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 . 794209

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). 668382

These are handy for longer kayaks. Easy to use. Keeps you out from under your car trying to find tie spots. If your car has autoclosing backgate you might have to override it for it to close. 516268

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!! 511740



- 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. 462882



- 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. 414038

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. 409011

  • How Long is the Strap on Quick Loops for Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs # TH530
    I went out to the warehouse to measure the strap length on the Quick Loops # TH530 for you. From the cylinder the strap is attached to up to the end of the strap is 8 inches. I included a picture showing where I measured.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Can 1 Set of Tie Downs be Used for 2 Kayaks on the Thule Stacker and 2015 Subaru Outback
    You will likely be able to use just one set of tie downs for 2 kayaks and the Thule Stacker # TH830. Ultimately though it depends on the length of the vehicle. Longer vehicles require longer tie down straps. But on your 2015 Subaru Outback I do not anticipate there being an issue. Especially if you use the Quick Loops # TH530. If you do want to get another set of tie downs you can use # TH855XT.

  • Front Tie-Down Anchor Point Solution for 16 Solo Canoe on a 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
    I have the perfect solution for you! The Thule Quick Loops # TH530 were designed for vehicles like your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon where it is difficult to find tie-down points. If you check out the attached photos you can see how another customer utilized these to secure their canoe to the roof of their 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon. A review video has been linked for you to check out as well.

  • Tie Down Location for a Kayak or Canoe for the Front of a 2014 Toyota Highlander
    If you are talking about carrying a kayak or canoe on the roof and need somewhere to tie off the bow to the front of your 2014 Toyota Highlander I think I have the perfect solution for you. Take a look at the Thule Quick Loops, # TH530. You will close the cylinder under the hood and leave the strap hanging out providing a quick, easy, and inexpensive tie down point. There is a similar model, # TH529, that you can attach under a bolt.

  • Where to Tie Down Kayak Bow and Stern on a 2015 Subaru Outback
    Finding a tie down location on a vehicle when carrying kayaks can be a challenge. If there isn't a convenient place available you can use the Thule Quick Loops, # TH530. You will close the cylinder part under the hood away from anything that gets hot or moving parts. The strap part will stay outside of the vehicle providing a tie down point. I have linked a video review showing how they work. A similar product, # TH529, goes between a bolt and the vehicle and provides a tie down point.

  • Ways to Carry Canoes on a 2015 Ford Edge
    A great solution for the bow and stern tie-downs on your 2015 Ford Edge are Thule Quick Loops # TH530. You just close them under the hood and trunk of your Edge and then connect them to the canoe. You mentioned a Yakima roof rack. If your Edge has a naked roof with no factory rails the parts needed for a Yakima rack are: 50 inch JetStream Cross Bars # Y00425 BaseLine Towers # Y00146 Fit Kit # Y06102 and # Y06139 Then you can add the Yakima KeelOver # Y04069 to carry the canoe...

  • Front Tie Down Anchor for 2019 Chevrolet Equinox
    I have a solution for you, but I checked with Chevy and they were unable to provide the size of the bolt that fits this hole. They also mentioned that it's going to be vehicle specific, so we would not have any type of D-ring that you could use in its place. The best option for you is going to be the Thule Quick Loops Bow/Stern Tie Downs # TH530. These install quickly and easily in your rear cargo gate and under the front hood and won't leave anything hanging off your front bumper when...

  • Can Quick Loops for Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs be Left in Place After use?
    If you reach your kayaking destination you can leave the Quick Loops for Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs # TH530 in place as you will be re-using them again making your return trip. Once you get home, however, they should be removed. The reason is if you are using these and something like the Thule Hull-A-Port XT # TH848 to carry your kayaks, the Quick Loops will not have any slack on them when not in use and if you are using them at the front they could potentially be lost with normal, everyday...

  • Easy Way to Tie Off Kayak Bow and Stern on a 2010 Subaru Outback
    There might be a place under your 2010 Subaru Outback to tie off a kayak but I have a better option for you. You can use the Thule Quick Loops, # TH530. You close the cylinder under the hood and rear hatch and tie off the bow and stern to the strap loops that will be on the outside of the vehicle. I have linked a video featuring these Quick Loops for you.

