Thule Fit Kit Clamping to Vehicle

The fit kit clips are easy to install on Evo Clamp feet. Simply remove the lockable covers on the feet, then slide the clips into the clip retainers. The clips will click into place when properly installed.

Thule Fit Kit Single Attachment Point

To complete installation, place the fully assembled rack on your roof at the location specified in the fit kit manual. Tighten the rack in place with the torque tool included with the Evo Clamp. The single attachment point bolt lets you quickly secure the crossbars to the feet and the feet to your door jambs simultaneously. An audible click from the torque tool indicates the rack is secured properly.

This fits perfect on my 2015 WRX STI. The instructions list the width between the bars as wider than they should be. I had to move the front and the rear in. This wasn’t a problem because I waited until I was done to cut the rubber underside trim. I have no noise with this setup.


Fast processing and shipping. Product intact and undamaged. Satisfied with the purchase!

  • Can you Get Just the Foot Pads for Thule Roof Racks
    Thule does not offer the foot pads alone of their roof racks. We do have the fit kits that are available to your 2013 Subaru Impreza, though. I was unable to find which roof rack you have based on the numbers you gave me, but the two Thule fit kits available for your Impreza are: Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet- 3068 - part # THKIT3068 Fit Kit for Thule Evo Clamp Roof Rack Feet - 5178 - part # TH145178

  • Recommended Length of Thule Square Crossbars for 2016 Subaru WRX
    The recommended length of Thule square crossbar for a 2016 Subaru WRX sedan is the 53 inch Thule SquareBar Crossbars # TH712400. For your Subaru's naked roof the rest of the rack is made up of Evo Clamp Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH710501 and Fit Kit # TH145178. This will give your '16 WRX a highly functional and durable roof rack which gives you the ability to carry all types of different cargo. The crossbars are made of galvanized steel to ensure they are free from rust and and even...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2019 Subaru WRX
    I recommend going with the Thule Roof Rack for Subaru WRX that uses the Thule Wingbar Evo # TH711400, Evo Clamp Feet # TH710501 and Fit kit # TH145178 since it's got the aerodynamic Wingbar Evo that will help reduce the wind noise that often accompanies these roof racks. I've linked a video that shows how this rack looks on your 2019 WRX as well as how it will install that you may want to have a look at as well.

  • Availability of Fit Kit for Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack for a 2015 Subaru WRX
    The correct fit kit to mount the (discontinued) Thule Rapid Traverse foot pack TH480R to your 2015 Subaru WRX is the discontinued part THKIT1649. Thule has been doing a complete remake of their products and so basically all of their roof rack and bike racks have been changed to a newer style that better accommodates newer vehicles. I reached out to my contact at Thule to see if the newer fit kit will work with the Rapid Traverse foot pack but he said that none of those parts are interchangeable. Luckily...

  • Roof Rack for both a 2015 Toyota Prius and a 2016 Subaru Impreza 4 Door
    I would be happy to help you find a roof rack for your 2016 Subaru Impreza four door and for your 2015 Toyota Prius. There is one brand of roof rack by Thule that is going to have two out of the three required parts to fit both vehicles. You will however need different feet for the individual vehicles. For your Impreza you will want the 2015 Subaru Impreza Roof Rack by Thule. The roof rack includes: Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 53" Long - Qty 2 item # TH711420 Evo...

  • Thule Roof Rack Fit For 2016 Subaru Impreza Sedan
    Completely understandable that you don't want to be wasting your time and money, so I checked with Thule for you, and while there is a Thule roof rack that fits your 2016 Subaru Impreza sedan, your current 400xt foot pack will not work with a fit kit for this vehicle, which means you do need a new roof rack set up. The Thule roof rack that fits your '16 Impreza consists of: - Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711420 (Black) or # TH711400 (Silver) - Evo Clamp Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH710501 -...

  • Cargo Box for 3 Snowboards for a 2016 Subaru Impreza Hatchback
    If your 2016 Subaru Impreza hatchback came with the factory roof rack including the crossbars that run side to side then I recommend the Thule Force XT Sport # TH6356B. This box will hold up to 3 to 4 snowboards up to 175cm long. If your Impreza does not have the factory crossbars or the factory side rails then you would need to add a roof rack. For a model without any sort of rail or bar on the roof you would use the 47 inch SquareBars, part # TH712200, along with the Evo clamp feet,...
