Video Transcript for Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier with tie downs, part number Y04082-2.The Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carriers is a perfect solution for carrying your one kayak on your vehicle's roof rack. This is great for sea, river, recreational, and most fishing kayaks. The Yakima Carrier is going to include two load straps for the center of your kayak and one bow and one stern strap.The Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carriers have a carrying capacity of one kayak with a weight capacity of 80 pounds. The Yakima Kayak Carrier hand rollers make it easy to install your kayak on your vehicle's roof. It's going to make it easy to load from the rear of your vehicle. The same key system lock cores can easily be inserted into your Yakima rollers to prevent any theft or tampering.The Yakima Kayak Carrier can be used with round, square, arrow, elliptical, and most factory cross bars with a minimum cross bar spread of 24 inches.

The Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier comes with a limited lifetime warranty and is quick and easy to install. We'll show you how to do that next.We've gone ahead and installed our other three rollers. We're going to show you how to do this back passenger side one since it's all the same. We've got our clamps open here. We're just going to place them around our cross bar.

Then, we can start to tighten it down. We want to face it so that we have access to our lock core if we decide to add that lock core in there and to our knob to unlock our roller. We'll tighten this down. Then, we want to open up our knobs and rotate them so that our rollers will move. Then, we can load up our kayak.Once we have our kayak in place, we can rotate our lever.

We may need to move our roller, and that's going to lock that into place. Now, we're ready to tie down our kayak. Now, before we tie down our kayak, we're going to take our strap keeper. We're just going to place onto our strap, feeding it through. Now, we can take our strap and toss it to the other side keeping our cam on whichever side we want to access.

We'll take our strap underneath our cross bar, and we'll toss it back over to the other side. Once again, we'll take our strap underneath our cross bar. Then, we can feed it through our cam buckle. Make sure to tighten that down, and we'll fold up our strap and put it into our strap keeper. Now, we can repeat that same process for our other strap.Now, to connect our bow and stern straps. We're going to start by taking our buckle strap and feed it through our handle here at the back. We'll then feed it through itself and tighten up the loop. Next, we'll take our anchor strap and feed it through our buckle. We're going to tighten this down as much as we can to make it easier to attach our hook. We want to find a metal surface on our vehicle, no plastic. So, in this case, we're going to use our safety chain loops. We'll hook it on and tighten up our strap and secure down our excess.Now, we're ready to take this out on our test course. Here on our test course, we'll start by goinginaudible 00:03:30. This is going to show up the side to side action, which simulates turning corners or inaudible 00:03:35. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, garage, or driveway.That's going to be our complete look at the Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier with tie downs, part number Y04082-2.

Review from a similar Yakima HandRoll in Watersport Carriers

I have two vintage 1980s 17 ft. ocean kayaks that I transport on a GMC Yukon. Yakima DeckHands mounted on my vehicle forward roof rack and because of the length of my kayaks Yakima HandRollers mounted to a Yakima LongArm and LongArm extension fitted to my vehicle trailer hitch receiver. These are excellent products that allow me to safely transport both boats side by side. The HandRollers allow me to single handed load and unload. Front of the boats on the HandRollers attached to the LongArm, push from the stern of the kayak and they are easily in place on the top of my Yukon ( a pretty tall SUV). I do recommend these products. They work very well. Much easier than hefting a nearly 60 lb kayak on top to a tall vehicle by hand. 707718

  • Will the Yakima HullyRollers Fit a 2014 Subaru Outback
    You can use the Yakima HullyRollers # Y04082-2 on a 2014 Subaru Outback with factory roof rack and crossbars. I have included a link to a video review of the HandRoll for you.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier and Roof Rack for 2015 Subaru Forester with Side Rails
    If you need to transport only one single kayak of no more than 75-lbs total weight then perhaps the easiest option in a rear-loading carrier is the Yakima HandRoll # Y04082-2 along with SKS lock core kit # Y07202. In a compatible roof rack you have many options, shown on the linked page, but for both weight capacity and value I suggest the Rhino-Rack Vortex rack that features quiet aerodynamic bars. This rack has 49-inch load bars and a 175-lb weight rating. Order parts # RRVA126B-2...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2015 Ford Edge with Glass Roof
    We have roof racks confirmed to fit both the 2015 Ford Edge with a bare roof and also the version like yours that has the glass roof with flush-mount rails that run front-to-back. The Rhino-Rack setup I suggest is their Vortex Aero rack made of parts # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX024. The Vortex rack will typically be quieter than the square bar rack. We have many kayak carriers that fit both types of roof rack bars and all of them are shown on the linked page. Great carrier options...

  • Recommended Two Kayak System for 2017 Ford F450 with Sunroof Pulling 5th Wheel Trailer
    To avoid your bed when towing a 5th wheel on your 2017 Ford F-450, the best way to carry your couple of kayaks is to use a roof rack and a front hitch receiver with a load extender. You may not be able to use your sunroof with the kayaks installed. My recommendation is the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65076 which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle along with the Thule Goalpost Hitch Mounted Load Bar # TH997. Then I recommend the Thule roof rack...

  • Recommended Yakima Roof Rack for 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
    I'm glad to hear you had a good owner experience with your last Yakima roof rack and I am happy to help you with a new one for your 2019 Outback Wagon non-Touring edition. My favorite Yakima roof rack is their black Jetstream aero-style bar roof rack. This system consists of parts # Y00425, # Y00148 and # Y00241. The black crossbars lend a clean OEM-like appearance and they will be much quieter than basic round Yakima bars (or any other bar shape for that matter) since their design allows...

