Thule roof bars package - 757, 761


The components needed to attach two Thule bars to your vehicle are shown below. You need to order the Foot Pack and a set of Bars - either the steel "Bars" (32mm x 22mm, see top right picture, top bar), or the oval shaped aluminium "Aerobars" (see other pictures).

Aerobars allow you to use the full length of your roof bars. Accessories fit into the slot in the top of each bar - their fittings will not clash with the Foot Pack as can happen with steel bars where the fittings wrap around the bar. All boxes may be fitted to them, but please note that some bike carriers and various watersports and ski accessories won't fit. If you want Aerobars, untick the steel Bars and tick Aerobars.

The recommended roof bar length for your car is shown below, without too much bar sticking out beyond the clamps. The problem is that customers often want to use longer bars, e.g. because they want to carry a box and bike carriers on the roof, and the recommended bars are not long enough. If you want to know a lot of nerdy stuff about bars for vehicles with roof rails, please click here. Otherwise, please order below as normal.

We have a superb lock barrel matching service that even covers any Thule products you already have. We'll tell you how many lock barrels you need for your new system, ask you to tell us how many Thule lock barrels you already have, and send you as many identically numbered lock barrels as you need. When you send back all your differently numbered lock barrels and keys we'll buy these back from you, at the same price. When the process is complete then all it will have cost you is the return postage!

If you order more than one Thule product we'll include this lock barrel matching service in the shopping basket, but feel free to delete it if you don't need this, or you're not sure about it - you can of course take advantage of it later on if you're one of our customers.

As an arm twister, a thank you for buying from us, and to show off these incredibly useful products, we'll include one free Fasty HANDY with every set of bars you buy, i.e. the Foot Pack, Bars, Adapter Kit, as appropriate, while stocks last - see pop up link for details.

The aim of this note is to persuade you that kayaks should always be tied to the carrying vehicle at both bow and stern.

Untied kayaks have, in our experience, the greatest potential for a roof bar or kayak carrier failure. The massive forces that untied kayaks can generate have even been known to snap roof bar fixing bolts with the result that a complete assembly of roof bars and kayaks has ended up on the road. We know that this has happened with almost every brand of roof bar, and regardless of whether the kayaks are on a special carrier or just strapped to the bars.

You need to fix bow and stern lines, probably using the front and rear screw-in towing eyes to get strong and accessible fixing points on the vehicle. Kayak shops should be able to provide suitable 'paracord' for this purpose. It is cheap and readily available online. Alternatively, Thule makes the QuickDraw 838 which we have listed together with every kayak carrier we sell.

Please note that kayaks should be strapped to the roof bars, or to kayak carriers, using straps that are suitable for the purpose, e.g. 25mm polypropylene straps with strong buckles. Bungee cords must never be used.

Please also note that all roof bar instructions point out the dangers of carrying unsecured long items, as of course do all kayak carrier instructions.

If you tie down your kayaks you almost certainly won't experience a product failure. If you don't you may or may not get away with it. If there is a disaster and the kayaks end up on the road, separated from the vehicle, then you were not using tie downs and you have subjected the roof bars to forces for which they were not designed. The costs of sorting this out are yours, not ours, and you may also have difficulties with your insurers.

We're sorry to be so firm about this, but "things coming off the tops of cars" is the stuff of nightmares, and we want to do all we can to prevent accidents of this sort from happening.

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our two to three day service is 5.50 (9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is 8.50 (12.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged 3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), 4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or 5.95 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.

There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.

We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.

No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. All courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

You can see to fit the 757 roof rail clamps in the video below.

The video shows them used with aero bars. They also work with steel bars, WingBars, SlideBars and Professional bars.
