First off, etrailer was the only company that gave me any hope of finding a key to fit a Karrite roof box from the early '90s. Thule told me they didn't support the old stuff from a company they acquired, but etrailer responded that there was a good chance the Thule N key of the same number would fit the Karrite lock with a 3 digit code. They were right and I'm back in business. The latches for the explorer box were an exact fit as well. The explorer spring hinges and Adventurer box support plates required some modification to work, but I expected that going in. The only thing that doesn't seem to work is the Thule change key that I added to meet the minimum order for free shipping. The spring hinges are a bit weak for the larger box which likes to distort the lid when it is being opened or closed. They work well at holding the lid open, but I bent one of the arms while closing the lid. At some point I'll reinforce the arms where they are a bit thin near the pivot. Etrailer helped make the old box functional so I didn't have to spend 10x as much for a new one.

These were exactly what I need for our Sears X-Cargo Carrier. Sears Parts Direct has two listings for this part# (03810). I'm glad I purchased from etrailer.com at half the price. The parts shipped on the same day my order was placed and arrived in great shape. The installation was straight forward and very easy to do.

Needed the mounting hardware, the old hardware was rusted beyond use. Oh well a trip to the hardware store. Otherwise part matches old hinge.



- SR03810
by:

I purchased this product and used it on a Sears SPORT 15 CAV. It took a trip to the hardware store to gets nuts and bolts and a little drilling out to remove the other hinges but this replaced the original broken hinge extremely well. The lid stays open even better than the original! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has a broken hinge in the Sears SPORT carriers.

They weren't long enough wasn't very clear if they were long enough or not but I bought them ended up throwing them in the trash they were long enough I needed something longer but didn't seem to be available or it was easy enough to find whatever it was nah I just threw him out

Thank you for your review. These spring hinges are made specifically to replace the springs on the SportRack Explorer, Skyline XL or Sears X-cargo boxes. If you let me know which cargo box you are needing a hinge replacement for I am happy to help try to find the correct replacement part.

Seem to fit well. I They are a little shorter than the ones I'm replacing but this was the closest fit i could find for my older sears xcargo. Also could have come with new hardware but also not a big deal.

Product arrived in great condition (no damage) amd quickly!

I have an old version of the Sears X-Cargo and one of the hinges broke. These replacement hinges did the trick and was fairly easy to replace old with new. My only complaint is that the new hinges don't allow the carrier to open quite as wide as it did before, but they did the trick and I will be able to work around it.

I tried to order the replacement hinge from Sears since it was their car top carrier, and I had no luck with them. I found Etrailer online and they were great. Order was processed quickly and the price was reasonable.

Functions as OEM. I ordered a pair so both sides have the same tension. I recommended for X-Cargo replacements. I would suggest etrailer sell them as a pair, with a little discount, since the springs tend to "relax" over time. Thanks and I'm back in business now!

So grateful I was able to find replacement parts for my old whopper topper roof box. Fits great! Easy to install. One draw back, it doesn't come with scews or washers. One on mine was stripped and I had to take apart the broken bars to salvage that one before I could install it. Glad to be able to open the box fully again for easy loading and unloading!

Exactly what I ordered. Service and shipping from etrailer was awesome. I ordered late on Saturday night and was notified Sunday that my items were shipped. Just awesome!

I bought a rooftop carrier for my car and did not realize the hinges had to be attached every time you opened the carrier. (Did not buy the carrier from here). This just did not work for me. These hinges are a life saver and make the carrier useable. I had to drill holes to make them work but it was worth it. I would buy from here again. 5 star in my book.



- SR03810
by:

Of course, my review is just installing the item. You do have to reuse the nuts, bolts and washers from the hinge you are replacing. I am sure you could order them. Looks to be better quality than the one I replaced and this was a 17 year old carrier. I would recommend and will recommend ordering this part for replacing a broken hinge. Good price.

This was a great transaction!!! It was looking around the Net for this part because I didn't want to throw out our Roof Turtle :) Found the part at a great price and it was delivered within 5 days... Not like the weeks it takes for a cheep part coming from China. I recommend etrailer.com to everyone who is looking for a part. Thank You etrailer

After a year of using the hinge for the turtle it is still as good as new!

Works great. I damaged the springs on my carrier. I was going to buy A new cargo box untill I realized the new one would cost three hundred or more. Just remember to order two of them, they dont come in pairs. I made a second order but it was well worth it. .

The hinge worked as good or better than the original part that broke after 15+ years of use.

This is the second time I needed a replacement part for my old Sears Xcargo roof top carrier and etrailer came through for me both times. I couldn't believe how easy it was to find on the etrailer web page. The price of the part and the shipping cost were reasonable and it arrived quickly . Etrailer runs a great business.



- SR03810
by:

The hinge I purchased for my turtle top arrived quickly and as described. However, I am a bit disappointment in the craftsmanship of the item. After a week of use, the plastic around the nut cracked quite substantially. I contacted the seller and a new one was sent out immediately. I am very satisfied with the customer service at etrailer, but I am a bit leery concerning the durability of the hinge.



- SR03810
by:

I ordered a pair of these hinges hoping to be able to make them work in replacing the existing hinges in my X-cargo. I was able to make them work well :) I am happy with the outcome of this project. (similarly constructed hinges for the larger opening of the X-cargo would have been very nice :) )

My husband was very pleased with the replacement part for our cargo!! Ian was extremely helpful!! We will definitely order from etrailer again!! Thanks you!!

This product worked to open and close an older Sears X-Cargo lid that had manual hinges. Only one extra hole on either side needed to be drilled. What a difference it makes!

  • Replacement Parts for Karrite Voyager Cargo Box
    For starters, the vast majority of cargo boxes and replacement mounting hardware for cargo boxes will not work on factory crossbars for a Nissan Xterra as they are very large in comparison to the standard crossbar sizes that these cargo boxes and replacement mounting hardware are designed for. Unfortunately, I was not able to find any mounting hardware we offer that will work with the Xterra crossbars. I recommend taking a trip to your local hardware store as this will be your best option.

    Some of our replacement parts for SportRack or Thule cargo boxes will fit with some Karrite boxes but we never actually carried the Karrite boxes so I'd need to see a picture of the hinge you are talking about to see if we have anything that might work.

  • Mounting Hardware and Hinge for Karrite Voyager
    We do not have exact replacement parts for the Karrite Voyager so you'll need to put somethings together that are replacements for other boxes. For the hinge the Replacement Spring Hinge for SportRack Explorer Cargo Box # SR03810 will likely work, but because it's not designed to be used with the Karrite I cannot absolutely guarantee a fit. As for the locks and mounting the Karrite, you can't use ratchet straps; I recommend the Replacement Mounting Kit for Thule Sidekick Cargo Box TH04958...

    Thule manufactured the X Cargo boxes for Sears. According to my Thule representative, the actual metal hinges are part # SR03396, which are sold individually. The spring loaded lifter is the part # SR03810 you referenced. I've edited a diagram for you that shows where these parts are located on the cargo box.
