I purchased a 2017 Subaru Outback. To transport my 1981 17 foot QT17C Alumacraft canoe on the factory installed roof rack crossbars that came with the Outback, I selected the Thule Portage Canoe Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Gunwale Brackets - Side Loading - TH819 to do the trick. I did some advance research online and couldn’t be more pleased with this purchase from etrailer.com. I now have a quality product at the right price and these gunwale brackets are a simple solution for this veteran canoe man. I’m also impressed with the bow/stern tie downs that have a very nice ratchet and clip on one end and I secured the supplied hook with a bowline knot to the other end of the ¼ inch rope. The Outback did not have convenient anchor points on the front or back of the vehicle for tie down locations but I found a good solution by ordering the Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs - Qty 2 - TH530. This works well with the tie downs I mentioned previously. I no longer need to crawl under the vehicle looking a way to secure the canoe. I look forward to many more years of safe and happy canoeing I give etrailer.com an excellent rating for the entire ordering and shipping process on top of the high level of satisfaction with the products I purchased through them. Their customer service and price ensured me that I’ll do more business with them in the future.

Etrailer is the only supplier which I found that had the total package of towers, cross bars and locks. Ordering was easy and shipment was shipped and received quickly, ordered on Saturday package arrived on Monday,tracking was included. I also order ordered the Thule tie downs and Etrailer tucked them on the roof rack package so I received everything in one box. A follow up email was sent confirming order had been delivered. The rack was in stalled on a 2013 RAV4.

etrailer provides great communication and quick shipping. The replacement pads fit my Thule kayak racks perfectly and with these new loops I'll be able to use the tie down ropes easily.

These tie down loops come in very handy on my new car that lacks the towing hooks that I used to use on my old one and hold just as securely.

Qualify item, took to long to receive. Order over a month ago finally received them. Plan to use them next time I kayaking.



- TH530
by:

these are the easiest,secure tie down items for bow and stern , Extremely clever. Just close the hood and/or trunk or hatch back down on them,and tie off to intergral loops. I use for canooe and kayaks. No need to get under vehicle to find a tie off .



- TH530
by:

Simple, elegant and convenient solution to securing kayaks (etc.) to your vehicle. If you paddle longer boats (my kayaks are 14, 14.5 and 15 feet long) I recommend getting the Thule Bow/Stern Tie Downs (TH530) for convenient temporary bow & stern tie down points, without crawling under the vehicle to attach to the frame. I use them with my Thule Hull-A=Port Kayak carriers.



- TH530
by:

Worked well on both hood and tailgate of 2012 Subaru Outback to provide additional tie-down security for boats strapped into roof rack carriers. Was a little worried about the hood location and whether the plastic would be impacted by proximity to hot top of radiator but have had no issues. Great product if your vehicle has limited options for tiedowns on or under front or rear bumpers.



- TH530
by:

The part works great and it was an easy fit for my car.



- TH530
by:

These work well enough I suppose but I wish they were a couple inches longer. With my 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee there are only a couple of locations under the hood and rear hatch where the staps can actually be placed and still stick out far enough where you can hook them. The rear hatch especially, the strap sticks out barely enough for me to insert my hook. But, they work and a solid overall. Would I buy them again, no. There is another set on eTtailer from a different company, that appear much longer and half the price, those I would buy.



- TH530
by:

These are great!! Both of the tow hooks on my Kia Soul are on the passenger side of the vehicle and I didn’t trust tying my kayak on top with the bow and stearn off to the same side. These straps are completely sturdy and gave me the option to tie to the center, front and back!! Great product!!



- TH530
by:

Haven't utilized these yet as I just receive my hitch assembly and I need to figure out where these will attach on/inside/from the hatch of the 2015 VW GTI! I WILL use them though as the bike rack could bend the hitch assembly since it's only an 1" square....

by:

I personally love the quick loops. I have no place to attach tie downs to my car. I placed the front one under hood of passenger side and the rear one in the trunk, passenger side again. Holds tight and leaves no marks on paint.

After a year they still work perfectly....would recommend.

I purchased two sets of the Thule Quick Loops for my daughter and myself. We love them! No having to find the proper place to tie down our kayaks..just open the hood and back hatch and good to go. Also the shipping time was fantastic. Thank you from a couple of new and happy kayakers.

Excellent wall racks for our 10 ft. 51 lb. kayaks. Takes some time to get them aligned and installed on the studs but once completed they are fine. Like that they swing flat to the wall when not holding the kayaks. The only negative is that the factory sup[plied screrws are worse than awful - - even with pre-drilled holes as suggested and using a power drill driver the heads stripped almost immediately. So, a quick trip to the local True Value and $7.45 invested for "real" stainless steel screws and done!!

My Ford Escape has no good tie down spots (which surprised me for an SUV type vehicle). These straps allow me to easily tie down to a secure spot, both front and rear.

