Review of Yakima Accessories and Parts Y05000


Today we're going to review part number Y05000. This is the Yakima Load Stop brackets for Yakima roof rack cross bars. These L shaped brackets will attach to your Yakima roof rack round cross bars and they allow you to carry a multitude of items including ladders, canoes and lumber. These brackets will prevent lateral shifts in your cargo and handle thicker, taller loads with high vertical ledges. These sturdy L shape brackets will mount on Yakima round roof rack cross bars. It is made of a hard plastic construction.

Now on the very top and the side is a gripping ribbed surface. This will allow the load you will be carrying to not shift on your roof. They are very rigid to help brace objects and they are very resilient to protect your delicate surfaces. These are compatible with heavy duty straps and the bow stern tie downs which we sell separately. This part number will contain four brackets.

It will contain the four wing nuts and the washers and bolts to attach it to your Yakima roof rack cross bar. This does come with a limited lifetime warranty. I have an example here of a Yakima round cross bar. Now the feet are in more than normal because I'm just putting it in the video. On your vehicle they would extend out more, but basically you just take the load stop bracket, which is you can see here.

Attach it to your round cross bar, attach the other one and then you'll just move these in or out depending on the load you'll be carrying. Then basically you just take the washers off the carriage bolt, slide it through, put your washers on, put your wing nut on, and snug it down. That will hold that bracket into place and you'd do the same on the other side. Install the wing nut, snug it down, you don't need to over tighten it. That will hold your load on your roof rack and then you'd use the straps and the tie downs to attach your load to the roof rack.

That should do it for review on part number Y05000.
