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 Roof Rack Review - 2017 Honda Pilot

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2017 Honda Pilot, we'll be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Thule Roof Rack System; that's going to consist of our Thule Aeroblade Crossbars, part number: THARB60, our Thule Rack with Traverse Foot Pack, part number: TH480R, and our Thule Fit Kit for our Honda Pilot, part number: THKIT1811. Now, our crossbars are also available in black with part number: THARB60B.The Thule Roof Rack System is a great solution for carrying your vehicle accessories on your roof, whether those are bike racks, ski and snowboard carriers, kayak carriers, or cargo baskets. The aerodynamic shape of our bars, as well as the weatherstrip on the inside, are going to help reduce wind, noise and drag. If we move our end cap out of the way, you can see that our weatherstrip is easy to remove. We can cut it down and replace it with channel-mounted accessories.Our foot pack does have a built-in cover. We also have a plastic lock core here.

If we remove that and place in a metal lock core, that's going to help to prevent theft and tampering of your roof rack system as a whole. We can open that up, on the inside you'll see we're easily able to store in our tool. This is going to be helpful, so we don't have to worry about losing or misplacing our tool at any time, though I do only suggest you do this whenever you have a lock core on your cover.Our fit kit is going to be custom cut to our vehicle. It's going to give us a nice secure fit. We're also going to have a rubber coating on any portion that touches our vehicle, so we don't have to worry about any scratches or abrasions.This roof rack system has a 165 pound weight capacity, though you do want to double check your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure your roof can withstand that much weight.

This is also going to come with a lifetime warranty and be quick and easy to install. We'll show you how to do that now.Everything that you see on our table is what's included in our kit. The only thing we've provided ourselves is our flat tape measure. We're going to get two crossbars, four foot packs, four of our pads from our fit kit and four clamps. We'll also get four end caps, as well as an included tool to tighten everything down.Now, to begin the actual install, we're going to take our foot pack, our clamp and our pad.

We're going to open up the front door on our foot pack to start and take our clamp. We want to make sure that it fits behind each gray piece on our foot pack. Close up that door, flip this over, and we'll take our pad. We're going to place that onto the bottom, making sure that every hole is closed. Then we can open up this back door, and we're ready to place it onto our crossbar.We're going to start by sliding this onto our crossbar, and we'll measure out the distance.

Now, we don't have a scale on this bar, usually they will come with them. We're just going to take our flat tape measure and measure that out from the center of our bar to the edge of our foot pack. Once we have that measured out, we can close up that back door and we'll place on our crossbar end cap. Now, we're ready to open up the doors on our vehicle and load up our crossbar.We're going to place it over the roof of our vehicle. We want to make sure that our clamps sit around our door. Measuring out our crossbars, we're going to measure from the front of the front foot pack to the front of the back. That measurement is in your instructions. We want to do the same thing to the other side as well.Now, we'll take our included tool and we'll start to tighten down our bolts, this is going to tighten up our clamp. We're going to start so that it sits just up against our doorframe. Now, we want to do the same thing on the other side, again going back and forth, tightening it down evenly, so that we have a nice, even and secure fit.Now, once we've finished tightening down our bolt, we can push in our tool and leave it in there. Close up our cover, though I do only suggest you leave your tool in whenever you have that locking core. Now, we're ready to close up our doors, load up our gear and hit the road.That's going to be our completed look at the Thule Roof Rack System on our 2017 Honda Pilot.

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

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

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!

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

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

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


Comments

The # THKIT1724
Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit for Traverse Foot Packs - 1724
$119.95
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.

Jeep

I went with this Rola Vortex Cargo Rack with extension for its size and multiple tie down points. I Paired it with the Thule 5 inch rapid gutter feet with square bars because: To remove the freedom panels. Square bars are stronger than Aero type bars. Adjustability of fitment as the roof of the Jeep narrows toward the rear. When loaded for camping, I want to maintain rearward vision. Finally, the system met my load requirements. I had weighed the gear that will go onto the rack. And I am at OME specs. I did not want to use the gutter of the freedom panels to carry weight. Since the panels are removable, it seemed to be a potential weak point structurally. NOTES: Because this Rola rack comes in sections, I do not recommend it for “Overlanding”. And because it comes in sections, some weather proofing is needed. I coated the cargo rack guides with an anti seize grease. The bolts of the cargo clamps should be weather proofed as well. Over time, the screws will need to be replaced. They will rust. CONCLUSION Overall I am happy with this set up. Should work well for general camping and hold up to the easier off road trails. If your plans are to Overland for weeks at a time in all weather conditions on moderate to difficult trails having off camber conditions, then this rack may be problematic over time. And may cause damage to the roof top. 682335

I received my order from etrailer within 24 hours! Incredible. Free shipping too. The product was as ordered. Thule makes great racks, expensive but solid, well engineered and dependable. 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

The whole process of ordering a roof rack for my new car was simple. Just needed to decide which bars I wanted to buy, all the fitting and sizing was taken care of by the website. The package arrived on time. I spent maybe 2 hours puzzling through the directions, assembling the roof rack and attaching it to my car. By going slowly and rereading the directions numerous times, I think it got it right the first time. It was used to carry a canoe yesterday and did everything it was supposed to do. Completely adequate! 508212


Comments

The rack has been on my car almost continuously for a year now. It has carried dozens of boats tofrom put-ins and take-outs. It is a hassle to remove it to wash the roof of my car so Ive taken to just leaving it on all the time. THe rubber wear strips are pretty torn up now but that isnt an issue for me. It holds boats securely on my car.

Sturdy, nice looking, easy to install and remove, has not marked or damaged the car in any way so far. I use the rack for carrying a large, heavy, aluminum canoe which it holds securely. My only concern is that the rubber wear strips got a bit torn up from moving the canoe around on them as I was centering it. Also the assembly instructions could be much clearer, I ended up doing quite a bit of trial and error. 501444

  • Adding Security to Carry Long Paddle Board on Honda Fit
  • That does look pretty iffy in regards to traveling at high speeds on the interstate and there is one thing you can do that I recommend, and that's add a trailer hitch and load extender. You did not mention what year your Honda Fit was but since load extenders require a 2 inch hitch, if your Honda Fit is a model year 2009 to 2014 you need the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7286 or if you have a 2015 to 2017 Honda Fit you will need the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver

This will let you know what bolt sizes that you need in order to mount anything into the roof rack regardless of branding.

Thule tracks have a matching fit kit for roof racks that includes the correct bolts to mount a roof rack as part # THKIT3101.

  • How To Add Cross Bars to a Leer Truck Cap with Thule Rails

  • How Tight do the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof-Rack Feet Need to be

  • 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

Since you have the longer bars already what I would recommend you do is order just the feet and fit kit to see if the bars will fit. Since the bars have a track in them that does not run the entire length it's hard to say if the track would be long enough with your 60 inch bar.
