Thanks; the kayak is Chesapeake 16 built from a kit.
The Hull-A-Vators attach to low profile mounting plates that in turn bolt onto the load bars.
The Hull-A-Vators come on and off the mounting plates very easily; it takes less than a minute to put them both on or off. Once the Hull-A-Vators are attached the vehicle, they can be locked closed using Thule core locks.
Once locked, the mounting plate hardware is concealed so the hull-a-vators can't be removed.
When I'm not actually using my kayak, I take the Hull-A-Vators off and leave the mounting plates attached. Since the mounting plates are rather low profile and are absolutely uninteresting looking, I don't worry about anyone taking them.
