Poor function and customer service


The idea of the low profile box with plenty of length to store ski gear is excellent in theory but does not perform in practice. Because of the length of the box it is extremely difficult to open. The lid of the box is not rigid and the handle to open it is located in a position where the front of the box lid always gets caught on the lower portion of the box. It is very difficult to get the lid clear and open especially in the cold/snow. The lock on the box also leaves a lot to be desired. The box is designed to be used for snow sports but the locks do not work well in the snow/cold environments. Every time I have used the box after a day on the mountain the locks are completely frozen. I have the heat the lock with a warmer to loosen it up enough to get the key in the lock and turn it. A very frustrating experience to have after a long day outside. The last issue isn't with the box but with customer service. This box came with a large gouge in the side. I called customer service and they told me I need to fill out a damage warranty form online. Customer service took a full week to reply and told me that it is not their problem after the product is delivered. This was my first time purchasing a Thule product and I would not recommend it to anyone in the market due to both the quality of the product and the customer service.

Looks great, works great, but makes so much noise.


Overall, this is a very nice looking box. There is a ton of space and it's very easy to open and close. However, I have had 3 different boxes now (2 of which were Thule) and I have never experienced such bad rattling.

I would definitely buy a Thule product again.


Easy to mount to the rails and easy operation. Looks amazing on the car
