my rack bars are 2 1/4" wide. Will this mounting hardware allow me to mount my 724 ski racks to them? How wide a bar can they accommodate?


The 753 Hardware will work with bars up to 3 1/2" wide bars.

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.

Thanks, Rack Attack Boston

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.

I have 2011 Subaru Outback but have an older Thule 724 ski rack. Will these clamps allow a fit to the factory Outback bars? Thanks. Chris


Yes, this is what you need for factory crossbars.

Xterra cross bars are very wide and the Thule ski racks that I purchased don't fit. Is this the correct rack?

The (753-3998) will work for your Xterra bars however, you will need longer bolts which are found in the Xadapt 7 kit. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at 303-278-4999.

I just bought the factory bars for my Compass and have the 726 ski rack... Are these the correct mounting brackets I would need to replace the clamp on. If not what do I need?

Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the 753-3998 is the mount you will need to attach the 726 ski carrier to your factory bars.

Thank you,

Rack Attack.
