Replaces a damaged or lost BaseLine tower for your Yakima roof rack. BaseLine towers let you mount crossbars to your vehicle with a naked roof. Includes 1 BaseLine tower.


This review is for all 4 items I ordered. All are Yakima products, the towers, the adapters, the bar, and the base clip kits. Everything came at the same time, it was fairly easy to put together (instructions would have been nice to have) it took a little bit to figure it out. I haven't carried anything on it yet, but it fits good on the pickup.


Fast order processing and delivery, great communication. I’m repeating this review to update to a photo of an improved install prior to the haul. As my 10-year-old, the smart one said “We won’t exactly be opening the sunroof anyways!” Uh, yeah, duh.


Allison was very helpful. I will be buying more from her in the future


fit on my 2020 ford ranger was perfect. seems very solid and secure.



From start to finish, the folks at etrailer -- and I spoke to several people there, so it was a consistent corporate vibe -- were fantastic to deal with.

There were delays in getting my product that were on the supplier side and out of etrailer's control, yet etrailer folks kept me up to date and also worked on a customized solution.

My goal was to be able to carry my surfboard on the roof of our 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe to the beach more than 3 hours away. But the particular model we had had no existing racks, no recessed areas, nothing to fix racks to. Not even the dealer had a solution. I was sh*t out of luck.

But etrailer hooked me up. The racks did take me a while to put on, but most of that time was fine tuning to reduce “hum” while driving. I’m very happy with them.

Thanks to etrailer, I have gone surfing and can go surfing whenever I'd like to.


I really like the look. These are quieter than the square bars with a fairing in my other pickup. I like the way the brackets fit the molding and don’t interfere with the rubber seal. I was able to put the bars anywhere I wanted, and I did not follow the recommended front to back placement so it would better fit my cartop carrier box and work for a canoe with my goalpost in the hitch receiver.


I waited several weeks for roof rack to arrive after ordering online. I am accustomed to Thule racks, but could not find any towers/bases to fit the 2019 Santa Fe. Once here, the Yakima rack mounted with ease and I look forward to hauling kayaks or basket on the roof.
Thank you etrailer.


Awesome rack system!!! Glass top Edge went from KC to Crystal River FL. With two bote boards loaded on. #1 be sure to check the torque on the clamps randomly per the instructions.
They didn't loosen much but one did a bit.


The rack looks solid. It’s the perfect fit for my 2020 Ford Ranger. I’m so glad I waited for a back ordered item because the 50 inch bars are a much better fit than the 53” bars on the Thule kit. My only complaint is that the fit guide was not accurate on the Yakima website. The suggested placement of the baseline towers was at least 3/4 inch off on the front bar and 1/2 inch off on the rear bar. Not a big deal unless you’re upset with the cut rubber insert that is placed inside the bar rail before you place the bars on the vehicle for attachment. That’s if you follow each step in the directions. If I were to do it again, I would have place led the bars on the vehicle before cutting the rubber stripping. The bars sit quite high off the roof. Not terribly high, but higher than the Rhino Vortex 2500 I had on my Ford Focus ST. Quality of bar seems good, but quality on cap on baseline towers seemed a bit cheap and figment wasn’t crisp. I found myself wondering if I should have purchased a lock set with the order just to be certain the caps on the baseline towers doesn’t fall off. I don’t think any of these kits are worth the $500 price tag. They’re worth no more than $200. Can’t believe these companies expect consumers to purchase $500 bars every time they upgrade their vehicle, especially all the leasees out there. If I had to buy again I would look for the Rhino Rack. Quality is just as good if not better, and the price is a bit cheaper. They just don’t have a setup for my 2020 Ranger.


I though I would love the core bar set up on my truck but I have really grown to love them! Weather it’s bikes, kayaks or a ladder it works great! And even better it looks great! Quieter than Thule square bars and Yakima round bars by far. I would not only buy again but one of the bars was damaged in shipment and etrailer took care of it by sending a new one to replace it right away. Will be buying from them again! Good customer service!!!!


Customer service was excellent, they called me to tell me one item was backordered and how long it would be. Package was shipped with enough packing material. Install was pretty easy, some of the Yakima measurements in the manual are a couple inches off but no big deal. This will be used to carry a box for when the family takes trips. Can pile all the luggage up top and have more room in the car. I would recommend the Yakima corebar roof rack and etrailer! Their price was lower than 2 other sites I checked.


