Kayak enthusiasts will appreciate the simplicity of the Thule Hull-A-Port - an inexpensive, easy-to-install solution for transporting your watercraft on your roof-rack crossbars.


Thule Hull-A-Port wide profile

With a wide profile capable of holding a kayak up to 36" wide, these J-style cradles make it easy for one person to load and unload a kayak. And since the cradles hold your kayak on its side, it takes up less room on your crossbars than saddle-style carriers, leaving plenty of space for you to carry more gear.


Thule Hull-A-Port universal mounting hardware

The Hull-A-Port fits most crossbar styles with the included universal mounting hardware. These brackets and hand knobs tighten around your crossbars in seconds for a simple, hassle-free installation.


Thule Hull-A-Port adjustable padding

The J-style cradles include adjustable pads that slide up and down the upright arms. This allows you to customize the position of their four touch points to better support your kayak. These pads strengthen the cradles and protect your kayak's hull from scratches and abrasions.


Thule Hull-A-Port tie-down straps and bow/stern tie-downs

Two tie-down straps with padded buckles are provided for you to strap your kayak to your crossbars. And a set of bow/stern tie-downs also is included to anchor the front and back of your kayak to your vehicle. Typically the bow/stern tie-downs will attach to the bumpers or hitch on your vehicle. Adapters are available to make it easier to attach the bow/stern tie-downs.


The Hull-A-Port is constructed of steel tubing with a rust-resistant AllSurface coating that ensures durability.

My wife & I have always used Thule products & have always been satisfied. She loves these carriers, easy for her to load & unload the kayak. Gonna purchase another real soon. 386214

I purchased two sets of Thule Hull-A- Port Carrier with Tie-Downs (J-Style, fixed side - loading) last year. They have been installed on our Subaru Outback all of this summer. I like that they are easy to install, easy to use, well built, and that Outback fits under a standard garage door with them installed. Its a snap to pop the kayaks on and go! If you paddle longer boats (my kayaks are 14, 14.5 and 15 feet long) I recommend getting the Thule Bow/Stern Tie Downs (TH530) for convenient temporary bow & stern tie down points, without crawling under the vehicle to attach to the frame. 414037

The Thule Hull-A-Port is a great quality j-style kayak carrier. I feel like my kayak sits very secure in the arms of this carrier. The carrier mounted easily around the Thule AreoBlade Crossbars on my 2015 Jeep Patriot. The padding on the back of the carrier slides up and down for you to position the padding at the best spot for your kayak. I was also happy to find that I could fully open my hatch with my 9-1/2 foot kayak in the carrier. I did find that the bow and stern straps wanted to make contact with my vehicle. I decided to put the Thule Quick Loops under the hood closer to my windshield instead of at the front of my vehicle. I also put a protective piece of cloth (I used a canvas bag) at the Quick Loop at the back of my vehicle to protect my hatch from the stern tie-down. 217489

These racks fit my 2012 Subaru Outback factory crossbars and securely carried two 12-foot kayaks on a long interstate road trip. I had struggled in the past with a different brand of J-style kayak carrier on these racks that didn't quite get as tight as you'd like and thus moved a little bit on the racks in strong crosswinds. Install is straightforward and involves good old fashioned knuckle-busting to turn screw-grips by hand to tighten them down enough, but they got the job done well for me. 401960

I purchased the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier a year ago and have used it to transport my kayak. It attaches easily to a the rail frame of most vehicles. I've found the product to be well designed to hold the kayak firmly and safely at highway speeds. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a cargo frame rail on their vehicle and needs to transport a kayak. 545412

Great kayak carriers! We use 2 sets on our 2012 Subaru Outback for 2, 10 ft kayaks. Super lightweight, easy to install. I like that it came with straps and step by step instructions. The kayaks definitely feel secure when they are on. We used these several times this last year and have never had an issues. If I had to pick out a couple of things to say on the downside, it's be that sometimes it does take some tweaking to get it on straight and you have to have a good eye to ensure they are aligned. But, it isn't hard at all, just took some practice, like anything else. The ropes that go from the front of the kayak to the front of the car are too short for my "long-nosed" Outback. Overall, awesome!! 350801

