Thule 753-3998 Ski Rack Mounting Hardware Questions
asked on 1/29/2013:
Vehicle: 2009 Audi Q7
The write up says 'older racks'. Can the hardware be used to to replace (broken) backets on a 2012 Thule 92726 Universal Pull Top Ski rack? Thanks
Technically, no. You need the original wing knobs from the "older style" ski racks to get the 753-3998 hardware to work. The current style ski racks like the 92726 Pull Top and 92724/5 Flat Tops use the SpeedLink hardware from Thule. The SpeedLink is not available through our website, as it is considered a spare part. You can inquire with Thule about obtaining a replacement mount. If you have any other questions, feel free to call us at 1-888-399-RACK.
Thanks, TJ @ Rack Attack Boston

I have an old Thule 597/598 ski rack (star wheel insert). Will this kit allow me to connect my ski rack to a 2011 Subaru Factory Installed Bars?
Unfortunatley, no. This hardware set will not work with the old 597 Ski Carrier. It only works on the newer style flat tops by Thule.

Will this adapter still allow the rack to be locked to the racks using the one-key system, does it have a separate lock, or does it not support locking to the rack?
This uses a security torx bit to fasten your ski rack to your roof rack. The lockability of the ski rack remains the same.
Thule is pleased and very excited to recognize Rack Attack as a Thule 5-Star Dealer because we are "going beyond the borders..." and providing consumers the ultimate point of reference for locating product, service, and support.
