Question Where to tie down kayak in front?

I bought a kayak and the foam block "rack" system to carry it locally on my PT GT roof.

Where do you fasten tie-downs in front? I found the holes for the tie-down hooks under the car in back but don't see any in front.

Question Re: Where to tie down kayak in front?

No suggestions? Surely someone has found tie down locations on a PT?

I looked and felt around again and still don't see any tie-down options under the front. I can open the hood and tie to hood hinges, but that is kinda off to the side instead of straight off the front.

Called a local dealer and they said I should check with a kayaking group. Tie downs are in different locations on every car/truck so had hoped that they'd know. Guess I'd have to pay a service fee to get that answer - ha!

Thanks for your reply Jaren. I ended up opening the hood and used the hood hinges for tie downs. A couple of friends with yaks suggested that. I'll check for hooks under the grill also.

Here's what it looks like tied down. Friends said they only use two tie-down straps around the middle so may end up skipping the front and back anyway.

Hi, did you figure out how to tie down the kayak in front? We just got Thule roof racks and are buying two kayaks tomorrow. We're trying to figure out the best way to tie them down. Any suggestions would great!
