Don't Worry, We Have A Spare
had the same difficulties as a few others in using an Allen wrench to secure bolts not engineered with the needed precision on a project like this...furthermore, they don't inspire alot of belief in their reliability with the look and feel of them. STILL will give three stars because despite very poor execution on the mathematics regarding bolt fit, they still have not catastrophicly failed after 8000 miles with a large skybox mounted for the majority of those miles
Fit perfect. The Expedition has three mounting spots (front middle rear). I purchased racks & towers 2nd hand but the landing pads I thought would be best purchased new since they're plastic. Fits our 20 CUFT cargo box perfect on the front & middle mounting spots. Looking to gather parts for the rear mounting spot so we can include our kayak. The Kayak is 13' so want to spread out the mounts to front & rear for stability. Skyline towers are great with the landing pads cuz the towers pop out when racks aren't needed; landing pads stay in place till the next adventure. Great design.
I am only partially satisfied with the landing pad. The front ones do not fit properly and I had to use my drill press to make room (in the plastic) for the bolt holding the rail to the roof of the Rav4 2021. They are not as sturdy and rigid as I was expecting.
I have been waiting for the LP 24 to come in stock for my Tacoma. I was able to install it and set it up less than an hour. Installation was easy. Fit is ok. I like that I now have a permanent mount rather than the q clips.
Removal of the OEM rack and installation of the landing pads were easy. The mounts are well-constructed and secure solidly to the vehicle. We are using the medium length Yakima aero crossbars with a Thule Motion XT XL cargo box attached when traveling because it was important to have access to both sides when loading. The only complaint is that the landing pads mount closer together than the factory bars. Other than that, another great product from Yakima.
I just finished installing my Yakima Streamline System. In my opinion, installing the landing pads was the hardest part and took closer to an hour than it did "10 minutes". I'm still not even sure that I have the rubber cover on right. I had the hardest time seeing the pictures to know if the cover should be "tucked in" or if it should "line the outside" of the landing pad. I ended up "tucking in" because leaving the edge of the rubber outside of the landing pad left a bit of a gap between the rubber and my car rails - looked the opposite of "aerodynamic". The screws were also difficult to line up to the screw holes on the flush rails of my car. After installing the landing pads, the rest of the rack system was simple. It was a little bit time consuming to do everything correctly, but I think installing the Skyline Towers and JetStream Bars was much easier overall than the landing pads. Overall, I'm satisfied with my system and think they look really nice on my car. I'm very excited to use them for the first time!
It's not all about capacity for you Yakima engineers. Stability and weight distribution are equally important. 30" wont cut it for a heavy oversized rooftop tent. Was going to go with the landing pad 15 setup until I learned they will not mount to the rear-most points on the factory Subaru Outback side rails.
Holes and slot don’t line up well with my 2017 Ford Explorer making the install a little difficult, even just getting the rubber pad on the base was a bit of a pain. To make matters worse, I’m unable to find a drill bit that fits the supplied fastening bolt head since it seems to have a Yakima proprietary type head on it, the supplied Allen wrench is a pain to use when the fastening bolt doesn’t line up well , 45 minutes into the install and I only have two of the four mounted, thank god I will be able to just leave them on when I finally get them installed
I have a 2017 Impreza, and Yakima recommends this pads. They definitely work and I have had no structural issues. My only complaint is Yakima does not fit the rubber parts to seamlessly match up with the lines of the car. I do have maybe a 1/8" gap between the roof and the rubber fittings of the landing pad. I know that it does cost more to design the pads around the lines of the car but for the finished look, it is totally worth it. The Landing Pad 11, I believe, was designed from the 2010 Subaru Outback when they changed their roof. Just by adding different types of hardware to the kit, it allows the pad to work many different types of cars. I just wish the level of detail and fit, would match up with the competitor.
