if the box could slide up another inch the hatch would clear the back of the box. I have a 2017 Subaru Outback.
I just received the box today and have not taken it out on the road.

For the hatch to open fully with the box installed there must be at least 55.25 inches between the front cross bar and the line where the roof and hatch meet.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 12/28/2021
I found the toolbox easy to mount on the roof of the car, secure, quiet on the road. I wish I could slide 2 inches it further forward on the rack so that I could fully open the hatch. I have a Subaru outback.
Donald - 12/21/2022


Very sturdy construction, yet light weight and slim cargo box. I have a P3 Volvo XC70 and it fits very nicely with the rear hatch open. I like the slim design of this cargo box which should minimize the reduction in MPGs while its on the vehicle.


my rooftop carrier! It was perfect for our golf clubs. etrailer was wonderful. Great communication and it arrived on expected date.


Love it. Fits perfectly on my 2014 Outback and 2017 Town and Country.

Easy to install and uninstall.


I like that you can not remove keys without locking. No accidentally driving off with it being shut but not locked.

Outstanding. Ive used it five times, one to two week trips. No issues in rain. On our last trip we were caught in heavy winds and snow. I did have snow accumulation inside. Speed of vehicle and wind must have forced the snow inside. Ironically Ive never had rain, under similiar driving situation, enter the carrier. After I got our stuff out I was unable to lock the carrier. Melted snow refroze in locking lugsnot the key lock did not freeze. The temperature never approached freezing....the high that week was about -5. So I took the carrier off and the same came out a few days the ice in the lug areas meleted. I was able to lock it and make it home, two days of driving, with no issues.

The folks at your company where thoughtful, helpful and thorough. Thanks for everything and keep up your wonerful customer service. The Thule Pulse Alpine roof cargo box has been great!


It was what I expected with a feature that I didn't expect. The quick mounting clamps make it very easy to attach.


The Thule Alpine turned out to be a great choice. It fits all of our roof racks and is easy to adjust. More room than expected and the low profile is great if you have a larger SUV.


arrived in a timely manner, freight company called to set up delivery, am satisfied with my purchase. Would buy from etrailer again!

Pod works great, got the long version 210cm, fits shovels and other tools, kayak paddles and our skis. glad I got it, keeps my truck bed free of awkward shaped things to pack it better. Got it during covid, took a while but worth the wait. etrailer is a great company Ive bought stuff from them before and will again.
Philip A - 12/15/2021


The product is good, a bit pricy for what you get but etrailer seemed to have the most competitive price around. The service and delivery is second to none and makes me keep coming back for my vehicle needs. I have had too many bad experiences with shipping items like this from the (online big tech store), but etrailer's delivery/carrier service is excellent every time!


Perfect for vehicles with limited space between bike carriers for mounting. This was the narrowest clam shell I could find. Fits 2 inflatable stand up paddle boards plus more. The only tricky thing with this unit was figuring out how to change the lock core (it's a different process than other Thule products) to match my other locks on the vehicle, but the etrailer video on this topic came to the rescue.


First, there we’re complications with the delivery which I caused and eTrailer reps worked with me and worked it out. Second, All products purchased fit and installed rather easily on my 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK. This outcome was a result of working with one of their reps to get the right in-stock parts that fit right. Finally, I reviewed installation videos which helped me get the job done right the first time.


Came earlier than expected not damaged. Customer service was excellent and the pod is working out great!


Great rack. Low profile fits on Toyota Highlander into standard height garage. Stays on all winter for skis plus a couple times throughout the year for other trips. Fits at least four pairs of skis.


great service and product


Great product and great service.


Everything as advertised. Thanks!


Great product. Great company. Reasonable delivery time. Would do business with e-trailer again! Thanks


Love the low profile.= less wind resistance and better mpg. Lock keeps valuables safe and dry. Exactly what I wanted.


Faster than expected delivery! Great product and price!


It’s OK. The lock seems weak. Time will tell.

  • Will Thule Pulse Alpine Roof Cargo Box # TH613 Fit 2013 Toyota Rav4 Without Interferring With Hatch
    Yes! The Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo box # TH613 will fit your 2013 Toyota Rav4 without interfering with your hatch. When installing this cargo box there are a couple of points to keep in mind. First is that the minimum crossbar spread should be 23-5/8 inches. If your crossbars do not move to accommodate the installation, the attachment points inside the cargo box have an adjustability of about 8 inches. Secondly, this cargo box has a weight capacity of 110 lbs. Either your owners manual...

  • Will the Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box Interfere with the Rear Hatch on a 2014 Subaru Forester
    I spoke to my contact at Thule and she told me that the best way for you to determine if you have enough clearance would be to open the hatch on your 2014 Subaru Forester and measure from the crossbar back to the nearest portion of the hatch. If that distance is greater than 26 inches then the Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613 should fit without interference. The reason for this is that when the rear mounting bracket is slid into the rear-most position it measures 26 inches...

    The Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613 is confirmed to fit the factory roof rack on your 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee without modifications or adapters. Thule confirmed the roof box to be a fit for your vehicle. I have attached a review video of the Pulse Alpine # TH613 box on a similar Grand Cherokee with factory roof rack for you. When we test fit this box to the vehicle showing in the video, we found that the rear hatch did make contact with the rear of the cargo box when fully...

