I am a 140# woman loading an Ocean Kayak Trident 13 by myself onto a 2007 Camry. Doing this prior to my purchase of the Hully Rollers and the Mako Saddles was very challenging, to say the least. Needless to say it stifled my kayaking trips to a minimum. Since installing them on the Yakima rack system, I cannot believe how easy it is for me to load my kayak!! The rollers are very smooth and once my yak make connection with them it's smooth sailing all the way to the easy-gliding Mako saddles. (I am using a homemade PVC scupper hole cart at the back, which has the back of the yak off the ground about 18" or so.) I LOVE this product! I would have given 5 stars if they came with some sort of anti-theft locking system. But all- in-all, I am quite pleased and on the water a lot more often. Happy Yakin"!
OK. I wish the attachment strapps tightened more. The rollers slide on the Yakima bar.
Hully Rollers: Excellent service from ACK. I have a round pipe on my Yakima kayak frame. The Hully Roller clamps are slightly too large and will loosen after a few uses and flip one way or another under the pipe. (poor engineering) I solved the flipping problem by buying a high grade black electrical tape and wrapping it around the pipe several times. I put the rollers back in place and have not had a problem.
These rollers make my life much easier loading my 15' OK Prowler onto my Yakima truckbed system. I have a F250 that is raised, so there is quite an angle involved in loading or unloading. While I still have the issue with the load angle, the rollers ( and the Mako saddles) do their job very well. I do not use the accompanying tie down straps, but prefer to use ratchet straps to secure.
