I received this promptly and it was the perfect fit. Grateful to find a source for this product, and so cheap! I had been missing my fourth bracket for a year, and just zip tying the fourth corner of the cargo carrier to the luggage rack. NEedless to say, that was getting old. Note that while this was said to be for a Thule carrier, I actually am using it on a cargo carrier I got at Sears about 6 years ago, called the X-Cargo Sport 20. Description Item # 02872030000P Model # 90035P on the Sears website. 268010

I bought this along with "Replacement 3-Wing, Low M6 Hand Knob for Thule Roof Mounted Kayak Carriers - 753-0783" for my Mondial Car-Go 320. I simply had to drill new holes at 4" apart and now I will be able to install and remove the carrier with much more ease than the nuts and bolts I had to use before. Just had to do a little research on the sizing to make sure I go the correct parts. This should work great! 12990

Lori - It went great. They are so much easier to use than the brackets we previously had. Makes putting the carrier on and take it off much easier and takes half the time.

I looked all over to find replacement parts for an older, but still useful X-Cargo clam-shell roof top carrier. Places like another online retailer had the part, but at an extremely high cost. I will come back to etrailer over and over based on ease of use and price! 545395

These U-bolts are replacing the obnoxious mounting system that was provided with a model year 2015, X-Cargo Extreme, rooftop carrier. I was slightly concerned with the inside stud spacing of this item, however it worked perfect. The hole spacing on the plastic carrier, exterior bottom support steel plate, and interior steel hold-down plate, are all of a slightly larger diameter, allowing this item to slide in. The minimal resistance provided by the bolt rubbing the insides of the hardware, is just enough to keep the u-bolt in place while you tighten down the spinners inside the carrier. These bolts are being used on a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, fitted with Mopar's factory style, airplane wing shaped, cross bars. ( They're relatively thin, as a thicker dimension bar might run out of stud length on the U-bolt uprights. ) etrailer should be commended for providing their customers a cost effective route, for simplified mounting. 420743


Comments
An update on the etrailer u-bolts, for my x-cargo Thule style rooftop carrier. I have now used these replacement u-bolts multiple times, covering many thousands of miles. Theyre still working great! There are no issues with wear to the carrier or the Mopar aluminum cross bars, nor issues from rust or corrosion. They have been used on the beach in the ocean air, to the freezing North-East salt sprayed winter roads. Note: I did rub candle wax on the threaded studs to avoid freezing, in the cold My garage door height will not accommodate my vehicle with the rooftop mounted carrier, resulting in the carrier being taken on and off, quite a bit. That being noted, the threads on the u-bolt studs have held up well, with no cross threading or stripped areas. I would not hesitate to recommend this part to replace X-cargos terribly designed stock mounting system or another wide u-bolt design that has become damaged. Super cost effective alternative to other mounting systems!

Product working great ! Nice website, buying process was easy, and shipping was quick ! So happy to find this website for my hardware needs !!! Extremely happy customer. 877740

I ordered this u-bolt originally through USPS [nominal shipping] and the package arrived open and empty. I contacted etrailer and had the matter settled within 2 days. The item fits perfectly on my SportRack Aero XL. I gave this item 4 stars ONLY because the shipping costs more than that actual product AND it came opened and empty (not really etrailer's fault). 871441

I have a a SportRack Vista XL cargo box (SR7018). Misplaced one U-bolt from the securing hardware kit that came with my cargo box. Called SportRack and turns out they were acquired by Thule, so I spoke to Thule themselves. It was a comolete waste of time. However, etrailer.com was way more helpful, and they had exactly what I needed. Shipping was very reasonable. Got my U-bolt, and now I feel complete! I would do business with again. Thanks etrailer! 855797

Great product and service. I thought this would be a really hard part to replace without buying a whole new set of attachments but etrailer had exactly what I wanted and at a very reasonable price" I appreciate the opportunity to click on your link, but I don't feel comfortable doing that. 855680

I bought these to replace the ones on my old Thule sidekick. After leaving the original ones inside the carrier in storage they became so rusted I could no longer thread the wingnuts on. Fortunately Thule still makes these replacement parts and etrailer not only carries them, but shipped them the same day. I had the replacement parts with plenty of time to spare before my trip. I now store the hardware in my basement instead of the shed and they show no signs of rusting anytime soon a year later. 854864

Pretty inexpensive, it was exactly what I ordered and (for all intents and purposes) might as well have been made by Thule themselves. Fit our Thule, and the other part we ordered, perfectly. 824540
