Great product. Great communication from etrailer as well.


The rack came in days. Great customer service and Yakima delivers on quality again. Another happy customer!


Perfect! Very fast shipping.
I bought
these roof racks used online but one of the bars was missing the end caps so I went online to order new caps.
These fit perfectly.

Thank you very much.

Great, very satisfied

The end caps well someone else had Thule racks and decided to take mine so I needed to replace them so the bars don't sing.

Same thing happened to me. First trip out in town after installation, someone took the end cap off my 7503. Cannot find replacement part.

This was my first time ordering from etrailer. Ordering was easy, items arrived in a reasonably time. The end caps fit well and seem to be of equal quality to the original end caps on my other vehicle. Time will tell if they hold up as well. I would order again.

The end caps are working fine, no complaints.
Louis G - 07/17/2019


These endcaps are a perfect, snug fit for a non-Thule square bar roof rack system. They are far superior to the original, cheaply made and poor fitting endcaps they will replace (actually they are only replacing two of the originals; the other two couldn't maintain their grip, and were long ago lost.) Thanks Thule and etrailer!


Put these side by side with the Thule end caps and the only difference you will see is the price. The three things the consumer seeks is:
1) Value for the money.
2) Quality product.
3) Good Service. provides all of the above in stellar fashion. In fact these were so inexpensive I ordered extra sets to have on hand just in case I lost any.


This cap fits Thule traditional square roof rack bars. I was surprised caps were not included with the bars. The caps keep the bar ends from 'whistling' while driving. They just slide on, and (so far) have stayed on. I bought an extra just in case I lose one.


This part is needed to seal the ends of the Thule square load bar. Why Thule doesn't provide them when you buy the bar makes little sense to me.
Thank heaven for etrailer. I got the caps quick before the rain got into the bar and caused rust. Great service and an extensive Thule parts inventory.


The Replacement Endcap for Thule Roof Rack was well packaged and performed exactly as advertised. The price on etrailer was actually less than on one very popular big brand websites. I appreciated the email updates I received about the status of my order and when it shipped.


Am I am ever going to write a review....

used to get really great customer from other stores but they decided it cost too much and both of them went right into the toilet.

I sent Geoff a photo of my mystery rack and feet, and in a few minutes he found out what I had, and what I needed (exactly) and within a couple of days....the box is on my step.

It won't take ten minutes to install and I'm good as new. I'll need a receiver hitch and LED lights and I know exactly where to go for that.....I'm going to need a "etrailer" T shirt too!!

You guys have your s**t together, and I am glad to have your help and customer service. You'll get an excellent review from me!


I ordered new 58" Thule Square Load bars as my 50" bars no longer fit my new vehicle. Very easy to do online, great follow-up from a rep from eTrailer (George J) and the product arrived on a very timely basis. I would definitely recommend!!


etrailer has a great selection of small parts for Thule racks. Their customer service is very good - knowledgeable, quick and friendly, and their prices are the lowest I've found.


Easy ordering, and parcel delivered in a timely fashion.

Own Ford Transit 250 with Ford Roof Rack. Replacement end caps unavailable from Ford, these Thule Square end caps fit perfectly.


The crossbar end caps were a perfect fit for our Thule cartop carrier. Reasonable shipping charge, prompt delivery, great service!


A great replacement part for my daughter Honda Civic Thule rack. She uses it up in Vermont for transporting her snowboard to the mountain.


Great replacement parts for Thule racks. Ordering was easy and product arrived in a short amount of time.


Very satisfied with this site. Shipping was super fast and the part was accurately described and fit right onto my roof rack with ease!


Just bought to replace a broken one from my current set. Fast shipping by etrailer. Thanks!

Still looks like new though I know it wont last forever
Troy - 09/18/2017


Extremely easy to order; product was received quickly, and worked very well to replace a missing Thule load bar end-cap. Our car no longer whistles when we travel down the highway.


Fit fine. Ordered two.


It is what it should be....satisfied and thankful that etrailer stocks parts for Thule.
Thule's wed page is a disasted....etrailer saved me.


I am a repeat customer to etrailer for this same product. They keep getting knocked off for some reason but etrailer keeps making it possible to keep my racks looking good. Product arrives quickly in good condition and just as described.


Perfect replacement. Love dealing with etrailer!

Couldn’t be happier.

  • Replacement End Caps for Inno Square Crossbars
    For a replacement end cap to use with your Inno Square Crossbars, I recommend the Replacement Endcap for Thule Roof Rack Square Load Bars part # 853-3593. The Inno and Thule crossbars are the same size (7/8" tall x 1-1/4" wide) so they should work together just fine. Unfortunately, we do not have the replacement Inno end caps so the above will be your best option.

    It depends on your bike mount and brand. Yakima has their Universal Mighty Mounts # Y03590 that should help with most of your Yakima carriers.

  • Will New Thule Evo SauareBars Work with Older Crossroad Feet TH450
    Yes, the new Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbars, like # TH712500 and the older Thule Square Load Bars share the same dimensions (1-1/4 inch wide by 7/8 inch tall), so you'd be able to use either bar with the now discontinued Crossroad Feet part TH450 since they would just slide through the opening on top of the foot. The new Rapid Crossroad Feet # TH450R use the channel on the bottom of the newer bars to attach to them instead. I noticed you were also looking at the Inno square bars # INB137,...
