    While I prefer the rugged stability of our Thule kayak stacker on the SUV, I tried this solution for my Toyota Echo when the SUV is away and I want to slip my 11 ft rec kayak into nearby water. In my first two ventures, it does exactly that. I put the foam pads toward the front and back of the roof, as the middle of the Echo roof is spongy. I put the straps through the open doors, secured them, and then closed the doors -- so the straps don't vibrate as they do if you simply open the windows to thread them through. It feels stable at 45 mph on our Vermont roads. Up on the interstate, it felt okay at 55mph and I was ok with 60mph, and opted not to go to 65mph -- but that may be due to the nature of the Echo as much as the nature of this solution for your vehicle. It likely won't last forever (though the straps seem to be very good quality), but for a cheap and easy way to get one kayak to water, it works.

    I have a 30 pound, 8' kayak that I have used this system to transport atop my Nissan Versa Note. My kayak has two indentations on its underside, which is where I place the foam blocks to minimize movement. When I tighten the straps, I can still wiggle the kayak a little, but it seems pretty secure overall. After driving to my destination, there does not appear to have been any movement. This was surprising the first few times, as the amount of noise certainly suggested otherwise. It sounded like a gorilla and a very large raccoon were wrestling one another while also trying to make wolf sounds. Everyone knows gorillas and raccoons are famously bad at impersonating wolves. Anyway, the horrific sounds prevented me from attempting to drive faster than 45 miles per hour. At lower speeds, however, I feel pretty confident transporting my kayak with this system. As others have said, it can be challenging to set this up without a second person to help. The roof of my car is relatively flat, and I think cars with a more rounded roof (such as a VW Beetle) may be less conducive to this system. I like the straps and have found them to be pretty sturdy. I just use random Baltimore knots on the front and back ropes, and they hold pretty well. My advice: Make sure the straps aren't twisted. Biggest pro: It's cost effective Biggest con: It creates an absurd and unnerving amount of noise while the car is in motion. Should you buy it? Hey, if you want to.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    The straps that are included in this set are absolutely useless. I wouldn't dare drive down the road with those things that are supposed to secure the kayak. However, you're not going to find a pair of foam blocks alone cheaper then this whole set. So, use the blocks and do yourself a favor and buy a set of ratcheting straps.

    Terrible straps

    The two straps aren't strong enough to stay tighten. I tighten it and it would loosen up...couldn't hold it. This is a very cheap kit and you're better off buying foam blocks separately at bass pro shop or some other outdoor store with some ratchet straps and hooks for the bow and stern. I couldn't secure my kayak on my car with this kit.

    Not sure if this is all I need to secure a kayak to my roof top. Is there anything more that I would need?

    • A. Not really...I used it on top a 06 Grand Cherokee without one and same with my 97 Wrangler. Of course I used a pad between it and the kayak so it wouldn't scratch the roof, but it's light enough to not need a mounted carrier.
