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.




by:

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




by:

Exactly what I needed




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 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:

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.




by:

Good original replacement part. Good fit

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...
