bought a new mt. bike and needed these bolts to made my bike rack work. you safe the day, thanks for the quick service. 227958



- 853-208909
by:

I bought these for use on my Thule-DeWalt truck rack. They will work, but the bolt is smaller diameter than the orignials. These may be made for the smaller Thule track racks. This was the only place I could find the bolt heads to fit inside the track - so Thanks etrailer for carrying them, and especially for your fast service. Etrailer also carries a stainless bolt that looks similar; I'll check out the diamter of this bolt to see if its larger. 118541

This is pretty much the universal "attach stuff to your base bars" bolt. I got these as a replacement bolts for my peloton bike rack and for my thule snowboard rack. They can also be used to attach things that are not thule, in most cases. Etrailer was great to work with. Great for: Aeroblades Audi OEM roof rack (produced by thule) Peloton Bike Rack bolts 4 top Universal Ski/snowboard rack bolts 63235

Used to fit a Thule Pulltop 726 to Factory MB GLK roof bars (made by Thule) using channel mounting. The bolts were slightly too long and interfered with the pulltop functionality. I used a couple of metal washers for spacers to ensure a proper fit and to retain the functionality of the Pulltop. 116374


Comments

Thank you for the comment! We do offer different lengths of the T-Bolts from different Xadapt kits, such as from the Xadapt2, it sounds like a shorter T-Bolt would have prevented the need for the washers.

Great product and exactly what I was looking for. Used this product to mount my Thule 593 Wheel On to my Yakima Whispbar on my 2013 Volkswagen Jetta GLI. Very simple setup and probably took about a total of ten minutes. I used this product along with the low profile wing nut that is already supplied with the Thule 593 Wheel On to maintain a clean look with no bolts or adapters visible. This setup will help with those looking for sun roof / moon roof clearance with low profile bars such as Whispbars and Aerobars! 114733

Works great still 690349



- 853-208909

These fit perfectly in my Audi-branded, Thule-made roof rack. Weirdly the bolts for my BMW-branded, Thule-made roof rack were just slightly too wide. I wish the threaded portion of the bolt were a little longer, I'm using them in a 20-ish year old Thule Weekender box and the plastic strap holders that serve as the washers are pretty thick. These are long enough to work but another 1/8th - 1/4 inch would make them a bit easier to work with. 686745

by:

A small order given great service is a sign of a well run organization. Great communication, order tracking and prompt delivery and follow up. With good pricing and fair shipping. I'm sure everyone gets the same service; I am a small but loyal customer. 665972

Good part 663400



- 853-208909

Works with the T-Tracks well, and much more solidly connected than other footings. Use with surf racks to replace the strap feet. Now it is lower profile, less wind noise, and firmer connection. It is also fairly easy to remove with a ratchet, and is still locked to the roof when the rack is locked shut. 650316



- 853-208909
by:

this is the proper bolt to utilize within the track of the Thule AeroBlades so that one can mount universal brackets to mount an ARB awning. Add a couple of washers and a nylox nut to complete this task. Thanks to eTrailer for all their help and support. 629076



- 853-208909
by:

I used this to replace the strap feet for my Thule double decker surf/paddle board carrier so that they sit flush in my AeroBlade T-Track. Is much sturdier, quieter, and looks much better. I needed to cut the bolt shorter to allow the strap to fit inside the device, but was easy enough to do. 606245



- 853-208909
by:

Exactly what I needed to fit old accessories to my aerobars. I had a set of old Thule ski racks that I wanted to mount directly to the bars and not use the adapter "clamshell style" clamps. I slid these bolts into the T slot on the aerobars, put the threaded end through the bottom of the ski rack, then bolted them up with some washers and locknuts. I now have a lower profile ski rack, and they are more rigidly mounted to the crossbars. I would suggest these bolts for anyone looking to mount non-standard things to your aerobars with the T slot. Just be sure to get the right bolts. I believe the threads are standard M6 threads. 602542



- 853-208909
by:

The t bolts are well constructed but intended for something other than my thule basket as they are too long. The good news is a hacksaw resolves the issue quickly. As always etrailer has been exceptional with service, price and communication. 570703

Wonderful service and a part that I couldn't find elsewhere at a reasonable price. I am mounting a Rhino Foxwing on my van and needed these for the mounting modifications I was making. They are perfect. Thank you!!! 523656

I intend to use this for my own custom design kayak rack. So, it would have been nice to know in advance what the thread count/size before I ordered it. Other than that, it is exactly as advertised, and appears to be anodized or something to make it rust resistant.....nice bonus. 522340



