How to Transport Kayaks with Thule TracRac TracOne Ladder Rack


Where are the kayak pads that fit the tracrac? Ive seen them on videos but they were a couple years old. I like the tracrac system but if i cant get different accessories that slide into the groove then ill need to look for another rack.

Because of the size of the crossbars on the Thule TracRac TracOne Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH27000XTB that you referenced, most standard kayak carriers will not work.

To transport kayaks with this system, I recommend using the Thule Surf Pad # TH845000. This split-bottom pad will simply wrap around the crossbars to provide soft pads for your kayaks to rest on. You can then add the Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes # TH855XT to safely secure the kayaks to your truck.

I have attached a couple short video demonstrations on these products that you can also take a look at.
