Video Transcript for Thule Roof Mounted Watersport Carriers Tie-Down Strap with Buckle Review

Hi everyone. It's Evangeline here at etrailer. And today, we'll be taking a look at our Thule replacement tie-down strap with a cam buckle here at etrailer. So, this is a new replacement strap and here on my left hand is our old strap. So, notice how over time, wear and tear has happened. It's definitely discolored.

And while not so much structural damage has happened to it, there are some frays in some areas just where it's rubbed up against some sharp edges. So, you can definitely see why you might be interested in picking up a replacement strap like this if after some time your old strap has worn down, or you lost or you damaged it. So, for dimensions, your strap is going to be one inch thick and for the length is gonna be 172 inches long. So, that's actually going to be about 14 feet and four inches long. So, this is designed for your Thule water sport carriers.

We have it on our kayak carrier right here. So, let's show how to use this with your kayak carrier as we strap down our kayak. So, with different kayak carriers, you have different install processes. But what I usually do is there's an anchor on the back of the kayak carrier, I latch it onto that anchor. Kind of like wrap it around it, then we bring it around the kayak.

And then in our case, we're gonna feed it underneath the crossbar, then cinch it together with our cam buckle. Now, once you have your kayak strapped down, you will usually have excess strap just because of how long the strap is. And it does not come with a kind of excess strap band, so I recommend just using your own rubber band to tie up your excess strap. So, my personal thoughts about our Thule strap here is I do see this working with your Thule water sport carriers. If you want something to match the one that you damage, broke or lost, this is the direct replacement.

So, that's nice to see, especially if you wanna maintain this set. Now, as for the strap itself, it's kind of a thick strap as well as a long strap, which means if you do have items that don't need as much of a tension on them. Also, since this does not have a cam buckle protector as is, you might be worried about damaging your items. I prefer the more elastic straps. I think the etrailer tie-down strap kit is a great kit, especially since the strap itself is a little bit softer and more comfortable but this still works well. Although, please get the cam buckle protector as well. And that was a look here at our Thule replacement tie-down strap with a cam buckle for your Thule water sport carriers here at etrailer..

This replacement tie-down load strap and buckle secures your canoe or kayak to your roof rack when you are using a Thule roof-mounted watersport carrier.


Worked out great now we can tie down 2 paddle board and a kayak on top of our Kona EV.


I purchased this strap as a replacement for the Thule strap I had because the quality of the strap is much better than the off the shelf brands. I'm only replacing it because I cut it too short for the kayak I currently have.


I needed to replace just one tie-down strap for my Thule watersport system but could only find the complete set elsewhere (two straps plus two buckle protectors) for considerably more money. This was exactly what I was looking for and it was priced reasonably.


The Thule straps are rugged and work great to secure kayaks and other loads to my rooftop carrier. An awesome companion is the Thule buckle protector which ensures my car's paint isn't scratched if I inadvertently drop a strap and buckle.


Thule straps are the best (the heavy blue ones). Also picked up the rubber buckle covers with this same order. Everything arrived perfectly. The prices on etrailer for these items were a bargain compared to other sources. I really wanted some additional straps but was pensive as other sources were as much as 3 times the price here.


I purchased these as extra insurance for my kayaks. I have the Thule Stacker and am looking to do two straps per boat, on either side of the Stacker. I don't wanna take any chances!


Work perfect w Thule j racks for kayaks. Super easy to use. I choose the cheapest delievery and it arrived a day early, very timely for the price. But these with confidence.


It's such a great and happy relief that I was able to replace my lost tie down and rubber cover so easily and for a good price too. I highly recommend this seller. Item arrived so quickly I didn't know. Seller gave me the heads up and it made my day to find the package in my mailbox just now.


Replacement strap for my canoe rack. Glad these fail before the rack rips off when the loose strap gets caught under the wheel after launching the canoe. Oops


Great straps!! I can tie down my kayak in 5 minutes. Highly recommend!


strong and actually slip into jam clamps unlike others I have used.


Excellent quality items arrived quickly and just as expected. Thank you as always for another great deal.

  • Best Way to Carry Long Kayak in Back of Short Bed Truck
    Since you're already wanting to utilize your truck bed for transporting your kayak I recommend picking up the Flint Hill Goods Truck Bed Extender # FHG89ZR as it allows you to secure and support the end of your kayak that hangs out the back of your truck bed. The uprights will sit 53-1/2" from center of hitch pin hole just to give you a good idea of what to expect with this extender. Just be sure to secure your kayak with a strap like part # 753-2030-02.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation For 2015 Toyota RAV4 with Factory Roof Rack
    For your 2015 Toyota RAV4 with factory crossbars, I recommend the Yakima JayLow Folding J-Style Kayak Carrier # Y04073. It is fairly normal for elliptical and aero crossbars to be 3 inches wide x 1 inch thick. I spoke with my contact at Yakima about the JayLow fitting your factory, 3 inch wide crossbars. Since the JayLow is designed to fit aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars, this carrier should work well on your crossbars. You would want 2 sets of these carriers to fit 2 kayaks...

