Video Transcript for Review of Thule PowerClick Cargo Box T-Track Adapter Kit - TH27PQ

Hi there. I'm Michael with Today, we're gonna take a quick look at these T-Track Adapter Kit for your Thule cargo boxes. This kit is going to allow you to attach the Thule cargo box directly to your T-tracks on your crossbars, So it is going to replace the PowerClick clamps on your Thule cargo box, so this kit is specifically designed for those cargo boxes with the PowerClick mounting clamps. So the way this is gonna work, you'll take out your mounting clamps, you'll pass these through the T-tracks on your crossbars, this will fit with your 20 millimeter T-track width, and then once you have those in place, you'll be able to set your cargo box down on top of it, this will pass through the holes in the box, and then you'll put the larger portion on the inside of the box where your clamps normally would go, and then you can tighten it down, like so, inside, so that you'll have a nice snug fit like you're used to. So if you are wanting to use those T-tracks rather than having the mounting clamps that go around your crossbars, this is gonna be a great option for you.

Because this is from Thule, you can trust it is gonna work with the Thule cargo box, you're not gonna have to worry about fit issues or anything like that. They do include all of the hardware that you're gonna need to get these installed, as well as instructions that walk you through that process a little bit better than I just did. But then you can see on the bottom of these brackets are gonna be these portions that stick up or stick down into that track where your clamps typically go, so that's gonna help prevent that from moving at all, so when you have it tightened down, it is gonna be nice and snug in there for you. So very easy to get installed, to get switched out in place of those PowerClick mounting clamps. This does come with a limited lifetime warranty, so if you we're to have any problems with it, you're more than welcome to reach out to us here at

We're always happy to work with our customers to make sure you're getting good quality products and having a good experience. So overall, I think this is gonna be a great option if you are looking to use those T-tracks rather than the clamps, this is gonna be exactly what you need. So that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with Thanks for watching..

T-Track Adapter for Thule Cargo Boxes with PowerClick - TH27PQ

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (8 Customer Reviews)

Adapter lets you attach your Thule cargo box (sold separately) into the T-tracks of your crossbars. Replaces standard Thule PowerClick cargo box mounting system. Fits crossbars with 20 mm T-track width. Easy installation with included hardware.


M8 T bolts with head dimensions 20mm x 27mm fit Thule TracRac SR top rail T slots perfect. M8 51mm (2 inch) long T bolts and wing nuts can be used to mount any accessory to Thule TracRac SR top rail T slot or any crossbar with 20mm T slots. Kit is a bit pricy to use only quantity 4 T bolts and quantity 4 wing nuts however worth it since these are the only long M8 T bolts I could find to fit 20mm T slot cross bars.


ETrailer comes through again! Needed this adapter to install a Thule cargo box on Dropracks. ETrailer get 5 plus stars! Product works as expected but gets 4 stars for the price, though it's typical for Thule products.


etrailer was my last call of many in my search for the parts I needed which included the manufacturer.
Service was great, delivery timely and the instructional videos very helpful.
Next time etrailer will be my first call!


Quick and what I ordered.

  • Do I Have To Use The Thule T-Track Adapter For My Rooftop Cargo Box?
    You will be able to use either the T-Track Adapter # TH27PQ or the provided clamps with the Thule roof mounted cargo boxes. The adapter is just another way of mounting the cargo box to your Thule rails. Some may find this way of mounting better for a more secure long term mount as it does not have the exposed legs that clamp around the crossbars.

  • What Mounts Will The Thule T-Track Adapter # TH27PQ Work With?
    I reached out to Thule to verify and they explained the T-Track Adapter # TH27PQ will only work on cargo boxes which use the PowerClick attachment points. Your Hyper XL uses the AcuTight Mount # TH7521484001 and and according to Thule they do not have any kits which are compatible with your cargo box.

