  • Have a wide kayak that needs cradles to help guide and hold it in place

  • Paddle with a very heavy fishing kayak - this rack maxes out at 80 lbs

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (26 Customer Reviews)

This Yakima carrier let you transport a kayak on your roof rack crossbars. Felt-lined saddles and padded rollers allow easy loading from the rear of vehicle and provide maximum stability and protection. Universal mount. Tie-downs included.


Good carrier set! It's easy to load and holds the boat securely, even our big 14 foot tandem ocean kayak that weighs 75 pounds. The cinch straps are easy to handle and the clips for the loose end of the strap holds it nicely. For anyone trying to decide whether to get the rollers, I would say they do make a modest difference in the ease of unloading. Two sets of saddles would also do the job.

My only complaints are:
1) the bow and stern tie straps don't come with clips to hold the loose end of the strap. I use a binder clip, but people poke fun at me for it.
2) It seems like for this price locks should be included....

Keep in mind this rack takes up most of the space on an SUV roof, so if you need to carry two boats at once, consider J-racks instead.


I bought these for hauling my wife's kayaks on Yakima's Overhaul rack system. Super easy to use and remove when we're not hauling the kayaks around. Highly recommend.


These look amazing and look forward to loading my kayak easily on them. Super easy to install and have a round fit for the Yakima round crossbar. LOVE their products!


This roller and pad setup allowed me to get a 68 lb kayak on and off my car by myself. Could not do that with the Jlow racksI


Fast shipping and easy installation


Appearance is as described on the website, fits the 2007 Gmc envoy factory cross bars. Planning to load Hoodoo 120p kayak this weekend to test for fit and function.


Just got these in the mail. They fit the stock rack on my 02 Subaru outback great and feel extremely durable. I have a very wide and heavy Jackson kayak Big Rig and I feel these will hold it great. Prior to these I trailered it or struggled to get it on the roof. Just roll it up there and secure it. This was the best product for me as all the other racks are so dang light and flimsy. Furthermore this was the best price I could find and I'm lazy and don't want to order the products separate. One and done and you save $ Great buy!


High quality as expected from Yakima.


Easy to adjust


This worked GREAT on my 2015 Outback with factory installed roof racks. Right out of the box I installed the SKS lock cores (purchased separately) clamped them on, locked them down, added my kayak and I was off for a day on the river. Just a matter of minutes to install everything. Highly recommend.


Easy to set up. Kayaks fit well on these carriers. I will be observing durability.


This was my second large order from and my wife I are VERY pleased! Our first order was a Curt 5th wheel hitch which performed as advertised - so easy to use.
Now we haul our 5th wheel camper and that takes up my entire full sized F250 truck bed which in turn messed up hauling the kayaks back there. I was leaning toward rigging something up on the back of the camper, saw lots of posts on how to many looked very sketchy. Rather than risk dumping our two $$$ fishing kayaks onto the highway.... somewhere..... we bought this GREAT Yakima roof rack system for the TOP of my truck cab. You see, it made me uneasy that I wouldn't be able to keep an eye on our boats if strapped to the back AND we read about many horror stories not limited to the rear bumper falling off from fatigue. Yakima Install; I'm a General Contractor and fancy myself a pretty handy guy so mounting the towers, the rack bars, and all of the accessories onto those took a total three hours. [on-line] videos very useful and follow the easy to read instructions that come with each part and you'll have NO trouble. I have to add, etrailer said it would take one week but I received the complete order within four days. Thank you etrailer for making the ordering through delivery experience so very streamlined!


First of all, 5 stars to etrailer as usual. They are amazing. I purchased a Yakima kayak rack, actually 2 and have installed them both on the Jeep roof. Both fit great. Great product that fit my situation. I have bought Yakima products in the past, always great fit form and function. I highly recommend both etrailer and Yakima products.


