Thule SquareBar on Vehicle

The SquareBar Evo 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.

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

Fantastic, even though we have a full size truck with a cap on it, the ability to carry large, odd shaped things is awesome, roof rack is sturdy, has never come loose, and is relatively quiet at all driving speeds. Received many compliments as well from other truck owners who seem interested in installing a roof rack. Thanks again for an awesome product

WAY TOO MUCH WIND NOISE. I do not recommend this product, Could not return it since it was installed. Need to try the wind spoiler to see if it reduces noise. 799641

Fairings are a great solution to cut down on wind noise from a roof rack. I have linked all of Thules fairing options for you so you can choose the width that fits the best for your vehicle.

Well made product. Will work great with the other components to make one terrific rook rack! 194742

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!

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 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

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

2006 Mini Cooper

I bought this with the mini cooper 2006 package. I had looked around locally and got some quotes for a rack for my girlfriends 06 mini, and I was getting prices over 850 dollars for the complete package. There were 650 with shipping (I chose the expedited) and arrived in 3 days, which is really fast where I live. The racks fit and I was able to find an installation video from the etrailer youtube website which was very helpful. From what I heard from the locals shops they stopped producing this set so if you have a mini cooper thats 06 and earlier this is the one to grab while they still have them in stock. We did have to adjust the back measurements a bit from what the manual said and it was a bit tough to work the back mounts into place but after some work the racks look great and are very sturdy! 883228

  • 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

  • Comparing Roof Rack Crossbar Spread for Thule SquareBar and Rhino-Rack Aero Bar on 2019 Honda Pilot
  • For your 2019 Honda Pilot, the Thule SquareBar Crossbars 60 inch # TH712500, Thule Rapid Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack # TH480R, and Fit Kit # THKIT1811 has a crossbar spread of 31.13 inch. With this kit I also recommend adding locks # TH450400. The Rhino-Rack system consisting of the Rhino-Rack Aero Bar Crossbars # RRVA137B-2, 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and Custom Fit Kit # DK444 have a crossbar spread of 31.5 inches.

  • Thule 60 Inch Crossbars for 2020 Subaru Outback
  • The solution for you is to use the ProBar instead of square bars because as you stated the bottom slots of the square bar won't accommodate your fit. The Thule ProBar has the slots that run the full distance of the bars, so the bars can be cut to a custom length. I recommend the Thule ProBar Crossbars - Aluminum - 69" Long - Qty 2 # TH713600 which will work with both the carriers you mentioned and will give you your desired length.

  • I do have an option for you but the only part of the Thule Subaru Factory Roof Rack SOA567X050 that you would be able to reuse are the crossbars. The mounting feet are for vehicles with fixed points which your 2016 Subaru Legacy does not have. In order to reuse the crossbars you will need both the Thule Rapid Traverse Feet part # TH480R and the Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit for Traverse Foot Packs part # THKIT1761.

  • Will the Thule Rapid 400XT Foot Pack Work on a 2009 Toyota Matrix
  • I do have an option for you but I spoke to my contact at Thule and they said that the Thule Rapid 400XT Foot Pack that you have cannot be reused on your 2009 Toyota Matrix because the fit kits are no longer available. Therefore, if you wanted to reuse your crossbars you would need both the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack part # TH480R and the Thule Roof-Rack Fit Kit for Traverse Foot Packs part # THKIT1512. For a more cost effective option, we have the Rola APE Series Roof Rack

  • 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

  • 2012 Ford F150 Supercrew Thule Roof Rack Fit How Should it Fit
  • I have not had this issue in the past with any Thule roof rack like the Thule Rapid Traverse WingBar Evo Roof Rack in the past. They do extensive testing on their kits to ensure this does not happen. To ensue you have the right clips match them up. you are looking for part # THKIT1521. If you do in fact have the correct fit the next step is to check the positioning on the roof rack and make sure you have followed the instruction exactly. There will be a specific position this crossbar

  • Clearance Between Roof and Crossbar with Thule AeroBlade Bars on a 2005 Nissan Maxima
  • I went out to our studios and found a Rapid Traverse foot from a # TH480R kit and measured from the base to the bottom of where the bar would be. It was just under 3-1/4 inches. Because roofs are generally sloped and fit is different on every vehicle, use this measurement as a guide only to estimate where the bottom of the bar will approximately be. In addition to the foot pack you will also need the crossbars, # TH711420 in black or # TH711400 in silver, and fit kit # THKIT1538.

  • 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.

  • Can Thule Roof Rack Placement be Moved to Move Cargo Box Back on 2011 Ford Edge
  • The placement of the clips that hold the roof rack feet to your 2011 Ford Edge are very specific. Moving them can cause fit problems or unintended damage to the vehicle. Are you able to move the mounting feet on the box any further forward? That would move the box rearward some. The overhang doesn't appear to be excessive in your picture. It will create more wind resistance but if you can open the hood without hitting the box then it will still be fine.

  • Recommendation on a Roof Rack to Fit a 2005 Mini Cooper
  • I recommend the Thule Roof Rack System which consists of # TH711200 crossbars, # TH480R Feet, and custom fit kit # THKIT1366 for your 2005 Mini Cooper. The bars have a weight capacity of 165 lbs. However, this is only the limit of the bar and does not increase your roof's carrying capacity. Check your owners manual or contact your dealer to find out what is your Mini's roof capacity.

  • Could 53 Inch Thule AeroBlade Bars Be Installed onto a 2011 Honda Fit
  • A 53 inch Thule AeroBlade Load Bars # THARB53 would install onto your 2011 Honda Fit in the same way that the recommended 47 inch AeroBlade would. The reason the 53 inch bar is not recommended is because it will hang over and additional 3 inches on either side of your vehicle which might cause clearance issues. For example you would be more likely to hit your head on the bar since it would be hanging over the edge of the vehicle further. The part numbers you would need to install an

  • We do offer some aftermarket roof rack fits for your 2017 Subaru Outback Touring Wagon that has raised roof side rails. The current options are from Rhino-Rack and can be seen on the linked page. You can choose either silver or black bars; many customers prefer the black bar set-up, part # JA7975, for its OEM-like appearance. For silver bars order kit # JA7956. 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

  • Thule changed their square crossbar design a while back and when they did this some of the recommended bar lengths changed.

Currently the new bar design uses the longer 53 inch crossbar setup with part numbers # TH712400, # TH480R, and # THKIT1714.
