Thanks to Thule's unique Speed-Link mounting system the SUP Taxi's carriers can be mounted quick as a flash. Just position the carriers over the load bars, and then wrap the rubber straps around the load bars until the T-ends can be placed in the pockets on the other side of the Speed-Links.

Once the SUP Taxi is mounted to your roof rack, you can quickly and easily load your paddleboards.

The dual loading feature positions the first board on the carrier, with the 2nd board directly on top, separated by a towel (not included) between the boards. When loaded, your boards are cushioned with soft, weather resistant padding for the ultimate in protection while in transit. Even the mounting straps have chafe guards to prevent damage.

If someone is intent on stealing your stuff, these straps are not going to be the ultimate protection. However, they are one more thing you can add to your security efforts to make taking your stuff a little more of a hassle and thereby less attractive than someone else's.
Don't know how I went so long without this bike rack. It's pricey but the convenience of being able to access my trunk without removing the bikes or rack made it worthwhile.
