SkyLine Towers

The heavy-duty SkyLine towers allow you to mount 1 Yakima crossbar (sold separately) to your vehicle with fixed mounting points, flush side rails, or tracks. The towers adjust during installation to ensure your crossbar is level. The SkyLines' versatile BarBeds accommodate Yakima's full line of crossbars. The towers install with Yakima's Landing Pad system (sold separately).


Versatile BarBed

SkyLine BarBed

The SkyLine'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 a Yakima RoundBar with adapters (Y03536 - sold separately). The adapters slide over the bar and secure to the towers with bolts.


Torque Tool

The crossbar mounts to the SkyLine 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.


Simple Installation with Landing Pads

SkyLine with LandingPad

The towers install with custom-fit Landing Pads (sold separately). To mount a tower simply open the cover, set the tower on the Landing Pad, and close the cover.


SkyLine Cover

Mounting posts on the bottom of the tower extend when the cover is closed to lock the tower in place on the Landing Pad.


SkyLine 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. Simply loosen the bolt near the top of the tower assembly, adjust the position of your bar, and then re-tighten the bolt.


Same Key System Locks

2 Pack SKS Lock Cores

SkyLine towers are compatible with Yakima SKS lock cores (Y07202 - 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.

The important thing missing is an assembly sketch or drawing. It was difficult to select the parts using the space age names. The names given to the components is outrageous and misleading. I think the "control tower" should be simply called "bracket". "Landing Pad" infers motion where something like "base pad" would be more appropriate. For the most part the system is very stout especially for down loads. It was installed in a few minutes and required no additional tools. The cross bars (good and proper name) are so heavy they raise the CG which is not desirable. Cross bars made of a lighter weight graphite/epoxy would be more compatible with the rest of the system. All in all I was pleased with the end result. Delivery was quick.

Everything was high quality, assembled easily and was exactly what I wanted. Getting email updates from e-trailer when the shipment was going to be slightly delayed was fantastic. These updates saved me time by not having to check on the shipment directly.

Review from a similar SkyLine in Roof Rack


The Yakima roof rack system is an Outstanding product. I purchased the product to replace the OEM roof rack because it was too flimsy to carry the tandem bike mount and my bike. The Yakima roof rack is solid and provides me the peace of mind while hauling my bike on the roof of my car. etrailer provided the product for the best price as always.

Still an outstanding product.

Review from a similar SkyLine in Roof Rack


I bought these products to install on my 2016 Ford Flex. I do not have the factory roof rails, and wanted a system that would install directly to the roof channels and not the door frame. Contrary to what the etrailer.com "expert" suggested, this product does just that. I ended up ignoring the "expert's" advice and ordered this. It installed perfectly and I am very happy with the result and the product.

Very happy with our purchase. We appreciated that etrailer offered real time delivery options as the racks were large and couldn't be left at our mailbox. I love how easily you can remove the entire rack easily. Too bad the locking mechanism comes separately but we are still happy with what we received.

Used these on my 2011 BMW 335. It took a little while to get the threads to catch on the roof attachment the first time I installed them. Otherwise they do what they are supposed to do and don't scratch the roof.

Review from a similar SkyLine in Roof Rack


I have purchased several items from etrailer and have never been disappointed. Service is fast and efficient, and the employees -- especially Sal -- have gone out of their way to be helpful. I recently purchased a new 2016 Mazda 3, and the first item I purchased for it from e-trailer was a set of tire chains. Sal suggested Konig CA12 chains, which are easy to install and work perfectly. Later in the year, I wanted an easy-on, easy-off roof rack to car-top our kayaks, and Yakama towers and landing pads were suggested. I am very satisfied with them, as they have indeed proven to be very easy-on, easy-off. My only problem is with one of the tower locking mechanisms, which comes off while tightening it (see enlarged photo); however, it is a minor problem with Yakama, not etrailer.

Review from a similar SkyLine in Roof Rack


This rating is not related to the actual product. The Towers work as advertised - 5 stars, its the mounting of the Towers themselves that I am rating. Even with helpful videos etrailer has on their site, this was the hardest part of the assembly to add the roof rack I bought. Sadly, it took several hours and trial and error to get these to work. Now that they are on, they work great. Almost gave up on using the roof rack based on how difficult these were to get onto the cross bars and then on to the vehicle. Lots of cursing. I probably should have made a "how not to" video so people could watch and do the opposite of what I was doing. The videos I watched didn't match my experience. Their experience shows as in the videos 1-2-3-4 all done! I struggled mightily thru all 4 steps.

Excellent customer service! Yakima rack components are excellent quality materials, fit and function. The design makes the Skyline crossbar system very quick and easy to install and remove. Also great that Yakima crossbars are compatible with several different brand products

Review from a similar SkyLine in Roof Rack


So this is why I chose the Yakima, was for these towers. I had previously installed the Thule rack on our '16 Explorer, The Thule looked very factory but removal while not in use was not really an option. So this time for my wifes '18 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I went with the Yakima. While the rack is not in use, the rack and the 4 towers can all be easily removed in in 60 seconds leaving only the small landing pads on the roof rails and they are only slightly noticeable. The only issue I have with the pads is the fit and finish were they intersect with the factory support. You can clearly see in the pictures they do not sit flush with the rails. Overall though I am very pleased with the assembly as a whole and would recommend this over the Thule rack.

Review from a similar SkyLine in Roof Rack


I carry a 10 ft. aluminum ladder on your rack for work and sometimes an extension ladder. It works fine. I like it. The only complaint is when its empty it makes a lot of noise. I figured if I ever use it without a ladder, as it doesn't make noise with the ladder on it, I'd split a piece of pvc pipe down the middle and mount that on the front of it. The only other thing is the plugs supplied to cover the hole if you do not buy the locks. One was busted when I got it. I called and the girl I talked to said she'd send me one. She never did so I have black electrical tape wrapped around the hole. Other than that they work fine.

We purchased the Yakima Skyline Towers roof rack with the Jet Stream crossbars. Took about 2 hours to install on the naked roof of our Flex. I drilled through the roof strip for the mounting bolts and they fit tighter than the factory rails. Very happy with our choice.

These towers (Y00148) and the Landing Pads (Y00244) are needed to mount the cross-bars on my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Jeep has flush rails, with an open channel along the top. They are very heavy duty, typical of Yakima stuff. Worked great.

My experience with etrailer has been excellent. There was going to be a potential delay in one of the products, but their customer service promptly informed me, half the price of some of their competitors so can't really complain. In the end they got the part ahead of schedule and was able to ship in a timely manner. I will definitely keep them in mind for future purchases.

You need these if you want to use Yakima HD bars with a track-mount landing pad. The only thing keeping this from a 5-star is the quality of the plastic cover. Difficult to open and feels flimsy.

Review from a similar SkyLine in Roof Rack


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!

You could then install Yakima aero crossbars such as Jetstream 50" # Y00428 or 60" # Y00429.

  • Making a Roof Rack System for 2008 Pontiac Montana SV6 Without Raised Rails
    The roof racks made for the 2008 Pontiac Montana SV6 were designed with raised rails in mind since most of the cars of this model came with raised rails.
