Hey guys,

I have a 2018 Hatchback and just got a roof rack and the likes for my kayak. However, my car conveniently did not come with the factory tow hook so I have nowhere to tie the front and back of my kayak down to. Does anyone know the thread size and the length needed to clear the front bumper? Or does anyone have recommendations from personal use? These would be used to secure the kayak, but if they don't look half bad then they might just stay on permanently.

Thanks.

Oh..yeah..even though they are called tow hooks..don't try to tow the car with them. They are designed more for securing the car in transit or for securing cargo..like your kayak.