Extremely well made, very easy to install. My Hobie Outback rides beautifully on them.


i use with yakima big catch on top of cargo van
rollers work great to help get my 12 foot top water on the roof alone.
the other part works great to hold the front of kayak in place.


Purchased a Yakima kayak carrier with rollers. Yakima produces a quality product, but it is a bit pricey.


I'm a 65 yr. old female with a 42 lb kayak. This is the easiest loading system I have used.


Everything is what I expected! Works great! Looking at buying other items from them !!!

  • Will Yakima Kayak Carrier # Y04083-04082 Fit Thule AeroBlade Crossbars
    Yes, the Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # Y04083-04082 that you referenced will fit Thule AeroBlade Crossbars. The only thing you will want to verify is that you have at least a 24 inch crossbar spread (distance between the two crossbars, on center). I have attached a short video demonstration on the kayak carrier that you can check out as well.

  • Does Yakima BowDown and Deckhand Kayak Carrier Fit on 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
    I checked with Yakima and the Deckhand and BowDown part # Y04083-04082 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for the factory crossbars of your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon. You would not need to buy an additional roof rack as these would attach directly. If you bought the Deckhand and the BowDown pieces separately there would be no difference from ordering this kit as it's the same components just kitted together differently. Whether or not you could fit two of these on your bars will...

  • Can the Yakima Kayak Carrier # Y04083-04082 Fit on My Factory Rack on My 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser?
    We definitely have a way to confirm whether your round bars on your 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser work with the Yakima Kayak Carrier # Y04083-04082. As long as the round bars on your rack are at least 1-1/8 inches in diameter, the # Y04083-04082 can clamp onto those bars. I recommend measuring the diameter of your bars to make sure they fit into this thickness requirement.

  • Is Anything Else Needed with the HandRoll Kayak Carrier on a 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The HandRoll Carrier # Y04082 that you referenced is actually just the part of the carrier that has the wheels. To complete the carrier you also need some saddles like the DeckHand # Y04083. This combination is available for your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon in the kit # Y04083-04082 and is compatible with round, square, or aero-style crossbars. To add locks to either setup you need the 4 lock core set # Y07204.

  • 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...

  • Will the Yakima HandRoll Work to Transport a 57-Pound Kayak on My 2013 Mini Countryman?
    I have a kayak carrier solution for you. The Yakima HandRoll # Y04082 only comes with the roller portion of the setup. With this 1/2 system, are is no front supports that allow you to mount the kayak. In order to have the full setup, you need the # Y04083-04082 that include the saddles. In order to determine if this system will clamp around your factory crossbars on your 2013 Mini Countryman, I recommend measuring your crossbars.

  • What Size Round Bars Will the Yakima Kayak Carrier Part # Y04083-04082 Fit
    The Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style with Rollers part # Y04083-04082 is designed to fit a wide variety of roof rack systems including the round bars similar to Yakima Round 48" CrossBars for Yakima Roof Rack Systems part # Y00408. They will work on round bars down to 1-1/8" in diameter. You will find most manufacturers use aftermarket roof racks from name brand companies like Yakima as their in dealer add on shops.

  • Could Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer Carry Kayaks and Bikes
    The Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 has a 500 lb capacity and HD load bars that are 78 inches long so it would easily carry the weight of your 80 lb boat, kayaks, and mountain bikes. One great feature is that you could put the boat on the bottom level and the other items you plan to carry on the top level or vice versa as needed. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Is Yakima Kayak Carrier Compatible With Fishing Kayak With Scupper Holes
    Yes, you can use the Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style with Rollers # Y04083-04082 with your Jackson fishing kayak with scupper holes. Those holes will not interfere with the mounting that this carrier provides. The only thing to keep in mind is that this carrier has an 80 lb weight capacity and quite a few fishing kayaks are heavier than that, including some of the Jackson fishing kayaks I saw.

