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


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 the Yakima LocknLoad 55x49 Platform.. would have been nicer if it was just a few inches longer. Fits really well on the 2019 Grand Cherokee.. and looks even better but at highway speeds (60mph+) you will hear it up there... I've also noticed .5 mpg less which is no biggie...I didn't think the Landing Pads (18) were very stable but once in place.. its rock solid!

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.

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Roof Basket

  • Is It Possible To Install Cargo Box On Top Of Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack?
    I confirmed with Yakima that the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars - Aluminum - 60" Long x 54" Wide # Y05045-39 you were looking at has 3.15 wide crossbars. You may be able to clamp some accessories around the crossbars, but the T-slot channel will be the easiest way to mount things. Installing a roof basket onto the platform rack would be pointless in a way since they are similar items, but if you were referring to a cargo box then that would work well. For a cargo box,...

  • What Size Yakima LockNLoad Platform Can I Put On My Trucks Camper Shell?
    You can use the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack On your A.R.E. HD MX Series Truck Cap. The mounting hardware wraps around your crossbars to secure it into place. If you have 2 crossbars on the roof, the largest platform you can put up there is 60" by 54" # Y05045-39. If you have 3 crossbars on top, you can use this larger platform # Y05048-39 which is 84" by 54". If you only have two, I think it would be best to get another crossbar and get the longer platform. Make your truck do more!

  • How Much Height Does Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars # Y05045-39 Add
    The Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars # Y05045-39 would add right at 4 inches to the height of your vehicle.

  • Can Yakima LockNLoad Hold a 35 inch Spare Tire Plus Awnings
    If your spare tire has a 35" diameter then yes, the 60" Long x 54" Wide Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack # Y05045-39 will have enough surface area for your tire. You can use the Spare Tire Carrier Kit # Y05032 to accomplish this. I looked up your OVS 180 Degree Nomadic Awning and it looks like they have a mounting bracket designed for Yakima roof racks. If you use that bracket you should be able to mount an awning in any of the T-Slots on this rack. The LockNLoad doesn't have a specified...

  • Will Yakima 60x54 Lock/Load Platform Fit 60 inch Crossbar Spread
    According to Yakima the 60" Long x 54" Wide Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars # Y05045-39 will be too short when it comes to mounting for crossbars that are 60" apart and you need to go with the larger 84" Long x 49" Wide version which is part # Y05047-39. The thing about this though is that the larger platform rack requires 3 crossbars to be safely used so you will need to add another crossbar to your A.R.E. HD CX Series Bed Cap. We have the Thule TracRac CapRac # TH29200XT...

  • 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...

    Yes, the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack for Tonneau Cover # Y01151-5855 can have a Yakima LockNLoad Platform attached to it. This ladder rack has an on-road weight capacity of 500lbs so depending on the size of the Yakima LockNLoad Platform you choose you would just subtract its weight from the 500lbs to determine the remaining weight capacity available.

  • Do You Carry Mounts to Attach a Roof Top Basket to My Yakima Round Bars on My 1999 Jeep Cherokee?
    I have an answer for you. Unfortunately, we do not carry any mounting brackets that are confirmed to work with your EAG rack or your Smittybilt Defender rack because we do not sell those brands. We do carry brackets like the Universal MightyMounts for Yakima Roof Mounted Accessories # Y03590 but they are not confirmed to fit other brands of racks. However, for a great alternative that will definitely fit your Yakima RoundBars - 58" # Y00409 on your 1999 Jeep Cherokee, I recommend the...
