Review from a similar LockNLoad in Roof Basket


Mounted to the top of my 2018 F-150 Super Crew Cab. Had Yakima Baselines, with HD Bars, HD Bar Adapters and the locknload crossbar adapters. Wished I was able to install it without crossbars as it requires that I buy them, also adds a bit of height to the the locknload as well. Very well built, had my wife (125lbs) walking around on it after I mounted the locknload. Took about an hour to assemble the locknload and maybe another hour or two of adjusting the bars to where I wanted the locknload to sit on the roof. Other than it looks a bit too high I do love them. Will probably see what I can do about lowering the locknload in the future.

Review from a similar LockNLoad in Roof Basket


Love it! Used it on our Subaru Outback when we wanted a firmer and wider platform than the stock crossbars. The platform is even more useful than I thought because you can mount accessories (e.g., canoe carriers) all the way to the edge if you use the T-channel to secure them. I would've probably gotten one size smaller had I realized that.

Review from a similar LockNLoad in Roof Basket


I am going to include the Landing Pads, Skyline Towers, LockNLoad adapters, and Pivoting Mounts that are all required for my vehicle in this review of the 84" x 54" LockNLoad Platform. First, I had done months of research trying to figure out what would work and meet my needs for a 2008 GMC Yukon XL. Without the help of etrailer's agent, Ashley, I'd probably still be trying to figure things out! Ashley was patient and thorough, she made sure I had all the parts I needed for a fairly complex (and large!)project. I cannot thank her enough! On to the assembly and installation: Ashley confirmed that following instructions was key to efficient building - I found that combining online instructions with the included hard copies worked best. As an example, the online fastener images and descriptions are far better than the paper ones. Then, having the paper instructions in hand made "in the moment" progress much faster. All of the Yakima parts fit together perfectly, and by methodically following the instructions (I cannot stress this enough!), including pre assembling Landing Pads, Towers, and Pivoting Mounts, there was no need to backtrack. Once I had a day to devote to the project, everything went very smoothly. Placing the large Platform on the mounts does require two people, but the rest was easy for one fairly handy person to accomplish. Making adjustments to be sure the Platform is centered and square to the roof took some time but it's worth it in the end. Again, thanks to etrailer and particularly Ashley! It was a pleasure doing business with you!

This thing added a great deal of flexibility to my 4Runner. Rock solid and almost limitless options for roof storage allowed me to customize it to transport a kayak and roof box that would never have been possible otherwise.

  • Roof Tray, Spare Wheel, Shovel, and Jack Carrier for Thule Rack on Leer Camper
    The Yakima LocknLoad platform part # Y05044-39 would be a really great option that you could use with the other carriers you mentioned as well. The Hi-Lift Jack Carrier part # Y05033 and Spare Tire Carrier part # Y05032, and Top Grip for Shovel part # Y04086. The Thule bars you mentioned have a 165 lb capacity so as long as you stay under that you'll be fine.

  • Options For Putting A Yakima Lock N Load Platform On My 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk
    The lowest profile option for your 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk would be to get the Landing Pad 18 # Y00244 for the Skyline Towers # Y00148 and use the SL adapters # Y05042 for this size Lock N Load Platform (55x49) # Y05044-39. This should get you about 5 inches of clearance from your panoramic roof to the bottom of the platform. This is what I recommend and will be great for hauling your lumber and gear. Just make sure you do not exceed your jeep's roof weight capacity. If for...

  • Platform Rack For A 2021 Kia Telluride
    We don't have a platform that is confirmed to fit your 2021 Kia Telluride since it's so new, but that doesn't mean that it will not fit. It just hasn't been confirmed yet. That being said we do not have a rhino rack option for you but this Yakima roof rack will work. You need the Ridgeline Towers # Y00145, corebar # Y00421 and this fit kit # Y94FR. Then, you can use the Yakima LockNLoad Platform # Y05044-39 which will just wrap around your crossbars to install. I think the 55"x49" will...

  • Rhino-Rack or Yakima Platform Rack for Carrying Bikes on an SUV
    If you're planning on loading bikes on a platform then the Yakima LockNLoad would be better than the Rhino-Rack Pioneer simply because the LockNLoad is a bit more user friendly when it comes to installing different types of carriers. The 2 most common sizes for the LockNLoad are the 55" Long x 49" Wide # Y05044-39 and the 60" Long x 54" Wide # Y05045-39. All of the larger style require a 3-crossbar mounting system. If you can let me know what SUV you will be using for this I can make...

  • Correct Size Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for 2020 Subaru Outback
    The correct Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for a 2020 Subaru Outback is part # Y05044-39 which measures 55" Long x 49" Wide. The Yakima LockNLoad is a super versatile option that will allow you to mount pretty much anything you need up on the roof such as the Jerry Can Holder part # Y05038, Hi-Lift Jack Carrier part # Y05033, or Spare Tire Carrier part # Y05032 for example. I have attached a full list of options below. The Yakima LockNLoad attaches to the factory crossbars so it will...

