Roof Rack Accessories

As with any roofrack stockist we charge a modest fitting fee but this may be waived when purchased in conjunction with a kayak (on weekends we can get quite busy so you are encouraged to arrange a time before or after hours to have your roofracks fitted, unless you are happy to wait). Please note, however, that we are kayak specialists not roof rack specialists. We suggest that any roofracks fitted by us be thoroughly checked by yourself prior to driving off. As such we waiver ourselves of any responsibility for any loss or damage that might occur as a result (directly or indirectly) of any roofrack fitting. If you are at all concerned about the fitting then we suggest that you rather take your roof racks to a roof rack specialist for fitting.

  Folding J-Rack

Serving the same purpose as the J-Rack (above) except that this one folds down when not in use meaning that you can park under low roofs without worrying about your J-Rack hitting the ceiling!
Not quite as robust as the standard J-Rack we recommend that the folding J-Rack only be used for kayaks under 26kg and less than 5.2m in length.
  Roof Rack Accessories   Rubber Racks

One of the challenges facing many of our customers is how to get the kayaks home.
While we do stock a range of permanent roofracks, not everyone wants to spend that kind of money and some people prefer not to add roofracks to the car if it is company owned etc.
The Rubber Roofracks are the ideal solution.
They are gentle on your vehicle, durable and can easily be used to carry kayaks up to 36kg.
When not in use you simply put it in the boot of your car and then whip it out when you need it, strap it to the roof and then strap on the kayaks in just 2 minutes.
They come with their own built in straps plus an dditional set of straps to strap your kayak on top.
