Rack is great, danger in inconsistent measuring points.

By 

from Boston, MA

Comments about Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack 480R:

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.

    the catalogue was not so straight forward and we needed another part when we tried to install so had to order that. Customer service was excellent
