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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

    For starters, the correct Yakima roof rack for your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude is the Yakima JetStream Crossbar System part # Y00426, part # Y28TR, and part # Y06121.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2018 Honda Pilot that Allows Sunroof to Open Potentially
    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...

    For your 2018 Ford F-250 Crew Cab the Yakima Roof Rack part numbers # Y00422, # Y28TR, and # Y06185 would be a great solution as it is a confirmed fit and the fact that it does not permanently modify the roof of the vehicle it is installed on. So you'd be able to take the roof off when it's time to return the lease and no one would know the difference. The aero shape of these bars also helps cut down on wind noise which is a nice feature as well. I attached an install video for thist...
