Video Transcript for Yakima SkyLine And Control Towers Landing Pad Review

Hi there adventures, today we're gonna be taking a look at Yakima's line of landing pads for their SkyLine Towers. And this is what our pads are gonna look like when they're installed. You can see how they attach directly to our factory raised rails, and they're gonna give us an attachment point so we can install a Yakima roof rack on here easily. And this really nice that you've got an option like this because some people just don't like having their roof rack on all the time, 'cause adding a roof rack does cause extra drag which can cause extra noise; wind noise and various things that you may not want all the time when you're driving around. You might just want this only for when you're using it, when you're going on vacation or different trips. So this is a really quick easy way to be able to take on and off a roof rack and also just a very easy way to get a roof rack installed, because often you have to do a lot of measurements and various things to get a roof rack installed, but this is just goes to factory attachment points, so most of the work is done for you.

Yakima's landing pads are designed to fix directly to the raised side rails and fixed points on your vehicle, giving you an easy attachment point to install a Yakima roof rack. The landing pad is designed to attach directly to Yakima's SkyLine Towers and then you can choose the rails that you want. We're showing off the JetStream rails today. The landing pads are gonna be custom-fit for your Vehicle, so you wanna make sure you use our Fit Guide to ensure you get the correct ones that will attach directly to yours. And I think one of the coolest parts about the landing pads here is how quickly you can remove the SkyLine Towers and rails from them, 'cause maybe you don't like the noise; the wind noise, and some other things that happens by putting a roof rack on your vehicle.

It's as easy as pulling out on the cover, and look at that, it lifts right off. We just pull the cover out on the other side and we can just set these in our garage. And we're ready to use them again, it just drop down in place, the cover pushes back on and that locks it in, and they're not going anywhere. Now one of the things I do recommend is switching out the cover here with a lock. You can get lock kits from Yakima here at etrailer, that will work directly with this and that will protect your investment.

That way nobody can just come up and you saw how easy and quickly it was for me to take this off. So it could work away at a potential camp site or something, so I highly recommend those. I also like that these go directly to a factory attachment point, 'cause even if you've got a factory roof rack, maybe that one's damaged, or maybe it doesn't work with your accessories, because it's just simple bars. This one here has T-slots, you got a lot of different options that you can get on a roof rack with, from Yakima here. So get rid of that old system, whether it's broken or just not working out for you and upgrade to a much better one.

If you have an older set of Yakima Control Towers, those will also attach to the landing pads. Since everything's custom-fit for the vehicle, and its going to fixed mounting points, these are extremely quick and easy to install. You follow along with me, I'll show you how to get it done right now. You'll begin your installation by locating your factory attachment points. Once you find those, you wanna remove the cover, it's gonna be different on every vehicle, but we're just gonna pop the cover off with a screw driver. We now take the hardware that comes in our kit and you'll notice that they're labeled. We've got a B on this one and an A on this one. So with the passenger side, the B is the front one, and A is the rear one; and on the driver side it flops, the A is gonna be the front one, and the B is gonna be the rear one. When you put them in place, you wanna be able to see, read the Yakima, so it's kinda like this, then it would just go just like that. So, we're gonna put our B up by the front one, and we're gonna take the A here at the back, and you'll see there is a hole there, right on top, that's gonna line up with the hole in our landing gear pad, so it's just gonna sit into place on there just like that. You'll then have the upper attachment point here, this is going to sit right on top and you also wanna be able to read the Yakima logo. We can then open it up, you might wanna open it up first, just 'cause it's a little stiff. And you'll see there's a hole in this component as well. We'll take the hardware that comes in our kit, we wanna put one of the washers on it, slide it down in there, and then we can use the included tool to run it right down into the top. We'll then repeat this for this three remaining locations. There's a little bit of lock tight that comes on your bolt, so if it feels a little stiff at a certain point, just be careful and just go faster, you can see here it gets stiff towards the end 'cause of that. Now in order to attach a roof rack to your new landing gear rails, you are gonna need Yakima SkyLine Towers. And then you can use whatever crossbars that you want with this. Now in order to get the rails attached to your SkyLine Feet, you need to use the hardware that comes included with your Yakima bars. It's gonna be different depending on the bars that you use. We're using the JetStream bars, so this is what our hardware is gonna look like. It's got a plastic piece and then this will insert in there, so it will slide into the bar. But this does vary depending on whatever your choice is. If you wanna refer to your instructions so you can get this properly attached, based on the bars that you had chosen. So now you can take your prepared bars, you need to have the cover open 'cause that's what's gonna lock it to our attachment point, and then we're just gonna set it in place. And you may need to adjust it, once we get it on there, we're gonna go ahead and just push that cover up, that's gonna insure this side stays on. And then we can go to our other side, and now we're just gonna even out our bar. And there's actually numbers written on the bottom, so you can just make it, so the numbers on the bottom are at the exact same point on each side. Then just open your cover back up once you've got them centered and tighten them down. There we go, we wanna have three clicks on our device so we get the proper torque. There we go. Close the cover back up and that's gonna lock it in place, and we'll just repeat that on the other side, and then install our front rail the same way. Next we're gonna take the rubber strips that come with your bars, and this is really just only for certain type of bars, you may or may not need to do this depending on the rails that you chose. But if you do have bars like this, we'll then put our strip in place. Wanna make sure that we've got it all the way up against our foot pad on the inside here. And then we're gonna run it all the way across to the other side and then cut it to length. And with the little bit of excess that you've got, you can use this as well to cover up the outside. And we're just gonna repeat this at each attachment point here, you got plenty of excess so if you don't make a great cut, you can always make another. And then we'll just repeat for each bar. And that completes our look at Yakima's line of landing pads for the SkyLine Towers..

