2022 Ford Maverick

Please see my review of Thule risers this Fit Kit was used with, as well as, Flint Hill basket. Same pic below as there. Weakest element of this item are the clips that fit into slots to secure it to - whatever - in my case, a Retrax Pro, manual Tonneau cover on the bed if my truck. See pic. Hard to visualize appropriate, secure placement. Seem to be working, but major test to come.


Thule website really hard to navigate for correct fit kit for my Leer cap trac. etrailer thank you


The item arrived on time, was cheaper than I found it anywhere else, and was even better than described. Installation was extremely easy and almost fun. I have never been disappointed with any purchase I have made with etrailer. Thanks for the great customer service and support staff ! Regards,

Duane J.


After using this system for about a year I am very impressed with the fit and quality. Very durable and I have gotten a lot of use out of it. I would definitely buy again and recommend it to all of my friends nd family.

2013 Ford Transit Connect

Glad I found you guys! I ordered a Thule Fit Kit for my vehicles' roof rack and received it right away. Happy with the product and your service! Thank you, I'll be shopping with you in the future.



roof rack is still great thanks!

Toyota Tacoma

Received the packages quickly. Included everything needed to get the Thule Roof Rack set up on my Tacoma's Snugtop (the actual rails for the rack and the feet come as separate items). The Thule system was compatible with the Yakima sliders on the Snugtop, and setup was a breeze. Installed within an hour. Looks and fits great. Thanks.


Great fit! I had purchased a Leer Cap for my pickup with the Thule Tracks but never ordered the feet for the cross bars.

I contacted Etrailer to figure out what I needed to get, because Thule's website is difficult to navigate.

I got an email response, with what items and part numbers I would need. Such great customer service! Thanks again!!


We had tracks installed with our new Leer topper. Couldn't get the Thule part #'s from Leer or the dealer, but etrailer knew exactly what we needed to order. Order showed up correct and quickly, and Installation went smoothly.


Everything about this kit fit and installed as intended and has served me well on the cross bar mounting application on my pickup bed cover. I would give this kit a 5 star review save for the fact that Thule makes their equipment both expensive and needlessly complicated (IMHO). It was a bit of a search to find crossbar mounts and their mounting kits for this application. It is also a bit of a process if I need to move the bars' positions to accommodate loads in the bed. But perhaps that serves as a deterrent to unplanned removal. This setup does now afford me the ability to load the bed of the pickup with camping gear (and keep it under a bed cover), AND store the bikes above the gear.

2012 Mazda 3

Used these to mount my Thule bicycle rack atop my Leer bed cap. Greatly increased my recreational equipment load capability and installed pretty easily. I would highly recommend getting a tire step for installation and for loading any gear you put way up on a bed cap if your truck doesn't already have some step system.


This item was ordered along with another Thule product. Both were extremely easy to order and very fast delivery.

2006 Ford F-150

E-Trailer has become my first choice for parts. They know what it takes to make the system work, in my case Thule Rack system, as well has have the part. Most other Thule Dealers don't have a clue.....


The staff at e-trailer were very helpful in finding the right parts for my new truck topper!


Absolutely love it!! Solid. At first it was difficult to install but I loosen the screws and nuts all the way so I could get them in the rails. Very satisfied. Thanks E.


Good instructions and easy installation.


See my top rack review.


Easy to install- pop them with a mallet or piece of wood


Great quality, just the wrong conversion feet for my existing rack feet.

Service and willingness to help and advise was outstanding. Anthony is Da Man!!


Great product, works as advertised. Very easy assembly.


I have used etrailer several times and have always been very satisfied. I find the staff typically have more knowledge then the manufacturer. Prices are reasonable and delivery is fast. No complaints what more would I need.


Everything fit properly and was easy to assemble Thanks

2004 Ford Expedition

Exactly what was needed, was quick to find on their site and a great price.


Products were delivered in perfect condition as expected.


Fit perfect in the tracks. eTrailer shipped same day within house. VERY happy


Awesome. thank you!!

See what our Experts say about this Thule Roof Rack

  • Is a Crossbar Spread of 21 Inches Too Small for my Thule Square Crossbars?
    I talked to my contact at Thule, and the reason why the two fixed mounting points are crossed off is because the wind resistance to anything mounted on those front points can cause the cargo to shift on the bars. As far as the use of the 21 inches on the second and third points of your Transit, Thule recommends users to avoid crossbar spreads of 24 inches or less. The reasoning behind this is the concern that the cargo might shift unexpectedly. With that being said, as long as the cargo...

  • Covers for Thule Fit Kit for Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet 3101
    The Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet - 3101 # THKIT3101 does not have the covers available separately. You will need to replace the kit to get the covers.

