    2013 Yakima High Roller Base Plate covers

    Just installed this on the roof however the base plate seems to become unclipped and fall off at times . Any solutions or advice would be appreciated.

    I haven't had any issues with my <2013 version, but I think they only changed the color this year.

    Maybe check that that the thumbwheels are oriented to not stick out past the base-plate... maybe a point in the thumbwheel is keeping the cover from going all the way on? Otherwise, just make sure they're snapped all the way on.

    The thumbwheels are clear I 'm thinking after some use that this is actually the way they designed it when upright the baseplate is leveraged into the forward position it seems secure and when flat held down by the pressure on the back, the clips are not the workhorse...seems flimsy but I'm sure someone smarter than I designed it. Thanks for the reply
