  • Recommended Tie Down Straps for Increased Security with Roof Rack Accessories
  • There is not a product we carry that has an integrated cable inside the tie-down. I recommed the Rhino-Rack Cam Buckle Cinch Straps - Locking - 11-1/2' Long x 1" Wide - 496 lbs - Qty 2 # RRRTD35L which is a locking strap for increased security. All of our straps are made of polypropylene material that is similar to a seat belt which is difficult to cut, but still possible. I've attached a link to all your options.

  • Does Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier Fit 2020 Chevy Blazer
  • Yes it will! Your 2020 Chevy Blazer does have the appropriate distance between the crossbars so you can mount the Thule kayak carrier, which is the following part: - Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830 This post-style kayak carrier will give you a really easy way to haul up to four kayaks at once on top of your 2020 Chevy Blazer.

  • I have straps that will work for your Yakima Mako Kayak Saddles. We do not offer the shorter straps for your carrier but we do offer straps that will work just as well. The straps I recommend are part # Y05006. These straps are 16-ft long which is about 2-ft longer than the original straps that came with the Mako system. My contact at Yakima confirmed these would work well for you.

  • Will the Yakima Q Tower Roof Rack Support an Extension Ladder on a 2013 Scion xB
  • You can carry an extension ladder on your 2013 Scion xB with the Yakima Q Tower Roof Rack, but there are a few factors you will want to take into consideration. Once this roof rack is installed, you will have a crossbar spread of 45 inches. The crossbar spread is the distance from the center of the front crossbar to the center of the rear crossbar. The most important factor to consider is the weight of the ladder. The Yakima Q-Tower crossbars have a weight capacity of 165 lbs, however,...

  • Does Hitch Adapter Reduce Hitch Capacity By 50 Or Vehicle Capacity By 50?
  • There sure is! First you are correct that according to the owner's manual of your 2017 Subaru Forester you are limited to a 200lbs tongue weight. Since you have the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2" # e98839 installed on your 2017 Subaru Forester has a 525lb tongue weight rating you can use a dual hitch adapter # MT70070 which will reduce the tongue weight capacity by 50%, and not the capacity of your vehicle. This will still allow...

  • Which Would be Stronger the HitchMate QuickCinch Utility Straps or Softride Soft Tie-Downs
  • Both of the straps you mentioned do not have weight capacities, but due to how Velcro works the longer # HE4084 would be stronger than the shorter # SR54FR that you referenced. The longer the strap the more connection gets made between the hook and loop sides of the strap so that makes it a bit stronger.

  • Roof Rack For 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan With Raised Side Rails For Carrying Kayaks
  • We can get your 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan set up to carry three kayaks, but the part you mentioned is a specific fit for a Malone trailer and won't fit your Tiguan. Instead, since your Tiguan has raised side rails, what you will need to is add a roof rack and then a kayak carrier. Having those raised side rails is really nice since you will only need a couple of parts to add a roof rack, which are the following: - Inno Aero Crossbars # INXB130-138 - Inno Through Feet for Aero Crossbars...

  • Tie-down Straps Needed to Attach a Web Strap Between Two Poles and Have Adjustment
  • I thought about your application for a bit and came up with what I think may work for you, but the Yakima Cargo Tie Downs, # Y05006, probably would not be the best item for your situation. Instead the Yakima Boat and Cargo Strap Tie-Down Kit, item # Y04031, is about the same cost but has the parts that I believe will work for you.

  • Best Kayak Carriers for 2017 Honda HR-V EX with Bare Roof
  • Foam block type kayak carriers like the # MPG152 from Malone and similar carriers from other makers sometimes include some tie down straps, which absolutely should be installed on both bow and stern ends of the kayaks. Since the Coastal happens to be sold without straps you will definitely need an item like the Cam Buckle Cinch Straps # E98876-2 or the 16-foot Yakima Cinch Straps # Y05006 that you referenced in your question. Using two sets of straps is not a bad idea either. Foam block...

  • Recommended Cargo Basket For 2003 Volvo xc90 With Factory Roof Rack
  • The cargo basket I recommend for your 2003 Volvo xc90 is the Thule Canyon XT # TH859XT. This basket fits your OEM crossbars on your vehicle as long as the crossbars do not exceed 3-1/8" wide x 1" tall. Also, you need to make sure that your crossbar spread can be adjusted between 20" - 37". I recommend measuring your crossbar setup to make sure that your roof rack fits within these parameters. To add security to the basket, I recommend using the one-key locks # TH450400. For load straps...

  • I confirmed with my contact at MaxxHaul that the thickness of the shank tube on the MaxxTow 27x47 Cargo Carrier w/ Pivoting Ramp MT70100 is 0.14 inches. If you need straps to secure your cargo, the etrailer Cam Buckle Cinch Straps w/ Buckle Protectors - 1" x 13' # E98876-4 is a great choice.

  • How Long of Straps to Use to Secure Canoe to Roof Rack
  • The length of the Rhino-Rack Cam Buckle Cinch Straps # RRRTD35P that you mentioned is 11-1/2 feet which is pretty close to the length of the canoe straps we sell like part # E98876-2 which are 13 feet long. I'd recommend going with the # E98876-2 but if you wanted to use the Rhino Rack it should work fine.

  • Are Rubber Protectors of Thule Tie-Down Straps Available Separately
  • The rubber protectors of the Thule Load Strap Cinch Straps with Padded Cam Buckles # TH521 are not available as a separate part, so if that is a feature you like - and they do offer great protection - then you will need to purchase the straps as a whole. I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well of the Thule Load Strap Cinch Straps with Padded Cam Buckles # TH521.

  • Recommended Tie-Down Straps for Trailer Storage Cover
  • Any durable strap system with a sufficient length will work well to tighten up the slack on your trailer's storage cover to help prevent it from billowing in the wind. I recommend using something like the Snap-Loc Cinch Strap # SLTC150CR, which provides you with a 50 foot strap that may let you loop it around the trailer before cinching it down. Using just two or three of these on the cover should do the trick. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Is the Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier Good To Use Long-Distance?
  • Yes, the Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier w/ Hitch Mounted Load Extender and Single-Bar Roof Rack DTA944-968-924 will work for a 300-mile trip when secured properly. For straps to safely secure your kayak on the Extend-A-Truck, I recommend the Thule Load Strap Cinch Straps w/ Padded Cam Buckles - 9' - 750 lbs - Qty 2 # TH521. Also, in order for the Extend-A-Truck to be properly attached to your hitch receiver, I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - Flush...
