Replaces the lid support for your Yakima cargo box.


I purchased a set of these to try and resolve. The issues I had with my Yakima skybox lid opening along the front edge at highway speeds. Unable to obtain the original hardware from Yakima. I purchased these replacement parts in hopes that it would solve the problem. Due to supply chain issues it took nearly a year and a half or more to receive them and in the end they made no bit of difference on the plus side the folks at etrailer did communicate with me frequently throughout the long delay and overall I’m satisfied with their customer service. These particular parts, however, are unlikely to solve any problems unless you’re. Yakima box lid supports are completely broken.

I hate to hear that this lid support did not work out. I sm curious as to why Yakima did not have it for you. Was it a supply issue or an obsolete issue? Do you happen to know which model Skybox you have?



@JennyN hi. i think it was actually a rocket box pro 12. yakima said original part’s discontinued.

@Ken Well, I am afraid I do not have good news for you. The part that you are looking for is part 8870095, however we no longer have any stock available. I took a quick search online and I was not able to find a source for it. I wish had a better solution for you.


The lid supports to hold up the lid on my cargo box needed to be replaced. The sales rep was very helpful in identifying the items I needed that would fit my Yakima cargo box. They were shipped in a timely manner, easy to install, and work perfectly.


What can I say, etrailer always has the best advice, they never let you down and they only sell you what you really need. I’ve found their customer service better than any other company..ANY other company! The cargo support was exactly what I needed and it works better than the original design.


The replacement lid support for my Yakima Ski Box was OEM, perfect!


Easy replacement hinge for the wonky one on my Skybox (16S). Looks nothing like the original, but works fine so far


This assembly actually works better than the original lid hinge. Super easy to install.


Worked as expected. Easy to install


This replaced the original front support in my Yakima SkyBox 16 Carbonite, which had deformed due to summer heat. Installation difficulty was perhaps a 2 out of 10; the old support came out with the removal of 2 screws, and I used the same screws to install this replacement. The only difficulty was working while my head, arms and shoulders were inside the open Skybox.



The replacement support continues to do its job without calling attention to itself. So glad I the part is made available to easily and economically maintain the SkyBox.


All parts matched with my older Yakima Skybox 16! I will be able to get many more happy years of use out of this box now.


Perfect fit.


Perfect replacement for the original supports. Only complaints are 1) for the front support, it’s a pain to get to the bottom screw. But it’s like 1 minute of pain. And 2) it takes forever to get these because EVERYONE who owns a Yakima box with the old supports needs these. Come on Yakima, make them a warranty recall!

That said, these are perfect replacements. The wait time is due to production, not etrailer. Customer support at etrailer was amazing. Thanks guys!


Great price on Yakima parts!


Product arrived a few days after the order. Great service.


Awesome. Way better than the original Yakima parts!


Works like a champ. Quick shipping


Always works as expected. It’s great that you have the option to order cores that match your existing sets.


This was the perfect replacement lid support for my 2003-2009 Yakima rocketbox. The lid support works so well that I wish I had just ordered two! Thanks so much Erik.



Amazingly! Replacing the sks for my Yakima box has been a game changer for my outdoor recreation all year long. Was so easy to replace the key sets I couldn’t believe it. Wouldn’t have gone any other way about it one year later.


Much more solid than the original supports I had. Difficult to install using the mallet method, since the cargo box absorbs most of the energy of the mallet hit. I suggest you use a 3/8 drill bit to manually scrape off a bit of plastic from the holes if you have any trouble installing these.


This replacement lid support for my Yakima Skybox works great! Much better than the original "accordian" style support, in fact. It was pretty easy to remove the old, busted supports and install these new ones. Now the box pops right open, from either side, and stays wide open. Easy fix that has given my Skybox new life!


Very simple to replace and works well when installed. Only drawback was that they took nearly a year to come in because of supply chain issues. Kudos to etrailer for keeping me apprised of the order status over the course of the almost year I had to wait for them.


Quick delivery; easy installation on my Skybox 2016


Exactly what I needed for my early model SkyBox 21. OEM part. Delivered quickly.


I did receive my order recently, however it took many many months " supply chain issues"you know.
etrailer did keep me informed and promptly answered all my inquiries.
I do realize that these things are out of their control ,they did their best under unusual circumstances.
I also enjoy teasing them when the said it would be sent in October, I replied which year?


etrailer was very transparent that delivery would be delayed, and they came through in the end.


They upgraded my shipping at no cost so I got the parts quicker ( lid supports for Yakima skybox 16 ). Parts came with everything I needed including instructions, installed easily and work great.



After a year the new lid supporthinges are working out just fine. The box gets used a lot and there are no issues opening or closing.
