That is an interesting comment. I have a Space Cadet also and am interested in more information on this as well because I had pretty much decided to go with the Honda bars because they are about half of the setup cost for the Yakima.
On a side note, I wonder if you asked them if you used their mounts and bars if it came loose would they cover any damages, including medical bills. My guess is that they would say it was user error and put it back in your lap.
