The BigStack would be a good solution to transport two kayaks. It is designed to carry up to four kayaks. However, in the past, some customers have complained about the difficulty of actually loading long-kayaks and securing them to the BigStack on tall vehicles. For just two boats we think the Yakima Jaylow would be a better alternative.

No! Any tools required for installing this rack product come included in the box!

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.
