Eezi-Awn K9 Roof Rack System for Thule or Yakima Feet
$1,100.00 USD - $1,650.00 USD
If you have a vehicle or truck shell with either Thule or Yakima mounting track on it, and would like to add a K9 roof rack system to it, this is the system for you. Eezi-Awn has developed a new series of track mount feet that are compatible with most track systems on the market. These feet attach directly to the bottom of any of the K9 roof rack platforms, so you have plenty of size options.
The base of each track mount foot has two 8mm slotted holes in them for attaching to a track. Thule and Yakima utilize 6mm threaded plates in their track. So Eezi-Awn supplies 6mm stainless button head cap screws with unique insulating spacers to correctly fill that void between screw and slot. What you end up with is one of the most robust rack solutions you can create for your Thule and Yakima track.

Capacity of the K9 roof rack system is broken into two measurements, static weight and dynamic weight. Static is when the vehicle is stationary. Dynamic is when the vehicle is in motion. We have not tested the K9 racks on vehicles to the point of roof failure. We can tell you what we have tested ourselves effectively. A dynamic capacity in the range of 500 pounds is possible. A static capacity of 1000 pounds is possible. An example of static load increase would be adding people in the tent on the roof. Please understand these capacities are on vehicles that have modified suspensions designed to manage this amount of weight. They are not a warrantied or guaranteed capacity. Your load capacity will vary.
Installation of this rack system can be done by one person in approximately 1hour. Help lifting the platform on the roof would be appreciated. You start by installing the K9 Track Mount Feet in your Thule or Yakima track, followed by attaching the platform on top of the feet. Tighten it all in place, and you are good to go. Mounting plates for either track are not included. Written instructions are also provided with each rack system.
