Hereís a tip for those owners who think that their Hully Rollerís are rotating on their round crossbars - thatís not what is happening. Whatís actually occurring is that the crossbar is rotating in the Yakima tower. To permanently correct the problem, drill a 1/8" pilot hole through one tower and the approximate center of the bar with the bar/tower combination mounted and centered on the vehicle. Now remove the bar/tower combination from the vehicle, disassemble, and drill out the pilot holes with a 17/64" bit. Reassemble the bar and tower with the holes aligned and install a 1/4" pin with spring wire retainer (available from farm or hardware stores) or a 1/4" bolt with a nylock nut through both tower and bar. This will prevent the bar from rotating.

Hully Rollers are a great boat loading aid, but have been known to cause stress fractures in some larger/heavier composite kayaks when tie down straps are excessively tight. For this reason, I use them in conjunction with two pairs of strategically located saddles when carrying tandems. I have the Hully Rollers mounted on a third bar supported by a trailer hitch receiver.
