Easy to install, great quality


Great look, well made




Nice, but...


Bought to replace old and corroding hullaport pros. Seemed nice, and installation straight forward. Put one on then started to place the other. No go. The ramp blocks the Outrigger release. I absolutely need the Outrigger assist bar when alone. Very sad to have to return.

The F.A.D.

OK-works with some frustrations


Purchased 2 sets as it is too difficult to reach to secure 2nd kayak in the stacker position. The integrated strap catch is a big frustration, as the opening is too wide and the strap often falls out when loading the kayaks. Would be much better if it was closed and strap was threaded through it- as it is, we are looking for a way to modifiy or remove it. When placing in the upright position, the back of the rack feels a bit loose. Appreciate how easy it was to install and lock onto cross bars.
