Thule Hull-A-Port XT 848

The new Hull-a-port XT is a versatile J Cradle design from Thule that has a trick or two up its sleeve. Due to its innovative clamping design it will fit Wingbars, Wingbar evo and Squarebars straight out of the box and can be fitted in seconds. The XT can be used in J cradle form for easy loading of a single kayak and looks great next to a roofbox or with two sets fitted back to back.

However usefully it can also be set vertically to make a kayak stacker on the reverse side and thus can transport 2 kayaks which might not otherwise fit side by side on the roof.

Once back home the Thule Hull-a-Port XT folds down flush with the loading tray so you can get your car in the garage easily! Comes with all mounting hardware needed for one kayak including 2 x straps and tie downs.

Please note the Hull-a-Port XT is not suitable for Pro-bars or Slidebars.


  • Carry up to two kayaks due to the dual position design that transforms from a J-cradle to two boat stacker position
  • Integrated StrapCatch for easy strap management when loading kayak
  • Upright folds flat when not in use
  • Fully assembled out of the box
  • Locks to load bars with Thule's One Key System Lock Cylinders (sold separately)
