Great -- except my older version of this product was easier to take on and off -- older version had a single bracket and one end was open, so you could just loosen the nuts and slide the bracket over. The version I just purchased has 2 brackets and no open end -- maybe they did this to make it more secure, but was quite happy with the older version. I might look into replacement brackets for the old version to use on the new.
Took these on the maiden voyage yesterday- in 40 mph winds. 63# hard shell and 32# inflatable kayaks stayed put, even without using the bow/stern tie-downs. Racks take about 20 minutes per boat and you can fit 2 large kayaks on the same car. Perfectly compatible with 2015 Subaru Outback factory racks.