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for a 5th Wheel Trailer Roof
    I am going to assume that the roof of your 5th wheel trailer does not have any type of roof rack on it. In that case you would need to either add one or use one of the carriers designed for a naked roof. The easiest way to go would be a carrier designed for a naked roof. The Rightline Gear Foam Kayak Block, # RL100K10, is a kit that will fit on a naked roof. With this kit, you would place the blocks on the roof, place the kayak on the blocks, and then the whole thing is held in place with...

  • Does Thule Stacker Kayak Carrier have Weight Limit
    Since the Thule The Stacker # TH830 does not carry any weight (the crossbars of the roof rack do) this carrier does not have a weight limit. The only limit this carrier has is based on the length of the kayaks. As long as the boats are 10 feet or less in length like yours this would work well. To carry 2 kayaks you will need additional tie-downs for the bow and stern like part # 853-5466, and straps like part # 753-2030-02.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation For 2010 Ford Van To Carry Canoes.
    I do not have an 80-inch crossbar that will work with your Ford Van but I do have a solution that will work for you. I recommend the Inno Roof Rack for your 2010 Ford. You would need the Feet, part # INSD and also the Inno Crossbars, part # IN436L. These square crossbars are 79 inches long and measure 7/8 x 1-1/4 inches. These crossbars have a 220-lb weight capacity. For carrying the canoes I recommend using the Malone Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam Block Style - 6" Long # MPG156....

  • Will Thule The Stacker Fit 2006 Ford Expedition Factory Crossbars And Carry 4 Kayaks
    I spoke with my contact at Thule and verified The Thule Stacker, part # TH830 will work with the factory crossbars on your 2006 Ford Expedition. For carrying 4 kayaks you would carry 2 kayaks on each side of the carrier. You would need to stand them on their side. This system comes with a pair of ratcheting tie-downs, 2 straps, and buckle protectors included. To carry 4 kayaks you may need additional tie-downs for the bow and stern like part # 853-5466, and straps like part # 753-2030-02....

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for 4 Kayaks on 2017 Jeep Patriot
    According to Thule, you can have up to 5 small kayaks on the 47 inch load bars that fit on your 2017 Jeep Patriot. For your 4 kayaks I recommend Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830. This will allow you to carry up to 4 kayaks with a max length of 10 feet on your 2017 Jeep Patriot. You will need to get additional load straps # 753-2030-02 and # 853-5466 for each additional kayak. If you want the quick draw with ratchets and strap loops, you will want # TH855XT.

  • Do Bow/Stern Tie-Downs Need To Be Attached to Hood and Rear of Vehicle To Secure Kayaks
    The Thule Stacker # TH830 is a great solution to secure a few 10 foot kayaks on their side. The carrier does include a set of tie-downs but you will need to add extra straps # TH855XT and # 753-2030-02 for all 3 of the kayaks. When actually securing the kayaks onto the roof of your CR-V I absolutely recommend attaching the ropes to the front and back ends of the vehicle. This prevents wind during travel from catching underneath the kayak and trying to lift it off the roof. Simply looping...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier For 4 Kayaks On A 2003 Dodge Caravan
    The Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830 can hold up to 4 kayaks on your 2003 Dodge Caravan factory bars as long as the weight is within the rack and roof compatibility of the manufacturer's rated system. You will need to add additional straps when using 3 or 4 kayaks. For this I recommend the Replacement Tie-Down Strap with Buckle for Thule Roof Mounted Watersport Carriers # 753-2030-02 and the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops - 13' - Qty...

  • Is a Thule Stacker 2 Appropriate to Carry 4 Kayaks on a 2011 Ford Expedition with Factory Roof Rack
    I agree that the Thule Stacker Rooftop Kayak carrier # TH830 would be the best option for carrying 4 kayaks on your 2011 Ford Expedition. Please note that this carrier is not recommended if the kayaks you intend to purchase are longer than 10 feet, and it is not intended for use with ocean style kayaks, which are much wider. I have confirmed with my technical contact at Thule and the Stacker 2 will work with factory cross bars that are up to 3 inches wide. Please note that the minimum...

