This rack works great on my Jeep Cherokee, I also bought the extension cradle to handle two Kayaks. Best part is they fold down for low clearance garages! Very little wind noise with rack on without an air deflector installed. Would highly recommend, they have held up well so far.

I have a 2015 Subaru Impreza and use these Rhino Rack J-Cradles to carry my 2 kayaks on a Rhino Rack Aero cartop carrier. I bought 2 sets of them so I can load one kayak on each side for easier loading and unloading. They are durable, come with excellent, quality straps to secure the kayaks and paddles and they work great. No handling problems and easy to mount and dismount. Highly recommended!

I always do the research to buy the best bang for your buck, and this seems to be that product. I spent a little more to have the fold down to park in my garage at night and glad I did. Love this system. I put two 12 foot kayaks up on my roof and Rhino does well.

These seem to be exactly what we need. I had bought some cheap "universal" carriers on another site. The straps snapped on the highway, and the kayak went flying across the interstate. These cradles are very sturdy, and the straps are much thicker and stronger than the knock-offs. Spend the $$$. It's worth it!
