Mounting Diagram

Pulse Large

The Thule Pulse Large cargo box is a economical 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.

Easy-Grip Mounting Hardware

Mounting the Pulse Large is a tool-free operation thanks to the Easy-Grip hardware. Just throw the box on your roof, insert the Easy-Grip clamps into the rubber-lined mounting slots in the bottom of the box, center the clamps over your crossbars, and turn the knobs to tighten them down.

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

The Easy-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

The Pulse Large 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.

Single-Side-Opening Lid

The Pulse Large features a single-side-opening lid so you can safely load your gear from the passenger's side of your vehicle. And a built-in strap makes it easy to lift and close the lid.


The cargo box has an oversize SecureLock on the passenger's side. This specially designed lock prevents you from removing the key 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 lock includes a Thule One-Key-System core so you can swap it out to make all your Thule accessories keyed alike.

Rugged Construction

This cargo box is constructed of rugged ABS plastic that resists impact, weather, and harsh UV rays. And the matte black finish adds a touch of style when the box is mounted on your roof.

Video Transcript for Thule Pulse Cargo Box Review

Today, well be reviewing the Thule Pulse line of rooftop cargo boxes. Weve laid out all three boxes in the Pulse line and as you can see here, the difference between them is the size. The Pulse Alpine cargo box, part number TH613 has a carrying capacity of 11 cubic feet. As you can see, its longer, making it more suited for carrying larger items, like skis.Next, the Pulse large cargo box, part number TH614. It has a carrying capacity of 14 cubic feet. Finally, we have the Pulse XL cargo box.

Part number TH 615, which has a carrying capacity of 16 cubic feet. These cargo boxes are an economical way to carry anything from groceries and gardening equipment to small duffle bags and carry-on luggage. The easy grip mounting hardware allows for simple, tool-free installation onto your rooftop crossbar.To mount your Pulse cargo box, simply place the box onto your crossbars and insert the easy grip clamps into the rubber-lined mounting slots in the bottom of the box. The mounting slots are on track, which allows you to position the clamps over your crossbars, even if your vehicle has a shorter roof. Keep in mind, the crossbar spread must be a minimum of 23-5/8 inches.

Once you have your clamps positioned properly, simply turn the hand knobs to tighten them down and your box is secure.Well now show you what each of the boxes look like on the roof and how they interact with the rear cargo door. First, is the TH 613 Pulse Alpine. Now, as you can see, because of its extended length, the cargo door on this particular vehicle does come in contact with it. Keep that in mind before you make your purchase, as it may interfere with entry into your cargo area. Next is the TH 614, the Pulse large and finally, the TH 615, the Pulse XL.

Notice that neither of these, when positioned correctly on the roof, will come in contact with the rear carpet door.Each of these boxes have an extremely low profile and an aerodynamic shape that helps to reduce drag and wind noise when your vehicle is in motion. They feature a single-side opening lid, so you can safely load your good early anesthetic response from the passenger side of the vehicle and include a built in strap that makes it easy to open and close the lid. The cargo boxes also have an oversized secure lock on the passenger side. This specially designed lock prevents you from removing the key if the box is not properly closed and locked to eliminate the possibility of your box coming open as you travel down the road. The lock includes a Thule one-key system core.

You can swap it out to make all your Thule accessories keyed alike.Now, these are two load straps included with the cargo boxes that connect to the built in anchor points on the easy grip hardware to secure your gear in the box. The Pulse line is constructed of rugged inaudible 00:03:32 to resist impact, whether in harsh UV rays and the matte black finish adds a touch of elegance when the box is mounted to your roof. Each box has a carrying capacity of up to 110 pounds. They are made in the USA and come with a limited lifetime warranty. Now that weve gone over some of the features and specs of the Thule Pulse line of cargo boxes. Well load up some gear our TH 614 and show you how they look driving down the road.

Thule Pulse Large Rooftop Cargo Box - 16 cu ft - Matte Black - TH615

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (11 Customer Reviews)

76 x 33 x 16-1/2. This aerodynamic, low-profile cargo box holds outdoor equipment and large luggage for up to 5 people. The Easy-Grip clamps let you mount the box to your roof rack without tools, and single-side-opening lid includes a lock.

