This is by far one of the best roller options for kayaks and the only roller option for canoes. 4 out 5 due to the Showboat's install time.

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.
