The fit and quality are almost identical to the oem Yakima bases and the teeth grip the claws very well. Especially for the price, these bases are hard to beat.

Just what I needed and the website made it easy to confirm I was getting the right parts.



- Y8880279
by:

Claw base works well with the other two pieces - new nut was included as well

These were just what we needed to be able to keep our 10 year old Yakima kayak system on our new car. Spending money on this saved us hundreds! THANK YOU for stocking these AND getting them shipped so quickly.

I needed a set of replacement claw bases to be able to re-use a Yakima rack that I had had installed on another car. The folks at etrailer provided me with the new replacement parts that I needed, and followed up with me individually when there was a brief delay in obtaining those parts from the manufacturer.

This piece was exactly what I needed to have my Yakima RailGrab rack system in sturdy, working order. If it's not OEM equipment, you can't tell the difference. Paid much less than I expected, with fast delivery and quick followup from etrailer. Will purchase from and recommend etrailer for such parts in the future.

Yakima website is a bit confusing when it comes to parts in general and especially when it comes to parts for discontinued items. Not so with etrailer. Repair parts for my early rack towers were easy to find and quickly in my hands. Great site with great customer service.

I had some parts (this was one of them) that seized up on a discontinued railrider rack system and was in despair until I lucked upon etrailer. They had every part I needed, in stock and shipped out the same day. I had my rack fixed and on the car within three days. I am very grateful George was there. Instead of paying hundreds of dollars to replace a rack system it was a $ repair. Brilliant. I worked in the paddlesports industry for years so I could tell these were obvious OEM parts, in the correct packaging and shiny new. Effortless repair. I will always rely on etrailer.com now exclusively. Great experience.

Couldn't believe that I even found these parts! my Yakima towers are 8+ years old but etrailer had them and they were cheap! etrailer is my go-to for anything rack/hitch/trailer related.



- Y8880279

My Yakima rack had dropped this piece on a previous trip, and I waited until the last minute before the next trip to order. etrailer got the part to me in time and it fit and worked perfectly.
