Don't Worry, We Have A Spare
I have multiple racks both hitch and roof from Yakima and competitors for various combinations of watersports equipment and bikes across multiple vehicles. Art is spot on in his description of the system not being Yakima's most elegant design and giving good advice with the suggestion not to remove once fitted. The issue is that although the system works and the pieces are secure when tightened in place the same is not true when the racks are removed. Once removed the tower pack individual clips are just floating loose and are highly prone to falling off, particularly if they are inverted or jostled. That is definitely a foreseeable event in between the vehicle and any storage. I am right now online looking for a replacement for one outer clip that has gone missing between taking the rack off a couple weeks back for a tight fit in a parking garage and now. That creates a significant problem in terms of near term departure planning and I'm not having much luck buying a new part short of replacing a whole pack for 139. Again it is functional when on though and I understand it's hard to make a system interoperable with multiple rail designs across vehicles manufacturers so still 3 stars.
When (if) you ever get this rack system positioned properly, don’t ever remove it. This system seems to have been designed by Rube Goldberg. I have been using Yakima products for about 40 years and this one could cause me to switch to another system .
