Proven universal hardware makes it easy to transfer the carrier from vehicle to vehicle. Includes one pair of Quick Draw ratcheting tie downs, two straps and buckle protectors.

I just got the Glide N Set two weeks ago but I am very pleased. It has made loading my 69 lb. tandem rec kayak doable by myself on the top of my SUV. The saddles attached right to my factory rack and are easy to adjust. Comes with nice tie straps and bow and stern tie downs (which I have not had to use yet). It takes up more room on the top than the J racks but it's much easier to load I believe. Feels very secure when it's all tightened. I would give it a 10 except that I feel I need to replace the Thule wingnuts with something that requires a tool in case someone tries to steal it. Thule should give you the option of either way (quick adjust or security).
We have this set installed on Thule square bars. Installation is quick and easy. There is no movement - the set is very secure. I like the Hydro-Glides - I have to say I prefer them to the Hully Rollers that we also own. The kayak moves pretty effortlessly onto the Hydro-Glides which are installed at the rear of the vehicle. The Set-To-Go saddles are on the front, and they're adjustable, so you get good contact with the kayak. Definitely recommended.
