Package deal: KAMEI Oyster 450 gloss black roof box no. KM391 and bars

£679.95
RRP:
Code: KM391-P

The Oyster 450 in gloss black is in KAMEI's top end range, designed for enduring good looks and optimum functionality - it's a big box despite its nominal 450 litres. It's classically styled, with the unique feature that the "eye-line" in the base of the lid follows not only the front to back shape of a modern car roof, but also its side to side curvature.

Note that it's only designed for fitting to T-track aluminium bars - in other words it will not fit to square bars.

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 and box packages provide everything you need, including locks for the roof bars and adapters for the roof box that are usually sold at extra cost.


This superb box and bars package deal provides everything you need for a fixed price, including locking roof bars. All you need to do is to click on "Add to basket and choose bars" 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 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 started out as a car styling company and this pedigree is built into their top-end Oyster 450 roof box. It's designed for enduring good looks and optimum functionality - it's a big box despite its nominal 450 litres. It's classically styled, with the unique feature that the "eye-line" in the base of the lid follows not only the front to back shape of a modern car roof, but also its side to side curvature.

The innovative ClickFix mounting system allows you to fit the box to T-track aluminium roof bars in seconds - note that you can only fit the Oyster to T-track aluminium bars - in other words it will not fit to square bars, at least not unless different fittings are purchased and modifications made.

Fitting is very easy: Place the box where you want it on the bars, slide the fittings so that they are centred over the slot in the top of each aluminium bar, and flip each ClickFix lever from one side to the other. The system works with all T-track profiles that we know about, including the wider BMW bars, but note that if you are using Thule's Evo WingBars you should not fit the rubber strips in the area where the ClickFix is located.

The Oyster uses KAMEI's ingenious central locking system, which has all the benefits of central locking without any of the potential drawbacks:

The box is unlocked with a quarter key turn, but locked again just by pulling the box shut. Big deal? Actually, yes. Almost all other central locking systems have a big drawback when it comes to closing the box, because you need to turn the key in the lock at the same time as holding down both the front and the rear of the box – which is a three handed operation if the lid is being held up by bulky gear, or if the base is sagging due to incorrect loading or weakness.

The KAMEI system has three catches and three hinges, for extra security. And you can’t take the key out of the lock until the box is properly shut. It's a really neat system.

  • 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.
  • This Duolift box opens from either the left or the right hand side, making it very easy to fix to roof bars (no stretching into the box is needed), as well as providing full choice about where you position it, depending e.g. on what else you are carrying on the roof.
  • The DuoLift system includes a patented Stabilus gas strut system 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.
  • 6 year guarantee.
  • Dimensions: 206cm (L) x 95cm (W) x 36cm (H) (internal 194 x 85 x 30)
  • Includes an anti-slip base mat.
  • Weight 21kg empty, maximum load 75kg, gross loading limit 96kg.

About KAMEI

They're a specialist box manufacturer, Quality Assured to ISO 9001, represented in over 40 countries, with numerous Best Buy awards over the years, including the last 6 consecutive Auto Express "Best Buy" awards!

With their innovative and intelligent designs, top quality materials and engineering, and outstanding build quality, it's no surprise that KAMEI are Original Equipment box suppliers to several major manufacturers, including Audi, Mercedes-Benz and VW. And their boxes have the longest guarantee of any manufacturer in the car rack systems sector - 6 years!

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".