  • Can a Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box be Mounted to Round Yakima Crossbars
    A Thule cargo box like # TH613, will fit on Yakima round crossbars. Usually, on a cargo box page, in the specs section we will list compatibility. For the Ascent 1100, it fits Thule standard, Rapid Aero, AeroBlade and Xsporter load bars; Yakima bars; and most factory-installed luggage racks. Also make sure to check the owners manual for the capacity of the roof and do not exceed it.

  • Cargo Boxes That Will Clear Rear Hatch of 2011 Subaru Outback
    In order to determine your clearance, you will need to do some measuring. The Thule Pulse Alpine, part # TH613 offers 24 inches of rear clearance. If the distance from the middle of your rear roof crossbar is more than 24 inches, you will have sufficient clearance to open the lift gate. Yakima provides their clearance information in a different manner. They recommend you slide the front crossbar all the way forward (if it is moveable) and measure rearward to the hatch/roof seam.

  • Recommended Roof Box For 2011 Subaru Outback With Limited Space Above Roof Rack
    I called my contact at Thule and asked about the roof boxes and where the measurement is made in the description. They told me that the measurement is made as if the box was sitting on a flat table to the highest point on the cargo box. From the measurement you said you have for clearance from the top of your roof rack on your Outback, the Thule Pulse, part # TH613 would be too tall. You would need a box that has a shorter measurement.

  • Which Thule Roof Box Will Allow Rear hatch To Open Fully On 2015 Toyota 4Runner
    To make sure a roof box allows you to open the rear hatch fully, you can take a quick measurement. Move your front crossbar forward as far as it will go and measure from the center of the crossbar back to the seam between the roof and the rear hatch. That is called 'Front Clearance'. I have attached a chart that gives you the front clearance requirement for the Thule roof boxes we offer. For example, the Thule Alpine, part # TH613 needs a front clearance of 55-1/4 inches. And will fit...

  • Will The Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box Fit a 2013 Mazda 3 Hatchback without Hatch Interference
    To determine if the Thule Pulse Alpine cargo box # TH613 will fit your 2013 Mazda 3 without hatch interference you will need to take a measurement. Measure from the center of the front crossbar straight back to the seam between the top of the hatch and the roof. If that measurement is greater than 55-1/4 inches, the box will fit. The Pulse Alpine measures 25-1/2 inches wide so it is possible, depending on the usable width available on the crossbars, to mount an additional item. However,...

  • Will Thule Cargo Box # TH613 Fit 2013 Volkswagen Jetta With Factory Crossbars
    In order to make sure you choose a roof box that will work on your 2013 Volkswagen Jetta, you will need to take a measurement. You will need to know the crossbar spread, or the distance from center to center of the crossbars on you roof. For the Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box, part # TH613, the minimum crossbar spacing is 23-5/8 inches and the maximum spacing is 35-3/4 inches. If your crossbar spread is between those numbers, the # TH613 will work well for you. I have attached a...

  • Roof Top Cargo Box Orientation Recommendation for Minimum Wind Resistance on Vehicle Roof
    I would recommend you orientate the Thule Pulse Cargo Box # TH613 as far to the back of the vehicle as you can when installing it on your roof if you are looking for the best aerodynamics. This will reduce air from getting underneath the front of the box while at highway speeds. I attached a review video for this box as well.

  • Best Crossbars Factory or Aftermarket to Mount Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box on a Ford Explorer
    The Thule Pulse Alpine cargo box # TH613 is designed to fit round, square, aero, elliptical and most factory crossbars so it does fit well on all of those. There are some exclusions though so I would need to know the year of your Ford Explorer to determine if the box fits the factory or dealer bars. The best fit is going to be on Thule bars since they are testing primarily on their bars so that doesn't mean the box will not fit well on other bars too. I did check on a 2014 Ford Explorer...

The crossbar spread will need to be a minimum of 23-5/8 inches maximum spacing is 35-3/4 inches. If your crossbar spread is between those numbers, the # TH613 will work well for you. See the diagram to the right. The Thule # TH613 has measurements of 88-1/2 x 25-1/2 x 12-1/2 inches which is within the 23-5/8 and 35-3/4 inch spacing needed to fit your 2011...

  • Does Wind Fairing Help Ski Rack Stop Whistling so Much
    A wind fairing really won't help to stop the noise coming from a ski rack, as it won't direct the air flow over the rack. The whistling is likely mostly coming from between the bars where it clamps onto your skis, but also on the top of the ski rack. While any accessory on top of your roof is going to make some noise, if you really cannot live how bad the whistling is (like on longer trips), then the only other thing I can think of would be to stop using the ski rack and instead put your...

    Measure from the center of the front crossbar back to the rear hatch seam on the roof of your 2004 Subaru Forester. If that dimension is larger than 55-1/4 inches then the Thule Pulse Alpine part # TH613 would allow the rear hatch to open.

It looks like they may have updated them at some point and we didn't make the needed change. I sent an update to have the correct size listed.
