So I set this up for my wife's rig for our trip to Pismo Beach, and gotta say loving it! May end up getting one for my other car!

I've been slowing outfitting both of my Subaru's and etrailer.com has been my go to resource not only do they have alot of gear to choose from but shipping and customer service is top-notch! You'll get a followup after your purchase with help/videos on how to properly install if you are a DIYer don't install untill after you have reviewed, as there are alot of helpful hints so your install is smooth.

Great product and got it fast! Quick installation, definitely I’m ordering more stuff from this company.

If you need extra flexibility for carrying items with t-slot mounts this platform is great. We got it for or Audi Q7, primarily because in addition to carrying various stuff we needed to carry a spare tire (Audi just gives a can of goo for your flats) while towing. In addition to the t slots the slats also give lots of flexibility for strapping/ratchet strap mounts etc. Be warned the Yakima mounting accessories are VERY expensive. Quality is very good (except perhaps the plastic parts of the frame gave me pause), it is very sturdy and assembly is straighforward. Although not receommended, we were able to mount a rooftop box. I heard a rumor they may be coming out with t slot roofbox mount kits if you don't want to DIY. Note the box needs to have a flat bottom (lots of the Thule boxes won't work).

Love it! Used it on our Subaru Outback when we wanted a firmer and wider platform than the stock crossbars. The platform is even more useful than I thought because you can mount accessories (e.g., canoe carriers) all the way to the edge if you use the T-channel to secure them. I would've probably gotten one size smaller had I realized that.

Great project, easy to put together and install

My order arrived quickly with personal customer service. Glad I took a risk as a first time buyer. I could not be more impressed or satisfied.

Mounted to the top of my 2018 F-150 Super Crew Cab. Had Yakima Baselines, with HD Bars, HD Bar Adapters and the locknload crossbar adapters. Wished I was able to install it without crossbars as it requires that I buy them, also adds a bit of height to the the locknload as well.

Very well built, had my wife (125lbs) walking around on it after I mounted the locknload. Took about an hour to assemble the locknload and maybe another hour or two of adjusting the bars to where I wanted the locknload to sit on the roof. Other than it looks a bit too high I do love them. Will probably see what I can do about lowering the locknload in the future.

Lots of wind noise. Good rack overall

I am going to include the Landing Pads, Skyline Towers, LockNLoad adapters, and Pivoting Mounts that are all required for my vehicle in this review of the 84" x 54" LockNLoad Platform. First, I had done months of research trying to figure out what would work and meet my needs for a 2008 GMC Yukon XL. Without the help of etrailer's agent, Ashley, I'd probably still be trying to figure things out! Ashley was patient and thorough, she made sure I had all the parts I needed for a fairly complex (and large!)project. I cannot thank her enough!
On to the assembly and installation: Ashley confirmed that following instructions was key to efficient building - I found that combining online instructions with the included hard copies worked best. As an example, the online fastener images and descriptions are far better than the paper ones. Then, having the paper instructions in hand made "in the moment" progress much faster. All of the Yakima parts fit together perfectly, and by methodically following the instructions (I cannot stress this enough!), including pre assembling Landing Pads, Towers, and Pivoting Mounts, there was no need to backtrack. Once I had a day to devote to the project, everything went very smoothly. Placing the large Platform on the mounts does require two people, but the rest was easy for one fairly handy person to accomplish. Making adjustments to be sure the Platform is centered and square to the roof took some time but it's worth it in the end. Again, thanks to etrailer and particularly Ashley! It was a pleasure doing business with you!

This thing added a great deal of flexibility to my 4Runner. Rock solid and almost limitless options for roof storage allowed me to customize it to transport a kayak and roof box that would never have been possible otherwise.



by:

Love the Yakima LocknLoad 55x49 Platform.. would have been nicer if it was just a few inches longer. Fits really well on the 2019 Grand Cherokee.. and looks even better but at highway speeds (60mph+) you will hear it up there... I've also noticed .5 mpg less which is no biggie...I didn't think the Landing Pads (18) were very stable but once in place.. its rock solid!



by:

Great service! Jon was great. Thank you

Quick quick service and delivery. Would definitely purchase from them again.

  • Does Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack Need to be Put Together Right Out of the Box
    You will need to put the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars # Y05045-39 together out of the box. There are actually very few (if any) platform racks like this that come put together simply because it would increase the size of the shipping box. Attached is a review video for you to check out as well as a link to the installation instructions for you to reference so you can see what putting this together entails.

  • What Is The Dimensions Of The T-Track On The Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack?
    I spoke with Yakima, and they informed me that the t-track on the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars # Y05045-39 measures 8mm (.31") high, and measures 11mm (.43") wide. Attached is a diagram of depicting these measurements for you to check out as well.

