Video Transcript for Thule Roof Rack THLB50 Review

Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Thule square load bars. Now, load bars work with Thule foot packs to create a roof rack for your vehicle, which allows you to mount various accessories. Roof rack feet are sold separately and available at etrailer.com. With a roof rack installed on your vehicle, you'll be able to mount cargo carriers, boxes, bike racks, kayak carriers, ski carriers, and many more accessories. The square load bars will accept accessories that use a clamp or strap to secure around the square bars. Now, these are standard square load bars.

They're very sturdy and offer extreme support. The bars are very strong and durable. They're made from a galvanized steel construction and feature a soft plastic coating, which helps prevent rust and corrosion while providing a non-scratch cushion for your accessories. Located at the top of each bar are these small ridges. That's going to help the accessory create a nice tight, secure fit around the bar and provide slip-resistance. Also, as you're traveling down the road, those ridges are gonna help break up the wind, which will help reduce wind noise during travel.

But square bars are gonna come in a two-pack. They have a weight capacity of 165 pound per pair. They're available in a variety of lengths. At etrailer.com, we sell these in 50-inch, 58-inch, 65-inch, and 78-inch lengths. The bars themselves, edge-to-edge this direction, measure about an inch and a quarter.

Bottom to top, measure about 15/16 of an inch. They're covered with a lifetime warranty. Please note that load bars do not include end caps. The end caps are included with Thule roof rack legs. They are also available individually or in a four-pack at etrailer.com.

That's gonna do it for today's look at the Thule square load bars.

I already had an "older" Thule roof/bike rack, purchased for a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, then used on a 2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring (this was the roof rack with the "strapped-on to roof rails" feet, and the bike carriers with the cantilevered, front fork-secured, mechanism). My new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT does NOT have roof rails, thus the need for this new Thule package consisting of: 1) TH460 - Thule Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack for Square Load Bars, 2) THKIT3068 - Thule Fit Kit for Podium Syle Foot Pack and 3) THLB50 - Thule Square Load Bars - Steel - 50" - Qty 2. MY plan was to "re-use" the pair of "older" Thule bike carriers. Etrailer's online info was excellent. The installation videos (although not for this identical package on the same vehicle as mine - but the 2012 Honda CRV's roof-mounting system is very close to the Hyundai's) were even MORE excellent! The box arrived on-time. The components were all there, and undamaged. The installation instructions were clear and concise... even for these 67 year-old eyes/mind! My "older" Thule bike carriers fit PERFECTLY... the new load bars are identical to my old ones (the only reason I needed new ones was I'd "cut down" the old ones when I moved the rack from the Grand Cherokee to the Elantra Touring, and now they were ~2" too short!!!). We tow the car behind our motorhome and we've found the Thule roof-mounted products to be excellent for our needs... holding up to three bikes on the top of our "dinghy". Dealing with the folks at Etrailer.com was a very pleasant experience! 100578

Got our order for this roof rack system and CRV fit kit in a timely manner and even had the etrailer team contact us both when there was a small delay on our fit kit coming in as well as when everything actually shipped out! Assembly was super easy and straight forward. The husband worked on prepping the car while I assembled the bars to the towers and then we worked together to affix everything to the car. All in all, it took us maybe 30 minutes to complete installation. Doing it alone might take 45 and is very doable. My only gripe would be the actual footers on the fit kit. The plastic pieces looked like they were supposed to snap in somewhere but just wiggled around in the mounting gaps until we actually tightened them down. They also seemed to be a bit of an awkward fit on the existing plastic rails, but again, once tightened look fine. I was slightly worried they would crack when tightening just because the plastic isn't very thick, but no problems so far! We're only one week after installation now, but love the look of them on the car, haven't noticed any extra noise while driving, and are excited for the first kayak trip this weekend to actually use them! 133284

It works great! Easy to remove the crossbars when not needed. Just leave the brackets on. I was skeptical at first but I can haul my canoe anywhere now!

