Yakima Standard Foam Block Kayak Rack
We purchased our first Kayak and all the accessories, paddle,life vest, and roof carrier and this product failed. We followed the instructuctions and had about a 60 mile drive to get our new Kayak home,upon arrival we discovered the foam had split in half almost as though it had been dried out and was brittle so now the $40 dollars we spent is for nothing and we must look for another carrier. I would NOT recommend this product for use as we should have just thrown our money out the window after breaking with one use!!!

Basic kayak transportation
If you need to securely strap your kayak to your car's roof, but don't have a roof rack, this will get the job done. But I would suggest a roof rack if at all possible!

canoe car rack
Easy and effective. Works great. It took me 10 min to get the canoe in the car and strapped down by myself.

functional and relatively inexpensive
This product ended up being better than I expected from the package.
Set up takes about t 10 minutes and it stores in my trunk no problem. For the
Price it's a great way to carry my boat without a luggage rack on my roof.

Easy to use and keeps kayak safely attached to roof when traveling.

I have a Saturn 3-door coupe and there are no roof racks available for it, so I bought the Yakima Blocks to haul my kayaks. They work perfectly. I've traveled on the freeway at normal speeds (65mph+) without issue and have left the kayak mounted for days at a time between use. The one thing I did do, was use after-market wratchet straps that I already had to secure the bow/stern. With this change, the boat never moves once ssecured.

Who needs a luggage rack?
Used this on our 2005 Ford Taurus to haul our kayak 20 miles and back. Worked great! Great price for the service! No need to go expensive, this worked great, and one person can handle this job.

Great for what i needed it for.
Easy and fast to use. I only go on small trips with my kayak, but it works great for what I use it for.

For its price, it delivers
I needed a way to secure my newly purchased kayak on roof of my sedan. I was ready to buy an expensive kit, but my son said that the Yakima Standard Kayak Foam Blocks would do the trick. He was right. Of course, I still am learning to use the foam blocks and belts, but I'll be proficient soon. My son has been taking care of securing the kayak, but now I know that I'll be able to do it.
