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.

Solid rack...instructions leave much to be desired.


Awesome rack! I HIGHLY recommend you watch the Thule 480R installation video on youtube before and during your installation.
