  • Differences Between the SmarT-Slot and Replacement FatCat Mounting Kit for Yakima Ski Racks
    Between these two parts, the SmarT-Slot, part # Y03098 and the Replacement Mount kit, part # 8860085, the primary difference is the height at which they sit. The FatCat 6 will operate normally. Both of these kits will allow you to channel mount the FatCat 6 on your aero style crossbars. The Replacement Mount kit, part # 8860085 is likely the better choice if you have higher bindings as it sits taller than the SmarT-Slot kit, allowing you to clear the roof with the taller bindings.

  • Distance Between Mounting Location on Yakima Fatcat 4 and Fatcat 4 EVO
    The Yakima FatCat EVO 4 Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Locking - 4 Skis or 2 Boards - Black # Y03095 has mounting holes that are inches apart. I reached out to my tech contact at Yakima and he said the Old FatCat 4 mounting holes are 12 inches on center and the newer FatCat 4 EVO will be longer at about 16 inches. Once you account for the width of the Aero Crossbar SmarT-Slot Kit 2 for Yakima FatCat Ski and Snowboard Carriers # Y03098 it will be another 1/2 inch on each side for the T-slot...

  • Improvements Included in the FatCat 6 EVO beyond the FatCat 6
    There's a few notable improvements for the FatCat6 EVO, part # Y03097 over the previous version of the FatCat 6. The first is the notable improvement of using Yakima's newer rubber coated steel strap mounting system. This is an extremely quick to mount system that locks using the integrated Same Key System. It fits AeroBars sized up to 3.5 inches wide by 1.75 inches tall, and didn't fit those in the previous version. The EVO also includes additional adapters for round and square bars,...

  • Can I use Yakima SmarT-Slot Kit in Thule Xsporter Crossbar
    Yes, you can use the the SmarT-Slot Kit 2 part # Y03098 to mount your FatCat EVO part # Y03096 to the T-slots in the Thule Xsporter crossbars. I went to the warehouse and tested the Yakima bolt in the T-slots of a Thule Xsporter bar and it fit perfectly. You can use the Yakima SmarT-kit 2 in any Thule Xsporter bar T-slot. The FatCat EVO part # Y03095 fits crossbars up to 3-7/16 inches wide by 1-1/2 inches tall. The Crossbars of the Thule Xsporter ladder rack are 3-1/3" inches wide by...

  • Will Yakima Aero Crossbar SmarT-Slot Kit Bolts # Y03098 Fit Thule M6 Wing Nut
    I actually went out to our warehouse to test a bolt from the Yakima Aero Crossbar SmarT-Slot Kit # Y03098 with an M6 wing nut from Thule (part # 753-0783). The Yakima bolt threaded into the nut perfectly which means it is indeed an M6 bolt. They will work just fine with a Thule M6 wing nut like what you have.

  • Recommended Yakima Ski and Snowboard Rack With T-Slot Channel Mounts
    The Yakima FatCat EVO 6 Locking Rooftop Ski and Snowboard Carrier # Y03096, or the Yakima FatCat EVO 4 Locking Rooftop Ski and Snowboard Carrier # Y03095, will fit directly to the T-Slot of your roof rack but only with the adapting hardware kit. The necessary hardware can be found in the Aero Crossbar SmarT-Slot Kit 2 for Yakima FatCat Ski and Snowboard Carriers # Y03098. I spoke with my contact at Yakima and confirmed this hardware is what you will need to mount the FatCat to your crossbar's...

  • Best Roof Rack System for a 2016 Mazda CX-5 with Naked Roof for Skis and Fishing Poles
    The best option for the 2016 Mazda CX-5 is the Yakima BaseLine kit.

  • Using the Yakima FatCat Evo 6 with Rhino-Rack RSP and the Yakima SmarT Kit
    The FatCat EVO 6, part # Y03096 can use Yakima's SmarT Kit, part # Y03098 to fit to your Rhino Rack RVP's, part # RRRVP27 T-Channel slot. I recommend tightening the T-Screws as tight as possible to make sure that the carrier seats onto the bars.

This same distance while using the Aero Crossbar SmarT-Slot Kit 2 part # Y03098 is 3-1/2" therefore it will become about 1-1/8" shorter.

  • Roof Rack and Ski Carrier for a 2014 Lexus RX 350
    For your 2014 Lexus RX 350 I recommend keeping things lower profile with your roof rack and ski carrier. Yakima's RailBar kit, part # Y00434-2 for Silver and part # Y00449-2 for black, provide a low profile, easy to install kit to add roof bars with a factory look onto your Lexus RX 350. These bars are easy and quick to install and include channel mounts, important to keeping a low profile on the vehicle. One of the best features of this rack is that the top channel's rubber inset actually...

  • Recommended Ski and Snowboard Carrier for 2016 Jeep Patriot
    The Thule SnowPack Ski & Snowboard Carrier - 6 Skis or 4 Boards # TH7326 will fit on a 2016 Jeep Patriot but you may have issues with taller bindings. If you are concerned about fit, I recommend you look at the Yakima FatCat EVO 6 Locking Rooftop Ski and Snowboard Carrier - 6 Skis or 4 Boards - Mirror Black # Y03096 as an alternative. It has the integrated SkiLift to provide clearance for tall bindings. It is also able to be used with T-slots if you add the Aero Crossbar SmarT-Slot Kit...

  • Best Yakima Roof Rack For 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee With Black and Chrome Track
    I recommend the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 with the SkyLine Towers part # Y00148 and landing pads for the towers part # Y00244. The JetStream and CoreBar are very similar with a 165 lb capacity and aerodynamic design to cut down on wind noise. However, The JetStream bars offer the T-slot for accessories with a rubber weather strip that does not require trimming like it did in the past. I highly recommend using the JetStream bars with the T-Slot and getting the Yakima FatCat Ski...

  • Ski Rack for 2020 BMW X3 With Factory Roof Rack
    We do have an option for you but I checked with both Thule and Yakima and neither of their ski racks will clamp directly around the wider 4 inch crossbars of your 2020 BMW X3's factory roof rack. However, based on my research it looks like your BMW's rack does have a T-slot (channel) at the top of the bars. What I recommend is the Yakima FatCat EVO 6 Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Locking - 6 Skis or 4 Boards # Y03096 with the Aero Crossbar SmarT-Slot Kit 2 for Yakima FatCat Ski and Snowboard...