These Tie-Downs are so easy to use and are great for securing the bow and stern of our boats instead of tying off on the trailer hitch and risking marring the paint on our car. Great idea!



- TH530
by:

Come in handy. Allow you to secure bow and stern without fear of damaging paint. Used with a cam buckle without the hook and worked perfect. Highly reccomend.

Thule tie downs make transporting easy,great product.

Great product. Is very easy to install and uninstall. Is also the best solution to fastening the load in the rear if desired.

by:

Used it last weekend and it works great. I put one between hood/front of car and the other between the back hatch/rear of car and the canoe was very secure (I also tied the canoe over the top to the luggage rack as their video showed).

  • How to Secure Kayak at the Front of a 2017 Honda CR-V
    If you aren't able to find a suitable location to secure your kayak to your 2017 Honda CR-V then that's when we need alternative tie-down anchors. I really like the options from Thule with their Quick-Loops # TH530 which you place under the hod each time you need to load your kayak up, or the Hood Loops # TH529 which are more of a permanent installation and are the better choice if you go kayaking on a regular basis. I have attached review videos of both products as well as an installation...

  • Anchor Strap for Roof Rack that Shuts in Hood
    We have something similar to that with the hood anchor straps from Thule part # TH530 which you'd shut in the hood and gives you a nylon loop to attach to.

  • Fitment of Thule Portage Canoe Carrier on a 2017 Mazda CX-5 with OEM Roof Rack
    The Thule Portage Canoe Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # TH819 will work with the OEM crossbars on your 2017 Mazda CX-5. I confirmed this fitment directly with Thule. This is a really easy system to use and the only other thing I'd recommend getting to help make things easier are the Quick Loops # TH530 which allow you to use your hood and rear hatch as anchor points so you don't have to crawl under your vehicle and find an anchor point down there.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2019 Honda CR-V to Carry a Canoe
    The roof rack I strongly recommend for your 2019 Honda CR-V is the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack because it gives your CR-V a rack that is highly functional with a refined look. The Rhino-Rack Roof Rack is made up of: - Crossbars # RRVA137B-2 (Black) OR # RRVA137S-2 (Silver) - Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA - Fit Kit # DK284. This roof rack uses aerodynamic bars that have rubber vortex strips in its top channels which greatly minimize the amount of wind noise and drag you might encounter....

  • Kayak Carrier to Carry 2 Kayaks on the Roof of a 2017 Ford Focus.
    If you don't already have a roof rack on your 2017 Ford Focus I recommend starting with the Rola, part # R5101. This rack has a maximum weight capacity of 165 pounds which is the highest rated for your car. You'll need to verify that the Focus's roof can handle the weight of both kayaks before carrying them because you will still be limited by the roof's capacity. Then to carry the kayaks on the rack you can use the Yakima JayLow # Y04073. It's light (A little over 10 pounds total)...

This system has Vortex aero 54 inch crossbars # RRVA137B-2, feet # RRRLKVA, and the custom fit kit # DK227 that attach to the truck doorframe. The kayak carrier I recommend is the Yakima JayLow Folding J-Style Kayak Carrier, part # Y04073. This kayak carrier is a side load and has a built-in ramp that helps you load your kayak easier. This carrier comes with tie-downs and also with locks that secure the carrier...

  • Are Straps Required for Carrying Kayaks with Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier
    To carry kayaks with the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier # S510 you will need to strap down the kayaks front and back. We took several pictures of this rack with kayaks loaded on it and not all of them show the kayaks secured and ready for transport. A lot of people use the Hood Loops like part # TH529 for securing the front of the kayak or for back and front part # TH530. Simply close them under the vehicle's hood or trunk.

  • Do the Bows and Sterns of Kayaks have to be Tied Down when Carried on the Roof
    You will want to use tie downs to secure the bows and sterns of the kayaks when transporting them on the roof of any vehicle, including your 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid. A lot of the kayak carriers come with tie downs but if you need some you can use # TH855XT. Finding a good spot to secure the tie downs on a vehicle can be difficult but I have a great solution for you. You can use the Thule Quick Loops # TH530. I have included a link to a video review of these tie downs for you.

  • Recommended Roof Rack And Kayak Carrier For 2016 Toyota Highlander XLE With Flush Roof Rails
    The Thule Hullavator Pro, part # TH898 is a great kayak carrier and it makes it much easier to load and unload your Pungo Kayak, especially with the height of your 2016 Highlander. The roof rack I recommend for your Highlander is the Thule WnigBar roof rack. This roof rack includes aerodynamic crossbars that help reduce wind drag and noise. To order this roof rack you will need part # TH711400 for silver bars or part # TH711420 for black bars, part # TH460R, and part # THKIT3134. To...

