Outdoor sports can be an expensive form of recreation, especially watersports where you have the high cost of the kayak, along with all the necessary related equipment. Why pay more than you need to just to transport your boat to the water? SportRack has simple and uncomplicated, easy to load carriers that will get your craft to the water and back home again, on the roof of your vehicle, without stretching your wallet.
The basic building blocks for this carrier are the 2 durable 16” closed cell foam support blocks. These blocks are strong and solid enough to provide support for your kayak, but won’t damage the vehicle or kayak finish. The roof side has a non-skid surface to prevent movement when used on a bare roof, plus the blocks are also cut out for use on Thule, SportRack, round, and factory racks.
Once in position, the kayak is secured to the roof with sturdy polypropylene straps with chromate buckles. The straps are positioned over the kayak and then run through the tops of the door openings so they can be secured inside the vehicle. For stability, specially designed straps, along with hooks, are provided to tie the bow and stern of the kayak to the front and rear of the vehicle.
The SportRack Deluxe 16” Kayak Carrier comes with instructions detailing how to mount the carrier and kayak on your vehicle. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer’s defects in materials or workmanship.39.31Brand: SportRack Part Number: SR5526 UPC: 770527906115

The product was very good quality, just wasn't what I needed. Be careful when buying a universal cargo box as this product did not fit the Thule cross bar system installed on a Mazda CX-9! Returned to CARiD which was an easy process. Thanks.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
