Yakima Railgrab and Bike Trays Installed on 2016 Trail

Used my 66" cross bars and old Yakima Viper bike trays. I believe the Yakima fit guide says to use the small "claws" for the install, but I had an issue of the rail grab sliding up our sloped stock rack with the small claw, which grabs in the slot of the rail.

Was going to sell my Yakima Bedrock kit (for Tacoma bed), but was delighted to remember it came with SKS lock cores, which I was able to pull out and use on the rail grab assemblies.

I ended up using the medium claws, which grabbed the bottom of the stock rails and kept the assembly from sliding up, allowing greater contact. Overall feels like a solid install. I can move the truck quite a bit pulling on the crossbars without moving the rail grab assembly.

Megawarrior basket planned.

I bought the railgrab as well. Good stuff, Yakima. I thought I had some long bars! You still have room for a couple of kayaks AND another bike.

Thanks. If the 48" megawarrior width is right, and my 44" measurement between outside of factory rails, the megawarrior will spill over the factory rails a couple inches on each side. I wanted to allow for this with the bike trays.
