Switch over from throwing my 15 foot Kayaks onto the roof of my Corolla to my FJ. Still using the J Racks on the roof rack on the FJ. This product was easy to install and take down. Comes with a several locking or hook attachments that clip on to the roof racks. The rod pulls out to support the weight of the Kayak. Then simply left and place the other end of the Kayak into place. Unloading is just as easy. Takes a two man operation down to one person activity. Would recommend this product. Cheers Ron

The Rhino Rack will only work on the cross bars if there are no specialty racks on the roof. I have kayak racks that interfere with the hooks on the Rhino, so I had to wedge the bar in the far side runner and against the kayak rack to make it work. It does make it easier to load my kayak without help.

It was very easy to use. I can now load and unload my canoe with out any help. It's so compact it doesn't take up any space in the car. Great carrying case too!

I bought a kayak recently and I was discouraged about being able to load it and unload it from the roof of my SUV by myself. I am a fit woman, but I just didn't have the upper body strength to do it without risking damage to my vehicle (or me). The Rhino Rack is a very simple tool that makes loading and unloading possible for a single person. It basically provides a support on one end of your boat instead of having a second person so that you can lever it into position (a step stool also helps if your vehicle is tall). I use it in conjunction with my Yakima J-Low racks and it works great. The Rhino Rack is ready to use straight out of the box and it arrived in a couple of days. Great device.

I found this item very useful as I am currently having to load and unload my kayak by myself. The assembly took a bit of figuring out but not much. I like the fact that it breaks down for easy storage in the car and I really like the stabilization post that comes with it - it is especially useful on soft ground or uneven ground.

The Rhino Rack came all assembled and had the extra brackets for different car racks. Easy to assemble and easy to use.

Fits the Yakima flat bars perfectly. A great assist to get our kayak up on the racks and in the saddles.
