Yakima 42" Tracks for Roof Racks - Y01126

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (6 Customer Reviews)

Tracks mount directly to naked-roofed vehicles, creating a strong, low-profile attachment point for Yakima Control Towers with LandingPad 1. Tracks install permanently with PlusNut hardware and allow you to easily move the rack to new positions.


Worked great! By mounting the tracks directly to the rails of my Tonneau Switchback retractable bed cover on this short bed F150 I was able to put a bike rack system using existing Yakima towers and bars. The bike rack can be moved to other Yakima systems and locations easily.


I received all the necessary parts but only by luck. The packing tube split where the rails ended and the mounting hardware started because of the weight differential. Luckily it came through complete. Hardware needs to be distributed along the length of the rails. Product is good. Delivery not so much.


Everything came in complete package with no damage, the instructions were helpful and informational making it easy to install these on my own


It seems like the package arrived before I ordered it. I was amazed how fast it came. Everything was there and installation instructions were complete. Excellent product, well built with a reasonable price. Don't be afraid to do it yourself.


Great communication and fast shipping. Thank you.

  • Yakima Track Length Needed For Truck Cap to Add Roof Rack

  • What Part Of Roof To Install Yakima 42" Tracks for Roof Racks On 2001 Ford F-350
    I was able to find the video you are referring to of an installation of part # Y01127 on the 2004 Ford F-250, our installer does attach the tracks closer to the door because that is the strongest part of the roof. I have attached that video. I contacted Yakima and they said the tracks can be installed anywhere on the roof of 2001 Ford F-350 that works best for you but we like to install them closer to the door for stability.

  • Determining Weight Capacity of Yakima Track Roof Rack for Naked Roof
    The weight capacity of the Yakima 42" Tracks for Roof Racks # Y01126 will be the capacity of the bars used in them which will be 165 lbs most of the time. Now the roof capacity is also a figure you need to stay under as well. They don't have a specific capacity for a sheet metal roof install so you'd have to stay under the capacity of the vehicle roof as stated in the owners manual. When installed properly though you would not have to worry about the tracks popping out. We sell these tracks...

  • Will RetraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover # RTT-80384 Fit with Bullring Tie Down Anchors
    I checked out the BullRing tie down loops you mentioned and they would easily fit with the RetraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover w/ Trax Rails # RTT-80384 that you referenced. This tonneau would not go over the rail or stake pocket enough for it to interfere. The Yakima track kit part # Y01126 that you referenced is not designed for use on truck bed rails so this would not be your best option.

  • What are the Replacement PlusNuts for the Yakima Roof Rack Tracks Made From
    The Yakima PlusNuts replacement part # Y8880039 is the optional hardware kit for Yakima roof rack tracks # Y01126 (42 inch) and # Y01127(54 inch) and are made out of steel. The roof-rack tracks are an anodized aluminum so you wouldn't have any issues using other types of metals.

  • Replacement PlusNut Hardware For Yakima Roof Tracks On 2009 Scion xB
    The Replacement PlusNut Hardware Kit, part # Y8880039 you asked about will work for installing the Yakima 42 inch Tracks part # Y01126, or the Yakima 54 inch Tracks, part # Y01127. I called Yakima and they told me the bolts in the replacement kit are 10-32 mm with a thread pitch of .75. If you do not have the tracks for your 2009 Scion xB, you will want to take a measurement to see which track you need. If you need to order the track, they come with the mounting PlusNut hardware included.

  • Yakima Roof Rack Recommendation for Yakima Tracks Installed on Wrangler Hardtop
    If you have a set of round crossbars you'd be able to reuse them, but with the Yakima track part # Y01126 you can use the Railgrab feet. You'll need a set of the Landing Pad 1 part # Y00221 for each crossbar and then the Control Towers part # Y8890027 for each of the feet. You'll need a total of 4.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix 2 DR Coupe
    I recommend going with a Yakima Roof Track System for your 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix 2 Dr Coupe. This track mounts directly to the roof of your Grand Prix with PlusNut hardware. Installation does require drilling through the roof of your vehicle so if you are uncomfortable doing this yourself, I strongly encourage you to take your vehicle to a local body shop to have the track system installed. Each component for the Yakima Roof Track System is sold separately so in order to have the complete...

    Air Lift 1000 helper springs # AL60815 do indeed fit the 2016 Honda Odyssey! I have linked a video showing an example installation on a 2011 Odyssey. Installation will be similar on your 2016 model. You can install a Yakima roof rack on your 2016 Odyssey with naked roof as well. You will need the following parts: 58 inch crossbars # Y00409 Control towers Y00214 (discontinued) Tracks # Y01126 Landing pads # Y00221 Keep in mind that because it requires a track mount roof rack drilling...

  • Can I Use Yakima SkyLine Towers with Thule Tracks?
    Yes, the tracks themselves recreate the factory C-shaped rack tracks. Thule Tracks # THTP42 and Yakima Tracks # Y01126 have the same C-channel design, but differ in length and how they mount to the vehicle. To use your SkyLine Towers # Y00148 with these tracks, you need the Yakima Landing Pad 1 # Y00221. This is the mount that fits directly into track systems and can be used with SkyLine or Control Towers.

