Love the Yakima LocknLoad 55x49 Platform.. would have been nicer if it was just a few inches longer. Fits really well on the 2019 Grand Cherokee.. and looks even better but at highway speeds (60mph+) you will hear it up there... I've also noticed .5 mpg less which is no biggie...I didn't think the Landing Pads (18) were very stable but once in place.. its rock solid!

Mounted to the top of my 2018 F-150 Super Crew Cab. Had Yakima Baselines, with HD Bars, HD Bar Adapters and the locknload crossbar adapters. Wished I was able to install it without crossbars as it requires that I buy them, also adds a bit of height to the the locknload as well.

Very well built, had my wife (125lbs) walking around on it after I mounted the locknload. Took about an hour to assemble the locknload and maybe another hour or two of adjusting the bars to where I wanted the locknload to sit on the roof. Other than it looks a bit too high I do love them. Will probably see what I can do about lowering the locknload in the future.



by:

So I set this up for my wife's rig for our trip to Pismo Beach, and gotta say loving it! May end up getting one for my other car!

I've been slowing outfitting both of my Subaru's and etrailer.com has been my go to resource not only do they have alot of gear to choose from but shipping and customer service is top-notch! You'll get a followup after your purchase with help/videos on how to properly install if you are a DIYer don't install untill after you have reviewed, as there are alot of helpful hints so your install is smooth.



by:

Great product and got it fast! Quick installation, definitely I’m ordering more stuff from this company.



by:

Lots of wind noise. Good rack overall



by:

I loved it but recently took it down due to noise. If there is a solution please let me know. I will put it back on once a year for hunting.

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!



by:

This thing added a great deal of flexibility to my 4Runner. Rock solid and almost limitless options for roof storage allowed me to customize it to transport a kayak and roof box that would never have been possible otherwise.



by:



by:

If you need extra flexibility for carrying items with t-slot mounts this platform is great. We got it for or Audi Q7, primarily because in addition to carrying various stuff we needed to carry a spare tire (Audi just gives a can of goo for your flats) while towing. In addition to the t slots the slats also give lots of flexibility for strapping/ratchet strap mounts etc. Be warned the Yakima mounting accessories are VERY expensive. Quality is very good (except perhaps the plastic parts of the frame gave me pause), it is very sturdy and assembly is straighforward. Although not receommended, we were able to mount a rooftop box. I heard a rumor they may be coming out with t slot roofbox mount kits if you don't want to DIY. Note the box needs to have a flat bottom (lots of the Thule boxes won't work).



by:

Love it! Used it on our Subaru Outback when we wanted a firmer and wider platform than the stock crossbars. The platform is even more useful than I thought because you can mount accessories (e.g., canoe carriers) all the way to the edge if you use the T-channel to secure them. I would've probably gotten one size smaller had I realized that.



by:

Great project, easy to put together and install



by:

My order arrived quickly with personal customer service. Glad I took a risk as a first time buyer. I could not be more impressed or satisfied.



by:

Well crafted product. Instructions were easy to follow and assembly only took a few hours.

by:

Great service! Jon was great. Thank you



by:

Quick quick service and delivery. Would definitely purchase from them again.

  • How To Attach the Yakima LockNLoad To a Yakima OverHaul HD On a Toyota Tacoma
    Yes, the Crossbar Clamps for Yakima LockNLoad Roof Rack part # Y05039 is what you need to install the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Rack part # Y05044 on the Yakima OverHaul HD Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # Y01151-5868 which is a confirmed fit for your 2018 Toyota Tacoma. That said, you will need to order two sets of the clamps. The Yakima OverHaul HD Truck Bed Ladder Rack when paired with the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Rack is by far the best option to carry a tent on your Tacoma...

  • Crossbar Spacing For A Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack On A 2018 Lexus GX 460
    The Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray # Y05044 (K) you're looking at requires that the spacing from the center of the front crossbar to the center of the rear crossbar needs to be 27" to 33" apart. The platform rack will most likely overlap with the sunroof.

  • Fitting Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray to Round Crossbars
    The Yakima LockNLoad can fit round crossbars but you will need to use the Crossbar Clamps for Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack # Y05039. RoundBar SL Adapters won't allow you to mount the platform to the rack, as they are designed to mount crossbars to certain Yakima roof rack towers. The Crossbar Clamps # Y05039 will fit LockNLoad trays like the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Trays, which come in different sizes such as the 55" Long x 49" Wide # Y05044 and 84" Long x 62" Wide # Y05049.

  • Platform Tray/Roof Rack that Fits 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk
    For your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee we don't have a Rhino Rack Pioneer platform that fits your roof rails directly but we have the very similar Yakima LockNLoad Platform Tray setup part numbers # Y05044, # Y53TR, # Y05042-2, and # Y00244 which does fit your rail setup directly. This tray is 55 inch by 49 inch. We can't recommend opening your roof with this installed though as it might interfere but also it's going to cause quite a bit of wind noise.

