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.
