These ropes work great and are so easy to use. I had one set for my canoe and ordered these for the kayak. We'll bring both boats on our vacation. The ordering and help from etrailer went smoothly.

I just received my ratcheting Kayak tie towns to replace my old friction-based setup. They arrived very quickly and for the best price online. Having borrowed a friend's tie-downs in the past, I decided it was time for my own. I'm happy to report that they are very well made and a cinch to assemble using the provided diagram. To use, just attach the hook to your car's underside tow loop or other sturdy location. Then pass the provided nylon web loop through your kayak's locking U-bolt (or carry toggle), and join both ends to the provided carabiner. Draw the rope tight and tie off the remaining length and you're good to go! It's actually faster than reading this review!

The service was excellent. My interaction with your team was accurate, friendly and professional. Given COVID-impacted potential in order processing, Christina tracked my order and followed up in a professional, accurate and friendly manor. I have received my product and look forward to making good use of it, for years to come. I would not hesitate to order from your service again.

This was my 3rd order from etrailer this month. The videos were extremely helpful and all the Thule products arroived when I was told they would and were exactly as described. I have been very impressed with they customer service and their follow up process post-order to make sure you are happy. Will definitely order from them again!

Great to work with. I was away from home and wanted my order delivered to the address I was at. I failed to enter the correct address when I placed the order. On the day of delivery I phoned Etrailer to let them know of my mistake. They notified UPS for me and I received the package that afternoon. The product was exactly what I was looking for.

by:

pretty good ratchet. My only complain is that the clip (part connected to the black case) is small. So if you try to clip it onto a larger clip, its does not make a very big opening. Anyways, good part. Very solid construction, metal. Mine has taken a serious beating and still going strong. Rope very good quality. Does not fray.


Comments
Ratchet very good, several trips, rope stuck under front tire, did not break ratchet. Solid

Needed to replace Thule tie downs prior to a Kayaking trip, as those I have had for many years were in bad shape. Several others I paddle with had same situation so I bought several sets. fast delivery was important and etrailer got them to me fast. Thule products are high quality, nothing more to be said!



- TH855XT
by:

Good quality product. My only recommendation would be to add about 1 ft of a rubber covering at the bottom of the ropes, near the hook. This would ensure that bumpers do not fray or sever the rope when the load is strapped down.

Ask the Experts about this Thule Accessories and Parts

  • How to Transport a 90 lb Canoe on the Roof of a 2017 Dodge Durango
    I do have a solution for you but unfortunately there are no adapter kits available to carry your 38" wide canoe. You need to use a different roof rack system or use a canoe carrier. For a roof rack system I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack which includes 54" crossbars # RRVA137S-2 for silver or # RRVA137B-2 for black, the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and the DK Fit Kit # DK299. This gives you longer crossbars that have a max weight capacity of 165 lbs. To carry your...

  • What J-Style Kayak Carrier will Fit My Older-Style TracRac TracONE 27000-01 Bars?
    I have a great solution for you. I confirmed with my contact at Thule that since you have the discontinued version of the TracRac TracONE Universal ladder rack 27000-01, there are currently no j-style carriers available to fit onto the crossbars of that particular rack. However, if you still have the side load-stops, you can simply purchase the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops - 13' - Qty 2 # TH855XT for each watersport accessory you have. If you do not have...

  • 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.

  • How are Kayak Bow and Stern Tie-Down Straps Used?
    Those are bow and stern tie-down straps. They are necessary for tying your kayak down so it doesn't fly off your vehicle's roof. Tie-down straps like these are required in order to transport a kayak and come with many Thule products, including the Hullavator # TH898. I have added a link to a video showing you exactly how they work so you can keep your kayak safely secured to your Volvo.

  • Weight Capacity and Rope Size for Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT
    The Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT are specifically for tying down canoes, kayaks, and other watersport items where typically weight is not an issue. The capacity though is 150 pounds with 1/4 inch rope. I checked specifically with the instructions on the Thule site.

  • Recommendations for Transporting my Kayak with the VX01
    You can secure a kayak using this basket but you will need to make sure it stays put on the rack by using the Rhino-Rack Cam Buckle Cinch Straps # RTD3 and Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops # TH855XT to secure it to your vehicle. If your concerned about scratching your Kayak I recommend the Rightline Gear Kit # RL100K10 that includes foam pads to protect your kayak and roof basket.

