Folding J-Style Kayak Carrier (S512) by Rhino-Rack®. The folding J-style carrier transports your kayak on its side to minimize width and take up less space on the cross bars, allowing other cargo or carriers to be installed on the roof rack. Made of rugged carbon steel tubing with state-of-the-art weatherproof coating and rubber tube padding to protect your boat, this carrier can be folded flat for increased roof clearance, and optional extension pieces enable the carrier to transport 2 kayaks back-to-back. The folding J-Style carrier comes with two 9.8’ padded tie-down straps to secure the boat to the carrier and two 18 ft. straps to secure the bow and stern of the boat to the vehicle. The carrier comes ready to install on Rhino-Rack Aero, OEM and most popular cross bars. A fitting kit (not included) is required for installation on Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty cross bars.

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 Folding 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 Folding J-Style Kayak 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. To preserve appearance and to resist fading and corrosion on the tough carbon steel tubing construction, 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 Folding 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.

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.

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.
