Thule Slide Bars

The innovative Thule SlideBars makes loading your roof rack easy. The bars slide out on either side of the vehicle by 60cm, this protects your car from scratches from clothing/belts, provides a much safer lift for your back and allows you to access the entire roof rack. SlideBars are especially good for loading roof bars on taller vehicles such as 4x4s and people carriers.

Thule Slide Bars are a popular solution for assisting in the loading of canoes and kayaks. Many of the Thule Kayak Carriers are compatible with the Slide Bars with a T Track adapter kit. Read our review on our group website
