Video Transcript for Review of Thule Replacement Trail Cargo Basket U-Bolt - 1500052553

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a quick look at this Thule replacement U-bolt. This is going to replace a single U-bolt for your Thule Trail cargo basket. This will work for both the large and the medium models that you see on the screen there. So if you have either one of those, you can trust this is gonna be the exact replacement that you need since it is coming from Thule. You don't have to worry about fit issues or compatibility problems or anything like that.

But just to give you some extra reassurance, you can see this is going to be right about 3 1/2 inches in inner width there. Our height, we're looking at approximately 1 5/8ths of an inch. So this is going to accommodate your crossbars that are between 5/8ths of an inch and one inch tall and 3 1/2 inches in width. This will attach the roof cargo basket to the existing crossbar for you. So like I said because this is a direct replacement from Thule, you can trust it is gonna fit right in place of that original U-bolt.

That completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.

Very good for mounting a Thule cargo box to Prisu rack. The clearances could be a tad better, but this solution works. I don't recommend getting the larger size as the threads on the U-bolts are only so long and a larger size will leave too much play.

After a year it contributes to work out well. No rust. And the U bolts hold the Thule Cargo box well to the Prinsu Rack.

Just what I was looking for. Thanks!

I had lost the other sized u-bolts that came with my kit and when I purchased a new car it had smaller crossbars, these were perfect replacement u-bolts for my Thule basket



by:

Great! Parts were delivered sooner than expected.



by:

Great selection and quick shipping.



by:

Super easy to find and order the parts I needed. They were shipped out and received quickly which made it even better!!!



by:

Good original replacement part. Good fit



by:

this piece is working well. It was not the precise size needed, so took some bending and manipulating to make work, but now works sufficiently so we're in good enough shape.



by:

I love having a dealer that can solve parts problems. It is hard to find something that is no longer available from the original vendor and elsewhere. I've purchased an item previously and was very happy with the support I received. There was never any issue with returning item if it does not meet my needs. So, what's to worry with making future purchases...none for me.

Exactly what I needed

  • Width Dimension of Replacement Mounting Bracket for Thule Canyon Roof Cargo Baskets
    I wasn't 100% sure which part of the Replacement Mounting Bracket # 1500052559 you were thinking of as the width so I took some measurements and attached them on a photo for you to check out. If you're needing replacement hardware for the Thule Canyon then you can use the Kit # 7521807001 along with 4 of the Mounting Plate # 1500052558, and 4 of the U-Bolt # 1500052553.

  • Are There Replacement U-Bolts For Thule Evolution Cargo Box
    I may have a solution for you, but there is not a U-bolt available from Thule that is 3-1/2" wide by 3" deep. The closest option available is the Replacement U-Bolt for Thule Trail Large and Medium Cargo Baskets # 1500052553 that is 3-1/2" wide and 1-5/8" deep. Depending on the bar type, you could likely make this work; aero style bars would be the best fit since they'll have the lowest height in most cases. If you wanted to do some light modification then you could technically use any...

  • Replacement Thule U-Bolts
    If you're needing a u bolt that has a width of 4 inches and a height of 2 inches you can use this replacement U-Bolt # TH02943. If you're needing a 3-1/2 inch wide U-Bolt that's only 1-5/8 inches tall you can use this U-Bolt # 1500052553. We have the replacement knobs # 753-0745 as well. Unfortunately the Mountaineer Roof Box is discontinued and so are the U-Bolts. Measure the distance between the holes to get an idea of what width we're looking for. You may need to drill new holes if there...
