Replacement Thule AcuTight Cradle for Thule Roof Mounted Cargo Boxes - TH8523387001

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (300 Customer Reviews)

Replaces 1 AcuTight cradle for your Thule roof-mounted cargo box.


I ordered the cradles to replace the older original cradles that are larger and longer. Mine kept popping off and based upon the other reviews, they appeared to be the correct replacement. (Picture 1) The older cradle is on the left and the new replacement on the right. The newer cradles are slimmer and smaller - but fit just fine. Only extra thing I did was to add a washer (2nd picture) to help keep the screw in place and prevent the cradle from popping off like the old ones used to.


Purchasing and shipping was great. The only issue is that this cradle is not an accurate replacement for the Thule Pulse cradles. The thicker ends are not as deep but it works fine for tightening the clamps to the box’s bottom.


Product fits exactly and works as necessary. The curve is slightly less so it could technically slide easier especially on narrow crossbars. While I doubt this would be a problem, I will attach a picture...the original is on the right.


No comments on the part itself, but I'm sure it will be fine. No issues with eTrailer as they always provide fast shipping. One note of caution that wasn't completely obvious to me - if you have an older Ascent box, the screws that hold in the original cradle do not have a built in washer and the hole in the replacement cradles is larger in diameter, so either order new screws or buy some washers. I was under the impression the old screws would work and since I still had them, I didn't order new ones. In my opinion, these shouldn't be sold separately. See my picture with the old screw resting on top of the new cradle for a sense of what I mean.


The first shipment was lost in transit. E-Trailer responded immediately and shipped the order again. I was happy to receive it a couple days later.


First time ordering from this company and I am thoroughly impressed with their selection of parts, ease of ordering, pricing, and quick shipping. Instead of being forced to buy the whole grip assembly for my cargo carrier, I was able to purchase only the part needed for the assembly. It came sealed in a plastic bag and of excellent quality. Will purchase from them again should I need anything else.


Perfectly replaces my OEM Thule box cradle. Have owned now for a year and have used the box for multiple trips with no issues.


These installed easily and did the job. No issues once the carrier was mounted to the car.
The only issue I had was that they seemed to be able to pop off easily while mounting the rack to the car if the clamp was twisted.


I ordered the product for my cargo box and it was supposed to arrive on 2/22/2022, was going on a ski trip on the 23rd. Did not show up until 2/26/2022. Customer service was poor at best, I was told it’s out of their hands until I receive it. It sat idle for 5-6 days before it moved! Luckily I sourced 4 of them from a local shop for 9.50 for all 4 pieces. These guys are charging 11.00 plus, then when I went back to website they were asking 12.35 each! These guys are a ripoff and I will never ever use them again!

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

I ordered a replacement part for a Thule cargo box, and was very pleased with the entire experience with etrailer! I found them via an online search as one of the few places carrying the part. Confirmed that it was the right part via their website. Ordering the part was easy. They have excellent email communication to alert me when the part was shipped and received. Shipping was great (even during pandemic). The whole process was seamless. I am a happy customer!


The cradle arrived much earlier than expected and it worked perfectly on our Thule 635B Sonic XL cargo box. Thanks!


Glad to have these replacement parts to the latches don't roll around within the cargo box.


Just what I needed. Had to replace an old cradle and it fits perfectly.


Part fit perfectly, and arrived before promised date. Excellant service.


This is a perfect replacement for the OEM part

Great products and experience!


Great replacements for my cargo box that is 13 years old. Still going strong!

Works as good as original. Easy install.


product little different than orginial from Thule , not as deep of mounting service for roof rack as mentioned in previous review / Otherwise great customer service and prompt shipping and delivery


It's just a tad different from the Thule branded one, but works just fine. Customer Service is honest to their every word. Much appreciated!

This is a Thule brand. etrailer puts their stickers on to brand that it is our photos we took.
