Video Transcript for Yakima TopGrip Paddle Shovel or Axe Holder Roof Rack Crossbar Brackets Review

Jake: Hey guys. Jake here with etrailer. Today we're going to be taking a look at, and I'm going to show you how to use the Yakima TopGrip.What's Nice about the TopGrip is it's going to hold the handle of your paddle, your shovel, or your ax. Pretty much anything that has a cylindrical handle on it, it's going to fit inside to be able to clamp down and hold it into place.The reason I wanted to show the TopGrip in the configuration we have it now is because there's not going to be a lot of solutions to be able to haul your paddles for your kayak or canoe in a controlled manner. Not a lot of vehicles are big enough on the inside to be able to stick this big long paddle inside without getting in your way. So by putting it on your roof rack, you're going to be able to put your paddles ...

If you're carrying two kayaks, you can put two of these kits on the inside of your kayak. And before you put your kayaks on, you'll load your paddles up, and you'll know that they're safe when headed down the road.The way this paddle carrier is going to work, is it's going to mount to your roof bar. And then when you get your paddle in place like we have here, you'll see you have a nice rubber pad, so you're not going to smash or damage your paddle by sticking it in here. And then we'll take our top arm and simply push down to clamp it in place. And then to release it, all you have to do is pull in on these two tabs and then lift it up.One thing I like about this holder is that Yakima made this to not only fit paddles, but they made it to fit a lot of other things that have different diameter handles on them.

Here you'll see it in a first click position. That's not going to come open. And it has a very large opening there. So you can see you're going to be able to fit a much larger handle in there. And if you're using it for a paddle, you're going to have several clicks before it will lock fully into place.

So you know that you're not going to have to worry about your paddle going anywhere because it's safely secure.Something that Yakima added to add an extra safety feature to the TopGrip is that you can replace these plastic lock cores with locking lock cores that will be keyed alike to both of your TopGrip brackets. This is going to keep your TopGrip locked to your roof rack, and your paddle safely secured in your TopGrip.Now that we've gone over some of those features, let's go ahead and show you how easy it is to get in place. To get our TopGrip in place, we need to first start by removing our end cap of our roof bar. Set that to the side. And here you'll see that we are going to insert our TopGrip in our T-Track.

So we're going to need to lift out this rubber piece.Now today we're just going to be lifting it out and keeping it out to the side. If you we're leaving these in permanently, or you're going to be using them frequently, you can take piece and cut it to length so that your TopGrip is sitting in here somewhere. And then your rubber strip is filled back in on the end.Now we're going to take a lock washer and a flat washer with our shorter bolt. You'll have two sets of bolts. Insert it in there until you see it come out the bottom. And then take a flat plate that you'll also have included in your kit and thread it onto the bottom. Thread it just a few times to get it started. Now what we can do is take it and slide it in through our T-Track. Slide it into place.This is where you're going to want to decide where you want it placed on your crossbar. We're going to have ours towards the outer edge because we're not going to have but one kayak on our roof. And then we'll take our included Allen wrench and tighten down that bolt. That tighten down. We can take our end cap and replace it.What's nice about this kit is they give you options. They give you the option of using the T-Track like we did. I just like the cleaner look of using a T-Track accessory. It gets it incorporated with the bar, and you don't have to worry about anything interfering.You will also have in your kit, an adapter for arrow bars and for round bars. Now for these specific arrow bars that we have, they're a little bit thicker, so this arrow bar adapter did not work for us. But if it does for you, it does provide still a pretty clean look. I just liked the looks of it in the T-Track better.To get your paddle in place, put it inside the rack and close down the latches. With that being said, that's going to do it for our look and installation of the Yakima TopGrip.

I bought this product with thoughts of It would be great to use as a mount for my weedeater so it would not roll around in the back of my truck bed. It will work but does not plant down as tight as I’d hoped. However it does work well For shovels and yard tools. 812191

  • Best Lift Assist Carrier for Stand-Up Paddle Board
    We do have a great option for you, though the Thule Hullavator Pro # TH898 would not work with a paddle board because it would not be tall enough. The J-style of the Hullavator's cradles has tie-downs on top and a SUP does not have the height for it to be secured. Instead, the best lift assist for your SUP is the Yakima ShowDown Kayak or SUP Carrier and Lift Assist w/ Tie-Downs # Y04081 because it actually comes with saddles for your paddle board, as you can see by the cut out of the...

  • Is the Yakima MegaWarrior Okay for Use Off-Road
    The mounting clamps included with the Yakima MegaWarrior Large Roof Rack Cargo Basket part # Y07080 are composed of both metal and plastic. However, I can't say I have ever heard of them breaking before within reason. The MegaWarrior is also more geared towards the off-road community so I don't think you will have any issues at all.
