A pair of kayak racks and 2 mounting brackets, 4 screws, 4 nuts and 2 straps. 2 straps are used to secure kayak/canoe to the kayak racks. You still need extra long straps to secure both front and rear of your kayak/canoe to your vehicle which are NOT included.
This is a good, solid rack for kayak mounting. It mounts fine on SUVs as well as small sedans with modest roof curvature. The straps anchor the kayak securely, and we didn't need a front or rear tether strap. If your crossbars are "square" you should make sure their dimensions match the recess dimension on the kayak mount.
They are very easy to install and remove and fold very nicely for storage. The adjustable angle for carrying a kayak works great. I had to experiment a bit before finding the right angle and the foam on the bars are great padding for your boat. I do recommend getting new and tighter locking straps that those provided.
I was a little concerned that I purchased the wrong carrier. ASG was very quick to answer my email and send me additional instructions. The fit is perfect. I do have a sunroof and the bolt sticks down too far. It's an easy fix ... looks great!
These were easy to install and are easily locked into different positions. Nice padding on the carriers to protect your kayak and give you a quiet ride.
