Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Paddle solo with a heavy kayak or canoe (up to 175 lbs) but sometimes go paddleboarding with friends instead
  • Park in a garage and need a low-profile rack that fits under the door
  • Hate wasting time strapping your boat to a carrier (bow and stern straps are still recommended)

No, if you:

  • Carry other gear on your roof, like bikes or a cargo basket, while transporting your kayak
  • Only get on the water occasionally and can’t justify dropping a bunch of money on a rack
  • Take your rack off/on frequently
Adjustable XL watersport carrier holds oversized gear with rubber-coated, ratcheting arms and an adjustable base - no need for load straps. Integrated locks secure your watercraft to the carrier.

- LR54FR

I picked excellent because it will eliminate climbing on a ladder to put on straps. When I first looked at it mounted on my car I never thought it would be secure. I recruited my neighbor to see if I could side load using a small stepstool. (I am 5'3"). With my old Thule rack I could cover the back of my car with a rug and slide my kayaks on up to the roof. Fortunately, I have a very light Eddyline kayak that I use most of the time, so for this kayak it is manageable. When I secured the kayak with the arms, I was surprised how tight it was with absolutely no movement. Haven't driven with it yet but I am sure that it will work well. The only problem I had was it took all afternoon to put it together. I think you need to improve the photos and have more detailed instructions. A current installation video with this newer designed kayak rack. The videos I found had several different arms.

Everything looks in good shape, accept the lettering is worn off.

  • Will the Lockrack Adjustable XL Watersport Carrier Work On Jackson Big Tuna Fishing Kayak
    I have the perfect Lockrack option for the taller sit on top fishing kayaks like the Jackson Big Tuna, the Lockrack Adjustable XL Watersport Carrier part # LR54FR which was designed by Lockrack for this exact reason. This version unlike the standard has much taller uprights to better accommodate taller sit on top fishing kayaks.

  • Kayak Carrier Solution that Holds Boat Higher than LockRack For Hatch Clearance
    There isn't a safe way to raise the height of a LockRack kayak carrier like # LR54FR. It might be best to go with a taller carrier or a J-style which would hold the kayaks at angle and would raise up the rear end of the kayak and give you the clearance like with the part # TH848.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation For 2017 Ford Escape With Raised Side Rails to Carry SUP
    We can get your 2017 Ford Escape with raised side rails set up with a roof rack to carry your stand-up paddleboard, and the rack I really like is from Rhino-Rack, and consists of the following parts: - Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Silver # RRVA126S-2 or Black # RRVA126B-2 - Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Raised Factory Side Rails # RRSX100 The reason I recommend this Rhino-Rack for your '17 Escape over other options is because it is easily the best...

  • Will the Lockrack Adjustable XL Watersport Carrier Fit on an Adarac Ladder Rack
    I have good news for you! Adarac racks are generally square bars. The Lockrack Adjustable XL Watersport Carrier, part # LR54FR, that you referenced is compatible with square bars. This carrier will work for your ladder rack. I've linked to a video review of this carrier below.

  • Will the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier Work With Scott Prospector Fishing Kayak
    I reached out to Lockrack on your behalf about the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier part # 339-LRUNISETX and they stated they just actually released a new version of this carrier for fishing kayaks with the deeper hulls so instead I recommend using the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier with XL Arms part # LR54FR which they said would work with a Scott Prospector.

  • Roof Rack Fit on 2021 Toyota 4Runner For SUPs
    We do have a fit for a Thule roof rack for your 2021 Toyota 4Runner, so long as it has raised side rails on the roof. If so, you would actually only need two parts in order to install the rack - the crossbars and feet. The parts that fit your '21 4Runner are the following: - Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Silver # TH711400 or Black # TH711420 - Rapid Crossroad Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH450R While the Thule rack is a really nice option, there is another one I recommend going with,...

  • Is Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier Compatible With Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack
    Yes, the Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier # LR54FR is compatible with the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG215. You will just need to use the Lockrack's included T-bolt hardware to mount the Lockrack to the Malone crossbars instead of the clamping system, because the Lockrack's clamps aren't quite large enough to fit around the Malone aero crossbars. I have added links below to video reviews for you to check out as well of the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG215 and Lockrack Adjustable...

