After trying to adapt a Yakima kayak carrier onto our Rhino-Rack aero cross bars without success we finally just bought the rhino rack version. Duh... It clamped right on. Didn't even need instructions. Seemed quite solid. We had to pick up a new kayak 90 miles away. So our first test was to bring it home on the new carrier. Highway speeds all the way home. No problem. Stopped after about 30 miles to double check and adjust straps a little. That was it.

Installed quickly (No Instructions Required), all straps and tie downs were included, an unexpected bonus! Held a kayak in place at speeds over 70mph, didn't move an inch! Great product, was going to cheap out on Ebay, glad I Didn't!

Easy install. Securely holds kayak. Be careful, it comes with the long bolts. When you place kayaks on it the bolts may touch roof of vehicle. Ask for the shorter bolts, or purchases after market rails.

I mounted this Rhino-Rack kayak carrier on Rhino-Rack aero bars; the fit is not perfect and tends to lean to one side or the other, but very easy to install and secure once in place. On the downside, though I was trying to be careful not to over-tighten, I have begun to see bending on the threaded attachment bolts/pegs, which was only observed after traveling a few hundred miles with kayaks mounted. These threaded parts appear to be the weakest link in an otherwise very tough system.
