Thule ProBars package - 754, 390, 1061

RRP: £282.00
Code: TU_1061_754_390

Very strong, smart aluminium bars incorporating a standard T-track slot in the top of each bar. They are often used by people who want a bar that is longer than standard, or by people who use the same vehicle for work and leisure and may therefore make use of e.g. the excellent folding load stops that fit into the rear slot.

Note: the only Yakima accessories that can be fitted to Thule ProBars are the ones with T-track adapters.

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 ProBars 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 this is the load limit for the whole system. Many vehicles have a lower roof-loading limit than this, so it is always important to check your vehicle handbook, and to think about the weight of the roof bars - approximately 7kg for this whole 2 bar system - the weight of what you fix to them (e.g. bike carriers or a roof box) and the weight of what you are carrying.

ProBars: ProBars are 50mm wide by 50mm high - 47mm before the rubber strip is pushed into the top channel.

Thule ProBars are available in the following lengths, available via Search:

  • TU390 = 120cm
  • TU391 = 135cm
  • TU392 = 150cm
  • TU393 = 173cm
  • TU394 = 200cm
  • TU395 = 220cm

People may choose to have longer bars because the standard bars don't quite give them the space they want, perhaps for example for carrying two kayaks and a narrow roof box.

The reason for this flexibility is that the feet can attach to the underside of the bar at any point – unlike Thule’s SteelBars and WingBars where the fixing positions are limited by the length of the slots in the base of the bars. If you go for longer bars you must be sure that the bar or load does not stick out any further than the vehicle bodywork at its widest point, excluding the wing mirrors.

Professional bars have a rounded leading edge but, uniquely, have a T-track slot set into their trailing edge, allowing for a range of innovative commercial load carrying accessories. Of these, the 17cm high folding load stops TU315 are perhaps the cleverest. These fit into this rear slot, slide easily when clicked to 45°, but are locked solid when vertical or horizontal.

Adapter Kit: The Adapter Kit contains the essential components required to fix the roof bars to the vehicle, and contains 4 rubber pads and 4 metal clamps (coated in Pebax, a special hard rubber solution). It will 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.

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