How to Safely Secure a Kayak to Your Vehicle

To ensure your kayak is safely secured to your vehicle, you want to make sure you have a foolproof system to keep it in place. Getting from one destination to another with your kayak on the roof of your car can be quite a challenge as the uplift from the wind or passing trucks can lift your kayak or canoe off the roof racks. This is why it is important to use approved tie down straps and not rope. Straps should be inspected before each use to make sure they are not damaged or perished. Many kayaks have come off the roof due to poor tie down methods so do it once and do it properly.

Keep Things Simple: Use a Kayak Loader

One of the hardest things about going kayaking or canoeing is loading or unloading your kayak. Using a kayak loader will make it even easier to transport your kayak to the water. A kayak loader is a loading system that attaches to your vehicle and enables you to load or unload your kayak without having to manually lift it.

A kayak loader is an ideal solution to simplify the loading and unloading of your kayak with minimal effort. The electric kayak loader will help you save time and energy by allowing you to load and unload your kayak in less than a minute. The YakHoist electric kayak loader works by bolting directly to your existing roof racks and uses a 12volt electric winch connected directly to your vehicle battery. It is a great option for anyone looking to make the most out of their kayaking experience.
