Arrived in a timely manner. Easy, straight forward install. Used on 2014 Chevy Equinox. Unlike the older Thule clips that wrapped the roof rack factory cross bar this bracket "sandwich" the cross bar. To keep the ski rack upright just alternate tightening the screws front and then back. I reused the original wing nuts with no problem. Should easily transfer in the future to another vehicle. 451154

It performed flawlessly for the season. Removal for storage was easy.

Did the job and saved me buying a new rack. My ski rack attachment was for the standard Thule bar. This kit allowed me to use the rack on my Kia Soul crossbar. 341469

I am very happy to have "discovered" this Thule adapter clamp; I was trying to attach a ladder pro to my 4th generation 4runner standard roofbar and this (along with some square- nuts) worked like a charm. Very versatile product, great price and quick shipping from etrailer. Thanks guys 520353

This adaptor allows me to use the Subaru factory rack w/o having to buy a new, expensive Thule ski rack. This adaptor fits the wider Subaru roof rack nicely allowing one to use the original Thule ski rack. The parts arrived promptly. 245585

Decent kit. Good universal fit for many vehicles with cross bars I’m guessing. Comes with everything you need except the wing nuts. You are suposto reuse the old ones I guess but mine were all rusted and cracked. I was only able to reuse 2 of the 4. As the others were broken. They should just be included in the kit. Way to try and save a buck Thule. Just order the wing nuts as well and save yourself the headache. 472611

Thanks for the review Joe. If you are needing the replacement wing knob those are available as part # 753-1897-03
Replacement Thule 2-Wing Knob
$1.05
. Thule sells those as individual parts, so we do as well since they do work with multiple carriers.

Product works exactly as intended. Easy to install and take off. Planning on putting my carriers back on shortly and don’t anticipate any problems. 728340

They don't really fit the shape of the factory rack on a 2017 Crosstrek very well. The ski racks end up tilting backwards. They still hold skis, they just look a little off, like they have been run into something. 725082

It was a pleasure to order from etrailer.com. Communication was great, product arrived quickly and was exactly what I needed. I needed the Mounting Kit For Thule Flat Top Rooftop Ski/snowboard Racks That I used to mount my fishing rod rack to my cross bars. I would highly recommend them! They fit perfectly! 672192

A friend gave me a Thule ski rack with no hardware. This kit had everything I needed except for the "round nuts" (853-5439) and "wing knobs" (753-1897-03) both sold here on this site. Easy to install and worked great! I love that Etrailer made this a simple one stop shop for me! 602823

I was able to use these to fit a ski/snowboard rack to my Thule square bars. The product works great and the rack was very secure while driving at highway speeds. 597417

Thule needs to make this available as a locking unit. I can lock my skis, but not the rack to the car. WHY!?!? 596230

by:

This kit allowed me to reuse the Thule ski rack I bought years ago for my old car with the factory roof rails on my Rav4. It was pretty easy to attach the ski holders to the rails. I the rack all last season and it worked wonderfully. I was really happy that I didn't need to buy a whole new rack system! 594753

Was able to ‘salvage’ use of my old Thule ski racks with this kit which now fits both old and new design crossbars. 594125

With Williams help in Customer Service I was able to order a new Mounting kit for my old Thule ski/snowboard racks so that they would fit on my new Thule crossbars. After sending some pictures to him he contacted Thule in order to confirm my purchase would work. This purchase has saved me several hundred dollars so I will not have to buy a new rack this season. I am very pleased with etrailer!! 591443

Best price with shipping. Even economy shipping was fast! 589807



- 7533998
by:

Exactly what I needed and was looking for, good price and quick delievery. Only thing is if you dont already have the carriage bolt with a wing nut to attach these to the snowboard attachment or whatever you might have you will need those as well. 583686



- 7533998
by:

Products looks to be well made. Taking the rack on and off is a little time consuming and requires a special wrench. A simpler way to do this would be nice, The unit is a little pricey for what you get. 582712

Very high quality nylon(?) clamps and stainless steel bolts: both tamper-proof torx and hex, including wrenches. The clamps fit fine on my 2018 Honda CR-V roof rack cross bars. My one gripe is that the kit doesn't include rubber pads to protect the vinyl coating on the cross bars. I am using pieces of an old bicycle tube (700x25c) which fit perfectly. 563000

by:

Very impressed. This kit worked on a much older Thule ski rack which I had bought at a garage sale and was not on the compatible model #'s listed. In addition, the provided bolts use a special secure pattern for which you must use the included allen wrench (somewhat like locking lug nuts on car wheels). I installed this on a 2004 Honda Pilot with OEM cross bars that are approx 2.75" wide and 1" in height. Hope that helps someone and good luck. 481377

Arrived on time, exactly what was described and works perfectly. Couldn't ask for anything else! 480329



- 7533998
by:

I received a diagram how to assemble the kit and there were two items shown in the assembly pictures that were not included in the kit. One was a bushing spacer and the other a tamper proof round nut. It was not indicated that these items are sold separately. However, I was able to assemble the rack without these pieces by reusing the original nuts that came with the ski rack and not using the spacers at all. It's very sturdy and easy to assemble. 480061

Fits perfectly. Saved bunch of money not buying the new ski rack. 478780

The correct item was shipped super fast and at a decent price. Thumbs up to the vendor etrailer! Product does exactly what it says. Easy install. Not really much else you can say. Good job Thule on helping me get more life out of my older ski rack on my stock Subaru roof rack. 477032

Had to file holes on upper piece to get screws thru. Other than that went smoothly. 476360

by:

Tried to get an adapter for my old Thule ski racks to my new Thule Aero cross bars and didn't find anything good working with a local Thule dealer, who was quite knowledgeable. These do work well and were about 30% of the cost that we had found with a cumbersome product at the dealer...and they are from Thule! 476338



- 7533998
by:

The product arrived ahead of estimated delivery date. Unfortunately, this was not the case with the contents of the kit. I received a diagram how to assemble the kit and there were two items shown how to assemble that were not included in the kit. One was a bushing spacer and the other a tamper proof round nut. It was not indicated that "these items are sold seperately. (I had to go to ACE hardware to adapt the kit). I called Thule and they were rather surprised about this, but made no offer to send those items, only to refer this up the line. I think Thule has to much market share and I will look for companies that wish to compete for my future purchases. Peter Gebhardt 470663

The replacement brackets for my Thule ski rack were perfect. Easy to install. Durable (stronger and more secure than the original brackets!) Fairly priced. 470602


Comments

The brackets are still great. I just installed the rack again about a month ago to get ready for the ski season and it was easy and super secure.

I was having some difficulty mounting an older Thule ski rack to a new vehicle, and stumbled upon etrailer.com. Found exactly what I needed (at a great price), and the brackets were shipped the same afternoon as the order was placed. Great follow up by George, and in general an outstanding customer experience. Great job etrailer.com! 469734

by:

Rather disappointed with etrailer.com I returned an unopened item and etrailer.com would only refund 50% of the purchase price. 50 flipping percent of the purchase price, what a joke! I would have been better off keeping the item and listing on ebay or craigslist to sell on my own. We are not talking big money here, it is principal and the lack of integrity that just gets you hot. 457870

Parts worked great on the stock bars of my ‘10 Honda Pilot. 454771
