BaseLine Towers

The heavy-duty BaseLine towers allow you to mount 2 Yakima crossbars (sold separately) to your vehicle with a naked roof. The towers can be adjusted during installation to ensure your crossbars are level and that the rack is seated correctly on your roof. The BaseLines' versatile BarBeds accommodate Yakima's full line of crossbars. The towers install with Yakima's DropHook system and BaseClips (sold separately).


Versatile BarBed

Versatile BaseLine BarBed

The BaseLine's BarBed is specifically designed to work with Yakima's entire line of crossbars.


CoreBar CrossbarJetStream Crossbar

The BarBed is curved to accommodate the elliptical shape of the CoreBar and JetStream crossbar. The CoreBar includes brackets that slide over the bar and secure to the towers with bolts. The JetStream attaches directly to the tower with bolts.


RoundBar CrossbarRoundBar Adapter

The towers also work with Yakima RoundBars with adapters (Y03536 - sold separately). The adapters slide over the bars and secure to the towers with bolts.


Included Torque Tool

The crossbars mount to the BaseLine towers with the included torque tool. The tool clicks 3 times once you've reached the correct amount of torque so you don't have to worry about over- or under-tightening. This is the only tool you will need to secure the bars to the towers and the towers to your roof.


Adjustable Pitch and Toe Angle

BaseLine Pitch and Toe Diagram

The pitch and toe angle of each tower adjusts to provide a level mounting surface and to ensure the rack is seated correctly on your roof. To set up, install the towers on your crossbars and place them so the bottoms of the towers are facing up. Next, adjust the pitch and toe angle to the correct position as indicated by your fit kit's instruction manual. The pitch adjustments are labeled A, B, and C, and the toe angle adjustments are labelled 1, 2, and 3. Once these are set place the rack on your roof.


Secure Installation with DropHook System

BaseLine DropHook System

The towers install with custom-fit BaseClips (sold separately). To mount a tower remove the cover, open the door inside the assembly, and attach the BaseClip to the hook inside the tower. The clip adjusts on 3 axes as you tighten it to ensure a safe and secure fit. Once the clip is tightened down, close the door to secure the clip in place.


Same Key System Locks

4 Pack SKS Lock Cores

BaseLine towers are compatible with Yakima SKS lock cores (Y07204 - sold separately) that allow you to secure the roof rack to your roof. The SKS locks are all keyed alike so a single key opens all the locks. The locks can also be swapped out to make all of your Yakima products keyed alike.

Really easy to install & work as specified. So happy with the customer support/service at etrailer.

Your notice of schemes was a lot better than the yakima site provided. They did not suggest the scheme you did.

But when the products arrived, the instructions were by yakima. Generally worked as instructed except the tower to tower transverse mounting dimensions needed to be tweaked for a perfect fit.

So far so good. Purchased these towers to use on a 2022 GMC Canyon with HD bars that I already had, primarily to carry my canoe. Yakima's fitting instructions worked perfectly and the whole system seems really solid.

Ackage came 2 days early the install was somewhat easy (did it by myself)
Did not get to mount anything to it but seems really sturdy. One thing I can say is mark out your mounting points with provided stickers then put up and make adjustments to the roof rack.

  • Minimum Crossbar Length for Yakima Roof Rack on 2019 Honda Ridgeline
    According to Yakima, the shortest crossbars that will work on your Ridgeline is their 'medium' crossbar which is the 60 inch long # Y00426. If you go any shorter than that, the bar won't be long enough to properly connect to the roof rack feet. To provide a rack, if you have the bare roof you'd need the following: 60 Inch Crossbars, part # Y00426 BaseLine Towers, part # Y28TR Vehicle Specific BaseClips, part # Y06152 If your Ridgeline has the side rails on the roof, you'd use the same...

  • Yakima Roundbar Roof Rack System Options For A 2024 Kia Seltos LX
    Yakima currently only has confirmed fits for 2024 Kia Seltos models if they have raised or flush side rails so the naked roof towers # Y28TR you were looking at don't currently have a fit kit to make them work yet. If you have raised side rails then you would need TimberLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y33TR in order to use the RoundBar SL Adapter # Y03536 and Yakima RoundBar Crossbars # Y00408. If you have flush mount side rails then you would need the SightLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation For 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude With Black Flush Rails
    Thank you for the photo of your roof on the Altitude you have. That helps a lot when trying to find the right items for your Jeep. Since there are no mounting points on your Jeep roof or on the all black rails you have, the roof rack I recommend is the Yakima JetStream roof rack. This roof rack uses clips to attach to the inside of the door jamb. To order this roof rack you will need part # Y00426, part # Y28TR, and part # Y06121.

  • Replacement Clips For Yakima Towers On 2013 Nissan Rogue
    On your 2013 Nissan Rogue, there are only two Yakima towers confirmed to fit. The baseline towers # Y28TR are for the models without existing rails or crossbars. They will require the BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06123 and # Y06135. These towers will work with a variety of rails. The other towers are for the raised factory rails and don't require any clips, so you must have the baseline towers. The # Y06135 are for the rear crossbar towers and the # Y06123 is for the front crossbar towers.

    I called my contact at Yakima about your 2012 Highlander.

The Yakima roof rack we have that is a confirmed fit for your Highlander has three components. To order this roof rack you would need part # Y00426, # Y28TR, and # Y06129.

  • Do Yakima JetStream Crossbars Fit a 2015 Lincoln MKX with Panoramic Roof
    Actually, the Yakima JetStream roof rack has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Lincoln MKX with the panoramic roof. You may not be able to open the roof depending on how much clearance there is between it and the bottom of the crossbars or the mounting hardware of anything on the crossbars. So use caution once you have the rack on our Lincoln. You need the 50 inch JetSreams # Y00425 in black. Along with the BaseLine towers, part # Y28TR, and BaseClips, part # Y06180.

This gives aerodynamically shaped bars that are 60 inches length which will work really great on your 2020 Honda Pilot.

    For your 2018 Ford F-250 Crew Cab the Yakima Roof Rack part numbers # Y00422, # Y28TR, and # Y06185 would be a great solution as it is a confirmed fit and the fact that it does not permanently modify the roof of the vehicle it is installed on. So you'd be able to take the roof off when it's time to return the lease and no one would know the difference. The aero shape of these bars also helps cut down on wind noise which is a nice feature as well. I attached an install video for thist...

    With aftermarket roof racks you really don't want to open the sunroof of the vehicle as it will create quite a bit of noise. I checked with other roof rack manufacturers and Yakima, for example, only has the line: If your vehicle is equipped with a sunroof or panoramic glass roof, prior to operation, ensure adequate clearance exists with roof rack and/or accessories installed. So the Yakima JetStream rack part numbers # Y00426, # Y28TR, and # Y06152 would be a great option that has similar...
