Video Transcript for Review of Lockrack Watersport Carriers - Surfboard Rack Channel Mount - LR59FR

Hi everybody, Andy here with etrailer.com and today we're gonna take a look at this Lockrack Surfboard Rack. This watersport carrier is going to let you transport one surfboard on your roof rack without straps and this does feature expandable arms that can be adjusted to fit varying widths. So I have this one set to the smallest configuration and lining up my tape measure here, the smallest configuration measures right at about 15 inches wide, and then on our larger configuration we have a measurement of about 28 inches wide. So you have a range from 15 inches to 28 inches wide. The arms themselves are about 11 and a half inches tall and just the base we're sitting right at about 13 and three quarters inches wide on just the base itself. Now these rubber coated ratcheting arms are going to hold your gear securely at four touch points, eliminating the need for load straps and also protecting your gear from scuffs and scratches during transport.

Now this does feature an integrated locking system to secure your gear to the carrier. As you can see here, this does include four keys that will fit into the locking mechanism and with a simple twist you're gonna be able to move that arm back and forth freely. And then when you remove the key, you can hear that ratcheting mechanism when you're actually locking those arms into place. So again, you just slip in the key, give it a twist and you can actually remove the arm so you can easily load your surfboard on your rack from the side of your vehicle and then you're just simply going to slide the arm into the base and ratchet them tight against the surfboard and just keep pushing in the arms until you get that nice tight secure fit that you are going to need. Now this can actually, the arms themselves can actually be set to a flat position when they are not in use to give you more clearance on your roof.

So on this side of the base locking mechanism is on the rear here. And I wanted to show you, on this arm here we have this hole that's going to allow you to turn this into a flat position and then you just slide that in all the way and then as you can hear it is now that hole is now engaged with this locking mechanism on this side, and that's going to allow you to lay these arms flat securely. So because of space limitations on my table I'm unable to do that with all of the arms here but on your screen, I do have a photo there showing you what this is going to look like if you choose to lay this flat. When you lay this flat on your roof, it's actually going to reduce the height to right under 2 inches tall. So that is a nice feature that this rack has.

So I'm gonna go ahead and unlock this and slide this arm out and go ahead and replace it into the upright position. And then again, you can hear that, that nice secure ratcheting mechanism in operation. Now the rubberized strip here on the top of this base is going to give you cushioning and slip resistance for your surfboard. And this feature is really a lightweight aluminum construction that is corrosion resistant. This weighs about 10 pounds so it's not really heavy at all.

It's not gonna add a whole lot of weight to the top of your roof. And what I have here will easily install in most crossbars with top accessory channels. But we do also carry this with a universal crossbar adapter and that adapter or those adapters rather are going to allow you to use this rack on your round, square, arrow, elliptical and most factory crossbar. So on your screen, I do have the item number for the channel mount version only that I have here on my table and also for the universal crossbar adapter version. So whichever version is gonna work best for your application, you can just take that item number and put it in the search field of our website and that will take you to the version that you are looking for. Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me.

The lock rack is an awesome product and a must have for any surfer. Very courteous and professional staff, they updated me promptly about the status of my order. Will definitely be using them again.

The keys are an issue (wish they were metal), but everything else is great! I go sunrise kayaking only and hate putting straps on with cold hands at 3:30 in the morning. I have a Nissan Pathfinder and was able to put this on with another set of Malone J-hooks so that I can have a second kayak when I go with someone. Once the fear subsides of it possibly falling off, you realize how quick and easy this thing is to use. It takes me 1 minute instead of 9-18 minutes to get my kayak up and secure. I have tested it at 75mph without any jiggling or issues. I sat on this in my shopping cart forever and finally pulled the trigger. If you kayak at least 10 times a year or are going at high speeds for extended periods of time in warm weather, totally worth it. If not, well, there are cheaper options out there.



by:

