Excellent, highly recommended. This was my first time purchasing kayaks so I was unsure how I was going to transport these, so I tried these. Easy to installation and simple removal. The straps and tie downs are easy to use. Since I own a truck and a SUV, I chose this product because of the the built-in boarding ramp.
The J-Cradle style kayak carrier seems to be a very good overall system for transporting kayaks. This is no exception. I bought two sets of these to transport 2 Old Town Vapor 10 Kayaks from Northern Indiana to Northern Minnesota (BWCA). For all 10hrs the yaks were riding in these cradles, I experienced zero problems. They stayed in place, and didn't cause any rubbing on the yaks. The loading ramps on the carriers do make it easier to roof top load the yaks. I have also used these loaders on my modified utility trailer. I built a frame from unistrut and the cradles fit on the unistrut quite well.
