Pick out yourself a rock solid and reliable roof rack that will maximize your vehicle’s above roof cargo load capacity and free up space for your buddies or valuable things by allowing to secure all that stuff outside of your vehicle. With this rack, it’s easy squeezy lemon peasy to take all you want without making your vehicle’s claustrophobic. It will keep what’s in stow positioned right, preventing load shifting. So, your gear will stay safe and sound during transport, resting on your roof until you need them. This convenient rack provides easy access to the top of your automobile’s roof which makes loading and unloading a snap – just stow it up and get go.
Whether your valuable gear arrives at its destination depends upon how well it's secured. Thule provides state-of-the-art rooftop transport systems for a variety of watersports equipment, but gear like kayaks that extend out in front of and behind the roof, should also be secured properly at the bow and stern. Attachment methods like plain rope or bungee cords can loosen up, and you may not realize how loose until it's too late.
The Thule Quick Draw Ratchet System can apply just the right amount of tightness to secure your gear without damaging it. And should the rope develop some slackness during the trip, it can be made taut again with just a tug on the free end of the rope.
The Quick Draw hook can be attached directly to the boat, or use the included attachment strap for clearance and to prevent damage. Attach the other hook to underneath the bumper or at another convenient point on the undercarriage. A Thule Hood Loop Strap or Quick loop Strap can also be used as an attachment point. Once the hooks are properly attached, pull on the free end of the rope until the proper tightness is attained. When you reach your destination and you're ready to unload, just press the lever located above the ratchet spool to release the tension.
