Video Transcript for Yakima BowDown Folding J-Style Kayak Carrier Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Yakima BowDown Folding J-Style Kayak Carrier for roof racks, part number Y04042. The Yakima BowDown carries up to one kayak, and secures it into place with the provided straps and bow and stern tie-downs. It's designed to work with both plastic and composite hulls, and works well with recreational, whitewater, and touring kayaks. The mounts themselves will ensure protection for your kayak, with the special padding that it has on the bottom and on the sides. The straps for your kayak are heavy-duty straps with a padded cam buckle, so again it protects the hull of your kayak. It has these small ramps at the front, which is going to make loading your kayak a lot easier. The bow and stern tie-downs also help with stability of the kayak once it's installed, and are very easy to use with this pulley-like system once you're installing it, where you would pull down onto it to secure it to the front and rear.

The bow and stern tie-downs also have this plastic sheath at the end to protect your vehicle when you install it. Now, when the bow and stern tie-downs are still attached, you will not be able to get to the rear of your vehicle or hatch. Now, before you put the bow and stern tie-downs into place, you can see that there's going to be no interference between our hatch and the kayak itself. Like other Yakima products, at the ends here, we do have bottle openers. Now, when our bowdowns are not in use, they do fold down. To do that, loosen this knob six to eight turns.

You want to make sure not to go over that, because you don't want to remove the knob completely. Then we'll just tighten it back up to hold it in place. Also we have these knock-outs here, which you can replace with a Yakima same key system so you can make both your roof rack or other roof accessories keyed alike with this rack. This carries up to one kayak, with a carrying capacity of 80 pounds per kayak, and has a minimum crossbar spread of 24 inches. Its dimensions overall are 5 1/2 inches wide front to back, 20 inches long for the base, 21 inches tall from the top of the crossbar, and about five inches when folded down.

The pad is about 10 inches long. When comparing this to other kayak carriers, one that comes up is the Thule Hull-a-Port Kayak Carrier with tie-downs, part number TH834. Now, when talking about the differences between these two kayak carriers, the biggest differences are going to be that the Yakima does have the load-assist ramps as well as the potential locks included, while the Thule does not have either of those. Now that we've gone over some of the features of the bowdown, let's go ahead and show you how it installs. We have one of our mounts already installed, and now we're going to focus on this one. These are the other materials that will come with the kit once you get it.

The first thing we'll do is we'll open up our mount by loosening up the red knob here at the end. Open it to where we need it, and then we'll take the red knob and tighten it back down to hold it in place. Now we can focus on our clamp. We'll loosen up our handle here, turn our T-bolt end so the clamp opens up, and notice that right now we have the silver T-bolt installed. Depending on what style of roof rack you have, you can switch it to a shorter black T-bolt. We won't be needing that today though. Then you have these three notches here. Right now we have our clamp set in the middle, which is going to work with our roof rack. This should also work with round bars as well. For square bars you'd want to switch it to the first notch here. However, with other factory style bars, you may have to switch it to the third or second, depending on what kind of vehicle you have. With our bowdown mount situated now, set it on our roof rack, and how you want the setup, you actually want the edge here going slightly past the edge of your crossbar. You also want it to match up with the front one as much as you can. Now we can bring our clamp up underneath, and turn it so it'll catch underneath like so. We want to make sure that it's as vertical as possible before you tighten it down. We'll just tighten this up. All right. That's on there now. Now we're ready to load up our kayak. Now, the first step into loading our kayaks is we're going to loosen up our red knob, lower these down, and take our straps with the rubber ends here, pass them through the top here, and then we'll push it back up. Now, you'll see that it has this catch here so it stays where it needs to. Tighten back up the red knob, and to make sure it stays in position, we'll take the straps and lay them off to the side here. Next we'll lift our kayak into place, using the ramps to help us push it into place. We'll take the straps, just kind of drape them over the kayak like so, and then make sure I'm balanced out here pretty good. Looks to be all right. Now we can start strapping it down. With our one end here we're going to pull this so the protected end of our strap here is towards the top of the kayak. Then we'll take our other end, we're going to wrap it underneath our crossbar to the inside of the bowdown, underneath, and to the inside. You want to make sure that the strap is not going underneath like this. You want to make it go around like so. Then we'll take our other end and connect it to our buckle. I'm tying it down until it's nice and snug, and we'll repeat this for our other buckle. Next I'm going to tie off the excess here. I'll be doing this for both sides as well. Next we'll come to our bow handle here, and take our one end with a loop and a cam buckle, put that through there and pull that tight, and we'll do this for both bow and stern. Then we'll take our longer strap with the loop. We'll take our provided hook, put it through the end, and then we'll find a connection point under the front part of the vehicle to hook this to, and then we'll connect that to this end. We found our point underneath and we placed our hook through that. Then we'll bring up our strap and see how the coating here's actually going to . This plastic sheet there is going to help protect your vehicle once this is installed. Then we'll take our other end and connect it to the cam buckle we have hanging from our kayak. Place our strap through, and then we'll pull it as tight as we can. That's good there. We'll repeat this process for our rear attachment point as well. At the rear we can use our hitch tie-down point there for our hook, and we'll bring that up. There you have it for the Yakima BowDown Folding J-Style Kayak Carrier for roof racks, part number Y04042.

