SkyLine Towers

The heavy-duty SkyLine towers allow you to mount 1 Yakima crossbar (sold separately) to your vehicle with fixed mounting points, flush side rails, or tracks. The towers adjust during installation to ensure your crossbar is 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 a Yakima RoundBar with adapters (Y03536 - sold separately). The adapters slide over the bar and secure to the towers with bolts.


Torque Tool

The crossbar mounts 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

2 Pack SKS Lock Cores

SkyLine towers are compatible with Yakima SKS lock cores (Y07202 - 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.

Video Transcript for Review of Yakima 2 SkyLine Towers - Y72TR

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Yakima Skyline Crossbar Tower set. This set is going to give you two of these heavy-duty towers that will allow you to mount one Yakima crossbar to your vehicle with fixed mounting points, flushed side rails or tracks. Now this will pair with a Yakima crossbar and landing pads. Now those other components are sold separately, but you will need all three to create the complete roof rack system. Now these do have this versatile bar beds design that's going to be curved to accommodate the elliptical shape of the Yakima Core bar, and Jet Stream crossbar.

These are also going to be compatible with the round bar crossbar adapter that you see on the screen there. So if you do have round bars that you're wanting to use, now that will accommodate those. This is gonna be a very easy tool. Free installation. You just drop the tower on your landing pads and then close the cover.

The tower pitch can be adjusted to accommodate your roof shape so you can move that six degrees forward, and six degrees backward to level your crossbars. The included torque tool here, it's gonna click three times when the crossbar is tightened. It's gonna eliminate the fear of under or over tightening. Having that clicking on the handle, let you know it's exactly as tight as it needs to be. This does not come with locks, but it is gonna be compatible with the Yakima same key system.

Those lock cords will just mount in place of that plastic plug there, and allow you to lock it. These are constructed of weather resistant and die cast aluminum, stainless steel glass, reinforced plastic and elastomer construction. So they are gonna be very durable for you. It will hold up really well, even sitting on the roof for long periods of time being exposed to the elements. They're gonna hold up well for you.

We come with a limited lifetime warranty. So if you we're to have any issues with them, you're more than welcome to reach out to us here at etrailer.com and they also include some instructions for you to get them installed. Walk you through a little bit more in detail, and make sure that everything's set up correctly for you. So that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.

  • Can the Yakima 60" HD Tracks for Roof Racks Be Used on a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica with a Naked Roof
    The Yakima 60" HD Tracks for Roof Racks # Y74MR was designed to be used on truck bed rails or truck bed caps. It was not intended for use on the roof of a vehicle. That being said, it does not mean that you cannot do it. It simply means that there is no guide as to which vehicles it would be a good fitment for. I did take a look and did not see another roof rack option, so installing tracks would be a good option. But, you will need to measure your roof to ensure you have the space. The...
