Inno Surf/SUP/Kayak/Canoe Locker dimensions

Inno Board Locker release straps

This locking carrier lets you safely and securely transport 1 kayak or canoe, 2 stand-up paddleboards, or 2-3 surfboards on your vehicle's roof rack. The carrier is easy to load and use with integrated straps and ratcheting hand knobs. Adjustable pads protect your boat or boards during transport, and board pads provide a cushion between the boat and your crossbars. The carrier also installs easily with clamp-on hardware to most crossbars.

Easy-to-Load System

Inno Board Locker release straps

The carrier is easy to use and easy to load. There are 2 long straps that stretch over your cargo and secure to 2 short straps. The straps are tightened in place with ratcheting knobs. When transporting a kayak or canoe, load the boat onto your crossbars first. Then connect the straps over the boat - securing the wire looms on the ends of the short straps to the hooks on the ends of the long straps - and tighten them with the hand knobs.

Inno Board Locker load

When transporting surfboards or SUPs, connect the straps first. Slide your board onto your crossbars under the connected straps, then tighten down the straps with the ratcheting knobs.

Inno Board Locker release

When it's time to remove your cargo, lift the tension release levers under the covers to loosen the straps and unhook them.

Protective Padding

Inno Board Locker padding

Rubber coating on the straps and adjustable corner pads help to protect your boat and boards from scratches and scuffs during transport. Board pads are also included to provide a cushion for your boat. Just wrap the pads around your crossbars and secure them with Velcro straps.

Simple Installation

Inno Board Locker on roof

The carrier is simple to install and requires no tools. It clamps easily with included hardware to most crossbars. To install, flip the cam lever on the mounting clamp to loosen the bolt and release it from the lower mounting bracket. Slide the bracket under the crossbar and reattach the bolt to the bracket. Tighten the knob and close the lever.

Inno Board Locker adapters

Adapters are included for mounting the carrier on different crossbar styles. Adapter blocks let you mount the carrier to round or square crossbars. Rubber pads are also included for use when mounting the carrier to aero, elliptical, or factory crossbars.

Locking Covers

Inno Surf/SUP/Kayak/Canoe Locker on lock

Four locking covers secure your boat or boards to the carrier and the carrier to your crossbars. With the covers locked and closed the ratcheting knobs cannot be turned and the tension-release levers cannot be accessed to loosen the straps. The locked covers also deny access to the mounting hardware so the carrier cannot be removed from your crossbars.

Inno Locker Watersport Carrier w/ Crossbar Pads - Locking - Clamp On - 1 Boat or 2 Boards - INA446

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (7 Customer Reviews)

This locking carrier lets you transport 1 kayak or canoe or 2 SUPs on your roof rack. Ratcheting straps connect over boat or boards and tighten with integrated hand knobs to secure gear. Crossbar pads included. Easy, clamp-on installation.

- INA446

Heavy duty. Easy enough to install. Instructions aren't great, but you can figure it out. The crane is a good idea in theory, but could use some design refinement as it only lifts just enough to tuck a paddleboard underneath. The rachet system is great and the rubber coverings for the wires are super helpful for preventing scratches.

- INA446

I love this product. I am using it on a jeep wrangler that I pull into a garage with. They fit perfectly so I don't have to take them on and off if I am paddle boarding a few days in a row,but if I do take them on and off, it's a very quick process as well. I would highly recommend.

- INA446

The Inno Locker was easy to install and it looks great on my vehicle. I used it to carry a SUP board to some lakes about 500 miles from my home and the board was secured the entire trip:)

- INA446

This carrier is super simple to use and really secure. The crane support that holds the cables up make it easy to slide the paddle boards into position underneath them. You'll want to make sure you don't over-tighten the padded cables as they can get really tight, but you'll definitely have peace of mind that the boards aren't going anywhere. And the built-in locks are really nice when making pit stops on those longer trips.

- INA446

Carrier works great with two boards. Installation took less time than it takes to strap two boards on the vehicle. Works on any width board Delivery was prompt. Customer service was fantastic.

- INA446

Easy set up. Feels secure. Pads don't fit our factory cross bars very well.

    I can see how one might think that, but no type of crossbar is included with the Inno carrier you asked about, which is the following part: - Inno Locker Watersport Carrier with Crossbar Pads # INA446 As the title says, it does include pads that you can put on your crossbars, but other than those pads, the Inno Locker # INA446 is just the strap mechanism that attaches to the crossbars you currently have.

    Your best option is to use the Thule Compass Watersport Carrier # TH890000. The Compass is compatible with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars, including the ones on your 2019 Honda Passport. It can easily accommodate your two canoes, as long as their combined weight is not over 130 lbs, and they are not more than 36 inches wide (at their widest point). The Compass will allow you to carry your two canoes in a vertical (post-style) position so you have one on each...

  • Canoe Carrier Recommendation for a 44 inch Wide Canoe on a 2001 Chevy Suburban
    I spoke with my contact at INNO and they said that due to the shorter crossbars on your 2001 Chevy Suburban the part # INA446 would not be able to open wide enough for a canoe that measures 44 inches at the widest beam. The best solution we are going to have would be the Thule Goal Post # TH997 that installs in the hitch of the Suburban and then gives you a wide crossbar to mount the rear of the canoe on. I attached a review video for this rack as well. Since you would be loading the...

