The Thule 847 - Outrigger II Load Assist is great for the lone paddler. This steel reenforceded aluminum bar extension provides the extra hand when loading a boat by yourself. The retractable bar extends from inside of a Thule standard rectangle load bar and provides a pivot point for loading boats on tall vehicles.
The Thule Outrigger II also helps prevent boat to vehicle contact and the integrated load stop helps to prevent the boat from sliding off when loading and unloading.
Use the Outrigger II in conjunction with the Thule 854 - Water Slide to provide further protection to your vehicle from the boat bumping, or rubbing againts the side of the vehicle while loading. Never drive with Outrigger II in extended position.
Ensure bottom of hull is clean before loading to avoid damaging boat surface. Maximimum load capacity for the Outrigger is 75 pounds. Minimum of 70 inches of bar length is required to install two Outriggers into each end of the same load bar.
