Video Transcript for Thule Xadapt12 Watersports Adapter Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Xadapt 12 water sports adapter for AeroBlade and AeroBlade edge bars, part number THXADAPT12. This adapter kit enables you to mount either your Thule board shuttle or the Thule Portage to your AeroBlade and AeroBlade edge roof rack load bars. It does so by replacing the original hardware with the T bolts and sliding them into these slots here and then tightening them down. This comes with the tools necessary to tight this down to your vehicle as well. Now that we've gone over some of the features lets go ahead and show you how these install. We're going to install them on our Thule board shuttle. When you open up the package for the adapter kits, you're going to have four T bolts plus these four attachment points, which are going to go onto our board shuttle and fit into the T slot of your Aero bars.

Let's go ahead and show you how that's done. We'll first remove all the attachment points on our board shuttle by unscrewing these turn knows here. Removing those completely. Then we'll insert this top piece here. Then attach our T bolt underneath. Just loosely for now.

We'll repeat this for our other attachment points. With our AeroBlade load bars we'll go ahead and open up the end and going to remove the entire strip. Normally you would take it out and cut it in place to go around your actual accessories but for today's purposes, we'll just take the whole thing out. Then we'll take our T bolt here, line it up, slide them into place. Now once you have them where you want them, we'll take our included Allen tool here. Just go ahead and start tightening down the bolt.

We'll repeat this on the other side. Now we'll go ahead and repeat this for our rear AeroBlade bar. With our accessory installed in the T track, now we're ready to load up our gear and hit the road. There you have it for the Thule Xadapt 12 water sports adapter for AeroBlade and AeroBlade edge bars, part number THXADAPT12.

I used this adapter kit to mount Thule SUP Taxi to my Thule TracRac - TracOne racks. The original SUP Taxi mount-straps were not long to fit these racks, even though the buyers guide indicates they are. This adapter kit made it possible to secure the SUP taxi right to the bar. So glad you had this available! Now I'm ready for our trip to the FL Keys!



by:

Needed this to adapt a Rocky Mounts Driveshaft rack from my old truck to the new one. These fit perfectly in the channel on the 2019 Ram's 'sport utility bar', which is a Thule 393. A little more bolt length than I needed but the extra is not hurting anything...

I have not used the product yet, but am certain it will be great. Thule wants a lot more for it and they take longer to ship for sure.

Adapter works perfectly on 2020 Audi Q5 (VW) But didn’t need all the xtra hardware for Thule Big Mouth bike rack. (Ca 2003) . 3 of the short bolts per unit did the trick and of course the rubber inlays to prevent scratching and rattling are perfect.



by:

Exactly what I needed! The service and shipping was superb. Highly recommend using etrailer!



by:

I used the XADAPT2 kit to convert my Thule Bigmouth bike carriers to fit the OEM Volkswagen cross bars on my 2016 Jetta sedan. The bike carriers originally had clamps to fit the Thule square cross bars, and this kit allowed me to convert the carriers to fit in the T-slots of the VW cross bars. The kit was originally designed for older VWs, but the T-slot dimensions have not changed for the modern VW cross bars. I would venture to guess that the kit should work for the OEM cross bars of any modern VW rather than just the Jetta, since the VW bike carriers are not model specific. A great quality kit, and perfect for my application!



by:

I used this to fit an old (1994) Thule Big Mouth bike rack to a factory 1994 VW Jetta Votex roof rack. The bike rack was originally fitted to a Thule square tube rack. Fits perfect, but has many extra parts. The only parts that were needed my me were 3 square plastic tabs and 3 of the "T" bolts, so there are many left overs, but for the price I don't think I can complain much. I'm glad the kit was available.

Instructions were pretty useless.



by:

Very good quality product with a little problem. Track is connected to a bracket by one bolt and the bolt was getting loose. I had to buy a little bit longer bolt, use a spring washer and washer, problem solved. See picture. Assembly instructions could be better.



by:

Used to mount a bike carrier onto my 2020 Tesla Model Y roof rails. The carrier was an older Mini-branded model and had bolts with heads that were too wide for the Tesla roof rail tracks. These adapters did the trick.



by:

It is as advertised. Enabled me to put my hull-a-port onto a new car with a thicker rack