  • Recommended Carrier for Transporting 4 Kayaks on 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    The Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier # MPG115MD lists a 2 kayak capacity as determined by the manufacturer. You could technically add another kayak on each side of the posts by using some additional Foam Blocks # MPG168 but this hasn't been tested so I don't recommend doing this. As you mentioned this particular carrier features a 50 pound capacity per boat anyway so it would not work for your application. Your best option is going to be with the Thule Stacker # TH830, which features the...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2008 Mini Cooper
    The Rhino-Rack Load Bars, 46 Inches # RRVA118B-2 with the Legs # RRRLKVA, and the Fit Kit # DK472 will work well to carry your kayaks on the roof of your 2008 Mini Cooper hatchback. At 96 pounds, your kayaks are within the weight capacity of the rack, however you will want to check your owner's manual to confirm the weight capacity of your Mini Cooper's roof. With the load bars being 46 inches long, you should not have any problem carrying the kayaks on their sides. The kayak carrier...

This carrier has a 350-lb weight capacity but you want to check your owner's manual to make sure you do not exceed he roof weight capacity of your truck.

  • Will Thules The Stacker Fit 2008 Nissan Xterra Factory Crossbars to Carry 2 Kayaks
    The Stacker # TH830 will fit on your 2008 Nissan Xterra, however the Thule Xadapt3 # THXADAPT3, longer installation bolts, will be needed to fit around the Xterra's factory crossbars. I spoke with my contact at Thule and he confirmed that The Stacker requires the Xadapt3 bolts for your Xterra. The Stacker # TH830 comes with the tie-downs and bow and stern straps needed to secure 1 kayak. In order to secure the second kayak, you will need some additional straps. You can use the # TH855XT...

    For a ladder rack confirmed to fit the bed of your 2003 Toyota Tundra that would work well with your tool box and would be great for carrying a single canoe the Erickson ladder rack part # EM07708 would work well. This rack has a 250 lb capacity, can be installed behind your tool box and is adjustable in width to accommodate even a wide canoe. You will also want to make sure you have straps to secure the canoe to your vehicle and to secure the bow and stern. Straps such as # 753-2030-02...

    The Thule Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830 is the best option for carrying 4 kayaks on the roof of your vehicle. This comes with straps for one kayak, so will need 3 more Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops # TH855XT (or something similar) to secure each kayak and you will also need 3 Tie-Down Strap with buckle # 753-2030-02. I do not see a way for you to safely add the SUP to the roof while the 4 kayaks are loaded as there will not be enough room and...

  • How to Transport 4 Kayaks on 2018 GMC Sierra Short Bed with Tonneau Cover
    I do have a way for you to transport your 4 kayaks with your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 but unfortunately you won't be able to add crossbars or a ladder rack system to the truck bed with the tonneau cover installed. Any truck bed crossbar system will require mounting space either on the inside of the rails or on top of them and it looks like your cover would interfere with either of these designs. Because of this your only option (if you want to keep the tonneau cover) is to go with a roof...

    It may be possible for you to carry both your kayaks and SUPs on your 2007 Hummer H2. To determine if you have enough room to carry both, you will want to take some measurements. To carry your kayaks on your 2007 Hummer H2 with factory roof rack, I recommend using Thule's The Stacker # TH830. This carrier can hold up to 4 kayaks vertically on your roof. This carrier takes up 6 inches on the crossbar. To the 6 inches of the carrier, you will want to add the depth of each kayaks hull. This...

  • Can you Carry Three Kayaks on a 2018 Honda CR-V
    The owner's manual for your 2018 Honda CR-V states that the roof load capacity for your vehicle is 165 lbs. This means that weight of the kayaks, roof rack, and carrier must not exceed the above capacity. In addition to weight restraints, you are also going to have the obviously size restriction issue. One of the only options we have to haul three kayaks on the roof of a vehicle is with the Thule Stacker part # TH830. However, it is not a guarantee that you will be able to fit all three...

  • Does Thule Stacker TH830 4-Kayak Carrier Require Additional Straps and Ropes for 4 Kayaks
    Using the Thule Stacker # TH830 multi-kayak carrier with 4 kayaks will require additional bow/stern ropes and additional straps since the carrier comes equipped with enough for one boat. Each of the 4 kayaks must have its own set of bow/stern tie-down ropes # TH855XT or something similar as well as its own straps to secure it to the Stacker, such as # 753-2030-02, or again, a similar item like # E98876-4.

These square bars are an economic option from a well known and respected brand. In order to carry two kayaks on your roof rack, I recommend Thule's The Stacker # TH830.

If you have them already, or just want to build the older style, I've included all of the replacement parts below that complete the assembly of the older style Portage....
