The Thule Rapid Traverse foot pack is the ultimate vehicle-specific base rack, providing the strongest hold, the most accurate fit and the easiest installation of any rack on the market.

AcuTight Tensioning Tool for Thule Traverse Foot Packs

The Traverse towers - or feet - hold the bars to the vehicle more securely than other towers by implementing Thule's patented MaxClamp technology. The towers are tightened to the vehicle using the integrated AcuTight tensioning tool. These devices indicate when the feet are safely and properly attached to the vehicle, and they store conveniently inside the towers when not in use.

EasyClick Bracket Attachment snaps brackets into place with a click

The towers mount to your vehicle using vehicle-specific clips (sold separately) that snap into place on the towers in seconds with Thule's EasyClick bracket-attachment system.

OneTouch Bar Lock provides easy rack system setup

The Traverse offers a handy OneTouch bar lock lever, allowing you to set the rack position once during the initial installation. The bar lock then holds your load bars in place so that you never have to position them again - even when removing and reinstalling the rack.

Video Transcript for Thule Roof Rack Review - 2016 Acura MDX

Today on our 2016 Acura MDX, we'll be doing a test fit of the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System, using part numbers THARB53 for the aluminum 53 inch crossbars. Part number TH480R for the foot pack. Part number THKIT for the fit kit. We've already got the front one installed, as you can see here. The way we did that, is we got the measurement from our instructions, we put it all together, and we measured up from the corner of our windshield, up to the side of our foot pack. We did that for both sides, tightened them both down evenly with the included hardware.

Now let's do the rear one together. For the rear one, we've got one side done already. We'll do the last one together. Let's go ahead and grab . our foot pack. We'll open up both sides, like so.

We'll start with our pad. We're actually going to place this on bottom, and we're going to push it in place. Make sure that it gets seated all the way around. That looks pretty good there. Then we can take our clamp, now you need to refer to your instructions to make sure you have the right clamp, because the front and the back differ.

We're going to slide it up through here . until it clamps into position, like so. Then, we'll come over to our aluminum load bar, and we're going to flip it upside down. You'll need to make sure that you have the scale set here. You can find that in your instructions.

Once that's set, we can go ahead and take off the end cap. Grab our foot pack, and we're going to slide it on though this channel here. We'll slide it all the way on until it meets with the scale, right about there. Once we're there, we can close it up. Then we can head over to our vehicle. Let's not forget that end cap, of course. We'll need to make sure that our rear doors are opened up. In some cases it's not a bad idea to get an extra set of hands . but we're just going to set it in place gently . and it shouldn't be a problem. We're just going to set it in a general area . of where it needs to be. Then we're going to grab our little tape measure. According to our instructions, we need to be 28 inches from the center of the crossbar to the center of the other crossbar. Let's go ahead and do that now. Take our little tape. Center to center, looks like we're a little bit far there. Looks pretty good. Now let's do the same thing for the other side. Center to center. A little bit too far there. I'd say we're perfect. Head back on over to you. At this point we want to make sure that our clamp comes down underneath our door jam here, and sits nicely there. Now let's grab our tool. We'll want to begin to tighten this down. As we're tightening, we'll want to make sure that our pad is seated . flat as you see there . on top of our vehicle. As we're tightening, we also want to make sure that the clamp draws up underneath. We're not going to tighten it down all the way just yet. Let's make that the other side is the same way, and then we can tighten them down evenly. Head back over to this side and then we can tighten them down. Once we've got it nice and secure . we can then close it up . and do the same for the other side. We've got it tight, and do the same thing there. Like to show you that the tool that comes with it can actually be stowed within the tower . when not in use. With that being said, that's going to complete our test fit of the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System, on our 2016 Acura MDX.

I purchased these with the aeroblade bars for my ford flex. Installation was pretty straight forward and everything was pretty snug when I was done. The built in torque wrench is pretty handy and a nice touch from thule. Thule products are pricey but built pretty well and I think are worth the money. 96155

I have had this Thule set up on my 14 Elantra GT with a panoramic roof for one year and all I can say is bravo! It stays on during the carwash and I have zero wear and tear on it. I have a 2 year old and a newborn, It makes road trips possible with luggage. I have a feeling I will still have these when I need to move my kids to college. etrailer.com has been great! I will definitely make this my go to site for this category of purchase. 523343

Thank you for following up Rachael. We love these products. We are using them this Memorial Weekend. Makes it so easy to carry both my kayak and my wifes SUP. There is room for both and they are easy to secure. When we go camping with our travel trailer it leaves room for other things to be stored in the bed of my pickup. Thanks again and God bless!

