We received the bow-stern lines for our jlow kayak rack faster than the 2 days promised and they work perfectly.
Thanks to the etrailer folks for their great service and helpful videos. This our third purchase from etrailer and we couldn’t be more pleased. Thanks etrailer!

Easy to use and good quality.

Holds
the kayaks in place at freeway speeds.




by:

Great product for securing the front and rear of a kayak. Once assembled its quick and easy to use. The ratchet holds the line taut without loosening. Just give a tug on the line to test tightness during a trip. I did need a refresher on how to tie a bowline knot. My boy scout days have long been over. Would buy again.




by:

I have ordered several products from Etrailer over the past few months-a Yakima roof rack; ski rack; kayak rack and accessories. Every product has been shipped and delivered promptly along with constant communication about timelines. I also find Etrailer has excellent videos and instructions/questions and answers about product specifications and installation. Very pleased.

    The tie down straps in the Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops - 1/4" x 12' - 150 lbs - Qty 2 # Y04031 are 12 feet long.

  • Best Folding Kayak Carrier for Roof Rack With Small Amount of Clearance From Roof
    We have the perfect folding kayak carrier for your 2020 Honda CR-V with crossbars that have a small amount of clearance from your roof, the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. The reason the JayLow is the best is because it actually clamps to the side of your roof rack's crossbars so the fact you have clearance issues won't come into play with this particular carrier. I have added a photo which shows you how these clamp. The JayLow can carry one kayak in its J-style or two kayaks if...

  • How To Carry Two Kayaks On a 2007 Toyota RAV4 With Factory Roof Rack
    The factory roof rack on a 2007 Toyota Rav 4 is capable of holding up to 100 lbs so you would be absolutely fine using this to carry two kayaks. If you like, you can upgrade to aftermarket crossbars but that doesn't mean the roof weight capacity increases as the crossbars themselves are just one of the many factors that go into determining roof weight capacity. In order to carry two kayaks you will need to use a j-style carrier due to the limited space with a factory roof rack but this...

  • J-Style Kayak Carrier Compatible w/ Yakima HD Roof Rack Crossbars
    Because the Yakima HD have the accessory slot in the top of the rail, and the crossbar is 3 x 1 inches, it'll be compatible with J-Style kayak carriers that either mount using the slot or clamp around the crossbar. The Yakima JayLow kayak carrier you've looked at, part # Y04073 will work with crossbars up to 3-1/2 x 1-11/16 inches, so it'll work perfectly with the Yakima HD crossbars. This rack will allow you to carry up to 2 kayaks, but for 2 kayaks, you'll need an extra # Y04031 strap...

  • 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.

  • Solution for Carrying Three Kayaks on Roof of 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe
    I recommend getting two of the Yakima JayLow kayak carrier, part # Y04073. It's confirmed, by Yakima, to fit the factory roof rack of your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe. The JayLow can handle up to two kayaks so you need two carriers for all three of them. It includes tie-downs for one boat so you'll need a couple extra sets. Use part # Y04031.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for 2 Kayaks on the Roof of a 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser
    To carry two 10 foot kayaks on the roof rack of your 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073, is a great option. The JayLow holds the kayaks on their sides. It includes straps to secure them to the FJ's cross bars as well as at the bow and stern. Also add part # Y04031 for the straps to secure the second kayak.

  • Kayak Carrier for a 2019 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack
    I'm sure we're going to have kayak carriers that fit the factory crossbars on your 2019 Toyota Highlander but nothing is confirmed at this time. A very common and likely fit for you is the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073. The JayLow is great for two kayaks because it's a J-style for one but can be converted to a Post-style for two. It can also be folded down when not in use. You will need extra tie-downs for the second boat. Use part # Y04031. To lock the JayLow to the crossbars use...

  • Can One J-Style and One Saddle Style Kayak Carrier Be Used On 2014 Subaru Outback
    In order to carry two kayaks on a 2014 Subaru Outback you'll need to carry them both on their side, the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier part # Y04073 would actually allow you to carry both with only one set of cradles. I would however add the Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes part # Y04031 and Yakima Cinch Straps part # Y05006 since you are carrying two boats as the above only comes with enough tie-downs for one. The Yakima SweetRoll Kayak Carrier would not be a good option even for one of the...

  • Roof Cargo Basket and 2 Kayak Carrier to Fit 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
    For a roof mounted kayak carrier great for carrying 1 or 2 kayaks we have the Yakima JayLow part # Y04073 which is a J-style kayak that can be locked vertical to allow two to fit as well. Check out the attached review video for more info. When carrying the second kayak you'd need a second set of straps. So for that you'd want to use the part # Y04031 and you'd be set. To fit a basket with the two kayaks you'd most likely need a skinnier basket like the Yakima SkinnyWarrior Roof Basket...

