The Lockrack surf ski carrier lets you transport 1 surf ski on your roof rack crossbars without the need for load straps. The rubber-coated arms can be adjusted to the width of your boat and ratchet into place for a secure hold. Once they are set, the arms lock into place and can only be removed with the included keys, ensuring your gear is safe and secure. Because a single person can quickly and easily load a surf ski onto the carrier, and since load straps aren't necessary, you'll spend less time loading and unloading your boat and more time out on the water.

Quick, Strapless Loading with Ratcheting Arms

Loading a surf ski onto the carrier is easy for one person to do. With the inner arms already installed, simply set your boat on the carrier's base, making sure it's pressed against the arms. Then just insert the outer arms into the carrier and ratchet them down so they're sitting snuggly against your surf ski. Once fully locked around your surf ski, the ratcheting arms' curved design creates a lateral and downward force, ensuring your boat is secure and won't slide around. And because of this design, you don't have to use load straps to secure the boat to your roof.


To ensure your surf ski isn't damaged during transport, the ratcheting arms are covered with a rubberized sleeve. This rubber-coating flexes against the sides of your gear to protect it from scuffs and scratches, while still providing a secure hold.


For longer gear and longer trips, we recommend using bow/stern tie-down straps (sold separately). Because the carrier holds your gear in the center, the bow and stern can be subjected to damage caused by high winds. The bow/stern tie-downs provide additional support to help protect against this type of damage.


When not transporting your gear, the carrier's arms can be secured flat against your crossbars. In this position, the carrier adds less than 2" of overhead height to your roof rack crossbars. This means you won't have to remove them when pulling into your garage.

Integrated Locking System


Four locking points secure the ratcheting arms and your gear to the carrier. When you ratchet the arms down, they lock in place and can only be removed with the included keys, giving you peace of mind when you're away from your vehicle and gear. For added convenience, the keys hook onto your key ring.

Easy Installation with Universal Mounting Hardware


The rack installs quickly and easily with universal mounting clamps. Simply set the rack on top of your crossbars, attach the bottom portion of the clamp, and tighten the clamps down with the included tool.


To install the rack directly into the top channels of your crossbars, attach the T-bolts instead of the mounting clamps. Then just slide the rack into your crossbar's channels and secure it using the included socket wrench. To access the carrier's mounting hardware, simply remove the rubber strip on top of the base.

Video Transcript for Lockrack Side Loading Surf Ski Carrier Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Lockrack Surf Ski Carrier. This is a universal mount. It'll work with either the clamp-on method or the channel mount method. Part number 339LR45SLASETA. It's also available just the channel mount method. That's part number 339LR45SLASET.This Lockrack is the perfect solution for carrying your surf ski.

It allows you to carry one on the roof of your vehicle without any straps. This saves you time and hassle. How it works is the ratcheting arms secure our surf ski in place. There are four which means there's four points of contact. The biggest issue when carrying a surf ski is keeping it straight.

You don't want it slipping sideways. This can be caused by strong crosswinds or traveling at high speeds, which then leads to damage to your vehicle or your surf ski.The Lockrack itself, more or less, contains your surf ski rather than cradles it or carries it. Each arm ratchets individually to better fit around your surf ski. It also features rubber padding for grip, which is going to provide good cushion and prevent damage during transport. This is an upgrade compared to carriers that have foam padding, which tends to tear easily and doesn't last as long.

It has an auto-lock feature to ensure that it remains in place.We've gone ahead and removed the surf ski, so we can take a closer look at the Lockrack. Here, you can see that the arms are offset from one another. This is so we can get that extra snug fit around the hole. As well as the arms, the base is also padded for that protection and support.Now, we'll give you some dimensions. This will help you determine if it's going to work with your surf ski.

