We've all been in difficult physical situations where we felt that it would be easier to accomplish something if we just had another hand. Loading a kayak onto a roof rack may be those circumstances for you. If so, Thule offers an extra hand in the form of the Outrigger II Load-Assist accessory. The Outrigger II fits inside the load bar of your roof rack. When you're ready to load your kayak, just extend the Outrigger II arm. It acts just like a helping hand, supporting one end of the kayak and up to 50% of its weight, while you lift the other end onto the roof. The Outrigger II continues to hold the end of your boat until you lift it off onto the roof rack. Once your kayak is in place, retract the arm into the load bar until it's needed again.
The Outrigger II has an integrated load stop to keep the boat from slipping off the bar while loading. It can hold just about every kayak shape and size and works with kayaks up to 75 lbs. The Outrigger II Load-Assist fits Thule square load bar rack systems only. It 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.66.95Brand: Thule Part Number: 847 UPC: 091021847170

Wish I had gotten the longer unit. Now my crossbars are too close together to fit the canoe. Haven't used the unit yet. But it seems to ride on the car nicely. The lid feels somewhat flimsy.

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?

I bought this Traverse fit kit for my 2013 Ford Escape. It fits perfectly, looks good, and does what it's supposed to do. CARiD shipped the items quickly and for free!Was this review helpful for you?

I put these on my 2014 Forester. They fit well, and the installation was easy. When you buy a pair, they are sold as a front and rear pair, but the difference is not distinguishable and nothing on the package or in the enclosed instructions made note of this. I haven't noticed any increased noise, and I often drive with the roof open, so I think the aeroblade is a smart design. As far as roof racks go, they look nice and look like they will last a long time.Was this review helpful for you?

Very nice appearance. I have never put on a roof carrier before. It was a little confusing, but I figured it out, and it went on very smooth and looks great.Was this review helpful for you?
