"Welcome to the BIGGEST - LITTLE canoe and kayak shop in the world"
Style #1 Deluxe
Mounts just inside the tailgate against the flat-vertical sidewall. (Basic Style #1 requires trucks with a flange)
Style #1 Deluxe (For all newer trucks with an open box.)
Style #1 Basic (For older trucks with a flange sidewall. ie: older Toyota, Nissan, Chevy S-10, Ford Ranger, Jeep.)

Installation is simple!
First stand the upright on the floor, against the flat side wall area near the tailgate. Drill mark through the holes with 1/4" bit. Remove the screws holding in your tail-light assembly and "visually" align those marks and the inside cavity of the tail-lights. There should not be anything that would impede your drilling the two holes into this area. Start with a 1/4 inch bit on the bottom hole, then open this up to a hole just large enough to fit the plus-nut. You are now ready to install the plus-nuts with the tool kit supplied!

Insert the nutsert tool into the hole and tighten it up using the wrench provided or a socket.
Unscrew the nutsert tool and then run the bolt thru the upright
and into the Nutsert (only finger tight).

Now, drill mark the sidewall for the second nutsert installation.
Swing the upright out of your way and finish drilling the second hole.
Now, swing upright up and insert and tighten the second bolt. Tighten both!

OK, almost there...
just connect the crossbar, put on the end caps (and any accessories)
and you're Done!

Optional 78" bars are available
for those who want
to carry two canoes at once.
Carry 3 kayaks side by side with 78" wide bar.

Style #1 is great if you don't have a tonneau cover. They're easy to install and the strongest in the industry!
No Shimmy like competitors folding style aluminum uprights.
Pictures above show the deluxe #1 version but the basic version is similar except conventional
bolts and locknuts are used on older flange models instead of the Nutsert system.
(Nutserts are used for EASY on-off and required on all newer model trucks).
Be sure to tie down EACH end of your canoe or kayak to EACH corner of your bumber (or to hood loops on each side).
Also, tie your craft down at each crossbar or rack.
This way your craft is secured to the rack, as well as secured to the vehicle.
