The Yakima Control Towers Car Rack System has been discontinued and replaced with the Yakima SkyLine Car Rack System.

You need a rack system that’s as strong and multi-talented as you are. And for many vehicles, that system is the Yakima Control Tower complete roof rack. With four versatile Control Towers, four vehicle-specific landing pads, and a pair of round cross bars, the Control Tower base rack system mounts to factory tracks, fixed roof points, and permanent installs on surfaces like camper shells and truck caps, and includes everything you’ll need to create a cross bar platform for attaching gear carriers. With the fastest installation—as easy as opening and closing the tower, landing pads that include covers to stow handily on the rooftop even when the rack isn’t attached, and your choice of cross bar size, the Control Tower system boasts convenience, ease of use, and versatility for any rack configuration. A set of 4 SKS locks will lock the rack onto the vehicle for added security. The Control Towers, Landing Pads, and cross bars included here are alternately available as a half-pack set or as individual components.

Looking for leveling solution
November 24, 2016
I put this on the cap of my F 150 and it looks great and functions well for short boards. I am looking for a solution when I put my paddle board on it. The cap is slanted so I am looking for a way to make the rack level. If I have longer boards they angle downward into the roof of the cab.
Nice looking Heavier duty than expected Locks in place
Need heights adjustment

Solid and Looks GREAT

High quality, durable, and solid materials. The fit and finish of the towers is above and beyond other racks that are available, so you really get your moneys worth. Make sure you take complete stock of what you order. I made the mistake of not ordering locks for my control towers. Locks are not necessary unless you are looking for added security. The pad install process was easy and the install of the towers is a breeze.
Build Quality Finish Installation Easy on and easy off once everything has been adjusted to fit the width of your vehicle.
Locks are an extra cost, but not necessary.

Great look for F-150 Truck (custom)
January 4, 2016
Installed this Yakima control towers on my Ford F-150 (customized). above my tonneau cover. I'm able to use the bed of the truck to trasport additional equipment. and the towers to transport my Bicycle. I was able to use the same idea posted on ORS website. I'm very happy with the product and truck looks nice.

This rack system is great. I was thinking about buying a factory rack for my Porsche, but I wanted something that I can use with all my cars. This was prefect.
Simple to install Good price Can be used with my other cars
