Thule K-Guard 840

The Thule K-Guard Kayak carrier a premium kayak carrier from Thule designed for transporting a single kayak securely and safely on a car roof rack. This is the first kayak carrier that locks to the roof rack and locks the kayak to the carrier. The K-Guard is shaped specifically to carry narrow Sea Kayaks and Touring Kayaks. Our sister companies are the leading kayak and canoe supplies in the UK - please contact us to check that the K-Guard is suitable for your kayak.

The K-Guard consists of two padded aluminium cradles and a pair of lockable roof rack straps. The cradles are tiltable for easiest possible loading and unloading of the kayak.

Compatible with standard Thule SquareBars, AeroBars, SlideBars and WingBars. All fittings required including T track bolts are supplied as standard.

Most Thule roof bar systems are wide enough to transport 2 touring or sea kayaks side by side using the K Guards. You must check the roof weight capacity stated by your vehicle manufacturer.

For maximum security the kayak's bow and stern should be secured to the vehicle and for this we recommend the Thule Quick Draw Bow & Stern Line.
