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.
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.
We have two sets of JayLows to carry 2 Necky Manitou 13s on a Honda Odyssey. We considered purchasing one set and using the option to mount 2 kayaks to the JayLow. We are extremely glad we purchased 2 sets. For carrying our kayaks on our Honda Odyssey it would have been extremely difficult to handle the transport of our kayaks on a single set of JayLows because of the height of the vehicle.. It's a competitive site, but there is a great YouTube video from etrailer.com that describes the (cumbersome) process for carrying two kayaks on a single set of JayLows. Be sure you know what you are getting into before you decide to save money (you will still need to purchase additional tie down straps) and do this. Otherwise, with two sets of JayLows and round Yakima bars we have transported our kayaks for long distances with absolute security. In addition, ACK has great service and customer service as well as a price match feature.
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.
