Review from a similar BaseClips in Roof Rack


I have a 10th gen Civic sedan and I was dying to get the perfect roof rack set for my car. At the time of my purchase there was not many visuals of what the rack system looked like on this car. I purchased the: •Yakima 50in Jetstream crossbars •Yakima baseline towers •bc182 & bc183 clips •Yakima 46in fairing Overall I love how it looks on my car! During This COVID pandemic I have been camping more, and this is the perfect foundation! First off, the 46in fairing is the perfect fit for the 10th gen civic! Wind noise is low also with the help of the aerodynamic crossbars. My main concern was the fuel efficiency. On long road trips I still average 38-40 mpg with the rack on. My daily commutes I average 34 mpg without Econ on.

These are great, and it is so nice to get a custom base clips that match the angles and contour of the sides of your roof. Makes it look very clean. These are made very well and for sure these will last a long time like my other Yakima products.

Review from a similar BaseClips in Roof Rack


I bought a set of baseline towers and a jet stream crossbar and mounted them on the roof of my 2018 Tacoma. I have another crossbar on the back of my truck cap. This set up is perfect for carrying long items like my canoe. James at etrailer was extremely helpful in helping with the necessary parts for this configuration.


Comments
My Yakima rack set up continues to be a great solution for carrying my canoe on my Tacoma. Extremely solid and has caused no discoloration on my roof. I take the rack off for the winter months. It was takes me no more than 5min to take the crossbar off or put it back on my truck. Terrific product!

Was purchasing the Yakima kayak rack and was unable to find the base clips anywhere. None of the stores had any in stock. Called Yakima and they gave me the E-Trailer contact. Best customer service ever ! Got my clips within a couple of days and just today got my kayak carrier installed. Thank You Christian for your help and follow up !

The installation was super easy, and despite a long time stuck in shipping the delivery itself was extremely fast, and the package arrived in spotless condition. The manuals were very easy to follow, and the end result is absolutely amazing. They provided a nice, flush finish and hold the racks down tight.

I though I would love the core bar set up on my truck but I have really grown to love them! Weather it’s bikes, kayaks or a ladder it works great! And even better it looks great! Quieter than Thule square bars and Yakima round bars by far. I would not only buy again but one of the bars was damaged in shipment and etrailer took care of it by sending a new one to replace it right away. Will be buying from them again! Good customer service!!!!

Excellent customer service, decently quick delivery, and the only store that I've found on the entire internet that sells these clips. Last company let me purchase them, then told me a week later they were out of stock, so it was nice to get these in the mail from etrailer as ordered!

I ordered the Yakima "aero" bars , baseline towers, and BaseClip kits for my 2019 Honda Civic 5 door. While expensive the quality is excellent and it was a pleasure to assemble such a high quality and precision engineered product. It fits perfectly on my new car and the "aero" bars are quiet even at freeway speeds. Highly recommended.

Hyundai Sonata - glass pano roof. These items have been on for about 1-year. So happy with the set up. I’ve take a road bike and a mountain bike on 500+ mile trips. The mounts do an excellent job.


Comments
2-years into owning my system: I have had the rack on the vehicle for 2-years and never removed it. Every 3-4 months i check the performance of the base clips and they have never come lose. I think best practice is to always check the stability of the rack however i have never had a problem and the system has always stayed tight and firm. Its been a great system for the vehicle.

I order the wrong fit kit and the replacement happened in 3 business days. Prior to that they answered all my questions I had about fitting a 2018 Lexus ES350. Thule does not have a roof rack that supports that car.

I waited several weeks for roof rack to arrive after ordering online. I am accustomed to Thule racks, but could not find any towers/bases to fit the 2019 Santa Fe. Once here, the Yakima rack mounted with ease and I look forward to hauling kayaks or basket on the roof. Thank you etrailer.

Received order promptly thanks to help from Korren! Love Yakima products, well made, components all fit well. Instruction were easy to follow and the products have been well thought out in terms of markings, measuring distances to my specific car model and ease of assembly.

Review from a similar BaseClips in Roof Rack


Customer service was excellent, they called me to tell me one item was backordered and how long it would be. Package was shipped with enough packing material. Install was pretty easy, some of the Yakima measurements in the manual are a couple inches off but no big deal. This will be used to carry a box for when the family takes trips. Can pile all the luggage up top and have more room in the car. I would recommend the Yakima corebar roof rack and etrailer! Their price was lower than 2 other sites I checked.

Review from a similar BaseClips in Roof Rack


I have not bought car roof racks for decades--back when there were those very useful rain gutters. So I was shocked with the high prices. But what you get today is much more carefully engineered with a complicated construction. This Yakima version even comes with a manual 3.5 mm hex driver which turns out to be a torque wrench too. You use it 16 times, torquing to its limit, in installing the two cross rails on the four towers. Years ago you installed the towers where you wanted them on the rain gutters and adjusted the cross rails by sight. No more. You must go on line to Yakima. You must get the precisely engineered dimensions for your exact vehicle. You even adjust the towers for the roof slope and any toe-in of the roof line. Pay attention to the precise instructions. The result is very solid. I wish that I had more space between the cross rails. There is room for another 6 or 8 inches given where the door openings on my 2019 Toyota Highlander are spaced. But then the rear base clips would be different and that logistics would add yet more to the price. I am confident that I can secure a 4 X 8 sheet of plywood on the cross rails. And I will find my vehicle in the mall parking lot easier with those good looking rails. While I am happy with the end product, I wish the vendors had given more explanation of the fixed dimensions of today's installations. That would have helped make my on-line shopping less frustrating. Part of the problem is that Yakima and Thule do not provide cross rails for my LE Highlander's existing tower bases. And I could not get 60 inch cross rails on any of the versions that fit my LE's bases.

Took longer than expected to receive order but knew when order was placed it would be over a month to receive complete order. What I was disappointed in was the installation information, much more complicated than anticipated. Would be better if instructions were provided in one language not multiple, too much text to sort through. Just seems overly confusing, could be done a lot better.

Worked as described, ordering was easy and service was great & I couldn't beat the price, Will buy again from them when needed.

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Roof Rack

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2015 Honda Fit to Carry Thule Hullavator
    To install the Thule Hullavator # TH898 on a vehicle requires an aftermarket roof rack installed that has a bit of overhang past the feet of the rack. The Yakima roof rack part numbers # Y00428, # Y00146, # Y06156, and # Y06165 (x2) would be a great rack to use. It is custom fit for your vehicle, will work with the Hullavator and has aero shaped crossbars which will minimize wind noise.

  • Yakima Round Bar Roof Rack Recommendation for 2018 Honda Fit
    I have a roof rack solution I can provide for your 2018 Honda Fit, but since the Q Tower racks were discontinued by Yakima they never released a Q Tower fit kit for your vehicle. We do have a way for you to install and use your round bars though. For that you'd want the Yakima Baseline roof rack that consists of part numbers # Y00408, # Y00146, # Y03536, # Y06156, and # Y06165. Since already have crossbars though you would need the # Y00408 though.

  • 60" Crossbar Roof Rack System For 2016 Honda Fit
    You could get these 60" long Yakima Corebar # Y00422 with the Baseline Towers # Y00146 and these two BaseClip Fit Kits # Y06156 and # Y06165. They may stick out a little farther than you expect, so watch your head when you get out of your 2016 Honda Fit!. I've included a video for you to watch to get an idea of how they install.