Toyota Tacoma

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.



After a year of use, these are still going strong. 8pairs of XC skis on a 300+ mile adventure to Jackson Hole. Downhill skis all winter. Kayak on top all summer. And I love the quick disconnect ability so I can throw the bars in the bed on long drives if I have nothing on top.


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 ??!

I have a few questions about your 2016 Tacoma. Is it a double cab or access cab? Did you have a naked roof, factory raised rails, or factory roof rack?

2020 Toyota Tacoma

Installation was relatively easy, instructions were clear and easy to follow. These are medium duty mounts, secured by a single bolt per pad, and suitable for kayaks and other moderate loads on-road, which is exacly what I'm using them for. The manual specifically calls out against using these for off-road applications.
I'd suggest that anm installer cleans all surfaces to be sealed (bolt holes and the area around them)thoroughly with isopropanol to guarantee a long-term leakproof bond for the silicone sealant. Vibration, tensile and shear stresses, thermal cycling and other environmental factors really stress sealants in these sorts of applications.
All in all, I'm satisfied with the mount design's suitability for its intended application. I just wish Yakima would manufacture their stuff anywhere other than mainland China.


Was not a good fit for my TACO. Big gap between the side of roof channel. which allows water to group under there and could cause water on headliner if not 100% sealed with silicone.

Thank you for your review. A bit of a gap is a good thing to drain rainwater if necessary. I would not silicone it just in case water could be trapped. A little gap is necessary but if you have a large gap, please contact Customer Service.


Installation was a bit of work but they’re still in place and working well!


Worked well.


really know your stuff





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


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


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.


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.


In the confusing world of roof racks, the etrailor site had a locator tool that made it easy to identify the correct landing pads and towers for my vehicle.


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.


Very nice and heavy duty. They don’t look too fragile on a lifted truck with oversized tires.


Fit my 2016 Subaru Outback perfectly!


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.


Very easy to replace. Fit perfectly. I had a slight disaster with roof rack and Yakima showdown but fortunately replacing the landing pads was all that was needed. Very happy about the ease of finding, installing and using.


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


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


All I can say is wow!! Outstanding customer service from shipping overnight, to follow up the next day to make sure the package arrived safely and was the appropriate part!! Customer service all stars!!! Thank you so very much!!


Parts arrived as advertised for the model
so happy to find the right fit
But super pricy for some plastic.

  • Should you Fashion your Own Landing Pads
    I would not recommend trying to fashion the Yakima Landing Pads 24, part # Y74FR, out of aluminum yourself. These fit kits have to be very precise, and trying to make one for yourself will definitely void any kind of warranty on the towers and crossbars. As for the strength, Yakima has been doing quite well over the years with improving the quality of their products, so you can rest assured that the material of the Landing Pads 24 is strong enough to handle the 165-pound limit of the crossbars....

  • Yakima Roof Rack Components Fit HD Bar Setup on 2020 Toyota Tacoma with Naked Roof
    Yakima does have an HD roof rack that fits your 2020 Toyota Tacoma with a naked roof but the correct towers for your vehicle are the Baseline towers and not the Skyline. What you would need is the following components # Y01156, # Y28TR, # Y03541, # Y06145, and # Y06128. The fit kit you mentioned does not fit your truck. Since you already have the bars you may not need the part # Y01156 as well.

  • Parts Needed to Install Round Bar Yakima Roof Rack on 2019 Toyota Tacoma
    I can help you install the Yakima round bars you have on your 2019 Toyota Tacoma but Yakima actually no longer uses the Q Tower racks so the Q clips aren't available anymore and were never tested on your truck. So what you'd need is the # Y53TR for the towers, # Y03536 for the roundbar adapter, and Landing Pad 24 # Y74FR since you already have bars like the # Y00408.

  • Recommended Crossbar System For A Camper Shell On A 2013 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab
    For your 2013 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab with a camper shell, I recommend checking out the: -Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425, with the SkyLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y53TR, and the Landing Pad 24 for Yakima SkyLine and Control Towers # Y74FR. These crossbars measures 50" long x 3-1/8" wide x 1" tall, is designed to be mounted to naked roofs like what's on your LEER camper shell, and has a maximum weight capacity of 165-lbs.

  • Roof Rack & Attachments For 2010 Toyota Tacoma TRD SR5
    I would get the Yakima HD Bar Roof Rack System. You'll need the HD bars # Y01156 Skyline Towers # Y53TR HD bar adapter # Y03541 and landing pad # Y74FR. You can then use the JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073, Off-Grid Cargo Basket # Y07139 or Skybox Cargo Box # Y95AV.
