Thule XADAPT9 Adapter Kit Reviews
Core rated this item 5 out of 5 on 5/31/2014:
The instructions are quite simple. I believe some people associate step by step instructions with loss of control and it triggers a negative psychological response. If you find yourself becoming angry while reading these instructions you should probably have someone instal it for you. Give in to the instructions and the pain will diminish and the satisfaction of accomplishment will overcome you as it all falls into place. My only critique is that Thule doesn't make a front end adapter for the Prologue for Yakima aero style bars. I'm trying to use Thule but it's painful having to modify adapters..

These work, but the instructions are not good for the Prologue bike tray at least. 1- instructions mention 3 bolts, 2 in the front and 1 in the rear. There is no third bolt to put in the rear - that's okay, but misleading 2- the nuts aren't capable of tightening the prologue down on the bar, the bolts are too long. You have to get some extra washers and use them on top of the provided washer, then it works. This is confirmed with a comment on amazon as well - I'm not the only one. Sellers should revise the instructions or provide guidance.

I believe the poor reviews were for an older or different model. There is no way for this product to rattle if used correctly. As for the directions- There are pictures that clearly show the 3 steps required for the REALLY basic installation. I am actually a bit upset I delayed buying this because of the bad (and incorrect) reviews.
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.
