Also, removing our end cap here, you can see that you can utilize T-track accessories with this as well. And what sets this apart from the other roof rack systems is instead of having to remove this strip and cutting it to length once you put the accessories in place, you simply push down the strip and slide the T-track accessories in, making it much easier.Also, moving down to our tower here, we do have this nice end cap here which can be removed; however, there is a spot here for this plastic piece here to be removed and replaced with the Yakima SKS lock cores, which are sold separately, so you can secure this to your roof once you're installing it.
