They may have an adjustable rack suitable for your Prius

Sold widely here in Canada, and available online:

You can check out the reviews on Amazon (including from some Prius owners)

Basically, they're more than adequate for carrying kayaks (much better than foam blocks and straps), but the locks (included with bars and feet) are not the best. I have a set to put on my Corolla, and they work fine for carrying two plastic ~50lbs, 12ft Kayaks
