    Love it!

    The Yakima Showdown Load Assist is great. It allows us to easily load our kayaks to our Subaru Forester.

    Look and feel is very good. Easy to install

    Tried today. So far no issues - works as advertised. Look and feel is very good.

    Easy to install. I used "Yakima Showdown" with "53” Universal Locking Roof Rack Crossbars by Vault" - both could be added and removed very quickly on Toyota 4Runner 2016.

    Kayak load/unload/strap is much faster and convenient now. I even can't compare how much easier it was to load / unload my Wilderness 17' kayak vs. my old "Yakima HullyRollers" and "Yakima DeckHand Kayak Saddles" set. (There is nothing wrong with these two - is just much easier for one person to use Yakima Showdown.)

    It could be five stars but I don't like bow and stern tiedown lines hooks - they should be some sort of snap spring clip carbine hooks - I really felt uncomfortable and insecure with the open hooks.
