The Yakima Landing Pads
which are used in conjunction with Yakima SkyLine Towers and the older Yakima Control Towers are the base rack solution for many cars, vans and trucks with factory racks and track systems (or directly to roof fixed-points on certain vehicles). Landing Pads attach to factory rack tracks , replacing the factory rack, if it has one, and creates a dependable Yakima multi-purpose base rack solution. Yakima Landing Pads can also connect to Yakima permanent mount tracks, and also to pre-placed fixed attachment points on certain cars with no factory rack where the vehicle manufacturer has supplied mounting points for the Landing Pads. Yakima #6 Landing Pads will also permanently mount to fiberglass surfaces such as fiberglass truck caps, camper shells or tonneau covers etc. and Yakima #7 Landing Pads permanently mount to metal metal roofs that have no factory rack already. Yakima Landing Pads are sold as a pair (order 2 pairs of Landing Pads to fit all 4 Control Towers on a multi-purpose base rack) - except landing Pads 13 and 15, which are sold in complete sets of 4. Requires 2 Yakima cross bars (not included; see accessories below) and 4 Yakima Control Towers (not included; see accessories below). This is one component of a complete base rack system.

Most Landing Pads are sold as a pair, so you will have to order 2 pairs of Landing Pads to fit all 4 Control Towers on a multi-purpose base rack. However, some of the newer Landing Pads (LP12, LP13, LP15, LP16, LP17, LP18) are sold in sets of four, so for those you will only need to order one set to fit all 4 Control Towers.
This is one component of a complete base rack system. Also requires 4 Yakima Control Towers (not included; see accessories below) and 2 Yakima cross bars (not included).
Yakima Landing Pad Covers also included for providing a finished look when Control Tower roof rack system is removed and only Landing Pads are left on rooftop (Covers simply snap onto Landing Pads).
ORS Crew explains - Yakima has released the Landing Pad 13 (set of 4), specifically designed to convert the factory installed rack systems on 2012-2014 Subaru Outback wagon models over to the Control Towers system, creating a much more versatile car rack cross bars system. Likewise, the Landing Pad 12 (set of 4) converts 2010-2011 Subaru Outback factory roof rack systems, enabling installation of the Control Tower multi-purpose base rack system.
Musky asks - I have a Fleetwood tent trailer with factory roof tracks. Which landing pads do I need to order?
CRITTER3 responds - Use the Yakima LP1 Landing Pads for the Fleetwood Tent Trailer tracks on the roof. My Fleetwood Tent Trailer roof rack is the Yakama Control Tower system too. I love it!
J.J.M. asks - I have Yakima Control Towers and bars on the cap of my Dodge truck using the LP1 Landing Pads on Yakima Roof Tracks. I want to buy a set of Landing Pads for a 2010 Honda CR-V so I can then switch the Control Tower rack between the topper and CR-V. What Landing Pads do I need for the CRV?
ORS Crew answers - You will need the LP10 Landing Pads, which attach to the 2010 Honda CRV fixed rack attachment points on the rooftop.
