Video Transcript for Yakima Roof Bike Racks SmarT-Slot Mounting Kit Review

If you own the Yakima HighSpeed or the Yakima HighRoad, there is a T-slot conversion kit. And that's gonna allow you to utilize a little bit more bar space up on your roof. The Yakima HighSpeed and the HighRoad come with this strap which is a really low-profile design. But if you do wanna utilize the T-slots on whatever kind of bars that you have, whether it's Thule, Yakima, whatever, we tested it on all of them. And as long as they just have a T-slot at top, you're gonna be able to use that. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna take all of it down, put it up on the table and show how we did the conversion process.

If you decide not to use the straps on the HighSpeed meaning the little section right here, where we open this up, and fold this out, and this wraps directly around your crossbar. Pretty quick and easy. But there is a second option with this kit. So to start, we're gonna have to convert it over. We're gonna take this out, the strap, and then we're gonna take a screwdriver, and notice this little wheel which is used to tighten that.

We're gonna pop this up, spread these bands out, and then we go ahead and set this to the side, just in case we wanna convert it back. We can then remove that strap, just by pulling it through, and setting that to the side. We're gonna do the same thing for our other two straps over here. Here are the T-slots. So what you wanna do, is go on your crossbar and we're gonna assemble these first.

We'll put these on the crossbars. So we're gonna have three of them, one, two, and three. So you can go ahead and put that on your crossbar, and then we'll line 'em up. Then we have these nuts, which will tighten down on the top with the included tool. There is an extra little clamp that we're gonna put on here.

It's just like the other ones. It's just gonna snap in just like that. I personally checked a lot of different brand bars that you may have on your roof. And they work with pretty much all of them besides the RHINO-RACK C-Channel HD bars. So be mindful of that. But what we wanna do is slide these down. So I always have the front, facing the front, and they are about six and a half inches apart. So we can try to kind of line that up. These are Thule bars we're using right now. And as you can see, everything works pretty good. So kind of just get an idea of where that's at and then we can grab our rack. The goal here is to get those studs through these little holes here, and then there's gonna be one in the back as well. So let's go ahead, put this up. We do wanna make sure that the T-slots are gonna be facing the side. So they catch that lip, 'cause if they don't, it's not really gonna do a whole lot. From underneath you can see the two slots on the front that we want to put it in. Kinda lay it down, and adjust it. I do wanna make sure that seat's in that hole so it's not gonna rotate. Perfect! The back one's a little bit easier because this adjusts like this. So that's pretty easy to get it down into place. Now we'll take our nut. I like to get 'em started, on all of them make sure they all are threading and they're nice and easy. And also with the back, we do get a tool with the kit. It's like one of those windy things on those toys you used to play with. Pretty big, but it's still small enough where you can fit it in your glove box if you want. We're gonna tighten this down. I kind of like to go from nut to nut, get 'em pretty much tightened down, and then come back through and torque it down to the specs in our instructions. We will get different clamps that we are just gonna fit right into the slot. Hold it down, and slide that over. Same with that one and our back one as well. Pretty simple thing just to be able to use those extra couple of inches above those towers. So you can fit more bikes and bring more people, to wherever you want to go. And that's pretty much it for our look at the T-slot kit for your Yakima HighSpeed or your HighRoad..

SmarT-Slot Mounting Kit for Yakima HighSpeed and HighRoad Roof Bike Racks - Y02122

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (10 Customer Reviews)

SmarT-Slot kit lets you mount a Yakima HighSpeed or HighRoad roof bike rack to your crossbars with T-slots. Replaces the standard clamp-on mounting hardware. Works with most crossbars with top channels.


I tried this with the Yakima HighSpeed on a 2023 Model Y and there was a lot of overhang for my comfort, but it was secured tightly. Taking it on and off also felt like a pain because of the alignment with the screws and fearing the rack will slip and hit the roof glass. I decided to go back to the original straps.


Perfect part for securing the rack. George was great! Thank you!


Build a tonneau cover & 4x bike rack for a 2020 Raptor. The Yakima kit fit perfect on a RetraxPro XR with 4 Yakima HighRoad bike racks. Also used the T-slot kit for cleaner mounting. Works perfectly and seamlessly. Very pleased.


Multiple orders over the years. Always fast and efficient and they often have things that other sites state "Out of Stock".

  • Will Yakima Smart-Slot Mounting Kit Fit Thule Wingbar Evo Channels
    Yes the SmarT-Slot Mounting Kit for Yakima HighSpeed and HighRoad Roof Bike Racks # Y02122 that you referenced does fit into the top channels of the Thule WingBar Evo crossbars.