  • Do Thule Quick Loops Need to be Encased in Metal?
    You can use the Quick Loops for Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs # TH530 on your 2016 Honda CR-V. They do not need to be encased in metal, just make sure they are located as securely as possible. For bow/stern tie-down straps you can use the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops # TH855XT.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier and Foot Pads for a Roof Rack on a 2014 Mazda CX-5 with a Rhino Roof Rack
    If you already have a roof rack with crossbars all you need for your 2014 Mazda CX-5 is a kayak carrier in order to transport your 2 kayaks safely. I recommend the Rhino Rack roof mount kayak J-style carrier # S512 with extension # RRS512X because you can carry 2 kayaks on their sides with the J-style cradles. The carrier will include 4 tie-down straps to secure your kayaks to the carrier. I recommend getting the Thule Quick Loops bow/stern tie-downs # TH530 because they will provide...

I also contacted Yakima regarding their ShowBoat 66 Slide-Out Rear Load Assist Kayak Carrier # Y04068 and they were confident this rack will provide clearance of your spoiler and will work for you.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2010 Honda CR-V to Carry Two Kayaks
    The roof rack I highly recommend for your 2010 Honda CR-V is from Inno because it uses 51 inch crossbars, which are the longest available for your vehicle so you have the most possible room to carry your kayaks and make it as easy as possible to load them. This roof rack consists of: - Inno Aero Crossbars # INXB130-2 - Inno Through Feet for Aero Crossbars # INXS350 - Custom Fit Kit for Inno Roof Rack Feet # INTR121 This rack has a 140 lb weight capacity which is more than enough...

  • 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...

  • Carrying Two Kayaks with the Thule Hull-A-Port Carrier on a 2018 Audi A4 Allroad
    The Thule Hull-A-Port XT Kayak Carrier, part # TH848, can actually carry two kayaks on its own. The only additional thing needed to carry your second kayak on your 2018 Audi A4 Allroad is another set of straps, like etrailer's Cam Buckle Cinch Straps, part # E98876-4. I've linked to a video installation of how to do this. However, if you would rather use two of the Hull-A-Ports for a more balanced look, then you can definitely do that. These carriers are designed to leave plenty of space...

  • Is Stabilization Strap Required for Bike Rack on 2014 Subaru Forester w/Curt Class III Trailer Hitch
    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...

  • Where Can the Bow and Stern on a Kayak be Tied Down to On a 2010 Ford Mustang GT

Instant tie down point and they will not damage your 2010 Ford Mustang GT. I have included a link to a video review of these Quick Loops for you.

    You can tie off the bow or stern of the canoes to a single point such as the safety chain loop on a trailer hitch or a tow hook. Provided that the canoe is secured to a safe place at the front and rear of the vehicle and cannot come loose and does not affect normal use of the vehicle you ca attached then wherever you want. Thule also has a neat item, quick loops # TH530. These tie downs have a cylinder that you would close under the hood or trunk of a vehicle while leaving the strap...

  • How Does the Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap Work with the Thule T2 Platform Bike Rack
    To use the Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap, # 18050, with a bike you would normally attach the # 18050 support strap at the trunk lip near the back glass on the vehicle. With the Thule T2 bike rack, # TH9045, you would need to find a place to attach the hook on the end of the support strap so that the strap and buckle do not contact the vehicle. One option I have come up with is to use a Quick Loop Tie-Down, # TH530, along with a continuous loop strap like part # 753-2030-03. You can...

    The Stacker # TH830 will fit on your 2008 Nissan Xterra, however the Thule Xadapt3 # THXADAPT3, longer installation bolts, will be needed to fit around the Xterra's factory crossbars. I spoke with my contact at Thule and he confirmed that The Stacker requires the Xadapt3 bolts for your Xterra.

    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.

  • Recommended Carrier for Two Kayaks for Yakima Round Crossbars on 2008 Toyota Highlander
    Because of the integral rollers, I really like the Yakima SweetRoll, part # Y04074. During a recent training session conducted here by the folks at Yakima, we got to test the SweetRoll Kayak Carrier. We were all impressed by how much easier the rollers made the task of loading a kayak. Due to the width of two kayaks sitting side by side, you should make sure your round crossbars are long enough. At a minimum, you'd need the # Y00409 58 inch bars. Each carrier includes two tie-down...

    For your 2019 Honda Civic Coupe I recommend going with the Inno roof rack that uses the Flush Feet because it is the only roof rack that currently fits which has a great OEM look with the aero-style bars. The parts that you need for this are the 42" crossbars # INXB108-2, Flush Feet # INXS200, and Fit Kit # INK683. This system comes with locks to secure it to your roof and a 100 lb weight capacity that allows you to carry your kayak. Then for a kayak carrier I highly recommend the Thule...