  • How to Determine if the Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box Fits a 2021 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road
    The easiest way to determine if the Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613501 will fit your 2021 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road, is going to be to measure your crossbars. The Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613501 needs a crossbar spread between 21-7/8" - 36-3/4" and the crossbar height needs to be between 3/4"-1-1/8" with a crossbar width no larger than 3-1/2". You will also need at least 54" between your front crossbar and the line where your roof meets the hatch in order...

  • Is The T-Track Adapter For Thule Cargo Boxes W/ PowerClick Compatible With Yakima Jetstream?
    Yes, the T-Track Adapter for Thule Cargo Boxes with PowerClick # TH27PQ will work with your Yakima Jetstream Crossbars # Y00427. This will eliminate the need for you to secure your Thule Sonic XL Cargo Carrier around your cross bars, and will simply secure into the t-tracks of your Jetstream Crossbars.

  • Will The T-Track Adapter for Thule Cargo Boxes with PowerClick Work W/ The Thule Evolution 1600?
    The T-Track Adapter for Thule Cargo Boxes with PowerClick # TH27PQ is only designed to work with Thule Cargo Boxes that utilize the PowerClick mounting style, and it appears that your Thule Evolution 1600 cargo box uses the Quick-Snap mounting style. With that being said, since this kit is not going to work with your cargo box and a wider U-bolt is not going to work either, your only option is to sell your current cargo box and replace it with another cargo box like the: -Thule Force...

  • Will Thule Rooftop Carrier Fit the Crossbars on the Thule TracRac SR Ladder Rack
    The Thule Quick Grip won't fit around the crossbars for the TracRac SR # TH43002XT-781 on your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500, however you can upgrade your mounting hardware to the T-Track Mounting Hardware # TH27PQ if your rooftop box has a PowerClick mounting clamp so that it installs directly into the T-Track instead. If you have a different box let me know and I can see if we have any other solutions for you.

  • Will the Thule Sidekick Cargo Box Fit Malone Crossbars on a 2021 VW Atlas
    I checked with Thule and the Thule Sidekick item # TH78GC is not compatible with the T-Track Adapter for Thule Cargo Boxes item # TH27PQ. It fits only the cargo boxes with the PowerClick attachment points. The T-Track adapter would not be a better option, over the included hardware, to mount the Sidekick on the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack item # MPG216. It would push the cargo box up higher on the crossbars. The included u-bolts will have the bottom of the Sidekick mounted flush to the top...

  • What Brand Roof Cargo Boxes Have T-Slot Adapters Available
    We have T-slot adapters for Thule cargo boxes with the part # TH27PQ and Inno boxes with the part # INBRP12 but at this time Yakima does not offer any adapters like this. I attached a link to this page that shows all of the Inno boxes we offer as well as all of the Thule boxes we offer.

  • Can Roof Cargo Box be Installed on Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack
    The Yakima SkyBox roof cargo boxes have a clamping mechanism designed to fit around standard crossbars and the slats on the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack for Crossbars # Y05044-39 are larger than standard crossbars and there is no adapter for any Yakima box to fit into a T-Slot like what you find on the LockNLoad. If you're willing to swap out your cargo box though you can use a Thule brand like the Thule Force XT XL # TH6358B and then get the T-Track Adapter # TH27PQ so the box can mount...

  • Can Thule Motion XT XXL Cargo Box Attach to Thule TracRac SR Ladder Rack Load Bars
    This is a really great question, so what you'll need is the T-Track Adapter part # TH27PQ to allow you to moun the Thule Motion XT XXL cargo box part # TH6359B onto the much thicker TracRac ladder rack load bars. This adapts the hardware of the box to attach to the channels that are on top of the load bars instead of trying to wrap all the way around them.

