Review of the Lockrack Watersport Carriers on a 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek


Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek, we're going to be test fitting the Lockrack Stand Up Paddle Board Carrier for wide stand up paddle boards, part number 339LR65SASETA. This can carry up to one stand up paddle board, and this is a universal mounting system. Right now we have it around square bars, this will also work with round, elliptical and most factory roof racks, but it also has an option to switch this to a channel mount, so it can work with those roof racks with t-slots in them as well. This is a very unique stand up paddle board carrier in that once it's installed it doesn't require any straps, or bow and stern tie-downs, or anything like that once it's installed.It'll grip your stand up paddle board at four points. We're going to have two arms at each side, and they are going to have this nice thick rubber padding to help protect the hull of your stand up paddle board where it makes contact with it. Also, at the base here, we have this rubber padding as well as this extra gripping material so once you initially install this it's not going to shift around or move around while you're pushing these into place.

Unfortunately, in this particular situation, we are not able to open up our rear hatch all the way, although we still can open it enough to get to some of the things that you may need.However, we didn't need to remove our rear antennae here at all because it didn't come in contact with our actual stand up paddle board thanks to the height of the actual carrier itself. This does have a carrying capacity of 175 pounds but always double check with your vehicles manual as well as your roof rack system to make sure it can take those weights. Since this does open up from either the driver's or passenger's side you can have this either more towards one, or the other depending on where you're loading things from, and if you have a little bit longer bars on each side you could potentially fit an additional bike rack or something on the other side once everything's done.Once these are pushed into place they are locked into place, meaning I can't remove these at all without the use of a key. This does come with four of them, and on the ends, it does have this connection point here where you can put it on your keychain if need be. It's very easy to use, just simply slide it into position like so and you turn it to the side to unlock it and that's how you remove the arms, and then we can remove our stand up paddle board, very carefully, as this one is not mine.

Set this off to the side here. And you can see better how this attaches to our square bars here. We have two screws on each side, and they do come with the required or necessary Allen tool to tighten or loosen those. Also, once your actual stand up paddle board is removed, this can actually fold flat by pushing the arms in like so, and we'll do this on both sides, and this is the stored position once you keep it on your roof.The carrier itself weighs only 17 pounds, so it's very nice and lightweight, and easy to install, and it's made from an aluminum, so it's going to be corrosion resistant once it's installed as well. And there you have it for the Lockrack Stand Up Paddle Board Carrier for wide stand up paddle boards on our 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek..
