A kayak rack, alternatively called a kayak carrier, does just what its name implies -- it carries your kayak, less obviously, on the roof of your car or SUV. In this sense, it's similar to a bike rack, save for being specific to hauling kayaks.
Most available out there these days are compatible with existing roof racks, with little to no assembly required, and a roof rack is usually required to install one. Some can carry more than one kayak, usually with some form of protection for the hull, and often, they have rubber pads for transporting them without crossbars. You can also adjust the height of some for relative ease in loading and unloading. Many install to accommodate either a horizontal or a vertical carrying position, tie-down straps are sometimes included to keep your kayak snug, and some fold up for compact storage once you're done using them. There are even anti-theft designs out there for added security, not to mention anti-sway constructions for stability.
