Video Transcript for Thule Accessories and Parts TH14936 Review

Today we're going to review part number TH14936. This is the replacement dual force strut hinge. This part will fit the Thule Evolution cargo box and the Thule Atlantis cargo box. This is a hinge that's attached to the cargo box, and the way it attaches is on the cargo box, on the bottom of the cargo box there will be a ball socket. This will snap onto the ball socket at the bottom and on the top lid of the cargo box will be another ball socket. This top part of hinge will snap onto that.

It is used when you open your cargo box. This is spring loaded so it will open. It has spring tension onto it. That should do it for part number H14936.

I have an Thule Atlantas 1800XT roof box. Recently one of the hinges broke. I found the price for replacement parts at Etrailer to be the best on the web. I ordered my product on Monday morning and had the part in my hand by Wednesday mid day. One suggestion I have for installing the part. The etrailer site does have a video on easiest way to install. My box is slightly different and unless you have a pair of channel locks with an 8" reach then that wont work. Using brute force didn't work for me, neither did tapping it with a hammer. I grabbed my wife's blow dryer and set it to hot, I blew hot air on the plastic 'female' end of the part for about 3 minutes. After that it very easily snapped in. Just as an FYI the spring in the replacement part is way stronger that what was originally in my box. Fortunately I had ordered 2. If your box is more than a few years old and you need to replace one hinge... go ahead and replace them both at the same time. 340559

When the hinge on our large (and very expensive) Thule cargo box suddenly snapped, I thought it might not be repairable. But a quick internet search brought up the replacement hinge on etrailers site, and a video showing how to install it. Perfect! I ordered two, so that I would have a backup. Getting it both on and off was harder than the video made it seem, but some persistence and resourcefulness got it done (one hint: dipping the ends in very hot water for a few minutes created some give in the plastic that helped me pop them on by hand since I didn't have a pair of channel lock pliers with a big enough opening to fit around the hinge and the bar it attaches to). All in all, it wasn't too tough to get the old one off and the new one on, and now our expensive Thule cargo box is good as new. Thanks etrailer! 264052

I spent a good four months struggling with a broken hinge on my Thule Ascent 1700 until my last trip and I finally decided I had enough. Thought I was going to have a hard time finding this replacement piece until I stumbled on etrailer. I saw etrailer Customer Service already confirmed that the part would work for the Ascent 1700, so I placed my order. etrailer processed and shipped my part the same day I ordered, and I had my new part in a couple of days. I watched the video on how to replace the part on the etrailer website and within five minutes I had my new hinges in place. My five year old Thule Ascent 1700 works just like the day I bought it! Thanks etrailer! 276813

Product came in a timely manner. Excellent customer service when I ordered the item. Product arrived undamaged. The video was very helpful, but removal and replacement is not as easy as the video suggests. I damaged the item during replacement. An improvement would be to include a tool to remove the screws that the product pops onto. Then, I could work with the product outside of the cargo box. A huge pliers wrench would not be needed and by working outside of the box, I could apply pressure evenly so as not the break the female end connections. I must say the the product is well made and does not feel like a cheap model. 332405

I have a list of go-to vendors that I keep for future purchases. Who makes the list are vendors that have most or all of the following: 1. Easy to deal with 2. Have reasonable prices (Total cost plus S&H) 3. Are organized (Including website navigation, etc.) 4. Ship quickly 5. Stand behind their products. IS NOW ON THIS LIST. What a great transaction. They meet all 5 criteria and I'm very pleased with this transaction. I received the item quickly, and just this morning installed the replacement part on my Thule Evolution Carrier and it fits perfectly and performs flawlessly. I highly recommend 283691

I just acquired this used Thule Atlantis 1800 cargo box and needed a new hinge. I searched online and was fortunate to find etrailer. The correct product was easy to find, the price was more than reasonable, and the purchase quick and easy. I received a confirmation of the order immediately, notice that the product had been shipped the next day - followed up by a personal note from George at etrailer - and received the hinge two days later via priority mail. Installed now and the cargo box works like a charm. Thank you etrailer for making this process simple, inexpensive and oh so pleasant! 216132

I swear this replacement hinge didn't exist anywhere on the internet until recently. Whatever the case, I was elated to find this part available at etrailer. Installing this hinge was a bit of a chore - it took a lot more pressure to pop the socket over the hinge posts. Don't laugh, but I actually crawled inside the topper to get a better angle on installing the hinge. That worked for me, at least. The hinge works perfectly, and my Evolution 1600 doesn't need a prop stick to hold it open anymore. 82747

This product was the perfect fix for a damaged overworked Thule cargo roof box. Installation was a challenge due the connections on the Atlantis 1600 series box being part of the front and rear of the box. It took a bit of effort but all in all, it worked perfectly. The hinge will most likely outlast the rest of the box since due to heavy usage, the box has cracks and the claws for fastening to the stock roof bars aren't as snug and secure as they once were almost a decade ago. 349045

