  Regarding that loading video...

Most likely it would work better to load from the rear of the car instead of the front, and take advantage of the rollers on the rear rack which are there just for loading/unloading. What most people would do using the setup shown in the video, is place a rubber-backed bath carpet on the rear window of the car, and slide the kayak on that carpet up to the rollers on the rear crossbar. There's no boat-alignment problems when sliding it on carpet, and a rubber-backed carpet won't slip. That's much simpler than the method shown in the video and does not require such precise boat alignment when sliding it up or down.
