Rated 3 out of 5 by It works ... Does what it's supposed to do. Only going short distance with it, dont know if I would feel comfortable on highway. The foam seems to wear out pretty quick. May 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yakima is awesome This is a review on both this product, the Universal Canoe Roof Rack Foam Blocks, and the company, Yakima. First, the blocks: I have used this product numerous times, including 3 times at 70MPH for about 3 hours each way. I do suggest using ratchet straps when traveling at high speeds for long distances. The fact is, my plastic canoe, which is very large at about 4 feet wide in the middle and 14 feet long, does wabble a bit with cross winds at highway speeds. There have been times I wondered if it would stay, but this inexpensive solution has worked well for years now. Second, the company: There was a time when I needed to replace one of the blocks. I expected to call Yakima and order a single block and pay for it myself. Yakima was wonderful about it. They told me that they don't sell single blocks, and then they sent me an entire new set at no charge. They stand behind their product, and I appreciate companies that do that. February 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by worked great and much cheaper than crossbars I plan to use this product on the roof of an suv but this time I was taking the popup camper so I just put it up there and a friend sugested using ratchet straps for added security instead of the pull tight spring straps provided. After the 300 mile round trip I left the canoe on the popup camper for a couple days and the foam did take a set so I advise not to do that and get the load off the foam asap or within reason not days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by It works! It ok for the first time users. I have a Nissan Altima with NO racks and it works! July 23, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Canoe roof rack Foam blocks work great. The straps on the other hand are useless. Only used the center strap and purchased two ratchet straps for ends. July 10, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by broke The product does function to hold a canoe to a car and protect both canoe and car. The store worker helped me place the item on the car. The foam cracked on 2 of 4 blocks with 1st use while inserting canoe edge. The company has a warranty but advises to return item to the store. I have not yet done so. I do not have much confidence that a replacement will be any better. June 4, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lost one on way home The guy at Dicks put my brand new canoe that I bought at dicks on my van with these. These got my canoe home - but one of the foam blocks got lost along the way. Lukily it was a short ride home. September 21, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by ok but over priced works fine, basic not problems but expensive July 13, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works ok, tie-down straps kinda cheap Foam blocks work fine, in fact carrier is ok. However the tie-down straps are a little flimsy. I replaced them with some heavy duty ones. I was a little disappointed that Yakima didn't provide better straps in this product. July 3, 2012
