Claws with Pin Adapters for Yakima RailGrab Roof Rack Towers - Y8880201

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (32 Customer Reviews)

This kit includes 4 upper and 4 lower custom RailGrab claws with pin adapters. The custom claws provide roof-rack fits for Audi A4, A6, Q5 and Q7.


Product arrived earlier than stated, and fit as expected. Had a great summer on the ocean fishing for cod in part to these little pin adapters. Fit my 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe reasonably well and had no issues supporting my 83 pound kayak on yakima roof rack.


I ordered these thinking it would work for my sons 2018 Audi Q7. The short claw with pin adaptor did not work with his Audi but the part that holds the claw worked with the Railgrab short claws I ordered for my 2005 Honda Pilot. etrailer staff were helpful in answering my questions.


I needed adapters for my old Yakima roof rack to attach it to my new Audi Q5. It was really easy to place my order with and the parts arrived 2 days later. Outstanding service!

Drove 680 miles today with 2 bikes on the rack with nary a squeak from my roof rack.

These pins allowed me to reuse my Yakima Railgrab rack on our 2009 Q7, which I am very thankful for since I didn't necessarily want to buy a new rack if I didn't have to. However, the angle of the adapters doesn't allow for full insertion of the pins into the corresponding holes of the Q7's flush rails. It works, but doesn't have the proper fit and finish expected.


Yakima OEM part (high quality metal parts). Purchased for my 2016 Kia Sorento. Pins fit my factory rail holes though they are about half the diameter of the rail holes. For my car, only needed the pins as the small claws that came with the pins were actually too small so I switched back to original (longer) claws that came with my Railgrabs. I don't get three points of contact against my factory rails (as Yakima recommends) due to their unique design but the bars are installed very tight to the factory rails and I only put a basket on top with beach chairs (not bikes).


Great deal. Genuine product. Fast delivery.
was a hard to find, discontinued part that I needed!


I used these to attach onto my Toyota Venza. I would venture to guess any roof rack that has a screw hole embedded on the inside of the roof rail will accept these, not just Audi. Very happy and haven't had any issues.


I haven't used these yet but. Ordering and shipping were a breeze. I plan on putting a hitch on my car soon and will be ordering from strainer again just because of the fast and personable service.


Perfect accessory to adapt the RaiGrab rack to fit the flush mounted roof rails on a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee.


Love the rack. Fits and looks great!


This product was easy to install and works great on a 2014 Santa Fe sport woth the railgrabs and roundbar.


The right part for adapting your Yakima gear to the Audi Q5. Great service from etrailer. Received it fast.


Once again, terrific service from etrailer. Thanks for your prompt shipping, and outstanding pricing. Every experience with etrailer has been delightful.


Excellent product. Arrived very fast. Fit perfectly to replace worn parts on my Yakima rack.


I was very please to find a small hard to obtain part to complete my Yakima Tower that I bought on eBay.


Allowed me to use my existing Yakima Grab Rail rack on my 2014 Audi Q7. Perfect.


I so love customer service ever and high quality stuff


Perfect fit, was able to fix and mount to the truck.


Exactly what I need for my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee.


Hard to find parts are no problem for these guy. Need it fast? They have you covered. Thanks etrailer.


Worked perfectly on my 2015 Jeep Overland
don't need the pin part, just the other parts


Works well for my roof rack. Thanks!


Exactly as described. Shipped quickly and arrived even quicker. Cost to ratio of what getting was actually great.

Still working as good as the day I put it on

  • Will the Yakima RailGrab Adapters Work With My 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee With Flush Rails?
    If your Cherokee has the E Group package, you will see a metal strip in the flush mounted rails. If you have the E Group package, the Yakima Adapters for RailGrab Roof Rack Towers, part # Y8880201, will work with the flush factory rails on your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. However, if you do not have the E Group package, your rails are only there for aesthetic reasons and can't be used to mount a roof rack. If you are aren't sure if you have the E Group package, you can call your dealer with...

  • Replacement Yakima RailGrab Base Availability
    For replacement bases for the Railgrab you would want the part # Y8880279. This also comes with a new brass nut.

  • Yakima Roof Rack for a 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Panoramic Sunroof and Flush Side Rails
    First, regarding the Saris Cycle-On Pro, that particular bike carrier has been discontinued. The only place it is mentioned on the Saris site even is in the archives of the manuals section. There are many other similar carriers though and I have included a link to them for you. The Yakima RailGrab towers do actually fit the flush rails on your 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Since you already have RailGrab towers you will only need the pin adapter, # Y8880201. The 2015 Santa Fe requires the...

  • Will the Yakima RailGrab Roof Rack Pin Adapters # Y8880201 Fit a 2012 Audi Q7
    Yes. I checked with Yakima and the Pin Adapters, # Y8880201, will fit the 2012 Audi Q7. When used on the Audi the RailGrabs require the 48 inch crossbars. If the bars on the Odyssey are shorter then it will not work on the Audi. You would need the 48 inch bars, # Y00408.

  • What Size RailGrab Claw Does 2005 Honda Pilot Use with Raised Rails
    I wish we could say yes but I checked with Yakima and the Railgrab has been discontinued long enough that it was never test fit on the 2018 Q7. I did find out that the correct claw size for a 2005 Honda Pilot is the small part # Y80145.

  • How to Use Yakima Round Crossbars on a 2017 Lexus RX 350
    I do have an option for you but your 2017 Lexus RX 350 uses RidgeLine towers and not RailGrab towers like your 2007 Audi Q7 therefore, there will be no need for the Claws with Pin Adapters part # Y8880201. In order to use the Yakima round crossbars you had on your Q7 on your RX 350 you will need to use the RidgeClip Fit Kit part # Y06027, RidgeLine Towers part # Y00145, and the RoundBar SL Adapter part # 8880641 (4).

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2017 Kia Sorento
    I do have a solution for you, however the Yakima Claws with Pin Adapters # Y8880201 are not a confirmed fit for your 2017 Kia Sorento. As long as your Sorento has flush mounted rails that run front to back, I recommend the Yakima Roof Rack that consists of # Y00425 for the two 50 inch JetStream Crossbars, # Y00145 for the RidgeLine Towers and # Y06013 for the RidgeClip Fit Kit. This a great system that includes aerodynamic crossbars that will greatly reduce wind noise when driving with...

  • Yakima Railgrab Compatibility with 2017 BMW X1
    For your 2017 BMW X1, the RailGrab Pin Adapter # Y8880201 is not compatible. For a confirmed fit to your vehicle I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA126B-2 and the Rhino-Rack SRB Legs # RRSX026.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2016 Audi Q3
    I have confirmed with Yakima that the Claws and Pin Adapters # Y8880201 referenced in your question will fit the flush mounted factory rails on your 2016 Audi Q3 and allow for the RailGrab Roof Rack System to work on the vehicle's roof. However, Yakima has since stopped production on the RailGrab Roof Rack components. If you do not already have the RailGrab Roof Rack, then I recommend instead looking at the Rhino Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack, which consists of parts # RRVA126S-2 and # RRSX028....
