The Rhino Rack cradles, straps and hardware are all good quality and I have no complaints. The only issue I have, and the reason for only a 4 star rating, is the supplied M6 x 40mm Security Head screws are too long for the factory cross bars on my roof rack. When I first installed the cradles if I had tightened the screws all the way, the ends would have dug into the roof and paint, even before I added the weight of the kayak. In checking, I can purchase some M6 x 25mm Security Head screws from Amazon, but frankly part of me feels that for what I’ve already paid for this kit I shouldn’t have to spend another $15 for the correct length screws, plus the package has 20 screws and I only need 8. However, it appears that is exactly what I will have to do. At least they will be stainless steel, rather than the cheaper material the current screws are. Plus I will have extras for when/if the head strips out. I would suggest Rhino Rack consider included in their kit two sets of screws to meet this need. Keep the length they have, Judy add a set of 25mm. I’m still happy with the purchase but not 100%. I do like how the kayak slides easily on the rear felt lined cradles. Plus Rhino Rack includes every tie down strap that you will need, e.g. one each for the bow and stern in addition to two straps intended to secure the kayak directly to the roof rack cross bars. I would highly suggest you get in the habit of using all four straps, you really don’t need to have a gust of wind lifting the nose and tearing the roof rack off your vehicle. Can happen! My brother-in-law lost his roof rack exactly in this manner. So happy yakking and safe travels down the road. By the way I have paired these cradles with the Rhino Rack RTL002 T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist and Support Bar for 2” Hitches also purchased from eTrailer. I’ve attached some photos showing my first and second attempts to solve my dilemma. I need to order the replacement screws. First attempt after dark was a large flat washer, then the next day I added some nuts under the large washer. NOTE: Photos may post in reverse order.

Continues to exceed expectations.

Love my Rhino Rack. Installed myself without complication. Thank you etrailer for great product with the best price!

Thanks for the review Larry. If you dont already have some dont forget to secure the bow and stern of you kayak, as mentioned in Rhino Racks installation instructions. My coworker highly recommends both the Malone SpeedLine Mini Ratchet Tie-Downs MPG309 and the Malone Quick Lash hood loops # MPG308

While I thought screwing in the bolts with the allen key were a PIA as stated on reviews that I read (surely something better can be devised!) I love the end product. I am 68 and have a carbon lite kayak that weighs about 40 lbs. I chose the use a rear mounting since lifting into a J-Channel is out of the question. I put a rubber backed rug on the back of my SUV and put the front of the kayak on that and then go to the back and lift and slide. The straps are easy to secure and I like the little velcro to hold on to the excess. Even though the directions pictured the mounts over the driver's side, I chose to put the mounts over the passenger side, that way The strap is not in my view and if I need to stop to adjust something, I am not on the road!!!! I also got the anchor strap that goes under the front hood since I don't have a great place in the front of the SUV to hook on to.

We purchased two sets of these for securing our kayaks to our truck rack so we could tow our travel trailer, fill the truck bed with bikes and still bring the kayaks. They work well once you get them positioned correctly - photo shows one kayak with carriers in place and second kayak waiting for carriers. Our challenge with install is that the kayaks are tow different lengths so carriers are not set the same way. Getting them loaded and unloaded is a two person job, but strapping down is easy and very secure.

- RR571

I don't use it as often as I would like but after a year it is still attached and works as intended. The rubber strips to reduce noise came partially loose, but with some fiddling they seem to be hanging in there now. For my vehicle at least, I used a professional (local auto shop) to install as I was not going to take a drill to my car.

- RR571

Great product, great value and easy installation on my OEM racks for my 2011 Santa Fe GL. Like a few other reviewers, I provision of shorter bolts would be a good idea. I ordered the shorter bolts online and made the suggested swap as well. IMO, This is the Only thing that keeps this product from being a home run. The Saddles seem to be rugged and straps are of phenomenal quality. The email link keeps you well informed on shipping, which only took several days for my order.

A secure, simple and functional kayak carrier. It is just what I was looking for. I wanted one that had the sliding function on the rear pair so I can load my boats from the back of my van. And I wanted a flexible/adjustable triangular shaped carrier for the front two carriers. I love how all 4 carriers are self- adjusting to fit the shape of different kayaks. The carriers attach securely to my Thule square rack and do NOT slide around on my Thule square rack at all. The straps that come with the kit are wonderful. One set has padded buckles, PERFECT! And the other set is great for the front/back ties downs. I like that the Rhino Rack has the added thief-deterrence of a special wrench that must be used to attach/detach the carriers from the car-top rack-a very clever idea. I am glad I purchased this product and look forward to years of service from it.

Hello Rhino Rack Company, I still LOVE the kayak carrying racks that I reviewed above. I am using them a lot and find them to work extremely well. They remain a safe, secure and easy solution for my kayak-carrying needs. I have recommended them to others over a brand that I had previously. Well built and well designed. Thank you so much for inquiring about my long-term satisfaction. I would highly recommend your product. And thanks for the spare wrench key that you sent after I asked for one to replace my lost one.

Works great once you get it installed. Probably took an hour to get all 4 pads adjusted to fit my Hobie Mirage Oasis Tandem. Used it many times and it works like a charm. I can slide my yak up and get it back down by my myself in just a few minutes.

