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

Yes, if you:

  • Paddle solo with a kayak or canoe or stand-up paddleboard
  • Have a lighter kayak that you can easily lift up on the roof by yourself
  • Get out on the water often and need a rack that will last for years

No, if you:

  • Only get on the water occasionally and can’t justify dropping a bunch of money on a rack
  • Leave the rack on your roof while you’re out paddling and worry about it getting snatched
The DockGrip allows you to carry 1 kayak or SUP on your roof rack crossbars. Adjustable, padded saddles provide maximum stability and protection during transport. Load straps, bow/stern tie-downs, and universal mounting hardware included. Great Prices for the best watersport carriers from Thule. Thule DockGrip Kayak and Paddle Board Roof Rack w/ Tie-Downs - Saddle Style - Clamp On part number TH895 can be ordered online at etrailer.com or call 1-833-496-1390 for expert service.

The problem: How to transport kayaks with smaller vehicle as weight of cross & kayak racks plus kayaks was above vehicle roof weight limits. So I shopped for a "kayak" trailer.
The people at etrailer made the ordering process easy and successful to complete this project.
Great trailer, impressed with the size & strength of frame, and assembly went together as instructed.
Installed bunk boards and mounted Thule DockGrip for Kayaks.
This for me is an easier and safer way to transport kayaks.
Thank you etrailer...

Purchase Experience: Excellent, Melissa gave me a few options and discussed differences between them. Was friendly, courteous and professional. Found my customer information based on just my email address and took my new order easily. Shipped out quickly and arrived in a few days.

Thule DockGrip carrier: Works fine with my Toyota 2016 RAV4 OEM crossbars. Did have to use the universal mount flipped with the arch UP to make it work. Included documentation was clear and easy to understand, came with mounts and straps to hold my kayak. I do need a front tow hook for my vehicle, didn't know this until after I got the mount, had to order that extra and wait a few more days to use it. Grip is adjustable for size and shape of kayak, which is nice. Mostly plastic construction, lightweight, hopefully durable. A little pricey for what you're getting, but hopefully the engineering is better than the cheaper alternatives.

Overall I'm happy with my purchase and continued experience with etrailer.com, I've recommended it to others who have asked and will continue to do so.

The Thule kayak rack was shipped quickly and arrived on schedule. The rack was as advertised and I'll continue to order from etrailer given the numerous positive interactions I've had with them.

The ordering process was easy. The delivery time and notifications of progress to delivery was excellent.
The product was exactly what I wanted.


Comments
I am very happy with my Thule DockGrip kayak carrier. Since I can load the kayak by myself when loading from the back of my SUV. I just lift one end of the kayak up onto the back pads then go to the other end and push the kayak into place. This is very important since Im 72 yo and sometimes go kayaking alone while the old folks rest.

Bought them for my Thule rack, easy to install even with out directions (none were included) I liked that there is two options with these cradle style carrier.




by:

Easy install for the dockgrip kayak. Definitely nice that they are plyable and will conform somewhat to kayak bottom. Customer service very helpful.
