If you're just getting started in kayaking, you may not want to lay out a lot of green, just in case you find out it's not for you; you can always upgrade later. In the meantime, these foam blocks are an affordable way to safely transport a kayak on the roof of your vehicle, even if you don't have a roof rack. The standard foam blocks attach to round and square crossbars, while the deluxe blocks fit round, square, and factory crossbars. The deluxe blocks also have super-grippy anti-skid pads on the bottom and are specially contoured so they can be used on naked roofs, to protect your vehicle and prevent your boat from sliding around. Both type blocks fit and protect most hull styles.
Along with the foam blocks, you get two 9' ladder lock straps to secure the kayak to the foam blocks. Once these are attached, position the boat on the roof and secure the kayak to your vehicle at the crossbar or through the door openings with the included heavy-duty cam strap. This strap has a rubber buckle cover to prevent damage to the boat and your vehicle. Finally, tie-down the kayak at each end with the 2 included 3-point bow and stern tie-down cam straps. 4 steel S-Hooks are provided to attach these straps to the bumper or other suitable attachment points.
When not in use, all this gear can be stowed in the included mesh storage bag. The Kayak Carrier Foam Blocks are covered by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
