The NRS Deluxe Canoe Car Rack Kit is a simple, effective system for transporting your boat to and from the water. The non-skid foam blocks protect your canoe and vehicle roof. You can be rigged and ready to go in a snap.
  • Durable mini cell foam cushions your boat and protects your vehicle.
  • The slot in the foam blocks can pop onto the canoe gunwales (two per side). Then the flat non-skid surface is placed directly on the vehicle roof.
  • You can also slip the slots in the blocks over factory rack load bars and set the gunwales on the non-skid surface.
  • Then attach the 14' J-hook Straps to the bow and stern of the boat and affix them to the front and rear of the vehicle.
  • Two 15-foot padded straps provide secure center tie down support.
  • The kit stows away neatly in the included mesh bag. Complete use instructions accompany the kit.
  • 4 - Non-skid foam blocks
  • 2 - 14' Bow/Stern J-hook Straps
  • 2 - 15' x 1" Padded Straps
  • Mesh storage bag
  • Use instructions
  • Molded channel is 1 1/2" in diameter

      I live in northern Indiana & take trips to northern Michigan & the UP, 4+
      hours on the road, no problems!

      I have driven approximately 2 hours one way with this set up and it was fine.  However, I would check it within 30 minutes of leaving ( after obtaining highway speed) just to ensure the canoe is secure).  
      Always drive in the right lane and never more than 65 MPH.  The trick is to make it secure so you can't budge it.  You want to tie it down on the car and not necessarily to the care.  and twirl your straps where they are not touching the boat to avoid the thrum of the wind.

      Yes - good for long trip. Have used it for a 60 mile ride myself (canoe
      on roof of sedan car with the 4 pads and two straps). Have not tried
      highway speeds but up to 60mph the set up works. Of course, aerodynamics
      come into play and the toughness of the straps will not save you if you
      have set the canoe wrong.
      All components are very sturdy.
      This is same (or better to be exact) quality parts that I see everybody
      else is using too.

      As long as all the straps are properly place and adjusted you should be fine.

    Comments about Deluxe Canoe Car Rack Kit:

    I use the product to strap my 16'6" We-no-nah Solo Plus canoe to the top of my Jeep Cherokee. I have a rack, so I don't need the foam blocks. For short trips, I typically use only the 2 center straps.

    Even with only 2 straps, the kit keeps the canoe firmly in place on my car, and it takes all of three minutes to rig up. Great product.

      Comments about Deluxe Canoe Car Rack Kit:

      I bought this as a gift for my daughter and fiance. They just got into canoeing and do not have racks built in to their vehicle. I have 44 years experience canoeing and have a dble high quality fixed rack system, that carries 3 boats;being a solo,a tandem canoe and a kayak, so I run the return shuttle. They needed a secure, quality single canoe carry system. I researched them all and NRS was top quality, all the way!..A no brainer decision for me . Thanks for not going cheap on this product. They will get 20 + years service from this product with normal care.
