Please the river rats when you fix a pair of the Yakima 86 Inch Round Bars to your rig. These bars attach to your car or truck’s roof with a Yakima tower system (sold separately), and give you a seven-foot-wide platform to stack and tie-down boats when you and your wild whitewater friends shuttle to and from the river. These large bars fit best on trucks and RVs (but can work with any auto), and they provide a strong base to protect your roof and carry just about anything you can attach.

These bars do exactly what they are supposed to - they stay stuck on your roof rack so you can tie things to them! I've used these many times to carry canoes or kayaks, even in some pretty nasty terrain. I have lost an end cap or two, but that's no big deal. I will say that I still don't quite understand the high price for metal bars with a plastic wrapper... oh well.
Just what I needed
These bars are perfect for carrying two canoes or kayaks.
Very tuff. these have worked great for me!

bars are nice, strong like bull. It would be nice to have the end caps with the bars or buy in addition. Could not find the endcaps for the 86" in your product guide.
