Video Transcript for Yakima SkyLine And Control Towers Landing Pad Review

Hi there adventures, today we're gonna be taking a look at Yakima's line of landing pads for their SkyLine Towers. And this is what our pads are gonna look like when they're installed. You can see how they attach directly to our factory raised rails, and they're gonna give us an attachment point so we can install a Yakima roof rack on here easily. And this really nice that you've got an option like this because some people just don't like having their roof rack on all the time, 'cause adding a roof rack does cause extra drag which can cause extra noise; wind noise and various things that you may not want all the time when you're driving around. You might just want this only for when you're using it, when you're going on vacation or different trips. So this is a really quick easy way to be able to take on and off a roof rack and also just a very easy way to get a roof rack installed, because often you have to do a lot of measurements and various things to get a roof rack installed, but this is just goes to factory attachment points, so most of the work is done for you.

Yakima's landing pads are designed to fix directly to the raised side rails and fixed points on your vehicle, giving you an easy attachment point to install a Yakima roof rack. The landing pad is designed to attach directly to Yakima's SkyLine Towers and then you can choose the rails that you want. We're showing off the JetStream rails today. The landing pads are gonna be custom-fit for your Vehicle, so you wanna make sure you use our Fit Guide to ensure you get the correct ones that will attach directly to yours. And I think one of the coolest parts about the landing pads here is how quickly you can remove the SkyLine Towers and rails from them, 'cause maybe you don't like the noise; the wind noise, and some other things that happens by putting a roof rack on your vehicle.

It's as easy as pulling out on the cover, and look at that, it lifts right off. We just pull the cover out on the other side and we can just set these in our garage. And we're ready to use them again, it just drop down in place, the cover pushes back on and that locks it in, and they're not going anywhere. Now one of the things I do recommend is switching out the cover here with a lock. You can get lock kits from Yakima here at etrailer, that will work directly with this and that will protect your investment.

That way nobody can just come up and you saw how easy and quickly it was for me to take this off. So it could work away at a potential camp site or something, so I highly recommend those. I also like that these go directly to a factory attachment point, 'cause even if you've got a factory roof rack, maybe that one's damaged, or maybe it doesn't work with your accessories, because it's just simple bars. This one here has T-slots, you got a lot of different options that you can get on a roof rack with, from Yakima here. So get rid of that old system, whether it's broken or just not working out for you and upgrade to a much better one.

If you have an older set of Yakima Control Towers, those will also attach to the landing pads. Since everything's custom-fit for the vehicle, and its going to fixed mounting points, these are extremely quick and easy to install. You follow along with me, I'll show you how to get it done right now. You'll begin your installation by locating your factory attachment points. Once you find those, you wanna remove the cover, it's gonna be different on every vehicle, but we're just gonna pop the cover off with a screw driver. We now take the hardware that comes in our kit and you'll notice that they're labeled. We've got a B on this one and an A on this one. So with the passenger side, the B is the front one, and A is the rear one; and on the driver side it flops, the A is gonna be the front one, and the B is gonna be the rear one. When you put them in place, you wanna be able to see, read the Yakima, so it's kinda like this, then it would just go just like that. So, we're gonna put our B up by the front one, and we're gonna take the A here at the back, and you'll see there is a hole there, right on top, that's gonna line up with the hole in our landing gear pad, so it's just gonna sit into place on there just like that. You'll then have the upper attachment point here, this is going to sit right on top and you also wanna be able to read the Yakima logo. We can then open it up, you might wanna open it up first, just 'cause it's a little stiff. And you'll see there's a hole in this component as well. We'll take the hardware that comes in our kit, we wanna put one of the washers on it, slide it down in there, and then we can use the included tool to run it right down into the top. We'll then repeat this for this three remaining locations. There's a little bit of lock tight that comes on your bolt, so if it feels a little stiff at a certain point, just be careful and just go faster, you can see here it gets stiff towards the end 'cause of that. Now in order to attach a roof rack to your new landing gear rails, you are gonna need Yakima SkyLine Towers. And then you can use whatever crossbars that you want with this. Now in order to get the rails attached to your SkyLine Feet, you need to use the hardware that comes included with your Yakima bars. It's gonna be different depending on the bars that you use. We're using the JetStream bars, so this is what our hardware is gonna look like. It's got a plastic piece and then this will insert in there, so it will slide into the bar. But this does vary depending on whatever your choice is. If you wanna refer to your instructions so you can get this properly attached, based on the bars that you had chosen. So now you can take your prepared bars, you need to have the cover open 'cause that's what's gonna lock it to our attachment point, and then we're just gonna set it in place. And you may need to adjust it, once we get it on there, we're gonna go ahead and just push that cover up, that's gonna insure this side stays on. And then we can go to our other side, and now we're just gonna even out our bar. And there's actually numbers written on the bottom, so you can just make it, so the numbers on the bottom are at the exact same point on each side. Then just open your cover back up once you've got them centered and tighten them down. There we go, we wanna have three clicks on our device so we get the proper torque. There we go. Close the cover back up and that's gonna lock it in place, and we'll just repeat that on the other side, and then install our front rail the same way. Next we're gonna take the rubber strips that come with your bars, and this is really just only for certain type of bars, you may or may not need to do this depending on the rails that you chose. But if you do have bars like this, we'll then put our strip in place. Wanna make sure that we've got it all the way up against our foot pad on the inside here. And then we're gonna run it all the way across to the other side and then cut it to length. And with the little bit of excess that you've got, you can use this as well to cover up the outside. And we're just gonna repeat this at each attachment point here, you got plenty of excess so if you don't make a great cut, you can always make another. And then we'll just repeat for each bar. And that completes our look at Yakima's line of landing pads for the SkyLine Towers..

