With a set of Yakima HullyRollers on the back of your car's
roof rack, you can easily position your kayak on your car
top, even by yourself. When the boat is in place, strap it
down securely right to the HullyRollers. (You'll need
either a second set of HullyRollers, or other saddle mounts
such as the Mako Saddles (sold separately) to support the
front of the boat.)
Pivoting rollers smoothly slide the kayak on and off
the vehicle's top.
The U-shaped rollers fit any boat shape.
Rollers lock in place and do not roll when locked
The rollers are padded with Dynaflex™, a soft,
durable composite material, for sure grip on your boat and
Attach easily to crossbars. For factory racks use
Yakima MightyMounts (sold separately).
Includes one 16' Yakima padded Heavy Duty Strap and one
Bow/Stern Tie Down.
I use the Hully rollers with the universal mounts and the Mako saddles. I have a 17' sea kayak and transport with a '97 Explorer. This combination makes loading and off loading considerably easier than universal foam blocks previously used. Just came back from 180 mile trip to the Outer Banks and had no problems with transport. All the needed straps were supplied with product(s).

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
First of all I have these "Helly Rollers" yes that's right the rollers from Hell. I have tightened them so tight on the round bars that they are about to break. They apparently forgot to install the sealed bearings (hint, hint) so mine don't roll very well or not at all. Sometimes the one on the right or left side will stop rolling completely, the entire assembly will lock up, pivot over and pitch my kayak off of my truck. Thank God thus far I have managed to catch my my kayak before it hit the ground. I own six kayaks and thought that I would buy one pair and give them a try. At least my Saddles work beautifully and the Rack System is nice too.
