Video Transcript for Thule Roof Box Replacement Dual Force Strut Review

Video: etrailer.comAudio: Today we're going to be showing you how to replace the strut for your Thule roof box using part number TH14933.Video: etrailer.com Part number: TH14933Audio: Now this is going to work with your Sonic, Force, Pulse, and Pulse Alpine line of Thule roof boxes. It's also going to work with a wide variety of other Thule roof boxes provided your strut looks like this. A few common reasons you may need to replace your strut are: you may develop a stress fracture around the sockets here that may cause it to pop loose or come off, or a non-functioning joint. Replacing your strut is a lot cheaper than buying a brand new roof box. Now there's two common attachments for your struts. They may attach to a brace on the inside of your box or it may simply attach directly to a ball-and-socket joint on the inside edge of your roof box. We'll go ahead and show you how to do both. Now if yours is cracked or broken right around the ball-and-socket, you're in luck. It's probably just going to pop right on off, if it hasn't already.

If it doesn't come off by hand, you can use a pair of needle-nose pliers. What I'm going to do is I'm just going to pinch the ball portion here and then I'm going to angle it until it pops off, just like that. With the strut now loose, the bottom will just pop right off, like so. Now it may help to have somebody support it open, or you can just use anything that will hold it open for you. Then we'll just take our new strut - you want to make sure it's in the open position - if you'd like to, you can do this by hand, but it can be extremely difficult. You'll need to squeeze it and push it on into place. I've found that it was easier to use a clamp like this.

What you want to do is you want to make sure that one end goes directly behind the socket, and that the other end centers it up. Then we'll just squeeze until it pops on, just like that. Then we can just repeat the same process for the bottom. I'm just going to line it up, bring in my clamp, make sure I've got it positioned correctly, and then squeeze, just like that. Now if you've got it installed correctly, it should just prop open your lid. Let's just go ahead and try and close it and then open it again to make sure it's working.

Looks like it closes, and it just props right back up. Now there is no right or left to these. The same strut works for both sides. If you're working with a brace set-up like we have here, I'm just going to use those needle-nose, kind of work it loose. Now we've got a little bit more room to work with in this instance, so we can use a smaller pair of pliers, or channellocks is what I'm using. I'm just going to line it up and then squeeze it until it pops all the way on, just like that. Then we'll repeat the same process on the bottom.

And then we're done. Works great. We're all set. And that's going to complete a replacement for our Thule strut for Thule roof boxes, part number TH14933.Video: etrailer.com Part number: TH14933Video: etrailer.com etrailer.com.

The hinges were a pain in the butt to install on the sears sport 20sv. (And removing old bits) But then again I took great care to avoid damaging the plastic cargo carrier. Also I understand Thule told etrailer these were the more appropriate part for this model for easier opening or closing, but with these I find I have t push the lid ALL the way up to stay open. It seemed to me the originals would take over after a partial lift and lift it the rest of the way for me. Either way happy I fixed my box. Price was good and lady very friendly on their customer service line. 410090

Recently I bought a used Thule cargo box for the top of my Suburban. It had a broken strut and was told by the seller that I could find a replacement at etrailer.com. He was right so I ordered two. For that price having a spare seemed a good idea. They arrived within the week. Excellent service by etrailer.com. The ball joints of the strut and box snap together and I was concerned about cracking the box when removing the broken one so I checked YouTube. Sure enough, etrailer.com has a video on how to remove/install them. I had to use my biggest channel lock pliers to squeeze the new one on and put a small block of wood against the side of the box to protect it but not too difficult. The strut itself is plastic but seems adequate for the job it's meant? to do, hold up the top. As for installation, I'd recommend having a second person to hold up the top so you can have two hands free to work. Overall, the product, price and service were excellent. Thanks etrailer.com! 380895

Fit and works wonderfully with my Thule Weekender. I bought the box used for cheap and one hinge was broken. You probably want to replace both of you still have an original, these open a little higher so using one original will open lopsidedly. 612583

Received everything and new hinge is installed on Thule box everything was straight forward except albeit after viewing how to remove socket screws with neddle nose pliers proved to be extremely difficult. Therefore I remove complete broken hinge and was able to force out with large standard screwdriver and press fit into new hinge with small vice. 588500

The product order placement was an ease. Shipment was awesome to my house in 3 days, regular mail. And the product itself is excellent, easy to install and by far better then the original equipment. Highly recommend the product and etrailer for product replacement and satisfaction. I will definitely will use etrailer in the future for new and replacement ordering/shopping! Complete satisfaction! 216705

The hinge support on my ski box failed last Thursday when I unloaded the skis at the end of a ski trip, this was all a puzzle to me, it took a moment to realize what had happened--those flimsy boxes are very unstable without these supports. Did my research, found etrailer--possibly the only source? My box is Sears Xcargo Xtreme. I didn't see that precise one on the list of Thule boxes that the part was for but some models seemed close enough--besides, there are only two supports to choose from, how wrong could I go? I paid the extra $ for Priority shipping bc I had another ski trip coming up and I need that box. It arrived promptly, I installed it today. If you subtract the time it took to take the box off the car and return it, the repair took about 5 minutes. I used the clamp with the screw handle that another reviewer recommended, I was not sure if I would have the hand strength to use the large vise grips that the man in the video used. I am a 71 year old woman. To my great relief, the new support worked perfectly and does seem more substantial than the original. I did buy a second one but decided to hold it in reserve, the other original seemed okay for now. (That may be a mistake). With my experience, the second one shouldn't take but about 3 minutes when that time comes. Now, off to Vermont for two more ski trips and no icy skis inside the car, which is the point of all this. Thanks, etrailer!! I have no idea what I'd have done without your excellent service. 609024

