Could the Rola Cargo Basket Fit Yakima Crossbars Spaced 36 inches Apart


I am planning on getting Yakima Q towers for my 2011 Ford Flex. The cross bar length is to be 36 in as per Yakima. I was looking at the Rola basket cargo carrier and it gave set cross bar length and the closes is 37 1/2 in spread. My question is does the Rola carrier have play in the measurement to fit to a 36 in cross bar spacing or do I have to move the cross bar spacing back 1 1/2 in this would I guess void my Yakima warranty. Thanks

Since the hardware of the Rola Roof Basket part # 59504 can fit wide aero style bars (up to 3-1/4 inch), it would fit Yakima round bars (which are 1-1/8 inch thick), spaced 36 inches apart.
