Thule Watersport Carrier Parts - Replacement Pad for Kayak Carriers - 853-5540 Review

Ellen: Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here at, and we're going to be taking a quick look at the replacement pad for your Thule kayak carriers. This is going to be a six-inch pad to go on the ends of your roof-mounted kayak carrier to help protect the hull of your boat from any kind of damage.So it's just going to be this covered, basically, foam pad that's going to go around the ends of your carrier. It's got a little hook and loop closure to help keep that in place. Maybe this flew off, got bumped off, ripped up, or damaged in some kind of way, this is going to be a direct replacement from Thule to get that back on your carrier.So let's take a closer look and make sure it's the right fit for your particular carrier. Again, this does measure six inches from side-to-side.

So six inches there. About closer to six and a half inches longways.It just opens up. We'll have those layers of foam to help protect our carrier and also our kayak or any other watercraft that we're using with this. This works with the Hull-a-Port and Hull-a-Port Pro, as well as the Hullavator and Hullavator Pro. For the actual part numbers, you can see those listed on our product page here at

And if you need a replacement cradle arm, we do also have those available for those J-Style carriers. So that's going to be the Hull-a-Port.So, if you need any other replacement parts for any kind of tool year, we usually have just about anything you can think of. So check us out right here at Thanks for watching.
