Yakima says my Forklift rack fits the Crosstrek factory aero bars. The front clamp does, the rear clamp does not. I think this is due to how the aero bar sits on the side rails. It has a higher 'angle of attack' than the front bar due to the curvature of the side rails. I moved the bar fore and aft, but it didn't change enough to work.

Front Clamp...no issues:


Rear Clamp. Tightest setting. Rear portion of lower arm contacts the bar and does not allow the clamp to close:


Rear Clamp. Medium setting. About a 4mm gap. No contact with bar:


Rear Clamp. Loosest setting. Even larger gap. No contact with bar:


Rear Clamp. Detached from rack, and fully clamped down on the aero bar. Note the difference in angle between the clamp and rack:


Temporary fix, inner tube + zip tie:

Hmmm, never had that issue on my Outback and the Forklift...

Anyone have the same issue?
