These are some fine towers. I had one issue (my own fault) where I ran my 10' long 4" diameter water storage pipe into the wall while backing up, and the towers popped out of the track... which is exactly what I would have expected as that saved the tracks from getting ripped off the top of my camper shell. I'm glad I got these, and I will be shopping etrailer.com in the future.

Purchased four of these to replace some Qtowers. So far my only regret is I did not attach to the camper shell from the beginning. Had some slippage issues with Qclips I was using on the access cab of a ‘15 Tacoma. Disappointing experience after using Qclips on numerous vehicles over the years. Hoping these control towers stand the test of time. Purchased Landing Pads #6 for attaching to shell.

The ordering and purchase process was super simple and the delivery was made on time. The tower installed easily and fits perfectly.

Needs instructions for moving the lock to the new tower. The item was exactly as described and what I needed, a replacement for ome that got broken, and it was a perfect fit. Once I figured out how to take the lock out of the old one and put it in the new one (thanks youtube!) it was an easy installation. I would recommend including a simple sheet of paper on how to move the locks: 1. unlock the old control tower. 2. insert the control key (looks like an uncut blank) that came with the original rack set/equipment and with a little jiggle the lock core will pop out. 3. insert the lock core into the new tower and then remove the control key.

I have been using Yakima products for years. Great quality. Wanted to build a specialty rack without dismantling my other racks.
