Correct Bolt and Nut for the Channels of a Yakima LockNLoad Platform Carrier


These bolts look perfect for the channels of the Yakima LockNLoad I have the K version. Any idea if they fit? Seems like nobody has T bolts/nuts specifically listed as working with the LockNLoad. Since the page asked, my vehicle is a 2021 F150 XLT SuperCrew with an A.R.E. V shell with tracks, and the Yakima roof rack is on top of the cap.

I do have an option for you, but I contacted the manufacturer about whether the Replacement T-Bolt with Nut for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailers # Y8880184 will work with a Yakima LockNLoad platform like the # Y05045-39. They informed me that the LockNLoad's use M8 bolts and the Rack and Roll uses M10 bolts.

Instead you can use the Replacement M8 T-Bolt # 853-0782 and either the Zinc Plated Hex Flange Nut - M8 # 185917 or the Replacement 3-Wing, High M8 Hand Knob # 753-0776 for a nut. Any excess length on the bolt can be cut down.
