Video Transcript for Thule Roof Box TH04997 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part #TH04997. This is the replacement QM3 quick mount hardware. This kit's going to replace your lost or damaged nylon hardware for the Thule Adventurer, Cascade, Excursion, Frontier or Mountaineer roof-rack cargo box. Just keep in mind that this will not fit the ES models. It's going to include complete set of mounting hardware for 1 cargo box. You're going to get the complete set for four feet. It's going to contain four sets of Quick-Mount brackets.

You see everything that you're going to get. You're going to get these foam pads. These are going to have an adhesive backing. It's designed to be put onto the mounting plates, that way it doesn't cause any type of damage to your crossbars. You're going to get all the hardware too. You're going to get 8 standard length bolts for normal size crossbars.

These are going to measure 3 inches long, just the threaded portions are going to measure 2 3/4". You're going to get all your lock washers. You're going to get the hand knobs, your going to get the round stickers. These are designed to cover up any exposed holes in the bottom of the box. It's going to help keep out moisture, dirt, debris, any type of grime.

You're also going to get a couple tie-down straps, that way you can secure your gear inside your box. It's a really simple installation, really simple operation. These right here are going to be place inside the box. They're going to have the tie-down loops on it. You can run your straps through there, secure your gear in place. Four of those, 1 for each foot location.

Then you're going to have your large brackets. Your large brackets are going to go on the bottom of the box, in between the bottom of the box and the top of the crossbar. One of the pads would be installed on there, just to give a little bit of cushion as you tighten it down, making sure it doesn't do any damage to your roof rack system. That's what those 4 brackets are for. These right here are going to be the brackets that go on the bottom of the crossbar. Your bolts are going to come up through there. They're going to run through the inside of the box. That's when you would tighten down the hand knob. The smaller pad's going to go on that top portion there. That's going to make contact with the bottom of your load bar of your roof rack system. Again, the foam pads are included that have the adhesive backing. That's just to protect the finish of your roof rack system's crossbars. Again, this is a full kit. It's going to work as a full replacement for all 4 feet on your cargo boxes. Again this is going to fit Thule Adventurer, the Thule Cascade, Excursion, Frontier or Mountaineer roof-rack cargo box. That's going to do it for our review of part #TH04997. .

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. 96479

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!. 573380

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. 550076

We have an older Thule Frontier box we got from a family member missing some pieces, and this is the right kit for it! The others with the U-bolt would not have fit. We just got back from a road trip where we went camping, and it held up great. The initial fitting takes two people and careful concentration, but after that the fittings stay on the box and it should be really easy to get back on. Love it! For reference, we have a 2002 Toyota Rav4 with a back door that swings out, and a factory rack. 665222

After a year, I can recall the great price, rapid/accurate technical advice and speedy delivery. The adapter kit installed easily.

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.

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Is the RhinoRack RS 2500 Roof Rack Compatible with a Thule Frontier Cargo Box?
  • It looks like the Thule Frontier ES Cargo Boxes used the Thule EasySnap Mounting Hardware # TH05820 which is 3-1/4" wide x 3" tall. Since the RhinoRack RS 2500 Crossbars # RRRS222B are 3-1/8" wide x 1-3/16" tall they're going to be a perfect fit for the original U-bolt mounting hardware on your Frontier ES cargo box-if you've got a different U-bolt kit on your Frontier ES, just make sure that the U-bolts are at least 3-1/8" wide (inside to inside) to verify that they'll fit these bars....

  • Replacement Mounting Hardware For The Thule Mountaineer Part # 669TT

According to our record, the Replacement QM3 part # TH04997 will not fit this carrier with a bolt spacing of 3-15/16".

  • Replacement Hardware and Hinge/Strut Recommendation for Thule Weekender Cargo Box
  • After consulting our contacts at Thule we have determined that the correct mounting hardware for the Weekender cargo box is the QM3 hardware, # TH04997. This is the only hardware kit we offer for the Weekender so if this is already what you have and it doesn't work you may be out of luck. The correct strut is the part # TH14933 that you referenced though.

  • You'll want to pick up part # TH14933 to replace the strut. The hinges are too weak to support some Thule models, and you'll risk damage to the box or yourself if you replace with the strut. Thule is moving away from the older, gas-powered kits to newer spring loaded versions like part # TH14933 The hardware kit, part # TH04997, is only available to replace the actual mounting hardware to connect the box to your roof rack system.

I used digital calipers to ensure the accuracy of this measurement. Just between the holes - not the center of the hole - it is 3-11/16". This bracket is the correct replacement for your Thule Adventurer cargo box; it can also be found as part of the Replacement QM3 - Quick Mount Hardware - for Adventurer Cargo Box # TH04997.

The holes in the box should be 2 inches apart on center or 4 inches apart on center. The EasySnap u-bolts are 3-1/4 inches wide so they would not work with the Summit cargo box. To use different hardware you would have to modify the box which is not recommended because it can compromise the structural integrity of the box.

  • Thule Cargo Box Hardware Recommendation for a Thule Mountaineer
  • If the Mountaineer cargo box you have is an ES model (669ES) then # TH05820 will fit. For older Mountaineer boxes, the correct replacement hardware is # TH04997. I recommend sticking with the correct replacement hardware for your specific box because to use a different style, you would have to make modifications to the box and that can compromise the structural integrity of the box.

  • Mounting Hardware Recommendation for a Thule Summit 631 to Mount to Thule Rapid Aero Load Bars
  • The hardware that is used by the Thule Summit cargo box 631 was actually an earlier version of the QM3 Hardware, # TH04997, that you have referenced. I did speak with my contact at Thule and she stated that you can retro-fit the EasySnap Mounting Kit, # TH05820, to he box but it will be a tight fit. Thule Rapid Aero bars would be compatible with the box and the new hardware kit.
