Expert Answers about Yakima

  • How to Remove Locked Yakima SKS Lock Cores on Roof Rack Without the Locking Key
  • According to our friends at Yakima, the Control Key for the Yakima Same Key System, # Y07204 will only work on lock cores that are already unlocked. If you know the key number, you can order a replacement using the page I have provided a link to. If you do not know the original key number, having a locksmith pick the locks and then using the SKS control key to replace the cores will be your best option. Once the cores are removed, you can order replacements on the page I have provided...

  • How Much Weight Can I Put into a Yakima Skybox 16, part # Y07178
  • Yakima recommends a Maximum allowable weight of 125 lbs for this Yakima SkyBox 16s Cargo Box, part # Y07178, but you should always be sure to check your vehicle owners manual to determine the weight carrying capacity of your roof.

  • Can Locks be Used to Secure the Yakima Fairing to My Yakima Cross Bars
  • To secure the 44 inch Yakima fairing, item # Y07048, to your Yakima cross bars you will need a Yakima Accessory Lock Housing - Same Key System (SKS) Compatible, item # Y07220. You will also need to purchase lock cores, item # Y07202, for each accessory lock housing purchased. Two of the accessory locks and lock cores can be used on the fairing if desired. I have included a link to the installation details and a link to a video review of the fairing for you.

  • Can I Put a Thule/Yakima Fairing on My Volvo V50 Crossbars
  • There is a way to get a fairing on your Volvo V50, but the Thule Roof Rack Fairing, part TH871XT, is designed to fit either Thule Square Load Bars or Thule Aero Load Bars. Likewise, the Yakima Fairings will only fit Yakima load bars. Typically, the front cross bar on a factory system is far back enough that a fairing is not needed. Often times the Thule or Yakima roof racks will put the front bar close enough to the windshield that a fairing is needed or recommended. Depending on...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab for Kayaks, Ladders, and Lumber
  • You can add a roof rack to your 2011 Toyota Tacoma, but if you have a naked roof (no side rails that run front to back) you will not be able to use a kayak carrier because the space between the bars will be too short. If you do have side rails that run front to back then I have a solution for you. You can install Thule Crossroads feet, # TH450 and load bars, # THLB58. Then you can use The Stacker, # TH830 to carry the kayaks. If you do not have the side rails you can add a roof rack...

  • Can Yakima Crossbars be Trimmed in the Yakima RailGrab and CrossBar Roof-Rack Kit # Y00140
  • You could trim the bars evenly and as straight as possible on both sides in the Yakima RailGrab and CrossBar Roof-Rack Kit, # Y00140. The RailGrabs and bars are the same parts that are available individually. A kit that comes with the 48 inch long bars is not available. I have included a link to a video that will help with installation. When you cut the bars, they need to be as even and straight as possible. An angled cut can cause the end caps not to fit correctly and you could end...

  • Locks Not Working On Yakima PowderHound
  • You will want to make sure you are using the control key to install the cores to the PowderHound. The control key is the key that is blank and has no number on it. This key will allow you to install the core, but you will need to use the other two numbered keys to operate the locks. The number on the keys should read something similar to A137. If you look at the picture of the keys on Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores, part # Y07202, it will show the two regular, numbered keys....

  • Adding a Roof Mount Bike Rack to a 2008 Coleman Bayside Popup Camper
  • To install a roof top bike rack like the Yakima Yakima Raptor Aero Roof Mounted Bike Carrier - Frame Mount, # Y02093, you would first have to install cross bars on your pop up camper. First, make sure that your camper is rated for this type of application. You will need to install tracks on the roof first. We have 42 inch (# Y01126), 54 inch (# Y01127), and 60 inch (# Y01135) depending on the length of your camper. You could then install Yakima Control Towers - Roof Rack Feet (QTY 4),...

  • Is a Roof Rack Available to Carry a Kayak on a 2012 Mini Cooper.
  • The roof rack that you will want to use on your new 2012 Mini Cooper is the Thule Short Roof Traverse Roof Rack, # THLB50, # TH480, # THKIT1366 and # TH487. Kayak carriers sometimes require a minimum crossbar spread of 24 inches and this roof rack will give you a crossbar spread of 27-1/2 inches. I have attached a video of this roof rack being installed on a Mini Cooper for you to check out. If you have a 2012 Mini Countryman, then you will need a different Thule roof rack which...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier For One Person To Load Kayak From Rear of 1999 Lexus LX470
  • For the 1999 Lexus LX470, there are are couple of different roof options. I have included a link to the roof rack options for the vehicle. Select the type of roof you have to see the available options. For a roof mounted kayak carrier, I would recommend Thule Slipstream XT Roof Mounted Kayak Carrier System with Roller, part # TH887XT. The Thule Slipstream XT will allows you to slide your kayak onto the roof rack from the rear of the vehicle. Part # TH887XT, comes with needed hardware...