Sorry for the slow response. We only installed the crossbars this passed weekend. They were very easy to install, as soon as I took the instructions away from my brother. I think they look very nice on the car, but his wife doesn't like them, so we'll be taking them off and putting them on every time we go kayaking. I have my opinions about that situation which I'll keep to myself. I've attached pics of both a front and a back view. 139637

I purchased the Thule roof racks and kayak holder system for my 2013 Honda CRV one year ago. The customer service at etrailer.com was very good, as I needed clarification as to whether I was purchasing the correct parts; very helpful guidance. The product worked great and was easy to install. My only complaint had to do with the packaging of the delivered roof racks and carrier. While I'm all for limiting wasteful-packaging - this shipment was grossly under packaged. Roof racks arrived dinged and scuffed (no bubble wrap or brown paper covers). Items loosly bounced about inside the box, which was nearly broken from the inside out. 403984

Great service provided here are etrailer.com. I am very happy with my order. I ordered the product on Monday at like 11:00AM and chose the free 5-7 day shipping. They gave me 3-5 day shipping for free and had the product shipped out that day!!! I got it on Thursday with everything I order. There were no issues with anything. They emailed me like 1 hour after the product arrived to make sure everything was good. I would definitely buy here again, and refer my friends to etrailer.com. 25272

Shipment came in quickly, despite me being overseas. One of the bars had been damaged in shipping, leaving a large gash in the side. I contacted etrailer and they had a new one in the mail the next day. There will always be accidents that occur with shipping in this day and age. The fact that etrailer just jumped in and replaced the damaged equipment with no questions shows what kind of company they are. 289968

This kit as well as the TH460 podium roof mounted foot pack and the THLB50 bars all arrived quicker than I expected. I followed etrailer's online tool to identify the correct system for my vehicle (2005 CRV). The fit is perfect and installation went very well. You do need 2 people for a small part of the install but other than that, all was easily achievable by a novice like myself. 301540

These roof rack bars are easy to use and put on/take off the car - I got them for a Subaru Outback. My wife can easily install them, too. (We like to take them off when we don't need them b/c they cause a low whistling sort of sound when you drive.) The delivery was really quick. I am totally satisfield with etrailer and the product I ordered. 52204

Product arrived very quickly and was in excellent condition. I was easily able to follow the instructions and put it on my Subaru Crosstrek. One thing I would recommend is to purchase the locks along with the bars and footpads. I thought the footpads would come with locks, but they do not, so I will have to make another purchase. 140330

Wow it's only been a year now since I've gotten the Tule Roof Racks! It is an amazing investment! I'm a person that likes to travel the moment the opportunity is presented so I purchased a cargo box which sits on these racks to carry the extra gear. Great buy! 313872

  • What Roof Rack for 2014 Honda CR-V with Factory Side Rails Can Use 72-Inch Thule Square Load Bars
  • The width of your 2014 Honda CR-V measured from the outside edges of the two side mirrors is 71 inches. For safety reasons it is not recommended to use crossbars that are substantially wider than the roof line itself. If you were to mount your 72-inch Thule square load bars onto compatible rack feet the crossbars would extend out from each side of the roof enough to pose a potential hazard. The longest crossbars recommended for your CR-V are 50-inches but since it is possible to cut

The square crossbars will be compatible with a greater variety of rooftop mounted accessories whereas, the aero crossbars will be much more quite and low profile. In addition to these features, the square crossbar system will be more cost effective than the aero crossbar system, though both will work

  • Roof Rack and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta
  • For a Thule roof rack for a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta, there are a couple of different options. First, there is a system with the traditional Thule square bars.

You will need the following parts: Bars, # THLB50 Foot Pack, # TH480 Fit Kit, # THKIT1618 You can also add a fairing, # TH8702 For bike racks that will fit this system, I would go with the

You may be able to find the capacity of each separate component in the owners manual or by contacting a dealership. But even if you were to add different crossbars like the Thule Load Bars, # THLB50, Thule still states
