Yakima SkyBox 12 Specs

Aerodynamic Cargo Box with Carbonite Texture

Cargo boxes, bags, and baskets are great for transporting gear on your vehicle's roof. A cargo box has the added benefits of an aerodynamic shape that reduces drag and wind noise, a hard shell to protect your gear, and a higher degree of weather resistance. And you can latch and lock a cargo box for added protection against theft.


The SkyBox 12 has 12 cu ft of space for sports equipment or camping gear for up to 2 people. The aerodynamic, low-profile design and the dimpled lid with Carbonite texture help to reduce wind noise and drag. The box opens and latches from both sides and is designed to provide clearance when you open your rear hatch. Sliding clamps accommodate most crossbar styles and spreads so you can install the box in minutes without tools. The durable yet lightweight ABS plastic construction prevents warping, denting, or cracking.


Sturdy, Dual-Side-Opening Lid

The SkyBox lid opens from both sides. Whether you mount it closer to the driver's side or passenger's side of your car, this dual-side opening lets you easily access your cargo. If you are parked on a busy street, in a tight parking lot, or even next to a campground picnic table, you have the option of opening the lid from the side of the vehicle that works best for you.


Yakima SkyBox Hinge

Patented EndoSkel stiffeners act like ribs to make this lid 3 times stiffer than other Yakima cargo box lids. The fortified lid has an easy-access edge and spring-loaded hinges that allow for smooth, one-handed operation. The extra-stiff lid also helps reduce road noise and vibration, and it guards against dents and scratches when the box is in storage.


SuperLatch Security System

Yakima SkyBox Carbonite Latch

The SkyBox has SuperLatch security latches on both sides to ensure that the lid is completely closed. The SuperLatch prevents you from removing the key from the lock unless all 3 internal latches are engaged. That way, you are prevented from removing the key and driving off with an unlocked box. This security system also seals the box against dirt and moisture. Each SuperLatch includes an SKS lock core that can be swapped out to make all your Yakima gear keyed alike.


Universal Clamp-On Mounting Hardware

Yakima SkyBox Lever

The SkyBox installs with mounting clamps that slide along tracks in the floor of the box. These clamps fit most crossbar styles, and they adjust for different crossbar spreads. To adjust a clamp, loosen both knobs and slide the clamp to the desired location. Then tighten both knobs and push the cam lever down to close the clamp around your crossbar.


Optimal Rear Hatch Clearance

Yakima Sky Box Undercut Tail

The SkyBox has an undercut tail designed to prevent interference with your vehicle's rear hatch or trunk. This tail provides more space for your hatch to fully open when compared with boxes without the undercut tail.


Cargo Tie-Down Anchors

Yakima SkyBox Track

An integrated track system in the floor of the box provides tie-down points for securing your cargo. These anchor points work great with Yakima's SkyBox cargo net (Y07146 - sold separately).

I have only used the cargo box three times since purchasing it about one year ago, but I am very happy with it. It nearly doubles our cargo space, and opens up the Subaru for the occasional guest. On our way up the coast last year, the cargo box was full, and mpg was reduced from 27 to 24 mpg. On the way home, the cargo box was nearly empty, and mpg bumped up to 26 mpg. Of course, some of the reduction from our normal 27 mpg is attributable to added weight, but we only lost 1 mpg due to the cargo box. It is very quiet at freeway speeds, and adds no noticeable roll or sway to the driving. I need to be careful when opening the car's rear hatch since the cargo box does interfere with it. Installing, locking, opening and closing the cargo box is very simple, and I love being able to access luggage from either side of the car. And it keeps the rain out! I plan to strap the cargo box onto our new Subaru Ascent next month and head cross country. Thank-you for an excellent product! 543516

Great product. Purchased this due to its slim profile and length that way we can carry all of our camping gear and whitewater boating gear. The length allows us to place the paddles in the carrier instead of in the car and needing to fold a seat down. It's width allows us to have plenty of room left on our roof rack for our boats. Love how simple and easy it is to put on and off the car when not in use. Looks great, makes little to no noise, and can hardly tell it's on the car. Love that it has built in gear tie down points inside. Highly recommend and worth the cost. Should last my lifetime and fit any future car we get due to its ability to adjust. 819370

Review from a similar SkyBox in Roof Box


Just what the doctor ordered. The unit came by UPS freight and was delivered to the curb outside my house. My friend and I unboxed and installed the unit on the roof of my SUV in about 20 minutes. The unit is a bit flimsy, but once it is mounted, it is sturdy. Driving around town, the wind noise is minimal and there is very little drag. This unit will be used to carry the larger objects that won't fit into the rear of the SUV. Overall I am pleased with the build quality and the ease of installation. 794425

Used for a cross country family road trip and it worked great. They just need a good method for storing it in between trips and perhaps rubber corners so it doesn't get scratched on the ground preparing to mount it on your car. 525494

Adds much needed space for long trips. Excellent construction. Like any other roof top carrier, the gas mileage does decrease but the trade-off is worth it. 293445

