Expert Answers about Thule

  • How to Remove a Thule Lock Cylinder using a Universal Change Key # 853-1251
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and she said that you will need to turn the locks to the unlock position, and then insert the change key. This should pop the lock out of its position. I then spoke with our installer who has done many lock cylinder replacements and he said that if you are still having problems you will just need to keep wiggling, and tapping it while the change key is in. He said a couple of times he has had to hold the assembly upside down to use gravity to help it...

  • Replacement Key Recommendation For a Sears X-Cargo 20 Series Cargo Carrier
  • We have replacement keys for your Sears X Cargo 20 series cargo carrier. In order to get the correct one you will need to know the key number of your current setup. If you do not have a key to get the part number off of, the lock on the cargo box should have a number engraved in it that you can use for the key number. Once you have the key number type into our search box the letters, THKEYN, followed by the 4 digits of your key number and the correct key will come up for you. For...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a Carbon Fiber Frame and Carbon Wheel Bike
  • There are many options for carrying a bike with a carbon fiber frame but the Thule Doubletrack Platform Bike Rack is not recommended as it uses the frame to secure the bike to the rack. Your best option would be a platform style bike rack that holds the bikes at the wheels like the Swagman Semi, # S64686. You would not have to worry about the frame or even carbon wheels at all with this bike rack. The adjustable arm that holds the front tire will also fit a wide variety of bike types...

  • Which Hitch Receiver Size is Better 1-1/4 inch or 2 Inch
  • Sorry to hear about your car accident and your hitch and bike rack being damaged. As far as installing a new hitch, the first thought that comes to mind is, because of the accident, are all the necessary attachment points for a trailer hitch on the frame intact. I recommend asking the shop that is repairing the vehicle if, after it is repaired, would it be safe to install a new trailer hitch. If the vehicle is given the green light for a new trailer hitch, I recommend a 2 inch receiver....

  • Roof Rack for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder with Bare Roof
  • Rhino-Rack offers a number of rack options that will fit well on your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder that has a bare roof. All of these appear on the linked page. My recommendation is their black Vortex rack which is made of parts # RRVA150B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK407. This rack features the quieter aero-style of crossbar, in this case 59-inch bars, that make less wind noise. These also offer flexible mounting for accessories like bike or kayak racks since they accept both the standard clamp-around...

  • Platform-Style Hitch-Mount Bike Rack for 2 Electra Townie Step-Through Frame Bikes
  • Your Electra Townie step-through-frame bikes pose a challenge to finding a suitable hitch-mount carrier since the bikes lack both a top frame tube and since they have fenders. These features make most carriers unsuitable since most use either the top frame tube or the front tire as the contact point for the arm that holds the bikes in place. One carrier from Thule, their EasyFold 2 Bike Rack # TH903202, includes some great features that may make it a good choice for you. It has a ramp...

  • Replacement Tamperproof Wrench or Allen Key for a Thule Roof Mount Ski Carrier
  • You will either need tamperproof wrench # 853-5270-02 or allen key # 853-0930. If the screws you are trying to remove require a wrench head with a hole in the middle, like screw # 853-5269, then you will need # 853-5270-02 that you referenced. If your screws just have a slot of an allen wrench use # 853-0930.

  • Best Roof Rack for 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
  • I contacted Thule to verify the correct fits for the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. Thule does not recommend opening the sunroof with any crossbars installed, as it may cause damage to the crossbars or the sunroof's motor and glass. With the Thule Aeroblade Edge, part # TH7504-TH7504, you will not be able to use the sunroof, but the quick install and removal of these blades may make up for that. These bars ratchet to your existing siderails and can be removed quickly when not in use. Thule...

  • Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a Jeep Wrangler with Oversized Tires
  • We have a few hitch mount bike rack options that will work for you. One of the most popular hitch mount bike racks among our Jeep Wrangler customers is the Thule Hitching Post Pro, # TH934XTR. This bike rack measures 13-1/2 inches to the back of the upright mast and about 9 inches to the lower post at the bottom of the mast. Looking at your picture, I don't think the lower post will interfere with your rear tire. I have attached a review video of this bike rack on a Jeep Wrangler for you...

