Thule Traverse feet are one part of a car roof rack. They allow you to mount a roof rack on cars without factory bars or rails. Combine the 4 feet with a Thule fit kit and cross bars to make a very strong rack for carrying luggage and sporting gear. The Traverse rack will clip around your car's door jamb without drilling, scratching, or damaging your car. It's very easy to install and has built-in safety features that indicate when the rack is properly attached. Traverse's sleek design has fewer parts and takes half the time to install compared to competitor's racks. Thule locks can be inserted in each foot for extra security (sold separately). Traverse Foot Pack is a set of 4 feet. Backed by Thule's Lifetime Warranty. Manufacturer's part number: 480
