Yakima's RailGrab Towers are the roof rack equivalent of a pit bull: once they clamp on, they're damn near impossible to get off. They quickly bite on to your factory roof rails for a secure fit that opens up a whole world of Yakima roof rack options.

  • Includes four towers
  • Compatible with SKS lock cores (not included)

Great fit

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I was worried these would be difficult to install but in reality these mounts were incredibly easy to install and look great on my car. The bars fit perfectly with these mounts and my cargo rack fits even better sitting on top of it all.


Fit great.

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

These towers worked great on a Nissan Rogue. The included multiple clamp sizes are a good idea.

Yakima RailGrab Tower

For those with raised or flush side rails, the Rail Grab is a no-brainer. It?s low profile, giving your roof rack a sleek, integrated look. It?s also easy to install and remove with included onboard tool.

I lost the Allen wrench for fastening the racks. Anyone know what size it is and what the lengths of the wrench is?

I think that as long as the length is sufficient for you to be able to provide enough torque to fasten the assembly onto the roof rails, you should be fine. Same goes with the allen key size; you should be able to just find one that is the same size, as I don't believe there are any proprietary allen key sizes, I think the one Yakima provides is merely a convenience and courtesy for the purchaser.

Hope this helps.

Railgrab bars for 2014 VW Tiguan

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just bought these bars for our Tiguan with factory rails, and these bars fit perfectly no problems what so ever. They are relatively easy to put on, it took me about 10-15 minutes the first time since i was being really careful. Very happy with the purchase, I also bought the locks which are super easy also.


Yakima Railgrab towers

  • Gender:Male

These things fit great on my 2011 Subaru Forester. I had zero problems installing them and they were rock solid on the factory luggage rails. Then I bought a Subaru XV Crosstrek and they did not fit as well. They felt sloppy and I had to overtighten them to make them fit. The additional smaller sized clamping jaws were too small but the medium jaws were too sloppy. I have no idea why neither sized jaws were really appropriate for the job? So I would give these a 5 star for the Forester but just 3 stars for the XV Crosstrek


Works as expected

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Its not fancy but its wicked effective, worked on my Nissan Pathfinder which has the thickest side rails I have ever seen. My advice is buy the locks not just for security but looks the plastic caps are ugly and 2 fell out in the first few weeks.

Is this a complete set of 4 attachments?

Well worth the money

    Bought these for my 07 Dodge Durango with the factory side rails, The iinitial set up took about a half hour to complete so now once that was done they are simple to take off and put back on as needed. I don't like driving around with them installed being they are a little noise. Overall great product

    I am having trouble finding a rack that will fit on the factory rails for my 2011 Kia Sorrento. I was assured another brand would fit only to find it didn't. The Yakima looks like a good solution but I am leary given my past experience. Also looking at other notes, will it be shipped with the right claw size for my car? My son just qualified for nationals in snowboarding and we have a road trip coming up in 10 days. Thanks for your help!

    Go to the Yakima site and use their Fit Guide. You can call them as well.

    This worked on my 2006 nissan pathfinder, I cant imagine any vehicle having stranger side rails than my pathfinder.

    Yakima Railgrab

      These towers do just what the name suggests, grab on to your factory rails. I added them to a Subaru Outback. Installation was straight forward, with the required Allen wrench included. To install, there first is a height adjustment, then a bolt to tighten to grab the rail, and another bolt to tighten to clamp down on the bar. End caps are included, so no need to buy extras. Pick up a round bar and some locking cores, and the system is ready for a rack.

      Will the Yakima RailGrab Towers fit on a 2007 ford expedition EL with factory rails?

      Yes this will fit. You can use 48 in bars. However on the vehicle that large I would use the 58 in bars to give you more room on your rack for bikes, boats, cargo box, ect. You will need to use the small claw that comes with the rail grabs. Locks are not included, but are recommend.


      Fits just about any factory rail

        Great design, solid material, has numerous adjustments and will fit just about any factory rail. Once I got it I noticed these are on a lot of cars and all attached to the factory rail.
        I got this for a 2006 BMW X3.
        It is worth getting the 6 or 8 locks pack, so you have one key for everything.

          Product as described. Easy to install, easy to adjust.
          Installed on 2003 Honda Odyssey with no fairing and wind noise is negligible at highway speeds.

          trying to find what will fit a 2011 mitsubishi outlander sport with factory base rails. They are raised a few inches and run parallel down the roof but with no gap underneath between the rail and body, so i think i need one of these "grab" style connections. Anyone out there know what will fit correctly.? thank you.


          Yes, sounds like this is what you're looking for. Just to be sure though, use the "Car Rack Configurator" at the top of this page. It is the blue and orange banner just above the product picture.
