Video Transcript for Yakima Rooftop Carriers Aero Mount Bales Replacement Review

Hi everyone. It's Evangeline. And today we'll be taking a look at our replacement aero mount bales for your Yakima rooftop carriers, right here at etrailer. So these are gonna work with specific rooftop carriers from Yakima. For example, I have the Yakima FreshTrack. Behind me, I have the Yakima ReelDeal.

Check out the product page for the specific list of actual products this can work with. But, this is gonna allow you to mount your carriers, different shapes crossbars, like your aero crossbars. So whether you damaged, broke or lost your bottom bale, this is gonna be the exact replacement part. This fits right into your different tracks in your top clamp. If that one is the one that is broken, we have those replacement parts right here at etrailer as well.

So to replace them, if you have a slightly damaged one, you just pop it off. If you've lost it, then go ahead and get your replacement bale, pop that right into the track. Make sure that you hear a click and that it's fully seated. Once that's in place, you can now fit your entire carrier around your crossbar. Bring that back up.

You can now utilize the T-Bolt on your top clamp and then fit it into place. And just like that, we can now clamp our carrier around our larger aero crossbars. Now, this was a look at the bottom clamp or the replacement bales for your Yakima rooftop carriers. What if you have other parts that are missing or damaged, we do have those replacement parts. This, up here, is gonna be the replacement top clamp.

You also have the entire replacement mounting hardware, which includes the mounting pad as well as our T-Bolt and our wing nut. Then, oh this at the end is gonna be the tamper proof screw. And then you also have the mounting hardware for the inside. Hopefully, this helped you out with figuring out what you need to replace on your own rooftop carriers, so that you can hit the road again. And that was a look here, at our replacement mounting bales for Yakima rooftop carriers, like the Yakima FreshTrack or the Yakima ReelDeal, as well as other carriers right here at etrailer..

I’m happy with the part. It’s an exact replacement. I’m also very happy that I was able to find a replacement part.


Worked well.


You are the only online source for this part. Yakima does not have them in stock, so I am grateful that you have such a complete line of products.


I couldn't find the part I needed for my Yakima kayak carrier anywhere else. You saved the day! I chose the lowest shipping cost option and the parts arrived four days after placing the order. Well done!

Thanks for reaching out. Im still completely satisfied.

They called me and let me know that the parts would have to be back ordered for months and offered to fully refund. I opted to wait as the parts were not critical. They even checked back later to verify the parts were still wanted and i was still willing to wait.


These brackets worked great! I got a Yakima Fresh Tracks 4 ski and snowboard rack at an REi garage sale and it was missing this part. This order fulfilled my needs perfectly. I’d recommend the description be updated to also note these work with the FreshTracks rack.


Perfect replacement part.


Quite honestly, I was amazed by the fast and efficient service that etrailer provided when I ordered a replacement part for my bike carrier. I received notice within an hour of placing the order that the part was being sent, and I received the part in 72 hours. FAST, friendly, efficient. Thank You


Excellent replacement......worked perfect and now able to use the roof rack to carry kayaks and canoe.Thanks


The delivery delay was excessive I don't know if it was due to covid caused supply issues or not.


The product is top notch OEM and shipping was fast. etrailer’s customer service is some of the best around.


Fit perfectly and couldn’t ask for more!


Incredible service. Very quick: I put in my order and it was shipped later that day (within 2 or 3 hours of receiving my order!). My gear arrived quickly and I received a follow-up email announcing delivery before I had even had time to check my mailbox. All in all wonderful, friendly, fast service. Thank you!


Needed part to replace one I lost for my kayak carrier. I was pleased with the easy ordering and I received it quickly!


Original part was backorder until December. Etrailer helped me find this replacement piece that was the same and saved me the time of having to wait. Great help from the entire team!


Exact part replacement.
Has been on
top of the truck for a year holding up as expected.


Product was exactly what I needed for replacement. Quick and easy transaction, fast shipping, got it in 2 days. Thanks so much! Highly recommended!


The Yakima bails I ordered arrived very quickly. The bails are OEM.


The parts fit perfectly!! Thanks so much for having them available. Will definitely do business with your company again.
