The Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier is a very low maintenance kayak carrier that is sure to get your boat safely to the water. With multiple settings, the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier allows you to carry one boat in J-Cradle position, two boats in vertical position, plus folds down when not in use. The Yakima JayLow has an 80lb maximum capacity.

Best rack for fitting to round crossbars. This holds my 77lbs kayak VERY stable at highway speeds atop my Wrangler.
Not recommended for solo loading a heavy sit on top. When pushed into position from level to on its side the supports fall back. If loaded with two people having it already on its side they are OK.
Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier I have two sets of these to carry multiple kayaks. These racks are great! They work well on the oval aero bars as well as other shapes. They are easy to raise and lower. Be sure to properly tighten the lever so that it is snug when closed. Put some silicone grease on the mating surfaces for easier actuation. Very versatile with the multiple angle adjustment. Definitely recommended.
Would not recommend this for a heavy sit on top fishing kayak. I have a Jackson Big Tuna and the supports will not stay locked in the position you put them, wants to fall over. However they work very well with my Necky Manitou Sport. Would suggest the stationary mounts for heavier kayaks.
