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.

Products as described and fit my kayak racks perfectly. Went back and bought new brackets as they were rusted and needed a replacement too.

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!


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

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 !!!

We ordered the 6" Thule replacement pads for our Thule Kayak Racks we bought in 2009. It was easy to pull off the old ones and slide on the new ones; didn't even need to remove the kayak racks from the roof when we installed the new ones. Works great and the Kayak Rack now looks the way we bought it 10 years ago. Highly recommend buying these if yours are to torn & worn out. The price of these pads at eTrailer is very competitive and the service they provided was excellent

I needed replacement foam pads for my Thule kayak racks so I went online to search for them. That's how I found etrailer.com. They had exactly what I needed so I ordered them. The price was fair and I received the pads a few days later. I replaced my old pads and the new ones fit great. I would recommend etrailer.com for accessories and parts. They carry many!

The Thule 6 inch replacement pads for our mounted kayak carrier are well made and fit beautifully! We were very pleased with how quickly they were shipped and delivered. We're looking forward to loading the kayaks and going out tomorrow for a paddle!

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.

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.

The Thule replacement pads were perfect! I bought them to replace the ones that I had on my car’s kayak rack for the last six years. The old ones were ok but they had faded I wanted new ones. The service was EXCELLENT! I had originally ordered online one of each pad. Then a little while later I realize that I really needed two of each pad. When I called, the service department was excellent. Donna P. corrected my order for me. Donna P. was a pleasure to speak with and I even revived a follow up email. I received my order in a very reasonable amount of time. This is the second time I have ordered from this company and I will order any future needs I may have from Etrailer!

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!

This is my second purchase from etrailer. Both purchases were easy transactions, shipped in a timely fashion and delivered quickly. The products were as promised - high quality, new condition and dependable. My twenty year old Thule kayak racks look like new with my replacement pads. I always check etrailer first and will continue to do so. Dependable, courteous and reasonable. And shipments are easy to track with their awesome tacking app. Thanks again!
