The Crossroad Railing Pack includes two 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. The Crossroad's adjustment tool is built into the feet, making it easy to adjust and lock down with no external hardware. Editors Note: Call for assistance if you aren't sure about fitting your rack.
I've got these mounted on my car (2006 Toyota Rav4) and have used them on my wife's car as well (2005 Subaru Outback). These are a great option for cars with factory rails on the roof. They're easy to install and seem incredibly secure. I really like the fact that the wrench you need for the installation is built into the rack (it's attached to the inside of the end cap on the footing) - it's really nice to not have to keep track of small parts. Both of our cars came with factory installed cross bars, but the Thule system is way more secure, especially when you have heavier loads on the roof or a large roof box.
ugh. I love my Thule's but I lost the paperwork and can't seem to figure out how to take off the crossroad feet for winter. I don't have a lock on them. I don't want to break them trying. Can someone help?
The outer face (the part with spot for lock and says "Thule") pulls of with a little bit of brute force and ignorance (screwdriver?), then that reveals a built in hex key that should unscrew the rubber strap.
