The Thule 997 Goalpost hitch t-bar is designed for use on pick-up trucks and SUVs with class 3 or greater 2" hitch receivers. This adjustable watersport carrier mounts into your vehicle's 2 inch receiver to allow you to carry long loads such as kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and sailboards. The mast of the Goalpost has multiple mounting holes to allow you to adjust the height of the load bar, levelling it with a vehicle's roof rack. The Goalpost comes with two plastic load stops that can be used to butt up against your gear to prevent side-to-side movement.
The 997 Goalpost has multiple stabilizing features to help balance the rack. It comes with two pull-tight straps that hook into the Goalpost's mast and then hook on to your vehicle's bumper or tow loops to help stabilize the rack vertically. The bolted hitch pin that comes with the 997 Goalpost uses a flat washer and lock washer to eliminate receiver wobble. This bolt can be replaced with a Thule STL2 Snug-Tite locking hitch bolt
to lock the Goalpost into your hitch (sold separately).
