Replaces 1 load bar clip for your Thule XT fairing for load bars. Fits all older model Thule AirScreen fairings.


I ordered the replacement clips for my Thule wind fairing to fit my aftermarket roof rack crossbars and was worried they would not fit since the service rep at Thule said the fairing could only be fitted to square crossbars, which mine are not. I saw these clips at etrailer and they looked to be the same shape as my crossbars and since they were so cheap I ordered a set. It turned out they fit perfectly and am now able to use the fairing after all.

Chris P.


still works great, no issues


To be fair, I bought this to adapt my Thule fairing to a non-Thule rack. While not perfect, it fits well enough to work. Nice having that adaptability so I didn't have to spend on another fairing.


Working well a year later, no complaints


Worked perfectly to replace the old, brittle plastic for my Thule wind deflector.


I have an older Thule roof rack fairing and a few of the clips that hold the fairing to the roof rack had failed. I was concerned that I would have to replace the entire assembly for more than $xxx. I was delighted to find that etrailer had the fairing clips. They saved me close to $xxx and the fairing for the roof rack is as good as new a very after I installed the clips. Thanks, etrailer!


Well made and perfect fit. Order was processed quickly and tracking was flawless.


The load clip bar was a very good price and fit perfect on my fairing


The parts fitted perfect! I even have an off brand $40 roof rack and they looked to be the same shape and they snapped right on! I got the fairing for free from a friend and it was nice spending less than $20 to get them fitted perfect.


I went through an automatic car wash and the fairway was ripped from the roof rack when I rolled out. Went looking for this part and etrailer was the only one who had it. Fits great on my Thule wind visor, easy install. From what I can tell it looks identical to original clip. Broken clip on left, etrailer replacement clip attached to visor. Fast delivery.


The clips are exactly what is needed and are identical to the originals. And they came quickly with the tracking info extremely accurate. etrailer is a very serious and competent company that is a great resource for Thule spare parts and obviously many other wonderful products


This was a part I need to replace on a legacy Thule wind fairing. I could not find the part anywhere, even on the Thule website. Fortunately I was able to locate and order it on the website. Another part (same Thule product also needed replacement, about a day after and I also found and ordered that part from Etrailer. I just wish I could have ordered them both at the same time, and saved the shipping costs on the 2nd order. Definitely happy that I was able to find both parts here!


Very happy with the product, fit perfectly and install was a breeze. Such a breeze I’m actually upset that I put this part off for so long! Great quality, and shipping was great as well. Even received the package 2 days early! Thanks etrailer, great work and keep it up!


Excellent product at a very reasonable cost! Will go to again for all my future adventure needs!


The Thule load bar clip is a small but essential part of the roof rack fairing system. While searching the web for a replacement, what caught my attention was how easy it was to find it via "," even compared to the manufacturer's website and other sporting good outlets that carry the Thule brand. Unlike those other sites, "" let me see exactly what I looking for, making this replacement procedure quick and seamless. I had the part in just a few days. Definitely will recommend this vendor for hard to find parts.



So far so good - the Thule wind fairing load bar clips are working great, just as designed. They are only stressed twice per year: once on spring and once off fall. If they become brittle with age or slight usage I havent noticed it. And again, its great that etrailer has the inventory and easily navigated web site to help find these parts.


They’re good.


Clips arrived on time and were able to be installed in minutes. Good quality and great price! Completed the addition of my wind visor for my Thule roof rack.


Everthing fits like a glove at half the price!


I have had a great experience with I have purchased Thule parts to repair a Thule fairing damaged at in an automated car wash and the parts fit perfectly, restoring my Thule rack to brand new condition. I also purchased a trailer hitch which i installed myself. The instructions provided were excellent.


Perfect fit. Fast delivery and reasonable price.


The product doesn't have dimensions that the hook will go around and I thought that these would fit on my crossbars but the bars are too wide and these won't fit. I can't return them or else I would lose more money on shipping. Pretty disappointed that I can't get my money back because the dimensions are wrong.

These fairing mounting clips are meant for use with Thule square profile crossbars with the # 853-7362 adapters or the old elliptical profile Thule crossbars, but not the Aeroblade.


Perfect replacement for my Thule wind fairing. Fast shipping and inexpensive.

Ben O.


Still works like original parts.


What you see is what you get and it's exactly what you need. Speedy delivery and excellent customer service...I'll be ordering for these guys again for sure!


Similarly to my other reviews my bike carrier and roof rack were damaged by a tree. I'm glad to find the misc parts I need to restore my setup. etrailer has the best price on all the items I needed. These were back ordered, but etrailer did a great job notifying me of the status of my order. I was very happy when they got these in stock faster then they estimated!


1 of the 2 clips did break and they do not fit thule square bars. Also, no hardware is provided.

Thule does not include hardware with many of their replacement parts as most often the original hardware can be re-used. In order to install these clips on a Thule Square Bar, this adapter 853-7362 is required.

