Customer Reviews

Amazing Product, Horrid DocumentationFit perfectly on my insight. However, insure the rubber foot pads are installed properly. Read below for detailed explanation.IMPORTANT:The directions say nothing about this, so unless you pay close attention on installation you will overlook this small but critical step. When you look at the foot pads, you'll notice the foot pads have differing edges to them; one side will be thicker and one side will be thinner. Insure the thicker side is installed on the downward slope of the roof of your car and the thinner edge is on the upward slope (The edges should make up the difference in the rooftop curvature). This insures maximum contact of rubber to the car for the proper secure fit. If you put them on backwards, like I did the first time, you can just remove the pads and switch them with the adjacent one on the same single rail system. Again, if they aren't fitting to the contours of the rooftop and leaving large gaps, you properly installed them backwards/wrong. 4Excellent fit kit; horrible installation instructionsI needed this fit kit to install our Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack. Our vehicle has flushed rails and this kit is needed to fit those rails. The written instructions are a bit of a joke as they simply provide you with drawings similar to what you would find for an Ikea furniture installation. Please note that the fit kit likely comes semi pre-assembled with the front pieces already attached. However, you will also need the back piece interlocked into the tabs of the front piece to ensure that the kit installs securely underneath the flush rails. Once you interlock the back piece into the front tabs, it installs quickly and securely to the vehicle. All-in-all, installation should take about 5 minutes for all four ends of the roof rack. The fit kit contains all the pieces (4) to install 2 Aeroblade cross pieces on the top of the vehicle. This is a very good fit kit. It is rubber coated so it does not scratch the vehicle. The Thule rooftop carrier is securely attached to the roof rack once these are installed. I'm very happy with this purchase. 5Horrible to installThis is a copy of the review I posted for the Thule 460 foot pack.As an update, about a month later, and after sending a copy of my review directly to Thule, I have not received any sort of reply from Thule. Something tells me they don't really care.Horrible to installMarch 12, 2019This review is about the combination of the Thule 460 foot pack and the 3160 fit kit on a 2016 Mazda CX-9 using the Mazda factory installed rails and the square bar option. While the equipment itself looks like it will be solid once you get it on, installing this set of foot packs and fit kit is a nightmare, thus the one-star rating.I am a fairly smart and handy person, but I spent over 8 hours trying to get this setup installed. There are many problems with the installation process. First, the directions are horrible. They are all indecipherable pictures with no text and no hints or tips as to orientation of the parts, etc. Second, the allen wrench tool they provide to bolt the foot packs onto the car rails is useless. It is too long on both the short and long ends. The short end which goes into the bolt head is too long to fit into the curvature of the roofline, which is sloping toward the sides of the car roof and meets the roof rails in a "V". It is worse on the back feet than the front because the slope is more severe by the rear mounting points. I wound up cutting a same-sized Allen wrench to where the short side was about 3/4" and the long side was about 3". This helped and finally allowed me to complete my installation but it is ridiculous that that's the best tool that Thule could provide.Third and worst of all, to mount this setup, the mounting holes that accept the mounting bolts face toward the center of the car. This means that you have to get on a ladder so you can somehow look back toward yourself in order to see the mounting holes. Complicating things further, the foot packs themselves obscure your view of the mounting holes so that you are trying to catch a thread of your 8 mounting bolts virtually BLIND, while using a tool that will not fit in the space. This took over 8 hours of time and frustration - an average of over one hour per bolt to finally catch a bolt thread so that I could tighten them down and secure the foot to the rail. I thought it would get easier the farther I got, having started with the front ones, but it only got worse when trying to do the more cramped back ones. I would have stopped and returned this setup after installing the first one if I didn't realize that it would be as difficult to disassemble as it was to assemble.So, I would NOT recommend trying to install this yourself. I think even for the pros it would be very difficult. I didn't check how much someplace like Rack and Road would charge to install -- I would guess +/- $100.Overall, I'm not sure this whole setup is worth the hassle. Another factor is that the crossbars for this car are only about 30" apart, which doesn't give you a very stable rack for larger items.I believe this a very poorly designed setup at least as far as installation is concerned. I realize that Thule has to deal with the setup that Mazda gives them and adapt their product to the constraints that Mazda gives them, but Jeez, it seems like they should have been able to do better than this. This is a horror show.As an aside, also having to do with Thule, I decided to take my old Thule square bars off another vehicle and put them on this new one. However, they had been on for about 35 years and I had lost the key to the locks. I was able to pick 2 of them to get them off, but it was taking too much time so I decided to call Thule to ask if they had a key that I could buy. I gave them the lock number stamped on the cylinder and the customer support woman said that these couldn't be Thule locks because their lock numbers only go from 0 to 200. There is no question that these were Thule locks, but maybe they were just too old for this person to be familiar with. She kept insisting and I finally gave up and went to a local locksmith. While I waited for them to make a key, I was able to pick the other 2 locks and therefore save myself about $75.So I'm not happy with Thule. I think they put out a product that is very difficult to install and they offered very little assistance in the way of