  • Is It Ok If My Yakima HighSpeed Carrier Is Not Completely Flush Against The Crossbar?
    This does not look out of the ordinary at all. Different shapes of crossbars, and the angle of the OEM crossbars can cause the pads to not sit entirely flush. As long as the T-slot hardware on your Yakima HighSpeed # Y25FR is all installed correctly and tightened to specification the rack will be secure and ok to use.

  • Will SmarT-Slot Mounting Kit for Yakima HighSpeed and HighRoad Roof Bike Racks Fit Adarac Load Bars
    Since the Adarac load bars have channels on top of them yes the SmarT-Slot kit part # Y02122 will fit them to allow you to install a Highspeed # Y02115 or HighRoad # Y02114.

  • Yakima Fork Mount Bike Rack for Overhaul HD Truck Rack With HD Bars
    I really like the Yakima HighSpeed # Y02115 better than the ForkLift # Y02098 because it seems much more solid but both are good options. They work great with the HD bars as can see in my video. It's super simple to install which you can either wrap it around your crossbars right out of the box or you can use this T-Slot adapter kit # Y02122 to mount it via T-Slots. and can be used for axles with dimensions of 9 mm x 100 mm, 12 mm x 100 mm, 15 mm x 100 mm, 15 mm x 110 mm, 15 mm x 135 mm,...

  • What Parts Come With The Yakima HighSpeed Roof Bike Rack # Y25FR?
    You are correct, the Yakima HighSpeed Roof Bike Rack # Y25FR is a combination of the Yakima HighSpeed Roof Bike Rack # Y02115 and the SmarT-Slot Mounting Kit # Y02122. So you can choose to buy the combo kit or parts separately and still get all the same parts.

  • Mounting the Yakima ForkLift Roof Bike Rack to Yakima JetStream Aero Crossbars
    No need for adapters! The clamps on the Yakima ForkLift Roof Mounted Bike Rack # Y02098 can be adjusted to fit round, square, or aero bars. The Yakima JetStream crossbars # Y00425 are a little large at 3-1/8" wide x 1" tall so it will be a tight fit. They are still within the maximum of 3-7/8" wide or 1-7/8" tall specs though that the ForkLift clamps can fit around. I suggest making sure your clamps are adjusted to the lowest notch. I attached a picture from the instructions to show that...

  • Does the Yakima Frontloader Fit on My Crossbars?
    Yes, your Brightlines crossbars on your 2019 Honda CR-V are similar in shape and design although a little bit smaller than the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425. This means the clamps will fit around your crossbars. It also looks like the Brightlines has a T-track system in the middle. Have you considered getting the Yakima HighRoad Bike Rack # Y02114 instead? It has more of a weight and wheel capacity. It also uses the newer TorqueRight knob to secure your bike. The Yakima FrontLoader...

  • Recommended Bike Rack to Use with the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer
    I recommend using the Yakima HighRoad Roof Bike Rack # Y02114 with the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 because it is a wheel mount version so you don't have to find a place to store the spare tire, plus it can be mounted to the HD crossbars if you use the SmarT-slot Kit # Y02122 . This rack also comes with the ability to add locks with the Kit # Y07202 and is compatible with disc brakes as well. I have attached a review video for you to reference as well.

  • Are Thule and Yakima Accessories Compatible with Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack on a 2018 Toyota RAV4
    The aero bars that come on the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 for your 2018 Toyota RAV4 measure 3" wide x 1" tall which is right on par with Thule and Yakima aero-style bars. As long as the bike rack or cargo carrier you are looking at is compatible with aero bars you are good to go! The only other thing to check is that the Malone AirFlow2 has a minimum crossbar spread of 27-1/2" but that shouldn't be a problem either. If you let me know what bike rack or cargo carrier you are interested...

  • Can 4 Bikes and 1 Kayak be Transported on Top Bar of Yakima EasyRider Trailer
    The Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 comes with the 78" Yakima HD crossbars. You can definitely fit your 4 bikes (as the 78" bars can accommodate 6 bikes) and you might be able to also fit your kayak but you'll want to test it out a little to confirm this beforehand. The JayHook # Y04084 will fit the HD bars (my contact at Yakima said it might be a little tricky to fit, but it does fit), and it measures 9-1/2" wide. Since your kayak will be sitting at an angle your whole...

  • Is Yakima Highroad Bike Rack Compatible With Rhino-Rack Roof Rack on 2017 Ford Focus Hatchback
    Thanks for the purchase and I'm happy to confirm that the Yakima HighRoad Roof Bike Rack # Y02114 is 100 percent compatible with the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK307 you have on your 2017 Ford Focus hatchback. The HighRoad will clamp right onto the roof rack without issue, or you can use the SmarT-Slot Mounting Kit # Y02122 to mount the HighRoad directly to the channels of your Rhino-Rack crossbars. The only other thing I recommend is adding the Yakima Same Key...

