SportRack Kayak Saddle Carrier Reviews
Jim rated this item 1 out of 5 on 4/2/2013:
Used once on short trip. Mounted to Yakama crossbar fairly easily, but one mounting nut jammed and seized when trying to remove. Will need to cut off u-bolt and replace. The nut went on easily and was not cross threaded during installation. It appears to have seized due to cross loading forces on bracket. Also, u-bolt slightly wider than plastic bracket mounting holes, which requires force to insert or remove u-bolt causing the bolt threads to scour into the plastic bracket which won't last long at this rate. Not a good design if intended for temporary installation.

Do you need any adapters to fit to either the Thule aero or Yakima whispbars?
The SportRack Kayak Saddle Carrier will fit both of these aerodynamic bars right out of the box.

Does this kit include 4 saddles or do you have to buy 2 of this item for one boat?
This particular kayak saddle comes as a set of 4. If you order 1 it will be enough to carry 1 boat.
