Replacement Base for Thule TracRac Ladder Rack in Black  


I need a bracket. I found the right one in silver, but I need a black one. Here is the silver version: Replacement Modular Base for TracRac Fixed Mount Ladder Rack - Left Front/Right Rear - Qty 1 Item # TAPT-27001 All I have for photos is the storm damage from the storm two weeks ago. How is this relevant to my TracRac? Well, the wires came down in a bunch of places, and I had to drive under them to go get gas for the generators. The primary was down, and some Heros moved the 4,800 volt wires without becoming flaming marshmallows, so I drove under the wires. This worked fine, until a service wire and cable caught my rack and broke the bracket. I went and bought the gas anyway. I brought the gas home, and we cooked dinner on the electric stove. That night, we had a rough one. Mocha the cat, 17 years old in August, had insomnia. We tried everything to get her to lay her little head down and go to sleep. If I put her in an office chair and rub her belly, she will hang her head over the edge for a whole then go to sleep. Nope. I ended up going out and starting the generator, and microwaving a can of cat food for her. Kids said I was stupid, Dad! Dont microwave a metal can! Cooks better in the can, cat ate some shredded turkey byproducts, and settled down to sleep at about 2am. The next day I was up early, couldnt sleep, fretting about my broken Tracrac. I went out and started the generator, and made some coffee. The stove barley heated the water and the lights kept blinking. Holy Catfish in a coffin, the generator is now failing! I just sat there and drank the coffee by the wood stove until the sun came up. I went out to see how bad the generator was. It wasnt plugged in all the way! Back in business, we could run the pump and water heater. Cat slept late that morning, we all had to tip toe around the house. Power was out for four more days, but there might be a character limit in this box. Anyway, I would order a rack part, if I had the number for a black one.

We have just what you need with the part # TAPT-27001-02 which is the black version of the # TAPT-27001! I enjoyed reading your story and I'm glad it all worked out! I think I might start saying "holy catfish in a coffin" now too.