  • Should My Thule Podium Roof Rack Be Removed In The Winter?
    Hello Carol. That is definitely an interesting question. It is certainly not normal for the crossbar to slide back like that. Something must have come loose at some point which allowed the bar to slide back in the track. That is really the only explanation since the podium feet and fit kit are literally bolted together. As far as what specific event caused it to move, it is really hard to say. Perhaps the car was parked at an angle which caused it to slide back slowly over time? Maybe that...

  • What Replacement Bolts do I Need from # THKIT3101?
    As far as replacing the missing bolts from the Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet # THKIT3101, I confirmed with Thule that unfortunately the fit kits come pre-packaged from the manufacturer in Europe. Sadly, the only way to replace the missing bolts is to buy a complete new kit.

  • Parts Needed To Install Old Square Thule Crossbars on RetraxPRO Tonneau Cover
    What you need to install your old Thule crossbars to the RetraxPRO is the Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet # THKIT3101. In addition to the fit kit you will need the Thule 460 podium feet. We no longer carry these since they are discontinued so you will have to track some down. The two together will allow you to mount the rack on the rails of your RetraxPRO.

  • Are Replacement Washers Available for Thule Fit Kit 3101
    Actually I spoke with my contact at Thule and she informed me that they do not carry replacement parts for their fit kits. I wish I had something better I could offer you, but your only option would be to replace the entire fit kit with a new part # THKIT3101.

  • Recommended Size Thule Crossbar for Roof Track 35" Apart
    The Thule AeroBlade Crossbars are discontinued but we do offer the Thule Evo WingBar Crossbars. The longest option we offer that will fit the 35" spread (left to right) for the track is 50", part # TH711300 which has a 9-3/4" long channel on each side for the foot to sit in.

  • Tie Down Anchors that Will Fit Unknown Tracks on a Lance Truck Camper
    I recommend using # S604 which sounds very similar to what you are describing. These have the flat track bolt as well that will fit the same slot as the Thule ones you have mentioned. So if the dimensions of the Thule one will work then these will work too. Many of the T-slots in tracks/load bars have the same or similar dimensions and are compatible with each other's accessories.

  • Is the Track Nut for Fit Kit 3101 the Same as for the TK1
    Yes, the track nut used for the Thule Fit Kit # THKIT3101 is the same one that was used for the discontinued TK1. If you are just needing to replace the track nut then we have it available as part # 853-2106 on our site.

  • What Replacement Parts are Available for the Thule Fit Kit # THKIT3101?
    I have an answer for you. As far as the replacement parts for the Thule Fit Kit for Thule Podium Style Roof Racks - 3101 # THKIT3101, those components are unfortunately not sold individually. This is because since Thule fit kits are designed for specific applications on specific year/makes/models of vehicles, Thule does not individuate the # THKIT3101 components. As far as the compatibility of rail systems made by Rhino-Rack or any other crossbar manufacturer, it really depends on the...

  • Recommended Crossbars for a LEER XR100 Camper Shell On a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    It sounds like you already have Thule tracks on your camper shell and are looking for a set of crossbars that'll work with it. If that's the case, then I recommend checking out the Thule TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack for Camper Shell/Truck Cap # TH29200XT. These crossbars measures 69" long x 3" wide x 1-1/4" tall, has a 500-lbs capacity, and is made in the USA.

  • Roof Rack Needed for Cap/Camper on a Ford Ranger
    Are you looking for an adjustable ladder rack or one that you install in a specific spot permanently? Either way it actually is a custom fit that the customer gets to pick where they would like everything to sit. Typically you will see the legs of the roof rack near the corners of the truck cap/camper, but it can vary depending on the application. For the 6' bed on your Ford Ranger I recommend the Thule TracRac CapRac Ladder Rack # TH29200XT which includes 65" long crossbars. The weight...

  • What Is Crossbar Distance Needed For Roof Rack Paddleboard Carriers
    There is no preferred crossbar spread listed for the paddleboard carriers we offer. They do however list the minimum crossbar spread at 24-inches. This is the minimum distance needed for part # TH811XT and # Y04075. Both carriers have weight capacities and crossbar dimensions, so you want to make sure you select the right carrier that will work for you. If you want to let me know what roof rack system you are using I will be glad to make recommendations that will work.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 1995 BMW 8 Series
    The only roof rack system we have available that is confirmed to work on your 1995 BMW 8 Series is the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B. This is a unique system that uses 6 vacuum cups to mount the crossbars to the roof of the vehicle. These are heavy-duty vacuum cups that actually have a pull strength rating of 210 pounds (per cup!). The weight capacity of the roof rack itself is 150 pounds. It looks like the relative small size of your BMW's roof is what is preventing standard...

    Thule just recently changed their square crossbars so if you have an older set of square bars that do not have a channel on the underside of them for mounting to feet you'll need to go with an all new kit. The older foot design is not available either. You'll need the fit kit you mentioned of part # THKIT3101, the rapid podium feet kit part # TH460R and then for square bars part # TH712500 for 60 inch crossbars and you'll be able to install a Thule square bar roof rack in the channels...
