Hi Folks. I have a 2015 Murano Platinum I just purchased a month or so ago. The wife and I are taking a small vacation trip this weekend and I need my roof bag for the light stuff on my roof. Blankets, pillows etc etc. Its frustrating that these racks are being redesigned and/or eliminated. (I may end up fabricating with my welding friend a set when I get back) but for now this should work just fine.
Rubber matting goes across roof first (Anti-slip mat)
3/4" galvanized strap
3/8 rubber hose
6mm by 1 1/2" bolts

I have a picture of my old Jeep with bag up on it. (I'll take a picture once I'm loaded up)

Let me know your thoughts

Why don't you use a Thule cross bar and a box or tray on top? The only offset would be the cost but the box/tray is an investment for the future which can be passed on from vehicle to vehicle. Personally, I don't like the idea of anything sitting directly on my roof.

Interesting - there are three nearly identical threads by different people asking the same question.

TORX is the term. It describes the specific design needed. Other tools do not work.
