Download Installation 1. Position the two saddles on the front crossbar. Loosely install the saddles with one bracket, two bolts, and two knobs for each saddle. The distance between the two assemblies should be the same width as the kayak. 2. Position the two hydro-glide assemblies on the rear crossbar. Loosely install the hydro-glide assemblies with one bracket, two bolts, and two knobs for each assembly. The distance between the two assemblies should be the same width as the kayak. 3. Rest the front of the kayak on the hydro-glide assemblies. Standing behind or alongside the kayak, lift up the rear portion of the kayak and push it forward, sliding on the hydro-glide assemblies and saddles. Make sure the kayak reaches the front saddles before you lower it. 4. Adjust the distance of the saddles and hydro-glide assemblies to the same width as the kayak, then secure the saddles and the hydro-glide assemblies by tightening the knobs you installed in steps 1 and 2. 5. Slide the kayak forward and backward until it’s level with the roof. If necessary, loosen the knob of each saddle and adjust the saddle angle to fit snugly against the kayak. Tighten each knob securely. 6. Route each strap with buckle through the buckle cover with the ribbed end facing up. 7. Route the strap under the front crossbar, and around the kayak as shown. Slide the buckle cover away from the buckle, route the strap through the buckle, and tighten the strap.
