The TadPoleTM, and its presence, should in NO WAY change or alter the requirements of your existing system. If you find there is a contradiction, you are confused about the instructions, or the instructions for the TadPoleTM negate instructions for your Roof-Top system, DO NOT USE the TadPoleTM.

Some types of kayaks & canoes are very heavy.  While the TadPole is capable of supporting their weight, your trunk lid may not be. Use caution when loading heavier objects such as these, and monitor the top of your trunk for any malformation or indentation.  This is a sign that the object you are carrying is too heavy for your vehicle type.
