I had my doubts about hauling my 15' tandem kayak for hours at interstate speeds. I shouldn't have worried. The ROLA saddles worked flawlessly and it was a breeze attaching them to the crossbars with the supplied adapters. During a six-hour drive, I constantly monitired the tension of my bow tie-downs to look for any signs that the kayak was slipping or moving in the saddles. To my surprise, the bow (and stern) tie-downs ended up being there just for insurance. They kayak didn't slip an inch in the saddles and the supplied straps held it secure. This product performs as advertized. 39806

  • Will the Rola Multi-Pivot Watercraft Carrier work in the T-Slots of a Rhino-Rack Aero Bar
  • I pulled a Rola Multi-Pivot Watercraft Carrier # 59876 and a demo aero bar from Rhino Rack from our showroom and was able to test fit them together and found that you can use these two products together. The T-slot of aero bar will accept the # 59876 and they actually work perfectly together. Check out the video I put together that shows that these products are compatible.

  • Watersport Carrier Recommendation for a 2006 GMC Envoy with Factory Roof Rack
  • The Rola Multi-Pivot Watercraft Carrier, # 59876, was designed to fit the specific shape of the Rola Sportz crossbars or a certain size T-slot on top of the bars. It has not been tested on other bars so I cannot say if it will fit or not. What I recommend is to use some foam blocks, like # ABR525. These blocks are universal and can fit square load bars, round crossbars, factory bars and naked roofs. They also include bow and stern tie downs.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation that is Compatible with Thule Xsporter Ladder Rack Crossbars
  • The Xsporter bars are large rectangular shaped bars whereas the Rola carrier # 59876 fits around elliptical bars. Because the bars are different enough these two items are not compatible with each other. I reocmmend using the Thule Glide and Set carrier # TH883. You will also need to use adapter # THXADAPT3 to use the carrier with the Xsporter bars.

  • Will OEM Roof Rack for 2013 BMW 328xi Work With Rola Kayak Carrier # 59876
  • The Rola Multi-Pivot Watercraft Carrier you reviewed, part # 59876, uses a specialized T-Slot mounting system intended specifically for use with Rola T-slot-equipped crossbars. I researched the OEM roof rack offered for the BMW 328xi. Their F30/1 rack uses elliptical-shape aluminum crossbars and its specs indicate the vehicle roof weight load limit is 165 lbs. However, I found nothing to indicate that the BMW rack crossbars are compatible with Rola T-slot accessories. We do offer a rang

  • Will Cradles for Rola Multi-Pivot Watercraft Carrier # 59876 Fit Crossbars on 2003 Volkswagen Passat
  • The Rola Multi-Pivot Watercraft Carrier, part # 59876, is designed to mount in either of two ways. It can be T-slot-mounted into Rola roof rack crossbars designed to accept such T-slot accessories, or it can mount to Rola Sportz elliptical-shape crossbars using the supplied low-profile adapters. I researched your 2003 Volkwagen Passat Wagon but I was not able to find confirmation of the size of the OEM roof rack crossbars. So I pulled a sample of the Rola Multi-Pivot Carrier and measured the

  • Will Rola Multi-Pivot Watercraft Carrier, # 59876, Fit a 2010 Toyota RAV4
  • The Rola Multi-Pivot Watercraft Carrier, # 59876, is designed to fit in the T-slot that is on the top of Rola crossbars that run side to side on the roof of a vehicle. If your RAV4 has crossbars with or without a T-slot on the top I cannot confirm fit since this carrier is designed and tested for just the Rola bars. If you want to use this carrier and you do not have Rola crossbars on your RAV4 then you would first need to add some. If your RAV4 has the factory side rails that run front to ba

  • Compatibility of Whispbar Crossbars with Rola Multi-Pivot Watercraft Carrier # 59876
  • Because the T-slot of both the Rola and the Whispbar crossbars share about the same dimensions, the Rola Watercraft Carrier you referenced should fit just fine. This being said, keep in mind that Whispbar does not test their crossbars with accessories from other manufacturers. Yakima states that some accessories will interfere with sun roof operation, but because the Rola Watercraft Carrier mounts to the top of the crossbars, and would have nothing hanging down, there should be no interferenc
