The Yakima DeckHand is a proven paddler's favorite for hauling kayaks on the roof of a car. Includes all the necessary tie-down equipment to securely load your kayak for the next road trip.

  • Simple in design and easy to load, the flexible shape of the DeckHand lets the saddles conform to the hull of your boat for a super-secure, full-contact carry.
  • Cradles are felt-padded protecting the hull of your boat.
  • Attaching the DeckHand to your crossbars couldn't be easier with Yakima's tool-free installation.
  • DeckHand saddles are sold in pairs. Combine with rollers or additional saddles for a custom set-up (sold separately).
  • Two pairs of saddles, or an additional hand roller, is needed to securely hold one kayak.
  • Includes premium HeavyDuty strap and Bow/Stern Tie Down.
  • Locks to base rack with the SKS Lock Cores for added security, locks sold separately.
