Video Transcript for Review of Thule Ski and Snowboard Racks - Watersport Carriers - TH34FR94BT

Hey, everybody. Welcome to etrailer.com. I'm Bobby, and today we're taking a look at the Thule square bar adapters for various accessories. Now, these are gonna be a great little way of allowing us to go ahead and attach to our square bars, especially utilizing those T-slot attachments here at the top, so can be a great little solution. There's a lot of times those square bars don't have that T-slot. We do have a lot of carriers that do utilize it.

Taking a closer look here at the product you guys can see, definitely a durable well-made product. Thule always known for their good work. At the top here you are seeing just this little metal bracket here that simply was clamping onto our square bars, you guys can see giving us a nice stable base for ourselves. That bottom piece here, that does have a plastic covering on the outside, just a little hard plastic for that metal bracket there on the inside. And you guys can see exactly where that hinges, and how that allows us to go ahead, allow our square bars to go in place, bring this up and simply latch into position here at the top.

That latch, very easy to use. Just simply slides right in, and then as we actually do get our T-slot in here, that's actually what's doing a lot of the work of tightening this down. So, at the top here, you're seeing this plastic little piece that just simply pops up, or pops down, I should say, and allows us to reinstate our T-bolt into that top portion. So to go ahead and give us an idea of how we can utilize that, I've gone ahead and grabbed the Thule jaw grip here. So, this is just one carrier that you guys may have, or just to get a little example here to show us how we can get this installed.

This knob just simply backs off, of course, allowing our bolt to slide out. Now that T-bolt normally slides around those T-channels, but unfortunately for us and our square bars, we don't have that. So, I just simply take my covering here. Pop it. Insert our bolt, like so, with the threads going up, and then re-insert our plastic holder, clipping it back into position, and reinserting it into our jaw grip.

Now today on our jaw grip, we can only fit one way as you guys can see. Definitely wouldn't be able to fit there, start binding. So make sure we are appropriately putting those into our carriers, and then just simply re-tightening our knob here to start it. Now, I do also have a square bar today from Thule to go ahead and show us how I get this clamped on. So, I just simply take my carrier here. I take my metal bracket. Insert it like so, and bring up our latch, and get it back right into that position. So it is loose in this position as you guys can see, and we can go ahead and put this wherever we need on our bar system. However, I just simply have to tighten down on this hand knob to bring this all in line with itself, get it nice and tight on our bar. And with just a few revolutions, it should be nice and secure. So as you guys can see no shifting, no wobbling. It is nice and secure there on our bar system. So, great easy solution for ourselves, makes that kinda change no time at all. Let's take in a closer look here. We can go ahead and give ourselves some dimensions for ourselves. So, starting with that inside height, from that plastic in the metal holding at the bottom there to the top of our bracket on the inside, it's putting us exactly at an inch and 1/8 for ourselves. Our inside length for our bracket is gonna be right at an inch and 1/8. Oh, I'm sorry, guys, an inch and 3/8 for ourselves for that inside length. Our outside height is gonna be right at two and 1/8 inches for ourselves at that high point there, while our outside length is gonna be putting us right at two inches for ourselves. And that depth for ourselves is gonna be right at an inch and 3/4 for that outside dimension. So, definitely doesn't take up too much room, which is very important on those bar systems. It can start getting a lot busy, and we wanna use that space as much as we can. Especially if you have a smaller roof, can be an issue of keeping that low profile, so it's nice that we aren't actually adding too much room with these adapters. Well, guys, I think that that about does it for our look at the Thule square bar adapters for various accessories here at etrailer.com. I'm Bobby, thank you for watching..

Review from a similar SquareBar in Accessories and Parts


The bars are nice but Thule pointedly does not include under bar cover strips with this style of bars. They include these strips with the other three styles of bars they sell. Including these strips would cut the wind noise these bars produce substantially. I overcame this omission by re-using an old 5/8 inch ID (7/8 inch OD) garden hose that I cut up and slid inside the bars from the ends.


Comments
After having the rack on my car for about a year I can say the bars are still pretty noisy even with my modification. I know theyre square bars and by definition square bars are noisy but I frankly think Thules design of the feet that attach the bars to the roof is not particularly aerodynamic either and so the feet are contributing significantly to the wind noise, too. I bought square bars because I have some older roof attachments that were designed for square bars and I wanted to reuse them instead of having to buy all new ones for a different bar shape. The old attachments fit just fine on these bars so Ill save the money and live with the wind noise.

I think this a great roof rack it held a Thule box on a 2019 accord to florida but one thing I think that sucks is how much it whistles when driving besides that its great!!


Comments
The square bars are known to whistle compared to the aerodynamic cross bars. I recommend the Thule AirScreen XT part # TH22WV
AirScreen XT for Thule Crossbars - 52" Long
$139.95
to divert the wind up and over the cross bars to eliminate some of the wind noise.

