Suction cup roof bar kayak loaders


Hi all,
Has anyone had any experience with suction cup fitted roof bars ie K- Rack or Bullhorn to assist with rear loading kayaks?

I previously used a Rack & Roll to side load my Hobie Outback on the old Magna but the yak would knock against the side of the car on the way up and down, something I don't want to repeat on the nice shiny exy.

Can anyone recommend the best way to go with loading a heavy and wide yak with minimal effort and no damage?

Cheers.

Re: Suction cup roof bar kayak loaders


Given you posted this a year ago I take it you solved your problem? But I'll answer for others who may find this thread in future.

I have seen the suction cup loaders handle a Hobie Pro Angler getting loaded onto a Landcruiser no worries.

I personally just bought a Rhino Universal Side loader for $149 and it helps heaps. If anyone gets them, remove the canvas cover from the loading bar as it makes the surface slippery and your yak could slide onto your precious Exy.
