Product was correct and arrived on time. I do think that the shipping charge was a little high, but otherwise good business to work with.

Review from a similar 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!

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.

Review from a similar 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.

Not even close to fitting on the xsporter.. inch easily to short…had to go get longer bolts at the hardware store

Review from a similar Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


Adapter works perfectly on 2020 Audi Q5 (VW) But didn’t need all the xtra hardware for Thule Big Mouth bike rack. (Ca 2003) . 3 of the short bolts per unit did the trick and of course the rubber inlays to prevent scratching and rattling are perfect.

Review from a similar Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


Had everything I needed to convert a THule Big Mouth Bike carrier made for square cross bars to fit Thule Aeroblade cross bars with parts to spare. The directions seem to be for some other conversion, but it's not hard to figure out what to do for this conversion.

These work great for the Tesla roof rack. The hold my bike rack down better than the parts that came with it, and the shipping was great.

Emailer provided amazing customer service for a product that cost much less than the competition. They emailed me to confirm the order when i placed it, again when it was shipped, and then today to verify that the order was delivered. Delivery was fast and well-wrapped. This was a great purchase experience.

Review from a similar Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


Well, if you rely strictly on the Thule instructions, you're in for a real treat. I would actually claim it would be nearly impossible to install your 599XTR on aerobars using just those instructions. I ended up looking up some accompanying videos online to assist with my conceptualization of the install process. Once I figured it out, it was VERY easy to install the adapter kit and the 599XTR Wide Mouths. Nice engineering.

Yeah, top notch item. You guys are my go-to for anything rack and trailer related, for sure.

Review from a similar Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


Product quality is good. The manuals are terrible, leaving you with a lot of trial and error. etrailer sent one of the XADAPT2 packages completely open (plastic package without staples). Luckily, none of the small parts were lost, but could have definitely happened. Fast shipping and delivery.

Quite well...the larger bolts were needed for kayak racks due to a different roof rack design. It worked out great and continues to do so.

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.

I purchased the THXADAPT3 to be able to install my Thule 834 hull a port kayak rack onto the 1.5" square bar of my Adarac Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Steel with Aluminum Crossbars.
I believe it will work but I wish the bolts were a bit longer. See images.
I have been satisfied with etrailer's support and service.
Thanks

Review from a similar 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.

Review from a similar Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


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.

Review from a similar Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


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.

Review from a similar Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


Tried unsuccessfully with a phone call to etrailer to get information before placing the order on the thread pitch (thread count). Despite not getting the answer I decided to take a chance and order. These we the perfect size for my needs but the thread pitch is different so the standard Thule knob will not work on these. They are a M6 diameter but the threads are much finer, I believe a 0.7 instead of the standard 1.0. I have searched for M6 wing nuts of any brand with a thread pitch of 0.7 but cannot find any. On a positive note I did receive the shipment in a timely manner.

The product (Xadapt8) was just what I needed. Shipping was very fast, under 3 days. I have the Thule Aeroblade roof rack system and needed these in order to mount the Criterium bike rack.

  • Will I need Thule Xadapt Part THXADAPT7 for the Factory Rack on my 2000 Subaru Legacy
    As long as the cross bars on your factory rack are not wider than 2-3/4 inches and are not more than 1 inch thick, the rack should bolt on fine. The adapter you were looking at is for a certain type of Thule adjustable cross bars.

  • Solution for Installing Thule 726 Ski Rack on Larger Roof Rack Crossbars
    I may have a solution for you, however the Thule Fat Mouth Bar adapters are no longer available from the manufacturer. If you are just needing to adapt your existing Thule Ski Rack to mount onto larger crossbars, I recommend adding the Thule Xadapt7 Xsporter Load Bar Adapter # THXADAPT7. This adapter is confirmed to work with the model 726 Ski Rack that you have and will allow it to mount to your larger roof rack crossbars.

  • Thule Xadapt7 Xsporter Load Bar Adapter for Ski Rack Bolt Length
    The overall length of the Thule Xadapt7 Adapter # THXADAPT7 is 2-1/16 inches and without the head is 1-15/16 inches.

  • Will the Thule Circuit XT Fit My Factory Crossbars on My 2020 Subaru Forester?
    I confirmed with my contact at Thule that the discontinued Thule Circuit XT Fork Mount Carrier Bike Rack will fit on your Subaru Forester 2020 Aero Crossbars if the thickness of the crossbars measures at or less than 1-1/4 inches. As far as the height of the crossbars, the Thule Circuit XT fits most styles of crossbar heights. However, if you are concerned about the crossbar height on your 2020 Subaru Forester, you can purchase longer bolts with Thule Adapter Kit # THXADAPT7.

