Thule 480R Rapid Traverse Foot Pack
Rapid Traverse foot pack for rack systems 4 pack
Our take on the Thule 480R Rapid Traverse Foot Pack by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Thule rack systems consist of a set of load bars which support your accessories and carriers held by a set of foot packs that are attached to your vehicle by a fit kit. All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.
Thule designed the 480R Rapid Traverse Foot Pack for use with their top-of-the-line Rapid Aero Load Bars (available separately) on cars without rain gutters or factory racks. Galvanized stamped steel construction resists corrosion, while the wide foot design offers excellent stability.
Note: Thule includes matching load bar end caps in this package.
Sturdy and easy to install, very satisfied!
