Inno Surf/SUP/Kayak/Canoe Locker dimensions

Inno Surf/SUP/Kayak/Canoe Locker

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 the carrier installs in your crossbar T-slots with included hardware.

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 load

Rubber coating on the straps and adjustable corner pads help to protect your boat and boards from scratches and scuffs during transport. For additional protection, board pads (sold separately) can be added to your crossbars to provide a cushion for your cargo.

Simple Installation

Inno Surf/SUP/Kayak/Canoe Locker install

You can install the carrier quickly and easily into the T-slots - or channels - in the tops of your crossbars on with the included hardware. To install the carrier you must first remove your crossbars' endcaps and the rubber strips in the T-slots. Insert square bolts into the T-slots where you want to mount the carrier. Slide the carrier over the bolts and secure it to your crossbars with washers, long nuts, and a hex wrench.

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.

I can only comment on what my daughter has said, since it was a Christmas gift, and she lives out of state. It works perfectly and has been very durable.

  • Best Way To Carry a Surfboard on a TracRac Ladder Rack
    I do have an option for you to carry a surfboard on your TracRac Ladder Rack but due to the shear size of the crossbars we do not have a pad that will fit around them. Instead you will want to utilize the t-slots in the TracRac's crossbars. The Inno Locker Watersport Carrier part # INXA445 will mount into the slots atop the crossbar and provide you with a sturdy and secure attachment point for 1-2 surfboards. The above carrier is also lockable with two keys included. I have attached...

  • How To Carry A Canoe On a 2017 Ram 1500 With Folding Tonneau Cover
    I do have an option for you but the tonneau cover you have must be mounted inside the bed rails so that the stake pocket openings are free such as the BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover like part # BAK26203 for 6-1/2' beds or part # BAK26204 for 8' beds. If your tonneau cover is mounted inside the bed rails then you can you can use the Adarac Pro Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # A4000944 for 6-1/2' bed or part # A4000945 for 8' beds. In order to secure your canoe to this you can then...

  • Can Two Kayaks Be Carried on Adarac Ladder Rack of 2017 Ram 1500
    The Inno kayak carrier part # INXA445 can fit the top channel of the Adarac Aluminum Series truck bed ladder rack part # A4001219 that you referenced. To carry two kayaks you'd want two of the racks which the bars would easily accomodate since they are plenty long. Adarac does not offer a black version of this rack. If you wanted to paint you could but powder coat would be the most durable and what I'd recommend.

    For your 1991 Ford Van with rain gutters all you need to install an Inno roof rack is the part numbers # INB165 and # INSD and you'd be set. This attaches directly to the rain gutter and gives you a great fitting square bar roof rack.

  • How To Carry Two Surfboards On a TracRac Ladder Rack
    If you have the older TracRac branded ladder rack then channel mounts are the only option, the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier part # INXA445 is what I recommend. It comes with locks for security and is really the only carrier for this setup. It also works with the newer Thule branded TracRac ladder rack as well.

  • Paddleboard Carrier Solution for Thule TracRac Load Bars
    We have a paddleboard carrier from Inno part # INXA445 that can fit the TracRac ladder rack bars since it attaches to the top channel of them but we don't offer a padded carrier like the Malone you mentioned that's going to fit around the wider TracRac load bars. I attached a review video for this carrier for you to check out as well.

  • Will Inno Locker SUP Carrier Fit into Rhino-Rack T-Tracks?
    Yes! The Inno Locker Watersport Carrier # INXA445 will fit into the Rhino-Rack Aero Crossbars # RRVA150B-2. Good choice too since you won't have to worry about large clamps possibly snagging your folding top. There is no information about maximum height for the Inno Locker since height plus width plus curve of boats come into play Your two SUPs will fit though. We put a 13" tall kayak in there once and we were still able to tighten it down with no issue.

  • Can The Inno Locker Watersport Carrier Be Clamped Onto Crossbars?
    There is not an adapter that will allow the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier - Locking - Channel Mount - 1 Boat or 2 Boards # INXA445 to clamp onto crossbars since it utilizes the T-slot, so you will need to go with a different watersport carrier. If your crossbars are no wider than 3" and no taller than 1-1/4" then the Thule Top Deck Rooftop Kayak Carrier System with Tie Downs # TH881 will clamp-on without an issue. Another option that may work for you is the Yakima Crossbar Pads for...

  • Roof Rack for 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport With Naked Roof to Carry SUPs
    The best value for a roof rack for your 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport with a naked roof to carry your SUPs is going to be from Inno because it gives you a high-quality aerodynamic rack at a price that is less than other recognizable brands. The parts you need are the following: - Inno Aero Crossbars # INXB153-2 - Inno Through Feet for Aero Crossbars # INXS250 - Custom Fit Kit # INK766 Then to carry either 1 or 2 SUPs I highly recommend the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier # INXA445.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2015 Ford Edge with Glass Roof
    For your 2015 Ford Edge, the Rhino-Rack ROC25 Roof Rack for Naked Roofs - Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black # RR26XR is my recommendation for your roof rack. Then I recommend using the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier - Locking - Channel Mount - 1 Boat or 2 Boards # INXA445 which will give you the best clearance between your roof and the bars because it utilizes the tracks in the bars instead of wrapping around them.