  • Parts Needed to Mount Yakima SkyBox Cargo Box to Top of Artic Fox Truck Camper
    The Yakima SkyBox 18 Cargo Box, # Y07336, is designed to be mounted on a roof rack system. In order to mount the cargo box on the top of your Artic Fox camper, you will need to install a roof track system like the Yakima which would consist of the following: Yakima 42 Inch Tracks, # Y01126, Control Towers, # Y8890027, and Landing Pad, # Y00221, Qty 2 and Round 58" CrossBars, # Y00409.

  • Parts Needed to Use Yakima SkyLine Tower Setup from ARE Truck Camper on 1998 Jeep Wrangler
    To use your Yakima SkyLine setup on your 1998 Jeep Wrangler you just need the 42" Tracks # Y01126 and 2 sets of the Landing Pad 1 # Y00221. This will then allow you to easily transfer the SkyLine Towers # Y00148 and whatever crossbars you are currently using, like the 50" JetStream # Y00425. Just be sure that the crossbars from your ARE camper shell don't stick out further than the side mirrors on your Jeep. I have attached installation instructions for you to check out.

    We do have roof rack options that will allow you to use a Rhino Rack roof rack on your van with a fiberglass roof.

  • Roof Rail Recommendation for a 24 ft RV
    The Rhino-Rack Artificial Rain Gutters, # 739A, require a M6 bolt. The bolts that are included with the rain gutters are M6 x 25mm (6mm diameter and about 1 inch long). If you think you will need a longer bolt, you should be able to find one with the appropriate length at a local hardware store. Unfortunately Rhino-Rack does not offer longer bolts for this kit. Since you will be mounting these on an RV, there are a few things you will want to take into consideration. First, you will have...

  • What are the Longest Crossbars You Carry to Mount Solar Panels on Tracks?
    I think you are asking whether you can put 2 of the Thule Top Track System # THTP42 right next to each other in order to have a longer crossbar system. While this is technically possible, you will have the endcaps of the crossbars that interfere. With this interval of space, you will not have connection points at those areas for your solar panels. All that being said, it is better to get a longer crossbar with the tracks instead of putting two crossbars end-to-end. For that route, I recommend...

  • Replacement Hardware for Yakima 60" Roof Rack Tracks
    The Replacement PlusNut Hardware for Yakima Roof Rack Tracks # Y8810102 works only to replace the original PlusNut and washer on Yakima 42" # Y01126 or 54" # Y01127. For the complete hardware kit see Replacement PlusNut Hardware Kit # Y8880039. For your Yakima 60" Roof Rack Tracks # Y01135 you need replacement kit # Y8810155 since we don't sell individual parts for this kit separately. This kit includes 12 capnuts, 12 bolts, 9 black nylon washers and 13 white nylon washers.

  • Can Yakima Tracks Work on Truck Cap and Roof
    You can add the Yakima Tracks for Roof Racks, which come in 60" # Y01135, 54" # Y01127 or 42" # Y01126 to your 2015 Ford F-150 although I could not tell from the photo if there was a space between the truck cap and the roof of your truck. If there is a space between them you wouldn't want to install just the two tracks per side as that wouldn't be fully secure. As for the rivets showing, they won't specifically, but the CapNuts in the hardware would show because you need to drill through...

  • Can Roof Rack Tracks be Installed on A.R.E. Truck Cap
    Tracks can absolutely be installed on the roof of your A.R.E. Truck Cap to provide a mounting system for a roof rack. For this I recommend the Yakima Tracks, which come in 42 inch # Y01126, 54 inch # Y01127, and 60 inch # Y01135 lengths. These tracks are specifically designed for camper shells or truck caps like yours. To complete the setup you will just need the Landing Pad 1 # Y00221 (for which you will need a quantity of 2), 4 of the Yakima Control Tower part # Y8890027, and a set...

  • Can Yakima Tracks for Roof Racks be Slightly Bent During Install on Tear Camper
    I reached out to Yakima in regards to bending the Yakima 42" Tracks for Roof Racks # Y01126 and they told me that yes it is okay to bend the tracks during the installation. For the rest of the installation you can use a quantity of two of the Landing Pad 1 # Y00221, along with four of the Yakima Control Tower # Y8890027 and round bars like the 58 inch # Y00409, 66 inch # Y00410, or 78 inch # Y00411, depending on the size of your camper's roof.

  • 2012 Toyota Sienna Roof Rack Recommendation for Roof Top Tent
    For 2012 Toyota Sienna I recommend going with the Yakima JetStream roof rack setup. This mounts to the raised rails on your vehicle and it uses straps for the rails as opposed to the Landing Pad setup: 50" JetStream Crossbars - Black # Y00425 TimberLine Towers - # Y00147 Lock Core Kit - # Y07204 (optional) You can mount an aftermarket rail system to the roof of your Sienna but you'll have to remove the OEM raised rails to accomplish this.

  • Can I Put a Tent on Top of My 1995 Jeep YJ with a Hardtop?
    While we do have roof rack systems that will fit your jeep, the issue is that your roof has a maximum weight capacity of 100 lbs. Even if you got the roof rack system with parts # Y00426, # Y01126, # Y00148, # Y00221, you wouldn't have enough weight capacity for a tent. For example, the Yakima Sky Rise Tent # Y07436 weighs 101 lbs on its own and requires a roof weight capacity of at least 165 lbs.