2014 Volvo S60


We ordered the entire Thule AeroBlade system a year ago for our 2014 Volvo S60. We ordered the system to use with the Yakima FrontLoader Upright Bike Mount, knowing we wanted a rack that didn't require removing a wheel every time we used it. At the time of ordering, Yakima didn't offer an adequate bar system for our vehicle, so we went with the Thule AeroBlades after doing some research on compatibility. After a year, we are very happy with our Thule system. Set-up was fairly easy for two people (I wouldn't recommend doing it alone) and all directions were clear. We chose the AeroBlades over cheaper systems because of the potential for noise reduction, as well as durability. We're very happy with our purchase and have had no issues so far. It has remained securely fastened to the Yakima rack. Two negatives, which others may have mentioned: the rack interferes with our satellite radio system at times and the rack does create some wind noise when we open our sun roof. Otherwise, the noise is not an issue when it is closed. Overall, we would completely purchase it again, particularly for use with the Yakima FrontLoader. 497353

The rack and the associated video instruction for installation were perfect! The rack arrived quickly and the installation was simple and flawless. Within an hour of receiving the rack it was being pressed into service! The price was the best I could find on the internet - that combined with the video instructions will have me buying from you folks again for our next vehicle. 294455

The transverse foot is the most complicated, and most important, part of the rack system, but was simple to assemble and install. I spent about an hour with assembly and installation of the complete system, and I wasn't in any hurry. The feet provide a solid interface between my car and the rack, and the rubber pads protect the car finish. The AccuTight tool is especially helpful because it provides a torque indicator to ensure proper tightening of the foot bracket. The tool remains inserted in the foot after installation, with a tool for each side of the vehicle. The feet contribute to the overall beauty of the rack system by their smooth contour. 272652

2005 Ford Focus


I ordered a Thule roof rack fit kit, Aeroblade along w/ a Curt roof rack for my 2005 Ford Focus. We were a family of 5; and now we are 4, we had always traveled in our larger Toyota 4-Runner, which had enough room for everyone and their luggage. Now that we sold the 4-Runner and have only the smaller gas saver, it presented a problem for travel. I ordered the roof rack for our trip to Gatlinburg, TN. It worked fantastic. The shipping was fast and made it to us in time for us to install it. We were able to install it in about 20 minutes after watching the installation videos on etrailer.com. It was able to accommodate all 4 of our large suitcases and freed up leg room to provide a more comfortable trip. The Aeroblades were very quite. We are very pleased with our purchase and would recommend this to anyone who asks. 333722

The instructions are terrible and I ended up with leftover parts that aren't listed anywhere in the documentation. Once you get the feet attached correctly and if you can do it without breaking your car or the foot they are great. 130562


Comments

Thank you for purchasing this Thule product. The extra parts you received are probably the end caps for our older Rapid Aero load bars. We always packaged the end caps with the foot packs until we introduced the AeroBlade load bars. The AeroBlades have the end caps included. During the transition time between the discontinuation of the Rapid Aero bar and AeroBlade bar we decided to leave the old end caps in the box, just to make sure we didnt short change any of our Rapid Aero customers. If you have no use for those end caps you can discard them as you choose. Thanks!

It’s OK, The product is well designed and does the job, but looks a bit clunky on our all-black Jeep Grand Cherokee. This retro-fit option does not have a sleek, streamlined appearance like a factory install. If you’re going for a sporty look, then you will probably like this product. 590120

The whole process of ordering a roof rack for my new car was simple. Just needed to decide which bars I wanted to buy, all the fitting and sizing was taken care of by the website. The package arrived on time. I spent maybe 2 hours puzzling through the directions, assembling the roof rack and attaching it to my car. By going slowly and rereading the directions numerous times, I think it got it right the first time. It was used to carry a canoe yesterday and did everything it was supposed to do. Completely adequate! 508212

Sturdy, nice looking, easy to install and remove, has not marked or damaged the car in any way so far. I use the rack for carrying a large, heavy, aluminum canoe which it holds securely. My only concern is that the rubber wear strips got a bit torn up from moving the canoe around on them as I was centering it. Also the assembly instructions could be much clearer, I ended up doing quite a bit of trial and error. 501444

This review really applies to the whole package not just this component. Well made excellent quality product. Racks are very solid and fit my application perfectly (2016 Ram 1500). Installation wasn't hard and the directions reasonably easy to follow. However some of the installation dimensions appear to be off. Price seems competitive with other brands, however it seems like a lot of money for what you get. 333678

  • I spoke with my contact at Thule who verified that they have not run into any problems with fitting one of their roof racks to a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude. The problem may be as simple as if you don't have the E Group Package and he was trying to fit a roof rack that is only compatible with the E Group Package.

