Default Best Canoe roof rack for my 2001 Blazer ?

Good evening,
Does anyone know if they make any add on parts for my 2001 Blazer factory roof rack ? Bought a canoe and want to use the rack that I have. Looking for side blocks that hold the canoe from sliding left or right.
Thanks for any information

John

Cut some large pool noodles and cover the gunwales for padding and use ratchet straps. There's also a bracket that mounts to the trailer hitch for easier loading in sports catalogs.

I use the Yakima keelover. They fit on the stock cross bars and work great for me... on my blazer I have to mount them inside the gunwales though due to the size of my Minnesota 3 Wenonah canoe. They still hold great.

Great ! Thank you. Just what I was looking for. Bought a Waterquest 14 canoe. Wide beam as well.
