Kayaks and Canoes
Lifting kayaks onto the roof of a car is a challenge, especially if you are alone. Properly securing them also takes longer and is more strenuous than it should be when it is difficult to access.
With Dropracks, it is possible to load the kayaks on your own without worrying about physical strain and the risk of damaging the car. You can walk around the kayak(s) in the lowered loading position and make sure they are securely fastened with the loading straps before setting off.
Lifting bikes, especially heavier electric bikes, onto the roof of a car is associated with risk. It's easy to accidentally get a pedal stripe in the paint. On the Dropracks Sport, you can fit four bike carriers next to each other, if you mount them alternating back and forth, lengthwise - backwards.
Lifting a roof tent on and off the roof of a car on traditional roof racks can be a real strain, even when you are two people. With Dropracks, this becomes significantly easier. In addition, it is significantly easier to "slip" the roof tent on and off as needed, so you don't have to drive around with the roof tent more than necessary.
Ski box/roof boxes
In the winter, it is well known that cars often get extra dirty from snow, dust, and road salt. With Dropracks on the roof, you don't have to balance with dirty shoes in either the door frame, on the wheels, or on the trailer hitch. Lower the entire roof box down to a comfortable height without getting your clothes dirty from the car, or worrying about the zippers scratching the paint on the car.
Safety in Mind
Dropracks features automatic stainless steel locks to securely hold the rack in place, and has a visual and audible indication that the locks are properly engaged. The release buttons are large and can easily be pressed even while wearing gloves or mittens.
The integrated lifting crank has adjustable momentum to make sure you can lift heavy loads without strain on your body.
Additionally, the Dropracks Sport is tested and approved in accordance with international standards for roof racks, ensuring that it is built to withstand the toughest conditions.

it works with my old Thule fixings. the only problem i have is when you wind it out it only comes halfway down, so have to pull it and wind the handle at the same time
This is one rack which truly makes the task of loading/off loading our two seakayaks ultra convenient. No longer do we have to pull out step ladders to hoist our boats onto the roof of our Volvo. It certainly makes for quick time spent at the launch site especially during busier days. I’ve only used it once but have already had curious onlookers approach me asking me questions about the rack and its operation. The devil is in the details and I believe that the folks at Dropracks have a winner on their hands.
Just now designing and fabricating a loading system for recumbent Trike. The rack works well.
Easy to install - fits ‘21 Grand Cherokee fixed mounting points. And easy to operate, just as advertised. We’ get thumbs-up from those who watch us load and unload our bikes!

I got a confirmation mailed on July 9 and am still waiting for the delivery. The delivery company has messed something up in customs. I hope to get it before the summer.
Per Einar Lillejordet
I used to load things into the car. Now most of it is on the roof :)
Svend Olav Claussen
The roof rack works great, BUT be aware that you cannot strap around the roof rack (like on a normal roof rack), so you have to have eyebolts or other fastening for straps in the t-slot. If I had received this information on the website before purchase, I would without a doubt have given 5 stars. The product is recommended. The delivery was painless. Assembly was simple.
Liv Kristin Rabe Selvag
Very pleased. With this rack, even old, rheumatic ladies manage to get the kayak on the roof!!
Bjørn Erik Pedersen
Pleasant people and super service! The droprack was easy to assemble with good instructions and a great video. The decision to bring an assistant to help with assembly was wise. The foam crib for kayaks works perfectly. Have been on a trip with 2 kayaks. The rack is solid with no rattling of any kind and no noticeable wind noise. Bought a Thule stand that is fixed to the rack and foam holder. The foam holder makes it easy to use the eyebolts and to transport other things as well when necessary. We are looking forward to many nice trips with the kayaks on the roof now.
Tested out over the weekend. Worked perfectly for Inka's heavy aluminum canoe!

I am over 70 years old, but would like to continue paddling. Therefore, it became important for me to find a way to get the kayak onto the roof of the car on my own, so that I can go on a trip alone. With Dropracks and a small trolley I fasten far back on the kayak, it became possible. Now I never lift more than half the weight of the kayak a meter up. Dropracks do the rest. The kayak can be attached easily without me having to climb on car wheels or step on seats, and it stays in place without any wobble or rattle. If I paddle with a friend, there is room for his kayak as well. Then we lift the kayaks together. No difficult and high lifts above the head. Only up into Dropracks that are cranked down. I've had Dropracks since they came on the market, and as a retiree I've had many trips in my kayak throughout the year. I see the fact that I can also transport other things on the car roof with Dropraks as a bonus. Now I can if I need to.

Easier with everything that goes on the roof, would call it a simpler life
Excellent product, used daily
Jon Erik Brinchmann
Absolutely fantastic invention. This has enabled us to use our canoe much more, and saved both our backs :)