  • Load Assist Options for Lockrack Kayak Carrier
    While we have some load assist options, the Yakima ShowBoat # Y04068 has a maximum spread of 32 inches, so it would not quite be wide enough to use with the 32 inch spread you have on your Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier # LR54FR. Additionally, the T-bolt that tightens the ShowBoat clamps would likely interfere with the arms of the Lockrack. Instead, there are a couple options I recommend checking out. - Rear Loading: Thule Water Slide Non-Skid Loading Mat # TH854 - Side...

  • Will The Rhino Rack ROC25 Fir My 2020 Toyota Tundra Crew Max TRD To Carry SUPs?
    The Rhino Rack ROC25 # RR64YR will fit your 2020 Toyota Tundra Crew Max TRD Pro and does come with everything you need to install! I HIGHLY recommend getting the Lockrack XL # LR54FR because it will only take up some of the space on your roof, depending on the width of your SUP. This one allows up to 3 SUPS so if you find some friends to go with, you are prepared and can carry their boards too no problem. If it were me, I would utilize the rest of the bar space with the Yakima SkinnyWarrior...

  • Crossbar Solution for 2018 GMC Canyon with Retrax Pro Tonneau Cover
    Since your GMC Canyon has the Retrax PRO tonneau cover with the track system you'd want the Rhino Rack Vortex Crossbar System for Retrax XR Series Tonneau Covers # RRVA165B-RRRLT600 which has 65 inch crossbars instead of the part number you referenced which as longer bars and was made with a full size truck in mind. Then you could mount a roof bike rack on these bars like the RockyMounts BrassKnuckles part # RKY1201 and for the kayak and SUP you could use a LockRack # LR54FR.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier For Hauling A 96lb Kayak On A 2014 Subaru Crosstrek
    I have a solution for you to carry your 96lb 18' kayak on your Subaru Crosstrek, but your options will be slightly limited since not all kayak carriers can hold this weight. Your most affordable option is going to be the Rhino-Rack Nautic 580 Side Loading Kayak Carrier # RR580 which will simply clamp around your Thule Aeroblade crossbars and provide a nice mounting spot for your kayak. The weight capacity of this carrier is whatever your crossbar weight capacity is, which makes it a great...

    The best option is to mount a roof rack on your 2021 F-150 such as the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars, # TH711500 for silver with the needed Clamp Feet # TH710501 and Fit Kit for Thule Evo Clamp Roof Rack Feet # TH145177. Please see the attached video. You can strap a canoe/kayak directly to the rack, use the Lockrack Adjustable XL Watersport Carrier - Canoe, Kayak, # LR54FR.

  • Roof Rack For 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee That Is Easy To Install And Is Compatible With Tandem Kayak
    The Rhino-Rack RVP Roof Rack # RRRVP27, which is confirmed to fit your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, has a weight capacity of 149lbs. You will want to check your owner's manual to verify your roof's weight capacity, but my research tells me that your roof has a 150lb weight limit so you should have no issue mounting a kayak that weighs 80lbs. This roof rack is very easy to install or remove; once the legs are installed, there is just one bolt on each side of the crossbar to secure it to the...

  • Roof Rack And Canoe Carrier Options For 2016 Volvo XC60 With Flush Roof Rails
    For your 2016 Volvo XC60 with flush rails, the Rhino-Rack Aero crossbars would be an excellent system. You can go with silver crossbars # RRVA126S-2 or black crossbars # RRVA126B-2 and then you also need Feet # RRSX025. These bars feature the T-slot channel on top which allows for channel-mounted accessories to be easily installed. For a canoe carrier, I think the Lockrack Adjustable XL Watersport Carrier # LR54FR would work well. The carrier arms can be adjusted from 28" to 47-1/2"...

  • How To Carry 10 Foot Long Paddle Boards On A Malone Watersports Trailer
    I have a possible solution for you to haul 10' paddle boards on a trailer, however, we do not have trailers with folding sides. I recommend looking into the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G. This has 78" long crossbars that will have plenty of room to accommodate several paddle boards. For a paddle board carrier I recommend the Lockrack Adjustable XL Watersport Carrier - Canoe, Kayak, or 3 SUPs # LR54FR. This has the ability to hold up to 3 paddle boards. For a more economical option...