  • What Type of Rollers Can be Used with the Thule Goalpost TH997
    Customer Brad is using kayak rollers on his Thule Goalpost # TH997. There are several options for these. You can get a set of 4 from Yakima using # Y04082-2 or a pair using # Y04082. I have linked a video of these rollers for you.

  • Will Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier fit Thule Wingbar Evo Crossbars
    Yes, the Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier # Y04082, which is the 1/2 system, or # Y04082-2, which is the full system with 4 rollers, will fit aero bars from Thule, such as the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711420. These kayak carriers come with tie-downs and I highly recommend using the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07202 to secure the rollers to your crossbars and help protect your investment. The Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier # Y04082-2 has an 80 lb weight capacity and...

    In order to install the Yakima HullyRoller Roof Rack Kayak Carrier part # Y04035 on the roof of your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee using the the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack part # TH7602B-TH7602B, you will need to use the Universal MightyMounts for Yakima Roof Mounted Accessories part # Y03590. The MightyMounts are designed to allow for the use of aero crossbars while using the HullyRoller. In order to lock the HullyRoller to your crossbars, you will need both the Yakima Accessory Lock...

  • Rear-Load and Side-Load Assisted Kayak Carrier for Use on 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon Factory Bars
    We have a number of load-assisted kayak carriers, some side-loading such as the Thule Hullavator # TH898 and others rear-loading. For use on the factory crossbars of your 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon I recommend a rear-loading carrier. For what its worth, I am a kayaker and I find a rear-loader easier. I think the Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # Y04082-2 offers an excellent combination of convenience and value for your dollar in a rear-loading roller-style carrier. This...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 1-Person Use on 2008 Saturn Vue
    We can help you with a method to easily transport your 10-foot 55-lb kayak on your roof of your 2008 Saturn Vue. If you want the best 1-person loading option then I suggest the Curt Roof Rack # C18118 and the roller-assisted Yakima HandRoll # Y04082-2. Tie-down straps are included.

  • Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier Mounting Requirements
    To install Thule's load-assist Hullavator kayak carrier # TH898 on a vehicle's roof rack the ends of the bars must extend out past the roof rack feet by at least 4-inches. You can see this requirement illustrated in the linked diagram. The comparable Yakima ShowDown carrier # Y04081 also has a similar bar space requirement. If your roof rack is a Subaru factory type whose bars do not extend past the rack feet/rails then you can still use the Hullavator but you'll need to add a different...

  • Recommended Kayak Lift for 2007 Nissan Xterra Factory OEM Roof Rack
    I have a solution for you, but the Yakima ShowDown Kayak Lift, part # Y04081, is only compatible with roof racks that extend at least 3.5 inches past the tower. The factory roof rack for the 2007 Nissan Xterra is not a compatible fit. If you're looking for load-assist, the next best fit for your goals is to use a roller-style mount, like the Yakima HandRoll, part # Y04082-2. This rack will help you load by providing a set of rollers on the rear of the vehicle to help guide and support...

  • Can Rola Roof Rack and etrailer Kayak Carrier be Used When Flat Towing 2017 Volkswagen Jetta
    Yes, you can definitely use the Rola Rail Extreme DFE Series Roof Rack # R5015 and etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier # e98878 on your 2017 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan being flat towed behind your motorhome. This is a great way to get your kayak to your destination without trying to find a way to hoist it up on the roof of your motorhome. If you'd like to make loading the kayak easier you can use a roller system like the Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # Y04082-2 so that you can...

  • Can Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier Be Used with Factory Roof Rack on 2018 Chevy Equinox
    I may have an option for you, however the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 that you referenced will not work with the factory crossbars on your 2018 Chevy Equinox. The system does need to utilize the channels on an aero-style crossbar for proper installation so it won't be able to fit your factory bars that don't feature a top track. Also, based on my research it doesn't look like the factory bars on your Equinox extend out past the roof sides enough for the Hullavator to be compatible. For...

    For your 2017 Ford F-450 Jason recommended the Thule roof rack that consists of the Thule Wingbar Evo # TH711520, the Foot Pack # TH710501, Fit Kit # TH145177, and locks # TH450400. I attached an install video of this rack on a very similar Ford truck as yours that will show you how it all goes together. That will be the easiest way to visualize everything. I also attached a review video for the Thule Goalpost # TH997 and the Yakima HandRoll part # Y04082-2.

  • Can Yakima BigStack be Used for 40 lbs, 10-1/2 Long Kayak on 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The Yakima BigStack # Y04041 can definitely handle a 40 lb, 10-1/2' kayak on your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon, and it can be loaded by one person provided that person can lift and maneuver the 40 lbs. If the 40 lb kayak is a little much for you to handle on your own you may want to look into a load assist carrier like the HandRoll # Y04082-2, ShowDown # Y04081, or a supplemental load assist like the Inno # INA453 or Rhino-Rack # RR-RUSL. We also carry steps like the Camco # CAM43675...

  • How to Determine if Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier Will Fit MotorFansClub Roof Rack Rail Cross Bars
    From what I could find it looks like your MotorFansClub Roof Rack Rail Cross Bars are a pretty standard size so the Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # Y04082 should fit just fine. These were designed about the Yakima JetStream crossbars which measure 3-1/8" wide x 1" tall so if your crossbars are similar then you should be fine. If not, just let me know what they measure and I can do some digging to see if they will fit. Please be mindful that the kit you referenced is only...
