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.

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.

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

Fit very well, except they do not grip my Oval Toyota cross bars very well. I tighten them as tight as a dare for fear of breaking them, and they still separate after only a 2 mile journey through town. It seems this products greatest feature is also its biggest problem. They will in fact fit almost any type of bar, but because of their universal fit, the don't make good contact, and thus are not very secure. If You have a boat that has a relatively flat bottom I.E. a fishing kayak as opposed to a touring kayak, You probably will not have this problem, but skinny round bottom boats probably will.

This is a relatively low price kayak carrier system, and you get what you pay for. The saddles are padded and have some flex in them so they don't scratch or dent the kayak bottom. However, they do not grip a round bar very well and tend to drift apart allowing the kayak to wedge itself downward, resulting in loose straps and a kayak that is resting on the bar. I called Yakima about this and they did not offer a solution other than to say that the saddles grip better on square bars. I was able to correct the problem by connecting the two saddles on each bar with some line, thus keeping their spacing constant. Yakima should address this issue, but until then I would not recommend this product.
