Thule 854 Water Slide

SOLD OUT

Product Details

A technical mat that protects the top of your vehicle as you load a boat. Simply place it on the roof of your car and anchor loops attach it securely to the rear load bar.

Construction

  • The bottom is tacky so it won’t slide.
  • Additional Features

  • Use the mat as a glide surface to get the bow of the boat onto your rear carry saddles.
  • Or just have it in place if the boat touches the top of your car.
  • Dries quickly and sheds debris with a shake.
  • Click the Thule Automated Fit Guide link below to find the right roof rack and Thule accessories.
  • Imported.

    wish it were longer
    This is being used in conjunction with a Thule roller coaster. Could be a foot longer with a weight in the bottom so the wind doesn't catch it.

    Useful pad makes loading boat carefree
    Given the structure of my new SUV, boosting my 18' kayak onto the rack without abrading the car roof is impossible. The "Water Slide" prevents scratches.... more

    Experience with the Thule 854 water slide

    Not for a van
