Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyer beware After buying and installing this on my car I realized that you can't lock the fork mount onto the rack without a bike on it so anyone can just unscrew it and take it. If you don't want it to disappear you have to remove it when you're not hauling your bike. I did find a way to lock the fork mount by buying a coupler lock at a trailer hitch store. The rear piece can easily be locked onto the bars with an accessory lock housing. With this extra purchase I like the bike mount because it's small, lightweight, fairly inexpensive (other than the extra coupler lock) and takes up little space on the rack. It holds the bike very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap, solid performer These little mounts are great because when you use them on the Yakima round bars, you have lots of room for a variety of other mounts (surfboard, kayak, ladders/construction tools, cargo baskets, etc.) without having whole trays cluttering up your roof's usable space. They've held up well to being parked in very harsh sunlight (New Mexico, Arizona, California, Mexico, etc.) without any noticable reduction in their capabilities.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for Short Roofs If your roof is shorter don't even try this product. Our car is a 2000 Jetta. The rear wheel of my mtn bike(Specialized Epic Comp smaller frame) extend behind the rear cross bar after the front fork is locked in. The tiny 'cup' of this bike rack does nothing to stabilize the rear wheel no matter how hard I tightened the attachment. The 'cup' spun down, the rear wheels bounced on the roof (I retightend 3x in a 45 minute drive), the pedals spun and then scratched the paint off the roof. All the bouncing caused the FRONT towers to almost come unhooked from the roof. Not worth the savings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fork mount you can buy Honestly, I can't think of any reason to buy any of Yakima's other fork mounts. This mount is The cheapest mount they make, works with disk brakes, has a lockable skewer, and is the easiest to install or remove. The split-tray design allows me to throw the roof racks on the car by myself in 20 seconds, and when they're not in use, they take up no more space in the closet than a pair of skis. Can't recommend them enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bike rack I've purchased Incredibly convenient and easy-to-install, a very good bike rack especially for the price. I am love with this rack!! Loading the bike is really easy, it has a fully-adjustable clamp on the front and back sections of the rack so it will fit essentially any crossbars (mine are Audi factory bars), and it can quickly adjust to fit either side of the car. Bike feels very secure once loaded and I have had no issues. Only took me about 10 minutes from opening the box to locking my bike on and driving away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from inexpensive, easy, secure The Boa holds both my mountain bikes (disk brakes are not a problem) and my road bikes with a secure, quick release style fork mount. The only disadvantage is that the small back wheel tray does not stabilize the bike as well as a full tray (like on the copperhead, viper, or sprocket)would, but at [$], can you really complain?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, clean and inexpensive If your vehicle has enough bar spread, and you want a fork mount, this is the easiest to use, and can be left on the crossbars when you take them off your car, unlike full tray mounts.

can i get this product with the universal mount for factory roof rails for 2012 Toyota Highlander?

Asked by: GRL
The Boa will unfortunately not work with your vehicle's factory cross bars and the Yakima Universal Mounts. If you have only the siderails and are planning to add the Yakima RailGrab Towers along with the Yakima Round Bars, the Boa will work.
