SkyLine Towers

The heavy-duty SkyLine towers allow you to mount 2 Yakima crossbars (sold separately) to your vehicle with fixed mounting points, flush side rails, or tracks. The towers adjust during installation to ensure your crossbars are level. The SkyLines' versatile BarBeds accommodate Yakima's full line of crossbars. The towers install with Yakima's Landing Pad system (sold separately).


Versatile BarBed

SkyLine BarBed

The SkyLine'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.


Torque Tool

The crossbars mount to the SkyLine 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.


Simple Installation with Landing Pads

SkyLine with LandingPad

The towers install with custom-fit Landing Pads (sold separately). To mount a tower simply open the cover, set the tower on the Landing Pad, and close the cover.


SkyLine Cover

Mounting posts on the bottom of the tower extend when the cover is closed to lock the tower in place on the Landing Pad.


SkyLine Pitch Diagram

Each tower's pitch can be adjusted up to 6 degrees forward or backward during installation. This lets you create a level mounting surface for your gear even on a curved roof. Simply loosen the bolt near the top of the tower assembly, adjust the position of your bar, and then re-tighten the bolt.


Same Key System Locks

4 Pack SKS Lock Cores

SkyLine 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.

  • Can Yakima Rail Grab Lock Cores be Swapped into Skyline Towers
    If you unlock the Yakima cores you can use the change key part # Y8007835 to remove the cores from the old rack and then install them into the Skyline towers # Y53TR. Yakima hasn't changed their lock core design so this would work easily.

  • Which Yakima Towers Can Install in Retrax XR Tonneau Rails
    Yakima's Skyline towers part # Y53TR can fit the tracks of the Retrax XR that you have with the landing pad 1 part # Y00221 but there isn't a way with the Baseline towers. Your Yakima Corebar or Jetstream bars will work with the Skyline towers though.

  • Does the Replacement RoundBar SL Adapter for Yakima StreamLine Towers Come With Mounting Bolt
    The Replacement RoundBar SL Adapter for Yakima StreamLine Towers part # 8880641 is designed to mount to a stud inside the SkyLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars part # Y53TR. Therefore the stud will be included with the mounting feet but this is not something we sell separately nor would I have any sort of specs on said stud.

  • Troubleshooting Yakima Roof Rack Installation on a 2021 Toyota Highlander
    If you are having issues getting the Landing Pad 28 # Y66VR and SkyLine Towers # Y53TR to fit correctly on your 2021 Toyota Highlander then the first thing to check is that you have the pads in the correct positions. You should have them turned in such a way that the extra material is facing to the front of the Highlander for the front pads and then the back of the Highlander for the rear pads (see attached). If you have done this correctly then try sending me some photos and I'll see...

  • Fit Kit for Installing Yakima Legs on Thule Tracks for 2022 Toyota Tacoma
    Thanks for reaching out! If you have the SkyLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y53TR then all you need is 2 sets of the Landing Pad 26 # Y75ZR and you're set. If you have a different leg kit then you need the SkyLine towers to accomplish this as the other Yakima legs are for different installation types.

  • Roof Rack with 60-Inch Crossbars for 2017 Chevy Suburban with Flush Roof Side Rails
    The Rola Sport REX Series Roof Rack 59685 is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Chevrolet Suburban but this rack comes as a complete kit and no other lengths of bars are available. If you prefer a longer roof rack crossbar in the 60-inch size we do have options that are displayed on the linked page. Like the Rola rack, all of these Thule and Yakima options feature aero-style crossbars that are quieter than other bar types. The most cost-effective choice is the Yakima Core Bar/Skyline rack...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for a 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT
    The 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT has a bare roof so I am not sure I understand what you are referring to as the existing rails but if you can send me a photo I would be glad to clear that up for you. If you are referring to the moulding (see photo) then I recommend using the Yakima JetStream Crossbar System which is composed of part # Y00425, part # Y53TR, and part # Y00248. I like the JetStream system because it has aero shaped cross bars that are both wind resistance and less noisy than a...

  • 70 inch Aero Crossbar Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Honda Pilot Elite with Flush Rails
    I have a solution that will give you 70 inch long aero shaped crossbars on your 2017 Honda Pilot. What you'll want is the Yakima CoreBar roof rack that consists of part # Y00423, # Y53TR, and # Y00245. Yakima either has 60 inch or 70 inch bars so since you needed 65 inch at least 70 seemed to be the best choice.

  • Yakima CoreBar Roof Rack Recommendation with 60 inch Crossbars for 2017 Ford Explorer
    If you wanted to use the 60 inch CoreBars part # Y00422 that you referenced on the roof of your 2017 Ford Explorer you could. You'd need the towers part # Y53TR and the landing pad # Y00245 and you'd be set. Since the CoreBars use a sleeve that can slide up and down the bar easily as the attachment point you can go with a longer bar and not have to worry about fit issues.

