Video Transcript for Thule Load Straps Review

Today we'll be taking a quick look at the Thule load straps in a 2-pack, part number TH523. These load straps have a wide variety of uses from securing your kayak here on the roof of your car, or also securing a load in a cargo basket. It's made of a heavy-duty polypropylene material which is strong, durable and corrosion resistant. It's 1 inch wide by by 15 feet long and it is good for double-wrapping your cargo. The way that these straps are designed is it is a cam buckle design and you can see that there are not hooks on both ends of the strap, which means you have to take the strap back around your load and hook it back into the buckle, which basically cuts the usable length of the strap in half, so about 7 1/2'. Also included are these rubber bumpers. These rubber bumpers are going to go over the silver cam buckle. You can see here, we already have our kayak all loaded up.

This rubber piece is going to protect the cam buckle from digging into the plastic of our kayak. Also, what other gear that you have, it's going to protect it from any scratches, abrasions and protect any painted surfaces. Now over here on the back side of our kayak, we're ready to install the straps to secure our kayak to the kayak rack. Basically what I'm going to do is unravel the strap and then I'm going to slide the bumper down onto and over the silver cam buckle. So we'll take the one end of the strap and insert it through the larger opening in the rubber protective bumper, and we'll pull it out the other side. We'll just pull this all the way out completely over the cam buckle, like that.

Everything's all, basically, the whole entire cam buckle is completely surrounded by this rubber protective pad. Now what I'll do is I'll insert one end of the strap through the back side of our kayak rack. Then I'll throw this over the top, being careful not to throw it too far so it doesn't hit the top of your roof, then I'll throw the remaining strap over. I'll just repeat the same process for the back side. Now we're on the other side of our kayak and we'll bring the strap around the underside of our cross bar and take it back up to the cam buckle. We'll need to push back on the rubber bumper to expose the cam buckle, push down on that tab, insert the end of the strap through the buckle and pull it tight. Then, you can pull that rubber protective pad back down over the buckle. Then with the strap tight, we can go ahead and secure the excess strap.

Then, we'll just repeat the same process for the back strap. Now that we've got our kayak all loaded up and secure using the Thule load straps, that will complete today's review of part number TH523. .

I like the padded cam buckles. These are useful if you need to keep a load from flopping around, but only get as tight as you can pull. No ratcheting. Hold the buckle, push down on the lever plate (not shown in picture) and pull. Slide the pad over the buckle. 563239

Exactly what I needed to add to my Thule carrier for my canoe, adding to the straps that came with the original purchase. Finding these in-stock at local retailers was not successful. Thankfully eTrailer came through again for me. Super fast delivery, excellent and accurate descriptions online and I really appreciate the product videos eTrailer does (although I didn’t need a video for this purchase). 651736

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Basket for 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Top
    We do have a large selection of roof cargo baskets that will work great on your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited but first you will indeed need to add a roof rack system with crossbars to support the carrier. For this I recommend the Thule Square Bar Rack because it will provide you with a sturdy system (165 pound weight capacity) and a rugged appearance that looks great on Jeep Wranglers. This system consists of # TH712500 for the two 60 inch Square Load Bars and # TH300R for the Gutter...

  • Will the Thule 865XT Fit the Infiniti QX60 Crossbars?
    The Thule Trail XT Roof Cargo Basket - Aluminum - 63" x 39-1/2" x 7" - 165 lbs # TH865XT will fit your Infinity QX60 as long as the crossbars are at least 23-5/8 inches apart on center and as long as they are not more than 1-3/4 inches tall by 3-1/2 inches wide. Those dimensions are larger than most factory crossbars as well as aftermarket bars so you shouldn't have an issue as long as the spacing is greater than 23-5/8 inches. The cargo weight will be restricted by your roof rack as...

  • Can Two Thule Hull-A-Port XT Kayak Carriers TH848 Be Used On a Factory Roof Rack
    The Thule Hull-A-Port XT Kayak Carrier part # TH848 is about 20" long while set up. However, there also needs to be space to allow for the upright as this is not perpendicular with the base. If you have a factory roof rack on your Rav4 then most likely you will run into issues trying to use two of these. That said, if you have an aftermarket roof rack in which the crossbars extend out past the mounting feet then you could probably attach two if you were attach one set of clamps on each...

