How Does Surco Safari Rooftop Cargo Basket # SPS5084-T400 Mount to Thule Square Crossbars


Does it come with hardware to mount the basket to Thule square loadbar LB58? If not, what mounting hardware do I need?

Expert Reply:

The Surco Safari Rooftop Cargo Basket for Thule roof rack crossbars, part # SPS5084-T400, will mount to Thule square crossbars using included hardware. This lightweight aluminum basket comes with adapters that clamp around the roof rack crossbars; you do not need to purchase this separately.

Note that the capacity of this basket to carry cargo is limited by the vehicle roof weight limit. You will want to take a look at your owners manual for specifics or check with your local dealership to confirm how much weight the vehicle can handle. Also, keep in mind that the 40-lb weight of this basket counts toward the vehicle weight limit. For example, if the vehicle roof is rated for 100-lbs, then you could safely load about 60-lbs of cargo in this 40-lb basket.

For reference, please note that there are several accessory items available for use with this cargo basket.
In case any of these are of interest, we offer a Spare Tire Carrier, part # SPST100; a Light Mounting Kit, part # SPLT100 (which does not include the light itself); and an Ax and Shovel Carrier, part # SPAX100.