Purchased for our 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee and after multiple uses we have no regrets. The price was good; the Thule Cargo box is surprisingly light, I was able to lift it over my head onto our Jeep fairly easy. The box does only open on one side and given the height of our Jeep, that was an issue when we mounted the box center line on the Jeep. We've since started mounting the cargo box on the right side, so using a step I can easily reach any cargo inside. The two straps for securing cargo are useless and we ditched them for Bihlwerflex bungee straps. Much easier to install and use. The clamps that secure the cargo box to the rails are great, makes the mount/secure process a breeze. I do a walk around and check everything whenever we stop and the clamps have always been secure. 655697

Very nice rocket box. Roomy, lightweight and well built. My wife and I put both sets of golf clubs in it with room for smaller stuff like shoes and clothes. It turned out to be just what we were looking for. 409218

1 year later - this box is excellent! Mounted on a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Rhino Rack (PSP) aero bars also bought from etrailer but seemingly no longer available here (they're really good if you can find them elsewhere). Box sturdy, not too noisy, and a breeze to mount and take off unlike some of the less expensive models. Holds a large amount of stuff and is long enough for our skis. Waterproof too - has been through torrential rains and snows. TL;DR - solid buy, recommended! 596400

Does what I need. Ready weather right compartment for luggage and great. 368111

Thule roof box has worked perfectly. It is very easy to install on and remove from our vehicle. it rides well on the car top both with and without items in it, very little noise. Holds a lot of items, perfect for moving a college student to and from campus which was our primary purpose for purchasing it. Would highly recommend this product. 405518

The delivery was right on time as the common carrier arranged. I wish the carrier would have taken the pallets from the delivery. I will be using the carrier for hauling my "golf" equipment. The carrier will suffice for this chore. 721658

- TH615

The products are as good as can be expected and always fit and work. I will always use etrailer for towing stuff. But the BEST part of doing business with these people it the videos. The save a ton of time and frustration when installing this stuff. 696582

Review from a similar Thule Pulse in Roof Box

We were only able to use the carrier for two trips before the key broke off inside the lock. We took it to a local locksmith who was able to drill it out to get it open, but we cannot secure it or use it now. We called your customer service line beforehand but were told there was no solution. So, we still have it but cannot use it. Sorry such a large expense so quickly down the drain. 630952


If the cylinder that holds the lock core was undamaged, you can simply replace the lock core. You can get a matching lock for the one you already have as part # THLOCKN070

Review from a similar Thule Pulse in Roof Box

This box worked perfectly on my 2016 Acura MDX with the factory rails. The clamps that secure the box to the rails are adjustable. Fortunately I am tall and loading and unloading the box doesn’t pose an issue. I used the box for a camping trip and a vacation where I needed free space inside. There wasn’t a significant drop in gas mileage or issues when I traveled at 70 mph. 635483

Do you have a question about this Roof Box?

  • Comparing the Thule, Yakima, and SportRack Swinging Bike Racks for a 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
  • The compatibility of the bikes rack that you listed is going to be dependent on what trailer hitch you have installed on your 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. That said, most of them do not sit too far behind the bumper so you should not have any issues with this. If you don't already have a trailer hitch, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13200 which I can confirm will work with the Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack part # Y02465, the Thule Apex Swing XT 4 Bike Rack part # TH9027XT,...

  • Low-Profile Rooftop Cargo Box for 2016 Mazda CX-5
  • Most rooftop cargo boxes are fairly tall, in the range of 14- to 18-inches. A few are slightly shorter and a few are slightly taller. Some boxes, such as the Yakima RocketBox Pro 11 # Y07193 and the Thule Motion XT # TH6297T, have recessed mounting points on their bottom surfaces where the roof rack bars will fit. This is shown in the linked photo and helps reduce the total added height of the box. Other rooftop boxes like the Malone Cargo12 # MPG901 do not have this feature. An excellent...

  • How to Carry Cargo on Factory Roof Rack of 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL
  • There is a way for you to transport cargo on the factory roof rack of your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL, but I checked with both Thule and Yakima and there are no cargo boxes that are going to fit the factory rack; the reason for this is the very large spread of the crossbars on the factory rack for the '19 Santa Fe XL. The good news is you can utilize a cargo basket and cargo bag which will allow you the same 16 cubic feet of cargo space as using the Thule Pulse Large Rooftop Cargo Box...

You can use the cargo box without this clearance but it will limit the access to your hatch.

To do so, I would first need to know if your 2017 Volvo XC90's roof has side rails on top that are raised or if they are flush to the roof (basically, if there is a space underneath the rails on top of your roof or not). If you can get back to me with that info I can get you exactly what you need.

The Pulse L # TH615 does have the length you need without being too long. On the inside the box is 72 inches long, 76 inches long on the outside.

Therefore, yes, this roof box will work well for you.

  • Determining Fitment of Roof Cargo Boxes on a 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan with OEM Crossbars
  • A lot of the rooftop cargo boxes have adjustable settings to accommodate a wide variety of crossbar styles and spreads (distance between the centers of both crossbars). To confirm if one will fit and allow you to fully open your rear hatch of your 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan you will first want to adjust your forwardmost crossbar as far towards the front of your tiguan as possible.

The AeroBlade Edge are made to be the quietest of racks and have a WindDiffuser strip inside the T-slots which reduce the amount of wind noise you experience while also providing a cushion for your rooftop-mounted cargo box. I do recommend using the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450400 to lock the rack to your...
