This is a stand up paddle board carrier with tie downs and it offers a two board capacity. Part number is TH811XT. One of the first things that really stand out about the SUP Shuttle is the telescoping feature that it has. At our narrowest setting where you see it now, from the top of the highest point on each of our pads we've got about 17 1/4 inches. Just by pulling out on each side, we're easily going to be able to telescope that out at any increment. There's no firm settings as we go so we can adjust it to whatever fine amount we need to. This is going to go out to 29, almost 29 1/2 inches in width. It's really going to help accommodate a wide variety of those paddle boards and maybe even if you've got it in this narrower setting, maybe more along the lines of a surfboard or something like that. Another thing that really stands out on the new SUP Shuttle are the flip fit brackets. Now these brackets are going to fit just about every crossbar that there is on the market, whether it's like an arrow style or an elliptical, a square, a round. Even your factory crossbars, really not going to have an issues getting these things put into place. You see one side is going to slip right out while the other side stays fixed. This is going to allow you to bring it down and around your bars, fit it right back into place, get it adjusted where necessary and then we'll just be able to tighten this down. Now, big surprise, it fits a Tulle crossbar. Yeah. The real neat part about this is that the Tulle crossbars require that larger gap. It's a little bit bigger than the one we've got here on the bottom. By simply rotating that bracket around, bringing it right back up, we're going to have this smaller opening located up here now so that we can fit it on let's say a square cross bar. Just going to loosen that bracket up a little bit, get it to adjust properly. Slide it right up and on and then we can tighten both of those down on a square crossbar, no problem. Just loosen these back up. Here on the round crossbar it's going to be a little bit thicker, so maybe we nee to switch over to our wider gap. We'll bring that on up and in. Same deal. No tools required on our installation. We're just going to use the knobs here. Tighten these right down. It's really going to allow us to adjust the SUP Shuttle to fit just about any crossbar that's out there on the market. Today we're going to be installing it on a set of factory crossbars so you can really get an idea of how it works on those. Those are typically very skinny and there's not a lot of room. You usually have to tighten your bolts down a very long way. We'll show you how it works. It's a really neat system there. Something else that I really like, right in the middle on both sides, no matter which side that you're going to require for your application, there's a rubberized pad that's in there. You can see that little oval shape on each one, that really grips onto that cross bar and it's going to keep them from sliding side to side. We've got the same style pad right here on the bottom. Really good gripping surface. Really going to hold our Shuttle in place for us. Now that we've gone over our features, let's take a look and see just how easy it is to really install the SUP Shuttle. Now, as we said before we're going to be using the factory crossbars and basically we're just going to extend this out to whatever width we're going to need and we'll just lay it right up here on the roof line of the vehicle, right over our front crossbar. Now the nice thing is as we're putting this down our brackets are going to come down and make contact with the vehicle, but they're encased in rubber all the way around and our knobs have a nice hard rubber surface, so really no issues with scratching or anything like that that we'll have to deal with. We'll then just bring our flip fit bracket right back and around, around the underside of the bar. We'll fit it into the slot that we saw earlier and then we'll just kind of tighten these down just a little bit for now just to keep our bracket from separating on us. Take out some of the slack that we might have. All right, position it where we want it. As you can see we've already got the rear half installed, so we just want to take a quick look to be sure we have both halves sitting in line with one another. We'll come over to the other side, get our flip fit bracket fit over here. The cool thing is they

Skeg (fin) forward and... tie the leash plug to the front of the vehicle. This helps eliminate wind lift coming up the windshield and putting less stress on the straps and the hardware. You might also have the buckle arranged so that you're pulling downwards on the strap to tighten. This gives you much better leverage and a better feeling of how tight the strap is. Composite SUP Boards use less pressure on the strap versus plastic kayaks which I crank down on because they have more wind loading while driving.

you want the skeg (fin) of the board towards the front of the vehicle.
