I'm interested in using these pads on a Jeep Wrangler rack to carry kayaks on their side with a stacker rack. The crossbars are 1" in dia. I'm interested in these vs the foam pads as it seems it would easier to position the kayaks vs dealing with foam pads moving on bars. Typically I'll only carry one kayskmpervside, but may carry a 3rd kayak at times, and thought these pads again would be easier than positioning another set of foam pads. My crossbars are 54" so I'll have enough length. Your thoughts of using these pads this way? And will they adequately protect the kayaks...these are recreational plastic kayaks. Thanks.
