Yakima's vehicle specific Q Clips give your Q Tower a secure, glove-like, snug as a bugish, peas in a podesque, custom fit to your doorframe. Q-Clips are sold in Pairs. If you you are using 4 Q-Towers, you will need to order 2 boxes of Q-Clips.

Ensure the correct fit for your vehicle using this step-by-step Automated Fit Guide

FAQ's:

Q: What else is needed to complete a basic rack set up?

A: You will need two pairs of clips, a set of Q Towers and one pair of crossbars. Check the fit list to see which clips and crossbar length is correct for your vehicle.

Q: Will Q Clips work with older towers?
A: Q Clips will integrate with Q Towers only. Yakima makes things retro-fittable where possible, but this is a case where it would have limited their ability to design the best system possible.

Q: I didn’t see a recommended fit for my vehicle in the Fit List. Don’t you think one of these clips would be good enough?
A: Whoa, there! Even though Yakima has over 110 unique clip shapes, don’t think this is some kind of rack buffet. While Yakima is very active in trying to fit all the vehicles that they can, there will be some that they just can’t fit. It can be dangerous to attempt a fit that is not recommended.

Q: How much can I carry?
A: This varies by vehicle, load type and crossbar length. Check the fit list to find out what load types (bikes, skis, boats, etc.) and weight capacity applies to your car.

Q: How can I be sure the system is installed correctly?
A: There is no substitute for following all instructions. You can download instructions on the main product page. Be sure to perform both the Clip Safety Check and Tower Safety Check after every installation. The Q Clip instructions may have additional notes for your vehicle.

Q: Will it damage my car?
A: Yakima takes fitting cars very seriously, and they do everything they can to minimize any effect the racks may have on your cars. However, anything coming into contact with a car’s finish, including Yakima racks, will have some effect over time, and some cars are more prone to these issues than others. So where the possibility of such issues is predictable, we make note of that in the Fit List. When the rack will not be in use for an extended period, it is a good idea to take the rack off of the car. You can also do a lot for yourself by: (1) Making sure the car is clean and well waxed prior to installing the rack, (2) Following all instructions for installation and usage, and (3) avoiding situations, such as car washes, where the rack may be impacted.

    Comments about Yakima Racks Q Clips:

    Swapped out a pair of Q103s on my VW Jetta for these to fit a Prius on a longer trip. Very easy and proper setup took about an hour with all measurements and incremental adjustments. Watch the placement of the protective tape though. During all the tightening one strip of tape bunched up unnoticed which left unprotected metal on car metal. Of course we had a knick in the paint job when I took the rack off, very minor and only in one spot on one side. Check work carefully and consider adding more tape to prevent damage.

          Will use this to transport bikes from college and for group rides. I ordered to different sets of clips so the we can use the bike rack on two different cars. I have an Alero and it was easy to fit and secure the bike rack.

                  I have a 14 foot touring Kayak that I depend on this product to secure on my trips. I didn't realize the importance until I installed it on my car. Since that time, I am a believer and am happy to say that I have nothing negative to say about this product or any Yakima product.
