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. .

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!! 450866

one year running works great used it all summer and now back on in the spring . easy to put together and works like a charm thanks 538820

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 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! 454226

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

I purchased this adapter so I could put my (30+ year?) old Thule Adventurer box on my new Highlander with a stock car top rack. Adapter came to my house in a few days. I had to drill new holes in the box, but that was very simple. Was nice they included tape to fill the other holes and the straps were an expected nice surprise - will use them for sure. End to end it took me less than an hour - but I measure 5 times and cut once! 739245

I have an older Thule Summit cargo box. I got it used and the old mounting hardware worked fine except I switched vehicles and went from round bars to aero bars. So I needed new mounting hardware for the wide bars. I talked to Thule and they recommended a new box based on the age of the Summit and offered 50% off, but I don't use the box often and didn't want to spend the money. So someone recommended etrailer and after explaining my problem they did some research and recommended this kit. I received it this morning and had it mounted in an hour. Thanks etrailer! 733173

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

Both items I ordered work perfectly and are helping me extend the life of my Thule box. Prices were very fair and the fact that they had the hinge that Thule didn’t was a real bonus. 658096
