Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with, we're going to take a quick look at the Thule replacement load bar. This bar is going to replace one square load bar for your Thule ride-on adapter so that you can adapt to your factory roof rack system.This bar is just like the original, right at 31 and a half inches in total length. As far as our other measurements go, it's right about . I'm going to call it one and a quarter of an inch wide by probably seven eights of an inch tall.So if you are needing a new square bar for your Thule ride-along adapter, this is going to be the piece for you. It is a Thule product so you can trust that it's going to work for your application, you're not going to have to worry about compatibility issues or anything like that.All the brackets and mounting clamps that came with the ride-on system will work for this as well as the other bike carriers and different Thule products.

Great packing, fast shipping. I needed to trim/grind the edges on the ends a bit to make it easier to slide the Thule accessories on and off.

Excellent service thank you


Ask the Experts about this Thule Roof Rack

  • Can Thule Ride-On Roof Rack Adapter Use Longer Thule Square Crossbars
    The Thule Ride-On Adapter is a great way to add a broadly-compatible square bar rack to an existing factory roof rack to allow installation of accessory carriers like their Big Mouth bike carrier TH599XTR that won't fit on some factory bars. Since some carriers will fit only on certain factory racks the Ride-On adapter lets you keep on using your bike carrier even once you've changed to a new vehicle that has incompatible roof rack bars. The standard length bars that come with the Ride-On...

  • Can I Use New Thule Square Crossbars With My Old Thule Crossroads Feet
    Yes we do. The foot you have is the Thule Crossroads foot and we still have square crossbars that will fit that foot. It will also work on the raised rails of your 2022 Toyota Sienna. You will need the Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbars - Steel - 53" Long - Qty 2, part # TH712400. These crossbars are different from the old crossbars. They have a channel underneath to fit the new Thule feet, but they are backwards compatible. You will be able to use them with your Thule feet.

  • Width and Height of the Thule Replacement Load Bar # 853-0182-35
    The dimensions of the Thule Replacement Load Bar # 853-0182-35 is 1-1/4 inches wide x 7/8 inches tall. These are the same measurements as Thule square crossbars like the Thule SquareBar Evo # TH712500. However, since it doesn't have a bottom channel, it will not fit with feet that are designed for the SquareBar Evo crossbars. I went ahead and attached a video that shows these dimensions starting at timestamp :30.

  • Available Adapter to Fit Older Yakima Roof Mount Bike Racks on a 2016 Ford Explorer w/ Factory Bars
    I contacted Yakima to see if they offered an adaptor that will allow the Viper and SteelHead bike racks to attach to the factory crossbars of the 2016 Ford Explorer. Unfortunately, they told me that there is no adapter that can attach to these racks that will attach to the factory crossbars. Fork style mounts will not mount directly to factory crossbars. The bike mount gets its side to side stability from the crossbar. Fork mounts stress crossbars more that upright styles because of their...

  • Can I Get A Single Thule Crossbar, Pair Of Thule Evo Feet, And Half Thule Fit Kit 5271
    I spoke to a Thule representative and Thule no longer carries single crossbars unless they are the Thule WingBar Edge. The same goes for the Thule fit kits and Thule feet only being sold in sets of four. If you decide to go with the parts you will need the following items: Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbars - Steel - 60" Long - Qty 2, part # TH712500 Evo Clamp Feet for Thule Crossbars - Naked Roofs - Qty 4, part # TH710501 Fit Kit for Thule Evo Clamp Roof Rack Feet - 145271, part # TH29TX I...

  • Will A Thule Big Mouth Fit My Factory Crossbars Without A T-Channel Or Do I Need A New Bike Rack
    The Thule Big Mouth was able to mount to Thule Aero Bars with the xadapt2. That was a t-channel mounting system. I spoke with a Thule rep and she said there was never a mount for aero/factory rack bars that did not have a t-channel. I remember when we wanted to install a Big Mouth to a factory roof rack we had to use the Thule Ride-On Adapter. That was a mini Thule roof rack that added square bars on top of your factory crossbars. So there is not a fix for your situation outside of putting...
