Honda Element

I have used Yakima products for decades. This was a slightly different application for me however with the existing roof mounts on the Honda Element. The landing pads work well, but I just don't trust the 2 small bolts and the plastic to metal butted connection. I would feel better at 70mph with a more 'fitted' attachment. The finished mount feels good. Time will tell. Otherwise an easy installation and a very good looking one. I like the quick detach towers. The full rack on an Element is noisy, nice not to have to hear it without a boat on.

Etrailer was a very easy to work with and I will use the company again.


Fast delivery. The kit was complete with all the parts I needed.


Yakima roof rack was very easy to install and looks great too!

2004 Honda Element

installed on Honda Element, perfect fit. Yack Racks Rock.


Product is great, but is excellent! Great service; fast shipping; top notch communication. Very pleased.


Very easy install looks great. Took about thirty minutes to install!


Great service, they kept me up to date with the shipping. Would highly recommend and would use again!


Excellent Product. Easy to install!


The fit is perfect!



with so many variables having someone that could sort through all them was very helpful Thanks etrailer


First trip with the new rail system and it looks like it worked out just fine. Thanks to both of you and Kimberly for all of your help and follow up I do appreciate it.


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.


Honestly, I love etrailer. I love the expert help that you all provide. It's clear by the 1 year follow-ups that you care more about the relationships with your customers then just making a sale. Your service is friendly, informative and fast. I always come here first to look for my next purchase. Thanks again-Rob.


It was what it was advertised and fit perfectly on my 2023 Ford Maverick


I had cross bars and landing pads on my Jeep Grand Cherokee. I bought these to put on my wife’s new Grand Cherokee L. They were extremely easy to install and now I can easily move the roof rails between the two vehicles. They are a great product as is most of Yakima’s products. I highly recommend them.


Fit my 2016 Subaru Outback perfectly!


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.


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


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.


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 ??!


Amazing quality easy set up fast shipping buy the locks the 4 pack With this fast shipping super impressed


I love the ease of removing my crossbars at the end of the season with these landing pads. Highly recommend these.


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.


Honestly went back to etrailer after buying something i couldnt find on the big A before because their support was so good and delivery speed was soo fast.

  • Replacement Yakima Landing Pad for 2004 Honda Element
    Thank you for all of the information and the pictures! According to Yakima the only landing pad that has ever been used for a 2004 Honda Element is the Landing Pad 9 # Y00229 which sits on top of those black trim sections on your roof. I reached out to my contact at Yakima who also confirmed this. I'm thinking that whoever installed this roof rack kit used a custom option that you would drill through the roof to install because the feet locations in your pictures sit well in front of where...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2007 Honda Element SC
    Yakima is our only manufacturer that offers roof rack fits for the SC models of the 2007 Honda Element like what you mentioned. For that the Corebar rack part numbers # Y00422, # Y53TR, and # Y00229 would be a really great option. It's an aero bar design which means minimal wind noise and affected fuel mileage.

  • Roof Rack for 2007 Honda Element to Allow Use of Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier TH898
    Thank you for the photo of your 2007 Honda Element for which you want a roof rack that will allow use of the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898. The Hullavator Pro requires that the host roof rack have bar spacing of at least 24-inches, a minimum of 28.5-inches of available bar space, and it also requires that the bars extend outside of the rack feet 4 to 8-inches on both sides. This ensures the lowered carrier will not contact the vehicle. Please refer to the linked diagram that...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch, Wiring and Roof Rack for 2007 Honda Element SC
    I can get you set up with all of that for your 2007 Honda Element SC. For a trailer hitch you need the Draw-Tite # 75659; the wiring option I recommend is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118465. As for a roof rack, the best choice is from Yakima and consists of aerodynamic CoreBar Crossbars # Y00422, SkyLine Towers # Y53TR and Landing Pads # Y00229. This will give your Element a sleek roof rack that attaches to fixed mounting points on your roof;...

  • Recommended Roof Rack System for 2006 Honda Element Used For Roof Top Tent
    It looks like your 2006 Honda Element has fixed mounting points, so you'll need to make sure that the center of each mounting point is at least 28" apart to use a Roofnest Sparrow tent. For a roof rack I recommend using the Yakima Roof Rack for 2006 Honda Element that uses parts # Y00426, # Y53TR and # Y00229, which will give you a durable roof rack capable of carrying the Sparrow XL. This system uses aerodynamic crossbars that will limit wind noise and you can add locks with part # Y07204...

  • Would Rhino Rack Roof Basket part # RMCB02 fit a 2003 Honda Element
    The Rhino Rack cargo basket part # RMCB02 can fit a wide range of crossbar dimensions. It can fit crossbars that are up to 3-1/2" wide x 1-1/4" tall and spaced between 25-1/2" - 43". Most likely this would fit the factory bars of your 2003 Honda Element but Rhino Rack does not have your vehicle in their fit guide at this time so you would need to measure the dimensions and spread of your rack to see if this would fit. Now if you need a set of crossbars we can help with that, but we don't...

  • How To Carry Two Sit On Top Kayaks On a 2005 Honda Element
    The best option for you to haul both the Feelfree Corona and the Feelfree Moken 12.5 on your 2005 Honda Element is with an upgraded roof rack that will allow you to retain the full weight capacity of your vehicle's roof, 165 lbs. For this, I recommend the Yakima CoreBar Crossbar System which is composed of part # Y00422, part # Y53TR, and part # Y00229.
