Inno Surf/SUP/Kayak/Canoe Locker dimensions

Inno Surf/SUP/Kayak/Canoe Locker

This locking carrier lets you safely and securely transport 3 short surfboards or 2 long surfboards on your vehicle's roof rack. The carrier is easy to load and use with integrated straps and ratcheting hand knobs. Adjustable pads on the straps and rubber padding on the carrier base protect your boards during transport. The Locker installs easily with clamp-on hardware.

Easy-to-Load System

Inno Board Locker straps and knob

The carrier is easy to use and easy to load. There are 2 long straps that stretch over your surfboards and secure to 2 short straps. Connect the wire loops on the short straps to the hooks on the ends of the long straps.

Inno Board Locker loaded

Slide your boards onto the padded bars under the connected straps, then tighten down the straps with the ratcheting knobs.

Inno Board Locker tension release

When it's time to remove your cargo, lift the tension release levers under the covers to loosen the straps and unhook them.

Protective Padding

Inno Board Locker pads

Rubber coating on the straps and adjustable corner pads help to protect your boards from scratches and scuffs during transport. Integrated rubber padding on the carrier base also adds protection for your boards.

Simple Installation

Inno Board Locker on roof

The carrier is simple to install and requires no tools. It clamps easily with included hardware to most crossbars. To install, flip the cam lever on the mounting clamp to loosen the bolt and release it from the lower mounting bracket. Slide the bracket under the crossbar and reattach the bolt to the bracket. Tighten the knob and close the lever.

Inno Board Locker adapters

Adapters are included for mounting the carrier on different crossbar styles. Adapter blocks let you mount the carrier to round or square crossbars. Rubber pads are also included for use when mounting the carrier to aero, elliptical, or factory crossbars.

Locking Covers

Inno Board Locker lock

Four locking covers secure your boat or boards to the carrier and the carrier to your crossbars. With the covers locked and closed the ratcheting knobs cannot be turned and the tension-release levers cannot be accessed to loosen the straps. The locked covers also deny access to the mounting hardware so the carrier cannot be removed from your crossbars.

This locking carrier lets you transport 3 shortboard or 2 longboard surfboards on your roof rack. Ratcheting straps connect over boards and tighten with hand knobs. Integrated pads on carrier protect boards. Easy, clamp-on installation.


Just used them for the first time, wish I knew of these years ago. Boards are held in place securely and extremely easy to secure using the ratcheting mechanism. The crane is a fantastic idea, wasn't sure at first but it raises the back cable enough so the board can slip under it. No more going to the other side of the car to pass the strap under and over, as one must do with buckle style straps. Great product and recommend to all surfers looking for an upgrade to a faster system to secure boards to roof racks with some built in security. Thank You INNO.


I gotta say these make surfing prep a much easier experience. There is a bit of a learning curve during the first installation but once you figure it out it’s fairly simple.


Great racks. Easy install. Videos posted on e-trailer were helpful and realistic.


I owned one 5 years ago. I sold the car and ordered another. The quality of the first one was better. This one took over 7 months to arrive. The winding tie down is very cheap and I already have trouble with it. they are not easy and at times get stuck. They are not as well made as the prior tie downs inno had.


Good product. The Inno Board Locker is a quality surf rack and it is straightforward in its installation and use. It is easy to put the boards on the rack and holds them very securely while travelling. I did have a small problem when installing them on my 2019 Subaru Forester with factory crossbars. The crossbars have thicker end pieces on them to attach to the raised rails. These thicker parts are just far enough apart to make mounting the surf rack difficult. I had to mount one end of the rack on the thicker part and the other end on the thinner aero crossbar. The Inno rack is just a bit too wide to mount in between the end pieces on the thinner crossbar iteslf. And it is a bit too narrow to mount on the thicker end pieces. It would be nice if the rack had adjustable end pieces so we could move the ends in/out to compensate for that difference. The INA466 might be a better choice because it doesnt come with a crossbar so the ends of the rack could be moved in/out slightly to accomodate this.


Works amazing, rock solid!


The Inno INA 744 arrived on time and in excellent condition. It fits my factory crossbars like a champ. Easy installation and working with etrailer was professional and a breeze. My long board surfboards fit nicely. Will definitely order from etrailer again!


I do love the carrier. It is super easy to use which makes it better than many of the household name carrier on the market. 5 stars.


Best carrier we ever used. Secure, holds mutiple boards, simple to use. Everything you could ask for in a carrier.


Perfect fit - looks good - recommended


Very communicative and responded quickly to all inquiries.

  • Does Inno Board Locker # INA744 Fit 2014 Nissan Xterra Factory Crossbars
    As long as the crossbars on your 2014 Nissan Xterra are less than 3-1/2 inches wide and 1-1/8 inches tall the Inno Board Locker # INA744 that you referenced will fit and work really well. Check out the review video I attached for this for you to check out as well.

  • Roof Mounted Carrier for 3 Wakeboards pm a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    What I recommend is to use a paddleboard carrier such as # INA445 or # INA744. They can hold up to 3 paddleboards, which are wider than wakeboards so width isn't an issue, but the vehicle will have to have crossbars. If your 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee does not have crossbars that run side to side you can add some. I have linked the roof rack main page for your vehicle. You would just have to select either flush mount rails or no existing rails or bars to see the options.

  • Difference Between Inno Surfboard/Kayak Carriers INA744 vs INA446
    The two Inno racks you referenced are pretty similar but the difference is that the part # INA446 is geared more for carrying a kayak or 2 boards whereas the # INA744 is geared more for carrying boards. It can carry up to 3 short boards or 2 long boards. Basically the kayak geared rack has higher brackets that lock down for securing a tall kayak and the board orientated carrier has lower brackets for the straps.

