Thule SquareBar on Vehicle

The SquareBar Evo crossbars let you create a sturdy, reliable roof rack for your vehicle. Each bar extends past the roof rack feet to maximize carrying capacity. The bars are constructed of galvanized steel so they're durable and rust resistant, and they have a polymer coating that helps prevent your cargo from sliding on the rack. The SquareBars require a Thule foot pack (sold separately) to mount the rack to your roof. If you have a vehicle with a naked roof you will also require a vehicle-specific fit kit (sold separately).

Strong, Durable Construction

Thule SquareBar Construction

The SquareBars are made of heavy-duty, rust-resistant galvanized steel. They have a black polymer coating that provides extra grip to help prevent your cargo from sliding around while you're driving. The polymer coating also helps protect the bars against corrosion so you can leave the SquareBars on your roof year-round.

Thule SquareBar Construction

The bars have plastic endcaps that help keep out water and road debris, and they give your roof rack a finished look.

Hassle-Free Installation

Thule SquareBar Etched Measurements

Installation of the SquareBars is quick and easy, and you don't have to do any drilling or vehicle modification. The bars have bottom channels that that accommodate your Thule feet. Etched scales adjacent to the bottom channels let you place the feet in the proper location using the vehicle-specific measurements provided in your fit kit manual. Simply slide each foot to the measurement indicated in the fit kit manual, and place the rack on your vehicle.

For applications that don't require specific measurements provided in a fit kit manual - such as a raised rail - you can center the rack after you place it on your vehicle using a tape measure.

Thule SquareBar Torque Tool

To complete installation on your roof simply tighten a single screw inside each foot using the torque tool included with the foot pack. This single attachment point enables you to secure the crossbar to the foot and the foot to your roof simultaneously.

Maximum Cargo Carrying Capacity

Thule WingBar Evo SwingBlade

SquareBars are compatible with most accessories that clamp around roof rack bars, including bike, water, snow, and cargo carriers. The bars extend past the roof rack feet to maximize space for mounting accessories and carriers to your roof rack.

About a year ago we purchased two Thule Hullavator Pro kayak racks along with a Thule SquareBar Roof Rack for mounting. The combination worked out very well and we headed from Colorado Springs to Duvall Washington outside of Seattle with three stops along the way to kayak. The trip went smoothly and we appreciated the Hullavator ease lifting the boats. We have two more trips planned in the near future. We did mount the boats with cockpits down to avoid filling with water when traveling without a problem.


I've had the roof rack for a year now and we only use it sporadically in the winter to put the ski box ontop of the car but it works great. Very easy to install and remove and very sturdy. Previously I had the kind that bolted into the roof of my SUV and had a terrible experience with that (we lost the rack and kayaks on the freeway and it tore holes in my roof). The clamp style is the only kind we'll get from now on because they are much sturdier and no risk of losing them. Definitely recommend them.


Classic square bar, but modern integration with the podium feet. Exactly what I was looking for.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

These bars are great and work fine. However the connection slots are not long enough to allow the 60” bars to work on our grand Cherokee. The 60” bars would give more clearance for our Thule Hullevators when they are in the lowered position. I had to develop a removable pad system to protect them from hitting the side of the car.


Worked great on my 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan's naked roof. Carried fully loaded car topper over 8,000 miles without needing any adjustments. Easy to install. Created a significant amount of whistling/howling when driving without a topper, so I wrapped a bungee cord around the front bar and secured it to the Thule feet. Voila. No more noise.

2022 Subaru Crosstrek

Well packaged, arrived in good condition. Works as expected. Would be great to have additional fitment information available. The underside channels of the 53” bars were just barely long enough to fit Leer cap track system spaced 40” apart using the rapid podium feet (phew). Thought from the measurements there would be some room to spare but didn’t account for the angle of the podium feet.


So far so good! The ease of installation was incredible. Pop the fit kit together, put it on the bar and install. Everything is straight forward with the directions. Its even easier if you find a video of the installation. The rack definitely has a little bit of a whistle to it but its kinda expected when you disrupt the airflow. I'm going to pick up my new kayak tomorrow and couldn't be happier! Not the best photo but its all i got at the moment lol.


The bars are nice but Thule pointedly does not include under bar cover strips with this style of bars. They include these strips with the other three styles of bars they sell. Including these strips would cut the wind noise these bars produce substantially. I overcame this omission by re-using an old 5/8 inch ID (7/8 inch OD) garden hose that I cut up and slid inside the bars from the ends.

After having the rack on my car for about a year I can say the bars are still pretty noisy even with my modification. I know theyre square bars and by definition square bars are noisy but I frankly think Thules design of the feet that attach the bars to the roof is not particularly aerodynamic either and so the feet are contributing significantly to the wind noise, too. I bought square bars because I have some older roof attachments that were designed for square bars and I wanted to reuse them instead of having to buy all new ones for a different bar shape. The old attachments fit just fine on these bars so Ill save the money and live with the wind noise.


