Take the hassle out of kayak loading.
Getting your heavy beast of a kayak up and onto the roof of your car, and then securing it, is no easy task. Save yourself some energy for the water adventure ahead with the help of the Thule DockGlide Kayak Saddle. Designed for convenience and peace of mind, the DockGlide easily loads and unloads your vessel with pivoting felt-lined rear saddles that guide, glide, and center it onto your vehicle. The two independent pivoting saddles have an angle-setting lever to conform to just about any hull shapes, while large, flexible, cushioned pads protect said hull from damage mid-transport. And don't worry about locking it down with a tangled mess of bungee cords and rope—you'll instead quickly secure the kayak with center load straps that feature car-protective buckle bumpers and QuickDraw bow and stern tie-downs for safe, worry-free traveling.

Great Kayak Carrier
Love them. Super easy to install and remove (I use them with the Thule Aeroblade roofrack where they slide into the groove-track). They come with all straps with bumper buckles and bow and stern tie-downs included.
