How Easy Is It To Load Kayak On Rubber Pads Of Lockrack LR24VR Compared To Normal Kayak Carrier?


Hi, I love the lockrack strapless system and I would like to use it on the Yakima EasyRider trailer, in the lower level of the trailer with a fishing kayak. I have a bad back and lifting the kayak is getting difficult. Lower level of EasyRider means kayak needs to be rear-loaded. How easy will it be to slide the kayak across the LockRacks padded bars? Can those pads be removed? Thanks in advance!


Helpful Expert Reply:

Sliding a kayak across the rubber pads on the Lockrack # LR24VR really won't be much different than normal crossbars/kayak carriers, though I recommend picking up some silicone spray from a local home improvement store and keeping the rubber coated in that every couple of months. This will make loading the kayak even easier than with most kayak carriers, making it a lot easier on your back.

This will work perfectly on the lower level of your Yakima EasyRider # Y08129.