- 853-208909

I used these fasteners to attach the third brake light to a 1999 BMW M Coupe. The square head fit perfectly. Once washers and bolts were secure, I used a Dremel tool to cut the bolt down. I found the bolt when using the phrase "BWM square head bolt" searching the Internet. Fast delivery and cost-effective because the OEM part had to be shipped from Germany to the States at higher cost per bolt, higher shipping charges, and much longer wait time. 509263

I ordered these to replace the pieces that had been lost when the original brackets broke. They fit perfectly. 502983

The square head bolt fit perfectly on the wind fairing. Make sure to buy the replacement 3-wing hand knob for Thule bike, board and ski carriers (used to secure it), because it comes separate. 238916

Can't beat this! I bought a used roof rack that someone completely ripped me off on with tons of missing parts. I couldn't find these anywhere, or at least if I did, they were astronomically expensive. I was more than happy to find these OEM parts so affordable and shipped so quickly, even with economy shipping! Thanks guys! 194260

Stock up on these T-bolts, not just for fairings. You can use them on any load bars with a slot that will take T-bolts. Fits my OEM Audi load bars perfectly. I use them for a Thule Big Mouth bike rack. No need to order the Xadapt 2 kit. This is a bargain at $1.00 apiece. 139332

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Thule Replacement Square Head Bolt Measurements
  • I called Thule and they do not have an official measurement spec available for this part. Because the reported measurement results are not consistent, I went to our warehouse and took a 9 piece sampling and measured the Thule Replacement Square Head Bolt # 853-208909 with a digital caliper. The chart attached shows the averages of my measurements. Since these are mass produced hardware pieces there is typically an acceptable variance that is allowed with each piece. (I do not have...

  • Dimensions of Square Head Bolt in Thule XADAPT9 Load Bar Adapter
  • I went out to the warehouse to find the measurements you are asking for on the square head bolt in the Thule XADAPT9 Kit # THXADAPT9. The square head bolt is available individually as # 853-208909. The diameter of the square head bolt in the # THXADAPT9 kit is approximately 0.23 inches. The bolt length measures 1 inch long. Including the head of the bolt I found the overall length to be 1.19 inches (1-3/16 inches). The bolt head measures 0.75 inches x 0.75 inches (3/4 inches...

  • Can the T-Slot in Thule AeroBlade Crossbars be Used to Attach Any Accessory
  • Thule, unlike Yakima, does not have a special device that attaches to the bars and accepts numerous accessories. Basically, it depends on what you want to fit to the AeroBlade bars. Thule makes several adapters, called Xadapt? where the question mark would be a number depending on which adapter it was. If you can tell me what you are wanting to attach to the AeroBlade bars I can determine what Xadapt you will need. If it is a non-Thule item then it may not fit. Or if you modified...

  • M6 Barrel Nut Recommendation for Use with T-Slot Bolt part # 853-208909
  • The threads on the Replacement Square Head Bolt for Thule Fairings, # 853-208909, is an M6 bolt. The part # 853-0446 is an M6 barrel nut so it should work as well.

The bolt threaded in the nut correctly so it is an M6 bolt and knob. Knob # 753-0745, also accepts an M6 bolt. I cannot guarantee that the bolt will work with anything other than a Thule product. The bolt head is about 3/4 inches square and the head is 1/8 inch thick. Overall, the length of the bolt is...

  • Replacement T-Bolts for Yakima # Y08107 RACKandRoll Trailer
  • It sounds as if you're speaking of the T-bolts. We offer the Yakima replacements as part # Y8880184, which includes 4 nuts, bolts and washers. Thule doesn't offer a nut compatible with the # 853-208909 bolt, as it's meant to be used with a knob.

  • Replacement T-Bolt And Bracket For THXADPT9 Load Bar Adapter
  • We do have the replacement t-bolt you are looking for. You will need part # 853-208909. These are sold individually so you will need to change the quantity if you wish to buy more than one bolt. The bracket is sold as a separate item as well. For the bracket you need part # 853-5513.

  • How to Use the Thule SnowPack in a Track/Channel Crossbar
  • If I am understanding you correctly, you have the Thule SnowPack Ski and Snowboard Carrier part # TH7326 and are wanting to switch from wraparound mounts on square crossbars to track mounts on aero crossbars. If that is the case then you will need four of part # 853-208909 and four of part # 1500052617. The bolt is 1" long which will be sufficient so long as you are using the above extension.
