Haul your canoe safely to the river without investing hundreds of dollars in a new carrier with the Yakima gunwale brackets. Designed to fit any vehicle with round or square crossbars, the bundle includes a set of four brackets that attach to your car's crossbars on one side and your canoe's gunwales on the other. Once the brackets are secured, you can load and unload your canoe in mere seconds. Your canoe will stay protected thanks to the brackets' low height and soft, rounded edges. And the pair of heavy-duty straps with padded buckles will help keep the canoe in place as you cruise down the highway. Also outfitted with long-lasting, stainless-steel hardware, the brackets require a set of bow/stern tie-down straps (sold separately) for maximum stability.

This system takes the guess work out of rooftop canoe carrying. It gives all the necessary straps and instructions for tying down the canoe. Once I had done it once, I was able to get a canoe loaded and tied down alone in less than 10 minutes. Great product!

I use these brackets to secure my large tandem kayaks to my roof or trailer racks. The kayaks transport upside down with the gunwhales fitting perfectly on the brackets. They protect my kayaks and the crossbars as well as limit vibration. The straps are included and have a great system for padding the steel buckles. It is commpletely secure at highway speeds. Great product.

We have a pair of 10 foot Hornbeck canoes, which we carry on a Yakima roof rack on our Subaru Outback. Tying them down with rope worked for a while, but taking them on and off the car involved considerable labor. And on our last trip the soft mounting under the gunwales failed. So I bought a pair of Rooftop adapters, and was able to mount the canoes side by side, using two straps over the pair of canoes. I am very happy with the increased convenience, and expect the security of mounting to be better as well.

Good product. Works as advertised. Easy to adjust. Easy to steal. I wish they were theftproof. This product, combined with the Yakima Bow/Stern tiedowns make for a rock steady setup that holds our 16'4" Kevlar canoe rock solid on my Explorer.

Purchased a handful of Yakima products as we were gearing up for long-distance travel with our camping gear and rec toys. To help transport our 15' canoe on top of my Tundra bought 2 rails for top of truck, one rack for the bed of my truck. Was waffling on purchasing these as I figured I could probably just tie it down well enough. Uh, wise choice I caved and got these! These are great! Lift canoe, place in connectors, tie down canoe. When want to remove canoe, loosen connector by hand, remove canoe and done. EZPZ! Well worth the money!

Just a heads up, these will not fit stock Jeep Partiot cross bars, wrong shape. I can not blame Amazon for this as I failed to check with the manufacture prior to purchase. The required cross bars and towers are around $175 to make them fit. No big deal, I went back to the foam blocks until something better and affordable comes along. I gave them four stars because they look like they would work just fine, just not on stock Jeep Patriot racks.

Looks like a great idea, but the brackets don't fit the standard GM roof rack on my SUV. You would need the special round or square cross bars (not rectangle, flat, or any other shape). I bought the Thule instead, perfect fit, and the Thule includes the front and rear ratcheting tethers also.

These brackets fit perfect!! They are the newest model that fit either round or square bars. Work great on my Thule rack.
