Video Transcript for Yakima FatCat Ski and Snowboard Carrier Mounting Hardware Review

Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Replacement Mounting Feet for your Yakima FatCat 4, or your Yakima FatCat Evo 6. So if you're like me and you misplace things quite often, or they just break on you unexpectedly. Well, etrailer's got a bunch of different replacement parts. So the one we're looking at today is just the whole entire foot assembly. So this isn't gonna be for the round bars or anything like that. It's just gonna be the exact piece that comes with your Yakima FatCat.

And this is just gonna be for all your bars, basically. So what we're going to get with this is, of course the foot, but also this little knob as well. So you don't have to grab those separately, which is kinda nice. So you know how it works and you've had it before. Basically it comes with both of those pieces, comes with the little adjustment knob.

Again, it's the exact same thing that came in the box to start. At the end of the day, there's not really a whole lot to really say about this, just wanna letting you guys know that if you need a replacement, we have it. And this is gonna work just like the other one that came with the kit. So that being said, if you do have other replacement parts or other parts that you need replaced, we have some as well, just go to the related part section of the webpage, and that will list out all the replacement parts that we have available for this thing. So, you lose even more stuff, like I usually do, we have it for you here at etrailer.

And that'll basically do it for a look at the Replacement Mounting Foot Kit for your Yakima FatCat Evo..

Exactly what I needed to be able to use my older Yakima FatCat 6 snowboard attachments that only had the round bar mounts! Easy plug and play installation!




by:

Really works well, better than expected. Super simple install, and fit factory Honda aero crossbars perfectly. Mounts the FatCat Ski Carrier securely and lower to the roof for less wind noise and easier loading/unloading.




by:

I've use this product for 1 season and so far is held very well giving me peace of mind that my gear is secure as I travel to the mountains to go skiing and snowboarding!




by:

Perfect replacement part. Note that the prior one broke through user error - drove into garage with rack on top of SUV - not due to a Yakima quality issue. The part took a few weeks to arrive due to backorder, but etrailer proactively notified me of the status several times & even offered to ship a compatible (but not exact match) part so I didn't have to wait; I decided to hold off to get exact match. Great customer service!!!




by:

Perfect fit & function!




by:

I have Yakima round cross bars/roof racks on my Subaru. I bought these so I can take my Yakima fatcat snowboard racks and put them on my Jeep that have the Thule AeroBlade Load Bars. The Yakima fatcats fit perfect. Cheap fix in order to move snowboard racks from one roof rack system to the other. Easy to install.




by:

I was able to replace the feet on my 2012 Yakima fatcat6. The old style with the bolted clamps. These worked out great! Once you adjust the length of the straps (first time only), taking them on and off is a breeze. No more struggling to with tools. Everything snaps into place very quickly. Highly recommend.




by:

Perfect! I have an older Fat Cat 6 model bought off of an auction site and it had some rusted bolts on the old mounts. This replacement fit beautifully and it was like getting a brand new rack. Quick delivery to boot!

  • Will Yakima FatCat Ski Carrier Mounts Fit Factory Crossbars that are Aero Shaped
    The Replacement Mounting Hardware for Yakima FatCat Ski and Snowboard Carrier # Y8860078 that you referenced is designed to easily fit on aero shaped roof rack crossbars. That said, I can't guarantee they would also fit the ski rack you have as well since I am not sure what rack model you have. This replacement was intended for the FatCat carriers like part # Y03087.

  • Mounting Hardware for Older Yakima Fat Cat on 2002 Acura MDX Roof Rails
    If your 2002 Acura MDX has factory roof rails, the Replacement Mounting Hardware for Yakima FatCat # Y8860078 has been confirmed by Yakima to fit. This hardware was designed for the newer Fat Cat ski carriers, but will work with the 2010 version of the FatCat 6.

