Roof Center Slats - anyone installed them?

Other cars I've had always had slats between the rails of the roof rack to prevent the cargo from scratching the roof. They seem to be a thing of the past. I found one place that offers them, Proline. https://www.prolineracks.com/proline...ter-slats.html
Has anyone ever installed them or do you have another suggestion? I don't need something more elaborate for the few times I throw some luggage up top.

New car roofs are pretty thin and wimpy, I'll pass on those. Went to Ebay and bought nice set of used Yakima aero cross bars and a new Yakima basket. Bought lock tumblers locally since eBay seller was lazy and wouldn't guarantee that all the locks were keyed alike lol. Saved a bunch of money this way after checking the dealer (cheapo low quality non-lockable off brand junk), local car rack/accessory store (over-priced, sell you anything and everything they can lol). Do your research before buying, fortunately a rack savvy friend helped me choose. :)