The base measures 17 and three quarters of an inch from pad to pad. The ratcheting arms can be adjusted from 19 and a half inches out to 32 and a half inches. The Lockrack is a clamp-on system. It'll mount to your round, square, arrow, elliptical and most factory roof racks up to two and a half inches wide and an inch and a half tall. It's also a channel mount system, which means it'll mount into the channels of your roof rack.When not in use, the Lockrack arms store flat. You simply unlock it, pull it all the way out, rotate it until you find the single hole. Make sure it's facing the same side as the lock, and then push it back in. This is ideal for parking in your garage.The Lockrack is made out of a lightweight aluminum construction. It has a weight capacity of 175 pounds. You do however want to check with your vehicle's owner's manual to see if it can support this much weight. Now that we've gone over features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it set up. Now, this video is going to be for both the universal mount Lockrack and the channel mount Lockrack.Now, the universal mount Lockrack comes with both the clamp-on style and the channel mount style. We're going to show you how to set up both. Let's do the channel mount first. We'll need to locate our T-bolt. We'll need to take the plastic spacer, put it over the top. Then, we can bring them over to our base. We're going to come up through the two holes here. From there, you can just loosely install your lock nuts. Then, we're ready to head over to our channel on our roof rack.Now in order for this to work out, you need to be sure that the channel on your roof rack system is at least three quarters of an inch wide. That way, we can slide the T-bolt through. Once it's in the channel, you can slide it to your desired location. If you've already installed the other Lockrack, you'll just want to be sure that they both match up. Once they're lined up, you can take your included tool and tighten down your lock nuts.Then, we can install our pads. We'll just make sure that one side is tucked in underneath, and then we can just tuck in the other side. With these installed, the rest of the installation is the same whether you're using the channel mount or the clamp-on style.Here, in the rear, we've got a clamp-on style already set up. You could see the difference between the two. As you can see, the channel mount is going to give you that low profile cleaner look. It's going to sit right on top of our crossbars, whereas the clamp-on style does not. The clamp-on style is more versatile, so it's going to work with those multiple roof rack systems.Now, we'll show you how to set up that clamp-on style. We'll want to grab the clamp with the hole in the top, remove that rubber pad, take the T-bolt and slide up through and replace that rubber pad. We'll want to do that for both. From there, I'm going to take one of our Allen bolts, drop it down through. Grab the bottom portion of the clamp, put it together, install the nut on the other side. This is going to make installation later way easier. Let's go ahead and do that same process for both.From there, we'll slide on our plastic spacer and slide it up underneath our base, just like we did with our channel mount. We'll make sure that both clamps are straight, install our lock nuts and tighten them down all the way. With our bolts tightened up, we can install our pads. Then, we can head over to the roof of our vehicle.Now, I've rotated the bottom portions of the clamp out of the way. We can just set it in place. Again, we'll just want to be sure and line it up with our other Lockrack. We can rotate them around. We'll take our hardware, drop it down through, put it through the bottom of the clamp, push the nut up through, take our included tool and get that started.Once everything's started, we'll want to tighten everything down evenly. We'll do a little bit on this side and then a little bit on the other side until it's nice and secure. Then, we can put on our ratcheting arms and our Lockrack is installed.Now, we'll show you how to load up the surf ski. You'll want to remove the two arms from the side that you'll be loading on, so I'll take mine off here. We'll take our included key and pull them all the way out. On the other side, I'm going to adjust the mount halfway. From there, I'll bring in my surf ski and set it in place. You want to load it to where your surf ski is upside down, and so that the rudder is facing forward. I'm going to center it up on the base of my Lockrack.With our surf ski in place, we can reinstall our ratcheting arms. Now, I'll push these in until they make contact. Then, we'll close them up on the other side and get a nice, tight fit. With it in place and everything tightened down, as you can see, it's not going anywhere. We're ready to head down the road. If you'd like to add some bow and stern straps, they can further help stabilize your surf ski and give you peace of mind. They are recommended when traveling at high speeds or long distances. If where you surf is close by, you may not need or want these. They are sold separately.That's going to complete our look at the Lockrack Surf Ski Carrier Universal Mount, part number 339LR45SLASETA.


Ask the Experts about this Lockrack Watersport Carriers

  • Difference Between Lockrack Adjustable Surf Ski Carrier # 339-LRSSKISETX and # 339LR45SLASETA
    How wide are the crossbars on your roof rack? In order for the racks you mentioned to fit they'll need to be less than 2-1/2 inches wide or have a top channel they can install in. I'm pretty sure your bars are wider than that and don't have a top channel so I am afraid there won't be a way to get them to fit. Dimensionally though the racks have the same height of 11 inches. The big difference is that the # 339-LRSSKISETX has a wider range of boats it can fit. The X version’s base can...
