Thule Replacement Hinge Installation

Video Transcript for Thule Accessories and Parts TH14936 Review

Today we're going to review part number TH14936. This is the replacement dual force strut hinge. This part will fit the Thule Evolution cargo box and the Thule Atlantis cargo box. This is a hinge that's attached to the cargo box, and the way it attaches is on the cargo box, on the bottom of the cargo box there will be a ball socket. This will snap onto the ball socket at the bottom and on the top lid of the cargo box will be another ball socket. This top part of hinge will snap onto that.

It is used when you open your cargo box. This is spring loaded so it will open. It has spring tension onto it. That should do it for part number H14936.

I swear this replacement hinge didn't exist anywhere on the internet until recently. Whatever the case, I was elated to find this part available at etrailer. Installing this hinge was a bit of a chore - it took a lot more pressure to pop the socket over the hinge posts. Don't laugh, but I actually crawled inside the topper to get a better angle on installing the hinge. That worked for me, at least. The hinge works perfectly, and my Evolution 1600 doesn't need a prop stick to hold it open anymore. 82747

I recently put our Thule cargo box on the roof of our Denali to head north for a week of skiing with the family. Unfortunately the lid lever broke which made opening and closing the box difficult. After a quick search of the internet, the only folks that could help me was etrailer.com. Even Thule was out of stock. The lever arrived a day later and we are having a great week of skiing with a fully functional Thule Box. Well done etrailer.com. 111640

We ordered this to replace a broken one on our Thule box, and we had been having trouble getting our local Thule dealer to help us with the part. Etrailer customer service was excellent, I was given immediate information on shipping, and follow up emails when it arrived. We received it quickly and I would definitely order from this company again! 106122

Hinge was exactly what was needed to replace a broken hinge on my Atlantis 1800 Thule. E-Trailer was the only place I could find this simple piece. Their site was easy to use, customer service and shipping was prompt and tracking identification was sent when package was in the mail. 105403

Installation on a late-model Thule Adventurer box was fairly straightforward. The original gas-assisted cylinders had stopped working, and needed something to replace them. They're not a perfect fit on the ball/socket, but it should do exactly what we need for quite a while. 128521

This hinge worked GREAT! It was quite difficult to pop onto the ball, however that means that it will be equally difficult to come back off, which is the goal. Product just as described. Thank you for your fast shipping and quality communication throughout. 110919

I needed, for a 15 year old Thule roof carrier, a replacement for a hinge that was a discontinued part. I got great advice on a hinge that would work as a substitute. The shipping and delivery were as fast as advertised, and the part worked perfectly. 92511

Excellent replacement for the worn out hinges on my Thule box. Somewhat stiff to install but I think this is a good thing as they are pressure fitted balls fitting into the socket on the hinge. Excellent service and shipping. Thanks 146167

Read review that the hitch would work with Sears 20-SV. Even asked the e-trailer pro and was told to buy two even though there was no right or left strut. Did not work and made closing lid impossible. Was a waste of money and time. 150937





Comments

On this particular part, the spring inside is stronger than the original equipment on the 20-SV. However, the arm length is the same, and functionality and mounting will be the same as well. It will require more input to close, as the spring is stronger and thus requires more force to collapse and allow the box to close. The TH14933 has a different spring and was for our smaller boxes, therefore it would be easier to close the box if that part is installed.

  • Installation of Thule Replacement Hinge # TH14936 on a Thule Ascent Cargo Box
  • The Thule Replacement Hinge, part # TH14936 is attached to the cargo box by snapping the round hole on the end of each hinge onto the ball sockets on the mounting brackets. I went out in our warehouse and opened a Thule cargo box and snapped the hinge off of the ball socket and back on and it did take some pressure to get it to snap off and on to the ball. To get it to go back on to the ball you might even need to tap it on with a hammer. I am including a link to a video review of the...

  • Replacement Hinge for a Sears Sport 20-SV Cargo Box
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and was informed that for the Sears branded Sport 20-SV cargo box you would need to use hinge # TH14936. My contact also stated that both hinges should be changed at the same time for best performance. I have linked a video review of the hinge for you. But we have recently been told that on that particular box you should use # TH14933 which has a spring with less tension making the box easier to close. Otherwise both hinges are the exact same size and shape.

  • Replacement Hinge for a Thule Classic Series Cargo Box
  • The difference between the Thule hinges or struts # TH14936 and # TH14933 is the spring tension. The shorter length boxes use the lighter spring strut, # TH14933. Since your box is 90 inches long, that would be a longer model and you would use # TH14936. All of the Thule Classic boxes used the same strut but the original is no longer available. That would be why the newer ones look different.

It looks nearly identical to the other strut but they have different dimensions.

  • Will the Thule Ascent 1500 Cargo Box Fit the Factory Roof Rack on a 2012 GMC Acadia
  • The Thule Ascent series of cargo boxes has been discontinued but I was able to find a 2012 application guide and found the answer. Thule did list the box as a fit to the factory crossbars on your 2012 GMC Acadia. You might want to check to see if the crossbars are adjustable on your roof rack. The current box that is closest to the Ascent 1500 that fits your Acadia is the Pulse XL # TH615. I have included a link to a video review for you.
