Thule Roof Rack Feet - Flush Rails - TH710601 Review


Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. And today we're taking a look at the Evo Flush Rail feet for your Thule cross bars. So, the feet are going to be an important part of your roof rack system on your vehicle. And it's going to act as the intermediary between your fit kit, which actually attaches to your Flush Rails and the bars themselves. So those two components, the fit kit and the rails are sold separately.

You can find those here at etrailer.com to fit a wide variety of vehicles. The Flush Rails in particular are going to be available on some vehicles, but not on every one. So, the easiest way to figure out if your vehicle has it is to use our fit guide here at etrailer.com, put in your year, make and model of your vehicle, and then go from there. The Flush Rails are going to be those rails that run front to back on your vehicle on either side, but there's no space underneath.So it's going to be flush with the roof of your vehicle. If it has space underneath, that's going to be a Raised Rail.

If there's nothing running front to back, then you have a naked roof. So, if you're unsure of which one you have, that's the way to distinguish between them. So, our Evo feet are going to be an improvement over the older style of Thule feet. If, you're familiar with their roof rack system before, they always had a really nice roof rack system to use. I've used it personally many times, and it was pretty easy to get installed.

Definitely better than a lot of other competitors out there, but now that they've improved it again with making it a lot simpler to get in place. So, instead of having to tighten your bars to the feet and then tighten the fit kit to the feet, you just have to do one round of tightening and that seals everything up together.It brings everything clamped and secure on your roof rack. So, it makes it a lot simpler to get in place. To do that, you'll have your cover going over the foot. Each one is going to have a little pop-out there if you want to add locks, you can, again, those are sold separately, but mine is in the unlocked position.

So I can pop that cover over open. And my fit kit would normally mount on here. It's going to be a little plate and then a little insert to go over this stud. And then I'm going to use the tool that comes with the feet here to tighten that down. Once it's tight, that tool is going to click, letting me know that it's all tightened down, properly and securely. And if I pull on this, you'll see this part at the top is going to move back and down.So, that's what's going to pull against the bottom of our rail and secure it to our foot. At the same time, that's also going to be drawing our clamp up against our Flush Rail. So, it's going to put tension on everything and make sure it's all nice and tight and secure. So, it's a really easy system goes together really well. These are all also a little bit more aerodynamic and sleek than the older style. So, I think this is going to be a great improvement over the older Thule model. Thule always makes really superior products. They have really great testing practices with all of their stuff. So, I really trust their name. A lot of people are very devoted to Thule as a following. So, it definitely has a lot of great naming behind it, or a lot of great history behind it. Again, that tensioning tool, this is going to click whenever you get to that proper tension.So you don't have to worry about over tightening or under tightening. It's all going to be up to spec as soon as you hear that click, you'll just go around to all four feet to do that. And then you're good to go. The nice thing with having a Flush Rail system on your vehicle is that with those Flush Rails, you do have a little adjustability for your feet, so you can adjust them to kind of match with whatever you're using depending on your system. Some of them are going to be a little bit more restricted, just kind of depends on your vehicle again, as I mentioned, and all those instructions will be in the fit kit for you. But if you do have some adjustability for your roof rack, the further forward you can go with those bars, the less noise you're typically going to get out of them, especially if you have one of those quieter bars, like the Aeroblade or the WingBar Evo.So, if you Can't put it towards the front because of your accessory, it's kind of up to you, but you do have a little bit of adjustability there. As far as what these feet will work with, they're going to work with the Thule Aeroblade and the WingBar Evo, as I mentioned, as well as the Square-bar and the ProBar Evo crossbars. So, do you have some options for the different bars to work with these. It's going to be a really nice system again, to make your vehicle able to carry all those bigger bulkier items and get some stuff out of your vehicle and put it up on the roof. That way you have more room for passengers and pets and maybe your smaller cargo as well.The Specs with this, our maximum foot load capacity is going to be 220 pounds. And you want to make sure though that you go off of any stipulation in your owner's manual for your vehicle, and also go by the recommended weight for your bars. And really you're only as strong as the weakest link in any system. So, definitely go off with the lowest number of any of those components. As far as the minimum crossbar spread we can work with, with these, it's going to be 27 and a half inches. These are covered by a limited lifetime warranty from Thule. And that's going to do it for our look at the Evo Flush Rail feet for your Thule crossbars. I hope this video's been helpful in deciding if this is going to be the right kit for you. If not, we do have other options available here at etrailer.com. So definitely check them out. Thanks for watching. And we'll see you next time.