Ordered new towers so as to use my old-school round bars (I bought these at least 18 years ago, maybe even earlier) and bike and canoe accessories on a new vehicle (naked roof 2018 CR-V). Installation was tedious, as usual, but not difficult and the written instructions were straightforward. Youtube helpful too but not necessary. Have hauled bikes and the canoe in high wind on the interstate (no more than 65 mph though) on the CR-V and so far so good. Have had excellent results with Yakima racks on 3 vehicles now (2 sedans and now the CR-V) over last 28 yrs. This is my first purchase through etrailer. Very pleased. Good price, excellent service online and via phone, rapid delivery. Highly recommend.


How do you go wrong with Yakima? The system works great on the roof of my 2015 Chevy 'High Country' Crew cab. I am using it to support a cage style system that holds my 'handyman jack' as well as a spare 20" wheel & tire system.


Bought as a pkg for my 2017 Golf R with Round Bars since I had a bunch of Yakima bike racks and a canoe gunwale rack for my old Yakima set up. Installation was easy with good instructions. All measurements from the Yakima site appear to be spot on. shipped these out quickly and all parts arrived without damage.


I ordered the wrong set up for my car, but the excellent customer service specialist set me up and expedited my roof rack that fit perfectly. I highly recommend calling and speaking with the knowledgeable staff about your needs. I'm super happy with the experience overall!


The rack has been so useful since I purchased it. Staff at were exceptionally helpful in getting the best option for my car and answering questions. I recommend this company, for its 110% customer service, excellent prices and timely delivery.


I am thrilled this got delivered sooner than anticipated! It was quite easy to install once you started actually putting it together and measuring everything out. I like that this can easily be removed and installed onto the vehicle.


etrailer had what I needed for my Yakima baseline rack when everyone else was sold out and on backorder for MONTHS. They followed up with an email when it was shipped out as well as when it was delivered. I will definitely buy from them again.


Baseline towers are designed really well and the adjustability to fit almost any naked roof is really impressive. I would have given them five starts but the hand-held hex torque driver seemed to fit some of the adjustment hardware better than others even in the same base tower. It started to slip inside one of the hex bolts, so I tightened really slowly and gradually and that made the torque clicking not work. Ultimately, I over-tightened one of the towers and it started to flex the door jam sightly. If it’s available, I recommend using your own torque wrench with the correct allen bit/extension.


The Yakima products are doing great. Just got home yesterday from a 18 day trip using them in Michigan's upper peninsula. Love them. Great products. Thanks again.


Roof rack fits and works as advertised. Over the phone customer support for sales and install directions were very helpful and thorough. Geoff is an excellent brand ambassador who goes above and beyond to fulfill customer expectations. I will definitely be shopping at etrailer for my future vehicle needs. Well done!


Excellent engineering to ensure the baseline towers match the size and angles of your roof line. High quality!


The installation was super easy, and despite a long time stuck in shipping the delivery itself was extremely fast, and the package arrived in spotless condition. The manuals were very easy to follow, and the end result is absolutely amazing.


Roof rack on my 2020 Sentra was perfect and the detailed instructions helped out a lot!

  • Parts Needed To Add One Roof Rack Crossbar To 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    I have another option for you, but the parts of the Thule WingBar Evo Roof Rack system you were looking at are only available in pairs so you not be able to purchase just one crossbar, two feet, and fit kits for just the two feet.

  • Can Two Thule Hullavator Kayak Carriers Be Used On A Thule TracRac SR Ladder Rack
    Yes, you can use two of the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Roof Rack and Lift Assist # TH898 on the Thule TracRac SR. It has plenty of capacity and space for both to fit, you'll just need to place the towers so that the crossbars are spaced 24" apart. For your 2022 Ford F-250 with a 6-3/4' bed you'll need part # TH43003XT-785 for the TracRac. The Thule Hullavator requires that the roof of the vehicle can hold at least 130lbs, but you'll be splitting this with the ladder rack. I'd just check...

    A first step in finding a roof rack and appropriate watercraft carriers for your 2012 Honda Ridgeline Sport is a check of your owners manual (or inquiry to your local dealership) to confirm how much weight the roof can safely handle.

  • Recommendations for Transporting 2 Kayaks with Yakima LongArm Bed Extender on 2015 Ford F-150
    While we do have an option for you, we do not carry any saddle-style, flat style, or j-style carriers that are confirmed to fit the Yakima LongArm Bed Extender. This is because the 2" diameter of the LongArm is too thick for those carriers. However, with that being said, if you are looking for more support than simply using the LongArm Pad # Y07417, I recommend using the Malone # MPG152. This kit comes with 2 18" foam blocks that have a contoured angle for your kayaks. The kit also comes...

The OverHaul HD is always my favorite recommendation since it's a super solid ladder rack that looks and works perfectly on the Tacoma. The version that mounts to the utility tracks # Y01151-5868 has a maximum crossbar spread of 40". You can see that measurement around the 3:20 minute mark in the video I attached below.
