DESCRIPTION: The purpose of this project is to make it easier to load and unload athletic equipment onto vehicles that have an existing roof rack. The user will be able to pull the rack down from the top of the vehicle to an ergonomically friendly height, load the equipment, and then swing it back to the top of the vehicle. The rack will never detach from the vehicle and will provide a smooth motion.