Landing Pad 19 for Yakima SkyLine and Control Towers - Qty 4 - Y00245

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (233 Customer Reviews)

Custom-fit Landing Pads attach to the fixed mounting points in your vehicle's flush, factory side rails. The pads create mounting points for Yakima Skyline or Control towers.


I have these installed on a 2022 Honda Pilot. I could not get them to fit on my raised roof rails with the included rubber gaskets. I have mounted them without the gasket but this leaves a gap between the rail and the landing pad. This seems secure but does not have a finished look. I will be trying to see how to get the gaskets to fit.

You definitely want to use the gaskets and I dont recommend using the crossbars without them. Here is an install video that might help you out with this part. Let us know if you still some assistance after watching.
-- Etrailer Expert Andrew N - 10/15/2022


I love the ease of removing my crossbars at the end of the season with these landing pads. Highly recommend these.


Very nice fit to my Bolt EUV


Quick and excellent service!


I have a Buick Envision and it seemed as if it would be difficult to get the correct rack, but it turned out to be easy. I entered my vehicle info and was directed to the Yakima Skyline with flush rails. It was easy to install and they look great. I will be able to take my canoe out with no problem! Joe

2018 Honda Pilot

I like the strength of the Yakima brand and it looks great. It does seem a bit more complicated than might be necessary. I know they have to fit to many different cars but the matching of components is confusing and the installation less than intuitive. The end result is great and etrailers is awesome in every way!

2016 Ford Explorer

Exactly what we needed to use our old Yakima bars and kayak sharks with our new Ford Explorer. Our old car, a Ford Expedition, used the same round Yakima bars and kayak sharks but had a different roof rack. Instead of paying $800+ to get a whole new kayak rack system... the adapters we got from etrailer helped us used all the old equipment :)


Yakima Landing pads are vehicle specific. Good quality mounts are supplied with good stainless steel fasteners. Required as a base for the towers.


Thank you for fast delivery... already installed!


Great company. Fair price. Product as advertised. Fast and free delivety.

    The best easy-load kayak carrier solution is the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 that you referenced which makes loading kayaks much easier as you only have to load them at about waist height and then push the rack and kayak up to the roof with the gas assisted struts. Then for a roof rack for your 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L with flush rails the Yakima Jetstream roof rack part numbers # Y00425, # Y00148, and # Y00245 is the best option since it has channels on top of the load bars for the...

  • 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...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Chevy Bolt with Factory Flush Rails
    Yakima offers a roof rack for your 2017 Chevy Bolt with factory flush rails. For the landing pad you'd want the Yakima Landing Pad 19 part # Y00245, for the feet you'd want the skyline part # Y53TR, and then for crossbars part # Y00425.

  • Quantity of Landing Pads Required for Yakima JetStream Roof Rack on 2017 CRV Touring
    The items needed to order this complete Yakima roof rack system are # Y00425, # Y53TR and # Y00245. These are, respectively, the JetStream Crossbars, SkyLine Towers and Landing Pads. Only 4 are needed, as you correctly noted. So, ordering one of each of the above parts gets you the complete roof rack.

