Padding Needed for Carrying Kayak with Load Extender

Question:

I have a bed extender that is used to lift the Kayak over the truck bed. So one end of the kayak is on the roof rack of the truck and the on the bed extender. The bar on the bed extender is square and about 2inch all around 2x2x2x2 but I cant seem to find a foam pad to protect the kayak from the bar. I was looking at Swagman Coastal Kayak Carrier - Foam Block Style but not sure these will work. Can you help?

We do have a variety of options to help protect your kayak. These range from the foam blocks # MPG152 that you referenced to the linked page of crossbar pads like the Yakima part # Y07412 which are 20" long.

If you can let me know what load extender you are using I can make more of a specific recommendation.

Thank you for the update!

Since you have the Erickson Big Bed Junior Load Extender # EM07605 I recommend using the Darby Foam Kayak Block # DTA924. Then all you need are some tie-downs like parts # E98876-4 and # MPG306.
