Rated 5 out of 5áby Georgejr Thule excellence
I bought the Thule #450 foot mounts for my new van because the side rails are wider than those on my previous van. They were installed as soon as I received them, and are ready to carry my kayaks safely and securely for years to come. With Thule, and
LLBean, there is nothing to worry about.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ccsubaru Thule 450 Crossraod railing feet
These are well engineered and easy to attach to the cars railing. However, they do not fit the more aero dynamic cross bars which I think would be far less noisy than the rectangular bars designed for these feet. I do not know if there are any load differences between the 2 bars but quieter is better, for me at least. 1" foam pipe insulation cut down the noise considerably but it was still too loud. Thule also makes a wind screen that is supposed to ease the noise but that is just more expense. I already have enough in this thing.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ScouterinWY Excellent Product
I replaced the foot-pack for my Thule roofrack last spring when I switched from an Exploder to a Highlander. These are excellent - easy to put on, take off, and secure. Bought the lock pack and used the old bars. The locks just pop in & done. Perfect! Hauls my Old Town canoe beautifully, and probably fit a range of other vehicles if needed.
The adjusting hex bolt uses an allen wrench to tighten/loosen, but it points out sideways so I can use my cordless drill to spin it down or remove it. And the allen wrenches are part of the end caps so always available. Nice!

Rated 5 out of 5áby SRPhotography Easy to install
Finally purchased the Thule system for our minivan. Well worth the purchase, especially with free shipping and points from the LLBean Visa. Extremely easy to install correctly on the first try. The person we spoke to on the phone was knowledgeable and recommended the appropriate sytem for our vehicle.
