Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ingenious Idea! We installed the Thule Universal Pull Top carrier on our SUV and - WOW - being able to pull the ski carrier to the side makes loading and unloading skis very easy. We don't have to bring a step stool to reach the last pair of skis! The installation instructions were located on the outside of the box and were a bit weak (pictures only). It didn't take long to figure them out though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thule universal pull top ski carrier - OK Rack fit two snowboards and a set of skis side-by-side. Only issue is when the weather is cold the rack freezes in place and doesn't pull out. Also if you load snowboards or skis with bindings down for better aerodynamics - be carefule when pulling them out. They will catch on the side bars. Overall good rack, but pull out is only beneficial if weather doesn't freeze or bindings are up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This rack is the best! This works great for loading up multiple skis and boards on the way to the mountains. It slides out easily and works flawlessly and will stay shut even if you dont lock the unit. Great buy for large SUV's/luxury SUV's.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Serves purpose, but not ideal I use this ski carrier on a thule rack system with aerobars on a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The mounting brackets are too large (actually sort of clunky)and make the rack stand too tall. There is a company making an aftermarket adapter for this rack and the thule bar system that looks and works better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Install Took 5-10 minutes to get this up. It is nice with the built in locks. Even though I have a small car the sliding feature really makes it easy to load boards/skis into it. It will be definitely worth it for people with SUVs or larger vehicles.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Vulnerable to Theft I bought this ski rack recently. It is easy to fasten to my car's roof rack and the sliding feature works great on my SUV. But the rubber attachment straps can easily be cut within seconds and the rack and skies stolen even when double locked. This actually happened to my son-in-law who had the same rack (with my skies locked in). Six pairs of skies and the rack were stolen. This criticism applies to all similar Thule racks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snowboard Rack Works great, very convenient. Not only can you lock the rack, but also the attachment to the vehicle. Only thing that could be better is the slider only works when tab is down and allows boards to slide off. Overall, it's a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rack Easy to take on and off vehicle, less than 10 minutes. Nice and big, can fit lots of gear in it. The pull out feature is really nice for not having to climb all over your car every time you want to get something.

Questions & Answers

Are there two carriers in a box or are they sold individually?

Asked by: Human
​This ski carrier is sold as a pair. One piece for the front crossbar and one piece for the rear crossbar.

When mounting to a Thule Aerobar system, does each unit require mounting with a rubber attachment strap, or screw directly into the crossbar for greater security? It appears that the Thule Snowpack 6 mounts directly into the crossbar. Please clarify.

Asked by: fmobley21
This ski carrier fits directly on AeroBlade crossbars via the SpeedLink mounting system which wraps around the crossbars. There is not a way to mount this carrier directly to the track on the AeroBlades.

The picture depicts that the speedlink mounts are both evenly centered on both sides, but when I received them it that was not so and doesn't look like they're adjustable to slide over. Or are they?

Asked by: A9211
​Out of the box the SpeedLink mounts on this ski carrier need to be rotated 90 degrees using the knobs on the SpeedLink mounts.

we have a 2015 Nissan Exterra - it has large oval cross bars. Will this ski rack fit the large Nissan cross bars?

Asked by: Scott
Thule does not recommend the Universal Pull Top 6-Ski Carrier for your vehicle. They do recommend their SnowPack ski/snowboard carriers.

Will this fit on a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee?  Also is there anything else I would need to buy in addition to this?