instructions, tools, or support. Again, I would return this product if it wasn't going to be as difficult to uninstall as it was to install. Maybe other styles (like the Aero) are easier to install. All I know is this one is a bear.Thule needs to create better directions, this time with words. And an installation video. And better tools. The best install video I found was done by a woman working for a reseller who was very cheery about how you just "start the bolts with your fingers and then use the magic allen wrench to finish tightening them down". I'm not believing this. Her smaller hands MAY have allowed her to start those bolts more easily, but my guess is, because of the obvious editing of the video, she probably spent about as much time as I did trying to get those bolts in. And I know she didn't have an allen wrench that Thule supplied that allowed her to finish tightening them down. Theirs simply doesn't fit. My solution (cutting a shorter allen wrench) worked, but it still was FAR from easy.So good luck. I hope other people have had better luck than I did. If you did, I'd be curious about how you did it. 1KIT3130 for Tesla Model SI understand that 3130 only fits years 2012 to early 2015. It comes with 4 studs for the panaromic roof slots, 4 installation plates (which is bolted to 7603B and 7604B by using the bolts coming from the bars not from the kit), 4 rubber feet. It did the job, however I give 4 stars because there are gaps between the rubbers provided and Thule Aeroblade Edge bars. Such a kit customized for a specific car should not have such gaps. 4Very well designed and constructed rackThis review is for 3 parts, the 47"Aeroblade, the 480R foot packs, and the Kit1064 fit kit.I have an old Yakima Rack that I used for snowboarding. It spent a couple years in attics, and to keep from loosing the foot pads, I had duct taped them to the Q towers. I don't foresee the need for tape with Thule's system. The design and construction of each of the above mentioned pieces is every bit as good as it looks in the pictures. I was very impressed. I don't think there were instructions included with the blades, or with the 1064 Fit kit, but they were included with the 480R traverse foot packs. For the most painless installation instructions, go to Thule's site, click on fit guide, and input your vehicle data, select your rack, then download the PDF installation instructions. There are 3 dimensions you'll need to install these rack;1. the distance between your foot packs on the blades2. the distance between your front foot pack and windshield3. the distance between the front and rear bladesOnce you have those 3 numbers (that are vehicle make and model specific) search youtube for "How to Install Thule 480 Traverse Roof Rack Presented by Rack Outfitters". This 5min professionally made video has no talking. It just shows a guy installing the rack with some text where needed. Rack Outfitters really made this install idiot proof with this video.As highly as I think of the Thule system, I am returning mine. It does not allow me to drive out of my garage with my kayak on the rack on my Tacoma. I don't think this rack sits too tall, and I don't consider my kayak excessively tall (its a WS Tarpon120). I don't think my Tacoma with 31" tires is too tall. I fault the architecture of my home. What was sold to us as a "2 car attached garage" could be more accurately described as a 1.5 car garage. Or 1 car with room to walk around it. I'd really like to have a talk with whoever in modern home building decided to designate 7' as an adequate height for a garage door. Of the 4 trucks I've owned while living in this house, only 2 have fit in my garage. For me to be able to drive out of my garage, with the kayak on the roof, it has to sit flush (or very nearly) with the top of the cab. It looks like the only kit that will allow this out of the box is the Thule Xporter 500. At $584 on amazon compared to the $372 I paid for this setup, it's a quite a price increase, but based on my opinion of this system, I'm sure it will be equally engineered. That extra $200 will save me 5-10mins each time I need to load my kayak. If ease of loading the kayak on the truck gets me on the water more, then over time, it will be worth it. 5Thule 3166 Podium Fit KitFirst I checked that the Fit Kit holes lined up with the factory holes on my 2017 Honda CR-V roof rails. They were perfect. Then I sat at my kitchen table and test fit all the parts from the Fit Kit and Podium Foot Pack together first, to make sure I understood how they went together before putting anything on my car. While fitting the plastic plug and the plastic cover (with Thule printed on it) I could see that the small "bump" on the plug must face down when you push it in, so it snaps into place. Then when you turn the plug clockwise, it snaps again into place and the inside tip of the plug hooks into a notch on the Foot. Yeah I think Thule is overpriced but over the years their stuff has held up. Its also nice that I've been able to use the square load bars I bought back in 1982 for a Mazda GLC Sport, with five other vehicles since then just buying the appropriate Fit Kit and/or Foot Pack. 5Thule is worth the price!!!The price for a Thule setup is quite the pill to swallow when searching for roof racks. I tried out a few other brands that were significantly cheaper, and they were terrible!!!! Thule is worth every cent.Our rack is installed on a 2016 Nissan Versa Note Hatchback. We are driving from Columbus, OH to Seattle, WA and after 1200 miles it has not budged.The only critique that I have is the installation dimensions. I had to change X and Y distance slightly for a more secure fit. The W and Z dimensions I did not change. 5Why do these cost as much as they do? 4 pieces of rubber and 4 clampsWhy do these cost as much as they do? They do the job but overpriced. 4Perfect fit on flush mount rails.The Thule crossbars and podium foot kit fit perfectly and hold tightly to the flush mount rails. As always the Thule products are well made and look good. My last set of Thule crossbars were moved to my wife's new car and still look good and as solid as ever after 11 years in use. 5Keeps shipping the wrong item!Wouldn't recommend ordering this item right now (3/29/18) as the model# inventory mappings are incorrect. I've ordered and had to return the wrong item 3 times now. Very frustrating, and now we've got to make the road trip without the cargo carrier that we need. 1
