The Thule Outrigger still seems to be a well kept secret but those
who have purchased one can attest to the greatly reduced physical
strength that is required in getting the kayak on or off the roof
rack with this device.
Outrigger is an additional bar which attaches to your normal Thule
rack. When you're ready to load or unload your kayak, you slide
the bar out away from the car so one end of your kayak is now poised
off to the side of your car. Now you only need only set one end
of the kayak on the ground and lower the other end down off the
outrigger. If you have a dolly waiting below the kayak you may never
need lift the full kayak weight.
is the reverse, one end up onto the Outrigger bar then switch ends
to lift the other end up and slide the outrigger bar in even with
the Thule rack.
probably sounds more complicated than it is but believe me, if you're
concerned about lifting the kayak weight you will find it much easier
with the Thule Outrigger.
