Hullavator Pro 898 Load-Assist Kayak Carrier

The Hullavator Pro gives your back and shoulders some relief as it helps you lift your boat onto your vehicle's roof rack. And you won't need to stand on your running boards or a step stool to position and tie down your boat. This carrier with lift assist comes down along the side of your vehicle so that you can load your boat and strap it to the carrier at waist height. The arms of the cradle adjust to accommodate your boat's hull, and padding helps protect your boat from getting scratched. Folding arms with gas struts deliver your boat in the cradles up onto your roof for transport.

  • Hydraulic Assist - Gas struts lift and lower up to 40 lbs or about 90% of the kayaks weight
  • Waist Level Loading - Double extending arms lower the kayak up to 40 inches for faster and easier loading and unloading
  • Adjustable - Cradles slide to fit kayaks of varying widths securely
  • 8 touch points of padded support maximize protection and help hold the kayak securely in place for transportation
  • Double coated steel and aluminum construction for corrosion resistance delivers a longer product life
  • Includes bow and stern tie downs and two center straps with buckle bumpers to protect your car and ensure secure transportation of your boat
  • Accommodates one kayak up to 36 inches wide and 75 lbs.
  • Thule One-Key Lock Cylinders (Sold Separately) allow you to lock the carrier to the vehicle
  • Fits Thule SquareBar and AeroBlade (excluding AeroBlade Edge)