  • Best Roof Rack and Surfboard Carrier for a 2020 Toyota 4Runner with the Raised Side Rails
    While it is true that price does typically reflect quality, when it comes to roof racks you will be just as happy with the performance of a middle-of-the-road aero-style rack as you would with one of the ones at a higher price-point. Because of this I highly recommend the Inno roof rack for your 2020 Toyota 4Runner with the raised side rails. This consists of 54" Aero Crossbars # INXB138-2 and the Through Feet # INXS150. It not only gives you the aerodynamic crossbars but the feet also...

    Glad to hear that you like the Rhino-Rack SG Roof Rack for Rain Gutters # RRSG59 on your 2020 Jeep Gladiator! The Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero-Style crossbars use standard dimensions to in all honestly you can use just about any of our canoe carriers or load stops, but it sounds like you would like some recommendations. In that case I really like the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier # INXA445 or the Lockrack Watersport Carrier # 339LRUNISETA for your canoe because they are easy to use and they...

    To install the larger Rhino Rack Pioneer platform part # RR42115BF on the roof of your 2020 Ram 1500 crew cab will require a roof rack installed on the naked roof. For that the Yakima HD rack part numbers # Y01158, #Y00146, # Y03541, and # Y06135 as it's the best fitting option withe most weight capacity. This is definitely not an install that requires a pro either as it's fairly easy and straightforward. Then for carrying your 2 SUPs we have the Inno Locker Carrier part # INXA445 which...

  • Will Yakima SupDawg fit on Yakima Overhaul Crossbars
    The Yakima SupDawg part # Y04075 that you referenced can fit the crossbars of the Yakima OverHaul part # Y01151 but it would do so by clamping around the bar. If you wanted carriers that install via the top channel of the bars I instead recommend the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier - Locking - Channel Mount - 1 Boat or 2 Boards # INXA445 or the Lockrack Watersport Carrier # 339LRUNISETA.

  • Roof Rack and Surfboard Carrier Recommendation for 2020 Toyota 4Runner
    I really like Rhino Rack's roof rack products. They might not have the name recognition that Thule or Yakima have but they make a high quality product at a decent price. Why spend more if you don't have to? I'd recommend the finished look of the Rhino Rack Vortex StealthBar roof rack, part # JA7970 for black or # JA7951 for silver.These bars have a clean, OEM look. For a surf/paddleboard carrier, I'd recommend the # INXA445 from Inno. This system will allow you to carry 2 long surfboards...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for Carrying a Kayak- 2019 Ford Escape with Bare Roof
    I'd highly recommend an Inno rack system for your vehicle. Inno provides a super-high quality product without the higher price tag seen with other brands that might be more universally well known. High value and top quality. Given the fact that you expressed an interest in transporting a kayak, using a through-bar system makes it easier for one person to get the kayak up on the vehicle roof. Pick up one end, place against the crossbar where it extends past the roof rack foot, then you...

We had a customer use the Yakima EvenKeep, # Y04052, on this ladder rack and it worked great. There is another option. The ladder rack crossbars have T-slots on the tops of the bars that allow roof accessories designed for T-slot installation to fit.

These bars are 3-1/8 inches wide by 1 inch tall and the # TH04997 mounting hardware you mentioned will fit bars just shy of 4 inches, so you will have no issue with this fit. There is not yet a fit for any of the Thule Roof boxes to the T-slot channel, but many other accessories have that clean mounting ability for you to take advantage of. Some examples...

I can't confirm this to be true for the Yakima SUPDawg # Y04075 on the wide TracRac crossbars because of their size. If you want the cleaner look, I instead recommend the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier - Locking - Channel Mount - 1 Boat or 2 Boards # INXA445 or the Lockrack Watersport Carrier # 339LRUNISETA.

For a fairing you would want the part # RRRF2. For a ski carrier I would recommend the # RR572 and then for carrying a wakeboard I would recommend a surf board carrier like part # INXA445.

    The BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover installs inside the bed rails so you can install a ladder rack which mounts in the stake pockets. That said, because of the way the ladder rack must install you don't have many options. The two I recommend looking at are the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH43003XT-785 which has adjustable uprights or the Adarac Aluminum Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # A4001227 which has fixed uprights. These can then both be used with...

    The Yakima SUPDawg Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - 2 Boards # Y04075 is not able to be mounted to the top of rails with t-slots. However, we do have an option that will fit your desires. I recommend the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier - Locking - Channel Mount - 1 Boat or 2 Boards # INXA445. This carrier will fit the T-slots of your crossbars, headache rack, or ladder rack. It comes with the locks included. I've attached a video to assist.

  • Is Whispbar T-Slot the Same Size as Other Brand Crossbars for Accessory Compatibility?
    The T-Slots in your Whispbar crossbars will be the same size as other manufacturers, so you will be able to utilize top channel mounted accessories like the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier - Locking - Channel Mount - 1 Boat or 2 Boards # INXA445 for example. The Whispbar crossbars are very wide and actually make the wrap around applications far more difficult to find compatible accessories.
