Video Transcript for Thule Rod Vault ST Rooftop Rod Carrier Review

What's up everybody It's AJ with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna be checking out the Thule Rod Vault. It's gonna be good for getting the fisher rods out of your car and up on your roof. That way on long trips, not getting in the way of the kids or anything like that. They're not flapping around the front of the vehicle by your face. You just want them up there.

They can be completely baited with the reels on them still, up and out of the way. Let's take a closer look at it. Having your rods in your car is the easier way to go. With the short trip, it's not so bad, but in the long run, if you've got your kid here in the seat and you got the rods, it's kinda dangling right over their heads. You got some hooks on here or some weights.

You don't want them messing with anything. It'd be better just to go ahead and put them over in the roof. So that's what this is really for. Showing you this rod as an example, you can't break it apart and break it down. You have to store it at its full length like this, which isn't a problem with the Rod Vault.

I can just slide it in. We stop right where the reel makes contact with the back of our compartment here. There's plenty of room though. You could actually put a couple more rods in this tube and that tube. It says it holds up to six, but I think it really depends on the reels at the end here.

Right now they're not touching. They're completely out of the way. Let's see, let's take this one out. See how easy it is to fit them in the same one. So that's a good example to see you can fit two rods in there. The reels are facing two different ways. That way, they're not gonna touch or get entangled or cause any problems. I wanna point out the handle here too. How you see it pokes out of the back of the container here. That's okay because it's back is curved, giving you a little bit more room in there to go ahead and just shut it, and it's all good. Telling you what it does is great, but you wanna know if it's gonna fit the ride you already have. So I'm gonna call my friend Jonathan up here to help me out. We're gonna measure it to give you exactly what it is. So it's gonna accommodate fishing rods up to eight feet. Not only is it gonna help you keep your rods up and out of your vehicle, it also keeps them safe. Let's say you load in here, you need to run somewhere. You're just gonna leave them on top of your car. It does lock. It comes with the keys included. See Can't push it down. Can't get in there. They're locked up real tight. You get two keys. You can keep one on your key ring. Put one in your car. It opens up that easy. It's a nice metal latch here. So it's not like it's some piece of plastic. It's gonna last. It's heavy. So it's a good lock. Inside, it's lined with polypropylene. So it's gonna keep not only the inside protected, but also your rods too from getting scratches or anything like that. Up here on the roof, just wanna show you how it attaches. We have a factory style roof bar set up. It fit around there no problem. We put one of the clamps underneath, one on top, and then drop the bolts through with the washer. And I tighten them by hand and came back with a ratchet and tightened it down further. You can see I'm shaking it back and forth, moving the whole vehicle. So we don't have to worry about it coming off, when you're going down the road. It's fully firmly tight there. It's not going anywhere. You also have covers on the top, and you can just rotate over and see this loop here. Extra security, you can add a padlock. Just to keep anybody from messing with it. I'm actually impressed overall with the rod vault's construction. It's made out of a nice anodized aluminum. It's got a weight to it. You hear me knocking on it. You're gonna hear the weight kind of, if that makes sense. It's not like a PVC pipe that's really light, where I hit it and be a hollow sound. It's nice and heavy, and that means there's not gonna be a lot of movement from up front when you're driving on your car. I've worked with some of the other ones that are made out of maybe not such a heavy duty material. So they did have a lot more movement up front while you're driving. And since there's just rods in there, there's nothing really weighing it down. The back end here is made out of reinforced nylon. So you can hear how durable that is. It's gonna hold up just as well as the aluminum up front. Last but not least, another great feature this has with the three different mounting options. You should be able to get your rod holder up far enough and not lose any access back here at the tailgate. It's gonna come close, but still, I've got full access back here. So you're not sacrificing anything on the back end of your vehicle. And it's really easy to install. Let's check out how we did it. Before we throw it up on the roof, let's kind of look and see what we're gonna need to set it up to do so. We're using factory roof bars today, and we went ahead and measured it ahead of time. So we wanna about 30 inches apart. So that's about what we're looking at for that. Now, if we wanted to have more space in our crossbars, it all depends on what your factory or your vehicle has, or you have aftermarket ones. We could also do a T-track attachment over here. This bracket will slide in like that. That way, you have more space between if the bars are further apart. We're not gonna need that today, but I just wanted to show you that is an option that's nice and secluded right here in the bottom. You don't have to add anything extra to it. So let's move up here and show you what we are gonna use. When you get it, it'll come in two pieces like this. Let me see the threads are in there. So that's gonna go on the top, which we haven't flipped upside down. So it looks like the bottom, but it's actually the top. And this part will go in the bottom here. You see the holes. These are gonna be where we attach the clamps at the bottom. Just run this through. Turn to the side. And we use a ratchet with an extension and a hex head at the end. Because it is kind of down in there, So I couldn't really get an Allen wrench in there and turn. You'd be like turning just very little by little. This helps us get more turns out of it, and get it installed faster. You might need to put your hand down there, and push up on this bottom bracket so that the threads will start going in there. And once it starts grabbing, you also don't want to tighten it down too much. 'Cause you want this to be able to move so you can spin this over and you can add a lock there. That acts as a cover. Now with this loosely installed, we're gonna figure out the spread from clamp to clamp. We already measured our factory roof rack up there in our vehicle. It's about 30. So we go from center of this one. We lock the tape measure in. We're good about here. I move it to 30. And since I left it not installed tight, I can move it across. Let me get that readjusted. looks like we got it spot on. So this is where we're gonna want it. Now I can tighten it down more, and then we can throw it on the roof. Then I got an extra set of hands here that's actually gonna help me throw it up on the roof. We'll just set it in the clamps on our bars, and I'll hop up there and get it attached. When it comes to attaching it to our factory roof rack, I went ahead and did this one first. You can see what it looks like fully installed. Now I'll go through the process. Drop the bolts down through the holes in the top with the washer on there too. On both sides. And there's threaded holes here in the clamp that we'll just get them started in. And make sure your clamp's like this so the indention is underneath. That's around your roof rack. Really easy to get started by hand like that. Then we come back with the same ratchet. Hex that in, and fully tighten it down. Try and do it evenly on both sides. When it's tightened, you just move the covers over. With the other three clamps tightened down, we're done. It was a really easy installation. Just those four clamps. You set your bars in place once, you don't ever have to do it again as long as you're just using this. You can just throw it up there and tighten it down. The only thing is, I needed a second set of hands to lift it up and put it on the roof. But otherwise, fairly simple. That does it for a look at the Thule Rod Vault. Hope this helped..
