    Q:

    Do they fit on the square/rec bars?

      A:

      They are initially made to fit the yakima round bars, but the instructions
      do say that you can trim some of the rubber on the inside to make them fit
      square bars.

      Alex, they fit Yakima round and square crossbars

      Answered on 9/8/2013 by Clyde from NRS
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      These brackets are designed to work on both round and square bars. While I have not used them on square bars, there are directions that come with the brackets to adapt them to a square bar. These are really well made and I have been very happy with them when used with my Yakima racks. I have two sets and use them to carry two separate canoes on my Chevy Equinox. My only concern regarding using them in square bars, however, is that is does take some modification to the bracket. After that modification is made, I do not think they could be used on a round bar.
      Hope that helps.

            I was getting shifting of lightweight canoe at highway speed. The gunwale brackets make it easier to load and keep it in line.

              I have wanted these for a long time, and finally spent the money for them. Now that I have used them, I wish I would have made this purchase years ago. They totally stabilize my canoe on the roof and it doesn't even want to 'swim' down the highway now! It is straight as an arrow and easier to load. The canoe goes in the same place every time. The straps that come with them are first quality as well.

              • Unsafe buckle

              Best Uses

                Comments about Yakima Gunwale Brackets:

                These brackets are nicely finished and easy to adjust and use. The included straps have a really nice padded surround on the buckle, but the buckle itself is totally unsafe. It feels secure, but very easily releases suddenly even when you hold the cam hard against the strap when tightening. Very inferior to the NRS brand buckle, which has sharper teeth.
