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. 388469

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

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

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

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. 401961

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

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. My recommendation is a side loading carrier as an attractive alternative for hatchbacks,...

  • 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...

What will you be transporting on your CR-V, and if it is bikes, how many are you looking to carry? If you can get back to me with that I can try and find you the best solution.

  • Making Easy to Access Tie Down Points for a Canoe on a 2017 Subaru Crosstrek
    I have the perfect product for you and your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek. I recommend the Quick Loops for Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs - Qty 2 Item # TH530. 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. I have linked a video below showing how they work.

If your 2015 Toyota RAV4 has raised rails that run front to back then I recommend the Thule WingBar roof rack that consists of the 53 inch WingBars # TH711400 in silver or # TH711420 in black and the Evo raised rail feet # TH710401. I've linked a video of this rack installed on a RAV4. If you don't have the side rails that run front to back on the roof of the Toyota then you can use the Rola Rail Extreme DFE Series Roof Rack...

This will work well with the SportRack Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - J-Style - Folding - Roof Mount # SR5513 which is rated for a kayak up to 17 feet long and up to 36 inches wide with a maximum weight of 75 lbs. This combination will work very well for your vehicle...

  • 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.

    Thule offers their Outrigger II Load Support Bar, part # TH847, for use with their standard square load 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 Outrigger II can support a kayak or other water craft of up to 75 lbs weight. It includes a load-stop to prevent the kayak from slipping off the bar during loading and unloading. Please note that 2 inches of the...

  • Recommendation to Attach Rightline Gear Cargo Hatch Saddlebag to 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
    It sounds like you are considering adding the Quick Loops # TH530 from Thule to attach the Rightline Gear Cargo Hatch Saddlebag # RL100B90 to your vehicle. Just let me know if this is not the case. While there isn't a reason that these Quick Loops couldn't be used, I do recommend sticking with the included straps on the bag by attaching them to the roof rack crossbars on your Outback Wagon. This is simply going to provide a much stronger connection point for the cargo bag, especially if...

  • 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...

  • 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...

It has a telescoping design that will allow paddle boards up to 34 inches wide. This carrier fits round, square, aero, elliptical and most factory crossbars, and can hold up to 2 paddleboards....