  • Replacement Clip for Attaching Thule Roof Rack Fairing
    It looks as if you have an older fairing, and not the Thule AirScreen, so the # 8528583001 would not be compatible. For the fairing you have (judging by what little I can see in the photo you provided), you'd need the # 8537361 clips.

  • Thule Fairing Clamps that Secure To Cargo Basket
    That appears to be a Thule fairing for one of their cargo baskets. We have replacement mounts for it with the part # 853-5818 since it's supposed to have 5 clamps instead of the 3 that you have left.

  • Availability of Replacement Fastening Clips for Thule Roof Rack Fairing
    Looking at your photo, it's hard to make out which clips your fairing is currently using. The newer AirScreen fairing uses the # 8528583001 as a replacement while the older model used # 8537361. I've put together a photo for you showing them side by side, so you can compare to what you already have.

  • Replacement Wind Fairing Clips For a Thule TH871XT Wind Fairing
    The TH871XT wind fairing was replaced by the AirScreen XT # TH72WV. Meaning you likely have the old style clips, which are the Replacement Load Bar Clip for Thule Roof Rack Fairing # 8537361. The Replacement Clips for Thule AirScreen XT Fairing # TH22NH are for the newer XT wind fairings like the 870200, 870201, and 870202. The easiest way to tell which ones you need for sure is to compare them to the current clips on the the wind fairing. I have included a picture that shows what the...

    Correct, the Replacement Load Bar Clip for Thule Roof Rack Fairing part # 8537361 and the Thule Square Bar Adapter for Fairing part # 853-7362 are what you need to repair your Thule Wind Fairing.

  • Can Older Style Thule Wind Fairing Be Retro-Fitted with Newer Mounting Hardware for Aero Crossbars
    Your older Thule Fairing TH872XT has an outdated mounting system which we have a replacement for as part # 8537361, but this is the same as the older mounting system so it unfortunately won't be compatible with your Yakima JetStream crossbars. Since this is the case you'll need a new fairing that's designed to fit the aero-style crossbars. For an upgrade directly from Thule we have the 44" AirScreen XT # TH82WV which uses the newest style of mounting brackets, or we also have some Yakima...

  • Roof Rack Fairing that Will Fit Factory Subaru Roof Rack Crossbars
    Replacement clip # 8537361 is the same as what comes on the newer XT Thule windscreens and it does not fit the older model fairings so either way it would not work with the Subaru factory bars. You will need a more universal fairing. Rhino-Rack has several options depending on the length you need: # RRRF1 is 32 inches long # RRRF2 is 38 inches long # RRRF3 is 44 inches long # RRRF4 is 50 inches long

  • Is the Rhino Rack Steel Mesh Cargo Tray Compatible with Thule Bars and Fairing
    You should have no problem installing the Rhino-Rack Steel Mesh, Roof Mounted Cargo Tray # RPBS-S280 on your Thule square cross bars that have a Thule 38 inch Fairing # TH72WV installed on them. The fairing should not give the rack an uneven look as the clips of the fairing are pretty thick. However, what you could do is install a couple Replacement Load Bar Clip for Thule Roof Rack Fairings # 8537361 on the rear cross bar as well so that the # RPBS-S280 would sit as level as possible...

  • Can a Fairing be Added to Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack Crossbars
    No, the Thule fairing Load Bar Clip, # 8537361, does not fit the AeroBlade crossbars. If your bars are at or under 1-1/4" tall x 3-1/2" wide then you could use a Rhino-Rack fairing. There are several sizes: # RRRF1 for a 32 inch # RRRF2 for a 38 inch # RRRF3 for a 44 inch # RRRF4 for a 50 inch Thule does not offer a fairing for the AeroBlade bars because they say they are quiet enough and aerodynamic enough to do without one.

  • Fairing that Can Fit 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Factory Crossbars
    I have a fairing solution for your 2021 Subaru Crosstrek with factory crossbars but there isn't a way to adapt a Thule fairing that was designed for a square bar. Instead we have Yakima fairings which can fit all crossbar sizes/shapes so that would be the way to go. You'd need to measure the distance between the raised rails of your roof and go with a fairing that fits between them the best. For a 46 inch fairing you'd need part # Y05018, for 40 inch you'd want the part # Y05017, for 34...

    You may need to measure the crossbars on your 2014 Volvo S60 to make sure a fairing will fit. We offer fairings of different lengths by Rhino-Rack that may be a fit for you. These fairings will work on crossbars with a maximum dimension of 3-1/2 inches wide X 1-1/4 inches tall. We offer these fairings in 3 different lengths. For a 32 inch fairing you will need to order part # RRRF1. For a 38 inch fairing part # RRRF2 is what you will need, and for a 44 inch fairing you can order part...

They come in the following lengths: 32" - part # TH62WV 38" - part # TH72WV 44" - part # TH82WV Since you already bought a fairing you can try using the Replacement Load Bar Clip # 8537361 for Thule crossbars, but there is no guarantee that it is compatible with a different fairing.