  • Will the Yakima FatCat Mounting Hardware Fit on a 2019 Acura RDX with Factory Crossbars
    You will have no problem using the Replacement FatCat Mounting Hardware, # Y8860078, with your FatCat and the crossbars on your 2019 Acura RDX. Yakima doesn't officially test this hardware on every OEM crossbar, but they designed this hardware to fit almost every factory crossbar on the market. The only fit issues that we have seen were with Nissan and Jeep's oversized roof rails that are significantly larger than the crossbars on your RDX.

  • Could Strap of Replacement Mounting Hardware part # Y8860078 be Easily Cut
    The strap portion of the Replacement Mounting Hardware part # Y8860078 is made of a rubber coated steel and would not be easy for a thief to cut.

  • Does Fatcat Replacement Hardware Y8860078 Require Additional Hardware
    If your Yakima Fatcat is fully functional as-is and has all of the old mounting components and you wanted to replace what you have with the part # Y8860078 there would be no additional mounting hardware needed.

  • Replacement Mounting Feet for a Yakima Fatcat 6 Ski Carrier on a 2013 Honda CR-V
    For your Yakima FatCat ski carrier, Y03088, you will need to use replacement foot # Y8860078. It just includes one. You would need a total of 4 of these, 2 for each of the halves of the FatCat carrier. I also checked with Yakima and this carrier and the new feet are a fit for your 2013 Honda CR-V with OEM crossbars.

  • How to Use Older Yakima FatCat 6 on 2020 BMW X3 M40i With Factory Roof Rack
    We do have an option for you, although the Replacement Mounting Hardware for Yakima FatCat Ski and Snowboard Carrier # Y8860078 will not work with the 4" wide factory crossbars on your 2020 BMW X3 M40i. The reason for that is these are simply replacement brackets that only work with crossbars up to 3-7/16" wide, like the original brackets. What you will need to do instead is use the Universal MightyMounts for Yakima Roof Mounted Accessories # Y03590, which will work with your older Yakima...

  • Adapter to Fit Yakima PowderHound Ski Rack To Factory Cross Bars On 2012 Ford Expedition
    To get your PowderHound mounted to your 2012 Ford Expedition with factory cross bars you can use Universal MightyMounts for Yakima Roof Mounted Accessories # Y03590. The mount is specifically designed for situations just like yours, it allows you to adapt most Yakima carriers to almost any factory roof rack cross bars. One thing you will want to check is that the factory crossbars must not be more than 4" wide or 1-1/2" tall for these mounts to work. I linked the mounts and instructions...

  • How Do the Yakima FatCat and FatCat EVO Ski and Snowboard Carriers Lock
    The Replacement Mounting Hardware # Y8860078 does, in a roundabout way, lock to the roof rack on your vehicle. Both the discontinued Yakima FatCat ski and snowboards carriers, as well as the Yakima FatCat EVO 6 Ski and Snowboard Carrier # Y03096, utilize the locks on the outside push-buttons to lock the whole system. The mounting hardware can only be removed from the inside of the carrier itself so as long as you lock the cores on the push-button the carrier will be locked to the crossbar....

  • Replacement Mounting Hardware for Yakima ButtonDown 6 Ski Carrier
    The correct replacement mounting hardware for your Yakima ButtonDown 6 Ski Carrier is the part # 8830021. This is a direct replacement and will allow your carrier to fit round or square crossbars. If you want to be able to use the carrier on wider aero-style bars you would just need to add the Universal MightyMounts # Y03590. I verified with my contact at Yakima that these adapters are compatible with your ButtonDown and will allow you to secure it crossbars that are up to 4 inches wide....

  • Adapter Recommendation that Can Fit Yakima FatCat 6 to Audi Q8 Crossbars
    The universal MightyMount part # Y03590 is a fit for the older style of Yakima FatCat 6 that you have and can fit crossbar sizes up to 4 inches wide and 1-1/2 inches tall so it should work well for you. I don't have the year of Q8 that you have though so I wasn't able to fully confirm this though. Send me the year of your vehicle and I'll be able to get a full confirmation.
