The K-Guard from Thule is a really fancy bit of kit. Designed for safety and security it is a top end kayak carrying solution.

What Steve thinks......

The Thule K-Guard is a great bit of kit. Key locking to the vehicle and key locking straps provide an unmatched level of security from theft. The product is well made as is typical for Thule and is worth the extra cost over cheaper alternatives.

I would recommend buying an extra set of basic tie down straps for securing the ends of your kayak to your vehicle towing points. It is disappointing that these are not included in the kit as the instructions tell you to use them and with a premium product like this I would expect tie downs to be included.