  • Can Yakima HighRoad Bike Rack Fit Into Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar T-Slot Track?
    Yes, the Yakima HighRoad Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount - Clamp On # Y02114 is compatible with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars. You can either use the included clamps, or you can use Yakima T-Slot Adapter # Y02122 to fit the HighRoad into the Rhino-Rack top track. I also recommend adding Yakima SKS Lock Cores (QTY 2) # Y07202 to secure the bike and bike rack to the roof. I attached demonstration videos for you to check out.

  • Will the Yakima Highroad Fit on Thule Xsporter Pro Bars
    The load bars on the Thule Xsporter Pro like the # TH500XTB (fits Nissan Frontiers) are 3-1/2" wide x 1-1/2" tall, but it also has T-slot channels that allow for mounting accessories. The Yakima Highroad # Y75FR can be mounted on either crossbars or in the T-slots, so you'll be able to use it with a Thule Xsporter. If your Highroad didn't come with the T-slot mounting hardware you'll want to use the SmarT-Slot Mounting Kit for Yakima HighSpeed and HighRoad Roof Bike Racks # Y02122. If...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for Carrying a Bike on a 2019 Ford Expedition
    I recommend going with the Yakima JetStream roof rack system for your 2019 Ford Expedition because the JetStream bars are more versatile than other crossbars and they don't require any modification to the rubber strip when using accessories. The parts that you need to install this system on your 2019 Expedition are the 60" JetStream Bars # Y00426 , and the TimberLine Towers # Y33TR. These easily install on the OEM raised rails of your Expedition and can be locked for security with the...

Below is a list of compatible roof bike carriers for the LockNLoad: Yakima HighSpeed # Y02115 (can attach with included rubber coated steel straps, or with optional SmarT-slot kit # Y02122 sold separately) Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 Yakima ForkLift # Y02098 Yakima WheelHouse # Y02108 The FrontLoader # Y02103 is going to be your best...

  • Yakima High Speed Roof Bike Rack with SmarT-slot Mounting Kit and Thule AeroBlade Compatibility
    The Yakima HighSpeed Roof Bike Rack - Fork Mount - Clamp On # Y02115 will work well with the SmarT-Slot Mounting Kit for Yakima HighSpeed and HighRoad Roof Bike Racks # Y02122 to mount to any crossbars with the top channel. The Thule Aero Blade crossbars like # TH7603B-TH7603B with fit your 2017 BMW X5 but you will also need the discontinued fit kit 4023 for that specific fit. You may want to consider a different option if you don't already have that roof rack. I've linked the page to...

  • Recommended Roof Rack to Carry a Bike on a 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid
    The roof rack that I recommend for your 2015 Honda Accord is the Yakima JetStream system as it gives you a completely custom fit for the most secure roof rack due to the adjustments you make in the legs. For your Accord you will need the following parts depending on if you have a 2-Door or 4-Door. I'm pretty sure the Hybrids are all 4-Door but here are the parts for either option just to be sure. 2-Door Accord (weight capacity 165 lbs): 50" JetStream Bars - # Y00425 BaseLine Towers -...

  • Can I Attach My Yakima OffGrid and High Roller to Rhino-Rack HD Crossbars?
    Since you have Yakima tracks like the # Y01126 installed on your 2014 Ford F-150, a great option is the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for Thule and Yakima Tracks - 2 Heavy-Duty Crossbars - 65" # Y01-140B-NT. The Rhino-Rack HD crossbars provide you with 220 pounds of maximum weight capacity. There are no other heavy duty crossbar setups that are compatible with the Yakima tracks that have a larger weight capacity (or go over 165 pounds). Even though Yakima cannot confirm for sure, my representative...

    Yes, the T-Track hardware included on the Thule UpRide Roof Bike Rack # TH599000 will let you install it properly in the top channels of Rhino-Rack's Vortex roof crossbars. On your 2012 Scion xB you'll want to order and install Rhino-Rack parts # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK152 to complete your roof rack.

  • Parts Needed For Carrying a Bike With a RetraPRO XR Retractable Tonneau Cover With T-Slot Rails
    You will need to use Crossbars # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 with a RetraxPRO XR Tonneau cover # RTT-80383 to be able to use a bike rack. Since the slots on the RetraxPRO are in line they cannot be used with a bike rack like the Thule ProRide XT Roof Bike Rack # TH598004 since the front has mounts that are side by side to provide stability for the rack. This is necessary to prevent the bike from falling on its side. The bike racks are also not long enough to span from the drivers side rail to the...
