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.