This product was perfect for what I needed. I used this carrier along with the Thule Glide and Set to carry two kayaks and enjoyed using this system way more. What I liked most was how easy it was to load and unload the kayak from the side of my jeep. It was also a bit easier to install too because there was only two pieces, where as the Glide and Set took a couple times to get it adjusted to fit the hull of the kayak correctly. I also liked the way the straps tied around the kayak. The only thing I wish this system would have came with is the ratcheting pulleys like with the Thule Glide and Set. 180342

I have Emotion Comets, they are approximately 8 feet 2 inches long, and about 2 feet 7 inches wide. They fit very well in the carriers, and have traveled many, many miles without any problems and without coming loose. Since these Yaks are not all that long I have not used a bow and stern tie down,,, again I have not experienced any looseness or movement of the two Yaks foregoing the extra bow and stern tie downs.

This fits 2018 Outback with no issues at all. Comes with all straps and extra for front and back tie down. First time putting them on took about 30min. Every time after about 10-15min. Have a 10 and 11ft kayak and they work perfectly. Etrailer was quick on responses, better priced, and shipped quickly. Will use them again. 516265

While the quality & construction of the Thule Hull-a-port 834 kayak racks are excellent, I did have some issues with the method recommended for attaching them to my Thule Wingbar Evo bars. Although I was told the components were compatible, I was not told that an adapter kit was required which involved attaching each section with 36 small parts (bolts, nuts, washers, etc). Nothing rapid about this. The good news was, etrailer's customer service was excellent, and they arranged for me to return the kayak rack & purchase the Hull-a-port XT 848 instead. 735069

I think the Thule Hulaport kayak racks are the best, most secure way to transport your kayaks. I had these on my Xterra and hauled two kayaks up to Cape Bretton park in Nova Scotia, Canada from Connecticut, USA no problem. We were even able to store gear in the kayaks for the trip. I’m so excited to have them for my Crosstrek. Highly recommend these! 520019

I received these items along with another order in a large box which protected the items nicely. I am impressed how easy these go onto my Aero blades by Thule. They make caring my Kayaks much safer than the after market brand I had before. The straps that come with them are very sturdy and provide extra hold for my kayaks. I traveled on a highway at speeds reaching 70 and my kayaks didn't budge! Felt very solid. 505079

I am thrilled with the Hull-a-port system. Unfortunately, my husband hurt his back so we weren't able to use them to kayak on Lake Chatuge during the eclipse but we have set a kayak date for labor day to try them out. They were easy to install and will do the trick for hauling our ‘yaks! The info and video you provided were super helpful. Thanks so much! 425169

Neither of the products worked as the salesperson said they would. The 2 sets of boat racks that I bought did not hold stand up paddle boards, and the bike racks did not work with my Thule roof rack. Over a thousand dollars worth of stuff gathering dust in my garage. 402587

Installed these on top of the Yakima BedRock rails. Works just fine. The instructions that come with the kayak carriers are terrible. I don't know why they bother. I basically had to figure out the installation on my own. Yes, the installation is not complicated by any means but the instructions are so bad that they actually sent me down the wrong path trying to interpret them. Ironically, I would have given these a higher rating if Thule had supplied no instructions. 335865

    Your Freelfree Overdrive Lure II Tandem kayak will indeed fit on your existing roof rack. According to what I've managed to look up, the kayak weighs up to 115 lbs, which is well within the capabilities of the Yakima Jetstream roof rack you mentioned. I have the perfect carrier for you. The Yakima BigCatch # Y04091 would work great for you.

  • 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.

I like this rack because it features the quieter aerodynamic type of crossbars that will make less wind noise at highway speed.