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee With Flush Black Roof Rails
  • The roof rack I recommend for your 2015 Grand Cherokee is the Thule WingBar roof rack. This roof rack has aerodynamic aluminum crossbars that are some of the quietest on the road. To order the roof rack you will need part # TH711500, part # TH480R, and part # THKIT1656. The WingBars are also available in black, part # TH711520.

  • What Size Thule Crossbars are Needed to Use the Hullavator Kayak Carrier on a 2016 Honda CR-V
  • The length Thule roof rack crossbars needed to use the Hullavator # TH898 on your 2016 Honda CR-V depends on the type of roof the vehicle has. If your CR-V has the flush side rails that run front to back on the roof then you will need the 47 inch bars # TH712200 as well as foot pack # TH460R, and fit kit # THKIT3118. If your CR-V has a naked roof with no side rails or crossbars you would need the 53 inch bars # TH712400 along with foot pack # TH480R, and fit kit # THKIT1691.

Your configuration isn't quite as popular so there aren't quite as many options for a roof rack but there is still the very nice Thule option that consists of the Aeroblade option part numbers # TH711520, # TH480R, and # THKIT1656.

If your flush mount rails have a metal strip on top of the rails then you have the E Group rails and you could install a roof rack like the Thule WingBar Evo Roof Rack which consists of the crossbars, part # TH711400 for Silver or part # TH711420 for Black, the Podium foot Pack # TH460R, and the Fit Kit # THKIT3142. If, however,...

  • Replacement AcuTight Tool for Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack Feet
  • It sounds like you are missing or otherwise in need of the Thule AcuTight tool, # 752-2352-002. You might be able to use an Allen wrench in a pinch but I recommend replacing the tool. I do not recommend using any other tool for installation though because you could easily over-tighten the screws. The AcuTight tool has a little built-in torque indicator to let you know you have it at the right tightness.

  • 2013 Ford Edge w/ Vista Roof Roof Rack Recommendation
  • For a roof rack that has been confirmed as a fit for your 2013 Ford Edge with the Vista roof the Thule Aeroblade rack part numbers # TH711420, # TH480R, and # THKIT1530 has been confirmed as a fit. The Thule rack does use the door clamps for installation, but due to the design of your roof this is the only way that is available that will work. If you contact Ford you can most likely have them install a set of raised rails on the vehicle so that you could go with the Aeroblade Edge...

  • How to Determine if 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit has E Group Package for a Roof Rack
  • If your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has the roof rails with chrome that runs down the middle of the rail then you have the E Group package. If you don't have the E Group the rails will be entirely black. The picture I've attached shows the chrome of the E Group package. For your Jeep I suggest the Thule AeroBlade roof rack. If you have the E Group package it consists of: 53 inch WingBars # TH711400 (silver) or # TH711420 (black) Podium Foot Pack # TH460R Fit Kit # THKIT3142 If...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk with All Black Flush Roof Rails
  • Since the roof rails of your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk are solid black that means you don't have the E-group rails like you mentioned. So for a Thule roof rack we have the Aeroblade roof rack part numbers # TH711520, # TH480R, and # THKIT1656 which is a confirmed fit and the nicest option we have for your vehicle. The bars are aerodynamically shaped which means you'd have minimum wind noise.

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendation for a 2013 Hyundai Elantra Gt w/Panoramic Sunroof
  • I spoke with several of our roof rack manufacturers and Thule was the only company that said they had a confirmed fit for your 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT with the panoramic sunroof. For a rack similar to the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59740 that you referenced you would want the following components. Thule AeroBlade Load Bars # TH711420 Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack # TH480R Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit # THKIT1695 I asked if you would still be able to open the sunroof with this...

