Video Transcript for Thule Roof Rack THXADAPT3 Review

Today we're taking a look at the Thule Xadapt3 Load Bar Adapter Kit. Now this kit allows you to mount a Hullaport Kayak Carrier onto the Thule Exporter height adjustable load bar. So those load bars are a little bit thicker than standard aero blade or aero boars and so that's why this kit comes with the longer bolts. It's also designed to fit the Thule Cascades Ski Cargo Box. The adapter kit comes with eight bolts and the bolt size is M6 X 80 mm.That's going to do it for today's look at the Thule Xadapt3 Load Bar Adapter Kit.

Called and spoke to Sam G at etrailer. He assessed my situation and needs, recommended the right product. I received my order quickly and had excellent communication from Sam G. I would definitely come back to eTrailer to order my roof rack or trailer needs. Thanks Sam G! 322956

The metric carriage bolts we ordered for our Thule kayak racks were not available elsewhere, and the quick service was welcome since we are ready to hit the waterways. 257925

These bolts solved the issue when there was limited thread engagement on original bolts assembling hullaport kayak carriers on aeroblade bars. I've made many trips to the water without needing to worry a nut might vibrate off. Fits nicely, performs well. Would have been hard to find elsewhere. 391872

I ordered Thule adapter bolts and was surprised at how quickly they arrived. I had intended to purchase them directly from Thule but their minimum shipping cost was [...] and their website indicated that the item "should" ship within 5 days. I found the bolts at atrailer.com, shipping was [...] and they shipped the next day. A very positive experience! 242077

I had trouble finding carriage bolts that would work for my Thule kayak cradle on Amazon and many other popular sites. After toying with search key words in Google, I finally stumbled upon eTrailer's link to these 80mm carriage bolts. Their product selection made it a simple choice as to where I would make my purchase. The bolts needed to be of a m6 diameter, which is extremely difficult to find in traditional brick and mortar stores. After receiving the product and using them on my kayak cradle, I find them to be a perfect fit for my needs and feel extremely comfortable with them to hold my equipment steady. 209296

Just what I needed. Fits the thicker rails on our luggage rack much better. 201699

I needed longer bolts to mount my Thule Summit on my VW Touareg. The OEM bars are very thick and the standard bolts are too short. These 80mm extended length bolts are the perfect solution. 153049

I have not used the product yet, but am certain it will be great. Thule wants a lot more for it and they take longer to ship for sure. 520061

These thule adapters work amazing and allowed me to attached my Criterium bike carrier to my Rhino Rack aero bars. I was afraid i would have to return the bike carriers but these adapters saved me and were very low cost. Totally worth it. 465917

Needed this to adapt a Rocky Mounts Driveshaft rack from my old truck to the new one. These fit perfectly in the channel on the 2019 Ram's 'sport utility bar', which is a Thule 393. A little more bolt length than I needed but the extra is not hurting anything... 583216

I used this adapter kit to mount Thule SUP Taxi to my Thule TracRac - TracOne racks. The original SUP Taxi mount-straps were not long to fit these racks, even though the buyers guide indicates they are. This adapter kit made it possible to secure the SUP taxi right to the bar. So glad you had this available! Now I'm ready for our trip to the FL Keys! 649238

Hats off to etrailer for carrying and timely delivery to get parts for things I need. I had these bicycle racks for a while and lost two of the adapters in a move. I couldn't even figure out how to get them from the dealer / manufacturer, but with etrailer it was easy. They are my "go to" source for parts when it comes to trailers parts and accessories. Thanks! 430690

Review from a similar Thule Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


I used this to fit an old (1994) Thule Big Mouth bike rack to a factory 1994 VW Jetta Votex roof rack. The bike rack was originally fitted to a Thule square tube rack. Fits perfect, but has many extra parts. The only parts that were needed my me were 3 square plastic tabs and 3 of the "T" bolts, so there are many left overs, but for the price I don't think I can complain much. I'm glad the kit was available. Instructions were pretty useless. 161538

Very happy to have found eTrailer. Fantasic site. Great customer service answers questions quickly and is very helpful and hands on. Havent tried product yet but looks as described and of good quality for an unbeatable and reasonable price. Wish there were more places like this. Thanks! 320778

Review from a similar Thule Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


I used the XADAPT2 kit to convert my Thule Bigmouth bike carriers to fit the OEM Volkswagen cross bars on my 2016 Jetta sedan. The bike carriers originally had clamps to fit the Thule square cross bars, and this kit allowed me to convert the carriers to fit in the T-slots of the VW cross bars. The kit was originally designed for older VWs, but the T-slot dimensions have not changed for the modern VW cross bars. I would venture to guess that the kit should work for the OEM cross bars of any modern VW rather than just the Jetta, since the VW bike carriers are not model specific. A great quality kit, and perfect for my application! 252094

Very good quality product with a little problem. Track is connected to a bracket by one bolt and the bolt was getting loose. I had to buy a little bit longer bolt, use a spring washer and washer, problem solved. See picture. Assembly instructions could be better. 524185

The Thule Bike Rack Adaptor to go from square bars to aero cross bars was an easy purchase. Otherwise, I would have had to two new bike racks. It saved me a lot of money! etrailer.com was a great place to buy the needed parts, and they were quick with shipping them to me. I watched their video on the installation, and within an hour, both racks were installed and ready to go. Thanks etrailer.com for easy transaction. 273723

The square head screws were not long enough at all. I ended up only getting to use half of my order and making my racks work by using screws from an old rack. The transition didn't go exactly as I had hoped. 429174

Review from a similar Thule Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


I used the adapter to fit a Thule Peloton bike carrier (previously used with square Thule load bars) to the factory roof rack on our Mini Clubman. The adapter works out well in this application; the only thing to note is that re-using the round-head bolts that came with the Peloton carrier with the thick vinyl-coated bracket in this adapter kit results in VERY little room to fit the nuts that hold the bracket on -- it just about works, and seems to do so safely, but it is a very tight fit. 420303