I installed the racks on my vehicle and the Rubber for Lockrack 9-7/8" Base blew off of the racks before I ever got to put a board on them now they want $80 to replace all four of them… I just spent over $400 for the rack and I’ve already got about $80 worth of replacement parts. I guess I should’ve glued them on also it may say they lock but anybody else who buys one will have the same key plus the installation bolts are not tamper proof either.



by:

Rec'd earlier this week, so today i will install. The item was obviously a return. The logos are nearly scratched off in places, all the items were loosely thrown in the box, and the 10mm wrench and hex key were missing. i think everything else is there. The keys should be a bright color instead of black, some spray paint will fix that. Anyhoo, i am a little disappointed.



by:

Great company and customer service. The product was shipped quickly and arrived in a few days. The Lockrack is awesome. I use it for surfboards. It’s so easy to use. I have been using the product for several years and am very pleased with how simple and durable it is.



by:

I mounted it on my Yakima racks. Very easy to do (directions could really be improved by having someone describe the steps more clearly). I have not used this. Could be a month or so. However, initially, it looks good. Too bad the angled arms that hold the kayak are not adjustable depending on the angle needed.



by:

Wow I am loving my new set up Thank you Nicole and etrailer for all your help in getting the right look and fit



by:

Easy installation. Secure. No straps required. Drove 8 hours up to 80 mph, didn’t move.



by:

This is the best and quick way to transport your sup, surf ski, OC etc. load and lock in 10 second. Secured and effective set up. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase.



by:

Awesome invention. Greatly reduced the amount of time and frustration usually associated with loading up our 2 SUPs and small sport kayak. It does take some time to install but that is expected. Don't assume the initial installation is a 10-minute job. However, once the system is in place, loading and locking the SUPs and kayak was simple and quick. We did have to experiment a bit with the best combination to make everything fit. I was hoping we could fit three SUPs on one rack, but no chance. My only complaint is that the keys provided are plastic, and strip very easily when unlocking the bars to remove or make adjustments. Without a key, your stuff is stuck. We hope that LockRack with come up with a more sturdy, metal replacement key for this system.



by:

I had doubts when I first opened the box. No way would this thing hold my boat. My yak is a loaded 13' beast suitable for ocean and large lake fishing. Well over 100 lbs. I was tempted to return the rack but decided to install it, and let me tell you this Lockrack thing is as solid as a rock. I can cruise at 65 mph and my big old fishing yak doesn't wiggle, not one little bit. It's EXACTLY what I was looking for. Thank you!!!



by:

Great Quality; love ease of use, especially as a woman; snug fit. love how they look on my SUV. LOVE!



by:

Unfortunately I did not have the best of luck with this product . I spoke with the company multiple times to ensure this would work with my rack. It did not. This system is made to work ONLY on a roof rack . I have a truck with a rack and a slot in the middle . We had to make different bolts and holders to install this. For using 2 Paddleboards we also had to modify the back of the racks holders to actually touch the boards to hold them in place . After the modifications and many many adjustments we have it working and it does hold great.



by:

Great substitution for the original lock rack. The only major difference is the arms. They are straight, and not bent like the OG lock racks are. They work great! I ordered the adjustable base (21" minimum) to match the other rack. These are great!



by:

These racks are perfect. Easiest and most secure way to carry my sup.



by:

Fast shipping and great product. The lockrack XL watersport carrier is perfect for my hobie pro angler 12. It's strong enough to handle the weight of the pro angler 12. I still use a tie down to strap it to my Rhino-Rack. Overall great product.



by:

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.



by:

I'm very happy with this purchase, They installed very easily and the adjustments were easy to do and secured my kayak with ease.



by:

Did not include all the parts in the box



by:

They work very well, Good product!



by:

Very sturdy and easy to use as a solo paddler loading it on my own. I just leave one side facing up and once kayaks on the roof, slide the other 2 arms to lock it in place, then put a strap around it for extra security if im traveling far



by:

I chose this product because I feel as though it will secure my kayak with minimal damage. I used cam straps in the past and they create so much pressure on the top and bottom side of the kayak. The Lockrack allows you to secure your kayak without applying a lot of pressure, plus it provides security from theft.



by:

Original package was damaged during shipment, but Customer Service resolved the issue with no friction. Great experience. Lockrack is the easiest to use rack I’ve used. 30 seconds or less to load and unload kayak and paddle boards.

