(very similar to 847 Outrigger II and universally fits factory racks and any aftermarket car rack crossbars)

MADE IN THE U.S.A.
The Thule 847 Outrigger II Lift Assist features an innovative design that makes it very easy for one person to load and unload a canoe or kayak from the roof rack. Great for the lone paddler, the extension bar provides the extra hand when loading a boat by yourself. Attaches to Thule standard base rack square load bars and Inno Racks square crossbars only. Use in combination with a roof mounted kayak or canoe carrier.

  • Retractable bar extends from inside load bar and provides pivot point for loading boats on tall vehicles, including vans, trucks, SUV's and wagons.
  • Lift one end of the boat onto the Thule 847 Outrigger II extension bar, lift the other end onto the roof mounted canoe or kayak carrier and now you can easily re-position the first end onto the canoe or kayak carrier.
  • Thule 847 Outrigger II allows for full length of base rack load bar to be utilized for other accessories.
  • Prevents unwanted boat to vehicle contact.
  • Strength and great looks are provided by steel bar that is encased with aluminum.
  • Integrated load stop prevents boat from sliding off bar when loading and unloading.
  • Fits Thule standard square load bars and Inno Racks square cross bars only.
  • Easy-to-follow Thule 847 Outrigger II instructions included.
  • Thule Racks Lifetime Warranty!

» all Thule 847 Outrigger II discussion posts


Alan Turner asks - Can you please tell me the length of the bar extension?

ORS Racks Direct crew answers - The 847 is 25-1/4" fully extended. FYI, the Yakima BoatLoader (similar product made by Yakima Racks) is 26" fully extended.

Chris asks - Is this easily removed (theft concerns) or can it be locked down?

b.barber responds - Doesn't offer a locking mechanism. I will say though that I've been using the 847 for years and never any problems. Most likely because it integrates so well into the end of the crossbar that it doesn't look like a stand alone accessory.

John Cutler states - I use two of these (one on the front bar and the other on the rear) as a handy partial extension when I'm carrying 2 canoes side by side. The 847 has a load limit of 100 lbs.

Don R. asks - How much different is the original 847 from the 847 II?

RACKDAWG answers - There actually was no original 847, instead the 847 II replaced the 547 Outrigger. The new design on the 847 II is a great improvement over the 547, which didn't insert into the load bar. Instead it clamped around the outside. Much more clumsy and less integrated looking than the 847 II.

Linda12333 - Does the Thule Outrigger for loading kayaks work on the 2011 Subaru Outback factory rack cross rails?

ORS Crew answers - No, it only works on the Thule square load bars and Inno square bars (it inserts into the end of the load bar). You would need to attach the Thule 450 Crossroad base rack system to your 2011 Subaru Outback side rails. Then you could use the Outrigger on one of the 450 Crossroad square load bars. However, the Inno INA453 Kayak Lifter is very similar to the Outrigger II and fits factory rack crossbars.

Caroline R. asks - What is the overall length of the 847 Outrigger? I want to put one on either side of my load bars, and want to know how long a bar I need for both to fit inside the bars when they are fully retracted?

ORS Crew answers - The overall length of the Thule 847 Outrigger is 36". However, each only inserts into one of the cross bars. So the easist would be to install one of the Outriggers in the front crossbar on one side and the other Outrigger on the rear crossbar on the other side.

Evan asks - Will this product work for canoes too?

ORS Crew answers - Yes this works equally well for canoes as for kayaks. It extends out far enough for plenty of room to place one end of the canoe onto the bar and then lift the other side of the canoe easily up into place on the canoe rack. Outrigger then retracts into stored position inside the cross bar.
