Default after market roof rack

I'm considering installing a roof rack myself on a 2010 CR-V. I
haven't decided whether I want a combo roof rack (rail and cross bars)
or just the cross bars. Regardless, how do you install these? I
saw the roof has 2 black plastic strips which some plastic tabs or
covers that look like they are to be removed to install these racks.
Is this correct and how do you safely remove these things? I'm still
looking for instructions for this but any tips?

Check out this thread. I googled it using "2010 honda cr-v roof rack
installation", and this is the second hit. It looks like it might be a
better site to answer questions about your vehicle.

Thanks Dan. I just found this and then went to HandA-Accessories.com
to see an instruction how to do this. Here's the added link in case
others like myself need it...

Appreciate the quick help Dan. Thanks.

If you have to ask in a newsgroup how to install it, you're over your
head! Pay a pro to do it and save screwing up your nice new car...

I thought that's what a newsgroup was for???
Anyway I am hesitant now because I want to use it for loading some
lumber but I want to know first what the design capacity is for each
cross member. No sense getting into the installation if it won't
serve it's purpose. I won't need to carry it much ( 5 miles at
around 25 to 30 mph).
