The Yakima BaseClips are specifically engineered for a vehicle and has protective rubber pads which attach to the base of the BaseLine Towers and rest directly on the roof. Custom formed metal brackets with a powder-coat finish provides maximum strength and durability.

This means the pitch of the bar and the toe angle of the towers can all be adjusted to better match the contour a vehicle's roofline.
