SkyLine Towers

The heavy-duty SkyLine towers allow you to mount 2 Yakima crossbars (sold separately) to your vehicle with fixed mounting points, flush side rails, or tracks. The towers adjust during installation to ensure your crossbars are level. The SkyLines' versatile BarBeds accommodate Yakima's full line of crossbars. The towers install with Yakima's Landing Pad system (sold separately).


Versatile BarBed

SkyLine BarBed

The SkyLine'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.


Torque Tool

The crossbars mount to the SkyLine 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.


Simple Installation with Landing Pads

SkyLine with LandingPad

The towers install with custom-fit Landing Pads (sold separately). To mount a tower simply open the cover, set the tower on the Landing Pad, and close the cover.


SkyLine Cover

Mounting posts on the bottom of the tower extend when the cover is closed to lock the tower in place on the Landing Pad.


SkyLine Pitch Diagram

Each tower's pitch can be adjusted up to 6 degrees forward or backward during installation. This lets you create a level mounting surface for your gear even on a curved roof. Simply loosen the bolt near the top of the tower assembly, adjust the position of your bar, and then re-tighten the bolt.


Same Key System Locks

4 Pack SKS Lock Cores

SkyLine 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.

These crossbars were easy to install and adjust. Be sure to get all the pieces you need. There is no mention of the Landing Pads necessary to use these.

Very nice quality towers. Very heavy duty! They have a cool "snap" on / off mechanism for quick removal and installation.

Yakima SkyLine Towers are well-designed and well-executed. They easily fit into the Yakima Landing Pads and form a tight fit when closed. And they also fit nicely into the Yakima JetStream Crossbars when following the Yakima instruction manual and various YouTube videos. I did run into a snag at first where I found the rubber seal on one SkyLine Tower getting caught on the JetStream Crossbar track, but after that I was careful not to let that happen with the other towers.
I find the appearance of the Yakima SkyLine Towers to match their level of quality in materials and design.
