Conventional Kayak carriers transport the boat on its top or bottom, which doesn’t leave much room on the cross bars for anything else. If you want to take along another kayak or additional gear on your trip, you’re going to have to find another way of carrying it. The J-Style Carrier is the solution to the space problem. This carrier transports the boat on its side, which leaves plenty of space on your cross bars for cargo or another kayak.
The J-Style Kayak Carrier is available in a fixed or folding version. The folding carrier can be folded flat for additional roof clearance, so you probably won’t have to remove it when you’re in a parking garage. With the addition of the optional extension pieces, the folding carrier can also be set up to carry 2 kayaks back-to-back. Both carriers are constructed from tough carbon steel tubing. To preserve appearance and to resist fading and corrosion, Rhino-Rack applies a state-of-the-art coating for protection. Rubber tube pads are included to cushion and protect your kayak’s finish. Once your boat is loaded, use the 2 included 9.9’ padded tie-down straps to secure the craft to the carrier, and the 2 included 18’ tie-down straps to secure the bow and stern of the boat to the vehicle.
Stainless steel security hardware and clamps are included to attach the J-Style cradles to Rhino-Rack Aero cross bars, factory cross bars, and most popular aftermarket cross bar shapes, and a security hex key is included. If your vehicle has Rhino-Rack H/D cross bars, an optional fitting kit is needed for installation. The J-Style Kayak Carrier comes with detailed, illustrated installation instructions, and it’s backed by a limited 2-year warranty to the original purchaser against defects in materials and workmanship.111.20 159.20

I am super impressed with this kayak carrier. I feel absolutely reassured when my kayak is secured now. This carrier is super easy to install on my luggage rack and load my kayak on. I would definitely recommend this product. The delivery was quick as well.Was this review helpful for you?

This is a great product. I like the folding style to allow for a cleaner look. This product is great quality, and very easy to install. No tools required. This product comes with straps as well so you have everything you need in one box ready to hit the road with your kayaks. The price is a little higher than other products but the quality and ease is worth the extra cost. I purchased the Rhino-Rack Folding J-Style Carrier and the expansion carrier. I still have room on the top of my FJ cruiser and I intend to buy another set. Great products.Was this review helpful for you?

Title sums it up - this is a nice little multipurpose holder. Quality materials, simple yet sturdy design. Only con is that it is a bit pricey for what it is. CARiD has by far the best price!Was this review helpful for you? YesNoShare this review:(4.8)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY2013 Mercedes E class

Very easy to install. The only thing was that the bolts to mount were not long enough for the roof rack that I bought, but I think it was because I got the heavy duty cross bar racks from Rhino that are much thicker than the normal ones. But just had to change them out, no big deal. Still a great product.1 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you? YesNoShare this review:
