Securing Boats to Roof racks

Nathan G.
Floyds Knobs, IN
I have had more then a few members tell me they feel like their boats wouldnt stay on the roof racks or have been loose
Many have been strapping them wrong, so wrong they risk loosing the boat.  This will damage or destroy your kayak and has the potential to KILL other motorists.
Please watch the following quick video, this is how a J style rack is strapped properly.
If you go to the bars directly, the same principal applies, DO NOT WRAP 360 degrees around a boat.  You must create a bite, and 2 points of attachment per strap.
Lets get these boats loaded and secure folks.  Read your directions with your equipment.­
As always if you have any problems you can always email me with your number and we can work out whats wrong and find a solution.
