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.


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

I have a 2003 Acura MDX and a outdated Thule carrier.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'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.

Product was exactly what I needed for a 12 yr old Thule box. Easy buying experience and surprisingly fast delivery considering Covid, supply chain issues, etc.

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. etrailer.com is early favorite based in past performance.

They were very helpful in identifying the right package for my needs, which was to have new hardware for my old Thule Classic box that would fit the integrated rack for our Audi Q5. The package arrived yesterday and it is installed and it works perfectly. Etrailer rocks!

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!

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.

My girlfriend bought a used Thule on Facebook Marketplace. The sellers did not have the accessories to mount it. They told us they would find them and let us know. Weeks later, no response. We searched online for hours and found Etrailer had what we needed. They had the right accessories for what we needed and had them delivered on time, before our camping trip. Thank you for doing it right the first time and giving prompt delivery. You were a lifesaver.

The parts fit perfectly and have extended the life of my roof carrier tremendously! And arrived quikcly!

I had not used my Thule Mountaineer in over 16 years, taking a vacation where it is needed and cant find the hardware. I was not relishing having to cobble something together to be able to use the Thule. So was pleasantly surprised that etrailer carried the hardware kit and ordered immediately. It came today, complete and I'm ready to mount the Thule for vacation...thank you



- TH04997

Very good product. Exactly what I needed. My old mounting hardware had rusted away and made it difficult to put the Thule Cargo Box on to the car. The Quick mount hardware was easy to install (approx 15-20 mins).

by:

Works excellent. Easy to install and I used all summer last year.

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.



- TH04997
by:

Part of the problem is my car, the rack system has very little room for adjustment. I had to drill new holes in the box which was easy enough but there is no way to be precise with the new hole and so the fit of the attachment has a little bind when you get the whole system to the top of the car. It works, but it's a chore.

Great news, arrived sooner then expected (was delayed…then it arrived. Best price!

In 2001 I bought a Thule Frontier cargo box and I have been using it ever since. The box has given great service over hundreds of thousands of miles, but I recently bought a 2015 Chevy Equinox and needed to adapt the old box to the more modern roof rails of my car, using my 2009 era Thule Aero Bars. >With the help of eTrailer's great web site I was able to make sure that the product they offered would fit properly (putting an old box on a newer car is a challenge). I ordered the parts and they arrived promptly. Everything I needed was in the kit. The rusty bolts and deteriorated pads of the old box were easy to replace, and the whole rig is stable and will work fine for years to come. >Thank you, eTrailer!.

Our old Thule needed new parts and it was amazing to find this kit. It’s like new!!!

Ordered replacement hardware for my Thule rooftop carrier and received the shipment in 3 days. The old hardware was rusty and the padding for the top and bottom plates were deteriorated. It only took approximately 10 min to remove the old hardware and install the new. Now I have a rooftop carrier that is as good as new. Prompt and courteous service with customer service follow up to make sure everything was good. Recommend etrailer.com to anyone. Great company!!

I've linked you to a product description video featuring the # TH05738 Quick Grip Mount. The # TH04997 you'd looked at are for an older cargo box, and wouldn't work with your Ascent.

  • Mounting Hardware for Thule Evolution 1600
    Your Thule Evolution 1600 cargo box used the EasySnap Mounting Hardware Kit, which is now obsolete. On their own, the QuickGrip Mount Assembly will not work on the Thule Evolution 1600 cargo box. It would require some drilling and some at home work along with these cradles # TH05738 to retro fit older boxes for these mounts. If your current mounts need replacing and you can't find the discontinued EasySnap Kit, then QM3 - Quick Mount Hardware # TH04997 is your next best solution. I attached...

  • Replacement Mounting Hardware Options for Older Yakima SpaceCase Cargo Box
    The correct replacement mounting hardware available for the Yakima SpaceCase Cargo Box is the Replacement Mounting Hardware part # 8870098. The Replacement Quick-Dial Mounting Assembly part # Y8870097 will not work as it requires a rather unique channel which would be very hard to replicate when retrofitting. If you are looking for an easier to use option, the Replacement QM3 Hardware part # TH04997 are much more universal and will work well with the Yakima SpaceCase Cargo Box but drilling...

  • Can I Use the Thule QM3 Mounting Hardware on a Thule Classic Cargo Box
    The Replacement QM3 Hardware # TH04997 is designed to fit on Thule Adventurer, Cascade, Excursion, Frontier, or Mountaineer but you may be able to make them work on your cargo box. It's likely that you will need to drill new holes to match the QM3 hardware if your cargo box's holes don't match up. I recommend that you use some Black Loctite # LT37467 to close up the holes and protect the interior of the box from moisture if you're going to be doing any drilling.

  • Does Replacement Hardware for Thule Mountaineer Cargo Box Fit Thule Aeroblade Crossbars
    The Replacement Cargo Box Hardware part # TH04997 that you referenced are designed to fit Thule Aeroblade crossbars like you have. This is also the correct hardware for a Mountaineer like you have. The QuickSnap conversion is not an option as Thule has discontinued those parts.

  • Can the Thule Quick Grip Mounts Be Used on a Cascade Roof Box
    Modifying your Thule Cascade box is not something that is recommended because it effects the structural integrity of the box, so the # TH05738 really isn't something that we recommend using to replace the mounting hardware on your box. If you're just in need of replacement mounting hardware for your Cascade box, the Replacement QM3 - Quick Mount Hardware # TH04997 will work for you and allow you to fit the same crossbars as the Quick Grip mounts. It's obviously not as convenient a solution,...

    Quick Grip Cradles # TH8523387001 can be installed along with the Quick Grip Mount Assembly # TH05738 on your older Thule Mountaineer Cargo Box, however you will need to make some modifications to the box. Please keep in mind that any modifications to the cargo box can potentially compromise its integrity and will also void the product's warranty. If you happen to need the replacement mounting hardware for your Mountaineer, you will use # TH04997.

  • Replacement Mounting Hardware for Thule Adventurer Cargo Box to Use on Wider Cross Bars
    The Thule Replacement QM3 Brackets # TH04997 has mounting holes 4" (center on center) apart, so they're going to fit much wider crossbars than your current brackets which only allow for bars around 2" wide and are designed for square bars. The QM3 brackets are the perfect solution as long as your current cross bars are no more than 3-11/16" wide, so I recommend measuring to confirm the width of your current bars. It should also be noted that the QM3 brackets are designed to fit on the...

  • Will Replacement Mounting Hardware for Thule Summit Cargo Box Fit Aero Crossbars
    You are correct that the Thule Replacement QM3 # TH04997 is the correct replacement hardware available for your Thule Summit 631. The QM3 hardware will let you mount your Summit cargo box on elliptical or aero-style crossbars. The bolts are spaced 4 inches apart as you mentioned. I have attached a photo showing this measurement on the bottom bracket of the mounting hardware. This will match up with holes in your cargo box to mount the box to your roof rack.

Foam pads will help the new mounting kit have increased stability and protect your crossbars. The curvature can be dealt with through tightening the mounting bolts to correctly pressure the kit's new feet onto the bars, with...
