Hi,

Has anyone attached the Hobie trailer cradles to Thule Aero bars using the T slot? If you have what length of screw bolt do you need? If not available then what is the best way to attach?

Cheers


Silky

Well, I thought about going this route and decided against it.

Personally, I would use a carriage bolt through a set of square bars for this application, or add clamp-on Thule saddles (which I did).

The thin, slide-in T-bolts are made for lighter equipment mounts, like bikes or snowboards. The longer you make these, the less you will be able to trust them.

I get the impression that Rhino Rack's channel system is much more robust and maybe up to the job. Our Aussie friends may be able to comment on this.