  • What Types of Roof Rack Carriers Are Designed for Snow and Water Skis
    The Inno Locker Watersport Carrier # INA446 isn't ideal for carrying skis but I wouldn't say it's totally impossible. I would much rather recommend you a ski rack like the Rhino Rack part # RR574 which was designed for the thickness of water and snow skis so it would definitely work well. The boards the # INA446 was designed to carry are much thicker than what skis are commonly so it wouldn't be ideal.

    For your 2018 GMC Acadia that has factory raised rails that run front to back on the roof we have the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RRVA118B-2 and # RRSX100 as a confirmed fit that would work great with the Inno Locker kayak carrier part # INA446 that you referenced. The rack has more than enough weight capacity for your 85 lb kayak as it has a 165 lb weight capacity. I really like the Rhino Rack roof racks as you end up getting a roof rack that is on par with the more expensive...

  • Paddleboard Carrier Recommendation for 3 Boards for a 2005 Chevy Silverado
    For a 3 board paddle board carrier the Inno Paddle Board Carrier part # INA446 would work well. You will need a roof rack to carry this carrier though. For that the Rhino Rack Vortex bar setup that consists of part numbers # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK227 would be a great option that has been confirmed as a fit.

    Between the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier - Locking - Clamp On - 1 Boat or 2 Boards # INA446 and Yakima SUPDawg Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - 2 Boards # Y04075 I recommend the Inno # INA446. The reason for this is I find the ratcheting system on the Inno # INA445 to be superior to the cam buckle style strap used on the SUPDawg # Y04075. In addition the Inno # INA446 will fit two long boards, or 3 short boards, but also can be used to carry one kayak or one canoe allowing...

  • Does the Inno Locker Come as a Set For Use on Both Crossbars

  • Can Inno Locker Watersport Carrier Be Used To Transport Long Board In Sock Cover?
    The instructions for Inno Locker Watersport Carrier w/ Crossbar Pads # INA446 do state that you should not transport a longboard in a bag. This is mainly due to the fact that the longer boards will have more wind drag than a short board, and a bag could allow the board to potentially slide out of the bag or carrier when the vehicle is traveling at high speeds. Since your sock is thin and it is not a thick bag, it may be fine, but it is hard to say for sure. I still would recommend transporting...

  • Does Inno Locker Watersport Carrier # INA446 Have a Weight Capacity
    The Inno Locker Watersport Carrier w/ Crossbar Pads # INA446 that you referenced weighs a total of 13 lbs but actually does not have a weight capacity since the crossbars of your vehicle are what would be carrying the weight of the kayak. So basically this does not have a weight capacity and the number you saw happens to be the overall weight of the rack.

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler for 2011 Honda Odyssey Carrying Kayak or Canoe
    For your canoe and kayak, the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier w/ Crossbar Pads - Locking - Clamp On - 1 Boat or 2 Boards # INA446 is my recommendation. In regards to adding a transmission cooler to your 2011 Honda Odyssey it is never a bad idea but it isn't required.

    We will be able to get your two canoes to wherever you need to go with your 2020 Subaru Outback! It is always best using a system that is recommended to be used with your vehicle. One reason why the longer AirFlow2 rails # MPG217 aren't recommended is because how the feet clamp to your raised side rails. They do not wrap around the rails all the way like the Yakima TimberLine Towers # Y00147. When the rails stick out farther than your roof it is okay as long as they are not sticking...

  • Difference Between Inno Surfboard/Kayak Carriers INA744 vs INA446
    The two Inno racks you referenced are pretty similar but the difference is that the part # INA446 is geared more for carrying a kayak or 2 boards whereas the # INA744 is geared more for carrying boards. It can carry up to 3 short boards or 2 long boards. Basically the kayak geared rack has higher brackets that lock down for securing a tall kayak and the board orientated carrier has lower brackets for the straps.

  • Saddles with Locks for a 95 Pound Kayak on a 2016 GMC Acadia
    Your best bet is actually the saddle mounts. Unfortunately, there's no good J-Style racks that are locking and will have the weight capacity for your kayak. Saddle mounts directly transfer the weight to the bars, so they are a lot easier for fitting heavier kayaks. I have two saddle-style recommendations for you that include locking features and can support the weight of your kayak. The first is the Inno Locker, part # INA446. This is a strap-down carrier that will carry the kayak...

You need RidgeLine towers part # Y00145, adapter part # Y03541 and fit kit part # Y06009. The Yakima HighRoad roof bike rack part # Y02114 allows you to carry 1 bike on the roof of the Mini Cooper.

If you would rather go with a hitch-mounted bike rack, I recommend first installing the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch # 24808. This is a Class I trailer hitch that will provide a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening and a 200 pound tongue weight capacity.

This carrier clamps around your crossbars but if you have T-Slots you can use the Adapter # THXADAPT12 which can provide some security if you have locking crossbars.

  • Canoe Carrier Recommendation for Use on Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    Due to the small size of the Yakima Rack and Roll trailers like the part # Y08107 you really can't tie the bow and stern to anything and have it be very effective.
