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

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

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

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

I have the Yakima Jetstream crossbars and just needed some M6 t-slot bolts, but did not want to buy the $20 Yakima Item # Y03098 with the extra plastic brackets. These Thule bolts fit the T-slot in the Yakima Jetstream bars perfectly. 896093

Fits my 2004 GTI OEM VW roof rack perfectly. I purchased these to mount custom and retrofitted accessories safely and securely. I know, for sure, that these t-bolts will fit all OEM VW roof racks from (At least) 1993-2021, regardless of car model. 873507

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

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

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

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 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

  • 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...

  • What is the Thread Pattern and Size of Replacement Square Head Bolt for Thule Fairings
    Yes, the threads on the Replacement Square Head Bolt for Thule Fairings, # 853-208909, is an M6 bolt. I pulled the bolt and another M6 item, wing nut # 753-0783, and tested them together. The bolt threaded in the nut correctly so it is 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 about 1-1/8 inches.

  • Replacement T-Track Bolt For Thule European Roof Cargo Basket
    I spoke with my contact at Thule and they said from the description of the T-track and bolts you said you need, they are probably on European components and not available here in the US. The square head bolt you referenced, part # 853-208909, is designed to fit Thule fairings. The head on the bolt measures 13/16 inch x 13/16 inch and is 3/16 inch thick. The overall length of the bolt is 1-3/16 inches. I cannot say if this bolt would work for you or not. My contact at Thule was unable...

  • Does the Thule Bolt 853-0782 Have Same Head Dimensions as 853-208909
    The # 853-0782 that you referenced would have the same dimensions as the part # 853-208909 that you currently have except it would be longer like you said you needed. The head of the # 853-0782 measures 0.7 inches square and 0.19 inches tall like what you currently have.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Which Bolt is Compatible with the Thule 3 Wing Knob # 753-0745

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.

  • 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...

  • 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.
