The Boxter is lightweight and has a very aerodynamic design that will help reduce wind noise and increase gas mileage. The integrated quick grip system allows you to easily attach the box to your crossbars without having to use any tools or u-bolts. The Boxter features a built in secure lock, one on either side of the box. The lock cylinders feature a safety mechanism that will only allow the key to be removed once the box it properly locked.

The Boxter includes a custom fit light cover that protects the finish of the box while in storage. The Thule Boxter is made in the USA and features a lifetime warranty. To make sure the Boxter will fit your vehicle you should measure the spread of the crossbars. The Boxter requires a minimum of 20-5/8 inches to a maximum of 36-3/4 inches from the center of the front cross bar to the center of the rear cross bar. On the side of the box is where you are going to find your lock. Again, if the box is locked you can remove your key, but if it is unlocked you cannot pull the key out. To secure the box to the crossbars we are going to open it up and operate the clamps from inside the box. To adjust the clamps, take the turn knob and open it up. Lift the box above the crossbar and slide the clamp over the crossbar. Set it back down, and tighten the knob to close the clamp. Repeat the same process for the other clamps. 1:58
On the edge of the box, above the lock on either side is a handle which makes a convenient place for you to grab the box to open it. Inside the box, you will find the dual hinge that can be opened from either side. There is also a sturdy pull handle on either side, so you can get a good hold of the lid when you pull it down to close it. Inside the box are three sets of tie down anchors that you can use the included strap with to tie your cargo down inside the box. there you have it for the Thule Boxter part number TH611.
