I'm Abigail Scott, an author, adventurer, and mother of three. When I'm not navigating the beautiful chaos of motherhood, you can find me tackling the turbulent waters as a professional whitewater kayaker or scaling impressive rock faces as a climbing guide. The rush of adrenaline, whether from kayaking or climbing, is a feeling I cherish deeply. But the thrill doesn't stop there; I capture the breathtaking allure of nature through my lens as a professional photographer. And when I'm not submerged in the wild, my software engineering skills amplify my outdoor pursuits, allowing me to harness technology in unique ways. Through my writings, whether articles or blog posts, I share not just my adventures but my heart, hoping to spark a flame of inspiration in others to break boundaries and experience the world's wonders.

So you get 4 total units enough for 2 kayaaks, correct?

You only get 2. I ordered these think I was getting 4. When I contacted the seller I was told the have a 30 day return policy. They are very misleading and would not recommend

Does each set of racks come with 2 straps? Meaning there would be 4 total straps with this set?Thanks!

They are false advertising!! It’s not “misleading”. They state that is has 2 “pair” and in the description it says it comes with 4 “j bars” and can carry 2 kayaks. They seem to be only sending 1 set now and therefore this a total false advertising situation. They are straight up lying!! I ordered and only got 1 set for 1 kayak!

Need to know how wide a load bar the racks will accommodate (distance between the bolts that hold the rack to the load bar) or if anyone has mounted them successfully to a Taurus GL wagon factory rack.

The U shape mounting area is 1 1/2" wide.. the distance between the bolts is 3 1/2".. I bought pool noodles and covered the padding on the racks because they leave a black mark... Still yet for the price you can't beat them.. I just hauled from Tulsa Okla. to Grand Isle La. with mine and the worked fine

How do the j rack set on the rack, both kayaks set in or out?

It will depend on the width of your vehicle. I can’t carry two kayaks leaning in toward each other. The rear end of my vehicle won’t allow for the j racks to be mounted that way. I can fit two with them both leaning the same direction. More work lifting the one kayak, but that’s what my vehicle allows
