    Yak racks on Thule square bars

    As the title says, does it work?

    I've run the opposite, Thule racks on round Yakima bars. Have Thule feet and bars now (thanks Cracksnracks for the great service) and can get better deals on Yakima racks.

    depends on the product you are mounting...most things yes....older steelheads and some older accessories were round-bar specific.

    copperheads fit better on square bars than vipers...i do know this to be true.

    Should have clarified that I won't run anything that requires wheel removal, so it's frontloader/King Cobra/Etc.

    I often move my Yakima Lockjaw's from my car (Yakima round bars) to my wife's car (Thule rectangular bars). Just needed to get a set of universal clamps from Yakima (I think). They had little nubs that I punched out so they would grip the rectangular bar.

    I typically run Thule bars with Yak attachments. Highroller worked so does the sprocket Rocket and the Yak boxes.

    Yep, the King Cobra worked perfectly.

    Any Yakima attachment that mounts with these:

    will fit. They work with either the Yakima bars as they stand or will work with Thule or Inno (identical dimensions) by tearing out the little piece in the middle of the round hole.
