I just got my roof rack last week and I'm considering getting a set of these for my kayaks. I was wondering would it be a good idea to get some kind of rack pad to go along with this, or is that unnecessary?
The pads will help the kayaks from possible slipping a little and thats if you don't really tighten it down.
I wouldn't go buy pads I would just use some old towels or something and if you feel as if the towels make a huge difference than look at purchasing pads in the future. No sense in spending money on something that "might" not be needed.