  • Extra Strap Recommendation for Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier for Carrying 3 Kayaks
    You'll want the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT for additional straps with the Thule Stacker part # TH830. You'll want two sets of these since you have three kayaks and the Stacker comes with straps for one kayak. I attached a review video for this strap kit for you to check out as well.

  • Do Bow/Stern Tie-Downs Need To Be Attached to Hood and Rear of Vehicle To Secure Kayaks
    The Thule Stacker # TH830 is a great solution to secure a few 10 foot kayaks on their side. The carrier does include a set of tie-downs but you will need to add extra straps # TH855XT and # 753-2030-02 for all 3 of the kayaks. When actually securing the kayaks onto the roof of your CR-V I absolutely recommend attaching the ropes to the front and back ends of the vehicle. This prevents wind during travel from catching underneath the kayak and trying to lift it off the roof. Simply looping...

  • Does Thule Stacker TH830 4-Kayak Carrier Require Additional Straps and Ropes for 4 Kayaks
    Using the Thule Stacker # TH830 multi-kayak carrier with 4 kayaks will require additional bow/stern ropes and additional straps since the carrier comes equipped with enough for one boat. Each of the 4 kayaks must have its own set of bow/stern tie-down ropes # TH855XT or something similar as well as its own straps to secure it to the Stacker, such as # 753-2030-02, or again, a similar item like # E98876-4. You can certainly use another brand of straps/ropes like # IMF12637 so long as...

  • How Do I Tie Down 3 Kayaks On My Roof Rack With The Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack
    The weight limit for the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Post Style - Folding - 4 Kayaks, part # RRS520, is 165lbs, so it can support the weight of your kayaks. If you have an aftermarket roof rack, and it is not an Inno roof rack, that is also the weight limit of your rack. (If it is an Inno Roof Rack that weight limit is 120 lbs.) That 165 lbs includes the weight of your roof rack, your roof rack accessories, and the weight of the items you will be carrying. If your...

  • Roof Rack And 3-Kayak Carrier for 2016 Honda Accord
    The Thule WingBar Evo roof rack, which would use the # TH711400 crossbars, the # TH710501 roof rack feet and the # TH145208 fit kit. This kit would work well, and would provide 165 lb capacity as you stated. Since you're wanting to carry more than two kayaks, The Stacker from Thule, part # TH830 would be my recommendation. The Stacker includes tie down straps and bow/stern tie downs for one kayak, so you'd need additional sets using part # E98876-4 which includes 4 additional straps and...

  • Adding Rollers, a Winch, and Straps to a Malone MicroSportXT
    We have all of the components you are looking for to turn your MicroSportXT, part # MPG460XT, into a mini boat trailer! For your rollers, I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunk, part # DL21741. They have a 5' span so they will reach across your crossbars. To mount these, use the Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Bracket, part # DL21742. I've linked to a video installation of both of these for you to look at. Please note that you will need to find a 1-1/4" u-bolt and mounting...

    Yes this will be a large load on your 2018 Jeep Compass but the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier # 339-LRUNISETX and your Thule Aeroblade Roof Rack # TH7601-TH7602, # THKIT3164. From what I could information I could find on your Rogue River 14, is that it is 37" wide and 89 lb. That falls under the max width of 47-1/2" and max weight of 175 lb. This is a really good way to transport your canoe because of the wrap around design of the arms but I would still pick up a set of bow and...

  • Parts Needed for Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers on 2016 Mercedes GLA 250
    In addition to the # TH711200 and # TH460R you will also need the foot pack # THKIT4049 to complete your roof rack kit.This will give you a great looking roof rack with aerodynamic crossbars that will reduce wind noise that normally comes with installing a roof rack. With that said, the issue you're going to run up against is twofold. First, the crossbars are only 47" long, and fitting 3 kayaks is going to be a tight squeeze on those bars; secondly, although the # TH711200 crossbars...

  • Thule Kayak Carrier Compatibility with Rhino-Rack Vortex 2500 Crossbars
    The 815 part number is for a basic version of the Hull-A-Port # TH834 kayak carrier sold by some lesser retail outlets. The Hull-A-Port carrier fits on round, square, elliptical, aero and most factory crossbars. Rhino-Rack Vortex 2500 bars are the aero type but are not compatible. Kayak carriers like this Thule include the required tie-down straps to secure the bow and stern ends for safe transport. If you need tie downs you can use Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT.

