    Do these compress much?

    Hi David, no, the foam does not compress very much when used with a kayak.

    Can I use this and strap down to my roof with a sunroof?

    Hello. We have used the Foam Block Kayak Carrier on vehicles with sunroofs without issue. However, we recommend checking with your vehicle's manufacturer to double-check compatibility.

    I am planning to haul a rod tube that is 9 inches in diameter and 8 feet long. Can I use these pads to cradle the tube and protect everything?

    Hi there, we do not suggest using the Kayak Carrier to secure a rod tube. It was specifically designed for larger objects and may not properly secure something as small as a rod tube.

    What is the height, 4.69 inches or 16.3 inches?

    Hi Christy, the height of the mesh carry sack is 16.3" when filled with the foam blocks and straps. The physical foam blocks themselves sit 4.69" tall when installed on the roof of the vehicle.
