J-style cradles let you transport 1 kayak safely and securely on your roof rack crossbars. Carries kayak on its side to free up space for additional gear on your roof rack. Universal mount. Includes tie-downs.


Have only taken it out once so far but it was easy to put on and use. Could be easy for someone to steal, I put bike locks on mine to prevent that.


I have used these before, so this is a slightly different version, but equally functional. Directions are easily understood and it works on a variety of roof racks.


I have four of these. Never had a problem. When you can get them on sale I think these are the best bang for the buck as far as kayak carriers go.


Arrived within 2 days of my order. Easy assembly and very sturdy construction.
Very pleased!



I really like this JayHooks. They are well made. They are easy to use (install on top of my vehicle). The customer service is great as well.


Easy to install and work great. Hauled a kayak at 70mph and not a single worry at all when correctly secure.


Looks good. Seems easy enough to put on and take off. Can't wait to take kayak to the river


easy to install...very haPPY WITH YOUR SERvice

    The Yakima ShowDown Kayak or SUP Carrier and Lift Assist w/ Tie-Downs - Side Loading - Clamp On # Y04081 is a great option for your Moken Kayak. Then for the BKC I recommend the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - J-Style - Fixed - Side Loading # Y04084 if you want a non-folding option or the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - J-Style or Post Style - Folding - 1 or 2 Kayaks # Y04073.

  • Can 4 Bikes and 1 Kayak be Transported on Top Bar of Yakima EasyRider Trailer
    The Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 comes with the 78" Yakima HD crossbars. You can definitely fit your 4 bikes (as the 78" bars can accommodate 6 bikes) and you might be able to also fit your kayak but you'll want to test it out a little to confirm this beforehand. The JayHook # Y04084 will fit the HD bars (my contact at Yakima said it might be a little tricky to fit, but it does fit), and it measures 9-1/2" wide. Since your kayak will be sitting at an angle your whole...

  • Recommended Platform Rack for a 2021 Subaru Ascent
    I did a little digging around and it looks like the roof on your 2021 Suabru Ascent is around 63 inches, making the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray # Y05045 with the TimberLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y33TR, and the LockNLoad SL Adapter for Yakima SkyLine and TimberLine Towers # Y05042-2 near perfect. This platform rack measures 60" long, 54" wide, and will be a perfect addition to your Subaru for all your camping and luggage needs. This rack also has top channels so you can...

  • Will Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier Work with Ladder Rack for 2022 Toyota Tacoma with Deck Rails
    The Yakima JayHook # Y04084 has mounting hardware that is compatible with a variety of crossbar designs, including the aero style that we find with the Rola Haul-Your-Might T3 # 59799 that fits your 2022 Toyota Tacoma with the Deck Rail System. If you are using the Yakima JayLow # Y04073 with the Round Bar Adapter then you can simply remove the adapter for the clamping system to work with aero-style crossbars.

  • What Kayak Carrier Do You Recommend for My 2020 Ford Explorer Crossbars?
    For a kayak carrier that is confirmed to fit your 2020 Ford Explorer factory crossbars, I recommend the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # Y04084. The JayHook carrier allows you to transport 1 kayak on its side in order to save extra room on your rack if you wish to mount extra accessories. The JayHook comes with 2 load straps to secure your kayak to your crossbars as well as 2 ratcheting bow/stern ties to anchor your kayak to your 2020 Ford Explorer. If you need to transport...

  • How do You Attach a Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier to a Yakima MightyMount?
    From the looks of the photo you provided (thanks so much for this!), you have the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier # Y04084. I went ahead and attached the specific information you need to attach the JayHook to the MightyMount # Y03590. One of the important things to remember is that since the JayHook requires for you to use the large carriage bolt with the MightyMount, it is important that you also use the large bail. You will attach the Jayhoook to the MightyMounts with the large carriage...

  • Can the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier Be Used on a Malone MicroSport Trailer
    It would depend on the model of the Malone MicroSport. Assuming you are talking about a model like the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G with 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" square crossbars, then yes the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier # Y04084 can be used.

  • Can 2 Yakima JayHook Carriers Be Used on 2022 Subaru Forester OEM Roof Rack System
    Hey Amy, thanks for reaching out! The Yakima JayHook Kayak Roof Rack w/ Tie-Downs # Y04084 measure 9-1/2" from the front of the hook to the back of the upright, so you'll technically be able to get 2 sets on the 27" wide crossbar on your 2022 Subaru Forester. With that being said, the OEM crossbars sit really close to your roof so while the JayHook will technically fit, the mounting hardware will be dangerously close to touching your roof when loaded so I recommend swapping those bars...

