The Yakima Bolt Top Loader is a permanently mounted bracket that allows 1A Raingutter Towers and Q Towers (Q Clip 41) to be used in situations where the car lacks a raingutter. The Bolt Top Loader comes with all the contents you should need including silicone that lets you seal up the holes. Yakima recommends that upon drilling your 5/16 inch hole that you coat the bare metal with fingernail polish or touch up paint, this is to prevent rusting. The Yakima Bolt Top Loader is not a hard installation but, a professional is a good idea if you are not power tool savvy.
