Yakima 8004085 Boatloader EVO Retractable Kayak and Canoe Loading Assist Bar is a retractable arm that installs into the end of your Yakima CoreBar or Roundbar and slides out when you need it for lifting your boat safely from the ground to your car roof rack. The Yakima Boatloader EVO works with Yakima CoreBars and Roundbars only. The Boatloader EVO assists with the loading process by providing a telescoping bar, designed to keep your boat away from the car. To operate, extend the telescoping boatloader bar out of your crossbar, place the bow of your hull onto the Boatloader EVO bar, lift the stern onto your rack, move the bow onto the rack, retract the Boatloader EVO into the bar. The Boatloader EVO stores inside of your Yakima bar when not in use. All corrosion resistant hardware and directions are included.
