MRS SUZANNE F M.wrote a review of Yakima Mako Saddles on June 13, 2008
Great saddles for securing your kayaks to the rack. Unfortunately it takes time to mount them to the rack .. for two kayaks there are eight wing nuts to align and tighten. Since we do not wish to drive around all the time with the saddles mounted it becomes a hassle to mount and dismount them before and after each paddle. Would be nice to have a simpler/faster mechanism: challenge to Yakima engineers.