I am very pleased with the Yakima Bowdown and with the service that etrailer.com provided. I had received my order just a day or so before a large Yakima sale. I contacted etrailer.com and they were outstanding and applied the sale price. I really appreciated their effort and excellent customer service. Judy M. and Anna S. are excellent. I need to order new Yakima crossbars next and I will definitely be giving my business to etrailer.com 133810

Id like to know if you have a problem with the cradles falling over when you try to load your boat? My paddling buddy has this rack and it always falls over when we try to load her boat. : BTWUsing this rack with Yakima round barsthe same as depicted in these photos.

Ive used them twice now, and never had any problem with the falling over. Just make sure they are tight to start with, give them a little extra turn.

Thanks for following up with us! Glad you have gotten to use them and get out on the water.

I admit these cradles are VERY easy to install but I have been so very frustrated with them. The attachment mechanism itself doesnt seem to ever be tight enough, and really, I cant see how it ever could be since the bars are round and there is nothing to grip to make it stay upright if pushed. Eventually we get them to stay up but having them flop over is a pain because you have to get up under the kayak and lift it to get the kayak properly aligned in the cradles. The boat is heavy and we are two women who are on the short side Im 54 making it quite challenging. And my car is not that high either. Not having the cradle flop over would make car topping our kayaks a LOT easier.

Securing things around a round bar can be tricky, but this clamping does work pretty well. There are a few things that we can check that my be probable causes. Check step 3 of the instructiosn, make sure the bail is in the proper notch, middle, for round crossbars. Also, take a look at step 5 and the waffle blocks. The bail must me tightented down properly to keep the BowDown from moving on these waffle blocks. This would be my guess as to the most likely cause of problems. Check step 4 as well, make sure you are not making the loading process more difficult than it needs to be and the end of the BowDown extends a little bit beyond the cross bars. If you do not have the instructions anymore, we have them linked on this page.

  • Will the Yakima BowDown Kayak Carrier Fit on Rhino Rack Aero Crossbars
    I tested a similar product that uses the same mounting feet and hardware as the Yakima BowDown, # Y04042, on a Rhino Rack Aero Crossbar. The two parts are compatible so you can use the BowDown with Rhino Rack Aero Crossbars. In terms of it locking in a straight up position, there is no locking mechanism that uses a key to lock it in place. However it does have a ratchet type mechanism and once it is in the upright position, it will stay that way until you want to put it back down. I...

