Secure, stable and simple are the defining traits of your Rhino-Rack Kayak J Rack. It comes with a pair of ultra-secure, padded carrier cradles that hold a wide range of hull sizes and shapes. Once it's parked in the cradles, your boat is lashed down with the four included straps for maximum stability.

Not only do Rhino J-Style Kayak Racks deliver a powerful grip, but they're also engineered to outlast the elements. The cradles are constructed from sturdy steel tubing with an anti-corrosive coating, and all the hardware is made from rust-safe stainless steel.

It is not intuitive as to how to lock in the pieces that cover the top bolts. If you pull from underneath with needle nose pliers they pop right in, the need to snap in place to be secure

The bolts used to connect the rack to the car's rack started to rust after one summer use. Presumably the are supposed to be made out of stainless still. I wish the rack had a lock so it would lock the the car's rack. The foam cover of the bottom portion of the rack has already split in a couple of places requiring duct taping.

I had a defective part. Still waiting on the replacement to arrive. It seems like a solid rack although i have not been able to complete the install yet.
