Thule AeroBlade Traverse Roof Rack Installation - 2014 Kia Soul

Today on our 2014 Kia Soul we'll be test fitting the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System using part numbers THARB53, TH480R, and THKIT1524. We'll begin out test fit by placing the front load bar onto the front of our roof. With the front bar in position, we can measure ten and a half inches from the front part of the glass to the first part of our foot pad. We'll make this measurement on both the passenger and driver's side of the vehicle, which will insure the front bar is perpendicular to the roof of our Kia. Once we have the front bar in position, we can use the included tensioning tool to tighten down the silver bolt on the inside of the feet which will bring the clips up tightly around the roof line. We're going to alternate sides when tightening it down so the bar doesn't favor one side of the vehicle. With this done, we'll go ahead and place the rear bar onto the rear of our roof and measure the load bar spread. The load bar spread is the measurement from the center of the front load bar to the center of the rear load bar and is important when choosing roof rack accessories.

  • Parts Needed to Add a Thule Roof Rack to a 2008 Honda Fit

  • Difference Between Rhino-Rack Vortex And Thule Aeroblade Roof Racks For 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • Both the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero and Thule AeroBlade roof rack systems have very nice features and would work well for your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe. Both systems are designed to work on vehicles that have the flush mounted rail system. As far as the design or advantages or disadvantages of the Rhino-Rack system versus the Thule system, it is very difficult to say it has features that are better than the Thule. They both have very similar crossbar designs and features but the Rhino-Rack has crossbar

  • Do the Locks on the Rola Roof Rack part # 59766 Lock the Rack to the Vehicle
  • You are correct. It's an unfortunate design, but yes the Rola rack could be removed from your vehicle regardless if it was locked or not if someone had the right tools and knew what they were doing (most wouldn't). The locks being visible will deter most from attempting to steal the rack and it will keep roof rack accessories on the bars which I would think would more what people would target.

  • What is the Capacity of Yakima 48 Inch Roof Rack Crossbars
  • The 48 inch Yakima crossbars, # Y00408, have a weight capacity of 165 pounds no matter which mounting system you are using. Different applications have different ratings though. It sounds like you are not using the system on a vehicle roof. Whatever you are using it for, if you can determine the capacity of the mounting surface that will be beneficial as you do not want to exceed it. Always go by the lowest rating.

  • Are Crossbars Required to Carry a Rooftop Carrier on a 2014 Subaru Forester
  • All rooftop cargo boxes and cargo baskets require crossbars that run side to side on the vehicle roof. There are some rooftop cargo bags that sit directly on the vehicle roof and do not require crossbars. The 2014 Subaru Forester came with three different roof options. Your Forester could have a bare roof, factory raised side rails that run front to back or a factory roof rack with crossbars. If your Forester has a factory roof rack with crossbars, then you will not need additional crossbars

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendations for 2014 Lexus RX450H Hybrid SUV Without Crossbars
  • A good first step is a check of your owners manual to confirm the vehicle's roof weight bearing capacity. You will want to be certain that the total combined weight of the roof rack, the kayak carriers, and the two kayaks remains within the vehicle weight capacity. If your RX450H has raised factory side rails that run front-to-back on the vehicle's roof, then I recommend the very quiet Thule AeroBlade system consisting of parts # THARB47 and # TH450R. AeroBlade load bars offer the lowest wind

  • Would 65 inch Vortex Rhino Rack Crossbars work on the Roof of a 2002 Ford Econoline Van
  • The 65 inch long crossbars part # RRVA165-2 that you referenced would be long enough for the roof of your 2002 Ford Econoline and would work well with the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Legs # RL150S10 that you also referenced. You would need to order a quantity of two of the # RL150S10 since they are sold in pairs.

  • Roof Rack for the Truck Bed of a 1966 Chevy C10 Pickup Truck

  • Can a Cargo Bag Fit Between the Crossbars on a 2013 Hyundai Veloster with Rola Roof Rack
  • For Rola roof rack # 59726 on your 2013 Hyundai Veloster the bar spread (center to center distance between the bars) is 20 inches. This is a narrow bar spread and none of the cargo bags are small enough ti fit between the bars. But they can rest on the bars. The bag may sag in the middle but as long as the bag is secured to the crossbars and the roof is protected using protective pad # RL100650, you won't have any problems. I have included a link to all of the roof mount cargo bags we carry.

The crossbars measure 3/4 inch by 3/4 inch on this roof rack system. This system comes with locks that secure the rack to your car's roof, and includes 2 keys.

  • Will a Rola Roof Rack for a 2010 Toyota Matrix Fit a 2014 Toyota Matrix
  • The Toyota Matrix was basically the same vehicle as the Pontiac Vibe. The last model year for the Pontiac Vibe was 2010 and so Rola stopped fitting both vehicles. So technically I cannot say that a Rola rack would fit a 2014 Matrix. But if you take a different rack, for example Whispbar rack # WB-S16, the fit kit for the fixed mounting points, # WB-K453, fits a 2010 and a 2014 Toyota Matrix. It stands to reason then that the Rola kits for the 2010 Matrix will also fit the 2014. But since
