Video Transcript for Thule Ladder Racks Review - 2016 Ford F-150

Today on this 2016 Ford F150 we're going to be test fitting the Thule Xsporter Pro adjustable height truck bed ladder rack, part number TH500XT. This rack does have a weight capacity of 450 pounds. It can carry anything from lumber, to ladders, to conduit pipe, whatever you may need for the job site as well as water sport carriers. You can tie them down using these adjustable tie downs by loosening up these knobs. You can slide them up and down to the t track to wherever you may need. This is constructed from a nice solid aluminum and it also has a nice aerodynamic shape on the bars to ensure there's going to be less wind noise and drag while you drive. It does fit varying truck bed widths by loosening up two allen head bolts on each leg and making your adjustments. It also is adjusted by height with these quick dial knobs, which you can see these large black knobs on each foot.

You loosen those up on both sides and you can lower it to wherever you may need. You can go by these numbers on the inside, which tell you what height you're at. How it attaches to the truck bed: you're going to have two clamps per foot, on each of them and you just tighten them down, also with allen head bolts. All of them are size 7/32. Let's go ahead and show you how the last two go on here. I'm going to go ahead and open up the tailgate so you can see a little bit clearer.

This truck bed does actually come with a truck bed liner, however if your truck didn't have one, it does come with these pads that you can put underneath the feet to ensure that it doesn't scratch or mar up your truck bed rails while you install it. How the clamps work: You're going to be using the c clamps, I'm going to loosen this up a little bit more. This bracket goes on top of the screw. I'm going to lift up and under. I'm going to hand tighten it at first, get it loosely tightened, and then we'll come back with our ratchet to finish it up. That's good.

Same with the last one. You notice that this one looks a little bit different with the clamp, with this little metal piece, that is actually going to fit a lock around it, so this will lock to your bed. We have one installed up here. Going to take our ratchet with our 7/32 allen bit and go ahead and tighten it down. I guess it was a little bit looser than I thought it was.

We'll do that with the last one as well. We'll install our lock. Turn the key, it's locked up and you're ready to go. There you have it for the Thule Xsporter Pro ladder rack, part number TH500XT on our 2016 Ford F150. .

The Thule rack has met all of my expectations quality, ease of installation, and versatility. My install is on a utility trailer used for various tasks. Removing and replacing the rack takes about 15 minutes, highly recommend this product. 420392

I do a lot of online ordering, and etrailer stands out for their prompt service and rapid delivery at a great price... Highly recommendable, Good Work etrailer Staff! 42950

More expensive than other racks but I was impressed with the quality of the components, the directions and even the packaging. I wanted racks that I could adjust as low as possible to ease the loading of kayaks and just clear the cab. These adjust to just about any height you'd want in 3/4 inch increments. My only doubt is whether the C clamps that secure the bases to the bed rails might loosen over time. 465973


Comments

With a years use now on the racks, Ive been pleased with them. The C clamps have needed to be tightened once, maybe twice but I have used the racks many times and sometimes on some fairly rough roads.

Very expensive with poor bolt design for top rails. Bolts can easily fall out. Replacement bolts from Thule require the purchase of a whole package for $52. For the price expected a better design 351746

Review from a similar Thule Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


This is a fantastic product! Looks great, adjust easily. With the toolbox and ladder racks down it really gives the truck a unique look. Less than 5 minutes they can be adjusted up to carry whatever is needed. I attach my hullavator kayak cradle to it in another couple of minutes and am ready to easily load kayak. I couldn’t be more satisfied. 601832

Review from a similar Thule Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


Love these because of the adjustability. I can carry my tent lower than the roofline, or use to carry my canoe above it. The adjustable stops make it easy to change depending on whatever load you're running, ladders, plywood, a boat, etc! The black powder coat happens to match my truck perfectly. 463004

Review from a similar Thule Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


I'm an insurance adjuster with a 2017 Toyota Tacoma and this product is versatile and saves time when needing to disassemble. The Thule ladder rack was easy and simple to assemble, can be done in 304-45 minutes. I carry anywhere from 3 extension ladders and sometimes materials with plenty of room.. It can also carry up to 4 kayaks depending on how they are stacked.. I would recommend this for anyone that needs easy quick dissembling with with no racks sometimes 566462

Do you have a question about this Ladder Rack?


  • Will The Thule Hull-A-Port Work With The Thule Xsporter Pro
  • In order to mount the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier w/Tie-Downs part # TH834 to the Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH500XT on your vehicle, you will want to use the Watersports Adapter for Aeroblade/Aeroblade Edge Bars part # THXADAPT11 as confirmed by Thule.

  • Does Thule SUP Taxi # TH810XT Fit Thule Aeroblade Edge Crossbars
  • The Thule SUP Taxi part # TH810001 that you mentioned is a confirmed fit for Thule Aeroblade Edge crossbars like what you have. I attached a picture that shows it installed on an Aeroblade Edge crossbar for you to check out as well. Is it possible you have a ladder rack which uses larger crossbars like the # TH500XT.

  • Ladder Rack Compatible with Tonneau Cover on 2015 Toyota Tundra SR5
  • The Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - 450 lbs - Silver # TH500XT is not compatible with a tonneau cover because it attaches on the inside of the bed rails. Tonneau covers use that same space so the two are not compatible. If you have a tonneau that fits inside the bed rails of your Tundra, then you can use the Thule TracRac Sliding Rack # TH43002XT-610 for 6.5 foot bed or # TH43002XT-011 for 8 foot.

