Don't not buy


Installed on my 2017 explorer only to to find out on the last podium cover would not lock in to place! Spent the extra 60 bucks for locks only to find out they only are basically for decoration as all one would have to do is unscrew the the bolts that attach to the rail to steal the whole roof rack. How does it feel Thule to charge so much for such a horrible product, thanks for wasteing my time. Please don't purchase this product.




Rapid Traverse Foot Pack


The installation is definitely best done with two people and I'm very handy with tools, etc.. You will be best served by watching the online video while installing the foot pack, cross bars, the written instructions are not very well done, but the video is great. After installation it fits well, seems to be rock solid and fits our Thule Rooftop Cargo Carrier very nicely on a 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid.

Rack is great, danger in inconsistent measuring points.


So the bars are great, my issue is with the measurements. So you don't think me a bumbling fool, I'll tell you that I'm an orthopedic surgeon. I'm mechanically minded and competent with my hands. For reasons that are unclear to me the mounting point for the front foot is measured from the moulding of the windshield to the front of the front foot and the mounting point for the rear foot is measured FROM THE CENTER OF ONE BAR TO THE OTHER. This nonsensical, poorly thought out, mounting direction lead me to feel that the rear bar was very close to fitting, so I pulled a little on it, the far side foot came loose from the door frame and the rack came careening into my nose, leading to a bloody mess on the ground nearby. Beware! Otherwise the rack is great.