I snapped one of the hinges on my Thule sonic XL. I was looking for the replacement hinge and etrailer was one of the only places I could easily find the replacement. I bought two because I wanted to have one on hand. I'm glad I did, it is a perfect fit and easy to replace. I used a screwdriver and needle nose pliers to pop it off and channel lock pliers to press the new hinge onto the box. eTrailer had it shipped and delivered very quickly. 288948

I recently put our Thule cargo box on the roof of our Denali to head north for a week of skiing with the family. Unfortunately the lid lever broke which made opening and closing the box difficult. After a quick search of the internet, the only folks that could help me was Even Thule was out of stock. The lever arrived a day later and we are having a great week of skiing with a fully functional Thule Box. Well done 111640

Highly impressed with the website. Starting right off the bat with individual reviews and suggestions on cross references for what will fit on other manufacturers products. Was looking for hinges for my car top carrier. I was immediately shown 2 suggestions, and which one would work the best due to Spring strength. Regular shipment time was amazing. Have them installed and they work perfect 272987

My Thule hinge broke about a year ago, couldn't find a hinge anywhere and needed something fast for a trip I was going on. Found one on etrailer and its already lasted longer than the original one! Installation was as simple as snapping the piece onto the Thule cargo box. It took just a couple seconds. Couldn't be more happier with my purchase and speedy delivery. 294605

This was the first time I ever used this site and will use it again for sure. The part was cheaper than I expected and the shipping cheap. They have a great tracking system and arrived in quick fashion. Enjoyed that they had a couple of You-Tube type videos on the site showing how to install the item I ordered. Great experience. Thank you much!!! 351568

We ordered this to replace a broken one on our Thule box, and we had been having trouble getting our local Thule dealer to help us with the part. Etrailer customer service was excellent, I was given immediate information on shipping, and follow up emails when it arrived. We received it quickly and I would definitely order from this company again! 106122

Actually, this is the second hinge that I ordered, so that I'd have a spare one. Needless to say, I was very satisfied with the first one, which is already installed on the Thule box. Again, the installation was easy and straightforward, and the price was more than reasonable for the product. The dealer follow-up was also well appreciated. 374846

I have a 20 year old Weekender box by Thule. These are a different design than the original, however they do fit perfectly and function great on the Weekender box. etrailer, as always, was very prompt in getting them to me and the box was repaired before I needed to use it again.

Installation on a late-model Thule Adventurer box was fairly straightforward. The original gas-assisted cylinders had stopped working, and needed something to replace them. They're not a perfect fit on the ball/socket, but it should do exactly what we need for quite a while. 128521

The replacement hinge was easy nearly plug and play. Due to the odd angle I had to use a vice grip to pinch it into place. It was very easy to do. This box gets a lot of use each weekend with the family and the part has performed just as it should! Thanks for the help! 239332


We have since bought an additional box, and one of its hinges wore out! Of course I bought replacements from you and they installed as easy as the first time!Thanks for checking in.

Great service, great timing for delivery. The part was a little tricky to snap on - I ended up using a clamp and slowly tightening it until it snapped. Instructions on which end goes up and which goes down would have been appreciated - but I figured it out. Thanks e-trailer. 180837

I live in Alaska and broke this hinge on my Thule. These guys were the only place I could find one online, and the price was reasonable. I ordered two just in case the other one breaks, and to make it a better deal for shipping. It has worked out great so far! 356795

I purchased two of these hinges to replace failing strut hinges on an older model Thule Adventurer cargo box. The replacement parts fit and were easy to install. Unfortunately the hinges didn't have enough stiffness to hold the box in an open position. 359780

good match for the broken hinge. It would of been helpful to know that the metal inserts have to be cut out of the old hinge (Once I cut them out, I pressed them into the new hinge with a vice). Next time I'd just buy new metal inserts as well... 235166

by: Mike S.08/15/2016

Worked like a charm. After years of struggling with a broken hinge I did a quick google search and found this part on etrailer. I followed what others said and put both ends in very hot water for a minute or so and the piece snapped right on. 284082

Excellent replacement for the worn out hinges on my Thule box. Somewhat stiff to install but I think this is a good thing as they are pressure fitted balls fitting into the socket on the hinge. Excellent service and shipping. Thanks 146167

Read review that the hitch would work with Sears 20-SV. Even asked the e-trailer pro and was told to buy two even though there was no right or left strut. Did not work and made closing lid impossible. Was a waste of money and time. 150937


On this particular part, the spring inside is stronger than the original equipment on the 20-SV. However, the arm length is the same, and functionality and mounting will be the same as well. It will require more input to close, as the spring is stronger and thus requires more force to collapse and allow the box to close. The TH14933 has a different spring and was for our smaller boxes, therefore it would be easier to close the box if that part is installed.