  • Inno Board Locker # INA744 VS The Inno Locker # INA446 For Carrying Long Boards
    The Board Locker # INA744 is going to be a bit taller of a carrier compared to the Inno Locker # INA446. Both are going to wrap around your crossbars and work with whatever roof rack you may have, the mechanism is the same thing. You're right though, the board locker # INA744 is going to use it's own bar to support the boards. If it were me, I would get the Inno Board Locker just because it can carry 3 shortboards if need be. For you, I think it comes down to clearance. Since you have a...

  • What is the Difference Between the Inno # INA446 and the # INA744?
    In addition to the SUP foam pad difference, the Inno Board Locker Watersport Carrier # INA446 is geared more for carrying a kayak or 2 boards whereas the Inno Board Locker Surfboard Carrier # INA744 is geared more for carrying boards. It can carry up to 3 short boards or 2 long boards. With the # INA744, there are rubber pads (instead of foam) in between the clamps. Since the rubber is attached to the clamps, there will be no manual placement required. I went ahead and attached a demonstration...

  • Surfboard Carrier for 2017 Honda CR-V With Factory Crossbars
    I may have a solution for you, though you cannot add a roof rack bar to your 2017 Honda CR-V since it already has the factory rack installed. Instead, what you may be able to do, depending on a couple measurements you need to take, is use the Inno Board Locker Surfboard Carrier # INA744. This will work on crossbars that are a minimum of 20 inches apart; you mentioned yours were about 20 inches so I recommend measuring to make sure. You will also need to measure the crossbars themselves....

  • Is Long Bolt Kit Needed to Install INNO Board Locker on 2016 BMW X3 with OEM Crossbars
    The long bolt kit part # INISF711 that you referenced is designed to allow the Inno Board Locker part # INA744 to fit up to 2 inch tall crossbars. The factory crossbars of your 2016 BMW X3 would not be that tall so this adapter would not be needed.

  • Can I Use Inno Board Locker Surfboard Carrier On Factory Bars Of Toyota FJ Without An Adapter
    We have not yet had a chance to test fit the Inno Board Locker Surfboard Carrier The Inno Board Locker # INA744 on the factory bars of a Toyota FJ however, the carrier fits most factory cross bars as long as they are no larger than 3-1/2" wide x 1-1/8" tall which is pretty standard so I do not see you having an issue using this on the FJ. You do want to measure your bars to be sure. If your bars happen to be taller, you can use the long bolt kit # INISF711 to mount the rack to cross bars...

  • Can the Rhino Rack Nautic Stack Be Used to Carry a Surfboard Upright
    I'll start out by saying that the Rhino Rack Nautic Stack # RRS520 is not designed to carry surfboards and I'm not aware of a product that will allow you to hold surfboards in this manner; because of their size and relatively low weight, they're going to be much more susceptible to wind mounted in this manner. I don't believe that a surfboard can be safely secured to roof crossbars in this configuration and the additional movement that would be caused by cross-winds would likely break the...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for Surfboards and Skis on a 2023 Subaru Crosstrek
    In order to carry surfboards and snowboards on a 2023 Subaru Crosstrek you'll first need to start with a roof rack, the most popular option due to the price is the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG216 and it's hard to argue against this option. It features a clamp-on easy install, has aero shaped bars which provides the least about of wind noise, and it has locks for security.

  • Are Crossbars Required for the Inno Board Locker Surfboard Carrier Part # INA744
    In order to use the Inno Board Locker Surfboard Carrier part # INA744 on your Jeep Patriot with raised side rails you would need a set of crossbars. Unfortunately, none of our watersport carriers are designed to attach directly to the raised side rails. Generally speaking, almost all rooftop carriers are designed to attach to crossbars for the exception of some ski carriers and cargo bags. For your Jeep Patriot, I recommend using the Inno Square Crossbar Roof Rack System part # INB117...

  • Recommended Cargo Box and Surfboard Carrier for 2018 Subaru Forester
    I do have both cargo boxes and surf board carriers that can be used on a 2018 Subaru Forester. That said, you won't be able to do both as there just simply isn't enough room, especially with a factory roof rack. The Yakima GrandTour Rooftop Cargo Box part # YA74FR is one of the best roof boxes you can get and then for a surfboard carrier I recommend the Inno Board Locker Surfboard Carrier part # INA744.

  • Compatibility of Lockrack # LR47FR with 7-8ft. Surfboard
    When determining if the Lockrack Adjustable Stand-Up Paddle Board Carrier - 1 SUP # LR47FR works with your 7-8 foot surfboard, it really depends on the width of the board. With the Lockrack, this carrier can accommodate boards between 22-41 inches wide. If you have a board that is thinner than 22 inches, we do not carry shorter arms for the Lockrack carrier. If you have a thinner board, I recommend using a surfboard model that sandwiches the board with a tightening mechanism. For this...

    I do have a solution for you to carry your 20 inch wide surfboard, but the Thule SUP Taxi # TH810001 is only a fit for boards that are between 27" and 34" wide. What I recommend is the Inno Board Locker Surfboard Carrier # INA744 which will be able to carry your 20" wide surfboard. It fits crossbars that have dimensions that are a maximum of 3-1/2" wide x 1-1/8" tall, though they can mount on crossbars that are a maximum of 2" tall with Long Bolt Kit # INISF711. Additionally, your crossbars...

I am also not aware of any way to secure a surf board under a cargo box or a surf board on top of a cargo box.
