Review of the Yakima CoreBar Steel Crossbars


Today we'll be taking a look at the Yakima CoreBar Crossbars in black. They are available in a 50" length, part number Y00421. A 60" length, part number Y00422. And a 70" length, part number Y0423 and 80", part number Y00424. These aero style steel cross bars allow you to mount your clamp on accessories to your vehicles roof. The aerodynamic teardrop shape helps to reduce wind noise and vibration. The crossbars work with many universal mount carriers, such as bike, water, snow or cargo. Our CoreBar crossbars come with the hardware to fit BaseLine, RidgeLine, Skyline and TiberLine foot packs. The bars are made from a solid steel construction with a vinyl coating to resist rust and corrosion. Our kit comes in a quantity of two and has a 220lb weight capacity.

You do want to check your vehicles owners manual to make sure that your vehicle can withstand that much weight. These crossbars come with a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we've gone over some features we're going to show you how to get this installed. We've pulled the foot pack that goes with our vehicle so we're just going to show you how to put everything together. We're working with the TimberLine towers today, keep in mind these steps may vary depending on your tower type. We're going to take our adapters and insert those in place. We'll take our plastic one here, and we'll push it down until it snaps. We'll take our loop, we're going to set it in place, flip it over and we'll tighten it down.

We're going to use our torque tool and there is a bolt down in there. We're just going to tighten this down just enough so that it doesn't fall off. We'll take each of our foot packs and we'll put them on the ends. I've gone ahead and pre-measured the distance that I need from the end of the foot pack to the end of our crossbar. Now what we'll do is we'll push our strap through here, we'll make sure we can see our bolt down in that hole, we'll take our tool and just tighten that down. What this is going to do it tighten our loop down here around our crossbar and secure it in place, make sure it doesn't move. We can do the same to the other foot pack. We can load our crossbars up on our vehicle. It may be a good idea to get an extra set of hands have somebody grab it from the other side. Now that we've got our crossbar in our desired location we're going to take a measurement just to make sure that it's even on both sides.

Perfect now we can tighten them down. We'll take our strap and set it into place here, then we can tighten down our bolt. As you tighten it down keep in mind that you want to make sure that you tighten down each side evenly. We have ours just up against our rail, we'll do the same to the other side. We'll tighten down back and forth until we have it completely secure. Now we can load up our gear and hit the road. That will complete our look at the Yakima CoreBar Crossbars.
