Most modern vehicles have smooth, "naked" roof lines for aerodynamic styling that is attractive and creates less drag for improved fuel economy. However, these featureless roofs create a problem when trying to mount a roof rack system. Yakima roof rack systems allow you to transport cargo on top of your vehicle that would otherwise take up a lot of room in the cabin. And with your gear stowed on top, there’s room for friends or more gear inside your vehicle. To allow a roof rack to be installed on such vehicles, Yakima designed the Q Tower crossbar supports. These towers rest on the roof on pads that won’t harm your vehicle’s finish, and they’re firmly attached to the door frames with custom, vehicle specific Q Clips.
But the secret to the Q Tower's fit is the 4-way movement of the die-cast metal ball and socket mechanism that attaches to the Q Clip. The Q in Q Tower stands for quadruple, and it's this 4-way, quadruple movement that enables the Q Tower to fit virtually any vehicle roof contour. You can be assured that Q Towers will fit perfectly and securely on your vehicle, with a quick and simple installation process. Constructed with a powder coated steel superstructure and glass reinforced nylon shell, Q Towers are designed to support Yakima round crossbars (not included). Q Towers can be locked to prevent theft with the purchase of optional SKS lock cores and keys.