  • Will Yakima Track Rack Roof System Fit a Starcraft 14 Popup Camper
  • The Yakima tracks, # Y01126, will fit your camper roof if it is longer than 42 inches. The tracks that mount to the roof are 42 inches long and you would probably want a few inches of space at the end of each side in case any adjustments forward or backwards need to be made when installing the tracks. You will also need Yakima Control Towers, # Y00214, and crossbars, # Y00409. If your camper has a roof mounted air conditioner or other similar accessory, it might get in the way of cargo...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2010 Infiniti G37 Convertible
  • I have a solution for you, but I checked with our bike rack manufacturers and none of them have any trunk mounted bike rack options for your 2010 Infiniti G37 convertible. The best option for you would be to put a hitch on the back of your vehicle and then use a hitch mounted bike rack. For a hitch I would recommend a Curt Trailer Hitch # C11068. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also. For a bike rack I would recommend a Thule Vertex 2 Bike...

  • Recommendation of Roof Rack System For 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Mega Cab
  • To get a Yakima roof rack on your 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Mega Cab you will need the Yakima Q Towers Roof Rack Feet, part # Y00124, and the Yakima Q118 Q Clips, part # Y00718, with the Yakima 58 Inch Round Cross Bars, part # Y00409. This roof rack system will fit your vehicle that does not have rain gutters. The Q clips will attach to the vehicles door frame.

  • Kuat Sherpa Bike Rack Recommendation for a Carbon Fiber Frame Bike
  • The best way to transport a carbon fiber bike is to use a rack that does not secure to the frame in any way. Usually the best way is to use a rack like a Kuat Aluminum Sherpa # S101 that attaches to the wheels and will not secure to the frame of the bike in any way. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also. For a carbon fiber bike I would not recommend a SportRack Super EZ Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # A30901LR or a Yakima StickUp 2 Bike Hitch...

  • Carrying a 1960s Beach Cruiser Bike in the Back of a Truck
  • This item is made for bikes with the quick release on the front wheel. On your 1960's Beach Cruiser the front wheel is most likely mounted with nuts on the ends of the axle, and it would require tools to remove and replace the tire each time you wanted to mount the bike in the truck or remove the bike and reinstall the front wheel/tire. A better option for you may be the # UG2500 Topline truck bed mounted bike carrier which does not require removal of the front tire. If that doesn't...

  • Will the Yakima KingJoe Trunk Mount Bike Racks Fit a 2009 Honda Civic 4-Door Sedan
  • Yes, the Yakima KingJoe 2, # Y02619, and 3 bike model # Y02620, both fit the 2009 Honda Civic 4-Door sedan. The KingJoe Pro2, # Y02624, and 3 bike model, # Y02625, also fit. I have included a picture showing the KingJoe on a Civic. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes I recommend using the Tube Top adapter bar, # Y02531, for greater ground clearance and to carry the bikes more level. I have included a link to a video showing how the adapter works.

  • Which Roof Location Offers the Least Wind Resistance When Installing Yakima Roof Cargo Box # Y07175
  • For the least amount of wind resistance I would recommend to install a roof cargo box towards the rear of the vehicle. The only problem with moving the cargo box towards the rear on a minivan is you will want to make sure that the cargo box will not get in the way of the rear hatch when it is opened. So you will need to attach the cargo box to your crossbars and adjust the location on your roof by moving the cargo box forwards or backwards to the best location on your vehicle, before tightening...

  • Will The Yakima KingJoe 2 Bike Trunk Mounted Rack # Y02619 Fit On A 2010 Nissan Rogue
  • On the 2010 Nissan Rogue you can use the Yakima KingJoe 2 Bike Trunk Mounted Rack, part # Y02619, and the Yakima QuickBack 2 Bike Trunk Mounted Rack, part # Y02621. The Yakima trunk mounted bike racks do come with glass hatch hooks, but looking at the fitment for your vehicle it says that they are not required. It says the upper straps should attach to the top edge of the hatch lid or rear door and the lower straps to the bottom edge of the hatch lid or rear door. It also says the side...

