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 3-year warranty to the original purchaser against defects in materials and workmanship.
