Overview: The Thule 688-Atlantis Cargo Carrier mounts to most factory installed and aftermarket vehicle roof racks.

Fit: The Cargo Carrier requires an aftermarket or factory installed roof-mount rack to mount to the roof of your vehicle. This box may cause interference with some station wagons and hatch backs.

Make sure that loads are evenly distributed inside the roof box. Do not exceed the maximum permitted load of 110 lbs for the box or the maximum permitted load for the roof as recommended by your vehicle manufacturer, as well of the maximum load of the roof-rack.

Construction: The Cargo Carrier is made of vacuum molded ABS high grade impact and scratch resistant material, while its pre-installed hardware is zinc-iron plated steel with nylon straps and buckles.

QuickGrip Mounting Hardware: The Cargo Carrier features pre-installed QuickGrip mounting hardware for easy on/off attachment to roof racks (no tools required).

Dual Side Opening System: This box is designed with a patented dual side opening system, allowing you to open the box from either side, providing easy access to each pair of quick connects during installation and removal. Thanks to its dual-side opening feature, you can access your travel gear from either side of the Cargo Carrier. The box should only be opened one side at a time. The locks works the same way from either side of the box.

NO-GO Central Locking, One Key System: The carrier is easy to open and close thanks to Thule's NO-GO Central Locking, One Key System. Insert the key and turn clockwise to the unlocked position. The key an only be removed when the box lid is closed and locked. To close, press down on the lid at the front and rear of the box. Turn the key counter-clockwise to lock and then remove key.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is the second Thule cargo box I have owned and boy have they come a long way since I bought the first one 12 years ago. The Atlantis is so light and versatile compared to the old ones. Can't believe I waited this long!!
Clam-shell from either side is amazingly convenient The quick-grip connectors could not be any easier to attach to the vehicle. Sleekness will not significantly drop mileage
Sleekness will sacrifice some larger items from fitting in it. I will be interested to see if it can hold the weight it is rated for because it is soooo light weight.