  • Recommended Roof Rack to Carry a Kayak on a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    There are a few different roof types you may have on your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Which roof type will determine the parts needed to have a complete roof rack. Your Jeep may have the E Group package, which means the roof will have rails that run front to back that have a chrome strip on them. There will be a channel that runs inside the rail. If it does, I suggest the Yakima rack that includes parts # Y00421, # Y00148, and # Y00244. The feet connect to the factory rails. If the Jeep...

    Curt recommends using the stabilization strap, # 18050, or something similar, for all non-trailer loads with trailer hitch # C13144. There is no specific place the strap has to go. Ideally you will want the strap end that is attached to the vehicle to be higher than where it is attached to the bike rack. Because you have that rear spoiler the hook will most likely not be able to fit right at the top of the hatch on your 2014 Subaru Forester. To get around that you can use quick loops #...

  • Must the Bow and Stern Tie Down Ropes be Used When Carrying a Kayak on a Subaru Outback
    The J-Stacker Kayak Carrier, # SR5511, is one of our most popular kayak carriers and is designed to work on Thule square bars, round bars and most factor crossbars. This kayak carrier would be my recommendation for your Subaru Outback. It is required to tie down the bow and stern when carrying a kayak on top of a vehicle. I spoke with my contact at SportRack and found out that the ropes are made of a soft polypropylene material that should not damage the paint on your vehicle. These ropes...

    Thule has their Inno Kayak Lifter Load Assist, part # INA453, for use with square, aero, round, and factory bars. (It will not work with Thule AeroBlade load bars.) This item inserts into the hollow square load bar and extends out to provide a pivot point for loading a kayak. The Kayak Lifter can support a kayak or other water craft of up to 90 lbs weight. If you need bow/stern tie down hardware for transporting your kayak I suggest the Thule Quick Loops, part # TH530, and the Quick...

  • Kayak Carrier for a 2016 Subaru Outback and Hobie Mirage Outback Kayak
    For a kayak carrier that is a direct fit to the factory crossbars on your 2016 Subaru Outback I recommend the Thule DockGrip, # TH895. The four saddles and tie down straps will easily secure your kayak. I looked up the Hobie Mirage Outback and it weighs 81 to 99 pounds depending on how it is equipped. This carrier will support that weight range. I have included a link to a video review of this carrier for you. Since kayaks have to be tied down at the bow and stern as well I often get...

  • Where to Install the Thule Hood Loop Strap TH529
    You will want to install the Hood Loops for Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs # TH529 by either using existing hardware under the hood (taking out a bolt and re-installing it with the loop) or by drilling out your own hole and using hardware acquired at your local hardware store. If you do not want to drill into anything under your hood and you do not feel comfortable taking out existing hardware and using that, then Thule has another solution with their Quick Loops for Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs...

  • Kayak Carrier And Bike Rack Options For 2014 Chevrolet Spark With Naked Roof
    I did some research on your 2014 Chevrolet Spark and per the owner's manual it states that no more than 110 lbs can be carried on the roof or the vehicle could suffer damage. Carrying 2 kayaks would not be an option because the weight on the roof with the kayaks, roof rack, and kayak carrier would exceed the roof weight limit. If carrying one kayak is an option for you I recommend the Rhino-Rack ROC25 Roof Rack, part # RR22RR. This roof rack has quiet aerodynamic black crossbars and features...

  • Does Location Matter When Using Thule Quick Loops To Secure Kayak On 2011 Toyota Prius
    As long as the Quick Loops # TH530 are in the trunk or hood cavity and away from anything moving or hot, they will hold the bow or stern of the kayak secure. These are made of a sturdy nylon webbing. As far as where in the trunk or under the hood they are placed, as long as the tie-down can be cinched securely, the location would not really matter. I have attached a link to a video that shows the Quick Loops being used you can check out.

Close the cylinder of one under the hood and the cylinder for the other close in the rear hatch, leaving the straps out on both, and that will create 2 easy to access and use tie down points to secure the canoe.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for Factory Roof Rack on 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon
    According to Thule, their Hull-A-Port # TH834 is a fit for the factory crossbars on your 2012 Outback. To carry two kayaks, you would need two of the carriers. The Hull-A-Port has a 75 lb capacity, you will need to ensure that the weight capacity of your vehicle roof and its rack will not be exceeded by the weight of your kayaks. You should be able to find the roof rack capacity in the owners manual or perhaps on a sticker placed on the rack itself. The Hull-A-Ports include bow and stern...

    SportRack is actually a division of Thule. The J-Stacker Kayak Carrier you mentioned is compatible with crossbars up to 3-1/2 inches wide, since the Thule AeroBlade crossbars are 3 inches wide, the J-Stacker will indeed fit. The J-Stacker does come with bow and stern tie downs, but I would also recommend the Thule Quick Loops, part # TH530. The quick loops can be closed into the trunk and hood of the vehicle, and would offer a quick and easy to use attachment point for the tie downs. I...

The saddles are molded rubber so they won't hurt your SUP but if you'd like to add some extra protection you can use the Felt Pads # Y08004080.
