An economical alternative to more permanent car rooftop kayak racks, the Yakima Universal Kayak Carrier Foam Blocks (8004053) also include a pair of heavy-duty straps and a pair of bow & stern tie-down straps for a complete kayak transport solution. The Yakima Universal Kayak Carrier Foam Blocks mount directly to all styles of aftermarket car rack crossbars (including all Yakima, Whispbar, Thule, Inno crossbars etc.) and virtually all factory roof racks. Additionally, the kayak blocks can be used directly on vehicles with naked rooftops that have no rack system crossbars. While not as convenient as more permanent kayak carrier models, the foam blocks are a solid solution if transporting a kayak short distances or intending to carry a kayak infrequently. Simply place the foam blocks onto your car's crossbars (or place directly on car roof top if your vehicle has no crossbars), load boat onto the blocks and then strap down the boat firmly in place using the 2 included heavy-duty straps. Also secure the kayak to the front and rear of the vehicle using the included bow & stern straps.

These premium car top kayak carrier foam blocks work with all styles of kayaks - recreational / sea kayaks, tandems, Sit-On-Tops, whitewater / river kayaks etc. - and feature laminated, super-grippy, anti-skid padding to simultaneously protect your boat and your vehicle's finish. Simple design and easy to install. Also includes a handy mesh storage bag. Easy to follow instructions included. Yakima Racks Lifetime Warranty!

Additional Yakima Foam Block Kits also available:

Yakima Kayak Foam Blocks Standard Kit
fits Yakima round cross bars & naked rooftops only
Yakima Canoe Foam Blocks Universal Kit
fits all styles of cross bars & naked rooftops also

Needs Some Instructions

this Yakima kayak foam blocks review by JJBP
vehicle year/make/model: 2001 VW Jetta
item(s) transported: kayak

I bought the foam blocks carrier to transport a kayak home from a store I bought the kayak at. I had a very difficult time figuring out the numerous tie down straps. There were no instructions except for a picture on the carrying bag which were pretty much useless. Having never transported a kayak before and not ever having used a carrier such as these foam pads, I was terribly frustrated. I still do not know which straps go where! And when I got home the kayak's shape was distorted because of the way I strapped it down...took about an hour to get it back to its original shape. I am sure a simple set of instructions describing what each type of strap was designed for would have made everything go smoothly. It was 95 degrees out and I was alone which made the experience even worse. I would only recommend buying this if one has experience in transport tie downs or Yakama includes some simple instructions.

UPDATE: We now offer Yakima Universal Kayak Foam Block instructions.


Very Imperfect System

this Yakima kayak foam blocks review by Leslie Herbert
vehicle year/make/model: 2004 Mazda Tribute
item(s) transported: Dagger 2 person kayak

This "rack" is really just 2 pieces of foam and a bunch of tie downs. The concept makes sense and the directions are okay, but it doesn't work well for our 2 person Dagger kayak. The foam compresses quite a bit and continues to do so over time so the straps keep loosening. Also, the kayak is somewhat flexible so tightening it down deforms the kayak too. I can't use this for anything but taking the kayak to the 2 local lakes in town. I'm disappointed.

ORDERING NOTES
If loading kayak from the rear of the vehicle we highly recommend the Thule 854 Water Slide Mat (not included; see accessory add-ons above) for simultaneously protecting your vehicle and also gaining extra assistance when loading and unloading a boat.

This carrier mounts directly to virtually all factory racks, Whispbar and Yakima base rack cross bars, all styles of Thule Racks load bars, Inno Car Rack crossbars etc.

Also works on vehicles with no rooftop rack. For this configuration, simply place foam blocks on the car roof top and then run the straps through the car interior by opening up the car doors and looping the straps through the inside. When tightened, the straps will be snug against the car interior ceiling and you can open and close the doors without interference.

Pair of universal Yakima Kayak Foam Blocks, two heavy-duty straps and pair of bow & stern tie-down straps with hooks included. Everything needed for hauling one boat. Handy storage bag also included.

We also highly recommend the Yakima BoatLocker, Kayak Lasso, SteelCore locking straps or the Lashlock kayak lock system (all sold separately; see accessory add-ons above) to protect your boat from theft.

QUICK ORDERING SOLUTION
Alternatively, we suggest using our easy Yakima Racks automated fit guide to quickly order the correct Yakima multi-purpose vehicle base rack system and/or kayak carrier attachments if you don't have one already installed:
