Excellent rating. I ordered replacement parts for a Thule gutter-mounted rack. The parts arrived within a couple of days and were exactly what I needed. I highly recommend etrailer.com for those looking for parts and equipment. Customer service-oriented company for sure. 275134

The head on this is not 22mm as advertised, it's actually 3/4" or ~19mm and more rounded than stock Thule. This means that the bolt will freely spin when placed into a Thule, in my case Land Rover, T-Slot. I made this work by cutting a slot in the top of the threads to use a screw driver to prevent it spinning while tightening. Otherwise great to have these available. 451485

Hard to imagine writing a review for a t-bolt, but here it is: the ordered t-bolt was delivered on time and in good shape! I will say having access to a t-bolt meant I didn't need to replace my entire bike rack when I swapped cars which required a new roof rack with a different t-slot dimension- 383829

I bought these bolts to attach my Thule ski rack to the crossbars on my 2015 XC60 Volvo. While slightly long, the bolts do work and I have had no problems with them or their attachment to the crossbars. I'm thankful I was able to find these bolts because I was getting absolutely no response from Thule. Thank you etrailer. 336735

This part works pretty well for me, my only comment is that the screw part (for lack of technicality) although longer, as I needed, is also thicker and will not fit the same hole-size the other gutter feet I had purchased (thinking they would be about the same). 251985

These bolts fit my old locking knobs and are plenty long, however the square end is not a tight fit for the feet to clamp lock setup. They twist when near tightness, hence I use locking pliers to seal the deal. A little more square beneath the head would fit feet/clamps better. 196903

New, non rusty bolts clean up the look of any rack. Great purchase. 59072

  • Height of Thule Gutter Feet for Old Square Load Bars
  • The Replacement Thule Gutter Foot - 8" High - QTY 1 # TH753-0781 is 8 inches high total. The clearance height will depend on the gutter in relation to the highest point of the roof of the vehicle it is attached to. You will also want the Replacement M8 T-Bolt for Thule Roof Rack Gutter Feet # 853-0782, the washer # 951-0820-20, the Replacement Locking Anti-Rattle Knob for Thule Apex Bike Racks and Rain Gutter Foot Packs - Qty 1 # 753-0073.

  • Installing Thule Gutter Feet on 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Top and Two Kayaks
  • The Thule Rapid Gutter Feet for AeroBlade Crossbars - 5" High - Qty 4 # TH300R are compatible with your 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (4 door) hard top. The feet need to be 20 inches apart on center. You can see in the attached photo that the front rail can be centered above the front doors if desired. The max capacity for this system is 165 lbs. If you don't already have crossbars, the 60 inch Wingbar Evo # TH711520 is a great option. You can also add locks to secure your rack using...

  • Will Thule M8 T-Bolt 853-0782 Fit a Thule Ladder Rack
  • The head for Thule T-bolt # 853-0782 is 0.7 inches square and 0.19 inches tall so it is the same as # 853-5715. The overall length is 2.21 inches, the threaded part makes up 2 inches of that. It has a diameter of 0.31 inches (8 millimeters).

  • Thule Aero Crossbar T-slot Dimensions

  • Track Nut Compatible with Lance Camper Roof Rails
  • Great question! I believe that TopLine is the OEM manufacturer for Lance's roof rails. Although there is no official industry standard size for slots on roof rails, most of them are very similar. It just makes sense to design the racks to be compatible with multiple crossbars and accessories. The Thule Track Nut, # 853-5417, that you mentioned is designed to work with Thule's M6 x 17 mm Bolt, # 924-0617-15, and washer, # 951061254. You'll also need a 4mm Hex Key like # 853-2430-02 to...

  • Can Yakima Kayak Carriers be Mounted to Thule AeroBlade T-Slots
  • On the Thule AeroBlade crossbars the upper part of the T-slot is 1/2 inch wide and the lower part is 3/4 inches wide. T-bolt # 853-0782 could work. The threaded part is 2 inches long and has a diameter of 8 millimeters. 3-wing knob # 753-0776 is an M8 and is a potential candidate for this use. But none of these parts have been tested together so I cannot say how well the Thule parts will work with the Yakima parts so it is an -at-your-own-risk type of situation.

  • T-bolt and Wing Knob Fit With Thule AeroBlade Channel
  • I tried it to make sure, and the t-bolt # 853-0782 will fit inside the groove on the top of the Thule AeroBlade bars. The knob # 753-0776 will also fit on the bolt. I have attached some pictures of the bolt in the groove with the knob on the bolt for you to see how they fit together. The bolt won't come out of the groove, but it doesn't fit tightly inside the channel.

  • What are the Dimensions of the Replacement T-Bolt for Thule Roof Rack Gutter Feet
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled 2 different T-Bolts. The first one I measured was # 853-0782 that you have referenced. The head is 0.7 inches square and 0.19 inches tall. The overall length is 2.21 inches, the threaded part makes up 2 inches of that. It has a diameter of 0.31 inches (8 millimeters). The other part I pulled was # 853-2040-04. The rectangular head is 0.39 inches by 0.78 inches and it is 0.12 inches tall. The overall length is 2 inches. The threaded part is 0.86...

  • Replacement Knob for Old Thule Rain Gutter Feet on a 1982 Jeep Wagoneer
  • All of the Thule Gutter Feet that I bring up, past and present, are using an M8 knob, # 753-0073. The matching bolt is # 853-0782. If the threads on your current set up are 8mm then the knob should work.

  • Square Head bolts and Rubber Anti Slip Pads Needed for a Thule 376 Work Truck
  • The Replacement T-Bolt, item # 853-0782, is an M-8 size square head bolt. Most of the bolts used on the Thule ladder racks use M-8 size bolts normally, but we do have a M6 x 12 mm Allen bolt for the Ladder Lift, item # 919-0612-54. This is used with the Replacement Square Nut, item # 853-7557. We also have a 1.5 x 22MM T-Bolt, item # 853-5648, that may be the item you are looking for. The Replacement Rubber Strip for Ladder Rack TH376, item # 853-3544-23, should be the correct part...

  • Is Whispbar T-Slot the Same Size as Other Brand Crossbars for Accessory Compatibility?
  • The T-Slots in your Whispbar crossbars will be the same size as other manufacturers, so you will be able to utilize top channel mounted accessories like the Inno Locker Watersport Carrier - Locking - Channel Mount - 1 Boat or 2 Boards # INXA445 for example. The Whispbar crossbars are very wide and actually make the wrap around applications far more difficult to find compatible accessories.

  • T-Bolt for Thule Roof Mounted Top Rack System
  • First of all, that's an awesome off-road trailer, thanks for the photo. As for the 60" Thule Roof Mounted Top Rack System # THTB60, it has tracks which we have measured before and found the inner track to be 0.8" wide and the top opening to be 0.5" wide. For a T-bolt you can use the Replacement M8 T-Bolt # 853-0782 which has a head that is 0.7" square and a 0.2" tall; the entire bolt has a length of 2-3/16".

  • Is there a Longer Bolt for Use with Thule Gutter Feet
  • Thule bolt # 853-0782 is an M8 bolt. We do have other Thule M8 bolts including # 915-0880-11 which is over 3 inches long. However it is a carriage bolt and may not work the best with the Thule gutter feet. This is the only bolt that has the right threads and is longer than the regular Gutter Feet bolt # 853-0782.

  • Adapting a Thule Roof Bike Carrier to Thule Xsporter Load Bars
  • For Thule T-bolt # 853-0782 the overall length is 2.21 inches, the threaded part makes up 2 inches of that. It has a diameter of 0.31 inches (8 millimeters). There may actually be a special kit to adapt your Thule bike carrier to the Xsporter load bars. I would need to know which Thule bike rack you have though. I have included a link to the adapters made for the Xsporter bars.
