How To Make The Yakima Hully Rollers Kayak Carrier Compatible With Aero Crossbars


I have Thule Aero bars #7602 and I am trying to mount a Yakima Hully Roller on to it for my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. What kind of adapter would make this work?


Expert Reply:

In order to install the Yakima HullyRoller Roof Rack Kayak Carrier part Y04035 on the roof of your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee using the the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack part # TH7602B-TH7602B, you will need to use the Universal MightyMounts for Yakima Roof Mounted Accessories part # Y03590. The MightyMounts are designed to allow for the use of aero crossbars while using the HullyRoller. In order to lock the HullyRoller to your crossbars, you will need both the Yakima Accessory Lock Housing part # Y07220 and the Yakima Same Key System part # Y07204.

Another option for you to consider that would not require the use of adapters is the Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier part # Y04082-2. These kayak carriers are designed to work with aero crossbars and are the newly designed version of the older HullyRollers. In order to secure the HandRolls to your crossbar, you will only need to purchase the Yakima Same Key System part # Y07204 and not the additional housing. This kit also includes tie-downs to secure the kayaks to your vehicle.

I have attached a review video of each carrier for your viewing.
