I have ordered several products from Etrailer over the past few months-a Yakima roof rack; ski rack; kayak rack and accessories. Every product has been shipped and delivered promptly along with constant communication about timelines. I also find Etrailer has excellent videos and instructions/questions and answers about product specifications and installation. Very pleased.

Great product for securing the front and rear of a kayak. Once assembled its quick and easy to use. The ratchet holds the line taut without loosening. Just give a tug on the line to test tightness during a trip. I did need a refresher on how to tie a bowline knot. My boy scout days have long been over. Would buy again.

  • Safety Chains Recommendation For Trailer Carrying Kayak
    If you are talking about safety chains that act like a backup if the trailer should become disconnected, I recommend the Laclede Safety Chain , part # 2118-348-04. This chain is 48 inches long and features 7/16 inch hooks on both ends. They are rated Class lll and have a 5,000 lb minimum breaking strength. If you are asking about tie-downs for your kayak on a trailer you tow behind your vehicle you will want to make sure the bow and stern are both secured. When kayaks are carried...

  • Will Kayak Carriers Work With TracRac Ladder Rack Bars for a 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500?
    The TracRac SR, such as TA21781-02, uses four-inch wide crossbars, which rules out standard kayak carriers that are meant to fit, at most, 3-1/2 inch crossbars. You can still transport your kayak using your TracRac, but it would have to be done using just the bow/stern tie-downs, such as the Yakima # Y04031, as well as tie-down straps such as the Malone # MPG307-12.

  • Strap Recommendation for Use with Malone Foam Block Kayak Carrier
    The Yakima ratcheting Bow and Stern tie downs, # Y04031, work well with the Malone Ladder Rack foam blocks part # MPG159. The straps are 12 feet long and have a weight capacity of 150 lbs.

  • Kayak Carrier For 2 Kayaks That Fits Square Crossbars For Occasional Use
    We do have a carrier that will fit your square crossbars so you can haul a pair of kayaks, and since you are only going to be using it on occasion, the best option is going to be a post-style carrier. These are just as effective as J-style carriers, and will save you the expense of having to purchase two separate carriers for both kayaks. For your two kayaks I recommend an option from Thule: - Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830 This carrier will fit your square...

  • Replacement Rope for Yakima Bow-Stern Tie Down Kit That is Longer than the 12 Foot Original Length
    The rope used in the Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops # Y04031 is 1/4" diameter x 12' long and a basic nylon rope. Camco Braided Cord - Polypropylene/Polyester - 50' Long # CAM51004 will work as well.

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Rack Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Volt
    The spread of the Inno roof racks like the part numbers # INXB123-130, # INXS250, and # INK624 is narrower at 26 inches but this still is the best option for carrying two kayaks like witih the Yakima JayLow part # Y04073 which can carry up to 2 kayaks. The JayLow comes with straps for one kayak. So for additional straps you'd want to use the part # Y04031 and you'd be set. None of the hitch mounted load supports we carry fit 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches.

  • How to Carry a Fishing Kayak on the Roof of a 2019 Toyota RAV4
    Yes you can substitute for longer bars on your 2019 Toyota RAV4. The Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars 47" # TH711200 have a more factory look because they don't stick out too far. I attached a video below with this set on a 2019 Toyota RAV4 and you can see how they don't stick out too far. To go wider you will need to use the Thule Rapid Podium Feet # TH460R and the fit kit for your car # THKIT3177 The 47" bars are recommended but you can go wider as long as you don't extend past your mirrors....

  • Does Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier Fit Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars on 2017 Toyota Camry Sedan
    You made a couple of great choices with the kayak carrier and roof rack for your Camry, and I can confirm that the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbars are 100 percent compatible with the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. The carrier will fit perfectly on Rhino-Rack crossbars, and comes with tie-down straps for a single kayak, so if you wanted to use it to carry two kayaks you would need the Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes # Y04031. Additionally, you can lock the JayLow to the roof rack...

  • Does Curt Kayak Carrier Come with Tie-Downs to Secure Kayak
    The Curt J-Style Kayak Carrier # C18320 comes with tie downs to secure the kayak to the carrier, but it doesn't come with bow and stern tie-downs. We recommend using bow and stern tie-downs because it just further secures your kayak and helps to keep it from sliding back and forth if you have any extreme conditions while driving. I recommend either picking up the Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops # Y04031 or just going with our J-Style Kayak Carrier # e98878...

  • J-Style Kayak Carrier Compatible w/ Yakima HD Roof Rack Crossbars
    Because the Yakima HD have the accessory slot in the top of the rail, and the crossbar is 3 x 1 inches, it'll be compatible with J-Style kayak carriers that either mount using the slot or clamp around the crossbar. The Yakima JayLow kayak carrier you've looked at, part # Y04073 will work with crossbars up to 3-1/2 x 1-11/16 inches, so it'll work perfectly with the Yakima HD crossbars. This rack will allow you to carry up to 2 kayaks, but for 2 kayaks, you'll need an extra # Y04031...

  • Can One J-Style and One Saddle Style Kayak Carrier Be Used On 2014 Subaru Outback
    In order to carry two kayaks on a 2014 Subaru Outback you'll need to carry them both on their side, the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier part # Y04073 would actually allow you to carry both with only one set of cradles. I would however add the Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes part # Y04031 and Yakima Cinch Straps part # Y05006 since you are carrying two boats as the above only comes with enough tie-downs for one. The Yakima SweetRoll Kayak Carrier would not be a good option even for one of...

It is a very simple and affordable system that can be used to haul kayaks, canoes, ladders, or other long items than cannot fit in the vehicle. The weight capacity is 80lbs and the maximum load dimensions are 14 feet long and 3 feet wide. Straps are included, but you may end up needing to use Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops -...

  • Ladder Rack Recommendation for Carrying Kayak with 2018 Nissan Titan and Utili-Track System
    It sounds like you like to use your 2018 Nissan Titan for recreational use and because of that the Yakima OverHaul HD is the perfect ladder rack for you. For this ladder rack you can either get it with the 68" Bars as part # Y01151-5868 or you can get it with the 78" Bars as part # Y01151-5968. The even better thing about this system is that it actually uses the Utili-Track System on your Titan for the installation so you won't have to remove it.

  • Best Folding Kayak Carrier for Roof Rack With Small Amount of Clearance From Roof
    We have the perfect folding kayak carrier for your 2020 Honda CR-V with crossbars that have a small amount of clearance from your roof, the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. The reason the JayLow is the best is because it actually clamps to the side of your roof rack's crossbars so the fact you have clearance issues won't come into play with this particular carrier. I have added a photo which shows you how these clamp. The JayLow can carry one kayak in its J-style or two kayaks...

  • 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...

    I really like the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B that you referenced for your 2018 Toyota Camry because of its unique versatility and ease of installation/removal. For a kayak carrier to mount to these bars I recommend taking a look at the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. These durable cradles can support 1 kayak when in the J-style position or both of your kayaks when in the vertical position. This is a perfect choice for the Monkey Bars because of the included...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2 Kayaks on 2019 Mazda CX-5 with Side Rails
    For your 2019 Mazda CX-5 I recommend going with aftermarket crossbars for a couple of reasons. The first is that aftermarket bars will give you more crossbar space to work with on your roof to better accommodate your 2 kayaks (and possibly more). The factory bars for your CX-5 likely feature a flush design where the bars don't actually extend past the side rails. This allows for a sleek appearance but reduces the amount of mounting space you have for your items. Aftermarket bars will...

  • 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)...

In order to safely secure 2 kayaks to these crossbars you will need to add a kayak carrier. For this I recommend the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. This is a really nice,...
