Re: Yakima Landing Pad 5 fits Taurus X roof rails perfectly

If the 24" spread is enough for your application, then I agree Yakima RailGrab works fine, and is easier to mount.

But I needed more distance (i.e. 36" to 48" inch spread) for my contracting work (i.e. carry lumber, electrical conduit, water pipes, ladders).
