Replaces 1 AcuTight cradle for your Thule roof-mounted cargo box.


My original is broke in two. Other than the fact that my new replacement part isn't broke in two, they are identical. The new one just snapped right on. It's the easiest fix ever.
I think that it got cut off in the uploaded photo of the bottom of my repaired cargo pod. Other then the new one being black and shiny, while the older ones are dull and grey, all of the cradles are identical.


I'm not yet sure how these will work. While the appear to be exactly the same as the originals that came with my Thule box when looking at them from the top, when you look at them from the side they are not. (See pictures.Original cradle is on the right in the side-by-side picture, and on the bottom in the stacked, side-view picture.) The new cradle may still work, and it would clearly better than trying to use the box without anything at all. I am going to give it a go and will report back if it breaks quickly.


My Thule rooftop cargo carrier was broken and this replacement part made it as good as new!


etrailer is simply the best!

I broke
my Thule on Sunday and needed for a ski trip Friday morning; they had the part cheaper than anywhere else, and I called them (on Sunday) to make sure I chose the correct shipping option that would get me it by Thursday without overpaying. The part looks perhaps a slight bit thinner than the original Thule part when looked at side by side, but it worked perfect.


One of our rooftop carrier parts broke. Was easy to find this replacement part. Works perfect.


I was very happy to see this small Thule part even available, let alone as a single item purchase. Very easy to identify on the site. The almost instant shipping and arrival was just as impressive. Fixed my floating mount issue and I learned how to tighten the rest. Thank you!


Repaired my Thule cargo carrier and saved me from needing to purchase a new carrier.


Perfect fit and easy installation! Thank you!


Purchasing and shipping was great. The only issue is that this cradle is not an accurate replacement for the Thule Pulse cradles. The thicker ends are not as deep but it works fine for tightening the clamps to the box’s bottom.



After a year the cradle is still in place and working well. While it wasnt a perfect fit, it is doing the job with no issues whatsoever.


Received exactly what I ordered in a timely manner. First time ordering from etrailer and I will be ordering from them in the future! Thanks


These shims are thinner then factory. Luckily I bought two. They should be sold in pairs or the carrier will not be level. Easier to get than the factory parts.


Easy ordering and reliable shipping. Thanks for the service.


The accessory fit perfectly the Thule cargo. Happy with the purchase.


I ordered the cradles to replace the older original cradles that are larger and longer. Mine kept popping off and based upon the other reviews, they appeared to be the correct replacement. (Picture 1) The older cradle is on the left and the new replacement on the right. The newer cradles are slimmer and smaller - but fit just fine. Only extra thing I did was to add a washer (2nd picture) to help keep the screw in place and prevent the cradle from popping off like the old ones used to.


Parts arrived on time and were the correct fit



No issues 1 year later


not as expected and nothing like the or iginal

Would you be able to email me some pictures of the part you received? It could be there is a design change to the part and we would update the pictures on our site if that is the case.


Glad to have these replacement parts to the latches don't roll around within the cargo box.

Still working fine - roof rack pit back on top for summer.


Great experience. The item was exactly as needed and reasonably priced.


I found it easier to locate and purchase from your site than it was from the actual manufacturer's site (Thule). Go figure! And it was delivered within days; very happy. Thank you. I've bought from you before (small boat dolly) and I will again. Happy camper!


Product fits exactly and works as necessary. The curve is slightly less so it could technically slide easier especially on narrow crossbars. While I doubt this would be a problem, I will attach a picture...the original is on the right.


I ordered a replacement part for a Thule cargo box, and was very pleased with the entire experience with etrailer! I found them via an online search as one of the few places carrying the part. Confirmed that it was the right part via their website. Ordering the part was easy. They have excellent email communication to alert me when the part was shipped and received. Shipping was great (even during pandemic). The whole process was seamless. I am a happy customer!


This is a perfect replacement for the OEM part



Holding steady. Feels exactly like the original part.


First time ordering from this company and I am thoroughly impressed with their selection of parts, ease of ordering, pricing, and quick shipping. Instead of being forced to buy the whole grip assembly for my cargo carrier, I was able to purchase only the part needed for the assembly. It came sealed in a plastic bag and of excellent quality. Will purchase from them again should I need anything else.


No comments on the part itself, but I'm sure it will be fine. No issues with eTrailer as they always provide fast shipping. One note of caution that wasn't completely obvious to me - if you have an older Ascent box, the screws that hold in the original cradle do not have a built in washer and the hole in the replacement cradles is larger in diameter, so either order new screws or buy some washers. I was under the impression the old screws would work and since I still had them, I didn't order new ones. In my opinion, these shouldn't be sold separately. See my picture with the old screw resting on top of the new cradle for a sense of what I mean.


Works great, exactly what you need when one of your feet from a roof carrier breaks. Not the cheap knock offs from Amazon. These have lasted a year without getting brittle or showing signs of wear. Worth the money to get the right ones
