The Yakima RidgeClips are specifically engineered to have no drilling, scratching, or damage to your car in any way. The kit is engineered to make strong attachment and a smooth transition from the vehicle's roof line to the RidgeLine Tower. The kit contains metal brackets, panels, fasteners and rubber gaskets as illustrated and detailed in the product manual.
The Yakima RidgeLine Towers architecture uses a bi-axial DropHook clip motion to secure the clip to the roof and a BarBed design to adapt to the curved styling of modern vehicle roof lines. 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.
The backbone of the rack, Yakima Roundbars are strong, vinyl coated, galvanized steel tubing of .085" wall thickness with a 1-1/8 inch outer diameter. The load capacity varies by bar width and weight capacity, see below.
