Used on a variety of roof-mounted Thule carriers, this metal bracket combines with knobs and carriage bolts (sold separately) to mount a carrier to your roof-rack load bars.


Perfect got it immediately. Will mount it to a Yakima rack and a trailhead roof top tent. Thank you


They arrived very quickly and worked exactly as needed. I had to open the holes slightly to fit the size bolt I was using, but it was easily done with a drill and a block of wood. These guys always have what you need!


etrailer was the only source of these Thule brackets.


Perfect replacement


worked great for what I needed.


Thanks for having these in stock! Excellent quality, fits the Thule Stackers just perfect so they mount on the factory crossbars of my 2005 Toyota Highlander. Excellent packaging and fast shipping too!


I was very impressed that a) the part I needed was in stock and b) the delivery happened so quickly. many thanks for your superb service.


Perfect replacement for plastic versions that cracked when used with Thule square bars (plastic versions would not have cracked I suspect with aero bars but this style of universal bracket in plastic cannot take only 2 points of contact but these have no issues). I ordered enough to fix the cracked ones and replace the ones that had not yet cracked.


Exactly what I ordered. Perfect condition, fit my Thule racks just as advertised and fast shipping. My brackets were rusted out and I wanted to go riding the trails this weekend and now I can as they arrived ahead of time. Stoked!! Thanks George J and I will definitely be ordering from you again and will tell all of my buddies about you. Cheers :-)


Part was exactly what I needed. Called around to a few local places with no luck. The parts came to me in 2 days with Priority shipping (sooner than the tracking information said!), got my rack on my roof, and saved my trip. I was on hold with the local shop that didn't even know what part I was looking for longer than it took me to order and pay for the parts through etrailer. These guys killed it!


Product was just as described they are real Thule bottom plates not an imitation. They work perfect on my Thule side arm racks with standard square bars.


This is the exact part that I needed to attach my Thule bike rack to my stock rails on my Honda CR-V. Thanks etrailer for having the part that I needed.


My package arrived partially open and a majority of the pieces were missing; I contacted George @ about it. I emailed George some images of the compromised packaging and he was VERY quick to have a replacement package sent to me at no extra cost.

Affordable prices can be easy to find nowadays but fantastic customer service, not so much. Thank you again for your help George. Pleasure doing business.


Lost one brace, screw and bolt on our Thule Hullapro kayak holders.
The search engine on the site helped me to quickly find and identify my missing parts.
Easy ordering, good pricing and fast shipping.
Excellent transaction.


Extra parts so I can use multiply Thule equipment on multiple vehicles at the same time.

Love them, my original ones were a fiberglass type of plastic. They were still working 20 years latter but I like the metal ones better.

etrailer shipped my order immediately following receipt and provided the freight tracking information shortly thereafter. Once received, in a timely manner, all parts ordered were in the box and in perfect condition. A good experience with a good result.


I ordered some spare parts for Thule racks.
I was able to quickly find the spare parts I needed and pay for them via Paypal.
The parts arrived on time and as described.


Perfect fit replacement for missing parts on my old but still functional Thule Vertex bike rack. Very easy install.


These fit perfect on my Subaru aero bars. They have a nice rubber coating on them that do not scratch your car or cross bars. The ordering was quick and painless. The parts were shipped fast and received quickly.


Parts arrived and with exceptional customer support on getting me the part I wanted for a mashup of Rhino Rack and Yakima!

by: -- lifesavers! They had the replacement parts I needed. Service was wonderful, fast and parts accurate. Price was SO much better than anywhere else. I wish now I had originally ordered my Thule rack from them to begin with. Next time! Thanks for wonderful service!!


Exactly what I needed to replace brackets that did not fit from other rack company. Quick mailing and received product ass described. Great job etrailer.


Purchased to replace some old rusted brackets for my old travel box. Worked great and game me confidence that it will last another 20 years.


Ordered on Sunday received them on Wednesday. 2 of these had rusted on my J-hook kayak carriers. Thanks for saving the day.


Used these brackets on a roof rack to add more stability. Easy to attach. Shaped nicely to accommodate the curve of the bar.

  • Replacement Mounting Hardware for Thule Hull-a-Port Kayak Carrier
    I understand your concern about your Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier # TH834 coming loose from your vehicle roof rack crossbars but I cannot recommend using any alternate hardware (such as that from another Thule carrier). What I suggest you do is apply a thread lock compound like Loctite # LT37643 to the hardware's threads. This should prevent the knobs from coming loose on their own but still allow you to remove the carrier if you wish. If you still have an issue then I suggest using...

    The washer plate, part # 853-0333-02 is used to position the front mount along the track of the Thule Sidearm, and you're right, it is missing from the question you were looking at. To fully rebuild the assembly, the correct parts list is: 2 Washer Plates, part # 853-0333-02 2 Wing Nuts, part # 753-0783 2 Carriage Bolts, part # 915-068-054 1 Levelling Gasket, part # 853-7442 1 Metal Bracket, part # 853-5513 1 Clamp Bracket, part # 853-7441 You need to do this for both crossbars if...

  • Will A Thule Big Mouth Fit My Factory Crossbars Without A T-Channel Or Do I Need A New Bike Rack
    The Thule Big Mouth was able to mount to Thule Aero Bars with the xadapt2. That was a t-channel mounting system. I spoke with a Thule rep and she said there was never a mount for aero/factory rack bars that did not have a t-channel. I remember when we wanted to install a Big Mouth to a factory roof rack we had to use the Thule Ride-On Adapter. That was a mini Thule roof rack that added square bars on top of your factory crossbars. So there is not a fix for your situation outside of putting...

  • Adapter Needed for Thule J-Style Kayak Carrier on Rola Roof Rack System for 2012 VW GTI
    If the bolts on your Thule J-Style kayak carriers aren't long enough then you most likely need the adapter kit # THXADAPT11 which is required when installing the Thule Hull-A-Port # TH834 on the Thule AeroBlade crossbars. Since the crossbars on your Rola Sport Series Roof Rack with GTX Mounting System 59736 has a similar shape, you should be able to use the adapter just fine. If you have other J-Style racks that we carry just let me know what they are and I can see if we have similar adapters...

They explained that the Thule WingBar Evo # TH711500 with the Evo Clamp Feet # TH710501 and Fit Kit # TH79RV you installed on your 2023 Honda Ridgeline are not compatible with the Adapter # THXADAPT11 you have on your Hull-A-Port 835PRO. That adapter was only compatible with the AeroBlade roof bars. You will instead need to use the 80mm Bolts # 915-068-054 which came with your 835PRO along with the cradle...
