I have had three (3) failures of this lifter hinge. In all cases, the lifter's thin-cheap plastic body, (containing the spring assembly) "exploded" apart into two separate pieces. Inconvenient...Yes...but the replacements were originally around $xx.xx (pre-COVID). When I ordered the same replacement lifter in the Fall of 2020, they had over DOUBLED in price!!!! Additionally, the suppliers, (both Thule and etrailer), estimated delivery as late as April 2021!!! Of course not very happy and definitely disappointed. Needing a lifter for my XXL Cargo Box, I actually designed a sheet metal "reinforcement sleeve" for my broken lifter, just to get me by. It works great! (The spring assembly produces a lot of force, so I strongly don't recommend anybody modifying the lifter after it fails). etrailer was very good about periodic e-mail updates on my order. Recently, I was notified by etrailer that there was a replacement lifter with a different part number which was available for immediate shipping. Still needing a new "proper" lifter, I nervously agreed to the new part. They arrived within the week, (I had ordered two (2) so I always had a spare). To my surprise, (apparently) Thule must have "agreed" that the lifter body was horribly deficient by design. The new lifter body is actually reinforced with a heavier rubberized plastic sleeve, which I assume will reduce some of the torque and various stresses on the original plastic body, thereby reducing the failure rate. I'm still not happy about the price doubling, (thinking that prices were inflated due to COVID demand); however if the price increase is due to a better/improved product, the price increase is definitely easier to accept. If the new and improved lifter has the lifespan of the cargo box itself, I would be happy to give it (5) Five Stars! I'll let you know. Thanks!

  • Replacement Lid Lifter Hinge For Thule XT XXL Cargo Box
    I confirmed with Thule that the correct replacement lid lifter hinge for your Thule Motion XT XXL Rooftop Cargo Box # TH629906 is # 1401495600. I went ahead and attached a photo to show where this hinge is located on the cargo box so you can verify that this is the hinge you are needing replaced. There are not any replacement hinges for the rear-most hinges as those are connected to the cargo box and you would need to replace the whole carrier if those are broken.

  • Replacement Hinge For Thule Cargo Boxes
    This can happen in a couple different ways, over time the hinges get weak especially when you don't open the whole lid as even as possible. Make sure whenever you are opening the lid, that it's opening evenly on both sides and do not force it up or down. These hinges are spring loaded and when in the proper orientation, they pop open with ease. Also, whenever you are loading up your cargo, make sure that non of your cargo is overlapping the hinges. That may also result in a broken hinge...
