Was exactly what I needed to replace the old hardware for mounting my ski box on my rack.


I haven’t installed the parts yet but they match exactly The parts from my original rooftop carrier. Everything looks great can’t wait to try it out this spring


etrailer is the best. The drawing on your site really helped (attached). I can now use my 25 yr old Thule Adventurer box on my 2019 Subaru Outback. This is the 2nd etrailer product I’ve purchased and installed, the other being a hitch for my 2012 Honda Fit. The video also was key to a successful install. Keep up the great work :0)


I have not mounted the box yet but this hardware looks like it will do a great job.



still works as expected


excellent kit, all the parts needed to replace all the parts and cheaper than just buying the missing parts


After a year, I can recall the great price, rapid/accurate technical advice and speedy delivery. The adapter kit installed easily. The mounts have been in constant use with my Thule Adventurer Roof Top Cargo Box.

I’m researching a trailer hitch currently for a summer road trip. is early favorite based in past performance.


I'm pleased with this purchase, the replacement brackets work as intended. Allowing me to mount my Thule Adventurer 650 Cargo Box to the stock roof rack on my 2000 Forester. With that said its worth mentioning that I did have to drill new holes in my cargo box. This was due to the internal parts of the mounts hardware (plastic brackets shown) being physically wider then the old metal plates. Not a major issue assuming you have a drill handy... If you don't, keep in mind you may need one.


I have a 2003 Acura MDX and a outdated Thule carrier. I found e-trailer on line looking for a solution. My cross bars aren't adjustable or removable. The problem was that my cross bars are too wide to accommodate my Thule Revolution's hardware. I reached out to etrailer and they had the solution. So I was informed the by buying this new hardware from another model of the Thule collection with a 3 1/2 inch with would do the trick. I wa also told that I would have to drill 4 new holes. Just like that and 4 little holes later. I'm ready to clean the clutter and go to the beach with the use of all my seats. Thanks etrailer. I already mad another purchase which I'll be leaving a review.
For future potential customers. Customer service was great with fast delivery and nicely priced items.

I needed some replacement hardware for my old Thule Mountaineer cargo box, and this kit was perfect. The kit was in stock, and everything fits just right.


This mountingadapter was really made for the Thule 'Adventurer' cargo box. However, with a quick adjustment (drilled 8 new holes) it also worked great on my older Thule 'Weekender' cargo box.

The quick release design works great and I would recommend it for anyone that needs to attach any box to their cargo rack.


Parts purchased to refurbish the roof mounting system for my Thule box were a perfect match. Very pleased.

Thank you.


I bought a used Thule Adventurer that needed the hardware for installation on my square Thule bars.
This is the set you need and it was easy to install. What made it easy was the video that they provide in ‘Product Details’ on their site.

I installed this in less than an hour thanks to the video!


This kit works. Eventually. The tie down bars aren't consistent in dimensions or shape, so they couldn't align with the bolt holes on their own. I had to modify things a bit, and even then the bolts can't remain straight. Consequently the "quick mount" aspect is moot. Overall my DIY solution was better. Oh well.


Our Cascade cargo carrier hardware was aging and I have been searching all over for replacements until I found this kit. It has everything you need for the best price. Great service and fast shipping. Highly recommend.


Great customer service and they came through with quicker shipping so I'd have the parts I needed. Very much appreciate working with


I have a Tuhle Ski carrier that is 25 years old. This is the second time I've replaced the mounting brackets. The were easy to find on your website and your communication after I placed the order was outstanding.


Great replacement kit ! Does what it's intended to do..


Order arrived promptly. All parts were present. We were not able to find these items anywhere else. And the price was very reasonable considering that this will allow us to continue to use our Thule.


Perfect replacment for th eused cargo box we picked up. With this hardware and a little cleaning it was like getting a whole new roof-top storage box. Would recommend!


This hardware kit was perfect for our Thule Cargo Box. The kit was complete and everything has work great! etrailer has been a great resource for us!

One year later, our Thule box parts are working great! Thanks!


Fast delivery, good follow-up from the seller. No directions included in the box, but plenty of resources could be found online. Seems like a secure way to fit my old Thule cargo carrier to a new Thule rack, and it was pretty easy to put it all together.



One year later, this system works perfectly and feels very secure. Glad I found this product.


We were thrilled to find replacement parts for our older Thule box. Etrailer has great customer service and wonderful reps to answer your questions. We heartily recommend doing business with these folks, great price, great product, great customer service.



One year out and all is great!


Replaced the attachment parts of my Thule Cascade roof box perfectly. Was happy to find it all in one kit! Not sure what the sheet of black circle stickers were for. It didn’t come with directions so I had to go by what I could see with the old parts.

The 15 Round stickers for covering mounting holes in the box, helps keep out debris.


Great company
