Oak Orchard Stainless Steel Kayak J-Cradles, Universal Mount

The Universal Mount fits perfectly on just about any shape of rack crossbar. Fits on oval or wing shaped rack crossbars up to 3.5" wide or up to 2" thick including Yakima™ Jetstream bars and Core bars, Thule™ Aero bars, and most vehicle factory racks.
Our designers here at Oak Orchard also have designed the "Stainless Steel J- Cradle" kayak carrier to car top kayaks safely and easily. All Weather Stainless Steel Frame (no rust), Deluxe Rubber Padding. Fits all kayaks. Our Patented "Upside Down" - 4 Minute Easy Load - Strap System. (No Step Stool Required)
Each J-Cradle is 14" from front to rear, about 10" of this in the middle tray contacts the bar. Each Cradle is about 23" tall. Frequently the kayak takes up more space than the cradles. We use two bolts and two connectors per cradle or saddle for extra stability compared to other brands which only have one. Our two connectors are spaced apart so that you can span over a tower. If there is just one connector you need to go either side of the tower, which means you have less room for kayaks.
This design is much more effective than a mere stacker and it's tall enough to handle even the widest tandem kayaks -yet narrow kayaks are no problem. Other J's and stackers have many more parts to remove, are more difficult to take on and off and are usually only about 1/2 the height of our Stainless Steel J-Cradles. When empty both J-Cradles can be loosened and tilt over flat so you can easily reach straps or even drive into your garage!
This is an easy one person load! (others require 2 people)
You can actually set your kayak in the J-Cradle without it falling over before you get it strapped down! (try that with a stacker!)
Includes two patented upside down - easy load - no step stool required - straps!

Optional Extras:
a.) Use Stainless Steel J-Cradles for kayak wall storage with optional Wall Clip Kit.
b.) Add padding on the back to use J-Cradle as a stacker to carry a second kayak.

Always use bow and stern straps (sold separately).
