How to tie a kayak to a roof rack

Whether you're an existing Toyota owner or new to the family, we advise having your Toyota Genuine [P4] Roof Racks and our specialised kayak carrier installed by a professional in accordance with the detailed fitting instructions specific to your vehicle.

This three step guide will then help ensure safe and simple transportation for your kayak.

1. Placement of Kayak on Roof Rack with Rubber Support

As an essential accessory, the four rubber supports play a crucial role in providing stability and cushioning for your kayak. Carefully position the kayak on the roof rack, aligning it with the rubber supports to prevent any potential scratches or damage.

2. Securing the Kayak with Tie-Down Ropes

Loop tie-down ropes around the kayak and the roof rack's cross bars, ensuring a snug fit. Tighten the ropes to secure the kayak in place. Check for stability and adjust as needed.

3. Safety Check

Before hitting the road, give your setup a final check. Ensure the kayak is centred, secure, and properly aligned. Test the stability of the kayak by gently rocking it side to side. If it remains stable, you're all set for your adventure.

Early memories are of Mum and Dad hitching a caravan to the Cruiser to take all five boys for trips across Australia. Either the Gunbarrel Highway, up to Cape York or through the Kimberley. Over the decades, a third generation joined in to enjoy the adventures too. We started the family business in 1962 and have enjoyed sharing our travels with Toyota all the way through.

With roof racks and other Toyota genuine accessories [P4], I’ve seen first hand how much testing goes into building them. Like with the amount of sensors used for data collection during vibration testing for bull bars. All for the highest standard of quality and integration with the vehicles. And in the real world we’ve put them through some of the most extreme conditions Australia has to offer, which is why we’ve the utmost confidence in their safety, longevity and ease of use.

We’ve put the racks through the blazing heat of the Canning Stock Route, freezing nights in the highlands, and rugged inclines and declines of the Old Telegraph Track, all while being close to the maximum weight limit. They’ve never let us down, and we’ve travelled with the utmost peace of mind knowing support is available from so many Toyota dealerships around the country.

In recent years I have seen a huge growth in the popularity of kayaking, which is great, especially on the environmental side of things. Kayaks open up areas where powered boats can’t go, and we’ve been fortunate to experience this from paddling the coves of Noosa’s National Park, up to the Everglades, and more remote country rivers and creeks. There’s nothing like immersing yourself into these beautiful areas and enjoying everything your own adventure may lead to.
