How to Fit the Whispbar WB-400 Kayak Carrier on a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon


I like the WB400 whispbar kayak rack but I dont have the slotted cross bar on my outback. Is there an adapter to give you this T slot?

We do have some solutions for you to use a J-Style carrier on your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon, but if your current crossbars don't have a T-Slot then the (discontinued) Whispbar WB-400 J-Style kayak carrier isn't compatible with your current roof rack system.

To use this system with your Outback Wagon you need to upgrade your OEM crossbars to Yakima JetStream or HD crossbars which do use the T-Slots. For a complete roof rack system you need the SkyLine Towers # Y00148 and the Landing Pad 15 # Y00241 then the # Y00425 JetStream crossbars OR the HD Bars # Y01156 with the Adapter # Y03541. To add locks to the roof rack you need the 4 lock core kit # Y07204.
