Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


I have these installed on a 2022 Honda Pilot. I could not get them to fit on my raised roof rails with the included rubber gaskets. I have mounted them without the gasket but this leaves a gap between the rail and the landing pad. This seems secure but does not have a finished look. I will be trying to see how to get the gaskets to fit.


Comments
You definitely want to use the gaskets and I dont recommend using the crossbars without them. Here is an install video that might help you out with this part. Let us know if you still some assistance after watching.

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


I was seriously disappointed ?? the landing pads are not made for the Tacoma and sit on the roof with a gap that looks bad and will let water and trash into the bolt parts of the rack to roof juncture. For the amount of money it should be made correctly. I was also shocked to find that the landing pads upper parts were plastic… I have used Yakima for over 30 years and never expected a “cheap out “ like that! I was so disappointed I have never used the racks! They also only have provisions for one of the two bolts at each landing pad roof juncture. Disappointed ??!


Comments
I have a few questions about your 2016 Tacoma. Is it a double cab or access cab? Did you have a naked roof, factory raised rails, or factory roof rack?

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


Wanted to salvage my round bars and all other Yakima products I had previously on my Tacoma. These worked great. Easy to install. The directions are very clear. I only recommend taking your time with the install to make sure you've got it all aligned and waterproofed correctly.


Comments
After a year of use, these are still going strong. 8pairs of XC skis on a 300+ mile adventure to Jackson Hole. Downhill skis all winter. Kayak on top all summer. And I love the quick disconnect ability so I can throw the bars in the bed on long drives if I have nothing on top.

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


I recently purchased a rack system for my 1979 Ford Bronco to haul our new Kayaks. And believe me it was not easy to "fit" a vehicle as old as this.

I had some interesting challenges - my truck has a 3" lift and only clears my garage entrance by about 1.5 inches, so whatever I got had to be easily removable (at least in the front). I also wanted it to be multi functional so that I could carry other stuff as well, and the Yakima/Thule systems are great for that. Lastly, I wanted whatever I put on the truck to look good as I have put a lot of time and $ into fixing up this old truck and I didn't want it to look cheezey.....

Thanks to the good folks at etrailer I ended up with somewhat of a hybrid approach (my choice) but it worked out exactly as I envisioned it. I purchased the Thule Xsporter Pro system for the rear which works well with only minor modifications to the truck. I can lower it easily so I can get the truck into the garage without removing the system altogether. I really like that the tailgate is still functional with the system installed as some others I had in mind were bumper or hitch attached and would not allow use of the tailgate.... And, lastly it looks nice enough to just leave it on all the time.

On the front I chose the Yakima JetStream cross bar held up by a pair of Yakima SkyLine Towers and Landing Pads which I chose because I can easily remove the crossbar/towers to get the truck into my garage. The Landing Pads have covers for when not in use and are small enough to not be too noticeable.

I also added the security locks for peace of mind.

I have added 3 pictures, the first shows the Landing Pads without the towers & crossbar. You can also see the Xsporter Pro on the rear in its lowered position. The 2nd shot is a closeup of the Skyline Tower. The 3rd picture shows the entire system installed ready for my kayaks (or whatever).

Thanks again to the folks at etrailer for their expert advice and customer service.

They were relatively easy to install, I received them in short order and I am happy with their substantial construction. In short, I'm a happy camper. Thank you.

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.

Fit good with the OE track on roof. I like the new covers they supplied with the mounts.

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


Easy Install.

But, the instructions
tell you torque bolts to 48 in lbf or 5.4 Nm, with the L shape security wrench.
How do you apply a specific torque to a L shaped wrench?
Can't put a torque wrench on it.
My question and reason for 4 stars is for Yakima. Why not supply a preset torque driver like the one supplied for the Skyline Tower installation?

Overall I'm quite pleased.


Comments
Thank you for your review. That is a good question. I would use another wrench or hollow nut driver as leverage to tighten the L wrench down.

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


Very good product. The Yakama towers and cross bars feel very solid and appears to be high quality. Very easy install. Others have complained about the instructions, but guess I'm a visual person because the pictures all seemed very clear to me and the install was very easy. They do sit higher than I expected. After adding a Rhino Rack cargo basket, we only have about 4-5" clearance below the garage door.

No questions or comments. They are on my wifes Forester and she lovesthem.

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.


Comments
Still an outstanding product

Great product as always with Yakima. Just be aware the towers are not included and they currently don't carry a tower for round bars.

Still working great, no leaks in camper roof!

The Landing Pad 15 was exactly what I needed for 2019 Subaru Outback Yakima Sky Line Towers. I am 5'3" older lady and was able to install the entire system with Jet Stream crossbars without assistance, thanks to videos. (Yakimas instructions are photo only). But I really want to commend your company on the website, shipping, video tutorials, personalized communication, and follow up. Great job etrailer!

Landing pads are fine. We've been using with round bars to transport kayaks. No issues.

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


I bought a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. To use my Yakima Skyline Towers, I had to install these landing pads in the rack rail attached to the roof. The installation was easy, and the pads serve their purpose. But they don't seem to be engineered as secure as I would like. They have more flexibility than I think they should. The bolt head is over an inch from where it screws into the roof. I think Yakima could have engineered something more secure. In fairness to Yakima, the Jeep rack rail is different than any other rack system I've seen and is incompatible with any other system. But I am assuming that these landing pads will work OK with a full load and that the Yakima engineers have done an adequate job. This summer they will be put to the test for 3,000 miles. Note: the Yakima windshield fairing falls on the glass in the moon roof rendering the moon roof unopenable so long as the fairing is used.

These Landing Pads are needed with the Yakima System to connect the Towers (which hold the crossbars) to the rails, which in my case are on top of my pickup canopy. There are many sizes of Landing Pads available, but the Landing Pad 1 I needed connects to the standard Yakima Rails. etrailer had them in stock when I needed them and shipping was fast and easy.

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.

One year and working great. Super solid product. Costly, but well worth the money. Will last forever.

Easy to install and sturdy. I carry a 9' pontoon boat on my camper shell using this rack at freeway speeds with no problems.

Review from a similar LandingPad in Roof Rack


Installation was relatively easy, instructions were clear and easy to follow. These are medium duty mounts, secured by a single bolt per pad, and suitable for kayaks and other moderate loads on-road, which is exacly what I'm using them for. The manual specifically calls out against using these for off-road applications.
I'd suggest that anm installer cleans all surfaces to be sealed (bolt holes and the area around them)thoroughly with isopropanol to guarantee a long-term leakproof bond for the silicone sealant. Vibration, tensile and shear stresses, thermal cycling and other environmental factors really stress sealants in these sorts of applications.
All in all, I'm satisfied with the mount design's suitability for its intended application. I just wish Yakima would manufacture their stuff anywhere other than mainland China.

  • 2007 Jeep Commander with Flush Rails Roof Rack Recommendation
    For an aero bar roof rack that fits the flush rails of your 2009 Jeep Commander I'd recommend the Yakima CoreBar kit part # Y00422, # Y00148, and # Y00225. This fits directly to the flush rails on your vehicle roof, gives you aero shaped bars which minimize wind noise, and aren't nearly as expensive as some of the other kits.
