Thule warranty information.
Purchased this rack for ease of use and to improve independence in being able to load and unload my own boat following a spinal cord injury. I am no longer able to reach overhead and stand on the wheel well to load my boat much less to tie it down. This rack has been amazing so far!

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.
Unfortunately, no. The Thule 898 Hullavator Pro can only be used with Thule roof racks. Many factory roof racks are unable to support the stress put on the bars leveraging your kayaks over the side of the vehicle. For this reason Thule only allows this rack to be used with Thule brand roof racks.
