BaseLine Towers

The heavy-duty BaseLine towers allow you to mount 2 Yakima crossbars (sold separately) to your vehicle with a naked roof. The towers can be adjusted during installation to ensure your crossbars are level and that the rack is seated correctly on your roof. The BaseLines' versatile BarBeds accommodate Yakima's full line of crossbars. The towers install with Yakima's DropHook system and BaseClips (sold separately).


Versatile BarBed

Versatile BaseLine BarBed

The BaseLine's BarBed is specifically designed to work with Yakima's entire line of crossbars.


CoreBar CrossbarJetStream Crossbar

The BarBed is curved to accommodate the elliptical shape of the CoreBar and JetStream crossbar. The CoreBar includes brackets that slide over the bar and secure to the towers with bolts. The JetStream attaches directly to the tower with bolts.


RoundBar CrossbarRoundBar Adapter

The towers also work with Yakima RoundBars with adapters (Y03536 - sold separately). The adapters slide over the bars and secure to the towers with bolts.


Included Torque Tool

The crossbars mount to the BaseLine towers with the included torque tool. The tool clicks 3 times once you've reached the correct amount of torque so you don't have to worry about over- or under-tightening. This is the only tool you will need to secure the bars to the towers and the towers to your roof.


Adjustable Pitch and Toe Angle

BaseLine Pitch and Toe Diagram

The pitch and toe angle of each tower adjusts to provide a level mounting surface and to ensure the rack is seated correctly on your roof. To set up, install the towers on your crossbars and place them so the bottoms of the towers are facing up. Next, adjust the pitch and toe angle to the correct position as indicated by your fit kit's instruction manual. The pitch adjustments are labeled A, B, and C, and the toe angle adjustments are labelled 1, 2, and 3. Once these are set place the rack on your roof.


Secure Installation with DropHook System

BaseLine DropHook System

The towers install with custom-fit BaseClips (sold separately). To mount a tower remove the cover, open the door inside the assembly, and attach the BaseClip to the hook inside the tower. The clip adjusts on 3 axes as you tighten it to ensure a safe and secure fit. Once the clip is tightened down, close the door to secure the clip in place.


Same Key System Locks

4 Pack SKS Lock Cores

BaseLine towers are compatible with Yakima SKS lock cores (Y07204 - sold separately) that allow you to secure the roof rack to your roof. The SKS locks are all keyed alike so a single key opens all the locks. The locks can also be swapped out to make all of your Yakima products keyed alike.

Really easy to install & work as specified. So happy with the customer support/service at etrailer.

Love my Yakima roof rack!! It exceeds my expectations.great product. Also thank etrailer for the tec support! great staff always there to help thanks again!!



by:

Your notice of schemes was a lot better than the yakima site provided. They did not suggest the scheme you did.

But when the products arrived, the instructions were by yakima. Generally worked as instructed except the tower to tower transverse mounting dimensions needed to be tweaked for a perfect fit.

2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Excellent solution for my 2023 Chevy Silverado. In the past, I have had rails installed on the roof of my pickup trucks, but I find the BaseLine towers to be a better solution, since they don't permanently change the truck. Plus, they are much more solid than SkyLine system on the rails.

So far so good. Purchased these towers to use on a 2022 GMC Canyon with HD bars that I already had, primarily to carry my canoe. Yakima's fitting instructions worked perfectly and the whole system seems really solid.

Follow the instructions, and you can't go wrong on the self installation

Solid build quality and easy installation on my '21 Mazda CX-5.



by:

Ackage came 2 days early the install was somewhat easy (did it by myself)
Did not get to mount anything to it but seems really sturdy. One thing I can say is mark out your mounting points with provided stickers then put up and make adjustments to the roof rack.

Well packaged and on time

  • Height Added To The Roof Of My Vehicle When Using The Yakima Showdown # Y04081
    The Yakima Baseline towers # Y28TR with the landing pad 19 will leave you about 5-1/4 inches from the top of your bar to the roof of your 2020 Honda CR-V. That being said the Yakima Showdown # Y04081 will sit about 9 inches up from the top of your bar when the kayaks are not loaded.

  • Lock Core and Key Kit for Yakima BaseLine Tower Roof Rack on 2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI

  • Minimum Crossbar Length for Yakima Roof Rack on 2019 Honda Ridgeline
    According to Yakima, the shortest crossbars that will work on your Ridgeline is their 'medium' crossbar which is the 60 inch long # Y00426. If you go any shorter than that, the bar won't be long enough to properly connect to the roof rack feet. To provide a rack, if you have the bare roof you'd need the following: 60 Inch Crossbars, part # Y00426 BaseLine Towers, part # Y28TR Vehicle Specific BaseClips, part # Y06152 If your Ridgeline has the side rails on the roof, you'd use the same...

