Reviews around look (5.00 of 5)

  • Easy to assemble, easy to install, but when I put my kayaks up on top of the jeep, if the racks are in the middle kinda hard to throw them up there, I just wish it was wider, but I like them, they look good when they fold down on top of the keep, gives it a clean look and professional look, i have one kayak fall off the jeep and scratch the side of the jeep because straps got caught on each other, so watch out and maybe get different straps, but there straps did hold up really nicely for a two hour drive going 70 on the highway, 4 out of 5 stars for the price and the quality
  • I like the feel and look of the racks and having the ability to put a second kayak on the rack when we get one is a big plus
  • All in all it is a very good looking rack and works as advertised.
  • I would definitely recommend this if your looking to carry two kayaks/paddleboards

Reviews around bar (3.56 of 5)

  • However don’t expect it to fit the bars I listed earlier very well.
  • The bolts included are not the same ones pictured in the instructions, by the way, and it's very confusing as to which part goes where
  • Not that bars are _that_ important to keep in a pristine shape, but it'd be nice to keep the paint where the paint should be
  • The j-bars worked perfectly and I liked them so much I bought as second pair for our other kayaks.
  • I had to paint the underside with a rubbercoating because the metal would have scratched the aluminum cross bars on my car.

Reviews around carrier (3.37 of 5)

  • Overall we like these kayak carriers and I like being able to fold them down when they’re not in use, but if I were to purchase again I would choose 2 separate sets of folding J
  • The carriers were unable to clamp down tight enough (ran out of threads) to prevent the carriers from rolling forward as I tried to put the first kayak on the rack
  • The bolts included are not the same ones pictured in the instructions, by the way, and it's very confusing as to which part goes where
  • This kayak carrier was so easy to install and it holds kayaks/SUPs very sturdy.
  • I cut off about 3/4" from the eight bolts that secure the carrier to my Sienna's crossbar.

Reviews around video (2.18 of 5)

  • The video on the product page is helpful but it is hard to see things like which bolts go where on the clamping plate because the video runs very fast and you can't zoom in
  • Your browser does not support HTML5 video.
  • Not like one of the reviewer's video incorrectly shows.
  • The install instructions are the worst and the utube video is just as bad.
  • I found NO helpful YouTube videos either.

Reviews around bolt (1.81 of 5)

  • Also, if you have a Toyota, the bolts may be too long and damage your roof.
  • The bolts worked perfectly and I was able to use the original knobs that came with the unit as well.
  • The bolts included are not the same ones pictured in the instructions, by the way, and it's very confusing as to which part goes where
  • The worst part, the bolts that secure the unit to the brace bars on the vehicle are too long and scratch the paint off of your car
  • I found that using the mounting bolts that came with the rack to mount it on my 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser would cause the bolts to contact the top of my truck with any bounce (kayaks loaded, dirt roads)

Reviews around roof (1.69 of 5)

  • The bolts literally scratched up the roof of my car down to the metal
  • This is a good kayak roof rack for my SUV
  • Also, if you have a Toyota, the bolts may be too long and damage your roof.
  • Partially hanging off our car roof, it became difficult to handle the kayak -- scratching up the side of the car, a large gash on my husbands head, and a dent in my new kayak
