The Thule 819 Portage Canoe Carrier is a complete kit to carry one canoe on a vehicle's rooftop crossbars. Four rubberized brackets to stop the canoe from moving side to side. The 819 Portage attaches around a vehicle's crossbar using a FlipFit Bracket that is capable of fitting around nearly every crossbar profile universally. Heavy duty nylon pull-tight straps are included for securing the canoe down to each crossbar, and ratcheting nylon Quick Draw tie-down ropes are included for the bow and the stern of the boat.
