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

Hi, everyone. It's Evangeline here at etrailer. And today, we are looking at our Rhino-Rack Bonnet tie-down with anchor here at etrailer. So, if you're carrying around a surfboard, paddleboard, or a kayak on top of your vehicle, you may be interested in these straps, especially because of how they attach to the front or the back of whatever you're carrying, and then they go into the bonnet or hood of your vehicle. So, they create a nice, quick, temporary mounting point that's easier to use than a hook that goes around in your hood. And it's faster to use than a permanent mounting anchor, which has to be screwed down into your hood.

Now, as you are on the road, please be safe out there and make sure that everything is strapped down correctly. Most kayak carriers come with straps that go over the middle of your car and hold them down the middle, but your bow and stern ones are important as well. So, if you're going over 50 miles an hour or 80 kilometers an hour, please have this on the front of your, either your kayak, your boat, or your board. Now, you cannot exceed with, even with these on, 110 kilometers an hour or about 68 miles per hour. So, this comes in packs of one or two.

So, what I have here is just the single packs. You can see how it holds onto the front of your kayak. Now, for the two-pack, that's where you have it mounted to both the right and the left of your hood. So, if you have a single kayak and you wanna make sure it's completely tied down, you might, may interested in the two-pack. So, this kit is gonna have two parts.

The first is gonna be your anchor strap and this goes into your hood or your bonnet. And then the second is going to be your tie-down strap. So, this has two cam buckles and they are surrounded by this nice hard rubber, which is going to help out since they are gonna be sitting on your kayak or your board, and you wanna make sure it doesn't scratch it. I personally really like what everything is made of. You have this nice foam that goes around your dog bone.

So, compared to others that just have a hard material and can tend to scratch up your hood, this has that foam as well, as well as rubber ends, and that's gonna be nice as it's inside your bonnet. Now, this strap is going to be 3.5 meters long or 11 1/2 feet long. And one thing I noticed about that is that you have to make sure you have it in the right position. With how our strap is positioned right now, that's because our board is on the shorter side, so we had to kind of reach towards our hood. But if you have a longer kayak, a longer stand up paddleboard, please bring it as far towards the vehicle as you can get it while still trying to keep it distributed. That way, your angle of strap is more towards your hood and not away from it. So, the install process just involves figuring out where on your kayak, or your surfboard, or your paddleboard you need to install the straps and then opening up your hood. So, let's take a look at that process. So, the first step to the install is to wrap this around either your kayak, your board, or your stand up paddleboard, kind of like what I have here. So now, some of your kayaks or boards may have a tie-down anchor point on the end, but others don't. So, if they don't, this is gonna be a good thing for you cause then it wraps around and creates a bow and stern anchor point. And then your anchor point or your strap is going to have two buckles as well as this long strap. So, first you're gonna put your first buckle on top and then you feed the strap around. So, I already did this over here. So, then we're gonna go onto the next step. So, here we're gonna have it behind the fin and underneath the board. So, once you have it into position, just make sure that it is tight. Use that cam buckle and then leave the second buckle open because then you're gonna feed this in towards your dog bone. This dog bone goes into your hood or to your bonnet, makes it a really quick and easy way to tie down your straps. So first, open your hood, and then maybe keep it up with a latch as you find the right spot for your dog bone. Right over here on the end seems like a good area, then you can just leave the rest of the strap hanging out. See here how this is now sticking out, ready to attach your tie-down strap. So, we're just gonna feed this in through our anchor, and then bring this right back up to our other cam buckle. To reduce wind vibration, what you can do is you can twist this other end around that strap or around itself right before you connect it or you tie it down to the cam buckle. Just bring that through and make sure it is as tight as you can get it. With it fully tightened down, you may have some excess strap, so you can feed it back into the buckle or use these hook and loop strips to secure it. Make sure everything is tight and secured. And once it's checked, that's it for the install. Now, my final thoughts about this tie-down strap is I do like how it goes around the board or the kayak. Not all of my boards would have the easy tie-down hook that most kayaks have for your bow and your stern, so this is a nice way to add it and make sure that I am good on the road. Also, with all the straps you do have to deal with in just a regular day of carrying your kayak around, it's nice that this is a lot easier and faster to hook up. And that way, I'm on the road and I'm at the lake, or at the water a lot sooner. Now, another thing about this though, is that it is hard to find a good spot on your surfboard, so just make sure to work around with it and make sure that you have things tied down as best as you can, and that it's on your vehicle securely. Now, if you do have a shorter kayak or stand up paddleboard, this may not be the best fit for you. The way this works is that this is very helpful if you have a longer kayak that goes towards the hood of your car. That way, your angle of your tie-down is backwards. Now, here we kind of have a shorter kayak, plus our crossbars are sitting a bit towards the back, so it's not the best fit. So, hopefully, this helps you figure out if these are the right straps for you. If not, you may wanna just consider our etrailer tie-down strap kit for our bow and stern if you're, do have shorter paddleboards or kayaks. And that was a look here at our Rhino-Rack Bonnet tie-down strap with anchor here at etrailer..

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 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 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 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...
