Discount Ramps is proud to bring to you the Thule 881 Top Deck Kayak Carrier saddles! The Top Deck kayak saddles are a complete system designed to transport one kayak up to 36 inches in width and up to 75 evenly distributed pounds using an existing vehicle roof rack. This roof mounted kayak rack makes it easy to get your boat from your garage to the water. This rooftop kayak carrier was designed to attach to most factory roof racks or load bars in just a matter of minutes. The four supports for the Top Deck Kayak saddle simply screw on the roof rack of your vehicle and the two tie downs that are included with this kit features friction buckles that keep the kayak secured to the roof of your vehicle and not in the road! This kayak rack is a great alternative to a full feature kayak saddle and comes with everything you need to mount, secure, and travel with your kayak safely. The mounting brackets for the kayak carrier mount directly to the existing load bars or roof racks of your vehicle. The custom designed saddle will conform to whatever shape the hull of your kayak is. The mounting brackets feature integrated rubber pads that give your kayak maximum protection while it’s being moved. Use Thule’s Top Deck to move big sea kayaks or short play boats as this carrier has a large contact surface area and is safe and easy to use.
The Discount Ramps model number for the Thule Top Deck Kayak Carrier saddles is 881. This kit comes with all the necessary hardware with large surface contact saddles to ensure optimal stability during kayak hauling. The Thule kayak saddle comes with all the required hardware needed to mount, and transports one kayak that weighs up to 75 pounds and can be up to 36 inches wide on a vehicle roof rack. Included in the kit are two loaded straps that feature padded buckles designed to protect the hull of your kayak. Two bow/stern tie-down straps are included as well to keep the kayak in place, and four of the large contact surface saddles are include and integrated to this system for the kayak to rest on. To work properly, you must have a roof rack on your vehicle, and a 24 inch spread bar is required to properly mount the kayak carrier. This top deck kayak carrier fits Thule Standard, Rapid Aero, and Xsporter load bars, as well as Yakima and a factory installed luggage rack. The Thule 881 kayak saddle comes with the Thule rack’s limited lifetime warranty.
