The Thule 849000 Hull-a-port Aero is an innovative kayak carrier that is safe, stylish, easy to use. The Hull-a-port Aero is a J-style kayak carrier that mounts directly into the top T-track of the Thule WingBars, Thule Aerobars, Yakima Jetstreams, or certain OEM roof racks.
Folds flat when not in use
The Hull-a-port can be folded into a flat position while not in use. This is done using the release handle located at the front of rack. Folding the rack down gives you better access into parking garages or other low clearance areas, however you do always want to keep in mind the additional height added to your vehicle by having a roof rack.
