Thule SlideBars package - 754, 892, 1043

£334.50
RRP: £392.00
Code: TU754_892_1043

A top quality 2 bar modular system - the Foot Pack, aluminium SlideBars and Adapter Kit are shown below, and locks are included.

SlideBars make it safer and easier to load e.g. bikes or kayaks onto tall vehicles, because they slide out 60cm on either side. SlideBars include a standard T-track slot in the top of each bar.


This is a modular system, which means that you may be able to use some of these components on a different vehicle or (for example) change these aluminium SlideBars for a set of WingBars. The Foot Pack is clamped onto the roof with a vehicle-specific Adapter Kit.

Foot Pack: The Thule 754 Foot Pack is designed for use on vehicles that do not have any obvious roof fixings. These roof bars clamp around the bodywork, where available using any locating holes or lugs behind the door seals. This Foot Pack has a maximum load limit of 75kg, so 75kg is the loading limit for the whole system, even though the SlideBars have a loading limit of 90kg. Many vehicles have a lower roof-loading limit than this, so it's always important to check your vehicle handbook, and to think about the weight of the roof bars - 12kg to 14kg for this whole 2 bar system, depending on bar length - the weight of what you fix to them (e.g. bike carriers or kayaks) and the weight of what you are carrying.

SlideBars: SlideBars include a standard T-track slot in the top of each bar, which must be used otherwise of course the bar cannot slide and the benefit of the whole system is lost! Please also note that many Yakima accessories do not have T-track fixing options so, especially for boat carriers, it makes sense to choose a Thule system if using SlideBars.

Other really good features:

  • Once unlocked, the bars can be released and slid out single-handed, 60cm on either side of the vehicle, leaving your other hand to grip the vehicle; the rubberised grip panels make this easy, even in the wet
  • the bars click back into their closed position with a reassuring 'snap-lock' clunk; a red indicator disappears when they are properly closed

Thule's SlideBars won a Red Dot product design award in 2011.

An example of how we used SlideBars and relatively simple Thule accessories to carry 4 kayaks on a van is shown in the product popup - click on the SlideBar in the product list below.

Adapter Kit: The Adapter Kit contains the essential components required to fix the roof bars to the vehicle. It may well be specific to this vehicle; you can see how it fits by looking at the Fitting instructions tab. Note that the picture just shows a typical Adapter Kit, to give you an idea of what to expect

Locks: One Key System locks are included. We have a free lock matching scheme for all your Thule gear which, as a customer, you may continue to use any time you want. This means that you can use the same key for most of your Thule products. In practice, only having one key for all roof mounted bike carriers is the most useful part of a 'one key system', a system which is offered by all the major brands we sell.

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

Always tie down 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. Alternatively, we have sets of straps available that are perfect for the job and are really easy to use. Yakima make some excellent Bow/Stern tie down straps and 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 properly 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.

Payment options:

We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".
