Honda Element

I have used Yakima products for decades. This was a slightly different application for me however with the existing roof mounts on the Honda Element. The landing pads work well, but I just don't trust the 2 small bolts and the plastic to metal butted connection. I would feel better at 70mph with a more 'fitted' attachment. The finished mount feels good. Time will tell. Otherwise an easy installation and a very good looking one. I like the quick detach towers. The full rack on an Element is noisy, nice not to have to hear it without a boat on.

Etrailer was a very easy to work with and I will use the company again.

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


I was seriously disappointed ?? the landing pads are not made for the Tacoma and sit on the roof with a gap that looks bad and will let water and trash into the bolt parts of the rack to roof juncture. For the amount of money it should be made correctly. I was also shocked to find that the landing pads upper parts were plastic… I have used Yakima for over 30 years and never expected a “cheap out “ like that! I was so disappointed I have never used the racks! They also only have provisions for one of the two bolts at each landing pad roof juncture. Disappointed ??!


Comments
I have a few questions about your 2016 Tacoma. Is it a double cab or access cab? Did you have a naked roof, factory raised rails, or factory roof rack?

They were relatively easy to install, I received them in short order and I am happy with their substantial construction. In short, I'm a happy camper. Thank you.

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


I recently purchased a rack system for my 1979 Ford Bronco to haul our new Kayaks. And believe me it was not easy to "fit" a vehicle as old as this.

I had some interesting challenges - my truck has a 3" lift and only clears my garage entrance by about 1.5 inches, so whatever I got had to be easily removable (at least in the front). I also wanted it to be multi functional so that I could carry other stuff as well, and the Yakima/Thule systems are great for that. Lastly, I wanted whatever I put on the truck to look good as I have put a lot of time and $ into fixing up this old truck and I didn't want it to look cheezey.....

Thanks to the good folks at etrailer I ended up with somewhat of a hybrid approach (my choice) but it worked out exactly as I envisioned it. I purchased the Thule Xsporter Pro system for the rear which works well with only minor modifications to the truck. I can lower it easily so I can get the truck into the garage without removing the system altogether. I really like that the tailgate is still functional with the system installed as some others I had in mind were bumper or hitch attached and would not allow use of the tailgate.... And, lastly it looks nice enough to just leave it on all the time.

On the front I chose the Yakima JetStream cross bar held up by a pair of Yakima SkyLine Towers and Landing Pads which I chose because I can easily remove the crossbar/towers to get the truck into my garage. The Landing Pads have covers for when not in use and are small enough to not be too noticeable.

I also added the security locks for peace of mind.

I have added 3 pictures, the first shows the Landing Pads without the towers & crossbar. You can also see the Xsporter Pro on the rear in its lowered position. The 2nd shot is a closeup of the Skyline Tower. The 3rd picture shows the entire system installed ready for my kayaks (or whatever).

Thanks again to the folks at etrailer for their expert advice and customer service.

First trip with the new rail system and it looks like it worked out just fine. Thanks to both of you and Kimberly for all of your help and follow up I do appreciate it.

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


Easy Install.

But, the instructions
tell you torque bolts to 48 in lbf or 5.4 Nm, with the L shape security wrench.
How do you apply a specific torque to a L shaped wrench?
Can't put a torque wrench on it.
My question and reason for 4 stars is for Yakima. Why not supply a preset torque driver like the one supplied for the Skyline Tower installation?

Overall I'm quite pleased.


Comments
Thank you for your review. That is a good question. I would use another wrench or hollow nut driver as leverage to tighten the L wrench down.

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


The Yakima roof rack system is an Outstanding product. I purchased the product to replace the OEM roof rack because it was too flimsy to carry the tandem bike mount and my bike. The Yakima roof rack is solid and provides me the peace of mind while hauling my bike on the roof of my car. etrailer provided the product for the best price as always.

Still an outstanding product

The Landing Pad 15 was exactly what I needed for 2019 Subaru Outback Yakima Sky Line Towers. I am 5'3" older lady and was able to install the entire system with Jet Stream crossbars without assistance, thanks to videos. (Yakimas instructions are photo only). But I really want to commend your company on the website, shipping, video tutorials, personalized communication, and follow up. Great job etrailer!

