Securing the Bow of a Kayak or Canoe on a Ford Edge


I noticed on my Edge that the only place to secure the front tie down is under the hood. Is this a common use for the system and is it safe?


Helpful Expert Reply:

Securing the front tie down for a kayak or canoe under the hood is common. Thule offers the Hood Loops, # TH529, and Quick Loops, # TH530, so you do not have to attach the hook directly to the edge of the hood. I would strongly recommend using these products. You can also use them for your rear hatch if you do not have a strong attachment point for the stern tie down.

I have attached a demonstration video for you to check out.
