Thule 834 Hull-a-port Reviews
jlteaguerated this item 5 out of 5 on 8/27/2014:
Have used these carriers for several seasons without any problems.Easy to set up and very secure in use. Initially used on a roof rack, a couple of years ago transfered to a trailer with no difficulty. For a J rack it would be difficult to ask for more.
Thule 834 Hull-a-port Questions
asked on 5/26/2014:
Doesn't seem like these work with the Yakima round bar system. They won't grip the round bar adeqyutely and just slip around the bar. Right?
Yeah round bars make it difficult for the 834 to work without rolling on the bar. We would suggest going with the Yakima Hullraiser. These would work perfectly on your Yakima bars.

Does the Thule 834 hull-a-port come with 2 of the j hooks for the kayak? The other question I have is....will a bike rack also fit next to the kayak on the bars?
Yes, the 834 is sold as a pair. Also, a bike rack will fit next to your kayak depending on the width of your crossbars, but it really shouldn't be an issue. If you have any other questions, feel free to call our Boston location at 508 879 1444. Thanks!
