Parts Needed to Adapt Yakima Round Bar Roof Rack to 2014 GMC Acadia with Raised Side Rails


I have a Yakima railgrab towers that I used on a different vehicle. I now have a 2014 GMC Acadia. SLT 2. What claw would I use to make it fit with the factory rails on my Acadia? We currently have a small claw. Also, we can make it fit, but the railgrab system has a curved look. Like they fit a curved rail. The Acadia has a more square look. The curved railgrab doesn’t look right on a square rail. When it’s tightened down, it pushes the railgrab “up”. And it doesn’t feel “tight”.


Expert Reply:

The Yakima round bar roof rack confirmed to fit the raised roof side rails of your 2014 GMC Acadia is made of parts # Y00408, # Y03536 and # Y00147. The Acadia requires the Timberline Towers, part # Y33TR, since there is no way to adapt the RailGrab setup to this vehicle.

Since you already have round Yakima crossbars you can simply order the other two parts above, items # Y03536 and # Y33TR, to let you continue to use those 48-inch or longer round Yakima crossbars. An install video showing an Acadia is linked for reference.
