Video Transcript for Thule Roof Rack Review - 2016 Toyota Highlander

Today, on our 2016 Toyota Highlander, we're going to be test fitting the Thule roof rack system. Consisting of part numbers: THARB53, those are the aeroblade load bars, part number TH460R, those are the podium foot-pack kits, and part number THKIT3134, those are going to be the mounts that we're going mount or actual foot-packs to. We already have the front one installed. As you can see, it mounts to fixed points on your vehicle. The bar, itself, has a nice aerodynamic shape that's going to cut down wind noise and drag. Combined with the other roof rack, you're going to have a carrying capacity of 165 pounds. Although, you want to double check with your manufacturer specs to make sure that your vehicle can withstand that kind of weight. Let's go ahead and show you have the rear one goes on.

First off, you're going to want to remove this cover piece, on the rear, there's going to be one on each side. You just take a screwdriver, there's these two small slits here. Screw driver in and you just, kind of, lift up. It'll, kind of, pop up as we go here. It pops out, like so.

You just put it in your glove compartment to be installed later. We'll repeat this on the other side. Next, we're going go install our mounting bolt. You'll see that it has two ends with threads on it. You want the end with the larger threads to go into our mounting point here. It screws in.

To tighten it down, a nice feature of this kit is that it will come with the tightening tool. All right. Again, we'll repeat this on the other side. Next we're going to go ahead an assemble the feet. To do that, we'll take this metal bracket here, it's labelled. We'll just slide it into our foot pad here.

Same for the other. Make sure that the pre-drilled hole lines up with that hole. Okay. Now I'll actually go ahead and set them on the vehicle and we'll tighten them down using these nuts here. Go ahead and set out foot on top, making sure that that goes through. Taking our nut and just screwing it down into place. Get it snug and we'll use our included tightening tool to finish it off. Now I can move on to our actual load bar. Take our podium foot, this T portion here, we'll actually slide that into the T slot at the end of our bar. There's no set measurement, right now. We'll go ahead an set that onto our predetermined points on our vehicle and we'll actually tighten them down that way. These are Allen head bolts, and the kit also comes with a tool to tighten those down, as well. Like I said before, we're just going to loosely put them on for now, so that we can still adjust our bar. We'll repeat this process on the other side. One of the advantages of this roof rack system is that you don't have to worry about crossbar spread because everything is, pretty much, set for you. One thing that you do have to be concerned about is your crossbar overhang. That's going to be, how far it sticks out past your podium piece. There's a couple of ways to do this, you can either measure or you can eyeball it. I usually do a combination of both of them to get them as close as possible. With that completed, now we can take our included tool and we can tighten these down all of the way. As you tighten these down, they will also grip around the T slot, on the inside, to keep the bar from moving around, as well. We can now place the covers on the ends of our foot packs. With these ends here, you can actually knock out these plastic portions and replace them with block cores and make them all keyed alike, to make your roof rack nice and secure on your roof to prevent theft and tampering. Just push on, like so. We'll just use out screwdriver here, and now they're locked into place. There's a lot of accessories that you can put on your roof rack, at this point. Anything from cargo baskets to cargo boxes, to kayak carriers, bike racks, ski carriers, a wide variety of things. Just be sure that you do not exceed the weight limit that is set forth in your manufacturers instructions so that you don't damage your vehicle. There you have it. The Thule roof rack system on our 2016 Toyota Highlander.

Do you have a question about this Roof Rack?


  • Roof Rack for 2018 Toyota Highlander to Carry Thule Roof Box
  • The Thule Atlantis 1800XT will fit Thule roof racks which is what I recommend for your 2018 Toyota Highlander because it offers you a unique combination of function, strength and style while remaining very quiet and easy to use. The correct roof rack is going to depend on if your Highlander has a naked roof or has flush-mounted rails that run front to back. If you do NOT have those rails and instead has a naked roof the Thule roof rack you need to mount your Atlantis roof box consists...

  • Lowering the Overall Height of a Yakima SkyBox on a 2017 Toyota Highlander with a Factory Roof Rack
  • I may have a solution for you, however the only real way to lower a Yakima SkyBox's overall height is to replace your roof rack system, and this may not create much of a difference. Your lowest rack option for the 2017 Toyota Highlander is the Thule AeroBlade Edge kit, consisting of: Thule AeroBlade Edge Bars, part # TH7603-TH7603 Thule Edge Fit Kit, part # THKIT3134 This kit measures about 3 inches tall all together when installed, and you'll want to compare that to your current...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2015 Lexus GX460 with Flush Rails
  • Yes, Yakima did have a fit for their Railgrab roof racks for the flush rails of the 2015 Lexus GX 460. That being said they no longer make the Railgrab and we are out of them. What I can recommend for you is similar Inno roof rack that consists of part numbers # INB127, # INTR, and # INTR134 that is a fit for your vehicle and is currently in production.