  • How To Use Thule FlatTop Ski Carrier with Thule Evo WingBar Crossbars
    The Thule Xadapt7 Xsporter Load Bar Adapter for Ski Racks part # THXADAPT7 is our best option for reusing a Thule Flat-Top Ski Carrier 91725B with taller crossbars like the Thule WingBar. These are 2" tall.

  • Will the Thule Flat Top Ski Carrier 724 Work On Volvo Crossbars
    The Thule Flat Top Ski Carrier 724 works with crossbars up to 1-1/8" tall x 3-3/4" wide. I don't have any specs on the factory Volvo crossbars but if they meet these guidelines then it will fit. If the factory Volvo crossbars are over 1-1/8" which is rather likely then you can purchase the Thule Xadapt7 Xsporter Load Bar Adapter for Ski Racks part # THXADAPT7. In summary, the Thule Flat Top Ski Carrier 724 should work with factory crossbars no problem if you get the Thule Xadapt7 Xsporter...

  • What Mounting Adaptor will Work with My Thule Ski/Snowboard Carrier on My 2015 Audi Q7's OEM Bars?
    I went ahead and sent the attached images you have of your older Thule Ski carrier to my tech at Thule. Unfortunately, from the pictures alone, he could not identify the specific rack. However, he did say that the Mounting Kit for Thule Flat Top Rooftop Ski and Snowboard Racks # 7533998 works for most older Thule ski/snowboard carriers when trying to apply to factory or aftermarket crossbars. It is important to note that these mounting clamps will only fit crossbars up to 3-3/4 inches wide....

  • Will the Thule Flat Top Ski and Snowboard Carrier fit Factory Crossbars on a 2004 Hummer H2
    According to the Thule Fit Guide, the Thlue Flat Top Ski and Snowboard Carrier, part # TH7326 should fit just fine onto the factory cross bars. I have added a link to the installation instructions below. If your cross bars measure 2 inches by 4 inches, the THXADAPT7 bolt kit will probably be needed.

  • Which Adapters Do I Need to Fit a Bike and Ski Rack to My 2015 Volvo XC70 With Factory Roofrack
    I checked with Thule and they tell me that your roof rack is not a Thule roof rack. However, that doesn't mean the hardware to connect your Thule products will not work anyway. But you'll want to measure to make sure first. I went out and measured the adapters that are made for your Criterium which are # XADAPT8. The head is 3/4 inch square and 1/8 inch thick. The shaft of the long bolt is 2-3/8 inches long and the shaft of the short bolt is 1-3/8 inches long. See the picture I've...

    When asking about mounting the Thule Flat Top 6-Pair Ski Carrier 725 on your 2008 Honda Pilot, I am assuming you are talking about the factory crossbars on the vehicle. The part you need to transfer the carrier is the Mounting Kit for Thule Flat Top Rooftop Ski and Snowboard Racks 725 # 7533998. It is important to note that these will only fit on crossbars up to 3-3/4 inches wide. I recommend measuring your crossbars to make sure they fit within these dimensions. If you discover you have...

    I can completely understand not wanting to get a whole new ski rack, and while there isn't a conversion kit for a Thule Flat Top Ski Carrier TH91725, we may have the part you are referencing. The Thule Xadapt7 Xsporter Load Bar Adapter for Ski Racks # THXADAPT7 are a fit for this carrier and are longer bolts which are designed to work on roof racks with bars that have thicker crossbars.

  • Is the Thule Snowsport Ski and Snowboard Carrier Good for Cross-Country Skis
    I'm happy to inform you that the Thule Snowsport Ski and Snowboard Carrier, part # TH32WV, is compatible with cross-country skis and also compatible with almost any crossbar. I've linked to a video review of this carrier for you to look at. Everything you need for installation is included with one minor exception: on the off chance that you are using the Thule Xsportster Bars, part # TH500XTB, you will need the Xadapt7, part # THXADAPT7, to mount this carrier.

  • Will Thule Flat Top Ski Carrier Fit on Square Bars?
    It really depends in the dimensions of the bars. For the Thule AirScreen XT Fairing # TH82WV it simply clips around bars and is a universal fit, so there should be no issue there. The Thule Flat Top was replaced by the Thule SnowPack Ski and Snowboard Carrier # TH7324, so when you're ready to upgrade, these are the ones to upgrade to. As for compatibility of your Thule Flat Top Ski Rack when using the mounting kit # 7533998, this fits crossbars up to 1-1/8" tall x 3-3/4" wide. If your...

  • Replacement Clamps for Older Thule Ski Racks
    This will depend on the specific model you have. If you have the older PullTop Deluxe (Made between 2000 and 2006), or Flat Top (made between 1996 and 2006), you'll want part # 853-2156. These are easily identifiable as they have either a square clamp-on box or no attached parts on the bottom of the carrier. If you're missing the carriage bolt, you'll need part # 915-0650-54 to replace it. You can also convert this kit to a Universal Mount with the required parts for newer, post 2006...
