    What landing pad do I need for Yakima?

    So, I recently installed some Yakima Rack Tracks on my topper the other day. A few years ago a friend of mine gave me the Yakima rack set up that you see in the pics. I am not sure if they are the Control Tower model or perhaps another one.
    What landing pads do I need? They make a ton of different ones so I am really confused. Any experts here that can help? Are these Control Towers?

    Note: The front ones have the clamps on them from when I had them on my old car. The clamps will be taken off.What landing pad do I need for Yakima?-zoom.jpgWhat landing pad do I need for Yakima?-image-2-.jpgWhat landing pad do I need for Yakima?-image.jpg

    Those are Q-towers, and will not work with the tracks. You need control towers and 2 sets of Landing Pad 1..

    Yakima and Thule are really good at gouching your eyeballs out.

    As said above, you need Control Towers with the 2 pairs of Landing pad 1s. The Q tower is for naked roofs and used with Q clips. Hard to tell but it looks like you have the current generation of Q tower so the resale could be decent. Find someone with used Control towers and try to swap.
    Another option would be the older RailRider 1 towers. These come with the appropriate base for the tracks. Control towers are easier to use though.