  • Fitment and Compatibility of Thule Hullavator Pro on a 2014 Toyota Highlander with Factory Crossbars
  • I have a solution for you but your factory crossbars are not going to be long enough for the Hullavator to be compatible with and we do not have an adaptor to extend your current crossbars. I spoke to my contact at Thule and he informed me that to make the Hullavator # TH898 compatible with your 2014 Toyota Highlander your roof rack crossbars must extend past the vehicle or the carrier will contact the side of the vehicle when its lowered. I recommend a whole new roof rack system....

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Toyota Highlander with Flush Roof Rails

This rack has aero bars that mount flush with the feet of the rack to give you a very low profile look.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Highlander with Factory Fixed Points on Roof
  • For an OEM looking roof rack that is confirmed as a fit for your 2019 Toyota Highlander with factory fixed mounting points for a roof rack we have the Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack part numbers # TH7603-TH7603 and # THKIT3134. The crossbars of this kit fit flush to the feet of the rack and are aerodynamically shaped so you'll get the OEM look you want with minimal wind noise as well.

  • Thule does have the parts you need to mount the WingBars onto your 2015 Toyota Highlander as long as the bars you already have a the correct length. If your Highlander has the flush mounted rails on its roof then the correct parts are the Rapid Podium feet, part # TH460R, with the fit kit, part # THKIT3134. The proper bars are the 53 inch WingBars, part # TH711400 for silver or # TH711420 for black. If you don't have the rails then you actually need the 60 inch WingBars instead, part...

  • Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack Fit on 2016 Toyota Highlander Limited w/ Sunroof
  • According to my Thule representative, the presence of the sunroof won't interfere with the installation of the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack, but they don't test to see how far the sun roof will open. The # TH7063 AeroBlade Edge crossbar is 38-1/4 inches long by 3-1/8 inches wide and 1-1/8 inches thick. The rack consists of the # TH7603-TH7603 crossbars and the # THKIT3134 fit kit.

  • The roof rack I recommend for your 2014 Highlander with the flush mount rails on the roof is the Thule AeroBlade roof rack. This roof rack features aerodynamic low-profile crossbars that are very quiet when installed on the roof of your Highlander. This roof rack uses the fixed mounting points on the roof of your vehicle.

  • Recommended Thule Roof Rack for 2 Thule Hullavator Pros on 2018 Toyota Highlander
  • The system you need consists of the foot pack # THKIT3134 for your fixed mounting points. Then you will need to use the Thule Podium Foot Pack # TH460R because the square load bars have been discontinued by Thule. This combination will allow you to use the Thule WingBar # TH711420 for your X-Cargo roof box. For two Hullavators # TH898 I recommend the Thule ProBar # TH713700 which can be cut to the custom length needed.

  • How Easy is it to Remove a Thule Roof Rack from a 2015 Toyota Highlander with Flush Side Rails
  • Removing a roof rack in the winter is an excellent practice, nice work! Removing the bars and feet from the roof of your 2015 Toyota Highlander will not be difficult at all. There are only a couple of fasteners per foot that you would need to remove to get everything off of the roof. The tools to install and remove the bars/feet are included so put them in the glove box of the vehicle so they are ready to go when you are. I have linked a video showing how the feet install on a Highlander...

  • The Thule Hullavator Pro, part # TH898 is a great kayak carrier and it makes it much easier to load and unload your Pungo Kayak, especially with the height of your 2016 Highlander. The roof rack I recommend for your Highlander is the Thule WnigBar roof rack. This roof rack includes aerodynamic crossbars that help reduce wind drag and noise. To order this roof rack you will need part # TH711400 for silver bars or part # TH711420 for black bars, part # TH460R, and part # THKIT3134. To...

  • Recommended Thule WingBar Evo Roof Rack for 2016 Toyota Highlander
  • Your roof will have one of two different configurations, you'll either have a bare roof or a roof that has flush mounted rails with fixed mounting points. The video I've linked will show you where to look on your roof to see if you have the fixed mounts. It looks like you've looked at some Thule WingBar Evo crossbars, so that's what I'll recommend for you. If you have the bare roof, you'd need the following: For sliver crossbars, part # TH711500 or # TH711520 for black Rapid Traverse...

  • Can Panoramic Roof be Opened on 2016 Toyota Highlander Platinum with Thule Roof Rack Installed
  • The Thule roof rack feet in the system in the video, # TH460R, won't block the panoramic roof on your 2016 Toyota Highlander but it is possible that if the glass roof opens up above the roof line it could make contact with items mounted on the crossbars # TH711400 since the hardware used to mount accessories hangs down lower than the bottoms of the bars. The crossbars are also available in black using # TH711420. Thule does not recommend opening the roof with the crossbars in place but...

  • 2015 Toyota Highlander Roof Rack Recommendation
  • For a roof rack for your 2015 Toyota Highlander you would want the Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack part numbers # TH7603B-TH7603B and # THKIT3134. This is flush bar roof rack that will look factory and will provide you with a quiet roof rack. There are no exclusions for this rack with use on a Highlander with a panoramic roof rack so it would work well for you. Most likely with the roof rack open you would see the crossbars if you were to look straight up.