  • Will the Toolbox Mount Kit Part # TH41000 Work with a T-Rac Pro2 Truck Bed Ladder Rack
  • Yes, the Toolbox Mount Kit for Thule TracRac TracONE Truck Bed Ladder Racks part # TH41000 will work with a T-Rac Pro2 Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH37002XT-EX which is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado. I spoke to my contact at Thule to confirm this. However, if you are purchasing the T-Rac Pro2 Truck Bed Ladder Rack new then you will not need the toolbox mounting kit as it is included with the rack.

  • How To Secure A Kayak To The Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack
  • I do have a recommendation for you, however, Yakima does not make an adapter for the Yakima HullHound Kayak Saddles w/ Tie-Downs part Y04079 that will allow them to work with the Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH500XT. In order to secure a kayak to the Xsporter crossbars, I recommend using a set of tie down straps like the Erickson Cam Buckle Tie-Down Straps part # 05605 and foam blocks like the Malone Foam Kayak Block for Truck Racks part # MPG159...

  • Replacement Parts for Thule Xsporter Ladder Racks
  • In the instructions for Thule ladder rack # TH500XT, see link, the parts associated with # 8523163001 are the upright locking end cap # 8523166001 and crossbar end cap # 852-3214001 (which wouldn't be the part you would need). If it is not any of the parts here then take a look at the instructions link to see if you can identify the part. I have also linked all of the Thule ladder rack parts we offer. If one is not there let me know what it is and I can see if we can get it.

  • Recommended Clamps for Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack to Replace Clamp 753-3220
  • I believe you are looking for Toyota Tacoma clamps as the original clamps # 8523159001 are a universal fit for your Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Ladder Rack like # TH500XT. If you have a 2005-2015 Tacoma, then you will want # THXK3. If you have a 2016 to current model Tacoma, then you will want # THXK4. Thule part no. 753-3220 has been discontinued and is no longer available.

  • Will the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier Fit the Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack
  • In order to attach the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier part # TH834 to the Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH500XT you will need the Watersports Adapter for Aeroblade/Aeroblade Edge Bars part # THXADAPT11. The Xsporter's crossbars are too large for the Hull-A-Port to wrap around which is why you need to use the Watersports Adapter because this converts the Hull-A-Port to mount using the track system.

  • Parts Needed to Secure Kayaks and Ladders to Thule Xsporter Ladder Rack
  • The Thule Xsporter Pro part # TH500XT that you referenced comes with load stops on the crossbars already so that would be the base for how you would want to carry the ladders. If you needed replacement load stops or wanted an additional set you'd want the part # 753-3761. For straps then to hold the ladders to the rack the part # IMF12636 would be a great option as well. For a kayak carrier the Hull-A-Port part # TH834 and the adapter # THXADAPT3 would be a great way to carry each of...

  • Can a Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack be Installed in a 2018 Toyota Tacoma with Deck Rail System
  • Yes, you can use Thule adapter kit # THXK4B or # THXK4 to mount a Thule Xsporter Pro ladder rack, # TH500XT, in your 2018 Toyota Tacoma with the factory Deck Rail system! The only difference between the 2 adapters is the color.

  • Will CargoBuckle Retractable Ratchet Straps Work With Thule Xsporter on 2016 Chevy Colorado?
  • I spoke with a representative of Thule who said that the CargoBuckle Retractable Ratchet Straps IMF104933 are compatible with the Thule Xsporter for your 2016 Chevy Colorado. The Xsporter is a fit for your truck and comes in either silver # TH500XT or black # TH500XTB. It is a height-adjustable rack that uses QuickDial knobs to raise or lower the bars and has a carrying capacity of 450 lbs. I've added links to video reviews of the CargoBuckle and Xsporter for you to take a look at.

  • Thule Xsporter Crossbar Compatibility with Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier
  • The Thule Xsporter Pro # TH500XT has crossbars that are 72" long x 3-1/2" wide x 1-1/2" tall. The Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier - Folding - Universal Mount # S512 will not fit around those crossbars, however they can be mounted when using the Crossbar Adapters for Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carriers # KC-FK8 which will allow you to mount the carrier into the built-in C-channels on the crossbars.

  • Availability of the Thule Xsporter Pro for a 2016 Toyota Tundra
  • We do have the Thule Xsporter Pro available for your 2016 Toyota Tundra as long as it doesn't have the Deck Rail System. The Xsporter comes both in Silver # TH500XT and in Black # TH500XTB, and is compatible with any of the 5-1/2 foot, 6-1/2 foot, or 8 foot bed lengths that the Tundra comes with. I have attached a couple of review videos that you can check out as well.

  • Ladder Rack for a 2013 Ford F-150 with a Capacity of 500 Pounds
  • The carrying capacity of the Thule Xsporter ladder rack # TH500XT is 450 pounds which will be 50 pounds less than what you need. For a 500 pound capacity rack we have some options from Access. For an 8 foot bed use # A70590. And for the 5-1/2 foot bed use # A70490. Before using the roof top tent I recommend making sure the truck roof has the capacity for the weight you want to put on it.