    The correct size Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars that will work on an ARE HX Truck Bed Cap with 56" crossbar spread is part # Y05047-39 which measures 84" long x 49" wide. The 84" length is a must as this is the only option for the larger spread.

  • Can Yakima LockNLoad Hold a 35 inch Spare Tire Plus Awnings
    If your spare tire has a 35" diameter then yes, the 60" Long x 54" Wide Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack # Y05045-39 will have enough surface area for your tire. You can use the Spare Tire Carrier Kit # Y05032 to accomplish this. I looked up your OVS 180 Degree Nomadic Awning and it looks like they have a mounting bracket designed for Yakima roof racks. If you use that bracket you should be able to mount an awning in any of the T-Slots on this rack. The LockNLoad doesn't have a specified...

  • What Size Yakima LockNLoad Platform Can I Put On My Trucks Camper Shell?
    You can use the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack On your A.R.E. HD MX Series Truck Cap. The mounting hardware wraps around your crossbars to secure it into place. If you have 2 crossbars on the roof, the largest platform you can put up there is 60" by 54" # Y05045-39. If you have 3 crossbars on top, you can use this larger platform # Y05048-39 which is 84" by 54". If you only have two, I think it would be best to get another crossbar and get the longer platform. Make your truck do more!

  • Platform Roof Rack For Yakima & Thule Accessories
    There is a platform you can use but the Inno is not compatible with the Yakima and Thule accessories you have. That's more of a platform to carry larger things that you tie down. What will work though is a platform from Yakima, the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars # Y05045-39. This will work so long as your items do have the ability to fit into the T-slots.

  • Can Roof Rack Accessories Designed for Crossbar Top Channels Fit Yakima LockNLoad
    The channels on top of the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars like the part # Y05045-39 are designed to accommodate roof rack accessories that were designed to attach to crossbar top channels. So basically any track nut designed for roof rack installed accessory top channels is goin to work like the # 853-2106 but you really will want to base it off what the accessory is and whether it was designed for top channel install.

  • Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack For OverHaul HD Ladder Rack on 2020 Ford F-150 w/ 5-1/2' Bed
    Yep, you do have it right, the correct LockNLoad platform for your OverHaul HD is the 60" x 54", and you'll need the option with the crossbar clamps: - Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars - Aluminum - 60" Long x 54" Wide # Y05045-39 As for the crossbar spacing, per Yakima the correct spacing for the 60" x 54" LockNLoad is between 27" and 39", so you will need to make an adjustment.

  • Can Yakima LockNLoad be Installed on 2021 Toyota 4Runner OEM Roof Rack
    Great question! The OEM roof rack on your 2021 Toyota 4Runner looks nice but it sits too low to your roof for the Yakima LockNLoad # Y05045-39 mounting hardware to fit. Instead of purchasing a roof rack AND the LockNLoad what I recommend doing is picking up the parts to mount the LockNLoad directly to the raised rails on your 4Runner: 60" Long x 54" Wide LockNLoad # Y05045 SL Adapter # Y05042-2 TimberLine Towers # Y33TR We don't have any brackets designed to fit with the ARB awnings...

  • Will Yakima 60x54 Lock/Load Platform Fit 60 inch Crossbar Spread
    According to Yakima the 60" Long x 54" Wide Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars # Y05045-39 will be too short when it comes to mounting for crossbars that are 60" apart and you need to go with the larger 84" Long x 49" Wide version which is part # Y05047-39. The thing about this though is that the larger platform rack requires 3 crossbars to be safely used so you will need to add another crossbar to your A.R.E. HD CX Series Bed Cap.

The Replacement T-Bolt item # Y8880184 you were looking at are M10 bolts and wouldn't work. Any extra length of the Replacement M8 T-Bolt # 853-0782 can be cut off.

    The Yakima MajorShady 270 Awning # Y82AV mounting channels are 4-1/2" apart while the Rhino-Rack Sunseeker and Batwing Awning Mounting Bracket # RR43259 has the furthest holes spaced out 4" apart so these aren't able to be used together. You can mount the MajorShady 270 on a roof rack via the T-Slots or to one of the Yakima LockNLoad platforms, like part # Y05045-39, though.

    I have an answer for you. Unfortunately, we do not carry any mounting brackets that are confirmed to work with your EAG rack or your Smittybilt Defender rack because we do not sell those brands. We do carry brackets like the Universal MightyMounts for Yakima Roof Mounted Accessories # Y03590 but they are not confirmed to fit other brands of racks.

The 62 inch width won't work though as it's just too wide and you can't leave off the crossbars; the platform does need to attach directly to them.