I would give it 4.5 stars if I could. Only cons are a slightly difficult installation and the quality of the plastic keys used to unlock the arms. Highly recommend the product.

I use the Lockrack system to transport an inflatable stand up paddleboard. I know, seem counterintuitive, but while we transport our two boards in their deflated state for long distances (beach trips), they get more use locally if you can leave it inflated and toss it on the car and go. The Lockrack system is genius, and avoids all the fuss with ratcheting straps down, and hoping they are secure. Since these racks are not widely used from what I gather, it is somewhat difficult to determine the specs, and there are not a large number of reviews with specific examples of what can be carried. So for what it's worth, it CANNOT carry two inflatable paddleboards- specifically the Tower Adventurer 2 models. It might be able to fit a second board if it was the racing model (skinnier in width), and the composite SUPs are likely not as tall, so it really just depends on what you have. I already had a classic Lockrack double SUP rack (that only fit one of my inflatable boards), and was hoping the XL expandable rack would allow for both boards, but at max expansion it is actually the same width as the classic, non-expandable Lockrack. I think the XL adds a few inches extra height, but nothing in terms of width. So while I'm returning the XL model, it is not for lack of appreciation of what it can do. One day we'll upgrade to boards that can both fit, but for now, even cutting the time in half and inflating one board instead of two is reward enough. I don't own a kayak or canoe, but after watching friends struggle with transport, I would highly recommend the Lockrack system for that as well.

  • What Lockrack Carrier Can Carry 2 Surfboards?
    Both the Lockrack Surfboard # LR59FR and SUP Rack # LR47FR are only capable of carrying a single surfboard. We do have the Rack # LR67VR from Lockrack which can carry 2 small surfboards. If you have large boards you will want to consider looking at the Inno Locker Watersport Roof Rack # INA446.

  • Does Lockrack Surfboard Rack Come with Clamp-On Mounting Hardware
    We do! The 13-3/4" Wide Lockrack Surfboard Rack is available both with channel mounts or with clamping style mounts like you mentioned needing: - Clamp Style Mounts # LR97VR - Channel Mounts # LR59FR I really like this style of carrier as well since it makes loading and unloading your gear much faster than managing a strap system. Happy surfing!

  • Will Lockrack Carrier LR59FR Work on Rhino-Rack StealthBar Roof Rack JA8938
    Hello again, John! Happy you liked the StealthBar # JA8938 and the answer to your question is, you can absolutely use the channel mounted Lockrack Surfboard Rack # LR59FR. The base of the Lockrack # LR59FR is a mere 13-3/4 inches long, while the StealthBar # JA8938 crossbars have a top channel and measure more than 35 inches long, so there's plenty of room for the carrier.

  • Replacement Keys For Lockrack Surfboard Rack LR59FR
    Hello John, we can definitely get you some replacement keys for your Lockrack Surfboard Rack # LR59FR. Unfortunately the plastic cover piece is not something that is available separately. As far as the keys this rack can come with several possible keys. You still have two of the keys right? The key itself will have a number stamped on it, so if you can double check that number, we can make sure you get the correct keys. The following key codes are available: Key number SH.21.12 # LR94VR Key...

  • Roof Rack and Board Carrier Recommendation for 2016 Toyota Prius V with Glass Roof
    For your 2016 Toyota Prius V you will need to install a roof rack to carry the boards you mentioned. Unfortunately only Yakima makes roof racks for your vehicle and they aren't exactly super cheap. So for that you would want the Yakima CoreBar part numbers # Y00425, # Y28TR, # Y06117, # Y06174. Which with that you'd be able to use the LockRack kpart # LR59FR that you referenced. This will attach to the crossbar by the top channel.