  • Can I Use My Old Yakima RoundBars On My 2017 Chevrolet Colorado
    There is a solution for you that will allow you to still use Yakima round bars, if you have them. Unfortunately, since the Q-Towers have been discontinued and the new system is not backwards compatible, you will need new towers, a fit kit, and round bar adapters. This is what you need for your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado.

  • Yakima Roof Rack Compatibility With A 2018 Lexus LS500 With Panoramic Sunroof
    The Yakima CoreBar Crossbars # Y00421, BaseLine Towers # Y28TR, and BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06117 are all a confirmed fit for your 2018 Lexus LS500 and would still fit with your panoramic glass roof. Since these will press against the glass you won't be able to open it while the rack is installed.

  • Comparing Thule and Yakima Roof Racks For Durability On a 2018 Honda Pilot
    The Thule and Yakima roof racks are both excellent options for a 2018 Honda Pilot. In regards to durability, it would really be hard to make an argument for one being better than the other as they both use pretty much the same materials and all parts are coated. That said, rust/corrosion is not really an issue we hear about for roof rack. I prefer the Yakima Jetstream Crossbar System part # Y00426, part # Y28TR, and part # Y06152 which is currently the most cost effective.

  • Roof Rack Fitment for a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta
    We do have another kit that will work, but unfortunately the Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack is no longer an active product. Thule does not have an active item that will fit your 2001 Volkswagen Jetta. I like the looks of the Yakima Jetstream Crossbars # Y00425 with the Baseline Towers # Y28TR and this fit kit # Y06166. You're not loosing anything by going with Yakima. They have accessory T-Slots on top and the bar is basically the same as the Thule Aero Bars. The only difference is that...

    The side rails would have come from the vehicle manufacturer. We do not have roof rack kits that will include side rails. However, you can still get a roof rack for your 2019 Chevrolet Traverse, even without rails. You can use the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse Roof Rack by Yakima which consist of: - Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00426 - BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y28TR - BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima # Y06153 (x2)

  • Replacement Clips For Yakima Towers On 2013 Nissan Rogue
    On your 2013 Nissan Rogue, there are only two Yakima towers confirmed to fit. The baseline towers # Y28TR are for the models without existing rails or crossbars. They will require the BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06123 and # Y06135. These towers will work with a variety of rails. The other towers are for the raised factory rails and don't require any clips, so you must have the baseline towers. The # Y06135 are for the rear crossbar towers and the # Y06123 is for the front crossbar towers.

  • Do Yakima JetStream Crossbars Fit a 2015 Lincoln MKX with Panoramic Roof
    Actually, the Yakima JetStream roof rack has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Lincoln MKX with the panoramic roof. You may not be able to open the roof depending on how much clearance there is between it and the bottom of the crossbars or the mounting hardware of anything on the crossbars. So use caution once you have the rack on our Lincoln. You need the 50 inch JetSreams # Y00425 in black. Along with the BaseLine towers, part # Y28TR, and BaseClips, part # Y06180.

They are aero-style crossbars, making them compatible with most accessories while cutting down on wind noise and resistance. They are 60" long and have a capacity of 165 pounds. To mount these to your Jetta, you will need the BaseLine Towers, part # Y28TR, and the BaseClip Fit Kit, part # Y06117. I've linked to a video review of the towers and fit kit below. The SeaSucker...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Ford F-150 with Panoramic Roof
    Yakima has a roof rack option that will fit models of the 2017 Ford F-150 that have the panoramic roof. Keep in mind though they state not to open a sunroof or panoramic roof because they may interfere with some accessories. If you have a Super Crew Cab or SuperCab you can use bars # Y00426, BaseLine towers # Y28TR, and 2 sets of clips # Y06122. There isn't an option for the regular cab (if the panoramic roof was even an option for the regular cab models). A popular kayak carrier that...

There isn't a Whispbar system currently in production that will fit your vehicle.

    With aftermarket roof racks you really don't want to open the sunroof of the vehicle as it will create quite a bit of noise. I checked with other roof rack manufacturers and Yakima, for example, only has the line: If your vehicle is equipped with a sunroof or panoramic glass roof, prior to operation, ensure adequate clearance exists with roof rack and/or accessories installed. So the Yakima JetStream rack part numbers # Y00426, # Y28TR, and # Y06152 would be a great option that has similar...
