RidgeLine Towers

The heavy-duty RidgeLine towers allow you to mount 2 Yakima crossbars (sold separately) to your vehicle with flush, factory side rails. The towers adjust during installation to ensure your crossbars are level and that the rack is seated correctly on your roof. The RidgeLine's versatile BarBed accommodates Yakima's full line of crossbars. The towers install with Yakima's DropHook system and RidgeClips (sold separately).

Versatile BarBed

Versatile RidgeLine BarBed

The RidgeLine's BarBed is specifically designed to work with Yakima's entire line of crossbars.

CoreBar CrossbarJetStream Crossbar

The BarBed is curved to accommodate the elliptical shape of the CoreBar and JetStream crossbar. The CoreBar includes brackets that slide over the bar and secure to the towers with bolts. The JetStream attaches directly to the tower with bolts.

RoundBar CrossbarRoundBar Adapter

The towers also work with Yakima RoundBars with adapters (Y03536 - sold separately). The adapters slide over the bars and secure to the towers with bolts.

Torque Tool

The crossbars mount to the RidgeLine towers with the included torque tool. The tool clicks 3 times once you've reached the correct amount of torque so you don't have to worry about over- or under-tightening. This is the only tool you will need to secure the bars to the towers and the towers to your roof.

Secure Installation with DropHook System

RidgeLine Tower RidgeClips

The towers install with custom-fit RidgeClips (sold separately). Simply remove the covers and attach the RidgeClips to the hooks inside the tower assemblies. Then place the towers on your flush rails and tighten the clips with the included torque tool. The clips tighten at the same time on the inside and outside of your rails to ensure an even, secure grip.

RidgeLine Pitch Diagram

Each tower's pitch can be adjusted up to 6 degrees forward or backward during installation. This lets you create a level mounting surface for your gear even on a curved roof. To adjust the pitch, simply loosen the bolt near the top of the tower assembly, adjust the position of the bar, and then re-tighten the bolt.

RidgeLine Toe Angle Diagram

The toe angle of each tower adjusts automatically - up to 10 degrees side to side depending on the shape of your rails - during installation. This ensures that the rack is seated correctly and securely on your flush rails.

Same Key System Locks

4 Pack SKS Lock Cores

RidgeLine towers are compatible with Yakima SKS lock cores (Y07204 - sold separately) that allow you to secure the roof rack to your roof. The SKS locks are all keyed alike so a single key opens all the locks. The locks can also be swapped out to make all of your Yakima products keyed alike.

Of all of the many racks I’ve purchased over the years, this, by far, is the worst. Once installed, it is okay, but installing these towers is extremely frustrating. The front and back “clips” fall out requiring multiple attempts. When I contacted Yakima customer support, they acknowledged that they have received complaints about the product. Their solution was to just leave the racks on the car. I asked to be notified when a better product was available but a year later I’ve received no response. If this is the only option available for your vehicle (as it was for mine), then prepare to be frustrated. Otherwise, purchase a different product.


Because of the 'rona-induced supply chain interruptions, I was unable to purchase all of my Yakima components from etrailer, but I did get these, and they are typically excellent Yakima components. Well-made, easy to install, good directions, no problems.

Still doing great and looking good a year in.
Phillip R - 09/30/2022


With exception of getting wrong towers (crossbar vs streamline), installation was fairly painless. Pay attention to measurements during install! Looking forward to the Yakima 16 to be fitted shortly and then ROAD-TRIPPING.


It's a great roof rack, but the paint is getting all scratched off...probably from sliding kayaks up onto it. I hope it doesn't rust. So far no signs of that.


Received this Yakima roof rack system for my flush-rail 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature on Thursday, and installed it on Friday.
It’s not the simplest installation I’ve encountered, and I’d had a number of Thule products before. I found the installation “picto-grams” not that helpful. Also the 3.5 newton-meter torque screwdriver provide would not “click”.
It looks great on the Mazda, but took about 4 hours to install - getting the clips in place was an issue ; I got the outer to clip on, only to find the inner had come off its attachment clips- very frustrating.


1 year later and still love my Yakima JetStream system. I've mostly used them to transport my kayak however I've also been able to transport some big box store items as well. They are very versatile. There is a t-track option as well as wrap around attachments. I've use ladder attachments, eyebolts, and Thule Hullavator in t-track. I've used Malone MegaWing and Yakima Skybox as wrap around attachment. What I really like about the t-track system is that you do not need to cut out the rubber track insert. You simply slide over the rubber, which allows you to adjust your system, on the fly, to load what you need to carry.


I bought both the roof rack and the cage from etrailer! Put everything on myself...easy peasy!


I chose the Yakima roof rack, because It spanned 50 inches, rather than the leading competitor's 47 inches, making it better for tying down 4 ft x 8 ft sheets of building material. It also seemed to be about half the price. It took me about 2 hours to put it all together and mount it on my car. The instructions were all visual and there was one little pic I didn't understand, but the equipment seemed to go together correctly anyway. Now that it's adjusted, it should be fairly easy to remove and replace next time. I did need to put on super tacky gloves to get the covers off. Although it seemed unnecessarily complicated, I would still choose this product again.

Its easier keep it on the car. Works great.

2018 Mazda CX-9

I loved how easy these towers were to install. Took less than 30 mins total. They look nice and feel very sturdy. I am looking forward to loading the Kayaks up and getting out on the water next weekend.


Prompt delivery. Delivered exactly what was ordered. No hassle.


Work just like their supposed to. Look great and function well.

2018 Honda Ridgeline

I needed crossbars for my new 2018 Mazda CX5, which came with flush side rails. The RidgeLine Towers for the Yakima crossbars, along with the vehicle specific kit worked great. The installation (10-15 min) is super easy. They look cool, and performed great (I strapped 160-lbs rooftop tent on them!). Removing them is also super easy (10 min tops). Highly recommend.


