Replacement Thule AcuTight Cradles For Thule Roof Mounted Cargo Boxes

Question:

I have an old Thule Atlantis Box that I purchased back when they first came out with these smooth surface roof top boxes. I purchased from you the feet and adapters for my Wingbars that I purchased from another vendor. I was never able to source everything from one vendor given the difficulties around COVID with supply chain issues. I have the bars and feet mounted on our 2018 Honda Accord. My question is about an adapter for the Atlantis Box that I own so that the adjustable claw clamps in that box will grab the bars evenly. It seems like the load centering cradle that rides on top of the Wingbar Evo load bar, because of the tapered edge of the bar - doesnt sit evenly on the bar so the clamps dont grab the load bar evenly as I tighten them down. It would seam that a different load centering cradle that matched the contour of the load bar would alleviate the problem. Wondering if you have any suggestions. Ive found a few things on Thingiverse to 3D print that could be a solution - but wondered if you had something I could buy off the shelf that would work. The solutions on Thingiverse would require some adaptation and or removal of the built in adjustable clamps just to make that work with the box.

You are needing the Thule AcuTight Cradle # TH8523387001. This is designed to fit between the flat bottom of your Thule Atlantis Box and the curve of your Wingbar Evo crossbars. There are notches for the Quick Grip Mount Assembly # TH05738 to secure around the crossbars.
