Secure Kayak Carrier
These are well padded and very secure for multiple types and sizes of kayaks. I don't need the folding version, because the rack bars disconnect from the landing pads on my vehicle when not hauling boats. These are very reasonably priced for the quality of the cradles and tie-down straps. I almost lost a kayak using cheap pads and straps on the cross bars. Considering the value of kayaks today, the Yakima HullRaiser is a bargain.
