SUP Carrier That Can Lock Paddleboards


Thule Compass Lockable? How would you use the 6 ft cable lock to lock a paddleboard to the roof?


Expert Reply:

We have a good option for a SUP carrier that can lock your boards, but the Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier # TH890000 doesn't have a locking system and isn't really feasible to lock with a cable as that would be pretty unwieldly. Instead, there is a much better option for you from Thule:

- Thule SUP Taxi XT Stand-Up Paddleboard Carrier # TH810001

The SUP Taxi XT uses rubber-coated steel-reinforced straps that secure your boards to the carrier, and the straps go through a "door" that has locks on it which is what locks your SUPs to the carrier. The carrier also has a lock where it mounts to your roof rack, so both the carrier and your boards are protected. I have added a photo showing exactly where these locks are on the SUP Taxi XT # TH810001.

This is by far the best way to provide secure transportation for your SUPs as a cable lock really won't do the job. I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well of the SUP Taxi XT # TH810001 if you'd like to take a look.
