The base of a Thule rack system.

The Crossroad Railing Pack includes four Crossroad feet to affix your Thule rack system to your cars factory installed side rails. The Crossroad uses a unique flexible clamping strap to fit to almost any side rail.

Sturdy and adjustable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had these footings on my car for about 5 years now and they are holding up great. They are easy to adjust and sturdy. Everything you could ask for in a footing.

Awesome roof rack compatability

    The crossroad railing is a great option and my go to on Subaru's for over 12 years. This will fit any car just about that has the built in railings. Very strong very dependable and exceptionally easy to put on. Only takes about 5 mins to install the entire rack. Love it!

    easy to use!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    these installed easily and not I can use a ski rack with my factory rails!

    Stoked on these feet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are the easiest feet to put on and take off your rack. We had them on our 2009 Outback, and then changed over to our 2012 Rav4 and it was an easy transition. We dread taking them off and putting them on a new car, but it was so fast and simple! They work great with our square load bars by Thule as well.

    Amazing piece of equipment

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This by far is probably the most important piece of equipment that i own. The footpack allows me to mount just about any kind of rack i want onto my Subaru and go use the gear that i have. Fist it is incredibly easy to put on, the bottom strap is essentially a strong bungee cord that holds the footpack into place on the side rails of the car. SO if your car has side rails already installed by the factory this is probably the setup you would want. I'm not a huge fan of rain gutter mounts they also work great too for all the cars that don't have side rails. From here you get the cross bars and mount any rack you think of to your car and go. Love the footpacks.

    Great rack -but....

      I purchased this rack system for my 2010 Ford Edge. The rack is well engineered, sturdy, very adjustable and really easy to install. Thule really did a great job. I only wish Ford had done as well. The feet that hold the factory rails are not substantial enough to carry a reasonable load (a couple of creek boats & gear). They are rolling in & I am going to have to find another solution- Probably some bolt on podiums. Bottom line- check your factory rails before you invest in this product and plan on buying a fairing if you are using square bars.

      Simple to install, love the versatility

        I was a bit skeptical of the "universal" nature of these feet. I just wasn't sure that I wanted a rack with a generic strap for the rails. But I could not be more happy with these feet! They are very simple to install and the strap is legit - looks like it will last a long, long time. I really like that the adjustment tool is built into the foot itself, and I like that I can take this off one car and put it on another, assuming it has rails. This was a great purchase.

        I matched it up with some Rocky Mount Pitchforks just in case I need the trays when going with friends who own Yak racks.

        Will these clamp on to round roof racks?...

        Will these clamp on to round roof racks? I already have the the cross bars, I'm hoping to adapt them to the Congo Cage I'm putting on my JKU.


        This foot pack is meant to mount to your vehicles side rails. If you already have crossbars mounted to your rack then you don't need a foot pack. You can mount racks straight to your existing crossbars---just be sure to check for compatibility.

        how do you remove them once installed and the tool has snapped into the foot?

        The tool can be removed. The lock actually goes into the tool which is the cover for the bolt you adjust. It just pops out. The tool is just an Allen wrench. It is very simple and when you see it in person you will totally get it.

        Do I have to buy two bars separately? I am sorry to say this. But, Thule sells "Complete Crossroads Railing Rack" on its website. The rack on the website seems to include feets, locks, and 50" bars. Do you sell the same item too?