  • Which Wind Fairing Should I Use For The Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack Which Measures 49" Wide?
    It looks like you are referring to the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars - Aluminum - 55" Long x 49" Wide # Y05044-39. This, along with any other roof rack, will certainly add some wind noise to the roof so I understand your concern. I recommend adding Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 46" Long # Y05018. This will not completely get rid of wind noise and drag, but it will help to reduce the unwanted wind noise. It simply attaches to your platform rack or other crossbars;...

  • Will Cargo Box Work With Yakima LockNLoad On 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser
    The Yakima LockNLoad Platform Racks like part # Y05044-39 won't work with roof boxes so if you have a 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser the Rhino-Rack Pioneer SX Platform Rack part # JA9134 would be a better option. Furthermore, the LockNLoad requires horizontal crossbars whereas this Pioneer attaches directly to the raised side rails.

  • What Awning Can Mount to the Yakima LockNLoad Platform

This awning is a great choice that mounts to the passenger side of your vehicle and provides 69 sq/ft of coverage. There is also the Rhino-Rack Batwing Awning - Roof Rack Mount - Bolt On - Passenger's Side - 118 Sq Ft # RR33200, which is a bit bigger, but also mounts in the...

  • Is It Possible to Install a LockNLoad to My 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe's Flush Factory Rails?
    I have an answer for you. I went ahead and reached out to my contact at Yakima, and she confirmed that they do not currently have a fitting/adapters for a direct mounting option of the Yakima LockNLoad to your factory flush rails on your 2021 Chevy Tahoe. There is always the option of a custom installation of the platform, but that process will involve drilling straight into the roof of your vehicle. Another thing that I confirmed is that even without the crossbars installed, there is only...

  • Does Weight of Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack Count Against Roof Weight
    If your vehicle has a 100 lb roof weight capacity the weight of the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars # Y05044-39 would count against that. So you'd have a total of 57 lbs of cargo weight you could carry.

  • Will the Bolts on Front Runner Accessories Fit the T-Slots of the Yakima LockNLoad's Channels?
    I have an answer for you. I reached out to my contact at Yakima and they said that they specially make t-slot hardware for accessories that are designed to fit into LockNLoad Platforms like the # Y05044-39. With that being said, there is no way to confirm whether your Front Runner accessories' M8 hex bolts will work with the LockNLoad channels. This is also the case with all other t-slotted platforms we carry. However, Yakima does make many compatible accessories that are designed to...

  • What Parts Are Needed To Mount The Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack Onto A 2020 Ford Explorer?
    The Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars 55" Long x 49" Wide # Y05044-39 does require crossbars for installation as it cannot mount to factory roof rails. The most affordable Yakima crossbar setup is Yakima CoreBar Crossbars Black - 60" # Y00422 with TimberLine Towers # Y00147. These crossbars do not have a top channel so you won't be able to install channel-mounted accessories, but the platform rack clamps onto the crossbars so it will work fine. I do, however, recommend spending...

  • How Far Apart are Slats of Yakima LockNLoad Platform Racks

The Yakima Spare Tire Carrier for Yakima Roof Cargo Baskets # Y07076 is designed to work with Yakima baskets but it should also work with your Thule Roof Basket. You may need to drill new holes to make the spacing work between bars. Another option that doesn't require drilling is the Yakima Spare Tire Carrier # Y05032. This is intended to use...

  • Parts Needed to Install Yakima LockNLoad on 2018 Subaru Outback Limited for Rhino Rack Batwing
    The easiest solution would be to order the part # Y05044-39 as this is a kit that includes both the # Y05044 and the # Y05039. The Rhino Rack Batwing part # RR33400 would easily fit to this as well since it can attach to the channels that are present on top of the LockNLoad.

  • Does Recovery Track Mount for Yakima OverHaul HD Fit on Yakima LockNLoad Platform

  • Can The Rotopax Mounting Kit # Y01167 Work With The Yakima LockNLoad?
    Yes, the Rotopax Mounting Kit # Y01167 will work but the backing plate may be a little too long for the top slot on the Yakima LockNLoad # Y05044-39. We can compensate for this though. We can either put the backing plate in the desired part of the Yakima LockNLoad before you assemble the tray, or you can just cut the backing plate in half so it can slide in the top slot on the tray. One of those two options will work! Be sure to tighten the cap of the gas cap since it will be on your...

It's a platform rack that is compatible with factory crossbars. It measures 55" long x 49" wide x 4" tall and weighs 43.5 pounds. It has T-slots for your kayak carriers.

You won't be able to mount the LockNLoad directly to the roof though.

  • Will Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Roof Tray Fit Thule TracRac TracVan Van Ladder Rack
    I do have an option but none of the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Roof Trays will be a good fit for the Thule TracRac TracVan Van Ladder Rack due to the thickness of the crossbars. However, we do have the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack part # Y05044-39 which since it fits thicker crossbars should work just fine. Please note, very few of the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Roof Trays actually attach to standard crossbars.
