The Yakima ShowDown 8004081 Load Assist Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboard Carrier is the first side loader for both kayaks and SUPs. The ShowDown's slide and tilt mechanism allows you to load your kayak or SUPs at waist height, making loading and unloading easier - especially after a day on the water. The 4081 ShowDown includes flexible width-adjustable felt covered kayak and SUP saddles that easily conform to the size and contours of your boat or boards. The ShowDown's flip out loading platform folds flat when not in use, providing a low profile for improved overhead clearance. The 8004081 ShowDown features tool-free installation with built-in universal mounting hardware, and may be locked to your crossbars for additional security (SKS Lock cores are sold separately - see below). The ShowDown is compatible on most vehicles with Yakima, Thule, Rhino-Rack Malone and Inno after-market crossbars - specific vehicle fits and crossbar lengths will be required for the ShowDown to have proper side clearance. You must have a minimum of 3.5" of crossbar protruding beyond the tower and the outboard clamp can be no farther than 4" from the tower. Heavy-duty tie-down straps and bow stern tie-downs are included.
  • Not compatible with factory crossbars, flush mounted crossbars, Yakima's BaseLine roof rack, or any other roof rack that mounts similar to the BaseLine rack.

Processing Your Credit Card Order
Your order will be reviewed for accuracy and processed upon receipt. If there is a problem with your order, you will be immediately notified by telephone or email. Credit card processing is conducted internally after your order has been reviewed for accuracy. Due to their weight and size, all construction racks, trailers and Kurt Hitches must be ordered and shipped via FedEx Ground Service only. Free Ground Shipping on purchases over $99 applies to the following brands: Aries, Hauler, Inno, Malone, Rhino-Rack, Rocky Mounts, Saris, Thule, TracRac, Vantech and Yakima. Oversize shipping fees will be clearly displayed and will be added to the price of oversize items in your shopping cart. Our Free Ground Shipping offer excludes Cargo Boxes, designated Luggage Baskets, Curt Hitches, BackRack Window Guards and System One Utility Rack Products. All orders are shipped via FedEx or USPS. Coupon Codes do not apply to Awesome Deals!, reboxed items or during sale periods.

Although it is not always possible, we'll try our hardest to ship all orders by the end of the next business day (excluding Vantech, Rhino Rack, RockyMounts and BackRack). Example: Orders received on Friday will ship on Monday. Since Saturday is not considered a business day, expedited packages are not shipped or delivered on Saturday. A direct signature is required on all expedited orders and orders that exceed $499. Ground Packages may be delivered on Saturday in some areas. The day a package is picked up is not counted as one of the delivery days. Cargo boxes, Aries, Hauler, Rhino Rack, BackRack, RockyMounts, Curt Hitches and Malone Trailer products may experience a 2-4 day shipping delay. Vantech is currently experiencing 10-14 day shipping delays due to the Covid-19 situation in New York City. We do not offer expedited shipping on Hauler, Vantech, Rhino Rack, System One, RockyMounts, Malone Trailers, Curt Hitches or BackRack. We do not ship to Hotels. Our Free Ground Shipping Program excludes Alaska and Hawaii. Hawaii and Alaska customers must choose 2nd Day Air as their shipping method. All damaged shipments and missing packages must be reported within 30 days of delivery.

Shipping to U.S. Armed Forces Locations
Because the U.S. Military only delivers via U.S. Mail, our free Ground Shipping program does not apply to U.S. Military Addresses. Shipping to APO/FPO Military Addresses is limited to the following brands: Thule, Yakima, Malone and Saris. All other brands are excluded. With the exception of U.S. Military addresses, we do not ship outside of the 50 United States.
