The Thule Outrigger II Extension Bar is a retractable arm that fits inside your Thule load bar and allows one person to be able to load and unload a boat by themselves. The retractable bar extends from inside the load bar and provides a pivot point for loading boats on tall vehicles. An integrated load stop helps to prevent the boat from sliding off the bar when loading and unloading.

Makes loading and unloading by yourself a breeze. It does mark the bottom of the kayak a little, but so does everything else! I love it.
The Thule Outrigger II with Extension Bar works great! It allows me to load my 72lb., two person fishing kayak onto the car by myself quite easily. NOTE: You must be careful extending it or you will break off the plastic stop and it could extend too far into a dangerous position (voice of experience, an new stop only costs a dollar.)
