A quick 'n' easy Yakima Rack option.

The Yakima Control Towers, formerly Locking RailRiders, in conjunction with Landing Pads are quick and easy to install on vehicles with factory racks with tracks. Control Towers snap solidly into Landing Pads (required, see YAK0080) which fit into almost every factory track. Throw in crossbars, and voila! you have yourself a Yakima base rack that carries a full load of gear. Secure your Control Towers with SKS locks, sold separately. **FOR SET OF 4, SEE YAK0079.

Yakima Control Tower

Don?t neglect your factory tracks or rails any longer. Control Towers are quick and easy to install and remove. Paired with Landing Pads, these instantly make your vehicle ready to carry any gear your heart desires.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I added a 3rd Control Tower to my rack system to carry more weight. Spreading the load out over three bars will let me load up my basket or box with all my gear.
