Just picked these up today, and within two hours they were installed on my 2018 CRV. (Includes unboxing, reviewing instructions, getting distracted by a podcast, and making a new pot of coffee). I’ve been using my folding Rhino Racks all summer, and while I live in a pretty good community of like-minded water sports hungry folks, I always felt a little nervous leaving my car parked with my unsecured racks sitting atop my car. It was a sigh of relief to get back and find no one had helped themself to them. No longer will I fear that! Along with the locking end caps for my bars, I now feel super-duper confident my racks will remain untouched. They also look great now, and more streamlined, without the big knobs underneath. (Check our my before and after photos) Definitely recommend these! And, etrailer is the best; my order was delayed, but George personally kept me afloat (haha) without me even asking about it. Thank you!

One package appears to have 8 32mm bolts, which is lucky, because I needed all 8 40mm from the correctly fulfilled kit. I’ve mounted two S510 sets and now have the 8 bolts frame the original universal mount that the S510s came with and 4 32mm bolts.

These Kayak racks are very ridged and tough. They exceed my expectations, although, I have noticed small cracks in the plastic paddle holder keepers. I'm not sure how long before they crack all the way through and the part fails.

We bought bars, J style kayak carriers and adaptors for our 2017 Ford Focus hatchback. Install was pretty easy. Looks nice and is very solid on the roof. We have two 10 foot kayaks which went up fairly easy on the roof. We have used several times and are very happy with product.

I purchased Rhino j racks. The quality is great but I was disappointed there wasn’t a lock offered. This kit answered the lock issue and it looks clean without the long screws and knobs protruding from the underside of the j racks.

I have no complaints about this product. I locked my kayak racks on and left them on all summer and didn't have to worry about them getting stolen. Great customer service too!

  • Using the Rhino-Rack Kayak Carrier with Yakima HD Crossbars
    The Rhino-Rack Crossbar Adapter, part # KC-FK8, is designed to fit the 2 Kayak Carrier, part # S512-S512X, into bars with a C-channel (or T-track). The Yakima HD Crossbars, part # Y01157, do have a T-track, so this adapter should work for you. I called Rhino-Rack, and they also stated that it should work. However, since this is not 100% confirmed, if you would rather go with a kayak carrier that is already designed to work with square bars like yours, we have that here. It's the Malone...

  • Will the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier Work With Rhino-Rack Crossbars
    The Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier part # S510 is listed as a fit for round, aero/elliptical and most factory crossbars therefore they will work with anything from Rhino-Rack.

  • Lengths of the Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty Crossbars and Compatible Kayak Carrier Recommendation
    Rhino-Rack does offer longer heavy-duty load bars. We do not have a set of load bars that are 61 inches long, but the heavy-duty bar, # RB1500S, are 59 inches long and the heavy-duty bars, # RB1650S, are 65 inches long. For a kayak carrier, I would recommend the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier, # S510. You will need the Heavy-Duty Crossbar Adapters, # KC-FK8. At this time we do not have a kayak carrier that is directly compatible with the heavy-duty crossbars without the adapter kit. If...

    You will encounter some limitations due to the length and weight of your kayaks.

  • Kayak Carrier to be Used with a Rhino-Rack Roof Rack on a 2013 Honda Fit
    You didn't say which Rhino-Rack roof rack you're looking at but the J-Style Kayak Carrier # S510 will fit on their crossbars. It includes tie-down straps for the bow and stern. To make it easier to make the tie-down connections on your Fit I like to recommend the Anchor Straps # RRRBAS.

    For your 2014 Honda CR-V with a naked roof the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK284 would be what I recommend. This square bar rack has a 165 lb capacity and a better price than the Thule and Yakima racks yet has the same quality and fit as them so it's the rack I would use if I were in your shoes.
