Video Transcript for Thule Roof Rack Review - 2015 Subaru Forester

Today on our 2015 Subaru Forester we're going to be test fitting the Thule Crossroads Roof Rack System using part numbers THLB50 and TH450. We already have our rear load bar installed on our roof rack so we're going to install our front bar. Before I do that, we want to go ahead and show you how to install the last foot pack. Pretty simple. It just slides over the square bar. Once you have that on there we can go ahead and install the end cap.

That's all there is to the installation. Now we're ready to go ahead and set it up onto the front part of our roof. One of the things we want to make sure of is that we want to make sure that our feet are going to be straight across from each other. To do this we can simply just take a measurement from the center of our front bar to the center of the rear bar. We're going to go ahead and set ours at right around 29 inches. Center on center.

Now we can go to the other side, make sure we get that same measurement. Again that's just going to ensure that our bars are parallel with one another and that our feet are in line. Now that we got it set, equal on both sides, next thing we want to do is make sure they have even bar overhang. They look pretty good. We can bring our strap around the bar fitting it back into the foot. Then we can take the included tool and we can go ahead and tighten that strap around. These foot packs have arrow indicators on them at this portion here.

We want to make sure that that arrow indicator is at the center of our side rail. We can go ahead and tighten down this side and get a nice secure fit. These straps are great to have. They're actually a rubber coated steel so they're going to be very strong, very durable and going to give you the peace of mind that your roof rack is going to stand up to whatever really you put it through. Here on this side, bring our strap around, fit it into the foot and then just repeat the same tightening process that we used on the other side. Great thing about this included tool is that when you're done with it, you can actually just slide it back into the foot pack.

It's also got spots on it that you can remove right here so you can install a lock core which would secure the roof rack to the vehicle simply by just using locks on each one. With everything tight and secure, that's going to do it for today's test fit of the Thule Crossroads Roof Rack System using part numbers THLB50 and TH450 on our 2015 Subaru Forester. .

Expert Answers about Roof RackDo you have a question about this Roof Rack?


  • Weight Capacity of Roof Rack on a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe Carrying Two Kayaks
  • My wife and I just bought a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe that has the factory rails that run front to back. The limit of those is 75 pounds just like on yours, and I remember thinking, wow, that is not very much. Adding cross bars will not increase the capacity of the rails even if the cross bars themselves might be able to carry more weight. Even if this is the case, you will still be limited to the 75 pounds. If you were to add the recommended cross bars, # Y00408, and the Towers, # Y00138,

  • What Roof Rack for 2014 Honda CR-V with Factory Side Rails Can Use 72-Inch Thule Square Load Bars
  • The width of your 2014 Honda CR-V measured from the outside edges of the two side mirrors is 71 inches. For safety reasons it is not recommended to use crossbars that are substantially wider than the roof line itself. If you were to mount your 72-inch Thule square load bars onto compatible rack feet the crossbars would extend out from each side of the roof enough to pose a potential hazard. The longest crossbars recommended for your CR-V are 50-inches but since it is possible to cut

  • Kayak Carriers for a 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon with Factory Roof Rack
  • The 100 pound capacity on the 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon most likely refers to the system as a whole. In all probability they took the lowest rated component in the system, either the roof, the side rails, or the crossbars, and went by that rating for the whole system. You may be able to find the capacity of each separate component in the owners manual or by contacting a dealership. But even if you were to add different crossbars like the Thule Load Bars, # THLB50, Thule still states

  • Will Thule Square Load Bars Fit a 2003 Honda Civic and Accept T-Slot Bike Rack
  • The Thule load bars can fit your Civic with the correct foot pack and fit kit, but the crossbars on this roof rack do not have the T-slots that accept the T-slot accessories. This roof rack uses square crossbars that will accept most clamp on roof rack accessories. If you are needing a roof rack that uses crossbars with T-slots I would recommend the Rhino Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack with Aero Crossbars, part # DA118B, and the Rhino Rack Custom DK Clamps, part # DK009. This roof rack will

  • Recommended Options For Carrying 4 Bikes On 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportsWagen
  • We do have some options for you to be able to carry 4 bikes on your 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, but due to the towing capacity of your vehicle they cannot be carried on a 4-bike hitch mounted carrier. You will want to check the owner's manual or with the dealership to see what the towing and tongue weight capacities are for your SportWagen. With the hitches that are available for your vehicle all being Class l, the maximum bikes you can carry on a hitch is 2. There are a few options

  • Recommendation for Kayak Carrier for 2010 Honda CR-V
  • I spoke with my contacts at Thule and Yakima and both said their kayak carriers max out at 75 pounds. Since you have an 84 pound kayak that is 14-1/2 feet long I recommend going with the Universal Foam Block Rooftop Kayak Carrier # Y04053. These are cost effective and come with bow and stern tie downs to secure the kayak to your vehicle. This carrier works with naked roofs so you will not need a roof rack. You will want to consult the owner's manual for your Honda CR-V to make sure

