Video Transcript for Yakima Saddle Style Kayak Carrier Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Yakima Kayak Carrier with tie downs, part number Y04083-04082. The Yakima Kayak Carrier is a versatile carrier that allows you to carry one kayak with the whole side down on your vehicle's roof rack cross bars. This is great for sea, river, recreational, and most fishing kayaks. The carrier comes with two load straps, one at the front and one at the back, this is going to secure your kayak to your cross bars, and two anchor straps. One at the front and one at the back here as well, that are going to secure your kayak to your vehicle. The load straps include strap keepers to help tie up your excess, and padded cam buckles to help prevent any scratches or abrasions on your kayak. The bow and stern straps have this plastic coating over a portion of the strap. This is going to help prevent any scratches or abrasions on a portion where the strap might touch your vehicle. The Yakima Kayak Carrier has an 80 pound weight capacity.

The flexible saddles help provide maximum support for your kayak, and the felt padding helps to slide your kayak in place. The rollers at the back make for easy loading from the rear of your vehicle. The carrier has the option to insert the same key system lock core to secure your carrier to your roof rack. The Yakima Kayak Carrier works with round, square, arrow, elliptical, and most factory cross bars, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. The installation is quick and easy. We'll show you how to do that now. We don't have to use our round bar adapter, because we're applying this to our factory roof rack system.

We're just going to take the clamps, and wrap them around our cross bar. Once we have that in place, we'll tighten down our knob. We've got that tightened down. Now we can place on our rollers in the back. Now we'll take our roller and place it in line with our front pad, and we'll tighten it down.

Once we have that secured, we're ready to load up our kayak. Before we actually strap down our kayak, we're going to take our strap keeper that is included, and we're going to feed it through on the back side. We'll pull our strap all the way through until it's closer to our cam. Now we're ready to feed our straps through, and secure it down. We'll take our front strap. We're going to slide it into this slot here, underneath our carrier and to the other keeper at the bottom.

Then we'll just continue to take our strap through the same keepers on the opposite side. We'll take our cam buckle and the end of our strap, and feed it through the cam. We'll tighten this up, and then tie down our excess. We're going to fold this up, and we'll put it in our strap keeper. Here on the back half of our kayak, we're going to take our strap and feed it underneath our cross bar, and send it over to the other side. We've taken our strap underneath the other side of our crossbar. We're going to now fold up our excess and secure it with the strap keeper that we've placed on. Now we can move on to our bow and stern straps. Here we're at the back of our vehicle. We're going to secure this strap here through our strap on our kayak. We're going to feed it through itself and pull it down. Now we'll grab our strap with the hook. Now we're ready to secure our hook to our vehicle. We want to make sure we secure it to a metal portion and nothing plastic. I'm going to secure it here in back at our safety chain loop. Then we'll take the rest of our strap up, and secure it through our buckle. We'll make sure to tighten down our strap and tie up our excess. Now we can repeat the same process for the front of our vehicle. When using this on a round bar application, we're going to take our adaptor. Make sure we have it completely opened, and secure it around our bar. Then we can take each piece of our kayak carrier and secure it around our adapter, and tighten that down. Now we'll repeat that same process for our other roller and our two saddles. That's going to be our completed look at the Yakima Kayak Carrier with tie downs, part number Y04083-04082.

This was my second large order from Etrailer.com 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! 529216

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. 518227

Purchased a Yakima kayak carrier with rollers. Yakima produces a quality product, but it is a bit pricey. 427642

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! 415389

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Watersport Carriers


  • Load Assisted Kayak Carriers for 2019 Honda Pilot for 2 Kayaks
  • The Thule Hullavator Kayak Carriers # TH898 weigh 40-lbs each by themselves so the two empty carriers alone will consume half of the Pilot's rated 165-lb roof capacity. While there are some lightweight kayaks out there most weigh 40-lbs or more apiece. Apart from the weight concern there is the matter of space; each Hullavator requires 31-inches of space on the crossbars so the Pilot would have to be fitted with very long bars. Even the longest aftermarket roof rack bars made for your...

  • Yakima Outdoorsman Ladder Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Ford F-250
  • The Yakima Outdoorsman 300 Ladder Rack for full size trucks like your 2017 Ford F-250 is actually going to be # Y01137-Y00411. The one you asked about is for compact trucks. The Outdoorsman is compatible with all current Yakima roof kayak carriers because the bars are the same size as the roof rack bars. The most popular Yakima option is the JayLow, # Y04073. But you may want to consider a rear loading option with rollers such as # Y04083-04082 since trucks are so tall. I have linked...

  • Carrying a FeelFree Lure 13.5 Fishing Kayak on the Roof of a 2016 GMC Acadia
  • 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 Swagman Coronado saddle rack, part # S65149 is one of the...

  • Is Anything Else Needed with the HullyRoller Kayak Carrier on a 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The HullyRoller Carrier # Y04035 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. Please note that the HullyRoller is only compatible with round or square roof rack crossbars. If you have the OEM aero-style crossbars on your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon then you would be better off going with the Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # Y04083-04082 which uses the same style of...