  • The Thule Replacement Hinge, part # TH14936 is attached to the cargo box by snapping the round hole on the end of each hinge onto the ball sockets on the mounting brackets. I went out in our warehouse and opened a Thule cargo box and snapped the hinge off of the ball socket and back on and it did take some pressure to get it to snap off and on to the ball.

My contact also stated that both hinges should be changed at the same time for best performance. I have linked a video review of the hinge for you. But we have recently been told that on that particular box you should use # TH14933 which has a spring with less tension making the box easier to close.

  • Replacement Parts for an Old Thule Cargo Box that Used Gas Struts
  • 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. This strut is listed as a fit for many different Thule boxes as you can see on its product page. The other one, # TH14936, fits the longer Thule boxes. For installation kit # SR05493 the large plate measures 5-1/2 by 2-1/2 inches. The space between the two ends of the u-bolt is 3-3/4 inches so it would not fit around a 4 inch wide bar....

Since your box is a little older, and appears to have used the metal latches, you might need to relocate the mounting holes for the latch, but other than that, the latch should work just fine for you. For the Sears X-Cargo boxes, the only hinge that will fit according to Thule is # TH14933. Both hinges measure 10-1/2 inches long from the center...

  • The replacement hinge for you Thule Atlantis 1600XT cargo carrier is part # TH14936. The Thule hinge is sold in quantities of one. Since you are replacing one broken hinge, I recommend replacing both at the same time. Replacing all the hinges will guarantee that your Thule carrier will be in good working order and ready to go when you get the need to travel.

  • Replacement Hinge for a Thule Classic Series Cargo Box
  • The difference between the Thule hinges or struts # TH14936 and # TH14933 is the spring tension. The shorter length boxes use the lighter spring strut, # TH14933. Since your box is 90 inches long, that would be a longer model and you would use # TH14936. All of the Thule Classic boxes used the same strut but the original is no longer available. That would be why the newer ones look different.

  • Replacement Hinges for Thule Adventurer Cargo Box have Different Tension
  • The original hinges or struts are no longer available for the Thule Adventurer cargo boxes but the current ones, # TH14936, will fit and are what you should be using. There isn't a right and left and the orientation should not matter. It sounds like you might have one # TH14936 and one # TH14933. They are identical on the outside but the TH14936 will have more tension (a heavier internal spring) than the TH14933. You can identify each one when the struts are open. In the lighter one,...

  • Replacement Lid Hinge/Strut for a Thule Atlantis 2100 XT Cargo Box
  • It sounds like you need hinge # TH14936 because it has a heavier internal spring than # TH14933. The heavier spring requires more pressure to close the box lid so that the lid will not fall down under its own weight. I have included links to a couple of videos on # TH14936 for you.

  • Recommended Repair for Thule Cargo Box Strut Attachment Bracket
  • Thank you for your included photo of the strut bracket on your Thule cargo box. You can re-attach it. You'll want to locally source stainless steel hardware that is just long enough to reach through the bracket from the outside and accept a lock washer and nut. Use at least 3 fasteners. Avoid hardware that may be too long and which might interfere with the lid mechanism or become snagged on your loaded cargo. Also try to find hardware that will not require you to enlarge the holes in...

  • Will the Thule Ascent 1500 Cargo Box Fit the Factory Roof Rack on a 2012 GMC Acadia
  • The Thule Ascent series of cargo boxes has been discontinued but I was able to find a 2012 application guide and found the answer. Thule did list the box as a fit to the factory crossbars on your 2012 GMC Acadia. You might want to check to see if the crossbars are adjustable on your roof rack. The current box that is closest to the Ascent 1500 that fits your Acadia is the Pulse L # TH615. I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • Replacement Hinge for a Subaru Branded Cargo Box
  • I believe that the Subaru cargo box that you have is a Thule Evolution in disguise. If it is the longer version (18 cubic foot model) then the correct replacement hinge is # TH14936. If it is a 16 cubic foot model use # TH14933.

  • Replacement Spring Hinge for Karrite Galaxy Rooftop Cargo Box
  • Thule is indeed the manufacturer of the Karrite branded cargo boxes sold by Sears and so it is often the case that Thule's (or sister-brand SportRack's) parts will work in Karrite applications. This cargo box goes back quite a few years according to my Thule contact. We offer Replacement Spring Hinge # SR03810 that works with SportRack and many Sears cargo boxes. My Thule contact indicated that original parts for the box are no longer offered since its design is roughly 15 years old,...

  • 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...

  • Thule Force XL Replacement Hinge Recommendation
  • The replacement hinge for the Thule Force XL is the part # TH14936 that you referenced. Basically the old hinge will pry off with a bit of force or leverage and the new one will get pressed on either by a tight squeeze from your hands or from a set of channel locks like in the video I attached. If you can't fit a vice grip or channel lock in there you may try using a rubber mallet to gently press the hinge on.