  • Rooftop Cargo Carrier for Use With Skis on 2010 Toyota Matrix With Naked roof
  • Cargo carriers come in several varieties, including waterproof soft fabric bags that can mount on a bare roof as well as cargo boxes. In order to install an enclosed cargo box you will first need to have a roof rack on your Matrix. All roof racks for your Matrix can be seen on the link provided. A great cost-effective option from Thule is their Traverse System consisting of parts # THLB50, # TH480 and # THKIT1512. I've linked an installation video for you. With a rack like this in place

  • Racks to Allow Carrying Lumber on a 2014 Jetta Sportwagon
  • The Thule Crossroads roof rack system you referenced, consisting of parts # THLB50 and # TH450, is a correct fit for the 2014 Jetta Sportwagen with factory installed rails that run front to back. Once installed this system's square steel crossbars will be 34-inches apart. A 4 x 8-foot sheet of plywood will tend to sag if supported only in its center as on this rack, especially once you add the essential ratchet straps. Although it is not an ideal setup, if you had a hitch on your

  • Roof Rack Feet and Fit Kit Only for Existing Crossbars on a 2013 Mazda CX-5
  • That all depends on the brand of bars that you have. If they are Thule 50 inch bars then for your 2013 Mazda CX-5 with a naked roof you would need foot pack # TH480 and Fit Kit # THKIT1721. Current pricing can be seen below. If you have a different brand of bars let me know what you have and I can determine the parts you will need. Thule is the only manufacturer than has exactly 50 inch bars for a naked roof 2013 Mazda CX-5. Other systems have longer or shorter bars depending on the system.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2012 GMC Terrain

  • Recommended Roof Rack Option for 2012 Toyota Prius V

  • Can Thule Traverse Roof Rack Be Purchased Without Crossbars
  • You can purchase a Thule Traverse roof rack system for your 1997 BMW 3-Series E36 sedan without the square crossbars, part # THLB50. You then will just need to order the foot pack and fit kit. The foot pack for your E36 sedan is part # TH480. The fit kit required depends on the version of the vehicle you have. If you have the 2-door you will use kit # THKIT1015. If you have the 3-door, 4-door or wagon you'll instead use fit kit # THKIT1014. The prices for the two required parts

  • Roof Rack to Carry Ladders on the Roof of a 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander ES with Side Rails
  • I will be happy to help and I think I have just the thing for you. Since you will be using the roof rack to carry ladders you will not need a fancy roof rack. I recommend a Thule square bar roof rack for your 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander ES. You will need load bars # THLB50, and Crossroad foot pack # TH450. Then you could add load stops, # TH503, to keep the ladders from sliding on the bars. Then just use some ratchet straps such as # 34413 and you'll be set! Be sure to consult the vehicle

  • The covers for the fixed points on your 2008 Mercedes Benz R320 will just pop off. If you are looking for the best roof rack possible for your vehicle that will be the quietest around and offer the least amount of gas mileage loss you would want the Thule Aeroblade system. This is a better rack that the MB rack and will cost considerably less. The roof rack consists of the Thule AeroBlade Aluminum Crossbars, # THARB47, the Podium Foot Pack, # TH460R, and the Fit Kit, # THKIT3038. For

This includes 50 inch square steel crossbars and the side rail foot pack to give you a sturdy roof rack system on your Focus.To order this system you will need part # THLB50 and part # TH450. The Thule Stacker, part # TH830 would work well with this roof rack system. This system attaches to the crossbars, and allows you to be able to carry up to 4 kayaks at one time. For additional

  • Are Slots On Roof Of 2002 Jaguar X-Type Sedan Used To Mount Roof Rack

It attaches to the door jambs of your car and they told me that it does not use the 4 places you referenced in your question. To order this kit you will need to order 3 different numbers. You would order part # THLB50, part # TH480, and part # THKIT1229. This will give you the 50 inch square steel load bars, the foot pack, and the kit that contains the custom-designed

If you do not have factory raised side rails you will need the following items, Thule Square Load Bars # THLB58, Thule Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack # TH480, Thule Roof-Rack Fit Kit for Traverse Foot Packs # THKIT1518.