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


Installation was relatively easy, instructions were clear and easy to follow. These are medium duty mounts, secured by a single bolt per pad, and suitable for kayaks and other moderate loads on-road, which is exacly what I'm using them for. The manual specifically calls out against using these for off-road applications.
I'd suggest that anm installer cleans all surfaces to be sealed (bolt holes and the area around them)thoroughly with isopropanol to guarantee a long-term leakproof bond for the silicone sealant. Vibration, tensile and shear stresses, thermal cycling and other environmental factors really stress sealants in these sorts of applications.
All in all, I'm satisfied with the mount design's suitability for its intended application. I just wish Yakima would manufacture their stuff anywhere other than mainland China.

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


I bought a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. To use my Yakima Skyline Towers, I had to install these landing pads in the rack rail attached to the roof. The installation was easy, and the pads serve their purpose. But they don't seem to be engineered as secure as I would like. They have more flexibility than I think they should. The bolt head is over an inch from where it screws into the roof. I think Yakima could have engineered something more secure. In fairness to Yakima, the Jeep rack rail is different than any other rack system I've seen and is incompatible with any other system. But I am assuming that these landing pads will work OK with a full load and that the Yakima engineers have done an adequate job. This summer they will be put to the test for 3,000 miles. Note: the Yakima windshield fairing falls on the glass in the moon roof rendering the moon roof unopenable so long as the fairing is used.

  • Replacement Yakima Landing Pad for 2004 Honda Element
    Thank you for all of the information and the pictures! According to Yakima the only landing pad that has ever been used for a 2004 Honda Element is the Landing Pad 9 # Y00229 which sits on top of those black trim sections on your roof. I reached out to my contact at Yakima who also confirmed this. I'm thinking that whoever installed this roof rack kit used a custom option that you would drill through the roof to install because the feet locations in your pictures sit well in front of where...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2007 Honda Element SC
    Yakima is our only manufacturer that offers roof rack fits for the SC models of the 2007 Honda Element like what you mentioned. For that the Corebar rack part numbers # Y00422, # Y00148, and # Y00229 would be a really great option. It's an aero bar design which means minimal wind noise and affected fuel mileage.

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2006 Honda Element
    I reached out to my contact at Yakima and the Q towers will not work on either of the vehicles mentioned. For the 2006 Honda Element, you will need the following: Round 58" CrossBars for Yakima Roof Rack System # Y00409 SkyLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Fixed Mounting Points# Y00148 RoundBar SL Adapter # Y03536 Landing Pad 9 # Y00229 We don't have any fit for the 2008 Jeep Liberty with flat rails from any of our manufacturers.

  • Recommended Roof Rack System for 2006 Honda Element Used For Roof Top Tent
    It looks like your 2006 Honda Element has fixed mounting points, so you'll need to make sure that the center of each mounting point is at least 28" apart to use a Roofnest Sparrow tent. For a roof rack I recommend using the Yakima Roof Rack for 2006 Honda Element that uses parts # Y00426, # Y00148 and # Y00229, which will give you a durable roof rack capable of carrying the Sparrow XL. This system uses aerodynamic crossbars that will limit wind noise and you can add locks with part # Y07204...

    Thank you for the photo of your 2007 Honda Element for which you want a roof rack that will allow use of the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898. The Hullavator Pro requires that the host roof rack have bar spacing of at least 24-inches, a minimum of 28.5-inches of available bar space, and it also requires that the bars extend outside of the rack feet 4 to 8-inches on both sides.

  • Would Rhino Rack Roof Basket part # RMCB02 fit a 2003 Honda Element
    The Rhino Rack cargo basket part # RMCB02 can fit a wide range of crossbar dimensions. It can fit crossbars that are up to 3-1/2" wide x 1-1/4" tall and spaced between 25-1/2" - 43". Most likely this would fit the factory bars of your 2003 Honda Element but Rhino Rack does not have your vehicle in their fit guide at this time so you would need to measure the dimensions and spread of your rack to see if this would fit.
