Works as promised, lets me load and unload my large fishing kayak alone. I wish it were a little wider.
I got my stinger to assist me in loading my 120 Tarpon onto the top of a Wrangler unlimited by myself. It did exactly what they claimed. With my application 2" cross bar the leverage from the stinger tilted the wing back when the kayak was loading (clamping the bracket as hard as I could. Part of the issue could be my application. My Stinger is a bit different from the photo it has a V bar at the end instead of the balls which I believe is a bit too tall because the kayak rests on the v bar instead of the wing with the stinger in the store position. I was able to load by myself. The price point I feel is a bit high for the product. ACK delivered my order again in such a fast manner it makes my head spin.
The Stinger does not work with my 2012 Toyota Tacoma Quad Cab with the factory-installed roof rack...Not enough clearance underneath the crossbars for the Stinger to function without the screws and knobs scratching the roof of the cab. :
Good value - durable - on a lower roof this makes loading very easy - on top of my high truck not so easy but with two persons works well. Once kayak up there hold well even over rough roads. Need to check bolts very so often on rough terrain as can come loose if you forget to tighten after loading. Would recommend .
