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.

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.

Most 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.