    The Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # Y04073 will absolutely work on your 2011 Ford Explorer to carry a pair of 12 foot kayaks. The only other thing you need are the Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops # Y04031 to secure your second kayak and I also recommend adding the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07202 because they allow you to lock the JayLow to your roof rack and help protect the investment you made in the carrier.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for 2 Kayaks on 2017 Kia Sportage
    To safely secure your two kayaks for transport on the roof of your 2017 Kia Sportage, I recommend taking a look at the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. This J-style carrier will mount to the factory crossbars on your vehicle and can secure 1 kayak in the J-style position or both of your kayaks at the same time in vertical position. The built-in ramps make it easy to load up the kayak from the side of your Sportage, while the padded bases and arms cushion the kayak and protect the hull...

This product is made to fit with factory racks and crossbars. This carrier will allow you to carry 1 kayak in the J-style position or 2 kayaks in the vertical position. The integrated ramps help you to load a kayak from the side of your vehicle. The padded arms fold down when not in use. This product is a tool-free...

  • Recommendation for Transporting 2 Kayaks on 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon with Factory Roof Rack
    The Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073 referenced in your question will work great for transporting your kayaks as long as the factory crossbars on your Subaru Outback Wagon are not wider than 3-1/2 inches or taller than 1-11/16 inches. There should also be a minimum crossbar spread (distance between the two crossbars) of 24 inches. You will have no issue mounting both of your kayaks with this system. You can actually safely secure both of your kayaks using just one of these systems,...

  • Can a 2012 Chevy Equinox with Factory Roof Rack Carry 2 Kayaks
    I checked a couple of different resources and it looks like the factory roof rack and crossbars on a 2012 Chevy Equinox are rated for 150 pounds. But you will want to check the vehicle owners manual and/or Chevy to confirm that number. If it is 150 pounds you should be able to carry 2 kayaks on J-style carriers easily. The Yakima JayLow, # Y04073, is listed as a direct fit for your vehicle. You can use this carrier for 2 kayaks, one will sit on the cradles and one will need to be strapped...

  • Is Yakima EasyTop Universal Fit Roof Rack Compatible With A 2014 Porsche Cayenne With Naked Roof?
    Yes, the Yakima EasyTop Universal Fit Roof Rack - Padded - 80 lbs # Y07418 will work well on the roof of your 2014 Porsche Cayenne. It is a very simple and affordable system that can be used to haul kayaks, canoes, ladders, or other long items than cannot fit in the vehicle. The weight capacity is 80lbs and the maximum load dimensions are 14 feet long and 3 feet wide. Straps are included, but you may end up needing to use Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops - 1/4"...

  • Compatibility with a 2010 Toyota Highlander factory roof rack
    Judging by the photos, you do have elliptical crossbars on the vehicle. Since the maximum measurements of the cross-section of the bars is 3-1/2 inches wide and 1-11/16 inches thick, you will be good to go with tying down the kayaks directly to the kayak carrier. If the length between the crossbars is 41 inches, you will be good with the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # Y04073 since the minimum length for the rack is 24 inches apart. If you add a second boat, you will need additional...

  • How Fast Can I Drive With Kayaks Loaded on Roof?
    Yes! Make sure to have the bow and stern tie-downs included with the Yakima JayLow # Y04073 properly secured to the front and rear of your vehicle and you're good to go! If you're carrying a second kayak, you will need another set of bow/stern ropes # Y04031 and cam buckle straps # Y05006. One thing to note is that Yakima recommends a maximum speed limit of 80mph with your kayaks loaded up.

  • What Accessory Can I Use to Transport My Two Vibe Sea Ghost Kayaks on My 2016 Jeep Patriot?
    For an accessory that will allow you to secure and transport your two Vibe Sea Ghost kayaks, I recommend the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. The JayLow will fit your factory crossbars on your 2016 Jeep Patriot if they measure less than 3-1/2 inches wide and 1-11/16 inches tall. The JayLow is a great option because it has built-in ramps that help you load the cradles from the side of your vehicle. You can also add extra security to the JayLow with the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock...

For a confirmation of whether this will fit, I recommend measuring the crossbars on your vehicle for these dimensions. For a second kayak, you will need the Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops - 1/4" x 12' - 150 lbs - Qty 2 # Y04031. If you want to make sure no one...

  • Will the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier Fit My Factory Crossbars on My 2020 Toyota 4Runner?
    I apologize for the conflicting information. Since I do not know the exact dimensions of the factory crossbars on your 2020 4Runner, I recommend measuring the height and width of your crossbars. If the measurements do not exceed 3-1/2" wide x 1-11/16" tall, the Yakima JayLow # Y04073 will fit your setup. To add extra theft-deterrence to your JayLow, I recommend the Yakima Same-Key Lock System # Y07202. Also, if you are going to transport a second boat, you need an additional set of Yakima...

    While there is definitely a way to measure to confirm if the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073 fits your factory crossbars on your 2015 Toyota Sienna, we unfortunately do not have access to the exact specs of your bars. With that being said, as long as your crossbars do not exceed 3-1/2" wide x 1-11/16" long, the # Y04073 fits your crossbars. I recommend measuring the width and height of your bars to make sure. It is also important to make sure that you have at least 24" inches of crossbar...
