Yakima Gunwale Brackets

I bought the Yakima canoe brackets because they were cheaper than the Thule. They said they could be used on Thule racks. They can, but they move on the bars when there is windy conditions. I have to use a crescent wrench to tighten these babies down. When adjusting because of different boats they are a royal pain!

Absolutely. It's the law for a reason, it's the only safe way to carry your boats. Many of our canoe and kayak racks come with tie downs, if not you can buy them separately.
