The Yakima Rack and Roll Safety Pole is a 40 in. tall bright yellow fiberglass Safety Pole that attaches to your crossbar or trailer frame. The Yakima Rack and Roll Safety Pole makes your trailer more visible at all times. Especially useful for backing up.

Essential product! This should be considered a necessary component in my opinion. In fact, I think Yakima should include one with the trailer. Because the trailer is small and sits low, it is very difficult to see when backing up, particularly if it's empty. The pole is also helpful in preventing others from backing into your trailer (e.g., when in parking lots). The only disadvantage is that it can make loading kayaks slightly (and only very slightly) more complicated because you have to pass one end around the pole. One final note: I would recommend you mount the pole in the trailer's track instead of with the clip - much more secure this way.
Great help when trailer is sitting empty in parking lot for others to see before they back into the low profile Yakima
