This convenient, easy-to-install YakRAX system easily secures onto your boat's gunwale to keep your kayak secure and out of the way. Aluminum alloy construction is anodized for protection against the elements, making the rack system durable and long-lasting. The rack also features heat-pressed, die-cut EVA foam linings to cushion the cradle, keeping your kayak free from scratches when loading or unloading. Heavy-duty shock cord straps attached to the racks keep the kayak snug and secure. Installation of the YakRAX is a cinch. Versatile clamps can be attached to straight or angled rails and stanchions. Fits 7/8" and 1-1/4" rails. Works with all kayak styles. All mounting hardware and installation tools are included.