  • Can Thule Stacker Be Used With 3 Kayaks Weighing 40lbs Each?
    Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830 actually would work well for you because the weight of your kayaks will be on the crossbars, not directly on the Stacker. The Stacker will only be taking a fraction of the weight when the kayaks are leaning against it. Just make your your roof and roof rack can handle the 120-130lbs you are adding. If you don't already have a roof rack setup then I would go with Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars Silver - 49" # RRVA126S-2 and Legs #...

  • Can J-Style Kayak Rack Be Used With Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack # EM07705
    The crossbars on the Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack # EM07705 measure 3-1/4 inches wide and at the tallest part of the crossbar they are 1-1/4 inches tall. These crossbars are more of a triangle shape so the peak in the middle as you can see in the attached photo. From the measurements on the photo you sent of your kayak J Style rack, the ladder rack will not be compatible. I recommend using the tie-downs on the ladder rack and pads like part # RRRWP03. For tie-downs I recommend...

You'd need three additional sets of the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops # TH855XT since the Stacker only comes with one set. The Wingbar rack I referenced is one of the nicest options on the market as it gives you a set of crossbars...

It's compatible with several Thule cross bars and most factory roof racks. For padding for the kayaks I recommend the Malone Rack Pads for Crossbars # MPG314. They wrap around the cross bars and protect your kayaks, or whatever else you have...

    To fit 3 kayaks on the roof of your 2010 Chevrolet Equinox with the Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830 you would more than likely need to use extended crossbars depending on the exact dimensions of your 3 kayaks. I recommend the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 which measures 58" long and will give you the additional room needed to make sure your kayaks will fit on your roof. You will also need two of the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops...

    I do have a solution for you, however the kayak saddles you mentioned are no longer available from the manufacturer. Because of the larger size of the TracRac crossbars, we have found that the best solution for transporting kayaks is with the Thule Surf Pad # TH845000. These will wrap around the bars to protect the kayaks during transport. You can then just add a set of Tie-Downs # TH855XT to secure everything into place. I have attached a couple short video demonstrations on this system...

    Technically you could put anything on the Erickson truck bed ladder rack # EM07706 as long as it is within the 800 pound weight capacity and the load was properly secured. On a boat you will need to secure the bow and stern so I recommend tie down kit # TH855XT.

    I may have a solution for you, however looking at the size and specs for your Hobie Island Tandem Kayak, I'm not sure that a standard roof rack and carrier like the Rhino-Rack Nautic # RR570 you referenced is your best solution. The weight of the kayak, which I found to be around 240 pounds, might exceed the capacity of your Ram's roof. You might also have a hard time safely securing its large size to standard cradles like these. To transport the kayak, a better option might be with...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for 4 Kayaks on 2017 Jeep Patriot
    According to Thule, you can have up to 5 small kayaks on the 47 inch load bars that fit on your 2017 Jeep Patriot. For your 4 kayaks I recommend Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830. This will allow you to carry up to 4 kayaks with a max length of 10 feet on your 2017 Jeep Patriot. You will need to get additional load straps # 753-2030-02 and # 853-5466 for each additional kayak. If you want the quick draw with ratchets and strap loops, you will want # TH855XT.

  • Are J-Style Kayak Carriers Compatible With The TracRac RacOne System?
    I do have a solution for you, however I spoke with my contact at Thule (who manufactures the TracRac systems) and he stated that J-Style Kayak carriers are not compatible with the TracOne Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TA27000B that you referenced in your question. This is because the crossbars on the ladder rack are simply too wide for the J-Style carriers to mount properly. I instead recommend looking at the Thule Surf Pad # TH845000 to protect and support your kayaks on the ladder rack....

    I do have a way for you to transport your 4 kayaks with your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 but unfortunately you won't be able to add crossbars or a ladder rack system to the truck bed with the tonneau cover installed. Any truck bed crossbar system will require mounting space either on the inside of the rails or on top of them and it looks like your cover would interfere with either of these designs. Because of this your only option (if you want to keep the tonneau cover) is to go with a roof...
