Force XL

Thule Force XL Rooftop Cargo Box

The Thule Force XL cargo box is a great way to carry outdoor equipment such as skis and snowboards, as well as large luggage or baby gear for 3 - 5 people on your roof rack crossbars. The long, spacious box provides enclosed storage for your gear on long road trips or when traveling to sporting events.


Quick-Grip Mounting Hardware

Thule Force XL Rooftop Cargo Box mounting

Mounting the Force XL is a 5-minute operation thanks to the pre-installed Quick-Grip hardware. Just throw the box on your roof, center the clamps over your crossbars, and turn the hand knobs located inside the box to tighten them down.


These hand knobs are mounted in tracks so that they can be repositioned for Ford Flexs with shorter roofs. Simply slide the hand knobs to the desired position and give them a spin.


The Quick-Grip assemblies also include anchor points for securing your cargo. Just loop the included cargo straps through the anchor points and pull the straps tight to secure your gear.


Aerodynamic Design

Thule Force XL Rooftop Cargo Box aerodynamic design

The Force XL has a low profile and an aerodynamic shape that helps to reduce drag and wind noise when the box is mounted on your roof rack.


Dual-Side-Opening Lid

The Force XL features a dual-side-opening lid so you can access and load your gear from either side of your Ford Flex. And 2 built-in straps make it easy to lift and close the lid.


SecureLock

Thule Force XL Rooftop Cargo Box dual side opening

The cargo box has oversize SecureLocks on each side. These specially designed locks prevent you from removing the keys if the box is not properly closed and locked. This eliminates the possibility of the box coming open as you travel down the road. And the locks include Thule One-Key-System cores so you can swap them out to make all your Thule accessories keyed alike.


Rugged Construction

Thule Force XL Rooftop Cargo Box rugged design

This cargo box is constructed of rugged ABS plastic that resists impact, weather, and harsh UV rays. And The Force XL features Thule's patented AeroSkin diamond texture that distinguishes it from any other box on the market.

Video Transcript for Thule Force XL Rooftop Cargo Box Review

Today we'll be reviewing the Thule Force XL roof-top cargo box in a 17 cubic foot AeroSkin black, part number TH625. Thule has designed this cargo roof box to be used with round bars, square bars, Aero, elliptical and most factory cross bars. They've also given it a carrying-capacity of 17 cubic feet with a weight capacity of 110 pounds. It also comes with a limited lifetime warranty. The Thule Quick Grip mounting clamps allow for easy and quick installation of the box on your vehicle. Now that our box is on top of the vehicle, we'll go ahead and open up the side and then we'll show you how easy it is to install the Quick Grip clamps onto our factory cross bars. Now, the Quick Grip clamp is adjustable so that you can line up with your roof-rack cross bars. In order to install the clamps, you'll simply take your hand and twist the knob to open up the clamp.

With the clamp fully opened, you'll make sure that it goes around the cross bar as you're tightening the knob back down. Now, the box can open up from either side. The box comes with two keys that are keyed alike. In order to open the box, you'll need to place the key in the lock and turn it to the open position. There's a large handle on each lock that allows you to open it even with gloves on. Once you have the key in the lock and it's in the unlocked position, you can go ahead and raise the side of your box. Another neat feature of this box is it will not allow you to remove the key from the lock unless the lid is completely closed.

The load strap is used in conjunction with the Quick Grip clamp. There's a little slot on each side of the Quick Grip clamp that the strap can slide through. Now we'll go ahead and install our load strap. We'll move over to the other side of the box and we'll repeat the same process. That will do it for our review of the Thule Force XL roof-top cargo box, part number TH625. .

This thing is GREAT!! fits on top of my 2018 Highlander PERFECT!!! I ordered it with Thule crossbars and they are a perfect pairing!! it arrived with a small $3 piece broken and I emailed etrailer and they sent a new one out right away, after asking for pictures that I never sent! customer service was outstanding and the product is awesome! We purchased this because we have 3 kids and no cargo room in the HL when all 3 rows are in use so we needed something to go on vacation, and I didn't like the thought of hauling an empty cargo tray around in my hitch on vacation while staying in hotels! 485226

Used it to travel the Alaskan HiWay then the Dalton HiWay and back to Birmingham Alabama. It is light, sturdy, and maintained a good seal thru rough terrain and foul weather. Sometimes the locking mechanism was a little difficult, usually because we tried to put too much in it. I'm happy with purchase. 429364

