Review of the Thule Force Alpine Roof Cargo Box

Today we will be reviewing the Thule Force Alpine Roof Top Cargo Box, 12 cubic feet, black in color, part number TH623. This stylish and aerodynamic cargo box holds skis, snowboards, small luggage and other gear. It is low profile and small enough to fit in most garages or parking structures. The box comes with quick grip mounting hardware that provides tool-free installation on your roof rack. The box also allows you to reposition the mounting hardware so that your box can fit on smaller vehicles. There are two load straps included with the cargo box that works with built-in anchor points on quick grip hardware to secure your gear.

On the box itself is an oversized secure lock that ensures the boxes lock and close properly. They key can only be removed when the box is closed and locked. The Alpine box has dual side opening lids that allow you to unload your gear from either side of the vehicle. The box is constructed of an AVS plastic and is resistant to impacts, weather, and harsh UV rays. It has a diamond-textured aero-skin lid which makes it aerodynamic and stylish and also helps reduce drag and wind noise.

The force alpine has a carrying capacity of 12 cubic feet. It is made in the USA. It can be mounted to round, square, arrow, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. The exterior dimensions of the Force Alpine is 81 and a half inches long, 24 inches wide, and 17 inches high. The interior dimensions of the force alpine are 77 1/2 inches long by 22 1/2 inches wide by 15 inches tall.

Now, that we've gone over some features and specs of the two-way force Alpine Roof Top Box, we'll go ahead and show you how to install it. Before we begin our installation process, we will need to loosen up the four knobs on the inside of the box to loosen up the claws. Now, with an extra set of hands, we'll set the cargo box onto our crossbars of the vehicle. Now, in setting the cargo box onto the crossbars, it is important that the box is perpendicular to the crossbars to ensure a good fit. We'll position the claws over the crossbars.

Now, we'll go ahead and tighten down the claws to the crossbars of the vehicle by tightening down the four knobs inside of the cargo box. Once all four knobs have been tightened down and the box is secured to the vehicle, we're ready to load up our cargo. We'll go ahead and set our skis into the Alpine Cargo Box. Now, well go ahead and use the included straps and the anchor points to tie down the skis to the box and prevent the skis from being damaged. Now that our cargo is secure, we're ready to show you how it looks driving down the road. That completes today's review of the Thule Force Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box, part number TH623.
