Adjustable, Fold-Down Arms

Adjustable Kayak Carrier

Each cradle has an integrated lever that allows you to adjust the upright arm to fit virtually any size kayak. Simply rotate both of the side levers forward and pivot the arm to the appropriate angle to ensure that your boat sits properly in the cradle. Notched pivot points allow for precise positioning. Rotate the levers back to lock each arm into place.

Curt Kayak Carrier Mounting Clamps

Installation is quick and easy and doesn't require any tools. The included mounting clamps on these cradles fit round, square, aero/elliptical, crescent-shaped, and most factory crossbars. First, position the cradles so that they are lined up correctly and are sitting at least 24" apart. Then slide the mounting clamps underneath your roof rack's crossbars and attach them to the cradles with the included hardware. Use the included hand knobs to easily tighten and secure the clamps around your crossbars.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Watersport Carriers

  • 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...
