Kayak Racks - need suggestions

I am looking for suggestions on the best way to get a pair of kayaks (about 60 lbs each) on to the top of a Kia. One of us is short, and we are in our mid 60s.

The car seems too tall to easily lift a kayak onto the roof and the plastic lift over the hatch seems like it will break if I put up a kayak starting from the back of the car and slide it up onto the roof.

Anyone with experience using the Yakima Showdown lift system?