Review from a similar Thule Force in Roof Box


What a great roof box the Thule Force Large Rooftop Cargo Box has turned out to be! I have used it for 3 major road trips and moves that took me from Connecticut to California. I had the cargo box packed to the max and it survived all kinds of weather (snow storms & blizzards, extremely HIGH winds, flash floods, etc.!) and all kinds of terrain. But it never came loose or gave me any problem through it all ~ and even cleans up easily of road debris, including lots of bugs! Thule makes terrific products and I own many of them, but this roof box turned out to a god-send over it's first year of use ~ especially when I moved from coast to coast ~ and still almost looks like new! And even at my age (76) I have been able to load and unload it from my SUV all by myself!! 465032

It's been a good cargo carrier. It's pretty spacious. We use it for travel from Ohio to Fla so we can get in and out of the truck without everything in the way. We've also put cans for deposit up there and stinky stuff we didn't want to smell in our vehicle in there. We've threatened the kids that's where they'll ride, too. Haha! It's easy to open since you can open it from either side. It was easy to install. No complications!! 247074

Excellent buy. It gave us room in our RX350 for my sons wheelchair. We went through the North Carolina mountains on vacation. Lots of wind, but it seemed to hold up fine. Easy to access from either side, kept everything dry and still looked nice and sleek on the vehicle. Definitely worth the buy. Kept me from renting a full size suv just for one trip for the same price. Now I can use it anytime we go on long trips in the future. 450063

Love my TH628 Thule rack. Have used it for several ski trips to get cargo so more passengers could ride in comfort BUT also found it helpful in transporting clothes for my Aunt when I assisted her with moving. Just took all hangers and laid them out in different directions. Several full closets fit in the unit! Highly recommend. 466457

i've only used the roof rack 3 times but overtime it met and exceeded my expectations. I once filled it with tools to install two toilets, and faucets in a condo in Tahoe, and it performed super, no rattling, sagging, or movement of the things inside. One thing I wish I had bought the one larger that mine, since I need more room, but other than that I love it. And would recommend it to anyone who need extra storage. BTW, it is aero-dynamic and did not cause me any engine dragging, or slow hill climbing to Tahoe. 405465

Have used several times during the course of a year on my 2012 and a new 2017 crv's. Easy to install, and holds in my view quite a volume of items. We have put in a large suitcase, 2 overhead bin type suitcases and 2 duffle bags all at one time. Have driven through torrential rain with the items staying dry. Can open from either side to allow access during travel without fully unloading to get what you need. 413109

Set up and use is a breeze with this carrier. I especially like the convenience of being able to open it from either side. Attaching the carrier to the cross bars is a no hassle task with the sliding grasping hooks and easy to turn tightening knobs. The Aero-Skin exterior and aerodynamic design gives it a good look on my 2015 4-Runner. I use it to give me extra interior space on hunting and fishing trips. 399515

We have used this for about a year. It served us well on a long drive to Disney World as well as several shorter trips to Michigan and allows our son to ride in the "trunk" (3rd row) of our vehicle. We like the convenience of being able to open the box from either side of the car. Only complaint is that if you put too much stuff in the front of the carrier, it can sometimes be difficult to close. 265489

This has been a great investment. The Thule rooftop cargo box has been a life saver when we went on our Spring Break Vacation to Oregon with four kids. We had no space for luggage after loading kids and supplies. All the luggage fit nicely in the Thule with room to spare for souvenirs we brought home. The Thule rode so well up top that we forgot it was there. 345487

Very easy to install, holds a lot of stuff and makes traveling much easier. Does not make much noise while driving at high speeds (70mph+) The fact that it opes from both sides is the smartest thing Thule did. Can fit snowboards, golf clubs, beach vacation belongings and more. 424433

Do you have a question about this Roof Box?


  • Rooftop Cargo Box Recommendations for 2017 Subaru Outback
  • All rooftop cargo boxes will generate wind noise and to some degree all will negatively affect mileage but those with the more aerodynamic low-profile shape, such as Thule's Hyper XL # TH612, will tend to be quieter and will have slightly less effect on fuel economy. At 90-inches external length this is the longest box Thule recommends for your Outback. It can handle skis up to 201-cm in length so it may be more than you need. It also weighs 53-lbs empty so keep in mind that what you can...