The crossbars were delivered but one end of the box was ripped open during transit.The end caps on the crossbars were missing. I called customer service and the are sending me new end caps free of charge. Good cUstomer service.

The crossbars are great. I’ve used it many times for my kayak using it with Thule kayak carrier. To eliminate the whistling sound I ed some insulation foam in each end of the bars. Now it’s totally quiet.

2019 Honda Accord

I think this a great roof rack it held a Thule box on a 2019 accord to florida but one thing I think that sucks is how much it whistles when driving besides that its great!!

Etrailer Expert

The square bars are known to whistle compared to the aerodynamic cross bars. I recommend the Thule AirScreen XT part # TH22WV to divert the wind up and over the cross bars to eliminate some of the wind noise.


As stated in my last, Thule Racks are Top Shelf. Customer service at etrailer is second to none!! ??

Pontiac Trans Sport Van

This review is about the cross bars, the towers, clamps and pads made by Thule from the etrailer site. The instructions were straightforward, and the parts were clearly identified and labelled. Installation was easy, primarily because of the availability of instructional videos etrailer provided on line. Seeing it done from start to finish made the installation quite easy and straightforward. Looking forward to using my new roof system to transport our kayak this summer! Am very satisfied.


Bars were plenty wide for my canoe,had good stiffness, worked well.



Holding up well after a year.


Crossbars arrived without end caps but replacements were shipped out promptly. Great customer service


The instructions Thule provides are not very helpful. But that's not etrailer's fault, and the provided videos did help a lot


Easy to install, great customer service.


Perfect for our 1990 Montero!

Pontiac Trans Sport Van

I bought this rack to transport my recreational kayaks and it works great! With the addition of a Llama "v" rack I'm all set to transport my 21'5" tandem. Good fun. The Thule is the base and I couldn't be happier with it!


Installation was a breeze, thanks to the videos on etrailer. These crossbars feel so much more solid than the OEM crossbars; hopefully our cargo box won't be "porpoising!"


Great instructions on etrailer made installing this roof rack a breeze. Looks and works great on my Nissan Frontier. The wind noise is not as bad as I expected, but still a little whistling at certain speeds.


Get fit!


They work OK.


Thule has always delivered a quality product. etrailer shipment was fast and detailed. etrailer web site product info is comprehensive, the best in the business.


Arrived missing two end caps. One quick call to customer service and problem solved. Thank you etrailer.


Package came damaged, 1 end cap was missing. Contacted etrailer they sent me a whole new set. Bars are great otherwise and support was great.

  • Can I Use New Thule Square Crossbars With My Old Thule Crossroads Feet
    Yes we do. The foot you have is the Thule Crossroads foot and we still have square crossbars that will fit that foot. It will also work on the raised rails of your 2022 Toyota Sienna. You will need the Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbars - Steel - 53" Long - Qty 2, part # TH712400. These crossbars are different from the old crossbars. They have a channel underneath to fit the new Thule feet, but they are backwards compatible. You will be able to use them with your Thule feet.

  • Will the Thule Hullavator 897 Work With Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars
    The Thule Hullavator 897 is not directly compatible with aero crossbars like the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars and the adapter needed to use them are no longer available. Therefore, the only option would be to install square crossbars like the Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbars part # TH712400 or obtain the new Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier part # TH898.

  • Parts Needed to Install Thule Square Bar Roof Rack on a 2018 Toyota 4Runner
    Thule recently changed all of the components of their roof racks so you wouldn't be able to take a Traverse roof rack and fit it to a 2018 Toyota 4Runner since the fit kits and other components have been phased out. So what you'd need to install a square bar Thule rack is part # TH712400 and # TH710401.

    Since your Thule crossbars have the channel underneath, they will be compatible with the Evo Raised Rail Feet # TH710401 that fit your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser with the factory roof rack. Thule recommends using 53" square bars # TH712400 so make sure your current bars are 53" otherwise it may not fit since the track underneath has a specific length. If your square bars are a different length then you will need to lay them across your roof and verify that the track underneath meets the side...

  • Installing a Box on a 2012 Toyota Sequoia to Support a Roof Top Tent
    If you are wanting to remove the factory side rails that run front to back on your 2012 Toyota Sequoia, I do not recommend doing so. These rails were meant to be permanently installed on your vehicle and should not be removed. These rails are bolted and sealed to the roof and water could leak into the vehicle if they are removed and other damage could occur such as denting and scratching on the roof. If you are wanting to remove the crossbars that run from side to side and attach to the...

  • Thule Square Bar Roof Rack for Older Thule Cargo Boxes on a 2008 Subaru Tribeca
    The brackets in your picture don't look like typical Thule mounting hardware so you must be looking at a much older Thule 600 Touring roof box. If you would like to stick with square crossbars then you need the 53" long Thule SquareBar Crossbars # TH712400 and the Evo Raised Rail # TH710401. These bars have a width of 1-1/4" and a height of 7/8". You can use these dimensions to help you determine if the cargo carrier you are looking at will fit.

    I am so sorry to hear about your issues with your Hullaport XTs!
