    Description:

    Conquering the Kern River rapids in your kayak gives you serious bragging rights with your buddies. Losing your boat on the drive home, though, will brand you a bonehead for life. Protect your vessel-and your rep-with the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier.

    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. And, the cradles are simple to install to almost any crossbars-factory bars, Rhino-Rack bars or other aftermarket roof racks.

    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. Plus, Rhino-Rack backs your kayak J rack with a 2-year warranty.

    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

    Mediocer at best

    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.

    Defective Part

    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.

    Just what the doctor ordered

    Product came as described. Easy installation. Fit the factory roof rack of my 2016 Nissan Frontier to a T. Price was very fair (especially after the discount offered).

    Easy

    Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carriers are incredibly easy to set up. I went ahead and ordered a second set after I realized how much I like it! Now I can carry two :)

    Works great

    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.

    Kayak Rack (Fixed)

    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!

    Secure

    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.

    Well-built, fits okay

    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.