  • Roof Cargo Box Recommendation to Fit Thule TracRac SR Ladder Rack
    You are correct that the TracRac SR crossbars are wider than standard roof rack crossbars as they measure 4" wide. For your application I recommend the Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box - 22 cu ft # TH629906 which comes with mounting hardware that clamps onto standard crossbars, but you can upgrade the mounting hardware using the T-Track Adapter # TH27PQ. This allows you to mount the cargo box via the T-Slots in your TracRac SR crossbars instead of clamping around them. The only issue...

  • Can Thule Cargo Box Attach to Yakima Overhaul HD Load Bars
    Some Thule cargo boxes can fit to the top channels of your Yakima OverHaul HD ladder rack # Y01151-5955 with the T-Track Adapter for Thule Cargo Boxes with PowerClick # TH27PQ. The box would need to be a newer one with PowerClick hardware like the Thule Motion part # TH629806. The load bars of the ladder rack are too big for the hardware to fit around.

  • Can The Yakima CBX Cargo Box Fit On The Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack?
    I did some research, and the Yakima CBX Rooftop Cargo Box # Y66FR that you mention will not work with the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack # RR77AB due to the clamps that come with the cargo box not being able to clamp around the wider bars, and that there is no adapter kit to allow this to happen. Instead, you'd have to use a different cargo box like the: -Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box # TH629706 with the T-Track Adapter for Thule Cargo Boxes with PowerClick # TH27PQ. This cargo...

  • Can I Mount My Inno Bike Carrier and The Thule Pulse M to My AirFlow 2 Crossbars on My 2013 Impreza?
    When it comes to t-tracks (also knows as t-channels) on crossbars like the Malone AirFlow 2 # MPG215, most channel hardware are interchangeable on roof-mounted crossbars. To provide more perspective, the rectangular nut that fits the Malone crossbars (from part # MPG6604) measure 25mm long x 20mm wide x 4.5mm high. With that being said, yes, I confirmed with Malone that your Inno 20mm t-track mounts should work. As far as fitting a Thule Pulse 614 M # TH614 with an adapter like with the...

  • Recommended Cargo Box for Roof Rack with 42 Inch Crossbar Spread
    I have a solution for you, but you're not going to be able to use the # TH27PQ to accomplish this. You'll need to find a cargo box that can be used on roof rack systems with a 42" crossbar spread and the only option we have for that is the Yakima SkyBox 21 # Y07337 -which has a maximum allowable crossbar spread of 42" and will mount to round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars (maximum dimensions of 3-1/2" x 1-11/16"). The Yakima SkyBox does come equipped with locks for...

  • Roof Clearance for ROC25 Roof Racks and Finding Compatible Cargo Boxes
    The Rhino-Rack ROC25 Roof Rack # RR78TR is a newer system designed to be extremely low profile. The exact roof clearance depends on how much your roof slopes. When we installed this on a 2019 Nissan Rogue, we found the clearance from the roof to the bottom of the FRONT bars to be 1-1/2 inches at the center of the roof and 2 inches near the towers. The rear bars only had a half inch of clearance! I attached the review video at the bottom of the page if you want to see it in action. We played...

  • Roof Rack Fit on 2018 Dodge Durango With Sunroof & Naked Roof
    There is an option for a roof rack that will fit your 2018 Dodge Durango that has a sunroof & naked roof (which simply means no rails on top). The one that will fit is from Yakima and is made up of a few different parts: - Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00426 - BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y28TR - BaseClip Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06180 Not only is this Yakima rack a fit for your '18 Durango, but it will also give you the best roof rack you can get for...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for Bike Rack and Cargo Box on 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross with Naked Roof
    Thanks for reaching out! For your application we'll need to stick with the Yakima JetStream system since Thule doesn't have a fit for your 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross naked roof at this time (January 2023). The 50" JetStream crossbars will be a great size for fitting both the Thule FastRide Roof Bike Rack # TH95JV and Thule Force XT Sport Rooftop Cargo Box # TH6356B. Here are the parts you'll need for the complete roof rack system: 50" JetStream Crossbars - Black # Y00425 or Silver # Y00428 BaseLine...
