Just tried this thing out for the first time this weekend. I have a 2001 Honda Civic Sedan and two 12' sit-on-top Ocean Kayaks. They're also stackable which helps immensely. After I inflated the rack and secured it to my roof I stacked the two kayaks upside down on top of each other. Then I strapped the two kayaks securely together and then strapped them both to the heavy duty D Rings attached to the rack. Lastly, I secured the bow and stern of the yaks to hooks that are found underneath the front and back of your car. If your car doesn't have these hooks then you need to find something else to secure them to. The front and back MUST be tied down. They must have improved the design because it happened to rain a little bit that day and not one drop leaked into my car. I should also mention that the kayaks that I have stacked up there are Ocean Kayak Scrambler XT's and they weigh about 50 pounds each. The Malone Handirack can hold up to 180 pounds. The rack was extremely easy to inflate and can be done by one person with no problem; took me about 2 minutes to inflate both pieces. I took it up to speeds of 65 mph on the highway but quickly exited because it was very windy and I was afraid one of my tiedowns might slip off. When it's windy you can really feel the wind pushing on your car and the kayaks. I'd recommend this rack to anyone who doesn't want to spend money on a metal roof rack or don't want to modify your car. They work just as good and you can find them for around $80 on [@]. Even if you have a small car it will still work. Again, I have a 2001 Honda Civic and it carried TWO 12 foot kayaks. Here is a picture of it.
