Strut on Thule Atlantis 1600XT popped off. How do I re-attach it?

Put your carrier on a pair of saw horses and clamp down firmly then open the lid as it now stable and clamp your strut with a wide jaw wood clamp. Apply just enough pressut to start the ball into the socket and finish with your hands. Steve Parks

Hinge Replacement, Thule Thule Atlantis 688T 2100 Cargo Cariier

Hi Erroll,

What I believe you're referring to is the 'locking hook' -- the piece attached to the lid that slides into the lock mounted on the bottom segment of the cargo box. While it acts like a hinge in respect of the closed side of the Thule, what the mfg refers to as the hinge (or also referred to as a strut) is the spring mechanism at the front and back used to hold the lid up.

You can acquire this locking hooks online - attached a link for your convenience.

Good luck.

Wind blew the top lid of my thule off the hinges how can I fix this problem

I have a Thule Atlantis 688T 2100 with one broken henge. What they sell online and call a hinge is not a hinge but the spring arm that holds the top open. I contacted Thule twice with no answer and on the third try Thule sent an email saying they won't sell replacement hinges and would only fix it if it were on waranty which it is not. If anyone has a solution please let me know. Now you know about Thule customer support. If you buy a Thule product, good luck. You'll need it.

I want to install the Thule ProRide 591 on the left hand side of the car, and the fitting instructions appear to recommend reversing the position of the clamp arm so that the torsion dial is facing outward...

That is a strange recommendation I have not seen before. Your best bet is too contact Thule Directly, as any recommendation could do damage to your car. They have an excellent customer service department that will be happy to put you in touch with a tech.

Where do I find a roof rack to fit my 1995 Nissan Pathfinder? There are no roll bars for attachments. Is there a good universal roof rack that is sturdy and can be attached? Price is not an issue. Thanks

buy a clamp on type rack,available from any accesory store.(when asked what the bars on the roof were for, a lady said" it stops the paint from getting scratched when you turn the car over"... over heard in a bmw showroom)true......

How to change locks?

Just replaced the locks on an Atlantis 200 which should be the same.
Pop off the 3 rubber caps around the lock and drill out the rivets.
Inside the box pull the plastic unit away from you (bending the aluminium strip slightly but this is fine) gaining access to 2 screws. Unscrew these (I used a small ratchet with a pozi bit rather than a screwdriver) and remove the plastic unit.
You'll have to take out the lock cartridge next. Theres various wedges in the plastic which you should try to hold open then a flat screwdriver near the cog should lever the whole thing out.
To get the barrel lock out of it's cartridge you'll have to push the tumblers in from the back with a very small screwdriver and gradually work it out. (the one I did had a snapped key so I'm assuming this part is easier if you are just changing locks for keyed alike purposes)
Fitting the new lock in to it's cartridge should be easy enough. When you reinsert the cartridge in to the housing make sure that the sliding bolt (that your key turns) is fully in the open position, otherwse your key won't do a thing.
Screw the housing back on and re-rivet the points you drilled.

The catch/lock on the thule roof box broke - need a repair / replacement


Any Thule dealer should be able to sort this one out for you.

Have a look through Thule's website to find the model and possibly you could get it online if it's sold as a user changeable accessory..
