Thule feet are designed and tested to fit specific roof lines and existing factory racks to give you the strongest, safest and most secure foundations for transporting gear on your roof. Thule has dedicated employees whose only job is to measure and custom fit vehicles as they enter the market. The data these technicians gather is used to create the fit kit that ensures the rack feet recommended for your vehicle's roofline will precisely fit your vehicle.
The contents of the Podium fit kit varies according to roofline and application, but they can generally be described according to "fixed point" or "flush rail" attachment points. The former have been designed to interface directly with a part of a vehicle's roofline that has been designed by the auto manufacturer for roof rack attachment. The part is commonly referred to as a "fixed point" and can be anything from a nut that is welded onto the roof of the vehicle, a threaded post, or even a steel lashing point. In most cases, these kits are comprised of an interface hardware bag and a solid or hollow pad that will either sit directly on the roof of the vehicle, or surround this specific area. These kits are unique not only to the vehicle, but to the auto manufacturer's specially designed "fixed point".
"Flush rail" kits have been designed to clamp onto a specific vehicle's "flush rail", which is a feature on the roofline that is commonly installed in the ditch molding and rises up from the roofline. Unlike "raised rails", these rails do not have an opening for something to pass through underneath and attach to. Instead, they are solid and usually have a channel or ridge for these kits to attach to. Commonly, these kits are comprised of 2 brackets that kook together and mirror the profile of the rail, and have a rubber pad or "seal" to finish the look.
The Podium Fit Kit comes with everything required for installation, including detailed instructions. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.76.46Brand: Thule Part Number: KIT3068 UPC: 091021130685Product Reviews (2)Thule® KIT3068 - Podium Fit Kit (4 Pieces)Average Rating: 4.5 of 5APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY(4.5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITYGood Product!2012 Subaru Forester
