Roof Racks -  Carrier Bars - Hitch Rack - Truck Rack - Storage Racks

Carry Canoe, Kayak, Boat, Ladder, Etc. on your vehicle's roof; storage rack for wall.


See the telescoping loading bar feature that makes loading a canoe so much easier: VIDEO CLICK HERE



Carrier Bar, extremely high quality and versatile:   Made of aluminum and stainless steel with padded top surface and telescoping ends (next picture) for wide loads and to make it easier for one person to load a heavy canoe or similar long object.  300-lb. capacity (subject to roof's own capacity).

  Available with suction cup feet (picture at left) or rain-gutter clamp feet (4th picture down).  



Easy one-person loading using retractable extension bars (included).   Inside each end of the carrier bar is a telescoping extension bar.  Pull it out up to 20" -- now you can load a heavy canoe more easily by yourself.   Lift one end of the canoe and angle it onto the extended bar.   Walk around to other end of canoe, lift it and swing it up onto the other bar.  Now slide the canoe over to center it over the vehicle and slide the extension bars back inside the carrier bars.   CONTINUED NEXT PANEL

Or, for wide loads, the extension bars can be left extended as much as you need them (max = 20" 20" =40").   The unextended length of the bar is 65" (or you can request 53" size).

For use on Truck caps we can provide wheel-well hooks and straps for the suction cup style rack or "false gutters" for the clamp-on type pictured above.  False gutters are little low-profile bracket you bolt onto the cap and then the clamp-on rack clamps into the false gutters. 

Picture at left illustrates rain-gutter-clamping-feet alternative to suction-cup feet.  Email  to select foot style and unextended length (65" or 53").  Suction-cup bar is secured to vehicle with straps (included) going through door frames and across inside.  In a van, rear strap can go through windows if they open or down to padded hooks in wheel wells ($25/pair addit).

Longer Loading Bar:  Would you like one long loading bar, coming out just one end, instead of shorter ones coming out both ends?    Can do!   A customer wrote us and said he needed a way to load a 200-lb. dinghy that's 4-feet wide by himself.   Our supplier made up a special 4-foot loading bar and customer was delighted.  Says now he also can load full sheets of plywood with ease.  The key to loading his boat safely is to temporarily secure the bow to the rack after it is resting on the bar before lifting the stern.  That way it can't slide and get out of control. Modify one carrier bar to have long, single loading bar  $15 (must be ordered at the time you order your carrier bar).  BUY NOW.
