Probably more flexible and accommodating than your paddling buddies, the Yakima JayLow dual-function kayak rack is your new best friend. The JayLow kayak cradle and stacker system allows you to carry one boat in J-cradles, or convert the rack to carry two boats stacked on their sides if you decide to bring your old best friend along. The JayLow convertible kayak rack adjusts from an angled J-style cradle to a vertical stacker model using a simple integrated cam lever, and the carrier installs tool-free to round, square, or factory cross bars. The built-in cradle ramp makes loading boats quick and easy, and the cradles also fold flat for improved aerodynamics and clearance when not in use. Heavy-duty cross bar straps and bow/stern tie-downs are included, while the addition of a Yakima SKS 2-pack of locks (sold separately) allows the carrier to be locked to the vehicle rack.
  • Adjustable kayak rack converts with an easy cam lever to carry one kayak in J-cradles or two kayaks in a stacker system

Good Rack with Outstanding Service from ORS
August 4, 2016
Rack fit as advertised but encountered a problem prior to loading. When I attempted to lock the pivot bar into place it failed to engage the locking mechanism which would allow the yak to pivot. Called ORS and explained to them and they had a replacement on the way same day. The rack itself seems stable as advertised but even though Yakima indicates you can mount two kayaks I don't feel quite so comfortable with more than one. I plan to buy another JayLow to attach to the other side of my 4Runner to accommodate a second. Thanks John for fantastic customer service!
Pros:
Easy installation. Rubber mounting surfaces provide some protection to the vehicle and neoprene-like material gives protection as well as prevents slipping of the yak. Securing straps on front and back allow for a much more rigid/stable ride.
Cons:
Plastic material used for the locking arm not very durable.

Jaylows worked as recommended! The pair of Jay-lows on my Subaru Outback installed & handled our ocean touring kayaks with ease. Thank You for taking the time to assist with this purchase!!