  • Low Profile Cargo Tray for Roof of 2018 Ford Transit Connect Long Wheelbase with OEM Crossbars
    For your 2018 Ford Transit Long Wheelbase with the factory crossbars Yakima has the LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray part # Y05044 as a confirmed fit which I think you'd really like. It's lower profile, aluminum, easy to install, and also 55 inch long by 49 inch wide. I attached an install video link to this page for you to check out as well.

  • Can Yakima DeepSpace 10 Rooftop Cargo Box Be Installed on Yakima LockNLoad Platform Tray
    The Yakima DeepSpace 10 Rooftop Cargo Box # Y65RR can be mounted to the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray, like part # Y05044, but you'll be using the clamps for the installation since the DeepSpace 10 currently (July 2023) doesn't have any T-Slot hardware. I confirmed with Yakima that this will work though so you'll be good to go with this combination!

  • Height of Yakima LockNLoad Above Crossbar Clamps and Cargo Basket Fit
    The Crossbar Clamps for Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack # Y05039 are a total of 1 inch in height, but when they are clamped around your crossbars, the LockNLoad is almost directly on the crossbars, as it attaches right to the top of the clamp. These clamps will work with the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Trays like the 55" Long x 49" Wide # Y05044 or 84" Long x 54" Wide # Y05048. As for the mounts, those will not work for a LockNLoad, and while you can't mount a rooftop cargo box to...

  • Correct Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray For a 2016 Honda CR-V with Flush Side Rails
    In order to use the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray on a 2016 Honda CR-V with flush side rails you will need to use the following; part # Y05044, part # Y53TR, part # Y05042-2, and part # Y00245. This will be a direct mount option which mounts to factory fixed points . The tray also mounts directly to the mounting feet so there is no need for additional crossbars and adapters.

  • Is There A Yakima LockNLoad Platform For My 2018 Subaru Forester XT?
    Looking at the available platform style racks for your Forester, we've found that the best fit for your 2018 Subaru Forester is going to be the 60 inch long by 49 inches wide Rhino-Rack Pioneer SX Platform Rack # JA9133. There is no Lock N Load # Y05044 that we have confirmed to fit on your Subaru. This is the same exact thing just a different brand. This rack comes with the SX feet that will connect to your factory raised rails. You do not have to buy the Timberline Lockable Brackets for...

  • Parts Needed to Install Yakima LockNLoad on 2018 Subaru Outback Limited for Rhino Rack Batwing
    The easiest solution would be to order the part # Y05044-39 as this is a kit that includes both the # Y05044 and the # Y05039. The Rhino Rack Batwing part # RR33400 would easily fit to this as well since it can attach to the channels that are present on top of the LockNLoad.

  • How Can I Mount a Pioneer Platform to My RetraxPRO Hard Cover on My 2022 Ram 1500?
    I have an answer for you. Without knowing the exact bed size or whether you have RamBox installed on your 2022 Ram 1500, if you are looking to use a Retrax Pro model with the included rails like the RetraxPRO Hard Tonneau Cover # RTT-80245, I cannot guarantee that the Landing Pad 26 # Y75ZR fit into the dimensions of the tracks of the Retrax tonneau cover. Yakima unfortunately does not test their landing pads on other manufacturers' tracks, so there is no way to tell if the LockNLoad platform...

  • What is Height of LockNLoad Platform Rack for LEER Camper Topper on a 2020 Nissan Frontier
    To install the LockNLoad on your 2020 Nissan Frontier 5' Bed LEER camper topper you need the following parts: - 55" Long x 49" Wide Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray # Y05044 - TrackTowers # Y52AV - LockNLoad SL Adapter # Y05042-2 The TrackTowers sit about 2" tall and the LockNLoad is around 4" tall so you'll be adding about 6" to the height of your LEER topper which is pretty standard for a track mount platform.

    The Ladder Pegs for Rhino-Rack Heavy-Duty Crossbars - 3" Tall # RSLP will not fit in the tracks of the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray # Y05044, but I have something similar that you can use with the LockNLoad. The Ladder Pegs are made to fit in the rhino rack heavy duty crossbars # RB1375B-2. You can use the Yakima Eye Bolts # Y01162 with the lock in load on your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

  • How Many Crossbar Clamps Are Needed for Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack
    In order to install the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray - Aluminum - 55" Long x 49" Wide # Y05044 you will need two sets of the Crossbar Clamps for Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack - Qty 2 # Y05039. So that will be 4 clamps total. Instead of buying them separately you can get the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars - Aluminum - 55" Long x 49" Wide # Y05044-39 which comes with everything you need.
