    Comments about Yakima Racks Control Tower Roof Rack System:

    This is my third set, starting in 88 when car still had rain gutter, in 99 installed RailRider, which I am now replacing after 13 years of continues service carrying bike racks, canoe stops, kayak stands and saddles and Rocketbox filled with either camping equipment or skis and snowboards. Probably could of got another couple of years of service accept for this one overhead roof.

        Comments about Yakima Racks Control Tower Roof Rack System:

        Yakima products have NEVER let me down. These things are tough, fairly simple and work - period.

        The only downside is that if you use the landing pads they are quite large. I take my rack on and off (I have a simple hoist in my garage) any time it's not in use and the pads stay on all the time. They stick up quite a bit - I would think Yakima could have produced something just as strong and utilitarian at about half the height.

        Keep in mind my landing pads may be bigger then yours and the system is stronger with pads then just with regular towers!

          How does it attach to the car? Do you have to buy something separate to attach it?

            A:

            Control Towers are meant to screw into the factory mounting points, which may or may not work for your vehicle. If not, you can go with the Q Towers. Give our staff at the Paddlesports shop a call (or stop by) and they can make sure you buy the right base rack system!
