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.

  • Height Added To The Roof Of My Vehicle When Using The Yakima Showdown # Y04081
    The Yakima Baseline towers # Y28TR with the landing pad 19 will leave you about 5-1/4 inches from the top of your bar to the roof of your 2020 Honda CR-V. That being said the Yakima Showdown # Y04081 will sit about 9 inches up from the top of your bar when the kayaks are not loaded.

  • 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...

  • Availability of Whispbar Roof Rack for 2011 Ford Fiesta
    I do have a great roof rack solution for you, however the Whispbar Custom Fit Kit that you referenced is designed for certain model GM pickup trucks and won't work on your Ford Fiesta. There isn't a Whispbar system currently in production that will fit your vehicle. For a similar high-quality roof rack that will work great on your 2011 Ford Fiesta I highly recommend the Yakima JetStream system that consists of # Y00425 for the two 50" JetStream Crossbars, # Y28TR for the BaseLine Towers,...

  • Long Crossbar Roof Rack Recommendation for 2020 Honda Pilot with Naked Roof
    For your 2020 Honda Pilot with a naked roof the roof rack we have with the longest crossbars is the Yakima Jetstream rack part # Y00426, # Y28TR, and # Y06152. This gives aerodynamically shaped bars that are 60 inches length which will work really great on your 2020 Honda Pilot. I attached a picture of what this looks like installed as well as an install video as well.

  • Comparing Thule and Yakima Roof Racks For Durability On a 2018 Honda Pilot
    The Thule and Yakima roof racks are both excellent options for a 2018 Honda Pilot. In regards to durability, it would really be hard to make an argument for one being better than the other as they both use pretty much the same materials and all parts are coated. That said, rust/corrosion is not really an issue we hear about for roof rack. I prefer the Yakima Jetstream Crossbar System part # Y00426, part # Y28TR, and part # Y06152 which is currently the most cost effective.

  • Recommended Yakima Roof Rack for a 2019 Ford F-150 SuperCrew

This Yakima roof rack has aero shaped crossbars which produce the least amount of noise, integrated channels for use with channel mounted accessories, and a custom fit for a sleek appearance.

    The Yakima Roof Rack Kit for a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee that uses parts # Y00426, # Y28TR and # Y06121 is a great choice and I don't think you can ever go wrong with Yakima products; they're durable and easy to install. The Baseline Towers # Y28TR and landing pads # Y06121 will clamp onto your flush mounted rails easily, like the dealer mentioned. This rack has 60" Jetstream bars that are aerodynamic and will provide you with a ton of useable bar space, so it's just a great all around roof...

They are aero-style crossbars, making them compatible with most accessories while cutting down on wind noise and resistance. They are 60" long and have a capacity of 165 pounds. To mount these to your Jetta, you will need the BaseLine Towers, part # Y28TR, and the BaseClip Fit Kit, part # Y06117. I've linked to a video review of the towers and fit kit below. The SeaSucker...

  • Recommended Yakima Roof Rack for a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude
    For starters, the correct Yakima roof rack for your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude is the Yakima JetStream Crossbar System part # Y00426, part # Y28TR, and part # Y06121. Unfortunately, we have not yet had a chance to install this system on a Grand Cherokee. However, we have had a chance to install this very same system minus the vehicle specific car clips on a similar vehicle, a 2017 Dodge Durango. If you take a look at this video you will get a very good ideal of how the kit installs...

  • Can I Purchase the Base Clips Individually without the Rubber Pads for a 2002 VW Jetta
    If you just need the metal clamps from the BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06166 for your 2002 Volkswagen Jetta you'll have to unfortunately purchase the whole kit - I confirmed this with my contact at Yakima. In addition to your crossbars and clamps, you will need the Baseline towers # Y28TR to mount your crossbars system to your 2002 Jetta. Also, if you are planning to mount Yakima HD crossbars, you will need the HD Bar SL Adapter # Y03541 to mount the HD bars...

  • Correct Yakima BaseClips For a 2020 Honda CR-V With A Naked Roof
    Yes, that is correct. If you already have the Yakima BaseLine Towers, part # Y28TR, and the Yakima crossbars, all you will need are the two Yakima BaseClip Fit Kits for the BaseLine Towers, part # Y06188, and part # Y06189. I have included product descriptions for the fit kits and a video link of 2018 Honda CR-V Yakima BaseLine roof rack installation below. I know it is not the same year as your CR-V, but they are the same generation, so there will be some similarities.

  • Round Bar Towers for Honda Passport
    I have a kit that would be perfect for your set up. I would get the BaseLine Towers # Y28TR and BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06152 to get the feet attached to your roof. Then you will need the RoundBar SL Adapter # Y03536 to get your round Yakima Roof Bars secured to your roof rack foot packs. This kit will look and work the best on the roof of your 2021 Honda Passport since you already have round Yakima roof bars.

    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...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Ford F-150 with Panoramic Roof
    Yakima has a roof rack option that will fit models of the 2017 Ford F-150 that have the panoramic roof. Keep in mind though they state not to open a sunroof or panoramic roof because they may interfere with some accessories. If you have a Super Crew Cab or SuperCab you can use bars # Y00426, BaseLine towers # Y28TR, and 2 sets of clips # Y06122. There isn't an option for the regular cab (if the panoramic roof was even an option for the regular cab models). A popular kayak carrier that...
