old kayaker with new car

Had to adjust to new and bigger car (from Honda Civic to Subaru Outback)was the reason I bought these "J racks". As I am a short person (5'), I needed a step ladder to secure racks in place. Okay, so far, but directions with straps were confusing. Followed my instincts to secure my little Calypso with straps enclosed and improvisations. Negative is how it arrived -promptly, but Fed Ex left it outside unattended for 2 days with rain! Never more with FedEX at my place!

Not exactly what I wanted

This kayak carrier is quality and easy to install. My only problem is I was told by the phone representative that this carrier folded and down and it does not.

Easy and quick transport

I love my new carriers with only one complaint. the thumb nuts securing the carriers to the crossbar keep loosening from the vibration of the vehicle. Not much, but enough that you should check them after every trip to ensure they are tight. Other than that, I love the carriers. Look nice, easy to secure the Kayaks, everything you need is included with the kit, and it is easy to lift the kayaks into the J brackets. Love the freedom of being able to take my Kayak out at a moments notice.

Our purchase of two carriers will transport our kayaks to Acadia National Park in August, and we feel confident the Thule carriers will accomplish the job without any problems.

Ordered and received the rack in a speedy fashion. Item arrived as described. Good instructions on how to mount it. Following the guide for my make/model/year I see that the rack can be mounted using the 45 65 or 85mm bolts.I knew I needed to use the 85mm carriage bolts...... but the rack doesnt SHIP with 85mm bolts. I have to find them on my own. M6x85mm carriage bolts are not common. I had to order them on line because NONE of my local hardware stores carry them. wish I new in advance!

Great appearance with special padding to protect the kayak surface. Easy to mount and remove. Kayaks postured securely in the cradles. Caution to recheck the clamps after driving the first hour. Then you should be good to go the remainder of the trip.
