Thule Sidekick Roof Mounted Cargo Carrier Review

Video Transcript for Thule Sidekick Roof Mounted Cargo Carrier Review

Today we are going to show you the Thule Sidekick roof mounted cargo carrier, part number TH682. The Sidekick features 8 cubic feet of storage space and only weighs 16 pounds. The lid opens from the passenger side and there are two locks, front and back, to secure the lid closed. The contour of the lid and the foam gasket help the box seal up and keep moisture out. Inside, the spring assisted hinges help you open the lid. Inside the box, you will find pre-drilled mounting holes for our U-bolt mounts. Thule includes a set of vinyl stickers to cover the unused mounting holes. This will help keep moisture out of the box. The Sidekick uses a U-bolt mounting system. The U-bolts go on the underside of your cross bar and come up through the bottom of your Sidekick. On the inside, the plate fits over the top of the U-bolts and the wing nuts secure the cargo box on to your crossbars. It is designed to fit most aftermarket and factory installed roof racks. Once we have all of the U-bolts in place and tightened down, we can go ahead and load the cargo into the Sidekick. And that does it for the Thule Sidekick, part number TH682.

Like many others, I found assembly to be...challenging. Something I found helpful was to attach the end supports first (the parts that prop the lid up when opened), BEFORE attaching the lid to the side hinges. The supports hold the lid up and allow some travel to better align holes for the hinges. Oh, I still had to get my legs inside the box for leverage and enlist the help of my 11 year-old son, but at least the lid didn't keep falling on my head while I did it! Contrary to other reviews I've read all over the web, I did not find the lid or base to be flimsy. When assembled, the carrier felt fairly solid. Mounting is incredibly easy using the factory rails from Subaru. Regarding size, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of room in the interior, as well as the wide opening when loading. We're mounting this on top of our 2009 Subaru Outback and it is making a significant impact on the amount of stuff that usually winds up piled in the kids' laps during trips. Overall a great product, a fantastic value, and the perfect solution to short or mid-range vacations. I would definitely recommend the Thule Sidekick to friends and might even offer to help with assembly...maybe.107822

Received product on date as indicated. Was disappointed that product was not in inventory when ordered??? Assemble was easy. Hinge installation need definitely two people. Screws for hinges in package not the same as in guide sheet, thus little gray capes for outside don't fit!!!88152

Best price I found on this item. Very fast shipping. The Thule Sidekick is a good box for the price. It seems a little flimsy at first but is sturdy when monted to my roof racks. Have taken it on a couple of test runs and it did great. Easy to put together with a helper. I have a 2011 Honda Element and it lines up perfectly with the factory roof racks. Great for the occasional user. Sure beats the almost $500 price tag on the Honda factory box. 24074

I once had an old Yakima Cargo Box (white on top & gray bottom) & I backed out of my car port w/its lid open~~of course, I totaled it! So, I chose the small Thule Cargo Box & was disappointed in its construction. 1). The box was very flexible due to its light construction. 2). The box comes w/two locks. Couldn't get the rear lock to catch because either the lock-arm was too short or the catch mechanism was riveted too low. Anyway my Yakima was of sturdy plastic which I had for a number or years. It held about 15 cubic feet of gear instead of the 8 that this product holds. I wouldn't recommend this product to any of my friends.100199
