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.

Review from a similar LockNLoad in Roof Rack

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.

  • Can Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray Y05045 Be Installed On 2017 Toyota Tacoma W/ OEM Roof Rack
    When the OEM roof rack on your 2017 Toyota Tacoma is in the stowed position the crossbars are removed and put inline with the rails on the side, so when in this position the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray - Aluminum - 60" Long x 54" Wide # Y05045 or any other roof mounted accessories cannot be used. With that said you would still have the same 100lb load limit. Instead the crossbars will need to be opened up for the # Y05045 to be installed, and you will need to use the Crossbar...

  • Recommended Platform Rack System without Crossbars for 2019 Toyota Highlander XLE
    For a low profile platform style rack similar to a Rhino Rack Backbone System, the only available option is the Yakima Roof Rack and Platform System that uses parts # Y05045, # Y00148, # Y05042-2, # Y00242. This kit combines the Yakima Lock N Load Platform # Y05045 and Yakima Skyline towers # Y00148 to give you the platform without a crossbar for the low profile setup you're looking for. The additional parts are for the footpack and adapters to allow you to mount the towers to your 2019...

    In order to mount the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray part # Y05045 on a truck bed camper shell I recommend using the Yakima HardTop SL Roof Rack part # Y01618 because it's a complete all around system that has everything that you need. It comes with adjustable tracks to accommodate many different roof rack accessories and aero crossbars for the best wind resistance. It's also low profile at around 4-6" tall. Unfortunately, there isn't any sort of Rhino-Rack Backbone Mounting System...

  • Low Profile Roof Platform Recommendation for 2020 Toyota 4Runner with Factory Side Rails
    For your 2020 Toyota 4Runner with the factory side rails, I recommend the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray 60" Long x 54" Wide, part # Y05045. It's pretty low profile at only 4 inches tall, and it will not interfere with your sunroof, since it will sit right behind it. I've attached a couple of photos so you can see for yourself. To attach the platform, you'll need the LockNLoad SL Adapters # Y05042-2 (qty 4), and TimberLine Towers # Y00147 (qty 4). This will add approximately another...

  • Is There a Platform Rack For a 2019 Ford Expedition That Mounts To Side Rails
    If you want to use a platform rack and mount it directly to the side rails on a 2019 Ford Expedition (Includes Max) then I do have an option for this in the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray Kit part # Y05045, part # Y05042-2, and part # Y00147. The Yakima LockNLoad has integrated channels which allows you to use channel mounted accessories and it uses horizontal cross sections which allows you to use accessories that clamp on as well like a rooftop tent.

  • How to Mount a Platform Rack to the Roof of a 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500
    There is a possible solution for you, but there aren't any Yakima or Rhino-Rack platform racks that can fit your 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 without having a crossbar system. For your crossbars, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, part # RRVA180B-2. They are aero-style crossbars that are better at reducing wind noise and drag than other styles. I've linked to a video review of these crossbars below. To mount these crossbars, you will need the Quick Mount Legs, part...

  • Can Yakima LockNLoad Platform For 2017 Toyota Highlander XLE be Used with Roof Tent
    The Yakima LockNLoad Platform part # Y05045, # Y00148, # Y05042-2, and # Y00242 would work great for your tent setup. This will give you a 165 lb dynamic weight capacity which is the standard capacity needed for tents which would use a static capacity instead and would be much higher. This is a creative solution to give you the additional spread you'd need for your tent too!

  • Can I Use The Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform Rack On My 2021 Subaru Ascent?
    As of right now I do not have any information as to if the Rhino Rack Platform will be compatible with your 2021 Subaru Ascent. If you want to get a platform on your 2021 Subaru Ascent, you can use the Yakima LockNLoad # Y05045 and use these adapters # Y05042-2 and these towers # Y00147. The towers just wrap around your current side rails. This would only add about 4 inches to the top of your roof and it's your only roof tray option.

  • Platform Rack For Ford Expedition XLT 2018
    We have a platform rack for you but the Rhino Rack platform is not one that will work. I do have a Yakima platform # Y05045 that will work for your 2018 Ford Expedition. You just need this adapter # Y05042-2 and these towers # Y00147. This will add about 4-3/4 inches from your roof to the top of the platform. It will add less height to your side rails so it is rather low profile. This rack is the same as the rhino rack but just Yakima. I've included a video for you to watch so be sure...

  • Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack for 2019 Ford Expedition with Factory Rails and No Crossbars
    I actually had the chance to work with a 2019 Ford Expedition. While in the shop, I tested the RhinoRack roof racks we had shown to be compatible with the factory installed rails and to my surprise, the SX Series Legs # RRSX100 were not a fit. When trying to install them, I could tell they were not tall enough to catch on the rather large and triangular shape of the Expedition rails. The only style of legs or towers that will work is the kind that wraps around the entire bar, like the...

  • Largest Yakima LockNLoad Platform That Fits 2 Roof Rack Crossbars
    I checked with Yakima and the largest LockNLoad Platform Tray that will work with a roof rack system with two crossbars is the 60" Long x 54" Wide Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray # Y05045. To mount this tray to your BMW you will need the Crossbar Clamps for Yakima LockNLoad Platform # Y05039. The 84" Long x 49" Wide LockNLoad Platform # Y05047 does require at least three crossbars to mount. Using less than that would make it unstable, and not only void the warranty, but potentially...

    In order to install the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Roof Tray above a tonneau cover on a truck bed you will need to install a set of tracks alongside the bed rails along with a crossbar system.
