Fit of the Yakima EvenKeel and the Rola Extended Series Roof Rack for a 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander


Hello, will the Yakima EvenKeel Flexible Boat Saddles fit Aero Bars? I am looking to also get Rola Sport Extended Series Roof Rack with APE Mounting System

I went out to our warehouse and pulled a Yakima EvenKeel, part # Y04052 and a kit of the Rola Extended Series Roof Rack, part # 59834 to see the fit.

The Even Keel does fit the Rola bars. It takes an extra step though. The bar is too wide to fit into the clamp's opening, even though the inner part of the clamp is large enough. I had to unscrew the locking bolt all the way out of the sliding clamp, let it slide freely in the channel underneath the holder, then open it all the way and hook over the back of the bar, then the front of the bar and retighten the bolt, letting me have the fit.

I also recommend adding a set of Malone Quik-Lashes, part # MPG308 , which will let you add a lashing point to the front of your vehicle with a hoop rather than putting the tie down or ratchet hook against your vehicle's roof and trunk directly.