Very fast delivery. The box in which the bars were shipped was opened on one end. Two of the end caps were missing. Also, I don't know if there are supposed to be a plastic filler strip for the bottom slots in the bars. If there is, I didn't receive those either. Since the towers have 4 end caps in that box, I was not concerned about the two missing from the bars.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

The crossbars were delivered but one end of the box was ripped open during transit.The end caps on the crossbars were missing. I called customer service and the are sending me new end caps free of charge. Good cUstomer service.


Comments
The crossbars are great. I’ve used it many times for my kayak using it with Thule kayak carrier. To eliminate the whistling sound I ed some insulation foam in each end of the bars. Now it’s totally quiet.

I bought this rack to transport my recreational kayaks and it works great! With the addition of a Llama "v" rack I'm all set to transport my 21'5" tandem. Good fun. The Thule is the base and I couldn't be happier with it!

This was the best price I found for the roof rack. My order arrived with a torn box which was UPS's fault so I was missing the end caps for the bars. When I called in a very friendly agent helped me and sent me the replacement caps free of charge and kept in contact with me until I received them. I will definitely buy from here again.

This review is about the cross bars, the towers, clamps and pads made by Thule from the etrailer site. The instructions were straightforward, and the parts were clearly identified and labelled. Installation was easy, primarily because of the availability of instructional videos etrailer provided on line. Seeing it done from start to finish made the installation quite easy and straightforward. Looking forward to using my new roof system to transport our kayak this summer! Am very satisfied.

Review from a similar SquareBar in Accessories and Parts


I have ordered quite a bit from Etrailer in the past, but this will be my last order. First, I ordered the Thule Gutter system and specifically ask if the old style square bars would fit the gutter system….answer was yes. In fact, it did not. Then had to order the Evo Square bars. They only come in 60”. Most of my orders come in within three days this order took 10 days, it was sent by snail mail. It arrived and the four end caps were not there and one of the bars had a bend in it. Had to reorder. These EVO bars suck. There is a slot you have to massage to get the bar into, very hard to adjust. Super disappointed in the product from Thule and the shipping service from etrailer. Hate to do it, back to [online stores] etc.

The Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbars, Rapid Traverse Feet, and Fit Kit for the Roof Rack Feet were all promptly shipped and delivered within three days of the order. I had them all assembled and installed on my Ford Focus in less than an hour.

So far so good! The ease of installation was incredible. Pop the fit kit together, put it on the bar and install. Everything is straight forward with the directions. Its even easier if you find a video of the installation. The rack definitely has a little bit of a whistle to it but its kinda expected when you disrupt the airflow. I'm going to pick up my new kayak tomorrow and couldn't be happier! Not the best photo but its all i got at the moment lol.

Review from a similar SquareBar in Accessories and Parts


I went with this Rola Vortex Cargo Rack with extension for its size and multiple tie down points. I Paired it with the Thule 5 inch rapid gutter feet with square bars because: To remove the freedom panels. Square bars are stronger than Aero type bars. Adjustability of fitment as the roof of the Jeep narrows toward the rear. When loaded for camping, I want to maintain rearward vision. Finally, the system met my load requirements. I had weighed the gear that will go onto the rack. And I am at OME specs. I did not want to use the gutter of the freedom panels to carry weight. Since the panels are removable, it seemed to be a potential weak point structurally. NOTES: Because this Rola rack comes in sections, I do not recommend it for “Overlanding”. And because it comes in sections, some weather proofing is needed. I coated the cargo rack guides with an anti seize grease. The bolts of the cargo clamps should be weather proofed as well. Over time, the screws will need to be replaced. They will rust. CONCLUSION Overall I am happy with this set up. Should work well for general camping and hold up to the easier off road trails. If your plans are to Overland for weeks at a time in all weather conditions on moderate to difficult trails having off camber conditions, then this rack may be problematic over time. And may cause damage to the roof top.

Exactly as shown. They are somewhat different than the other bars I have in that there is a 4 inch slot on the underside of the bar. Unfortunately, this causes a loud wind noise when on the roof of the SUV.

Still love it. Looking forward to a long road trip with almost everything up top

We called for advice about Thule parts to fit some older Thule components & the etrailer rep, Stacey, was terrific. She explained exactly what we needed & emailed with contact info if we had questions. Great price, free fast shipping. E-trailer is the best source we have used.

  • Will the SquareBar Adapters # TH34FR94BT Work with My Crossbars and My Barrecrafter Ski Rack?
    I have an answer for you. The SquareBar Adapters for Thule Winter and Water Sport Carriers # TH34FR94BT are only designed to fit Thule SquareBars or Inno Squarebars that are 1-1/4" wide x 7/8" tall. As long as you have Thule/Inno Square bars that are smaller than those dimensions, they will work on your truck cap.

  • What Paddle/Oar Holder with Locks do You Recommend?
    As far as the mounting style on the Thule JawGrip # TH73NV, it comes with bolts that go into top crossbar channels. This is because it is a channel-mount style. It is important to note that if you have square crossbars, you need the additional adapter # TH34FR94BT. Even though I do not know what Smitty product you are referring to, the JawGrip does not come with locks, so you will need to disengage the carrier and lock them in your vehicle when not in use.
