Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hole Enlargement Needed Product performs as advertised, however mine needed a slight adjustment to fit into the bar. The plastic stops need to fit into a hole in the outrigger bar before they will fit into the Thule bar, and ensures the stops do not allow the outrigger to slip out of the Thule bar when extended for use. I needed to ream the hole with a 9/32" drill bit, this allowed the stops to engage the hole.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can load my kayak by myself The outrigger was easy to install into roof rack. I did need to file off a bit on the inside of the cross bar so the outrigger would fit. Only took me about 5 minutes to do. Learning how to use the outrigger to load my kayak was a little more challenging. The kayak slides around on the outrigger, but didn't slide off because of the stop on the bar. I needed to learn how to balance to kayak as I was maneuvering the back end in to the J-cradle. I'm very glad I got the outrigger because now I can load and unload my kayak by myself.

I only have the two racks that run lengthways with the SUV (2015 Jeep Compass Lariat). Are the bars that run across the SUV between the racks required?

Asked by: Justan4cat
​Yes, cross bars are a separate item that are required to use this item. The Outrigger is a support to help load a kayak onto a kayak rack. It is not a kayak rack itself.
