The Maine Roll On Canoe - Kayak Loader<br>for use with Yakima Racks & Thule Racks

THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED BY THE MANUFACTURER AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE
We highly recommend the Yakima ShowBoat Canoe-Kayak Roller Lift Assist as an excellent alternative.


The "Maine Roll On" is the NEW solution to the OLD problem of easily loading a canoe or kayak by YOURSELF!

It is a unique roof rack roller attachment for easy and hassle-free loading of your canoe, kayak or any type of roof rack mounting watercraft. The Maine Roll On attaches directly onto the rear cross bar of Thule Racks and Yakima Racks. It does NOT work with factory racks. The nearly frictionless roller system allows one person to easily load or unload a canoe, kayak, pram dinghy or other small craft by themselves. The soft covering of the roller eliminates scratching of the craft being loaded. Now you can enjoy paddle sports whether or not you have someone to help you load your canoe, kayak or other watercraft onto your roof rack.

  • The Maine Roll On attaches directly onto the rear load bar of Thule Racks and Yakima Racks. It does NOT work with factory racks. If you do not already have a multi-purpose base roof rack system from Yakima or Thule, then CLICK HERE to view our Fit Guides where you can find and order the correct base roof rack for your car, truck or van.
  • The Maine Roll On is available in three lengths - 42 inches, 45 inches and 56 inches - sufficient for virtually all types of roof mount watercraft.
  • Use in combination with heavy duty straps (see accessories below) and bow-stern tie down straps (see accessories below).
  • Easy-to-follow instructions included.

The Maine Roll On canoe-kayak loader system consists of a galvanized steel tubing roller that is covered with a low density (soft) PVC covering that protects the item being loaded from scratches. The roller has glass filled nylon axles pressed into each end, that provide a lubrication free bearing with the brackets. The mounting brackets are made of die cast high strength aluminum. Mounting hardware is zinc plated. The Maine Roll On is available in three lengths - 42 inches, 45 inches and 56 inches - sufficient for virtually all types of roof mount watercraft. The Maine Roll On attaches directly onto the rear cross bar of Thule Racks and Yakima Racks. It does NOT work with factory racks.

MAINE ROLL-ON INSTRUCTIONS

Place the roller in the "Load Station" (see image directly below). This will cause the roller to stand above the rear horizontal bar of the rack. Then simply approach your vehicle and place the bow of the canoe on the roller. For sea kayaks and other items over 18 feet, use of the "High Load Station" is suggested.

Move to the stern and pick up your canoe/kayak.

Slowly walk forward, causing the canoe/kayak to roll effortlessly onto the rack.

When in position, lower the canoe/kayak onto the front roof rack cross bar.

Lastly, lift the stern slightly and position roller in the "Carry Station" (see "Load Stations" image above) which places your canoe/kayak in full contact with the rear roof rack cross bar, and stows the roller out of the way. This is a good time to double check on safety and check to make sure your roof rack as well as The "Maine Roll On" are safely secured to your vehicle. Safely secure your canoe/kayak with heavy duty straps (see accessories below) and bow-stern tie down straps (see accessories below) and be on your way!

RAVE MAINE ROLL-ON REVIEWS

"It's the easiest way for one person to load a canoe I have ever seen! No question about it! At the end of a long day guiding, "The Maine Roll On" is a Godsend!"
-Pat Keliher, Registered Maine Guide & Orvis Guide of the Year

"The simplest canoe loader I have seen during my 26 years with Old Town Canoe. Yours works!"
-Lou Gilman, Retired Director of Research & Development for Old Town Canoe Company

ORDERING NOTES
The Maine Roll On attaches directly onto the rear cross bar of Thule Racks and Yakima Racks. It does NOT work with factory racks. If you do not already have a multi-purpose base roof rack system from Yakima or Thule, then CLICK HERE to view our Fit Guides where you can find and order the correct base roof rack for your car, truck or van.

The Maine Roll On is available in three lengths - 42 inches, 45 inches and 56 inches - sufficient for virtually all types of roof mount watercraft.
