The Yakima Kayak Stacker (8004036) is an efficient kayak rack system that can hold several kayaks by transporting them vertically, on their sides, against two non-scratch coated steel upright posts. Because the kayaks stack vertically on their sides when mounted to the Yakima Kayak Stacker, you have more room for several boats or the option to carry kayaks alongside other gear carriers without running out of car rack cross bar space.
The versatile 'arrow' top hooks make it super quick and easy to securely tie off the kayak(s). Mounts directly to round Yakima base rack crossbars and Inno Racks & Thule square load bars. Also compatible with Thule AeroBlades and virtually all factory roof rack cross bars when used in combination with a set of Yakima Universal MightyMounts or Yakima Horizontal Mighty Mounts (not included; see accessory add-ons below). Fits Whispbar Through, Flush and Rail cross bars using Yakima MightyMount 32H snap-arounds and Whispbar HD crossbars using Yakima MightyMount 34H snap-arounds. Includes pair of Kayak Stacker upright posts, two 16' heavy-duty padded straps and two bow & stern tie-down straps. For complete kayak protection, we recommend using the KayakStacker in combination with Yakima bar pads (not included; see accessory add-ons below).
