I purchased this to have the freedom to load/unload my kayak while on the road without having to unhook my travel trailer, and it functions exactly as I hoped it would! It's designed to fit most popular racks out there but I had to modify mine to fit- had they drilled more mounting holes in the adapters this wouldn't have been necessary. Very well built otherwise and padded to save scratches/dings on your vehicle. Also could be a bit less $$ in my opinion. Happy nonetheless

Before purchasing, I checked with AutoAnything to see if this would work with my factory installed rack on my 4Runner. I was assured that it was "universal" so there would be no problem. However, none of the supplied "hooks" work with the rack, so I'm stuck trying to improvise a way to get it to attach securely. I imagine it works well with Thule and other standard after market racks, just don't bet on it fitting factory installed rack.
