Thule SquareBar on Vehicle

These classic Thule SquareBar 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 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 .


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.

Video Transcript for Thule AeroBlade Traverse Roof Rack Installation - 2014 Chevrolet Malibu

Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System with the 53-inch Aero blades, using part numbers THARB53, TH480R and THKIT1684. With our roof rack assembled according to the manufacturers instructions we'll begin by opening our front doors and grabbing the front half of our rack. We'll place it onto the front half of our roof line then grab our tape measure. Per Thule's fit guide, we're going to measure 9 1/2 inches from the leading edge of the roof line to the leading edge of our foot pack. We'll do this measurement on both sides to be sure that we have our feet in line with each other. With both feet in the correct position, we'll now tighten from side to side, a little bit at a time, until we have this half of our rack secured to our vehicle. With the front secure, we'll close the front doors, open our rear doors and grab the rear half of our rack. We'll place it onto the rear part of our roof line.

The measurement we're going to do here is 25 5/8. We'll do it from the center of the front foot pack to the center of the rear foot pack. Again, we're going to take this measurement on both sides to be sure we have our feet in line with each other and also that our bars are parallel. Once we have our feet in the correct position, we'll simply follow the same tightening process that we used for the front. Once we have it secure, we'll shut our rear doors, we're ready to start attaching some gear and that will complete today's test fit of the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System using part numbers THARB53, TH480R and THKIT1684, on our 2014 Chevrolet Malibu. .

Assembled and functioned just as the instruction said it would. I had absolutely no problem installing and using these rack bars on my Ford Edge. They have nor shifted and have held my equipment perfectly. Would certainly recommend them. Purchasing and getting additional from eTrailer was also excellent. 667797

2013 Ford Edge

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

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 whole experience was freakin awesome. * Ordered on-line, delivered when promised, all packages were in excellent condition, and all parts were accounted for - no shortages, THANK YOU! * The Thule roof rack design, quality of materials, comprehensive instructions were really impressive. Everything went together without a hitch and really looks good installed. * We plan on carrying our 12 1/2' SUP's on the roof rack when we head out to the lakes. * It saves us time as our SUP's are inflatable, however it takes a bit of time to pump them up once we get there. Now it's just loosen them up and we're ready to go. Great job etrailer, I would definitely buy more products from your organization!! 672688

Ford Flex

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

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Got a 2020 Grand Cherokee with the black metal roof side rails. I had planned on using the 60" Aerobars with the 460R pedestals, but oddly the bar didn't have long enough mounting points. So after talking with these folks, I opted for the 480R instead. While they 'technically' worked, the rack sat way in front of the factory rails. I did a LOT of talking with Thule and others and finally opted to get the 69" Probars. They work with the 460R pedestals, fit into the factory side rails and while I did have to get them cut down to 60", have enough room for everything I need to mount. So, my only compliant is that both Thule and etrailer don't seem to have the Probars listed as an option for the Grand Cherokee. They are the best option, especially if you have a Hullivator. And they look great! 744654

2017 Toyota Prius

The installation directions & online video by etrailer were invaluable, both clear and concise. Along with the Thule fit kit designed specifically for my 2017 Prius & the Thule crossbars, these "feet" more than securely attached the rack to the roof of my vehicle. Plus they are very easy to remove. Very ingenious system (and an improvement over my old 20-year-old Thule roof rack, which although aging, still works great on our other vehicle). I do recommend purchasing locks (sold separately). Also, I did need to contact etrailer customer service on a matter unrelated to this particular part, and they replied promptly, very courteous & helpful. 735074

As far as the product is concerned it works and looks good. I do not understand where they get their x and y dimensions from on the 1724 kit. That part was a pain. You get all set up and the distance comes up short. This was on a 2017 Acura RDX. 696701

The # THKIT1724
Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit for Traverse Foot Packs - 1724

is confirmed as a fit for your 2017 Acura RDX. The X measurement is the side to side measurement of the front crossbar tower placement is 44-1/8 inches. The Y measurement is 42-1/2 inches side to side for the rear crossbar. The front crossbar should be positioned 13 inches from the windshield seam, the rear crossbar should be 24 3/4 inches back from the front crossbar.

I've used them on 3 different cars. My husband didn't read the directions so it took us a few redo's to get the right latches and pads on the front and back racks, but otherwise, very straightforward installation and many installation videos to help. 673230

  • Thule Square Crossbars for 2019 Subaru Ascent to Mount Thule Cargo Box and Ski Rack
  • I wish there was a way to mount both your Thule Mountaineer 669TT cargo box and Thule Flat Top 724 to the factory crossbars on your 2019 Subaru Ascent, but the EasySnap kit will not work with the 669TT and there isn't an adapter that will allow it to fit to your crossbars. If your 2019 Ascent has raised side rails that will allow you to remove the factory crossbars you can add square bars to the car. What you will need is the Thule SquareBar Crossbars # TH712400 which you would mount

If you happen to have a set of Thule 53 inch square crossbars, parts # TH712400, you can re-use them and just order the other rack parts. If the bars are another length they are not recommended for your vehicle but longer bars can be cut down. In addition to the square crossbars you will need the Evo Clamp Foot Pack # TH710501 and the Fit Kit # TH145046 to complete the roof rack.

  • Why are So Many Roof Racks Rated Only for 165 lbs
  • The reason the majority of roof racks out there right now (December 2018) are rated for 165 lbs is because for the longest time there was no reason to test them past that point. It is very rare to find a vehicle with a roof weight rating that is over 165 lbs so the max weight rating for entire roof rack systems just kind of stopped right there. With that being said, roof rack manufacturers have recently been looking into testing their systems at higher weights to see what they can hold.

