Can I Use My Older Thule Square Bars with the # 753-3399?


I have old square Thule bars pre slot and Im looking for the foot pack to work with them and a 2014 Subaru Cross trek. It looks like you foot pack #753-3399 will work. Can you confirm that? Thanks

If you have pre-channel older Thule SquareBars, you can use the Replacement Foot for Thule Crossroad Roof Mounted Railing Foot Pack # 753-3399 on your raised rails of your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek. It is important to note that Thule recommends a crossbar length of 50 inches, so I recommend that you make sure that you have enough crossbar length to cross your roof.

If you want a more economical solution, I recommend the Inno Feet for Square Crossbars - Raised Side Rails # INFR. This is because the Inno Square Crossbars like # INB127 have the same 7/8" tall x 1-1/4" wide dimensions as the Thule bars.

With that being said, there is unfortunately no solution if you have a bare roof. The only other option is to purchase a new crossbar system that includes bottom channels in the SquareBars. I recommend the following:

- Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbars - Steel - 47" # TH712200
- Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars - Fixed Point # TH460R
- Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet- 3068 # THKIT3068
- Thule One-Key Locks # TH450400

With this particular system, you receive 130 pounds of maximum weight capacity. In order to know for sure if your roof can hold this much weight, I recommend that you consult with your vehicle's owner's manual.
