How To Secure A Kayak To The Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack


Hello, Im trying to use my yakima hullyrollers with my thule 500xt truck bars... is there an adaptor for this? Thanks

I do have a recommendation for you, however, Yakima does not make an adapter for the Yakima HullHound Kayak Saddles w/ Tie-Downs part Y04079 that will allow them to work with the Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH500XT.

In order to secure a kayak to the Xsporter crossbars, I recommend using a set of tie down straps like the Erickson Cam Buckle Tie-Down Straps part # 05605 and foam blocks like the Malone Foam Kayak Block for Truck Racks part # MPG159 as this will be your best option to secure a kayak to the Xsporter crossbars.

I have attached a review video of the tie down straps for you.