Thule is a great brand and their Interstate Cargo Bag, # TH869, is hard to beat when it comes to size and quality. I've attached a review video of this bag for you to check out. For bike racks, if you prefer a fork mount,

  • What Length Thule Crossbars Fit on a 2015 Hyundai Sonata
  • Actually the correct Thule SquareBars for your 2015 Hyundai Sonata are the 53 inch bars, part # TH712400. Thule redesigned their roof racks so these are what you need. They still work with the same # TH480R feet and # THKIT1818 fit kit.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2014 Mazda 3
  • Since you already have the Thule SquareBars # TH712400, you'll just need the Evo Clamp Feet # TH710501 and the vehicle specific fit kit for your Mazda 3, part # TH145002. To cut down on the wind noise, you might be interested in a fairing, part # TH8702. I'll also link you to some FAQ articles about other roof mounted accessories you might be interested in.

  • How Tight do the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof-Rack Feet Need to be
  • There is not a torque spec for the mounting clamps on the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack part # TH480R. The foot pack comes with an AcuTight tensioning tool which will be used to secure the feet onto the roof. The feet will need to be tight so they don't move but not much more than this. I have attached a review video which shows the feet being tighten for you as well.

  • 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.

  • Fit Kit Needed for Thule Square Bar Roof Rack on a 2015 Lexus CT 200h
  • If you already have the 47" Thule SquareBars # TH712200 then the only other parts you need to complete the roof rack for your 2015 Lexus CT 200h are the Traverse Foot Pack # TH480R and the Fit Kit # THKIT1636. Since your CT 200h doesn't have pre-installed fixpoints for a roof rack you actually need to use the Thule Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack # TH480R. The Thule Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack # TH460 is designed to work with vehicles that have the pre-installed fixpoints so it won't

  • Parts Needed to Install Thule Aeroblade Roof Rack on 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Thule does offer an Aeroblade roof rack that fits your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the all black flush roof rails, but they recommend using 60 inch bars like the part # THARB60 so your 53 inch bars may not be long enough. All of the components needed to install a Thule rack on your vehicle are # TH711520, # TH480R, and # THKIT1656. If you were inclined you could go with just the feet and fit kit for now to see if the bars you have will work, and if not then order the 60 inch bars.

  • What is Recommended Square Bar Length for Thule Roof Rack on 2017 Chevy Colorado
  • Thule changed their square crossbar design a while back and when they did this some of the recommended bar lengths changed.

  • What is the Difference Between the Thule Traverse 480 and Rapid Travers 480R?
  • The Thule Traverse 480 has been discontinued and is only compatible with square load bars which are also discontinued. The Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack # TH480R are compatible with the Aero Style bars like the AeroBlade or WingBar Evo, the ProBar HD bars, and the SquareBar that has a slot on the underside. I've linked the page to all these crossbar options to assist. The ProBar # TH713700 and # TH713600 are the only crossbars that can be cut to custom lengths like the older square

  • Recommended Roof Rack/Carrier Option for 2 Kayaks on 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • First, let's start with the kayak carrier. A kayak carrier system like # S512 used with the # RRS512X would allow you to carry two kayaks, while not using a lot of space on the roof. You'll next need to choose a roof rack to provide an attachment point for the kayak carrier. The roof rack solution you'd use will depend on whether your Silverado 3500 is a regular or a crew-cab model. For a crew-cab, I'd recommend an Vortex Aero rack from Rhino-Rack which is the most budget friendly

  • Antenna Clearance When Transporting Stand-Up Paddleboards on 2013 Ford Escape or 2013 Toyota RAV4
  • When it comes to a stand-up paddle board carrier that will clear the antenna on a 2013 Ford Escape or a 2013 Toyota RAV4, I recommend taking a look at the Thule SUPDawg, part # Y04075. We installed this carrier on a Toyota 4Runner and as you can see in the attached picture, there is quite a bit of room between the roof and the paddle board so you shouldn't have any problem with antenna clearance.

  • Best Value Roof Rack for 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • For your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude there typically are not factory raised rails. Those models come either without rails or with flush mounted rails. If those rails have a chrome finish and a slot in the top then you have the e-group package and I recommend the Rola # 59966 for an economical option that will work very well. If those rails do not have the slot in the top, then you will use the Thule SquareBar Load Bars # TH712500, Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack # TH480R, and Fit

  • Can Crossbars for a Thule Roof Rack be Spaced Further Apart on a 2012 Honda CR-V
  • The crossbar spread is 27-1/2 inches for the Thule AeroBlade system on a 2012 Honda CR-V. This is set by where the feet need to install on the roof. The specific locations are chosen because they are the most structurally sound. The fit kit is then made to fit the specific contours of the roof in those locations. Moving the crossbars further apart will lead to damage to the roof and a lower capacity. For a wider bar spread the Yakima system has a spread of 32 inches. It is made up of

Both racks provide a maximum load capacity of 165-lbs and I suggest a review of your owner's manual to confirm that the car's roof

  • Troubleshooting Tightening Bolt Coming All The Way Out of Thule Rapid Traverse Foot
  • I reached out to my contact at Thule and she said there's not really a trick to getting the tightening screw back into place on your Rapid Traverse Foot. If it's not threading in there's likely an issue inside the foot that would require a full replacement. Just the tightening bolt isn't available as a separate part, although the bolt itself likely isn't the problem. You can replace a single foot with the part # 7522249001, which will include everything you need.
