Sturdy Supports

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have these on my 2012 Scion XD and they work perfectly and are super secure. I have used these in conjunction with the Thule Canyon XT roof rack and the two pair perfectly together. The only advice I have on this is to make sure you measure where they go on the bar exactly, if you are off by just a bit it is nearly impossible to get the towers to ratchet down correctly.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love how I can use all my Yakima accessories with them. No need to get new systems. I can still use my round bars, hully rollers, ski & bike racks for the price of the q towers. Yakima does it right!!!

A solid base

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Yakima Q Towers provide a very solid foundation to your rack system. They attach easily when paired with the correct Q clips and lock the load bars tightly. I have not seen any slippage on the roof nor have I had to adjust these after the initial installation.

Tried and true

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The q-tower system by Yakima has been around for a long time. Simple and easy to work with. Does it look as sleak and cool as some others? Nope, but functions like a champ. I've purchased several sets for several different cars. Be sure to by your locks when you buy these.

Yakima Q Tower

Now any car in the caravan can sport a Yakima roof rack. The Q Tower features 4-way movement for a solid fit no matter how extreme the curvature of your roof.

Great for cars without factor bars!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Just got these for the Civic, they work great! I also got the Q clips to attach them to the car and am using a set of old round cross bars that have been sitting in the garage for several years. The set-up is perfect! We attach a cargo box and ski rack to them, not complaints so far. I wish this pair came with locks, so someone can't steal your whole set-up, but no complaints other than that.

Good option for cars w/out factory rails

    I recently put together and installed the Q-tower rack system on my Subaru Legacy sedan, which did not have the factory rack mounting points in the roof rails like most newer Subarus. I definitely prefer a rack setup that uses built in mounting points rather than the Q-towers, but they are a perfectly good option when the former are not available. Installation was straightforward other than being a bit annoying running back and forth to get the spacing and tension balanced for each bar. No complaints since getting them installed, they've been solid and quiet even with ski racks and skis on highway trips. Note that this set of Q-towers includes 4 end caps for the round bars, so no need to buy those separately.

    sturdy roof rack base

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These towers are a great economical way to mount a roof rack on your car with a bare roof. They're sturdy and easy to install when you need the rack on and easy to take off for when you're wanting to save your gas mileage.

    Does the Yakima Q Towers come with Roof Rack Feet for your Naked Roof?

    They come with pads, stickers to protect the paint, but not with the Q-clips that have to be specific to your vehicle.

    Solid roof system

      I really like the round bar of the Yakima racks because there are a lot of after-market companies that make compatible accessories and it allows certain accessories like the kayak and front bike wheel holders to be pushed down when not in use. We do not have the faring so it is a little loud but not loud enough to get the faring.

      Tamara, check out the Yakima website and select Fit My Car link. This will walk you through each component and accessory for your particular vehicle.

      Hi, Bought a camper shell; has the tower set on top! have removed them; they came off well! the key will not open the pins to place back on; what should I consider?

      If you don't have the key to the lock or it isn't working, you can contact Yakima directly. If you give them the part # of the rack, they should be able to send you a replacement key that will work on it.

      Will the feet of this product (Yakima Q Towers) fit my 2002 honda civic 4 door?

      Yes, if you select the correct feet. Yakima's website has a great tool that helps you figure out what you need.

      Solid Towers

        The Q Towers are solid and hold Yakima round load bars securely. You can install these and forget about them until the next time you need to move your rack. Be sure to pick up the correct Q Clips for your vehicle and some locks.

        Great so far, just make sure you follow the instructions and do the correct measurements. This is the only rack that will fit a 2010 VW Tiguan. Looks Great, couldn't be happier. Get the Fairing it will save you lots of wind noise.

        Do I need a fit kit to put Q towers on a 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid (naked roof)?

        You need two sets of Q Clips. One Q5 and one Q35.

        dose this q tower work with a 2000 toyota tundra?

        If you have a naked roof, the Q Towers will work with your Tundra - either 2dr or 4dr, it will work on both.