  • How Does Yakima Roof Rack Install on 2018 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk with E-Group Rails
    We installed the Yakima JetStream Roof Rack part numbers # Y00425, # Y53TR, and # Y00244 on a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee similar to your Trailhawk and we video recorded the process. If you fast-forward to the 3:09 mark of the video I attached you'll see how we intalled the kit and how it went. The forward and rearword most screws are to be used like you mentioned. Jeep may have a Mopar rack that installs differently on the rails, but the way Yakima recommends this rack install is the only...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2014 Honda CR-V with Flush Mounted Roof Rails
    It sounds like you have the flush mounted roof rails on your 2014 Honda CRV. These rails still require a foot pack, towers, and crossbars. It sounds like you may have the foot pack like the Landing Pad 14 for Yakima Control Towers Y00240. If that is the case, that is a good thing as you would need two of those kits for a roof rack. These foot packs also need the SkyLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Fixed Mounting Points, Flush Rails, and Track Systems - Qty 4 # Y53TR and then crossbars...

The landing pads are made specifically for the fixed mounting points in your factory flush rails.

  • Does Yakima Roof Rack for 2017 Honda CR-V Have Speed Rating
    The roof racks we offer for your 2017 Honda CR-V like the Yakima part numbers # Y00425, # Y53TR, and # Y00245 which give you an aero shaped bar do not have a max speed rating but as long as you are below or near the speed limit you are going to be fine. I'd imagine you'd have bigger issues at whatever speed is too much for this roof rack long before the rack itself would become an issue. I looked pictures of tarheel antennas and they are pretty big. I am not sure that a roof rack would...

  • Yakima Roof Rack for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Flush Rails

  • Roof Rack Spacing On Roof Of 2006 Dodge Caravan With Sliding Doors
    When installing the Yakima roof rack on your 2006 Dodge Caravan with the sliding doors, the location of the feet and bars is not something that can be adjusted for each load. They are designed for a specific location so you would need to use other accessories like a roof basket for your specific load to give further support. To order the roof rack custom made for your Caravan, you will need part # Y00425, # Y53TR, and part # Y00224. I have attached a product review video for this roof...

  • Yakima Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee With Group E Rails
    Thank you for the pictures of the rails of your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. What you have is the Group E rails so the Yakima Aero bar roof rack you would need is the # Y00425, # Y53TR, and # Y00244.

  • Recommended Roof Rack System For Yakima Round Bars On 2006 Honda CR-V
    I reached out to my contact at Yakima and there are not Q clips available for your 2006 Honda CR-V so your Q towers will not be compatible. That model has fixed points in the roof and so their recommendation is the Skyline Towers # Y53TR and Landing pads # Y00228 which you will need a quantity of 2 kits for 4 pads total. To use these with round bars like you have, you will also need the round bar adapter # Y03536. Their recommended cross bar length for this rack on your vehicle is 48...

  • Fitting Thule Crossbars to Yakima Mounts for a 2017 Honda CR-V
    In this case, you can't fit crossbars and feet between brands. The shaping of the receivers on each rack, plus the shaping of the fit kit will result in an unstable base and they will have practically no use. You are better off purchasing a new kit, such as the Yakima JetStream kit, consisting of: - JetStream Crossbars, part # Y00425 - SkyLine Towers, part # Y53TR - Lading Pad 19 for SkyLine Towers, part # Y00245 This will give you the same look as your existing crossbars while offering...

  • Yakima Landing Pads for 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The Yakima Landing Pad 15, part # Y00241 is a confirmed fit for the 2017 Subaru Outback. According to Yakima, these will work with SkyLine towers and Control Towers. If it turns out your current towers don't fit the new landing pads, you'll need the following parts to use your existing round bars: - SkyLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars, part # Y53TR - Round Bar SL Adapter, part # Y03536 This will allow you to keep your current bars and install them on the landing pads if needed.

  • Roof Rack for a 2018 Subaru WRX to use OEM Subaru Acessories
    I recommend the Yakima Jet Stream kit for your application, based on the shape of the previous bars you had. This kit provides you with aero shaped bars that are very similar to the 2011 Subaru Impreza's factory bars. This rack installs into the fixed points on your roof, however is not compatible if you have a glass roof on your Subaru. The kit consists of: JetStream Crossbars, 50 inches, part # Y00425 SkyLine Towers, part # Y53TR Landing Pad 11 for Yakima Towers, part # Y00233 This...
