..... is what we use . I say they are a great product , haven't had "any" problems with it yet (3 yrs. use) , install on and remove off fast and easily ... put up in position , click it's done !!

I'd imagine Thule is an equal , but can't say because of no experience w/them .

For each "bar" you want on top (one or two) , you'll have these parts that combine into one unit that stays together permanently after initial setup/assembly ...

(1) Bar (in length you want) , (2) bar end caps (plastic covers) , two (2) Q-Towers (come with neoprene snap on base) , (2) Q-Clips (designed for your vehical make/modle) , (2) key locks are optional but I say get them , and (2) Load Stops optional but In say get them .

Get a least one Cam Strap (I use Yakima brand) for each Bar setup ... again optional but I say get them (ropes and other Cam Strap brands are option) .

Best advice is to take off and store inside when not uising ... eliminates unnecessary wind noise , and prevents unnecessary weather degradation .
