Review: Great product. Very easy to install, very resistant and practical to use.

Review: First off - Let me just say how awesome customer service is with ACK! I drive a brand new Nissan Frontier Crew Cab SL with factory rails and crossbars the flat blade style. I had been apprehensive about most mounts as they all seem to be designed for square or round bars. Turns out the Even Keel mounts work extremely well with my factory bars and grip it very tightly. Their low profile looks great on top of my truck without the kayak and cushion it well when its in the saddles. I highly recommend this product to fellow Frontier owners who dont want to spend a fortune to haul around their kayak. Having an empty truck bed gives me lots of options.

Review: Put these on a 2013 Outback with factory oval bars. My last subaru I did the yakima towers and round crossbars. This time around I wanted to see if I could get away with using factory oval bars. Against a lot of reviews Ive read, these saddles are awesome!! They hold the boat as secure as anything Ive seen and they grip and do not budge on the oval bars. Just took a 500 mile trip with a 21ft surfski and felt totally at ease with the ride. Im purchasing another set to replace some J-cradles.

Review: I agree with everyone , the grips do not tighten on round crossbars an continue to seperate , Funny Yakima only makes round bars so this product does not work on their own bars works better on square bars that Yakima does not make I would find another product
