5Swagman J-CraddleApr 09, 2010
By P. Walser
Works great. Very easy to load and unload kayak. Holds kayak better than flat on rack. A part was broken when received, but I called the manufacturer and they sent a new part for free the next day. Very happy with the price and performance. Just as good as Thule or Yakima.

3okay, but wish I'd have spent the extra money on YakimasNov 06, 2011
By Thomas W. Hutchison
I thought I'd save 20 or 30 bucks by purchasing this item rather than another set of Yakima J racks. Since I now have one set of each, I can compare.
--These are durable, thick metal. But very heavy.
--The hardware was not suitable for my Yakima crossbars, so I had to spend another 10 bucks on hardware.
--BIG NEGATIVE: The bolts and nuts are not rust-proof. So if you are using these around salt water, you'll need to replace them with stainless bolts.
--Also, some of the plastic coating is peeling off the metal, after just two seasons.

Next time, in fact next spring, I'm going to replace them with Yakimas. Should have done that in the first place.
The Yakimas are much lighter, plenty durable, and it takes 1/3 as long to mount them on my rack. My Yakimas are 5 years old and look newer.

5Superior to ThuleSep 28, 2010
By Gr8ful_k "Gr8ful ken"
Very pleased with these. They cradle both of my kayaks more securely than my Thule. The bracket is attached to the cradle with 3/8" bolts rather than the hollow 1/4" rivets Thule uses. Bracket attaches to the bars with 3/8 bolts, 1/4" on the Thule. They are even easier to attach to and seem more secure on Thule load bars than Thule's own product does. The tie down straps porvided by thule are better than the one here, but these are sufficient.

5Great J-Racks and Customer ServiceJun 10, 2011
By R.L. Cochran
I now own two sets of these Swagman Kayak J-Racks. They seem to be very sturdy and well made. Certainly comparable to brands like Thule.

In addition, when a nut on one of the racks began to rust after only one season, Swagman quickly sent me replacement hardware free of charge, and appoligized for the difficutly. That is very good Customer Service!

1not universal fitSep 01, 2010
By L. Lind
Rack seems solidly-built, but the fit is far from universal. There was no way to make this fit my Ford Escort wagon's factory rack. Even if it had fit, I probably would have returned it, as it was too time-consuming to take on and off, and even using the shorter bolts, the bolts stuck out the bottom and scratched the roof of my car.
