Here is how to determine if the Sweet loader system will work for you:
First – Slide the rear crossbar on your vehicle’s roof rack as far back as possible.
Next – Place one end of your boat on the ground, and if the other end will rest on the rear crossbar without touching the vehicle, taking into consideration that our load bar will add 5 inches of height to the crossbar, our loader will work for you.
If the boat will not rest on the crossbar, you may be able to load it from the side of the vehicle. When loading from the side, you mount the base plates toward the outside of your crossbars on either the passenger or the driver side of your vehicle. Many users prefer loading from the side because it makes the boat or board easier to reach.
If you need assistance, please call or send me the following information;
1. Length and width of the boat, board, or object you will be loading.
2. Make and model of the vehicle.
3. Type of roof rack and crossbars on the vehicle. Are they flat or oval factory crossbars, round Yakima, rectangular Thule, or other?
*NOTICE – The loader system is NOT compatible with Thule Aeroblade crossbars*
