Our take on the Thule 445 Rack System

by Ralph Graves

Thule rack systems consist of a set of load bars — which supports your accessories and carriers — held by a set of foot packs attached to your vehicle by a fit kit. All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.

Protect your investment. Designed for select Ford F-150 trucks, the Thule 445 complete rack system includes 4 lockable stamped steel feet, 2 load bars, hardware, and 4 load bar endcaps. You can lock the steel feet in place with an included key for added security.
