Thule created these saddles to provide your kayak with the best combination of protection and stability. The soft, form fitting material cushions the hull, while at the same time gripping the surface to prevent movement. And they're adjustable, to ensure maximum hull contact. These saddles are sold in sets of 2, so you can set up your roof rack just the way you want it. If you want maximum security and protection, order another set. But if you want to couple that security with easy loading, then mount your Set-to-Go saddles on the front rack load bar and order a set of Thule Hydro-Glide saddles for the rear rack load bar. The low friction properties of the Hydro-Glide's felt lining allows you to slide your kayak, making loading and unloading easier.
With the Set-to-Go saddles, one person can load and unload a kayak up to 34" wide and 75 lbs. It includes 1 load strap with the patented buckle bumper, to protect the surface of the kayak and your vehicle, and 1 ratcheting bow/stern rope. The Set-to-Go can be easily mounted to Thule rack systems, round bars and most factory racks without using any tools.
The Set-to-Go Kayak Rack comes with everything necessary for installation, including detailed instructions. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.78.95Brand: Thule Part Number: 878XT UPC: 091021878570

I purchased this, because I use Thule racks on my old Jeep. These feet were very easy to install. So easy that I am going to order the lock set for them, because they can be removed just as easy. Great product, and CARiD had them to me in 4 days.Was this review helpful for you?