This rack has a 120-lb maximum weight rating and 28-inch bar spread. We have lots of choices in kayak carriers that fit on these square Thule crossbars and these appear on the linked page.

  • Can Yakima Kayak Carrier Work With TracRac Crossbar
  • The size of the TracRac crossbars will not let you install the Yakima Kayak Carrier # Y04083-04082. The only option is to use Thule Surf Pad # TH804. You will also want some tie-downs to secure the bow and stern of the kayak. I also recommend bow and stern tie-downs like the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT.

  • Can Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier be Used on 2016 Town and Country with Factory Roof Rack
  • 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. I instead recommend taking a look at the Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # Y04083-04082. This system includes 2 padded pivoting rollers that will...

  • You have a few options in how you can transport your two kayaks on your 2016 Honda CR-V that has factory-installed roof crossbars. These include carriers that offer assisted loading, such as the Yakima roller carrier # Y04083-04082 as well as very cost-effective foam block carriers that mount on your factory bars. Note that in order to use two of the Glide and Set your crossbars have to provide 53-inches or more of available space. The best way to help decide which way to go is to confirm...

  • Parts Needed to Use the Yakima HullyRoller on a 2016 Jeep Cherokee with Factory Front-to-Back Rails
  • If you just have the factory side rails that fun front to back on your 2016 Jeep Cherokee then you will first need a roof rack before you can add a kayak carrier. I recommend going with an aero style crossbar system as they are more aesthetic, have a great aerodynamic design, and they reduce wind noise and drag compared to traditional round or square crossbar designs. For your application you can use the JetStream Crossbars, part # Y00425 for Black or part # Y00428 for Silver, as well...

  • Can Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier and Square Bar Roof Rack Work on 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and he stated that the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier and Lift Assist # TH898 referenced in your question is not compatible with the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan. This is simply because the weight capacity of the Grand Caravan along with a roof rack is not sufficient to support the Hullavator. I instead recommend looking at the Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # Y04083-04082. This system is a bit different than the Hullavator but it does also offer...

  • How Far Down to Arms on Thule Hullavator Extend for Kayak Loading
  • The Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 referenced in your question will sit 40 inches lower than the top of the roof rack crossbars when extended down for kayak loading. Please note though that this particular carrier does have a 75 pound weight capacity so your 80 pound Hobie Kayak will be exceeding its limit. Another option that will provide some assistance with loading your heavier kayak is the Yakima Kayak Carrier # Y04083-04082. This system includes 2 padded rollers that...

  • Load-Assisted Thule Kayaks Carrier for 2015 Honda CR-V with Factory Bars
  • In order to use the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 the vehicle must have roof crossbars that provide at least 4-inches of available bar space outside the foot assembly. 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...

This includes the 50" JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 for Black or # Y00428 for Silver along with the BaseLine Towers # Y00146, and Fit Kit # Y06102. To lock this roof rack you will also need the SKS Lock Cores # Y07204. This system has a weight capacity of 165 lbs. The Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073 is one of our most popular carriers that will leave enough room on your roof for you...

  • Kayak Carrier for TracRac TracOne Ladder Racks
  • Because of the size of the TracRac ladder rack crossbars the Yakima Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Saddle Style with Rollers - Clamp On Item # Y04083-04082 will not fit properly. Pretty much the only option is to use Thule Surf Pad - Crossbar Pad for Aero, Xsporter and Factory Bars - 24" Long - Qty 2 Item # TH804. You will also want some tie-downs to secure the bow and stern of the kayak. I recommend Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops - 13' - Qty 2 - # TH855XT.

  • Can 2 Yakima ShowDown Carriers be Used on a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • To use the Yakima ShowDown # Y04081 you would need a roof rack where the crossbars extend past the legs at least 3-1/2". From what I can tell, the Mopar roof rack for your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee has crossbars that end where the legs fit. I do have a solution for you to carry your kayaks but when I reached out to my contact at Yakima she said you would need to at least use their 70" crossbar and that 2 of the ShowDown carriers will be at least 80" wide when placed side by side. Because...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Jeep Cherokee
  • Many racks will be designed with overhang in mind for a variety of reasons. This can range from intending to have tie-down points for a load to maximizing carrying capacity. I also recommend that people use Aero shaped bars for kayak and watersport applications, as the width of the bars is helpful in controlling and mounting the load. For your roof rack, I recommend a Yakima JetStream kit, consisting of: - Yakima JetStream 50" Crossbars, black, part # Y00425 , or silver, part...

  • 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.

  • 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...

The kit also comes with the necessary straps to secure a kayak to your vehicle. If you want to lock the carrier to the roof rack you can add SKS lock cores # Y07204. This is assuming that the vehicle has the crossbars that run side to side on the vehicle roof and not just the rails that run front to back. If you do not have the crossbars that run...

The SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack part # 298-SX6000 that you have are about 1-1/4" diameter so they cannot be used together which it sounds like you are aware of.
