J Style Kayak Carrier Recommendation for a Yakima Round Bar Roof Rack


Have a Yakima round bar system and want to mount a couple of SportRack J kayak carriers Tried a friends carrier and it did not clamp all that well to the round rod-would fall down going over bumps Would like to pin each of the 4 carriers to the rodsdo the carriers have suitable holes to drill thru? Thanks,


Expert Reply:

I can't recommend you drill through your Yakima round bars to pin the Sportrack J-Kayak Carrier # SR5511 to it.

Instead I would recommend a Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073 which was specifically designed to fit Yakima round bars and would work well for you. The rack can fold down when not in use as well which is nice.

Check out the review video I attached for more info as well.
