Today we are going to show you the safety poll and clip for the Yakima Rack and Roll trailer, part number Y08114. One of the accessories that Yakima offers for their Rack and Roll trailers is the safety poll and clip. The safety poll is a 40 inch tall, yellow fiberglass rod that is designed to attach to the trailer so that you can see where the trailer is when you are backing up your vehicle. The safety poll is especially handy with larger vehicles, like full-size trucks and SUVs. Yakima also offers a lifetime warranty on the safety poll. 0:31
There are two methods for installing the safety poll on a Yakima Rack and Roll trailer. The first is to use the track on the left hand or right hand side of the trailer frame. Take the bolt with the square head and it into the track. Then, slide it into position where you want the safety poll. Take the safety poll and set the mounting loop over the bolt. Use the included washer and nylon lock nut to secure the poll to the trailer. The second method for installation is using the cross bar of the trailer. Yakima includes a cross bar clip and a second set of hardware for installing the safety poll on the cross bar. Slip the clip over the cross bar. Drop the bolt through the safety poll and the clip and tighten down with the included wing nut. 1:33
And now that we have the safety poll installed, we will show you what it looks like in use. The trailer is not always visible behind a full-size SUV. But, here you can clearly see the safety poll in the review mirror and through the rear window. And that is it for part number Y08114, the safety poll for the Yakima Rack and Roll trailer.