  • Best Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover Combination on 2017 Ford F-150
  • The best tonneau cover and ladder rack combination for a 2017 Ford F-150 is the TracRac SR # TH43002XT-501 with the BAK Revolver X2 # BAK39327. Most tonneau covers will either install in the same place a ladder rack or make contact with the rack while trying to open the cover. The Revolver X2 installs inside the bed rails of the truck and the SR installs in the stake pockets. The X2 is also sits a little further inside the bed rails than other covers, which keeps it from making contact...

  • Which 2 Bike Rack Will Work On A Ford Escape Without A Trailer Hitch
  • Since you do not have a hitch on your Ford Escape you can use a trunk bike rack. Thule and Yakima will both have two choices each that will carry two bikes and fit a Ford Escape. The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, # TH910XT, will fit on a Ford Escape. It has a weight capacity of 70 lbs. and attaches to the vehicle by six straps for added stability.. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I...

  • What is the Difference Between the Thule AeroBlade Edge and WingBar Roof Racks
  • The Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7603-TH7603 uses Thule's AeroBlade Edge technology which mount flush to your 2014 BMW X3 factory side rails. They do not extend farther than your side rails like the podium mounted roof rack and give an OEM roof rack look. This creates a quieter, stronger and more aerodynamic roof rack. This rack is a bit shorter than the podium style racks at 38" long. Thule WingBar Roof Rack with # TH711200 is a podium style rack which sits along the top of each...

  • Difference Between Thule Motion XT and Thule Force Cargo BOxes
  • All of the Thule cargo boxes have a quite a bit in common but they do have some key differences. Thule's boxes come in four groups that relate to their standard features, the Pulse, Force, Motion and Hyper groups. All of Thule's boxes except the Pulse series have dual side access. Force boxes have Quick Grip mounting, and above average rigidity when opened. Motion boxes have the upgraded Power Click mounting, a unique lid design that creates a less "wobble" when opening, and the...

  • Recommended Bike Rack on 2017 Honda Civic Sport Hatchback
  • A roof rack is going to be your best option for a 2017 Honda Civic Sport Hatchback as long as you have a 4 door. Roof racks will cause drag which will always impact your gas mileage. And, like you said, getting something on a roof is more difficult than the trunk, but a hitch will not work with the center exhaust and a trunk rack is going to have issues with with the top spoiler. The most aerodynamic roof rack to fit the Civic is the Thule WingBar Evo that consists of the load bars...

  • Recommendation of Bike Rack for Beach Cruisers with Fenders and 3 inch Wide Tires
  • The Thule T2 Quick-Load 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack, item # TH9044, will accept up to 5 inch wide tires but, unless you have over 1 inch of clearance between the fender and the front tire on your cruiser with a fender, you will not be able to secure the bike safely. Another option for both of your cruisers would be the 2 Bike Carrier for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Trailer Hitches - Wheel Mount, item # S64650, as long as the weight of each bike is not over 35 pounds. This rack will accept...

  • I checked with Thule and the Passage 3, # TH911XT, is listed as a fit for your 2011 Jeep Liberty. I have included a link to the installation details for you. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a round top frame bar that goes straight across I recommend using an adapter bar # TH982XT.

  • How to Remove Broken Key from Thule Lock Cylinder
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule, and she did have a few suggestions for you to try. She said some people have had success retrieving broken keys using a paperclip. Try wiggling the key out using the paperclip along the ridged side of the key. I have had luck in the past using dental picks to work broken keys out of a lock cylinder. If enough of the key stem is protruding from the lock, you could also try grasping the key with needle nosed pliers and removing it that way. If you are...

  • Availability of Kayak Carriers for Toyota Camry Without a Roof Rack
  • Kayak carriers come in many varieties and some do indeed require a roof rack be present on the car. But there is also a lightweight and cost-effective type called a foam block kayak carrier that can be used on a vehicle with a bare roof, such as your Toyota Camry. Apart from being less costly and lighter than other types, these foam block kayak carriers allow your car to retain its normal appearance when you're not hauling your kayaks. They are also really easy to store inside the trunk...

