A kayak carrier with 2 rubber and felt lined supports, each with a large surface area to protect the hull.
With the felt lined supports mounted to the rear load carrier, one person can load the kayak by simple sliding it up to the car roof.
Important Note: Using a correctly designed carrier will help to ensure that the load is safely secured. Please be aware however that, when carrying longer loads such as canoes, surfboards, small boats, etc, wind drag tends to cause the load to act as a lever, placing the carrier under very high strain. To prevent this causing a problem, long loads should always be tied down at the front of the vehicle. The simplest way to achieve this is with a product designed specifically for this task, such as the Thule 838 QuickDraw.
