Mounting Hardware Needed to Mount Older Yakima Accessories to Aero-Style Crossbars

Question:

I have Brightline BL571160 crossbars which are approximately 3/4 X 2.5 inch aero shaped. I’d like to purchase separate older style horizontal and vertical Yakima adapters to mate these bars with a number of older Yakima accessories that I have used for years. What Yakima model mounting adapters might work?

Expert Reply:

If you have a variety of older Yakima products that you want to mount to crossbars that are 2-1/2" wide x 3/4" tall then the Universal MightyMounts # Y03590 would be your best bet. These adapters fit a wide variety of Yakima products but they are somewhat specific. If you can let me know what products you are wanting to mount them on I can see about verifying if these will fit or what other parts you may need.

Don’t know the names but here are pics of two accessories. One is for boat mounting on round bars and the other is for bikes.

Thank you for the pictures!

I reached out to my contact at Yakima who said that the boat carrier in your picture is an older model that doesn't have an adapter to mount it on aero-style bars but they did come out with an upgraded version that is compatible with aero bars. The is the Yakima KeelOver # Y04069.

For the bike rack you can use the Universal MightyMounts # Y03590 that I initially referenced.