  • Installation Tips for Installing the Rubber Strip into Thule Aero Crossbars
  • Good news, I've had the opportunity to install this strip many times and understand how frustrating it can be. The easiest way that I found to install this rubber piece like # TH853354406; if you use your thumbs to press the rubber into the channel while holding and articulating it from side to side above the channel worked best for me. I have linked a short video to show you how I install it. Also smaller sized strips will slide easier within the channel so if the long strip is giving...

  • Differences Between Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR and Vertex # TH9029
  • Other than the outward appearance of the more modern-looking Vertex, there are a few other differences between the Vertex # TH9029 and the Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR. To fold the arms down or to tilt the rack back away from the vehicle, the Hitching Post Pro uses snapper pins that need to be removed, while the Vertex uses quick release latches. Both mechanisms serve the same purpose, but the Vertex latch is easier to use. Since the Wrangler has the rear mounted spare tire, clearance...

  • Adding Quick Grip Attachment To Older Thule Roof Mounted Cargo Box
  • I know it's really tempting to want to upgrade a U-Bolt style attachment system on a cargo box to the more modern and infinitely more convenient to use quick grip type assembly like # TH05738 or # TH05820. Thule doesn't recommend cutting slots or drilling holes in any box under any circumstances. Doing so, even if an effort is made to reinforce it, will weaken the connection to the vehicle crossbar in an unknown manner. This can cause the box to become an unintended projectile in the...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 5 Bikes While Towing a Pop Up Camper
  • The Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210 would be an excellent choice to be used in conjunction with towing your current pop up trailer and a hitch mounted bike rack that has a carrying capacity of 5 bikes. The # D210 is compatible with and an existing 2 inch hitch and provides a 2 inch receiver for accessory use. This hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 750 pounds total, and a receiver capacity of 350 pounds. Therefore the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes cannot exceed 350...

  • Comparing Thule and Rola Enclosed Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carriers
  • If weight carrying capacity is an issue, going with the Rola enclosed cargo carrier, # 59110, if you have a 2 inch receiver, would be the way to go. If you have a 1-1/4 inch Class II trailer hitch receiver, then the correct Rola carrier is # 59108 and it also has a capacity of 150 pounds like the Thule model, # TH665C. If you are choosing between the two models for a 1-1/4 inch hitch, then I would go with the Rola carrier, # 59108, because even though they have the same capacity, the...

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for Carrying up to 3 Kayaks
  • Since you need to carry up to 3 kayaks and the longest one you have is 10 feet in length the Thule Stacker part # TH830 would be your best option. Any of the other racks mentioned would require a second or third rack to carry all three at the same time since they aren't designed for carrying 3 kayaks like The Stacker is.

  • How to Replace Thule Locking Cylinders on a Roof Rack
  • When you go to change the lock cylinders on your roof rack to the cylinders of the Thule Locking Cylinders 4 Pack # TH450400 you will insert the included universal change key into an unlocked cylinder that is currently in your roof rack and then remove the cylinder. It may take a little bit of wiggling for the cylinder to work itself loose, but when the change key is inserted into the lock cylinder the cylinder will be free to slide out. Next, you will insert the change key into a cylinder...

  • What is the Best Bike Rack for a Fat Tire Bike

These bike racks come with large front and rear wheel cradles to accommodate fat bike tires up to 5 inches wide and Thule is an industry...

  • Can the T-Slot in Thule AeroBlade Crossbars be Used to Attach Any Accessory
  • Thule, unlike Yakima, does not have a special device that attaches to the bars and accepts numerous accessories. Basically, it depends on what you want to fit to the AeroBlade bars. Thule makes several adapters, called Xadapt? where the question mark would be a number depending on which adapter it was. If you can tell me what you are wanting to attach to the AeroBlade bars I can determine what Xadapt you will need. If it is a non-Thule item then it may not fit. Or if you modified...
