Video Transcript for Review of Exposed Racks - Y-Style Offset Mount Kayak and Paddleboard Carrier Kit - ER78VR

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at these Y style kayak and paddle board carrier kit for the exposed racks multi-function crossbars. These are the offset mount design and it is for quantity of two carriers.Now, these Y style carriers let you mount and transport your kayak or your paddle board on the roof of your vehicle. These can be secured to any of the square holes on your exposed racks multi-function crossbar. The Y style kayak mounts are used to carry a kayak on top of the vehicle with the bottom of the kayak facing down. You see these have the nice foam padded bars to protect the hall from abresions and scratches.

And this is an extremely strong system. It works really well for any of the larger heavier kayaks that'll benefit from being loaded on by putting the bow of the kayak on the rear mount and then pushing it and sliding the kayak forward up onto the roof as kayaks are made this slide with the bottom down.So with these Y style mounts, it might be easier in some circumstances to temporarily remove this foam padding. And when you do that, it allow for a nice smoother ride of the kayak and the kayak itself we'll find a slight groove right here in the Y mount and then center itself, allowing for a nice easier load. And then if you want to put the padding back on, it's pretty easy. Just lined it up, start it on, and then just push it as you go all the way down.

It'll install onto the bar, just like that.Now these Y mounts will also work very well with the stand-up paddle boards and the surf boards and for those lighter items which are often made of fiberglass, it's usually easier and better to leave the foam on the mounds and then simply place the boards on top. The slight bend and the Y mount combined with the contouring foam will allow just about any board to sit nicely with the bottom down. And I mentioned, these are an offset mount design you can see. They are designed for the offset design crossbar and that crossbar has the holes on it that are both 12 inches apart in the middle and then six inches apart on the end. That's what they described as the offset crossbar.So what I want to do is show you one of those.

Here's the exposed rack multi-function crossbar that has the square holes in it. And if you notice the holes in the middle are going to measure 12 inches apart center to center. But if you go to the end, you'll notice that the ones on the end are six inches apart. So they have the offset design crossbar. Now they also offer, we do sell separately, this is the center mount design carrier.

You can see where the bars are, the thins right here in the center. That's the center mount design, we do sell those separately. These we're talking about today are going to be the offset mount and you can see the pin is on to an offset.So basically you can click into any of the holes on the crossbar. However, with the offset design, what's nice is if you use the outermost hole on the crossbar, you can carry the kayak or the board past the edge of the crossbars and that allow for the center of the bars to be used, frees it up for any other items that be mounted on your roof.So again, just to show you how they install, you just lined it up into the square hole and then just push down on that pin and it'll go all the way in. And if you notice when I've installed it on the outside, see how much farther it extends over the bar. So you can carry your kayak or paddleboard like that and then have the inside space for others. If you don't want to do that, you can just remove it. And it's very quick, easy to remove, and you can slide it to whatever hole you want, push your pin back in and it'll install just like that. So it's very easy to put, remove and install wherever you need it to be.That push pin system allows for nice, easy one-handed installation. If you notice on the bottom here, it has this nice silicone washer that when you do install it into the crossbar, it'll create a nice snug fit. And as I mentioned, it's a quick mounting and removal makes it very easy to swap out your accessories on the crossbar. Now, this is a heavy duty carbon steel construction. They used a black powder coat to finish on it to resist corrosion. This kit does include the two carriers but it also includes two nine foot long boat straps for securing your watercraft to those carriers and to the crossbars. These parts are made in the USA.Last thing we'll do is just give you some dimensions on those. The overall length go from one end all the way to the other is 31 and three eights inches long. The overall height going to be six and a half inches but now you do need to remember when this installs in the crossbar, it's about two inches it goes in. So once it's installed, it's about four and a half inches tall. And then the last measurement is going to be the depth or diameters right at two and a half inches.But that should do it for the review on the Y style kayak and paddleboard carrier kit for the exposed racks multi-function crossbars. This is the offset mount design for a quantity of two..
