I do have a possible solution for you but there aren't shorter screws made specifically for the Rhino-Rack ski/rod carrier # RR572. The screws are M6 x 40mm which is about 1-1/2 inches long. Thule has a set of M6 x 27mm screws, # 1500052564, which are 1 inch long. But they are not tamper-proof.

Thule also has # 853-5269 which is tamper-proof but is 1-3/16 inches long which is 5/16 inches shorter than the Rhino-Rack ones. You would also need special wrench # 853-5270-02.

Another option is to trim the ones you have using either a manual saw or a rotary tool with a cutting wheel.
