An easier way to get your heavy kayak onto your car racks The Telos Kayak Load Assist is the perfect solution to save your back and your car windows when loading your bulk kayak. We have all been there, trying to heave your heavy kayak up onto your car's roof racks when it's windy, your grip is slipping, and (even worse) you have a crowd watching you trying to pull off this feat. Don't hurt yourself! Try using this new kayak loading system for a much more stress-free experience loading your boats. Make your next trip to the water even easier with this ingenious loading system!
What roof rack will it fit? The assist system easily attaches to our very popular Malone J-Style Roof Racks:
Padded cradles to protect your kayak Each set of loading cradles is wrapped with protective rubber to prevent any scratching or rubbing while loading your boat. This rubber also helps provide extra grip while raising the kayak onto the rack.
Quick release for fast loading Each attachment comes with a quick-release mechanism to attach and detach to your roof racks. This means you can load one kayak, move the load assist to the other side, and load a second kayak.
Can you use two of theses at the same time, I have a Subaru Outback 2016, we have 2 Kayaks.
To be clear, this kayak load assist system is only that - an assist, and it only works with these roof racks:
Two sets of those roof racks could be set up on most crossbars, to transport two kayaks.
Then for the load assist, you could use it on one side first, to assist with setting the kayak up into the rack, and then you use the quick release button on the load assist and go over to the other side of the vehicle to use it for the kayak/rack.
Can you load 2 kayaks on the roof with these lift assist? Do they fit any roof rack?
These kayak lift assist only work for these particular transportation racks, made by the same manufacturer:
You can use them to load more than one kayak on top of your roof, if you are two of those racks on your rooftop -- you use the quick release button to detach them from the racks on one side of the vehicle, and then go over to the other side of the car and attach them (they attach/release quickly) to the other rack on that side and use them for the second boat there.
