When it comes to loading and unloading a kayak, canoe, ladder or any extra-long cargo all by your lonesome, even the most pumped-up paddler can have a whale of a time. So, the next time you're loading lonely, give yourself a helping hand with the Rhino-Rack Universal Side Loader.

The Rhino-Rack Universal Side Loader is designed to temporarily clamp to most factory or aftermarket crossbars. Just clamp it on, load your load, unclamp, put it in the included storage bag and stow it behind your seat. It'll be there the next time you're on a solo mission to load or unload your gear.

For loads greater than 40 pounds, Rhino-Rack includes a collapsible support pole. And, once your gear is loaded, the integrated load stop prevents it from sliding off while you're underway. Plus, to top it off, Rhino-Rack backs your Universal Side Loader with a 3-year warranty.

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.

works good