  • Best Kayak Carrier for Ease of Loading and Clearance on a 2016 Chevrolet Suburban
    The best rooftop kayak carrier we have for your 2016 Chevrolet Suburban is the Yakima Kayak Carrier part # Y04083-04082. This carrier uses saddles so it will provide the best clearance when pulling into the garage and it has rollers so once you get the bow/hull on top of the roof you can simple push it the rest of the way on. It comes with all of the tie-downs you need but you can add locks for security using part # Y07204. It is also easily removable using the hand knobs because each piece...

  • Is Yakima Y04091 Big Catch Kayak Carrier Lockable?
    The Yakima # Y04091 BigCatch isn't lockable, for a similar locking kayak carrier, I'd recommend the # Y04083-04082 Kayak Carrier. If the 80 lb capacity will accommodate your kayak, this would be a good choice for easy loading and unloading. If the 80 lb capacity isn't sufficient, your best bet would be to go with the BigCatch and simply remove the carrier when you're leaving the vehicle unattended.

  • Fitment of the Yakima Kayak Carrier # Y04083-04082 on OEM Crossbars on a 2013 BMW 328xi Sedan
    While there is definitely a way to determine if the Yakima Kayak Carrier # Y04083-04082 fit onto your OEM roof rack on your 2013 BMW 328xi Sedan, we do not have the exact width and height specs for your particular crossbars. With that being said, the # Y04083-04082 is designed to fit crossbars that do not exceed 3-1/8" wide x 1" tall. As long as your crossbars are within these parameters, you can use the carrier. I recommend measuring your height and width of your bars to make sure. It...

  • Best Kayak Carrier To Use With My 2014 SylvanSport Go Utility/Tent Trailer
    I have a bunch of ways for you to get your Kayak up on top of your 2014 SylvanSport Go Trailer, but the Thule Hullavator isn't going to be an option because you will need to have 4 to 8 inches of bar overhang. Which, from what I can see there is no overhang on the existing bars you have. The best route to go in your situation would be getting a foam pad to wrap around your crossbars. I like the Malone Foam Block Cargo Carrier # MPG154 which are 12 inches long. Theses will fit any kayak...

    I do have a solution for you, however the Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier # TH898 referenced in your question is not compatible with the factory roof rack on your 2016 Chrysler Town and Country. The vehicle's crossbars and roof simply do not have the needed weight capacity to support this particular system. I confirmed this with Thule.

This bar space is required to mount this particular load-assisted kayak carrier without the risk of it contacting the side of the vehicle when it is in the down position. However, we do offer other types of load-assisted kayak carriers that fit on your Honda factory crossbars. These do not share the gas strut-type...

Two of these racks would easily fit but it might be challenging to get the two kayaks next to each other since your bars are not super long. Another solution that would work great is the Thule Compass part # TH890000 which can easily fit two 29 inch kayaks and would also fit well on your Subaru bars. Due to it's design it wouldn't be challenging to fit...

  • Rhino-Rack Nautic 581 vs Yakima Roller Carrier Installation for Pungo 120 Kayak
    The Rhino-Rack Nautic 581 # RR581 and Yakima Kayak Carrier # Y04083-04082 will both fit just fine with your Pungo 120 kayak. I really like the Yakima option due to the rollers so that's what I recommend, but either one will fit with your kayak. The Nautic 581 mounts via T-Slot while the Yakima uses clamps to install on the crossbars. The T-Slot installation will look a little more clean but the clamping system is easier to install. Attached are review videos for you to check out.

    I have a solution for you, but the Yakima DeckHand and HandRoll kit, part # Y04083-04082 are only rated to carry 80 pound kayaks. This limit is because of the spring-loading used in the saddles and rollers. Since it seems like you want to stick with a hull down load, which makes a lot of sense considering that my research shows the Feelfree Lure 13.5 weighs about 95 pounds, I'd stick to saddle style racks. Specifically, the Lockrack Adjustable XL, part # LR54FR is one of the better...