  • Can 2 Kayaks be carried Side by Side on the Roof of a 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette w/Factory Roof Rack
    The first thing you are going to want to do is check to see if two kayaks will fit side by side on the factory roof rack of your 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette. On many vehicles 2 kayaks will just not fit side by side with the available space. If you determine the factory roof rack will offer enough space for 2 kayaks side by side you could use 2 sets of the Thule DockGlide system, # TH896. The cradle style carrier will minimize the amount of space used on the factory roof rack. You...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for the Roof of a Pop-Up Camper
    First you are going to need a roof rack for your pop up camper. You can use the Swagman Roamer, # S80510 which will attach to the top of a camper as long as it is not a plastic, one-piece roof and as long as it has a flat roof. You can then use a carrier such as the stacker, # TH830, to carry both kayaks. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you.

  • How to Secure Front and Back Kayak Carrier Straps When Carrying Kayak on Roof of Vehicle
    What you could use for the rear strap (and front strap), when securing a kayak to the roof of your vehicle is the Quick Loops part # TH530. This will allow the strap to be secured with the hood or rear hatch of your vehicle. As long as you have roof weight capacity for the two of your kayaks and carriers you could use two of the # Y04042 on the roof of your vehicle. The width of this carrier is right at 20 inches so you will need to verify you have long enough crossbars.

    To answer your last question, I do have experience with this exact issue. A lot of people have run into this problem. It isn't always easy to find tie down points on a vehicle whether that vehicle is a 2015 Subaru Outback or a 1956 Rocket 88. But I have an excellent solution for you. You can use the Thule Quick Loops, # TH530. You won't have to remove any bolts, just close the cylinder under the hood (away from anything that gets hot of course!) and the other in the rear hatch.

Be sure you check the weight capacity of your vehicles roof and roof rack to ensure you do not overload your roof or roof rack.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation For 2015 Toyota RAV4 with Factory Roof Rack
    For your 2015 Toyota RAV4 with factory crossbars, I recommend the Yakima BowDown Folding J-Style Kayak Carrier # Y04042. It is fairly normal for elliptical and aero crossbars to be 3 inches wide x 1 inch thick. I spoke with my contact at Yakima about the BowDown fitting your factory, 3 inch wide crossbars. Since the BowDown is designed to fit aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars, this carrier should work well on your crossbars. You would want 2 sets of these carriers to fit 2 kayaks...

  • Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack for Transporting Kayaks on 1998 Forest River Coachman
    Any kayak transported on a vehicle or trailer must be oriented in the front-to-back direction to minimize wind drag. Any other orientation would reduce stability of the kayaks and negatively affect your mileage. I suggest you consider using a foam block type carrier such as one of those shown on the included link. The advantages of this type of carrier are their light weight, low cost, easy installation and that they avoid the expense and hassle of installing a rack that might interfere...

    The best kayak carrier that will fit the OEM factory roof rack on your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe is the Yakima BowDown Folding J-Style Kayak Carrier for Roof Racks # Y04042. The BowDown is the best because it combines ease of use with security that is second-to-none for a J-style kayak carrier.

    I checked with Yakima and the Sweet Roll part # Y04074 and the Showboat 66 part # Y04068 are both confirmed as a fit for the factory crossbars of your 2015 Subaru Outback. This setup is going to be your best solution. Assisted kayak carrier racks like this aren't cheap. To do it right unfortunately costs more than the more basic racks that require a bit more work like the part # TH834. For a factory crossbar application this is the best solution.

    There are no roof rack options for the 2014 Dodge Durango that just has side rails. But I do have a solution for you that will allow you to carry the kayak. You could use a foam block set, # RL100K10. If the rails are raised (if there is a gap between the bottoms of the rails and the roof) you could tie off the straps to the rails. For the pop-up camper you can use roof rack # S80510 which attaches directly to the top of the roof so drilling is required. The foam blocks could potentially...

  • Will Yakima BowDown Kayak Carrier Fold Down When Attached to Round Bar
    Round Yakima crossbars do behave interestingly with J-style kayak racks like the Yakima BowDown part # Y04042 that you mentioned. Since round bars have no corners kayak racks can spin on them. I've seen Yakima mention this in a positive light by saying that you can fold the racks back for better wind resistance. There is no adapter that will hold them vertical so I would recommend rotating them back after folding them down so that they don't move while you are traveling.
