Yes, if you:

  • Alternate between kayaking solo in a heavy boat and paddleboarding with friends
  • Park in a garage and need something low-profile when in the storage position to fit under the door
  • Hate wasting time strapping your boat to the carrier (though bow & stern straps are still recommended)

No, if you:

  • Plan to carry other gear on your roof like bikes or a cargo basket while transporting your kayak
  • Only get on the water occasionally and can’t justify dropping a bunch of money on a rack
  • Take your rack off/on frequently

Unfortunately I did not have the best of luck with this product . I spoke with the company multiple times to ensure this would work with my rack. It did not. This system is made to work ONLY on a roof rack . I have a truck with a rack and a slot in the middle . We had to make different bolts and holders to install this. For using 2 Paddleboards we also had to modify the back of the racks holders to actually touch the boards to hold them in place . After the modifications and many many adjustments we have it working and it does hold great.


Great substitution for the original lock rack. The only major difference is the arms. They are straight, and not bent like the OG lock racks are. They work great! I ordered the adjustable base (21" minimum) to match the other rack. These are great!


Very sturdy and easy to use as a solo paddler loading it on my own. I just leave one side facing up and once kayaks on the roof, slide the other 2 arms to lock it in place, then put a strap around it for extra security if im traveling far


I picked excellent because it will eliminate climbing on a ladder to put on straps. When I first looked at it mounted on my car I never thought it would be secure. I recruited my neighbor to see if I could side load using a small stepstool. (I am 5'3"). With my old Thule rack I could cover the back of my car with a rug and slide my kayaks on up to the roof. Fortunately, I have a very light Eddyline kayak that I use most of the time, so for this kayak it is manageable. When I secured the kayak with the arms, I was surprised how tight it was with absolutely no movement. Haven't driven with it yet but I am sure that it will work well. The only problem I had was it took all afternoon to put it together. I think you need to improve the photos and have more detailed instructions. A current installation video with this newer designed kayak rack. The videos I found had several different arms.

Just fine...very secure. Only disadvantage for me as a short woman I cannot get it on on the roof of my car by myself. I cannot slide it up from the rear of the car either because of the rubber the arms which is necessary

They work very well, Good product!


Awesome invention. Greatly reduced the amount of time and frustration usually associated with loading up our 2 SUPs and small sport kayak. It does take some time to install but that is expected. Don't assume the initial installation is a 10-minute job. However, once the system is in place, loading and locking the SUPs and kayak was simple and quick. We did have to experiment a bit with the best combination to make everything fit. I was hoping we could fit three SUPs on one rack, but no chance. My only complaint is that the keys provided are plastic, and strip very easily when unlocking the bars to remove or make adjustments. Without a key, your stuff is stuck. We hope that LockRack with come up with a more sturdy, metal replacement key for this system.


Great prices. Quick delivery and great products.


I use the Lockrack system to transport an inflatable stand up paddleboard. I know, seem counterintuitive, but while we transport our two boards in their deflated state for long distances (beach trips), they get more use locally if you can leave it inflated and toss it on the car and go. The Lockrack system is genius, and avoids all the fuss with ratcheting straps down, and hoping they are secure. Since these racks are not widely used from what I gather, it is somewhat difficult to determine the specs, and there are not a large number of reviews with specific examples of what can be carried. So for what it's worth, it CANNOT carry two inflatable paddleboards- specifically the Tower Adventurer 2 models. It might be able to fit a second board if it was the racing model (skinnier in width), and the composite SUPs are likely not as tall, so it really just depends on what you have. I already had a classic Lockrack double SUP rack (that only fit one of my inflatable boards), and was hoping the XL expandable rack would allow for both boards, but at max expansion it is actually the same width as the classic, non-expandable Lockrack. I think the XL adds a few inches extra height, but nothing in terms of width. So while I'm returning the XL model, it is not for lack of appreciation of what it can do. One day we'll upgrade to boards that can both fit, but for now, even cutting the time in half and inflating one board instead of two is reward enough. I don't own a kayak or canoe, but after watching friends struggle with transport, I would highly recommend the Lockrack system for that as well.


these work really well...i emailed back and forth to the company about the width and they said that you don't have to install the small bar that joins the two pads if you're kayak is too wide. i have a hobie pa 14 and a nucanoe pursuit, both of which are too wide to keep the bar installed. hope that helps. great product, holds up well.


Have carried the kayak but the system went together flawlessly.


Original package was damaged during shipment, but Customer Service resolved the issue with no friction. Great experience. Lockrack is the easiest to use rack I’ve used. 30 seconds or less to load and unload kayak and paddle boards.

I would give it 4.5 stars if I could. Only cons are a slightly difficult installation and the quality of the plastic keys used to unlock the arms. Highly recommend the product.


I don't really know what I am doing when it comes to mounting my gear on top of my truck but I just went with what I had. The Rhino Rack dual bars and Lockrack made it simple and very secure while hailing my camper and other items stored in my truck bed. It went just as I planned. Both my wife's SUP+ and my kayak traveled secure and out of the way. Looking for many more trips in our retirement.


I love this rack. It fits my double ocean kayak perfectly. It was easy to install and now I don’t have to do the tie downs that the other racks require. Also I can take it on out of town trips as it locks my kayak onto the rack. Finally somebody designed a easy lockable kayak rack. This product is a must have.


Love the rack so far! I debated it, however struggled with pulling the trigger for a few reasons, primarily concerns for winter transporting with ice issues. I decided to buy it and just plan to use regular straps in the winter. The one thing I had a hard time finding any feedback on was the option for transporting a standards or touring SUP with a race board. They are both so different in shapes. I did find some comments about loading the board that is wider on the top. That would not work for me due to the shape of the board, plus I would not want my race board to have that kind of pressure. I have been loading it on top, but having it pushed forward more than I generally would. So far it is working great. I do get a whistle. Not sure if it is my roof rack, my lock rack or both. Still giving it a 5 due to its functionality!


It works just like it was described. It locks tight, and the kayak does not move at all. I never have liked working with straps, now I won't have to.


enjoyed the experience...the team processing my order were great at answering my questions... and when the rack arrive with i missing piece, a replacement piece was dispatched quickly... the whole team is very focused on customer satisfaction, which is refreshing...


Great product, great online demonstrati on.


This is so easy to use!


Works great. i can drive 65 to 70 mph with kayak trailer and it is very secure.


Everything looks in good shape, accept the lettering is worn off.
