Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack J Style Kayak Carrier Review

Today we will be showing you the Rhino-Rack J Style Roof Mounted Kayak Carrier, part number S510. This carrier is a great solution for transporting your water craft on your roof while still having plenty of space to put anything up there such as a basket or a bike rack. This J style carrier can accommodate a variety kayak shapes and sizes and has rubber pads to protect your gear as you are going down the road. It secures around our roof rack bars with oversized handles that allow for any easy grip and it can accommodate arrow, square, round, and most factory bars. If you're working with an arrow bar system, like we have here with our Rhino-Rack, you can get a separate mounting system that will go into the channel here and that part number is KC-FK10. The carrier has a sturdy steel tube construction and has a nice black powder coat finish to resist corrosion. This J style carrier is perfect for carrying one kayak.

The tied on straps have a strap keeper to bundle up the excess so it's not flapping as you go down the road and there's also a protective cover around the buckle on the black strap to protect your gear from any damage or scratches. Now that we've gone over some of the features of our kayak carrier, let's show you how it installs. As you can see we've got our Rhino-Rack arrow bars already mounted onto our vehicle and it's worth mentioning that this rack has a weight capacity of only ninety-nine pounds so if you have some pretty heavy kayaks, you want to make sure they are no more than that. The roof rack itself can only take one hundred and ten pounds but you want to refer to your vehicle's manual to make sure that it doesn't have a lower weight rating than that and between those three, go with whatever is lowest. So to start off, we're just going to unthread the knobs from the bottom and if you want to, you can leave one threaded on so you don't have to get them both started. And then take your bracket off and we're going to place this up under our rack and just drop that down so the bolts go on either side, bring the clamp around your bar, and then thread that knob back on there. So to get both of mine started so that can sit on the bar here.

And you want to make sure that you tighten these down evenly so that your carrier isn't favoring one side or the other. We'll show you how to load up the kayak. Now we'll set our kayak up into our carrier. Make sure that back of your kayak is resting against the back of the carrier and that the side is seated nicely into the front part of the rack. We'll have two sets of straps and two of each. These will be the straps that will go around our kayak or other water craft and these will be our tie down straps to go at the bow and stern of whatever we're carrying.

As you can see we already have one of the straps on our kayak so now we'll show you how that goes on. Take the rubber end of the cam buckle strap and that's going to be the black one and just kind of throw that over your kayak. It helps if you have a friend to make it go a little faster. Now we'll take that end, run it through the top of our J and then throw that back over our kayak. Now pull that down and you'll want to take that end and put it through the bottom of the J and then around your bar. So we'll go back behind the foot pack on our roof rack and then bring that piece back up through the bottom part of our J.

Now with that threaded through, we'll put the end of our strap through our buckle and there's just a little lever there to depress and pull that nice and tight. And then if you have any extra strap, there's a little hook and loop strap keeper here on the back of our strap that we can fold that up into. Before you head down the road, you'll want to make sure to use your tie down straps and those will go on the bow and stern of whatever water craft you're carrying. Just make sure that you secure it to a sturdy part of the vehicle such as your frame. Now we'll show you how to attach the strap on the stern of your water craft. So just take your strap and run it, in this case, we have a hitch, so we'll run it around the tie down loop and then bring it up and then we'll run it through, in this case, the handle on the stern of our boat and then we'll run that end through the buckle on the end of our strap just like the other one that went around our kayak. Pull that tight and once that's secure, again you can use the hook and loop strap keeper here to keep your excess strap in place so it's not flapping or flying as you're going down the road. And here we go. Make sure that you have that out of the way of your line of sight while you're driving so you don't have any obstructions. Now with everything tightened down and secure, that will do it for our look at the Rhino-Rack J Style Roof Mounted Kayak Carrier, part number S510.

J racks were delivered promptly and they were easy to put together with everything I needed included. The kayaks sit in them nicely and I think they will work out well. Very impressed with the prompt service and quality of the product. 265568

I recently purchased a Rhino-rack with Aero Crossbars and Kayak carrier. Customer Service was excellent. They suggested the Rhino-rack which was on sales and then suggested cheaper attachments for the kayak. My name on the order was misspelled and I never received a order confirmation but one call to Customer Svc fixed the order. I have not used the rack yet but I am impressed with the quality. 358718

We bought a second kayak so I came back to etrailer.com to get the second set of carriers. Great product, and the etrailer team is super helpful if you have any questions. These carriers make it eay to load and unload the kayak and I feel comfortable with the security of the kayak on the car driving to the lake or shore. And the included straps are very sturdy as well. Have recommended this site to my friends. 410311

I ordered these to go with a new Rhino Rack roof rack I ordered for my car. Love the rack, however, the Rhino J kayak carriers are okay. I also have Thule J racks which won't fit adequately on my Rhino Rack (I've ordered longer bolts that will hopefully fix this issue). Thule J racks are a better quality product than the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier, frankly. Etrailer.com has been very helpful. 308511

This will be used on a 2015 Toyota Camry to carry a kayak both locally and to the beach. No problem with the installation, and had all the necessary parts. Tried it today and it worked beautifully. I especially appreciate the follow-up with the links to the video. I did need a little help on how to install the straps to the car. Product works great, and the customer service was excellent.

