These and some other parts I had to order later made for a complete rebuild of my Yakima roof rack to fit my Subaru Forester. The original Forester roof rach was too small for my canoe, but the Yakima works perfectly.



by:

A year after purchasing this item is still doings it's job. Looking forward to another season on the water supported by these little parts. Was a treat ordering from etrailer and I will certainly be a return customer once the need arrises.

Product is excellent, took a few extra days to get here but that's because of flood, snow, ice... pandemic. Overall good. Be careful, these were seized in and I had to break them off and replace them to adjust to new vehicle rails. replacements look good.

Took the rack and rest of the family trekking vehicle up to Newfoundland and the Nova Scotia for a 3700 five week family walk about and the rack took care of the luggage box and two kayaks. Works like a charm!



by:

The product I received was to replace my old ones. They were two years old. The negative thing about this item is the outside is plastic. The inside bolt is metal . So when you leave this on your car for two years and then want to take them off, they strip. I would think if there was a way to have s metal sleeve inside the knob this wouldn't happen. As far as etrailer.coms role in getting me the replacements, they did a great job.

Same thing happened to me. When I get the new set, Im going to coat the threads in anti-seize.



by:

Yakima website is a bit confusing when it comes to parts in general and especially when it comes to parts for discontinued items. Not so with etrailer. Repair parts for my early rack towers were easy to find and quickly in my hands. Great site with great customer service.



by:

Exact replacement bolts for our Yakima railgrab claw assembly.

***Please note to use a dab of anti-seize lubricant on these bolts or they will bond to the Yakima claw assemblies and become inseparable requiring the installer to purchase new Yakima claw assemblies and Yakima threaded bolts if the Yakima rails are ever used on a different vehicle.***



by:

I started to reattach my Yakima rack. A couple of thes adjustment jobs were very stuck in place on the towers. I realized the others were headed in the same non-functional direction, and decided to replace all of them "while I am at it."

Yakima has great products, well engineered, etc. But some small things - like these knobs - just last so long.

E-trailer did a great job of fulfilling my order quickly. Quality speaks for itself, and I am happy to share the story.



by:

Everything arrived on time and in perfect condition, all of the parts fit perfectly.
I’ll be ordering all of my roof rack parts from them!

Still working better than new!



by:

A little background on the replacement parts- my original adjustment knobs corroded in the roof rack towers, forcing me to cut the plastic in order to use a wrench to get them off. I searched around and found that Yakima had replacements available. Fit like the originals, though I did apply grease this time, in order to avert another corrosion problem.



by:

I had some parts (this was one of them) that seized up on a discontinued railrider rack system and was in despair until I lucked upon etrailer. They had every part I needed, in stock and shipped out the same day. I had my rack fixed and on the car within three days. I am very grateful George was there. Instead of paying hundreds of dollars to replace a rack system it was a $ repair. Brilliant.

I worked in the paddlesports industry for years so I could tell these were obvious OEM parts, in the correct packaging and shiny new. Effortless repair. I will always rely on etrailer.com now exclusively. Great experience.



by:

I bought used racks and turns out that I needed additional parts. Searched the yakima website and they didn't have what I was looking for. Etrailer had exactly what I needed. My husband was surprised that I found them on etrailer. They arrived quickly too. Now we know where to look first next time



by:

These were just what we needed to be able to keep our 10 year old Yakima kayak system on our new car. Spending money on this saved us hundreds! THANK YOU for stocking these AND getting them shipped so quickly.



by:

These small parts are difficult to find.
I
contacted Yakima directly but they instructed me to purchase through a Vendor. Fortunately etrailer had these items in Stock; so thank you!



by:

Perfect match for defective screws that came with my used Yakima rack. Emily was awesome to work with to make sure i got the correct replacement parts.



by:

Product was as shown, and delivered on time. It's great to have one site that you know you can go to for all trailering and rack parts, whether for complete new systems or replacement parts for older systems - etrailer has it covered even when the manufacturer doesn't!



by:

The products were an exact match for the Yakima screws that I needed to replace. My roof rack is now securely attached.



by:

Exactly the part I needed to get my Yakima towers working again.

Still working great. No issues at all.



by:

The threads on my original Yakima clamps were oxidized and could not be removed without destroying them. This replacement product was priced reasonably and arrived quickly. Very satisfied.



by:

This product is exactly what I was looking for. It was easy to find and fits perfectly. This is for the Thule Hullavator which I stripped the first time I used it. Getting two of them helps me when I strip another.



by:

Parts were just what I needed and they work perfectly! I will use etrailer.com for all my Yakima parts replacement needs.



by:

This is a great place to get parts for your Yakima products. I was very pleased with the service and fast delivery.



by:

Received original Yakima replacement parts just as expected. Good price.



by:

Ordered these parts to replace the Yakima railgrabs pieces that were damaged when removed. They fit just right. Thanks.