  • The Yakima SuperJoe Pro 2 Trunk Bike Rack, # Y02629, will fit a wide range of vehicles. There are some vehicles that the bike rack will not fit because of clearance issues and some vehicles because of weight capacity issues. If you will let me know what vehicle or vehicles you are wanting to install it on I will be able to let you know if it will fit. The Yakima bike rack can be removed as needed and reinstalled later. It uses a six strap system of attaching to the vehicle. You would...

  • What Trunk Bike Rack Is Available To Fit A 2010 Toyota Corolla With A Factory Spoiler
  • The Yakima SuperJoe Pro 2 Trunk Bike Rack, part # Y02629, is listed as fitting the 2010 Toyota Corolla 4-door WITHOUT a factory spoiler. Yakima does not test fit their trunk racks on vehicles with factory spoilers. So they can not say that it will work safely on your vehicle. See the picture to the right of a Yakima trunk rack on a Toyota Corolla. Looking at the way it is attached, I do not think it will install on a Corolla with a factory spoiler. Most trunk bike rack manufacturers...

Once installed you could mount a bike rack to the roof of your 2010 Volkswagen Passat Wagon. I attached a link to an installation video below for you to check out on these products being installed on a similar vehicle as yours. If your bike manufacturer recommends that you only use a fork mounted bike rack I would advise you to stick with that recommendation. I...

I like to take a 2x4, or other long straight item and place it against both sides of the spare tire. With the 2x4 held in place measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest side of the 2x4. As long as the bike racks measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the bike rack is longer than the measurement you get on...

  • Recommendation for 2 Kayak Roof Mounted Carrier for a 2011 Toyota 4Runner
  • According to Yakima, if your 2011 Toyota 4Runner came with factory installed crossbars that run side to side, you can use the Yakima BigStack Roof Mounted 2 Kayak Carrier System, # Y04041. This carrier is a direct fit to the factory crossbars on your vehicle. I have incldued a link to the installation details for you to view. If your 4Runner just has side rails that run front to back but no crossbars, you will first need to install crossbars using RailGrabs, # Y00138, and CrossBars,...

  • Roof Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara with Factory Roof Rack
  • Based on the picture you sent of the roof rack on your 2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara it looks like you have bars that are very similar to Thule Rapid Aero or AeroBlade bars or Whispbars. We do have several roof mount bike racks that will fit these bars. For roof mounted bike racks, there are basically 2 styles: those that require removing the front wheel and those that do not. Out of all the options (which I have linked individually below) I recommend the Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 if you...

  • Will Yakima Roof Cargo Carrier, # Y07080, Fit On 1972 VW Squareback
  • First thing is to find out the roof capacity of your 1972 VW Squareback to make sure it will be able to handle a roof rack with a load. The roof cargo carriers we carry are made to attach to a crossbar on the roof. We have the Darby Turbo-Rack Universal Single-Bar Roof Rack, # DTA968, which attaches to the vehicle by a strap that runs from drivers side to passenger side along the roof on the inside of the vehicle. You would need two of them. The only problem with that application is...

  • Do the Yakima and Thule Roof Mount Cargo Boxes Come with Stickers Already Applied to the Box
  • Depending on the box model there could be stickers or hard plastic badges. In both cases, they are already attached to the box. To remove the stickers, you would need to use a hair drier and apply low heat to the sticker to loosen the adhesive while slowly peeling the sticker away. You would not want to remove the badges because it could damage the box and/or leave holes. There can also be a sticker on some of the boxes that shows features and gives instructions but it is easily peeled...

  • Roof Mounted Canoe Carrier Recommendation for a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe with Factory Roof Rack
  • We do offer some roof mounted canoe carrier options for your 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe, but they will not increase the carrying capacity of the factory rack on your vehicle. For example, you could use the Yakima Universal Foam Block Rooftop canoe carrier, part # Y04055, but the capacity on the carrier would be the same as the capacity on your factory bars. The foam block style carrier would work with your existing factory cross bars. The same rule would apply if you removed the factory cross...

  • Will a Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit on a 2002 Mercedes SL500 Roadster and Other Bike Rack Options
  • You will be able to carry two bikes on your 2002 Mercedes SL500 Roadster, but not using a trunk mount rack. There are not enough safe attachment points to secure a trunk mount bike rack. The best option is to install a trailer hitch, # C11742, and a hitch mount bike rack. I have included a link to the installation details for this hitch below. With this hitch installed, you could then add a 2 bike rack like the Highland SportWing 2 Bike Rack, # 5801200. I have included a link to the...
