Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Get annoyed with strapping down your kayak and want to make it a little easier with the help of a strap guide
  • Prefer to leave the rack installed to make a quick getaway to the water

No, if you:

  • Only get on the water a couple times a season and have a hard time justifying the expense of this rack
  • Typically paddle around on a fishing kayak, which tends to be heavier - this rack can only handle up to 75 lbs
This folding kayak rack installs without tools in the T-slots on your Thule crossbars. It has built-in ramps for easy loading and unloading, and soft rubber pads for hull protection. Includes locks and tie-down straps. Lowest Prices for the best watersport carriers from Thule.

Overall pleased with the kit. Everything locks which is nice and also great being able to fold them down. Price would be my only complaint, not etrailer, but thule and what they charge for these seems a bit much compared to other setups.

Thanks etrailer, your YouTube videos are very helpful. I have a 2013 Ford F-150 and was looking for kayak transportation solutions. I already had that Thule Evo Wing Bars and needed to find something to go with that. I first tried the Thule Hullavator but that proved to not work. 1: The combined weight of the bars, kayaks and 2 Hullavators exceeded my roof weight limit. 2: The 60” bars are not long enough to allow the Hullavator to swing down over the side of the cab. So, I switched to the Hullaport Aero which I ordered from etrailer. The website ordering was simple and shipping was super fast! The package was well boxed and the installation of the Hullaport Aero was super simple on the Thule Wing Bar Evo. Thanks! I would highly recommend you and would do business with you again in the future.

These were easy to install and use, and I love that I can still park in my garage.




by:

This was a very satisfactory affordable alternative to the higher priced racks with T slot. I did find that inserting the bolt for Thule Hull-a-Port carrier required that I pull the noise-reducing strip, cut it down, and reinstall it. The instructions that the strip could just be pushed down did not work for these bolts -- just too large. Overall pleased once I played with it a bit.

Worked great on my new Track rac...

I bought two sets of these, and got them put on in less than an hour. Used them for the first time this morning and they were very secure. Also let me keep parking in my garage when folded down. Totally pleased with this purchase.

High Quality, Easy Install. Product was back ordered but still arrived in a timely manner.
Very strong, durable and tough construction. I like the fold down feature.




by:

Really high quality - can't wait to drop the yaks on 'em!




by:

This thing is solid. Love the clean look of attaching it to the aero rail t-slots. Worth the price in my opinion.

Review from a similar Hull-A-Port in Watersport Carriers


Good quality. Sturdy. Kayaks fit well. While installing I had difficulty cinching the brackets down to my Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars, they were too thick for the bolts that were shipped with the J Style Hull-A-Port. Quick trip to the hardware store for replacement stainless steel bolts and all is well.
