Yakima JayLow Kayak Rack
Item: 62607.01 | Product Description »
- The padded J-Cradles spread out the boat's weight, especially nice with more fragile expensive composite kayaks.
- The integrated ramps on the out-facing side of the cradles provide a smooth, non-scratching surface for sliding your boat up onto the cradles.
- If you need to carry two kayaks, simply lock the padded arm in the upright position and put the second boat on the other side.
- Includes straps for lashing one boat to the rack and bow/stern security straps.
- When not in use the padded arm folds flat to reduce wind resistance.
- Fits on round, square and most factory cross bars.
- Locks securely with SKS Lock Cores (sold separately).

The "Swiss army knife" of cartop kayak racks, the Yakima JayLow can hold one kayak in its supportive J-Cradle, or convert into a kayak stacker to support two boats.

Comments about Yakima JayLow Kayak Rack:
The JayLows are a great upgrade from the Yakima Bow-Downs. The Jays are easy to install and provide a great secure fit for your kayak. There is a place I go to paddle just to be on the water and stay in shape that is just down the road--literally 3minutes-- from where I live. When I put my composite kayak up on the JayLows I don't even utilize the tie-downs and my boat stays securely in the cradle. If I go on long trips I use tie-downs and feel comfortable that these JayLows will secure my boat. This is a vey good product from Yakima. I also purchased the SweetRoll and they are wonderful. I perceive that SweatRolls will replace Hully-Rollers and the JayLow will replace the Bow-Downs. Worth the $$$ on both systems.