Have used the roof box for about one year on my 2014 Subaru Outback with great success. Box can be adjusted so that it doesn't hit tailgate. Once you get it adjusted, it goes on very quickly the second time. It easier to mount with two persons, but I have done it myself. Doesn't leak and I like access to either side. Pleased with the purchase. 392619

Review from a similar SkyBox in Roof Box


I would give this 5 stars, but it wound up being *just* too long for my roof rack installation. It works, and I've put it through its paces with cross country trips, camping trips, beach trips and any time I need the extra space. It is about 3 inches too long to allow the rear hatch to open completely. That was my fault, but perhaps the total cubic feet could be made up in width and not length as it had ample clearance on those side. It's a great product. I'm not complaining. I chose the size. I can't give it 5 stars because it's not "everything I wanted and more." 721231

Review from a similar SkyBox in Roof Box


This served me well on a cross country trip. I did my research on size and quality and thought this would fit my needs. Quality is good. Lock and latches work well. It seems a little flimsy when opening and closing but that is because it is so light. Once closed I didn't find any problems. I haven't used it much since the move but kept it on the SUV for several weeks after the move till I made room to store it in the garage. I would recommend it. 585410

The construction quality of this box is above all the best out there. Solid, secure, and the design means a less-than 1 mph reduction in gas mileage. We use it all the time as we travel around the country in our Subaru Outback. 397058

I bought a Yakima Skybox from etrailer.com and have been very happy with the product. Etrailer was great to work with. They are very knowledgeable about what they sell and helped me find the biggest box that would still fit my roof rack and not have any clearance issues with the lift gate of my 4Runner. There is literally 1/4" of space between the box and the (stock) spoiler of the lift gate when the lift gate is open. Fits like a glove! 582947

What a great product. It actually gets used on our 4 door pickup allowing our 5 person family to travel without using up bed space. Always dry and super easy to install with 2 people (I have installed it alone, just not as easy on a pickup truck). No noise and very secure. Very happy with this purchase. 562515

I bought this (with Rhino Rack Roof Rack Legs and Crossbars) for my 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback and it was perfect: it fit correctly snugly, it gave me all the storage space my family needed, and I felt safe with it on my car. This was my first time using and buying anything like this before and I found setup and installation easy, no special tools required. My advice is that you take your time and you'll have no problems. My only wish was that it had a combination lock instead of a key lock; I'm better at remembering a combination than not losing a key ; ) 851147

Delivery from etrailer was great, they kept me informed every step of the way. Prices were very competitive so no problem there. The Yakima SkyBox 16 was a breeze to setup - it took about 15min and I did it myself. It's a great size for my Toyota Rav4 - large enough to hold lots of camping gear but not so big that it dwarfs the car. It seems super sturdy and can open from both sides. So far a solid purchase. 844685

We ordered the 21 Cu Ft Yakima Skybox and couldn't be happier! It gives us lots of extra storage for our long trips, easily connects to our minivan, and etrailer has an excellent price! We had problems with getting it delivered without damage by the freight company, but etrailer was VERY responsive and got a new one out right away. I would highly recommend ordering from them! 824583

  • Yakima SkyBox Will Not Open From Either Side With Key Turned Counterclockwise
    I spoke with Yakima and they said that you need to push down on the box just above where the handles are on both sides. If you are able to do this then engage the locks back and forth as that should then allow you to open your box. According to Yakima, if the cargo box was left on the vehicle for an extended period of time things can get jostled around and then cause this issue so once you get the box open make sure to inspect all of the components and let us know if anything needs replaced.

    The Yakima Skybox 12 Rooftop Cargo Box, # Y07334, will work well on your 2015 Toyota 4Runner if your crossbars are not larger than 3-1/2 inches wide x 1-11/16 inches tall. Also, the crossbar spread of your factory bars must fall between 24 to 42 inches. This is measured from center to center of the your factory crossbars. With the Yakima Skybox12 cargo box, for the rear hatch to fully open, your vehicle will need at least 57 inches between the center of the front crossbar to the line...

  • Minimum Clearance Between Crossbar and Roof to allow Yakima Skybox to Fit
    The Yakima SkyBox 12 Rooftop Cargo Box - 12 cu ft - Black Carbonite # Y07334 doesn't have a specific minimum clearance below the crossbars because each fit will be slightly different. My contact at Yakima estimates that the very minimum would be 2 inches between the bottom of the bar and the top of the roof, but to be safe you will want to consider 2-1/2 inches as the minimum so you can ensure the fit.

  • Why Is Key Stuck in Yakima SkyBox 12
    Are you trying to pull the key out with the box open? It's designed not to let the key out until you close it so that you don't accidentally take off with your lid open and have everything in the box fly out on the highway.

  • Can Yakima Skybox 12 and 32 inch Wide Sail Board Fit on 60 inch Crossbars
    If you have 60 inch Thule Aeroblade bars on your 2011 BMW X5 the Yakima SkyBox 12 # Y07334 would fit with your 32 inch wide sail board. The widths of both things you plan to carry is 56 inches and since accessories can overhang slightly on crossbars you would have more than enough room with a 60 inch crossbar. Be sure to check roof capacity of the vehicle and be sure not to exceed that.