The Yakima roof rack system for my 2019 CX9 with flush mounted rails worked out great, and etrailer customer service was excellent. My first choice was to purchase the Thule system but after digging deeper, I realized that the Yakima was much easier to install. Changing my mind to Yakima was very easy even though the Thule system was almost ready to ship. One suggestion that I think will help with the installation. Add some blue masking tape to the backside of the inner ridge fit clip to temporarily hold it in place. Once secured, the tape can be removed.


I bought these Yakima racks for my 2020 Palisade and the deciding factor for me was the installation video provided by etrailer. It proved as helpful as I’d hoped and now I’m trying to decide which accessories to add. Thank you etrailer!


Great customer service (thanks Rodney), in-stock Yakima components, competitive prices and fast shipping. What more do you need? I will be returning when the need arises. Thanks!

2015 Mini Cooper

Parts fit perfectly. I was able to pull the cross bars and rack from my 2016 Smart car and install them on my 2015 Mini Cooper with ZERO issues. E Trailer had everything I needed and easy to figure out. Happy as can be!


The racks fit well and secure on 2021 Palisade. A little cumbersome to assemble but a little patients goes a long way. Also 4 pieces were robbed from one box.
The people at etrailer made it right by sending the lost part ASAP.
Thank you


Great items, Good service, Good communication, Thanks


Everything arrived in a timely fashion and the instructions were simple to follow. The fit is good and look forward to many years of use. Kayaks are awaiting for racks to arrive. Thanks for a great product

2017 Kia Sedona

This Yakima rack system for my 2017 Kia Sedona works great and are rock solid. I have two Kayaks I take to the lake, river, and beach house for vacations. Dena was extremely helpful and kept me up to date on everything. It’s very seldom to find a company with reps that actually care about the customer!!!! Please keep this going! The shipping was fast and easy and I had them installed within an hour in this Georgia heat! The only thing missing was the etrailer stickers......... ;p I would definitely recommend this product from etrailer for any of you rack needs!!!


It worked!


Had the parts I needed when I couldn’t find them anywhere else and they were delivered on time.


No complaints. Except I wish we used it more. Everything went well, their assistance in selection was great and the install went flawlessly.


Holding up great after 1 year, even after leaving it on all winter and running it into my garage roof twice XD

really good product instructions could be a little better.

  • Can the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier Straddle a Ridgeline Tower to Optimize Space
    I called Yakima to confirm. Unfortunately, the JayLow Kayak Carrier, part # Y04073, will not fit around the Ridgeline Towers, part # Y00145. The inner portion can allow it to go over the tower, but there isn't enough space to secure it with the other bracket. It wouldn't be safe to attempt this. However, the JayLow can carry two kayaks, so you may be able to mount the carrier on the inside of the rack and carry both of your kayaks in that way. If you have three, you can measure the amount...

    Yakima recommends their Ridgeline towers # Y00145 with their fit clips # Y06010 for your 2014 BMW X5 with flush rails. Then for crossbars the JetStream bars part # Y00426 are a really great option for an aero shaped crossbar.

    We have the Yakima JetStream roof rack that consists of part numbers # Y00425, # Y00145, and # Y06022 which is a confirmed fit for your 2018 Hyundai Kona.

    For fitting a cargo box and a bike rack on the roof of you 2016 BMW X3 I would recommend going with a 60 inch long crossbar roof rack to give you as much room as possible. For that the Yakima JetStream roof rack part numbers # Y00426, # Y00145, and # Y06008 would be what I recommend as this setup is a confirmed fit for your 2016 BMW X3 and comes with 60 inch bars which would work well.

  • Recommended Locks for Yakima Streamline System Ridgeline Towers
    I have good news for you! You don't need to get new towers to add locks to your roof rack; the Ridgeline towers accept locks from the Yakima SKS system but they're not included with the towers. You can use the Yakima SKS Lock Cores # Y07204 on your Yakima Ridgeline Towers # Y00145. The SKS Lock Cores come in a package of 4, so you'll have enough cores to add to each of your Ridgeline towers and keep everything secure using a single key. If you have more Yakima products that require cores...

    The best option we have for a 2020 Hyundai Tucson is going to be the Yakima JetStream Crossbar System part # Y00425, part # Y00145, part # Y06017. This system comes with everything that you need so there is no need to piece different parts together. The aero shaped crossbars are going to look much sleeker than the square crossbars and they will be much less noisy. Unfortunately, there is no way to use old square crossbars because the mounting feet required for them have been discontinued...

    The Yakima roof rack parts are sold individually, to install on a 2021 Mazda CX-5, you'd need the crossbars, the # Y00145 RidgeLine towers as well as the # Y06029 RidgeClip fit kit. We don't include the RidgeClip fit kit with the purchase of the towers because they are the vehicle specific portion of the rack. The parts would work great with the Yakima JetStream crossbars in black as part # Y00425. .

    The specifications I have access to indicate that RX-350's come with flush mounted roof rails that run from front to back.

  • Yakima Roof Rack that Fits 2018 Lexus GX 460
    Thule actually changed the design of their square crossbars a couple years ago so any of the current rack fits would not be compatible with the older style of bar you have. The current bar now has a slot that runs down the bottom of the bar. Thule actually does not have a rack that fits your 2018 Lexus GX 460 but Yakima has their round bar roof rack part numbers # Y00408, # Y00145, and # Y03536 that would work well.

In order to use the Yakima round crossbars you had on your Q7 on your RX 350 you will need to use the RidgeClip Fit Kit part # Y06027, RidgeLine Towers part # Y00145, and the RoundBar SL Adapter part # 8880641 (4).
