Thule Short Roof Adapter - for Traverse Racks
Buy Now: Short Roof Adapter - Thule Traverse
The Short Roof Adapter creates more distance between your rack cross bars, allowing you to carry larger loads and accessories. Without it, your bars may only be about 12 inches apart (on small 2-door cars). This photo shows a typical Thule Traverse roof rack with the Short Roof Adapter installed. The darker areas show how the adapter ties into the rack system: 2 bracing bars connect the front and rear cross bars, spreading them further apart. Mounts in the center of the braces provide an anchor point for the 2 rear fit kit clips (which clip around the door frame). The rear Traverse feet now just rest on the car roof (with rubber pads). The Short Roof Adapter enlongates the rack size while stabilizing and strengthening it.