Haven’t had a chance to put a kayak in the rack for the cold weather front right now but here’s what I’ve got: Delivery was fast as usual with etrailer. Packaging was great. From assembling the Rhino-rack I think it’s very sturdy and worth every penny. I love the included ties. Good job in having an eye for detail by rhino rack with the Velcro straps to bundle excess straps. I’m excited to put both the racks I ordered to good use.

Product is made of high quality material. Assembly is very simple. I bought this rack to go on top of my 2015 Traverse.

  • How to Easily Transport a 10' Kayak with a 2013 Chevrolet Equinox
  • I have a 2010 Chevy Equinox and I can tell you that a 10 foot kayak will not fit in the back of my vehicle so unfortunately I don't think you are going to be able to fit one in your 2013 Equinox. Maybe if you don't have a passenger and you put the front passenger seat down too, but not just with the back seats. If sounds like you are needing an easy way to load your kayak as lifting it up to a roof rack can be challenging. We do have an alternative solution for you though. This involves...

  • How to Carry Two Kayaks and Pull a Trailer with a 2012 Ford F-150 Lariat
  • The only feasible way to carry two kayaks on your 2012 Ford F-150 while towing a R-Pod travel trailer would be to place them on the roof of your truck. In order to do this you are going to need a roof rack and roof top mounted kayak carriers. For a roof rack, I recommend taking a look at the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System which is composed of part # RRVA150B-2, part # RRRLKVA, and part # DK150. This system has aero shaped crossbars for reduced wind noise and drag. It also has...

  • Recommended Crossbars for Standard 5x8 Utility Trailer to Carry 2 Kayaks
  • The Malone Crossbar Conversion Kit for Standard Utility Trailer # MPG475 may work well on your utility trailer, but it is designed to attach to the frame and not the side rails, so you'd need to install through the floor mesh on your Tractor Supply 5x8 foot utility trailer. To have a crossbar system that attaches to the raised side frame, I recommend the Malone TopTier Load Bar Kit for Utility Trailers - 250 lbs # MPG493 which is high as you mentioned but can have the supports cut...

Kayak carriers that will fit on your factory bars are shown on the linked page. These include J-style carriers like # S510 and...

If you prefer a different mounting style, then I recommend the Malone MegaWing Sit-On-Top Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - V-Style # MPG207 This carrier is rated for 150 lbs capacity. These are made for the larger fishing kayaks. All of these options will work on your 2017...

It is made of extruded aluminum that is sturdy, rustproof, and lightweight. Heavy-duty clamps secure the rack to your truck bed rails with the included hardware.

  • Kayak Carrier for a 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon and 75.8 Pound Kayak

  • What is the Difference Between Rhino Rack Nautic and Nautic 581?
  • The difference between the two kayak carriers are the type of crossbars they mount on. The Rhino Rack Nautic # RR571 is compatible with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars by clamping on. The Rhino Rack Nautic 581 # RR581 is compatible with crossbars that have a bar or T-slot channel. I've added links to video installs of each product so you can see the difference. As for a spacer, it would depend on how tall your crossbars are, and though you may be able to...

These adapters are designed to work with your Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier, # S510, mounting it to built-in c-channels on your crossbars. They fit Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty roof-rack crossbars, Rhino-Rack Sportz crossbars, Rhino-Rack Aero and Vortex crossbars, Thule Rapid Aero and AeroBlade crossbars, and Rola crossbars. The base supports for the carrier are not sold individually.

  • Are Straps Required for Carrying Kayaks with Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier
  • To carry kayaks with the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier # S510 you will need to strap down the kayaks front and back. We took several pictures of this rack with kayaks loaded on it and not all of them show the kayaks secured and ready for transport. A lot of people use the Hood Loops like part # TH529 for securing the front of the kayak or for back and front part # TH530. Simply close them under the vehicle's hood or trunk.

I recommend the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier, part # S512. This is designed to be able to work with round, aero/elliptical and most factory crossbars.

This carrier comes with everything needed to attach to your crossbars plus straps for securing a kayak to the carrier. If you are looking for a carrier that would be better suited for carrying 2 kayaks on the very short crossbars of your vehicle the part # Y04041 would be a better choice.

Because this is a universal-fit carrier system it will mount on just about all factory-installed roof crossbars and also fits aftermarket racks with round, aerodynamic and elliptical bars.

The Outlander would need to have crossbars added if it only has side rails and that represents additional cost. I recommend the Rhino-Rack J-style carrier # S512 since it can fold down flat and also has a weight capacity of 99 pounds. You will want to check the roof rack and/or the owner's manual for the Tribute though to make sure it is rated high enough for your 95 pound...

This type of carrier cannot be locked but is very lightweight, meaning that more of your vehicle's roof weight capacity is available for the kayaks themselves.
