Thule end stops - They’re great product!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer
Fit:
True to size

These stops work great for securing 2 canoes on top of my truck and they were so valuable to keep the canoes secured while driving through numerous miles of powerful crosswinds.

Not for my car / canoe combo, but ok

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

My Subaru Forester has Thule load bars that are a little wider than the car, on purpose. The load stops fit on the racks, but they do NOT fit right to hold my 40" wide canoe. I may use them to hold something else in-place, like lumber or a ladder maybe. But not for a canoe.

moving lumber

I tie down everything with Thule straps because they're simply the best. I make no exception when strapping down stuff with the load stops. You just "lay" the load stop over your roof rack bar, put a screw through the bottom of the load stop (underneath the rack bar), and you're done. My 12 year old put these stops on my car for me in the Home Depot parking lot while I was unloading the car. They're that simple.

do these slide on the bar or do they clamp on. In other words would I have to take off my bike holders and bars to slide these on or can I put them on and off as I need simply?

No you will not need to slide these onto the bar. Just place them were you want them, then tighten the bolt. Installation instructions are available at: http://www.thuleracks.com/instructions/503.pdf