  • Best Roof Rack Recommendations for a 2014 Ford Escape
  • The best roof rack we carry for your 2014 Ford Escape is the Thule Aeroblade roof rack that consists of part numbers # TH711420, # TH480R, and # THKIT1737. This will be very easy to install, will be the quietest, and will affect gas mileage in the least amount. I attached an install video that shows this rack being installed on a 2014 Escape just like yours for you to check out as well. The Rhino Rack roof rack that you referenced, part numbers # RREB137B, # RRRLKVA, # RREB-FK1 ,...

  • Roof Rack Options For 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan With Naked Roof

  • Rhino Rack Roof Rack # RRRVP27 Compatibility With 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude
  • On your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude, the Rhino Rack # RRRVP27 is compatible with your vehicle as long as it has the E Group package. This E Group is distinguished by a metal strip on top of the flush side rails. If your vehicle does not have this metal strip the length of the rails, it will not fit. If you have the non-E group rails, that are normally black topped even if there is meal along the side, I recommend the Thule Roof Rack consisting of the Thule WingBar Load Bars...

  • Comparing Thule and Rhino-Rack Roof Racks for a 2011 Nissan Maxima
  • In terms of protecting the vehicle finish, both the Rhino-Rack and Thule systems install by using specially designed clips to fit the vehicle and the towers rest on pads. As long as the bottoms of the pads and the vehicle roof are clean when installing, you should not have a problem with the finish on the vehicle. Both systems also will be about the same in terms of installing and removing. You will have to do some careful measuring when you first install the systems. After that removing...

  • Roof Rack Fit Recommendation for 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT with Panoramic Sunroof
  • There aren't a whole lot of options for a roof rack on your 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT with the panoramic glass roof but I was able to get a confirmed fit from Thule. You would need the fit kit part # THKIT1695, for crossbars the part # TH711420 and then the foot pack part # TH480R. We normally don't recommend opening any type of sun roof on a vehicle with a roof rack installed as the wind noise is pretty intense from the crossbars. Yes we do test fits at our location here in Wentzville,...

  • Roof Rack Options for 2006 Land Rover Range Rover HSE Sport SUV
  • According to my research your 2006 Land Rover Range Rover HSE is the Sport Edition. For this particular vehicle version the Rhino-Rack roof rack you referenced is not a fit. I have linked our main page for roof racks for your Range Rover HSE Sport. The two available rack systems from Thule include both square and AeroBlade crossbar options. Both of these racks will fit the Sport edition with no existing roof rails or crossbars and both offer a 130-lb maximum load capacity. If you...

  • Thule Square Crossbar is Stuck on Rapid Traverse Foot
  • Using the integrated tool inside one of the feet you will loosen the nut and that should loosen the grip on the bars. If it is seized on there then there is likely some corrosion inside. You will need to take the end caps off of the bars and spray some WD40 inside. Let it soak for about 15 minutes and then try again. Repeat as needed!

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • It is a little confusing, but the difference is basicly that the E-Group has chrome flush mount rails and the Jeep without the chrome (all black) is without the E-group. The distinction is different things fit the chrome or non-chrome flush rails. For the E-group rails, I recommend the roof rack consisting of The AeroBlade Edge # TH7602-TH7602 and the Fit Kit # THKIT3142. Without the E-group (all black), I recommend the Thule rack consisting of: Thule AeroBlade Load Bars - Aluminum...

  • Is Short Roof Adapter # TH487 Needed for Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack on 2003 Mini Cooper
  • Yes, your particular vehicle, the 2003 Mini Cooper, does require Thule's Short Roof Adapter # TH487 in order to install their AeroBlade roof rack system. This complete rack system consists of the following parts: # THARB47, # TH480R, # THKIT1366 and # TH487. The AeroBlade system offers the quietest rack option thanks to its aerodynamic-shape crossbars that generate far less wind noise than typical round or square bar racks.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2018 Jeep Compass and 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Both with Flush Rails
  • For your 2018 Jeep Compass, you will use the crossbars # TH711220, legs # TH480R , and fit kit # THKIT3164. You will also need locks # TH450400. For your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will use crossbars # TH711520, the same legs # TH480R and locks # TH450400, but different fit kit # THKIT1656. You can use the same crossbars if you don't mind the longer crossbars on your Compass, but the fit kit will not be compatible between vehicles. You will need the custom fit for each one.
