More than likely. If you are a bit ham fisted for sure you run the risk of causing damage (even if using factory fitted kit).
Salesmen (& women) will only be thinkin about how to avoid you returning as a disgruntled customer, so will forever air on the side of caution. Plus I’m sure they have a nice mark up on OE aftermarket stuff.
After a year of real life use, and about 4-5k miles across Europe with my Saris rack carrying two specialized mountain bikes, I can honestly say that the plastic spoiler remains unmarked and appears to be more than strong enough for the job.

Thanks for the replies. It fits the car so I just need to know whether it will be safe. I’ve emailed Saris to see if they can advise anything.