  • Can 4 Kayaks be Carried on Malone XtraLight Trailer
    Yes, you can definitely use your Malone XtraLight to carry 4 kayaks! To do this I recommend using 4 sets of the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier # Y04084 which comes with it's own set of tie-downs. For a more economical option you could use the Yakima BigStack # Y04041 with the extra set of tie-downs # Y05006, but this will be a little bit more of a hassle when loading and unloading your kayaks. Attached are some review videos that you can check out.

  • Does the Yakima JayHook Fit the SkyLine System on a 2005 Honda Element
    The Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier, part # Y04084, are compatible with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. Luckily, most of the crossbars made for the SkyLine Towers, part # Y00152, fall into one of those categories.

  • Is There a Recommended Side to Side Spacing Between Multiple Yakima JayHook Kayak Carriers
    No, there is not really a recommended spacing between the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carries # Y04084 side-to-side on your Malone trailer. It is really just trial and error, because everyone's kayaks can range in shape, size, weight and length. There are a couple different approaches. You can start by putting all 4 JayHook's on evenly spaced across the bars and then shift them as needed. Or you can put the first JayHook on as far to one side as possible, load the first kayak on that rack and...

  • Replacement Lower Bail or Clamp for the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier
    Yes we do for the bail and hardware the Replacement Mounting Hardware for Yakima Roof Mounted Kayak Carriers part # 8860051 will do the trick and for just the bail the Replacement Aero Mount Bales for Yakima Rooftop Carriers part # Y8860053 will get the job done.

  • Will The Yakima Jayhook Kayak Carrier Work with a Factory Rack on a 2009 Lexus GX 470?
    Yes, I confirmed with Yakima that the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - J-Style # Y04084 will fit with your factory raised rails with factory crossbars. For the basket, I did some research and found out that the Yakima MegaWarrior Extra Large Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07080-82 is compatible with your factory rack on the 2009 Lexus GX 470. I recommend the MegaWarrior over the Rhino-Rack XTray Pro Cargo Basket # RRRMCB03 and the Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket # Y07138 because...

  • How to Lock Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier # Y04084 to Trailer Crossbars
    The mounting brackets for the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier # Y04084 are made of a durable plastic, so I'm not sure replacing the included hardware with standard bolts and nuts is the best idea. If you're worried about theft, what you could do is loop a standard cable lock like the Yakima # Y07233 through the mounting bracket and around the crossbar to secure it into place. This would make it pretty difficult (and time consuming) for a passing stranger to remove the carrier.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation to Fit Trailer with Inno Square Crossbars
    Yes the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier part # Y04084 that you referenced would fit and work great on Inno square crossbars. For a similar in price option I'd recommend the etrailer J-style carrier part # e98878 though as it can fold down when not in use and has a bit more padding as well. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Ladder Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2019 Ford F-150
    Yakima does not sell pads for the JayHook Kayak Carrier, part # Y04084. However, this carrier is already padded on all points where contact with the kayak is made, and it is a great choice to transport you kayaks. I've linked to a video review of this carrier for you to look at. As for the crossbars for your 2019 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot bed, the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack, part # Y01151-59, is also a great choice. I've linked to a video review of this as well.

  • Does the Yakima Jay Hook Kayak Carrier Need Additional Hardware to Attach to my 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe
    Most of the Yakima J Style Kayak Carriers like the Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # Y04084 are designed to work with both of the crossbars types you have mentioned. There will be no need for additional hardware to attach it to these crossbars. If you have a different type or possibly an older type carrier please let me know what it is and I will help to identify the components needed. There will be a small black sticker on them telling us what the part number of the carrier...

  • Aero-Style Roof Rack Recommended for 2022 Ram 1500 Crew Cab
    For a more quiet roof rack, you'll want to avoid square bars or crossbars with a round profile. I'd recommend a Yakima CoreBar roof rack, which would consist of the following parts: • Yakima 70 Inch CoreBar crossbars, part # Y00423 • Yakima BaseLine roof rack towers, part # Y28TR • Yakima vehicle specific fit clips, part # Y06135 At only 1 inch thick and 2-3/4 inches wide, the CoreBar crossbars are compatible with most roof rack kayak carriers, as long as they haven't been designed to...

  • Will The Yakima Jayhook Kayak Carrier Fit Onto The Yakima Jetstream Truck Bed Rack?
    The Yakima JayHook Kayak Carrier # Y04084 would work well on your Yakima JetStream Truck Bed Rack Y00427-482104. This carrier has a weight capacity of 80lbs and it simply clamps onto crossbars such as the Yakima Jetstream. Tie-downs are included and you will not need anything else to use this carrier; I attached a demonstration video for you.
