Accessories for Thule Compass

Thule QuickDraw

Secure your boat's bow and stern quickly and easily. A simple ratchet system lets you do away with bungee cords and time-consuming knots.




Really enjoy using this product on my car! Unlike the normal j hooks that are used for kayaks, you can collapse them when not in use.

Worked great to transport two 14 foot Necky Manitou kayaks!




Great product, highly recommended


We own a 2016 two door Jeep Wrangler Sport and was looking for a way to carry two Kayaks on top. A Thule representative was very helpful. My setup is the Thule Rapid Gutter Foot Pack, Thule WingBar Evo 150 and Thule Compass carrier. I also purchased four "hood loops", under the hood and rear door, to secure the kayak stern and bow with additional straps. We drove 125 miles to a local river and it handled great. Coming home we towed the Jeep with kayaks behind our Winnebago motorhome and again absolutely no issues. So far we love these products! We'll know even better after a four week trip from SoCal to Montana.