  • Kayak Carrier and Roof Rack for a 2000 Viking Legend Pop-Up Camper
    There are a couple options for a rack to carry kayaks with your 2000 Viking Legend. The SportRack Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack # SR1020 will fit campers that have a maximum width of 85-1/2", and from my research it looked like your Viking has a width of 85", though you may want to double check with a measurement to confirm. The SportRack has a weight capacity of 200 lbs and permanently bolts onto your camper, as does your other rack option. The Swagman Roamer LT Roof Rack for Pop-Up Campers...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Cargo Basket for 2016 Jeep Cherokee with Naked Roof
    You can absolutely install a roof rack system on your 2016 Jeep Cherokee that does not feature the factory side rails. For the completely naked roof on your Cherokee, I recommend looking at the Rhino Rack Vortex Roof Rack System. This system consists of # RRVA137B-2 for the two 54 inch Vortex Aero Crossbars, # RRRLKVA for the 2500 Series Legs, and # DK398 for the Custom DK Fit Kit. This will give you everything you need to install a complete, aerodynamic roof rack on your Jeep Cherokee....

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for Two Old Town Loon Kayaks on 2016 Dodge Durango With Factory Bars
    I checked with Thule and so long as you have the factory crossbars installed on your 2016 Dodge Durango the Thule Hull-A-Port XT Kayak Carrier # TH848 will fit on the rack. The Hull-A-Port will work with kayaks that are over 10 feet like your Old Town Loons and yes it WILL hold two kayaks when you use it in the vertical or post-style position; the kayaks will be placed on their sides. If you forward to about the 8:00 mark in the linked video you can see how two kayaks work with this...

  • Recommenations for Transporting a Canoe with a 2016 Chevy Colorado Extended Cab
    I can help you find a way to transport your canoe with your 2016 Chevy Colorado. If you wanted to get a ladder rack to transport your canoe I recommend the TracRac # TH37002XT-EX it fits both 5 foot bed or 6 foot beds, and would double as a way to transport your canoe. This TracRac is a no drill application so it would be removable, it also includes a over-the-cab extension if your canoe is extra long. Another option would be to get a hitch mounted load extender like the Thule Goalpost...

    We can help you with canoe carrier options for your 2013 Nissan Frontier 4x4 crew cab so you can save the canoe rental fees and feel like you're "at home" when on the water at your canoeing destinations. The Darby Extend-A-Truck Canoe Carrier # DTA944-968-924 is certainly a complete and cost-effective option since it includes both a hitch-mount T load support and a single bar roof rack for the Frontier's cab. The advantage of this setup, apart from cost, is the wide stance you get to...

  • Recommended Roof Basket for 2018 Chevy Suburban with Factory Roof Rack
    We do have a large selection of roof cargo baskets that will work great with the factory roof rack on your 2018 Chevy Suburban. A lot of what goes into selecting the right roof basket for you will depend on exactly what and how much of it you are intending to load into the unit. With that being said I really like the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket # TH859XT. This is a really sturdy basket that features a couple of sleek design choices that contribute both to its function and its...

  • Which Roof Rack and Multi-Kayak Carrier can be Used With a 2012 Mazda 3 Hatchback?
    We can get you set up to transport a pair of 10-foot kayaks on your 2012 Mazda 3 hatchback. For a roof rack, I recommend going with the Yakima; it has aero crossbars, # Y00425, which are used in conjunction with the Landing Pad # Y00233 and Skyline Towers # Y00148 that install onto fixed mounting points on your Mazda's roof. To transport your 10-foot kayaks on the Rhino Rack, you can use the Thule The Stacker # TH830. It mounts directly onto the crossbars and utilizes a combination...

  • Will Thule Cargo Basket and Rhino-Rack Cargo Basket Fit 2015 Toyota 4Runner With Factory Crossbars
    Yes, both of the roof baskets you asked about, the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB and Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket # TH859XT will fit the factory crossbars on your 2015 Toyota 4Runner. Between these two options I strongly recommend the Thule Canyon basket because it has a larger space to carry your cargo than the Rhino-Rack, can be locked with Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450400 while the Rhino-Rack does not have that option, and comes with a lifetime...

These cargo baskets will allow you to mount a roof top bike rack on top of the basket so you can still bring your bike with you.

  • Are Additional Tie-Downs Needed For the Thule Stacker Part TH830
    The Thule Stacker part # TH830 can be used to hold up to four kayaks if you have space for this. It comes with tie down needed for one kayak. Therefore, if you have two kayaks then you would also need the Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes part # TH855XT and the Thule Load Strap Cinch Straps part # TH523. If you want to save some money you can use a different brand for the tie-downs, the Malone Bow and Stern Tie-Down Kit part # MPG306 and the Malone Cam Buckle Load Straps with Buckle Protectors...
