Hi there. I'm Michael with Today we're gonna take a quick look at this Yakima replacement mounting bracket. This is gonna replace one lost or damaged universal mounting bracket for your Yakima Powderhound and Big Powderhound. This will also work with the Freshsesh and Freshsesh with Locks, as well as the Buttondown Aero models that you see on the screen there.

Parts ordered did not fit Yakima aero bars. Customer service expected me to pay for return shipping for their listing mistake. It took 45 minutes and two emails just to get service rep to agree to partial return shipping coverage. Seriously reconsidering any future purchases with etrailer if this is how they treat their customers post sale. Very disappointed.

Thank you for letting us know. Our customer service team should be reaching out to you in the near future.


Part will work with my ski rack. I need to enlarge the mounting hole slightly to line up with the hole in my rack but it will work.



The Yakima mounting brackets that I purchased worked well. I had to make minor modifications to get them to fit the rack properly but that was expected when I made the purchase.


Mount doesn't work with Yakima Jetstream bars, unless you purchase longer bolts! I guess this mount is designed for existing bars on some list of car manufacturers, which is kind of unclear.

The side holes on top of the mount seem to be present to work with the older style thumb wingnuts but there's no way you can tighten them due to the cover plate.

Once I bought some longer bolts and worked out a system to attach my rack to this clip, it performs well enough. Typical Yakima, high quality.

Yakima really needs more choices for T-slot adapters. I spent extra for the Jetstream bars, and I'm stuck with mediocre solutions like these mounts or the mighty mounts.

Etrailer, you guys are always good to work with. Thanks.


Worked as descibed !


The product is great - just what I expected. Fast shipping and a great price.

What truly sets apart from the rest is top notch customer service, the likes of which i have never experienced with any company. When my local bozo mail clown proved to be too dim, lazy or both to deliver to my workplace, etrailer customer service took up my cause and proactively worked with me to get the package located and shipped back to so that they could ship to my home address (at no additional charge!). These folks (George, Nikki and Vince) were unbelievably helpful and they continued to follow up with me until the issue was resolved and I received my package.

I have honestly NEVER experienced customer service as outstanding as this. Hell, I thought this kind of service was dead! As a result, I will recommend to anyone and everyone who needs products that are distributed through their site. Seriously, etrailer, you guys have scored a life-long customer in me.



Factory crossbars on new 4Runner were wider than former car and needed new mounts for a serviceable Yakima ski rack. A local rack dealer only carried the universal mighty mount but that mount was not lockable. Called Yakima and they suggested this one which works well. It took a bit of figuring with no instructions.

Just fine


I am pleased to find the parts to use to make an older ski rack fit my new car rack. The product arrived quickly and they do work as planned. Unfortunately the racks make more wind noise than I would like. But, I’m able to not buy an entirely new set up.


Fast and efficient service. Thank you.


Double check that this fits your rack model if you are replacing all four mounts.
You can look up the installation instructions for Powderhound on Yamika's website.
It would be nice if etrailer could attach the instructions.

My rack was an older model which did not have the hole for the top screw. So I had to countersink the plastic for the top bolt head in order to use the cross hole for mounting the rack.

I like this design more than the Mighty Mounts because it seems more secure.


Had to buy new hardware to make this product work. Anti-theft portion of ski rack has been voided because of needing new hardware to attach rack to roof.

great all the way around.


Exactly what I ordered, when it was supposed to arrive. Thx

by: was the only online shop that carried this small but quite hard to replace part for my ski rack. I'm both impressed and grateful!



Its been a year, indeed, and so far the part I purchased is working just fine.


Because I have two vehicle with different rack cross bars these were great. The only drawback is they cannot be locked on the vehicle.

Thanks for your review. I am glad you brought this up. Although the replacement hardware cannot be locked, the Yakima SKS locks are available on the carriers themselves. I hope this helps!


This adapter works perfectly with my new Honda CRV roof rack and will enable me to use my existing Yakima ski rack on the new car. I really like the photo display. It helped me make sure this was what I wanted as an earlier purchase from EBay resulted in having to return a product that would not fit the cross bars on my roof rack. Easy to install - great product.


My teenage boys lost one of the mounting clamps for our Yakima Powerhound roof ski rack! Got online and quickly ordered a replacement one, came in the mail with plenty of time for them not to lose any time on the slopes. Very happy with Etrailer!


I was able to use an older Yakima Buttondown ski rack to attach to the factory cross bars of a 2014 Subaru Outback. Using the Y8860040 makes the mounting theft proof versus the Y03590 Mighty Mounts. But this makes it so it takes a bit of time to install the racks each time since you have to screw in all the hardware. It seems the mounting bolts seem a little too short to have it clamp around the Suburu cross bars. I will probably will purchase longer stainless steel mounting bolts to use to make it easier to install next time. No instruction sheet was available. The product shipped within 1 week.


I bought this Replacement Mounting Hardware for my Yakima PowderHound. I previously had Mighty Mounts which come as a set. I thought this product would come as a set as well. I asked to return the product, but have been told that the shipping would be more than my refund. Disappointed.


Could not find Yakima mount for older button down ski rack to fit an after market oval bar anywhere local from Yakima dealers? They said it could be ordered but would most likely take 7-10 days. Not at etrailer, Incredibly quick service. Order placed on busiest shipping week, Sunday before Christmas, and was delivered by Thursday. Great follow up and attention to the customer. Excellent job. I just hope I need to order something else! Thanks


Rhese are slick. Just what I needed to fit my 05 Subaru Baja and my -6 Subaru Outback. These work slick and are secure.

Tall S.


Still happy !


This mount worked great to attach our older Yakima ski rack to our 2008 Toyota Sequoia. Seems like they will do the job and at a lower cost than the other universal mighty mounts from Yak.


I've now purchased multiple replacement parts for car racks from In every case, they had a better selection, better pricing (by far), and better service than any other local or online option I could find. This company is a gem!


Exactly what I was looking for. Very quick shipping, trouble free dealing. Highly recommended. Also, thank you etrailer for carrying replacement parts which are hard to find anywhere else!


Had great selection of replacement parts for our Yakima rack. Delivery was fast and the price was fair.


I'm glad I could even find spare parts for my car rack. Product ordering was seamless with no issues. Product delivery was on time with any hiccups. I had prior experience with other products and they were all satisfactory with no issues. Overall I'm very happy with the quality of service. Thumbs up!!


They had the exact replacement part I needed. It came well packaged and had tracking. Part itself was just as described and brand new. It was easy transaction and professionally done. I will definitely use these guys again if needed.
