Kayak Carrier That Fits on Thule TracRac Crossbars

Question:

I have a TracRac that almost everything DOESNT fit. Will this kit with Malone J Pro let bolt heads sit below the surface of the area the kayak rides?

I have a solution for you, and the reason you're having such trouble is that the crossbars on the Thule TracRac Ladder Racks, similar to the # TH43002XT-501, are slightly larger than normal crossbars that are used on roof racks. Because of this, you won't be able to use any kayak carriers that mount with clamps or U bolts around the bars.

With that being said, you will be able to use the Aero Style Crossbar T-Slot Fit Kit # MPG8287 to mount the Malone J-Pro 2 # MPG117MD in the T-slots available on your Thule TracRac. As shown in the attached picture, the bolts are covered up and left un-exposed to the hulls of the kayaks so you won't have to worry about any scratches or other damage being done to the boats while being transported.