  • Body Armor actually makes a product that we do not carry that would adapt the rack you have on your Wrangler to a Yakima rack. The part number is BA 5125. It requires you to use the following Yakima products: Yakima Control Towers # Y00212 LandingPad 6 for Yakima Control Towers # Y00226 To determine how long of a cross bar you would need I would measure the distance between the Body Armor rails. I attached a page that has all of the Yakima round bars available for you to check out

  • Does the Thule Crossroads Roof Rack for 2013 Toyota 4Runner Require Locks be Added
  • The Thule Crossroads Roof Rack for the 2013 Toyota 4Runner, consisting of parts # THLB58 and # TH450, is a correct fit for your 4Runner as long as it has factory installed side rails that run front to back. This rack system does not include locks, so to secure it to your 4Runner you will also need to purchase Thule's One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH544. if you have other Thule rack-mount accessories you can order a larger lock set like # TH596 to enable them all to be operated with

  • Roof Rack Cross Bar Recommendation for a 2005 Pontiac Montana SV6 with Factory Raised Rails
  • Yes, the Thule Crossroad Roof Mounted Roof Railing Foot Pack # TH450 would work well on your 2005 Pontiac Montana SV6, with factory raised rails that run front to back. Along with the raised rail foot pack you will need a set of 50 inch cross bars, # THLB50 I would recommend going with the Complete Crossroad Kit with 50 inch Long Bars and Locks, # TH45050, which includes locks to secure the bars to the side rails.

I already had an "older" Thule roof/bike rack, purchased for a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, then used on a 2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring (this was the roof rack with the "strapped-on to roof rails" feet, and the bike carriers with the cantilevered, front fork-secured, mechanism). My new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT does NOT have roof rails, thus the need for this new Thule package consisting of: 1) TH460 - Thule Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack for Square Load Bars, 2) THKIT3068 - Thule Fit Kit for Podium Syle Foot Pack and 3) THLB50 - Thule Square Load Bars - Steel - 50" - Qty 2. MY plan was to "re-use" the pair of "older" Thule bike carriers. Etrailer's online info was excellent. The installation videos (although not for this identical package on the same vehicle as mine - but the 2012 Honda CRV's roof-mounting system is very close to the Hyundai's) were even MORE excellent! The box arrived on-time. The components were all there, and undamaged. The installation instructions were clear and concise... even for these 67 year-old eyes/mind! My "older" Thule bike carriers fit PERFECTLY... the new load bars are identical to my old ones (the only reason I needed new ones was I'd "cut down" the old ones when I moved the rack from the Grand Cherokee to the Elantra Touring, and now they were ~2" too short!!!). We tow the car behind our motorhome and we've found the Thule roof-mounted products to be excellent for our needs... holding up to three bikes on the top of our "dinghy". Dealing with the folks at Etrailer.com was a very pleasant experience! 100578

Got our order for this roof rack system and CRV fit kit in a timely manner and even had the etrailer team contact us both when there was a small delay on our fit kit coming in as well as when everything actually shipped out! Assembly was super easy and straight forward. The husband worked on prepping the car while I assembled the bars to the towers and then we worked together to affix everything to the car. All in all, it took us maybe 30 minutes to complete installation. Doing it alone might take 45 and is very doable. My only gripe would be the actual footers on the fit kit. The plastic pieces looked like they were supposed to snap in somewhere but just wiggled around in the mounting gaps until we actually tightened them down. They also seemed to be a bit of an awkward fit on the existing plastic rails, but again, once tightened look fine. I was slightly worried they would crack when tightening just because the plastic isn't very thick, but no problems so far! We're only one week after installation now, but love the look of them on the car, haven't noticed any extra noise while driving, and are excited for the first kayak trip this weekend to actually use them! 133284

Sorry for the slow response. We only installed the crossbars this passed weekend. They were very easy to install, as soon as I took the instructions away from my brother. I think they look very nice on the car, but his wife doesn't like them, so we'll be taking them off and putting them on every time we go kayaking. I have my opinions about that situation which I'll keep to myself. I've attached pics of both a front and a back view. 139637

Great service provided here are etrailer.com. I am very happy with my order. I ordered the product on Monday at like 11:00AM and chose the free 5-7 day shipping. They gave me 3-5 day shipping for free and had the product shipped out that day!!! I got it on Thursday with everything I order. There were no issues with anything. They emailed me like 1 hour after the product arrived to make sure everything was good. I would definitely buy here again, and refer my friends to etrailer.com. 25272

ETrailer web site made product selection simple, delivery was even faster than expected, and they kept me informed of order progress via e-mail from start to finish. Thule roof rack system fit perfectly and was easy to assemble and install. Haven't used Rightline cargo bag yet, but construction and materials appear to be robust and well-designed. Overall an outstanding experience. 29728

These roof rack bars are easy to use and put on/take off the car - I got them for a Subaru Outback. My wife can easily install them, too. (We like to take them off when we don't need them b/c they cause a low whistling sort of sound when you drive.) The delivery was really quick. I am totally satisfield with etrailer and the product I ordered. 52204

Product arrived very quickly and was in excellent condition. I was easily able to follow the instructions and put it on my Subaru Crosstrek. One thing I would recommend is to purchase the locks along with the bars and footpads. I thought the footpads would come with locks, but they do not, so I will have to make another purchase. 140330