  • 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.

  • Aero Style Crossbar Roof Rack for 2021 Buick Enclave
    Thule hasn't yet released a fit for the 2021 Buick Enclave, but Yakima offers an awesome aero-style setup that uses their # Y53TR SkyLine towers, 50 inch JetStream crossbars in black as part # Y00425. You'll also need the # Y00245 Landing Pad which allows the roof rack towers to attach to the fixed points located in the flush mounted rails on the roof of your Enclave. I've linked to a video showing a typical installation.

    Yakima has a roof rack fit for your 2019 Cadillac XT4 with side rails with the part numbers # Y00245, # Y53TR, and # Y00425 which will give you the very aerodynamic JetStream style of crossbar that will minimize wind noise! The bars also have top channels which makes attaching accessories easy as well.

  • Correct Yakima Landing Pad for 2017 Old Body Style Jeep Compass
    The Yakima Landing Pad 19, part # Y00245 is indeed the correct adapter that would allow you to attach Yakima # Y53TRSkyLine Towers to the fixed mounting points on the roof of your 2017 Old Body Jeep Compass. I've confirmed this with Yakima. For a crossbar, I'd recommend the Yakima JetStream 50 inch crossbars, part # Y00425.

  • Do Locks of Yakima Skyline Towers Lock Fit Kit to Vehicle As Well
    The locks on the Skyline towers of the Yakima Jetstream roof rack that fits your 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV part numbers # Y00425, # Y53TR, and # Y00245 end up locking the bars to the feet, the feet to the landing pad and therefore the landing pad to the vehicle since you have to remove the feet before you can access the fit kit.

  • 60 inch Crossbar Roof Rack Recommendation for 2020 Honda CR-V
    If you went with a Yakima corebar setup you could install a 60 inch aero bar rack. So for that you'd want the SkyLine Towers # Y53TR, Landing Pad 19 # Y00245, and 60 inch bars # Y00422 and you'd be set! This attaches directly to your flush roof rails. I attached an install video for a similar corebar roof rack on a 2016 Honda CR-V for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for a 2019 Chevy Bolt EV with Flush Mounted Rails
    Out of the available selection for your 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV I recommend using the Yakima roof rack. This gives you the aero-style bars for a contemporary look while keeping the 165 lb weight capacity that is the typical max rating for roof racks. This roof rack consists of the 50" JetStream Crossbars # Y00425, the SkyLine Towers # Y53TR, and the Landing Pad 19 # Y00245. I also recommend installing the Yakima SKS Lock Cores # Y07204 to deter theft of your roof rack.

  • Parts Needed to Install Yakima JetStream Crossbars on a 2016 Ford Explorer
    To use the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 on your 2016 Ford Explorer you will also need the SkyLine Towers # Y53TR and the Landing Pad 19 # Y00245. If you would like to add locks to your roof rack then you can do so using part # Y07204. This will give you a great looking roof rack with a 165 lb weight capacity. The crossbar spread is 40 inches so you will need to make sure that your accessories are compatible.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for Tent on 2019 Ford Explorer
    Adding a roof rack with horizontal crossbars to your 2019 Ford Explorer will be required to not only support the weight of the tent and its occupants but also to protect your vehicle's roof. With that being said there is not a roof rack available that features a 600 pound capacity, as they all will still be limited by the capacity of the vehicle's roof, which looks to be 165 pounds on your Ford Explorer. Most roof tents though, such as the Yakima SkyRise Tent # Y07437 that we have available,...

  • Can I Install A Rooftop Tent On My 2021 Honda CR-V With Flush Rails?
    To make sure that you can get the spread you need to have to mount your rooftop tent you'll need to take some measurements. On your flush rails there will be fixed mounting points on the top of the rails. When you have flush rails you won't be able to adjust the spread at all. That is your maximum mounting width. If the fixed mounting points match up to your rooftop tent, you can get a roof rack for your 2021 Honda CR-V. I Recommend getting a hefty system like the Yakima HD Bars # Y01156...

    We do have roof rack systems that fit the flush rails on your 2021 Honda Pilot.

You need the following parts: 50" JetStream Crossbars - Black # Y00425 SkyLine Towers - # Y53TR Landing Pad 19 - # Y00245 Lock Core Kit - # Y07204 (optional) If you let me know what you plan on using the roof rack for I'll be more than happy to make a recommendation...