Put these on a Thule Adventurer (I think it is the 650, but not sure as someone gave it to me). They work great. It was a little confusing at first because the existing struts "bent" towards the inside on both the left and the right side. With these, one of them will bend toward the inside and another will bend towards the outside. Hopefully looking at my pictures it will make sense. Also, I used a rubber mallet to put them on. I braced the box with my knee and gave a good whack to the strut and it went on pretty easy. Wanted to also give props to Etrailer's web site. They had a lot of good information and helped me to find exactly what I needed. Would definitely use again. 514556

I bought this carrier years ago at a garage sale missing both hinges. I can't believe I waited so long to fix it right. These are well made and easy to install, and have held up to our youngest son's band road trips. Great idea on the one year follow up request, as I'm sure the reviews are more reliable with some empirical data. 359467

Order was processed quickly, received confirmation and tracking number when shipped. Product shipped out in the next day or two, product was delivered quickly and product is good. No damages. Replaced my broken strut. Great company to work with especially the customer service. 705146

I purchased these for a 2000 or 2001 Thule Frontier. The video was helpful in selecting the right hinges; I need one but replaced both. I was worried they wouldn't fit when I compared them because the new hinge was about 1" longer than the old one, but they fit fine. Glad I could still buy the part! 694375

I am very satisfied with this purchase. This hinge has made my Thule roof top carrier so much nicer. I was making do with a broken one, but now it stays open so nicely. It was easy to install, just popping the broken one off and squeezing the new one on. Well worth the money. 668599

Part worked fine. Delivered per schedule. Training video on installation was good but hardware near me did not have the tool depicted with a large enough jaw. After looking at tools for a while in the hardware I choose a 5" C clamp. Before buying a tool, measure the depth of the lip of the material on the roof top carrier so you know how big a tool or clamp to buy. Place the C clamp in position and tighten the screw onto the part so the ball is pressed into the socket. The new strut is made better / sturdier than the original. My carrier box is a Thule Frontier, about 20 years old. 598938

Only one of my factory hinges were broken, but I went ahead and replaced both hinges at the same time. These hinges are much more solid construction than the original factory ones.

Perfectly fit our decade old Sears XCargo Sport 20 storage bin after one of the struts cracked. I replaced both as recommended, kept the unbroken strut as an extra backup should one ever crack on the road. Can dislodge the old item from its post with a flathead screwdriver. Pop the new strut on and can use an adjustable grip to click it tightly into place. Works perfectly. 510921

  • Replacement Hinge For Older Thule Roof Cargo Box
  • You can do a quick check of the hinges you have on your older Thule cargo box. I have attached a photo you can use as a guide. If you open the box and look at the inner part of the large arm and it has a White piece near the pivot point, the replacement hinge you need is part # TH14936. If that same piece is Black the replacement hinge is part # TH14933. These hinges have different tension so I would recommend replacing both at the same time so that you do not have a chance that...

  • 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.

  • Thule Sonic Lid Lifter Rivet Replacement for Replacing Hinges
  • The Thule rivet covers you mentioned are compression fit and would typically fit pretty tightly. If one comes out when installing the # TH14933 or # TH14936, you can re-install it or replace it with # 14303. A tiny drop of super glue will help the cover stay in place.

  • Possible Replacement Strut Solution for Older Thule Alpine Cargo Box
  • It is likely that the replacement strut # TH14933 will fit your old Thule cargo box. Thule has not used gas strut hinges for a very long time though.

  • I reached out to my contact at Thule who said that there is no replacement ball for the Dual Force Strut # TH14933.

Otherwise both hinges are the exact same size and shape.

  • Replacement Hinges/Struts for a Sears Sport SV Cargo Box
  • There isn't a left and a right. There is just one strut that works on both sides. Replacement hinge or strut # TH14936 might be a tight fit since it is slightly different than the originals, which are no longer available, but it should still work.

  • Is there a Left and Right Replacement Hinge/Strut for Thule Atlantis 1200 Cargo Box
  • You are correct. There isn't a left and right hinge, just the one hinge style for your Thule Atlantis 1200 cargo box. So one of them would need to be upside down.

  • Replacement Hinge for a Thule Adventurer Cargo Box
  • For the Thule Adventurer cargo boxes you can use replacement hinge # TH14936. This is not the exact same hinge that originally came on the boxes but it can be used.

  • Replacement Parts for Thule 669ES Mountaineer Cargo Box
  • Replacement Struts, # TH14933, and Replacement EasySnap Hardware, # TH05820, are available for the Thule 669ES Mountaineer Cargo Box.
