    HELP PLZ: identifying older Thule roof rack feet (have pics)

    Can anyone ID these feet? They look very similar to the 400XT, but without the plastic covering. I can see the rack also has the short roof attachment, but I am primarily interested in the foot shown alone in the photo.

    Just some background, I have Yakima Q-towers but they are not working on my car very well. So I'm trying to get a rack for cheap that will grip my roof in a better location which the Thule's appear to do.

    I can buy this rack for 75$ and then spend 60$ on a new foot kit and be done so thats pretty dang cheap! Thule says for the 400xt aero feet I can use the KIT2199 for my 2009 Honda Fit.

    Big thanks!!!!!

    Looks like a 400 foot set from the 1998-2000 era. Don't remember exactly when I bought mine. Not a bad price for the bars and feet.

    He had it on a 3-door 1998 Civic hatchback. He believes that he is using the 259 kit, which as far as I can tell only works with 400xt

    At this point I am thinking this will work for me and I'm scheduled to meet tomorrow. I tried to buy the fit kit locally so I could bring it with me to be sure, but none of the shops have it in stock.

    It looks like the setup that I had on my 87 pathfinder. Don't know the part numbers any more.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes
