BUT - I am still unclear as to whether you want to just add the saddles or alternative directly to the Subaru cross bars (which these won't work for) or purchase the full independent system including towers and third party cross bars (for which these devices will work).
Both of these require that you go to the local home improvement store to buy some plumbing insulation to tape around the bars when using them for composite boats. Not a big deal.
The older ones that we have - still can be found if you dig around -
The current ones from Yakima, which work fine for sea kayaks except more of the bar is sticking up because long boats are narrower.
