Yakima 8004042 BowDown Fold down Kayak J-Cradles are designed to fit Yakima Roundbars, Whispbar Racks, Thule square and AeroBlade crossbars, and most factory installed crossbars out of the box. The Yakima BowDown Kayak Cradles offer a space saving alternative to standard kayak saddles. When not in use, the Yakima BowDown Kayak Cradles fold down for better aerodynamics and garage clearance. The Yakima BowDown works well with all styles of kayaks including touring and whitewater kayaks, plastic and composite kayaks, while requiring far less crossbar space than saddles. BowDown's integrated ramp system makes loading your kayak a breeze. The BowDown incorporates steel tube construction and heavy-duty HullGuard padding to firmly carry and gently cradle your kayak. An integrated bottle opener is conveniently positioned at the end of the BowDown base. Heavy-duty tie down straps are included to securely fasten your kayak to your BowDown Cradles. Bow and stern tie down straps are included, and strongly recommended, to prevent movement caused by crosswinds and sudden stops and accelerations. With the addition of 2 SKS Lock Cores, the BowDown Kayak Cradles may be locked to your crossbars (sold separately - see below).
