Video Transcript for Review of Thule Watersport Carrier Parts - Replacement Pad for Kayak Carriers - 853-5540

Ellen: Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com, and we're going to be taking a quick look at the replacement pad for your Thule kayak carriers. This is going to be a six-inch pad to go on the ends of your roof-mounted kayak carrier to help protect the hull of your boat from any kind of damage.So it's just going to be this covered, basically, foam pad that's going to go around the ends of your carrier. It's got a little hook and loop closure to help keep that in place. Maybe this flew off, got bumped off, ripped up, or damaged in some kind of way, this is going to be a direct replacement from Thule to get that back on your carrier.So let's take a closer look and make sure it's the right fit for your particular carrier. Again, this does measure six inches from side-to-side.

So six inches there. About closer to six and a half inches longways.It just opens up. We'll have those layers of foam to help protect our carrier and also our kayak or any other watercraft that we're using with this. This works with the Hull-a-Port and Hull-a-Port Pro, as well as the Hullavator and Hullavator Pro. For the actual part numbers, you can see those listed on our product page here at etrailer.com.

And if you need a replacement cradle arm, we do also have those available for those J-Style carriers. So that's going to be the Hull-a-Port.So, if you need any other replacement parts for any kind of tool year, we usually have just about anything you can think of. So check us out right here at etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.

The items I purchased were replacements for the pads that came with the Thule kayak rack I bought years ago. They original pads were used and abused, and exposed to the elements and UV light for years. I'm sure that the new pads from etrailer will last just as long as the originals. 692174

It's the Thule factory replacement for the Hull-a-port kayak rack. Was less expensive than buying direct from Thule and shipped quickly. Exactly what I wanted! 711801

Excellent replacement pads for my Thule folding J’s. After 9 years (everyday) of exposure to all of the weather elements in SW, Ohio, I needed new replacement padding for my Thule folding J’s to carry my new Epic GPX kayak. Perfect replacement padding-equipment ! Thank you very much etrailer !!! 607984

Exactly what I was looking for! The new Thule racks come with a curved pad - mine is an older model, and I wanted more padding for my kayaks. They were super easy to install! 223405

Pads still working wonderfully! We do remove the hulivator in the winter to save uv damage.

I bought these pads to replace worn out pads on my kayak rack. These pads are adequate, but will wear out again after a few years of use and ultraviolet rays. 877133