  • Which Cargo Box Fits a 2016 Honda Odyssey With Factory Roof Rack?
  • There are a number of Thule cargo boxes which are a fit for your 2016 Honda Odyssey with a factory roof rack. I recommend the Thule Force XL, # TH625, which has 17 cubic feet of cargo space, uses turn dials to to secure the mounting clamps to your roof rack and has a weight capacity of 110 lbs. If you need a cargo box with even more space, the Thule Motion XT, # TH6299B, offers 22 cubic feet of cargo space, a weight capacity of 165 lbs, and a dual side-opening lid with a SlideLock system...

  • Measuring to Determine Which Thule Cargo Boxes Fit a Lexus RX 350
  • Front overhang for cargo boxes is not an issue of concern. Longer boxes will overhang the front some but most boxes have adjustable feet to allow you to have the box more forward or rearward on the vehicle roof. The area of concern is the back of the vehicle. Things like antennas and rear hatch doors can interfere with the cargo box. In order to determine which Thule boxes will fit without interference you will need to take one measurement. First, if the crossbars on your Lexus RX...

  • Will the Thule Force XL Cargo Box Fit a 2015 Subaru Outback without Rear Hatch Interference
  • The Force XL cargo box # TH625 requires at least 53-5/8 inches from the bar center to the seam between the roof and hatch so it will not fit since you have 51 inches (unless you don't mind the hatch and cargo box making contact with each other which is not recommended). The Sonic XL, # TH635B, would fit because it requires just 50-7/8 inches (a tight fit). The Sonic L, # TH634B will fit requiring just 43-7/8 inches. You can also use a Pulse L, # TH615, which needs 46-3/8 inches,...

  • Comparing the Thule Force XL and Motion XT XL Cargo Boxes for a 2015 Audi Q5
  • The Thule Motion line of boxes including # TH6298B did replace the Sonic line but the design of the Motion is more angular. This is a premium box whereas the Force line including # TH625 is a lower cost line. The locking/handle mechanisms are upgraded on the Motion as well. The Force box is still an excellent cargo box and if I were choosing between it and the Motion I would probably go with the Force because you aren't giving up all that much if you do.

  • I do have a potential solution for you but since at least part of the stroller is 17 inches tall the Thule Force XL cargo box, # TH625, would not work because on the inside it is 15 inches tall. For a box that is 17 inches tall on the inside take a look at the Pro Series Bullet, # PS63150. In addition to being 17 inches tall inside it is also 69-1/2 inches long and 21-1/2 inches wide on the inside so the stroller will fit. It will be a tight fit but it will fit. This box, at 71-1/2...

  • To determine if the Thule Force XL cargo box, # TH625, will fit your 2015 Subaru Outback without hatch interference you will need to take 1 important measurement. First, if you can move the crossbars on the vehicle, move the front bar as far forward as it will go. Then measure from the center of the front bar straight back to the seam between the top of the hatch and the roof. If that measurement is greater than 53-5/8 inches the box will fit without hatch interference. I have included...

All will fit your Thule AeroBlade roof rack bars and allow full rear hatch opening without interference. I linked a video for you to illustrate installation of one of the Thule boxes.

  • Will the Thule Force XL cargo box # TH625 fit an Audi Q5 without Hatch Interference
  • I can tell you how to determine if the Thule Force XL cargo box # TH625 would cause hatch interference on your Audi Q5. You will need to measure from the center of your front cross bar to the closest portion of the rear hatch when it is open. If the distance you measured is larger than 53-5/8 inches this cargo box will fit without hatch interference. If you need something smaller you could get the Thule Force M part # TH624 as this one requires 41-7/8 inches of clearance instead.

  • Will Thule Force XL Cargo Box Fit a 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • I can't confirm if the Thule Force XL # TH625 will fit on a 2018 Honda Odyssey. The 2018 model year is a new generation as you probably already know. If you already have the van or have access to one you can measure from the center of the front crossbar back to the antenna. If the measurement is than 53-5/8 inches then it won't be an issue. Likewise, if the antenna has a low profile and isn't higher than the bars the box will sit over it.

  • To mount the Thule Force XL Cargo Box, # TH625, on your 2013 BMW X3 with the roof rails, you will need a set of crossbars that run side to side on your roof. I would recommend using the Thule AeroBlade roof rack which includes 2 aeroblade crossbars, # THARB47, the Podium foot pack, # TH460R, and the Fit Kit, # THKIT4023. This roof rack will attach to the flush mounted side rails that run front to back on your roof. You will not need anything else to begin using your cargo box. I have...

If the crossbars are adjustable move the front crossbar as far forward on the side rails as possible. Then measure from the center of the crossbar to the seam between the roof and the rear hatch.