I got a Vibe SeaGhost 130 kayak a year ago and needed a rack and and cradle for my 2010 CRV. I settled on the Rhino Rack RSP15 Rhino Sportz rack and paired it with the Rhino Rack NauticSeries 571 cradles. Satisfied with both products. I also purchased the Seattle Sports Sherpack roller from (I think it was) Academy Sports. This nifty roller attaches to the rear window via suction cups and greatly eases (at least for this 65yo) getting the kayak on and off. When putting the kayak on, it's a rather short push up to where the yak is on the rear cradles and, because of the rear cradles' felt lining, I can slide the kayak the rest of the way fairly effortlessly. If I'm not going to be taking the kayak out for a couple of days or so, I remove the rack and use the provided covers for the roof anchor points.

I’m not so thrilled with this. The sit in kayaks don’t really fit in the cradle. So, I would have chosen another complete system rather than Rhino.

- RR571

the security screws are hard to work with. the brackets slide unless very tight, its plastic rail to plastic bracket - this needs some rubber or silcon (would last longer) or something to make it less likely to move. wind up constantly adjusting for each trip, and with the tool and security screws not something you want to do with the sun pounding down on you. not saying you should do this but I'm going to have to modify these with some silicon material and easier bolts. security wise I'm not too concerned about someone going up and taking them. if they need the money that bad then glad they took that instead of hurting someone for it. also, should add was missing parts. the parts I got did not match... (washer). I had to go to store and buy a bag. No big deal, but did not want to have to run out at last second. good luck.

Bought my kayak carrier and roof rack a year ago for my 2016 Infiniti Q50, and it is still performing beautifully. I reinstalled it after removing it for the winter and it was back on in no time. The fit of the rack on to my car and the kayak carrier with my kayak is perfect.

I have not tried the kayak carrier and tie downs yet as my kayak has not yet arrived, but the support from the sales and service staff at etrailer has been really great. When my side mount carrier was delayed they constantly updated me on status and time estimates from the manufacturer. When I decided to switch to the rear loading model Montrell understood exactly how to switch my order to the rear loading version and got it delivered in record time.

- RR571

The felt pads make loading/unloading a breeze! I have it installed on my 2018 Honda Pilot and use it to haul an Ocean Kayak Malibu 2 XL. Unlike many rooftop accessories, there is no whistle or obnoxious vibration (with or without a boat). Slick setup!

Two sets just arrived and I just opened the box. Got here much earlier than I expected and looks exactly like what I wanted. I'll be using these to transport 2 Kayaks from Pennsylvania to Florida for the month of February. I'll update this post on how well they worked when I get back. [UPDATE 03/02/17] Sent you a review upon receipt of the Rino Racks and promised a follow up after I used them. Just got back from a vacation in Florida, so here goes... Took two recreational kayaks from Pennsylvania to Florida and back using the Rino Racks on Rage crossbars. The factory crossbars were not wide enough to carry two kayaks side-by-side. Note that I have used "J" racks but carrying the boats flat is much better in the wind, is easier to load and lets me load "in" the garage. The Rino Racks worked really well. The racks need to be tightened down hard to keep from sliding on the crossbar. The bolts are rather unique using an allen slot with a hole in the center. A wrench with a corresponding hole is provided. I didn't use the straps that were included but they looked really sturdy. Also recommend rope front and rear tie downs instead of straps - the straps hum unless you twist them. The racks are a good value and I would recommend them. Dave

- RR571

Fits well on my CR-V. Holds my Kayak steady on long trips. Easy to install.

- RR571

Use these carriers for a tandem kayak. They make it easy for me to load kayak by myself and the tie down straps are extremely durable, easy to use and keep boat extremely secure. Still very happy with product after one year of use.

- RR571

The kayak holders were exactly as advertised and fit my pickup perfectly. I'm using these with the rhino racks for a naked roof on my Chevy Silverado.

- RR571

Great company to work with. Excellent support and advice is given. I have purchased more items form etrailer because they are so good. I highly recommend them.

- RR571

I use the rhino roof rack for transporting my 12' kayak. My worry of the boat not sliding over the pads was misplaced. The hull slides just fine, thank you. The tie down straps that were included are first rate. I even try to find other uses for the system just to get more use out of them.

- RR571

Worked well and overall I am pleased. Instructions could be a bit more specific but I figured them out. I had difficulty with some of the bolts and nuts as the nuts were not seated into the mounts well and almost seemed bent inside but eventually got them. Hex wrench could be of better quality also. However they worked and are now secured.

- RR571

I bought my roof rack , my bicycle rack and ykayak holder and I love each one of them. I get to go anywhere I want and I'm ready for a day full of fun. I recommend all three of these products .

- RR571

Works great. I single hand load a large kayak from the rear and using correct combination of rack attachments it works great. Ps I almost misplaced the special wench maybe a spare could be included

  • How to Carry 2 Kayaks on Pickup Truck With Over-The-Rail Tonneau Cover
    If you want to carry two kayaks on a pickup truck that will not interfere with an over-the-rail tonneau cover you have a few options. First you could use a Malone # MPG544 Dual 2” Receiver Extension, using the lower receiver to hitch your trailer, and the upper receiver to hitch the Rhino-Rack # RTL002 T-Load Bar. This will support one kayak at the rear of the truck. To support two kayaks you will additionally need the Rhino-Rack # RR-RTLK Replacement Kit to obtain 2 additional load stops...

The Rhino Rack Nautic 581 # RR581 is compatible with crossbars that have a bar or T-slot channel. I've added links to video installs of each product so you can see the difference.
