I got mine from www.rackattack.com for $325 with 8 locks shipped, but no "attachments". As for the install it took me 45 minutes starting from opening boxes to being done. It's a PITA to measure out how much space between the towers and where it goes on the car, but do it otherwise it won't be straight.

Also if you can get someone to help you it's a lot easier if someone tightens the towers on each side at the same time, otherwise you need to go back and forth to keep them straight. If you just tighten one side all the way and then the other, the tower will slide on the crossbar and the roof so you end up with different length "stubs" on each side and the feet in slightly different places. Ask me how I know.
