend to underestimate their box volumes, but most other manufacturers tend to swing the other way.

You should be able to fit 2 bike carriers next to it, no problem if you use 120cm (Thule) or 122cm (Atera) aerobars.

KAMEI makes a virtue of the 'Click' and 'Push button' locking system used in this box: Boxes with central locking can be awkward to close, especially on taller vehicles, and when stuffed full. You need to hold the box tightly closed at the front, at the middle, and at the rear, and turn the key; this often requires two people. With a Delphin box you pull down on one end of the box until it clicks shut, then pull down on the other end, and then push the locks in and cover them with their weatherproof flaps.

  • Made from top quality 'DUROKAM', an ABS plastic developed by KAMEI to optimise weight, stability and impact resistance. If you'd like to see a sample of this plastic, to see the colour and feel the quality, please click here. We'll post a 10cm x 10cm square by 1st Class post, free of charge to UK addresses only. It will make a very good coaster but in any event we hope that you'll appreciate the quality differences between Durokam and the run of the mill material that is used in most roof boxes you'll see on UK roads.
  • Wind tunnel development as well as TÜV and GS (security) testing and approval.
  • Opens from the left hand side.
  • 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 U-bolts to accommodate roof bars up to 83mm wide x 32mm deep; these will fit around all the bars we sell except for Whispbars. Don't worry, our Package Deals include the relevant T-track adapters (automatically; free of charge) when aluminium roof bars are selected.
  • 6 year guarantee.

    This season we are offering a free roof box hoist to give you a superb deal. Boxes are bulky items so the ideal place to store them is above your car in the garage, or perhaps in a shed. Many people will leave the box attached to the bars, and also use the box for storage.

    If you don't need a box hoist, our alternative gift is a set of 3 Fasty straps - 0.5m, 1.5m and 3.0m. Although of much less financial value they will be useful for 1,001 things, time and again. (Note that only one box hoist or one set of straps will be included per roof box ordered!)

    If you're ordering this roof box as part of a Package Deal, you will select your free gift once you've chosen your roof bars.


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".

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".

If you want to exchange a box that was purchased as part of a package deal, the scheme works in exactly the same way. Please note that the roof bars in package deals will be invoiced at the full “Our Price” that was advertised at the time of order, with the box representing the difference between the package deal price and the roof bars. Package deal roof boxes are often invoiced at a very substantial discount to the cost of buying that box on its own, so it’s likely that you’ll need to pay a bit extra if you want to exchange for a box that is normally the same price as the one you’re trading in.

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

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 two to three day service is £5.50 (£9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is £8.50 (£12.50 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 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).

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 Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.

There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.

We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. 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.

No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. 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.

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".
