Recommended Solution to Carry Kayaks Using Curt Roof Rack on 2018 Jeep Cherokee  


I plan on using ratcheting straps to secure my canoe to the rack. Where do the hooks for the straps attach. Are there eye hooks you can purchase to install in the channelinch of the rack? Thank you for your prompt reply.

I may have a solution to help you better secure your kayak on the crossbars, but there is not an available eyelet that can be mounted on the Curt # C18118 since there are not channels on the bars. It sounds like maybe you don't already have a kayak carrier, which would provide the best possible solution to secure kayaks to your roof rack. I recommend using the Curt J-Style Kayak Carriers # C18320, which will mount to the Curt roof rack bars on the # C18118 and comes with 2 tie down straps included. This is the safest and most secure way to carry kayaks on a roof rack since they'll keep the boats from shifting around on the bars.

I've linked some review videos of these parts for you to check out.
