Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Bonnet Tie-Down Strap with Anchor Review

Hi everyone, it's Evangeline here at etrailer, and today, we'll be taking a look at our Rhino-Rack Bonnet or Bow and Stern Tie-Down Straps. I'm gonna show you how they work, what they're like compared to some other straps, as well as how to install them right here at So you have your longer kayak or longer cargo like a paddleboard, you have it on a carrier, which is on a roof rack, you already have the center strapped down, you're not done yet, you still need the bow and stern tie-down points. Those are very important, because they work as kinda like the safety chains in the kayak transporting world where they're an extra step to make sure your load is secured. So when you are tying down the bow and stern points, there's some things to keep in mind. You wanna get the bow and the stern of the boat, which is the furthest point on each end, and it is helpful if you have a tie-down strap like what we have up top, but sometimes, when you're carrying things around like paddleboards or kayaks without that little anchor point, it can get a little tricky, and that's where this kind of a strap comes in handy, It's shaped a little differently than your normal bow and stern tie-down strap, plus, you have this dog bone anchor to make it easier to install into your hood and into your hatch, trunk, hitch, whatever you have in the back.

This just pops in there, just find a spot, leave that strap out, close the hood, then you're good. This style is nice, because it's very low profile. If you're going back and forth from where your paddling to where you're storing your kayaks, you can just leave this sitting out, no big deal. Also, this is similar to the more permanent style of an anchor point, some people have a little bolt, they install it inside of the hood, and they just leave this anchor out. But now this is set up, we're now ready to tie down our kayak.

So this is the way I do it. You're first gonna get your strap around your kayak, and you're also gonna have to figure out which side you want to anchor it to. For example, I wanna anchor it on this side of the vehicle, so I'm gonna leave this strap open. Place the buckles on top of the kayak and get that strap up and over. This does depend on where your kayak is sitting though, so if you have it in the center of your vehicle, this might be a little easier to do.

Some other people like to make this loop first before putting it on the kayak, really is up to you, and really, how tall you are. With that secure and tight on our kayak, we're then gonna bring the strap down through our anchor strap, and then back up to the other buckle. So notice how far out we had to put our strap, so that's something to be mindful too. Because of the length of your strap, I recommend about four feet from the top of whatever you're carrying to your anchor point. If you have around four feet of distance there, you should be good, something to remember if you have a longer or a shorter kayak.

Do the same for your rear, and you can see here how if you already know what your kayak or what you're carrying is gonna be like, you can just make that loop and put it over and tighten down. And if you have a little bit of excess strap and you are concerned about wind vibration, especially in the front, this would be a big deal, you can wind the strap around itself before you secure it in the second cam buckle. And if you have excess strap, you can just tie it off, and then use this hook and loop strip up top to secure it. Seeing if this is the best fit for you really depends on what you're carrying around. If you're carrying around a really long paddleboard, 'cause I know some paddleboards don't have that anchor point, this will be very helpful for you, because then you can have the proper bow and stern tie-down points along with your center cam buckles. Now, for kayaks that do have an anchor point, this would probably be a little bit more hassle compared to a simple strap that goes through that point. So hopefully, this video helped you out with seeing if it is the right fit for you, what you're carrying around, and for your adventures.

Rhino-Rack Bonnet Tie-Down Strap with Anchor - Qty 1 - RRRBAS1

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (6 Customer Reviews)

This bonnet strap secures a kayak, surfboard, or other long load that doesn't have a built-in tie-down point. Included anchor fits under the hood or hatch of your vehicle to provide a temporary tie-down point. Includes 1 strap and 1 anchor.


Highly Recommended. This was part of a complete solution including Aero Bars and DK Fit Kit for my Toyota Avalon. I was VERY impressed with the overall fit and sturdiness of the Rhino Rack Solution. The rack and installation is VERY well thought out. Also, the wind noise at 70 MPH is small.


I have yet to try this out but until my tow hook arrives I bet this will work perfectly! Even so, the straps feel sturdy and secure. The last bow strap I had snapped and Rhino Rack’s version seems like it’ll hold up much better. Excited to try it this weekend!


Product arrived faster than expected. Great help from staff when placing the order. Excellent product and service quality.

  • Can SeaSucker Board Carrier Carry a 10-1/2 long 33 inch wide 66 lb Kayak with 2004 Hyundai Tiburon
    Yes, the SeaSucker Board Carrier # 298-BX1806 that you referenced can handle a 10-1/2' long x 33" wide kayak that weighs 66 lbs. I reached out to my contact at SeaSucker who confirmed this for me. Just be sure to tie the bow/stern down as well. I recommend using the Rhino-Rack Bonnet Tie-Down Strap with Anchor # RRRBAS1-2 to do so.

  • Best Way to Haul a Malibu X-13 Kayak
    I called the manufacture of the Rhino Rack Nautic 581 Rear Loading Kayak Carrier part # RR581 and they told me that it would probably work with your Malibu X-13 kayak but would not be the best way to carry the kayak due to the shape of the hull. The best way to carry this kayak would involve a very simple crossbar pad like Rhino-Rack SUP and Surfboard Pads part # RRRWP05 along with tie-downs like the Rhino-Rack Bonnet Tie-Down Strap with Anchor part # RRRBAS1-2. The hull of the kayak where...

  • Recommended Cross Bars For Carrying a Kayak With a 2022 Ford Explorer With Factory Raised Side Rails
    I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2 with the Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs # RRSX100 as these legs will clamp to your raised side rails on your 2022 Ford Explorer. I find the clamps on the legs are more secure than using other legs that use straps to hold the cross bars to the roof rails. I have linked a video that we have of these legs and crossbars being installed on a Ford Escape as they use similar side rails. The Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier # S512 will...

  • Recommended Roof Rack And Kayak Loading System For 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan for Single Person Loading
    For your 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan, it sounds like you have the factory raised rack, but not the crossbars. If you don't already have a complete roof rack, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 46" Long - Qty 2, # RRVA118B-2, which are aerodynamic aluminum crossbars that have the channels for mounting accessories. These crossbars attach to your factory side rails using the Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Raised Factory Side Rails - Qty...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2011 Suzuki Kizashi
    The only available roof rack systems that are confirmed to fit the 2011 Suzuki Kizashi are designed to mount onto a naked roof without any existing rails or crossbars. There is not currently a system that will mount directly to channels or tracks on the roof of your vehicle. I recommend looking at the Rhino rack Aero Bar Roof Rack. This roof rack consists of # RRVA126B-2 for the two 49 inch Vortex Aero Crossbars, # RRRLKVA for the 2500 Series Legs, and # DK065 for the DK Fit Kit. The Fit...

  • Best Rooftop Kayak Carrier For Two 10 Kayaks On A 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    In order to carry two 10' kayaks with a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 while towing a 5th wheel camper, you will have two options to consider. The first entails the use of a roof rack with rooftop kayak carrier. The second option consists of a front mounted hitch and hitch mounted load extender. For a roof rack, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars part # RRVA150B-2 and # RRRLKVA. This model fits both crew and quad cab variants of the 2500 featuring an aluminum light-weight...
