Designed to supplement your traditional roof top racks for long, wind-resistant car loads.
The "TadPoleTM" - A "steel constructed" vehicle rack that actually rests on the top of your trunk, solely for the purpose of supporting "Roof-Top Carry". It's height is adjusted to match the height of your "traditional" Roof-Top Racks. A 1/2" thick, Medium-Density, Scratch Resistant, Closed-Cell Sponge, on the base of the TadPoleTM, along with vinyl coated J-hooks, & plastic Cam Buckles, help to protect your vehicle from "metal on metal" contact.
Many of us are driving smaller cars,
but still have big toys. Stand-up PaddleBoards, long Surf-Boards,
and Kayaks often extend well beyond the traditional roof rack systems. (As do ladders, lumber, pipe, conduit, and many other weekend pick-ups.)
This creates stress at the object's point of contact with the traditional rack systems. The "TadPoleTM" simply supplements your traditional roof-top system, allowing you to offset the position of the load you are carrying, which lowers the front wind-resistance you typically experience when traveling at higher speeds. It also prevents the up & down flex you see with longer objects.
If you own a Longboard, Stand-up Paddleboard,
Kayak, Wind Surfing equipment, or carry anything that hangs over your rooftop racks, you know about stress and vibration.
We really mean it when we say "We
Support Your Hobbies"
