Product Details

As part of their truly innovative StreamLine™ roof rack system, the Yakima BaseLine Tower easily adapts to fit the ever-changing roof shape of automobiles. The perfect fit for naked-roof vehicles.
  • This is the tower to use for a bare roof that has no factory-installed rack components.
  • Revolutionary tower design uses a new tri-axial DropHook™ clip-adjustment motion to accommodate a wide range of roof shapes.
  • The DropHook design ensures that the rack is safe and secure every time, no guesswork.
  • The tower's adaptable BarBed™ material conforms to work with RoundBar (with adapter), CoreBar and JetStream bars.
  • BarBed™ allows for 12° of pitch adjustment of the bar angle so that front rear crossbars are as level as possible on vehicles with rounded roof lines.
  • The toe adjustment optimizes the tower position on scalloped roof shapes.
  • The tower allows a maximum load rating of 165 lbs. (75 kg), depending on vehicle and bar rating.
  • Towers come with the only tool needed for installation.
  • To complete the BaseLine Tower System, you will need Yakima BaseClips (#62616.01). The Yakima Fit Guide will help you determine which BaseClips will work with your vehicle.
  • The tower is lockable with SKS Lock Cores (lock cores sold separately).
