N.R. says - I recently bought this box under the impression it was supposed to be the best option for protecting my gear and luggage inside the roof box from water / rain and keeping everything dry? I waited a few months to finally install the box for a road trip. I then loaded it up and drove 300 miles, half the trip on the road was in rain and at destination everything inside was soaking wet and puddles of water inside the box! Not impressed! I've never had this issue with any other cargo roof boxes I've owned over many years.
ORS Crew answers - Thank you for the feedback N.R.! We take this information very seriously. In this case we spoke with Thule Racks directly, and we received some very interesting news... Thule discovered in the 1st quarter of 2013 that specifically the 625 Force XL and 626 Force XXL roof boxes were prone to 'fish mouthing', a term Thule Racks uses to describe the tendency of a roof box lid to open up a bit in the front (looking like an open mouth bass fish). This is caused by the lack of reinforcement in the box lid to withstand the tremendous wind forces produced during travel. Thule took these Force boxes out of production and redesigned them using the same front lid reinforcement bar and rivets engineering as the premium series Thule Sonic roof boxes in order to fix this issue. For clarity, Thule sent us a couple pictures (see pictures below) of what this new reinforcement bar and rivets design looks like. If your Force box does not look similar to then you unfortunately do not have the 2nd generation design. Both ORS Racks Direct and Thule Racks are committed in rectifying the situation, immediately willing to proceed further with whatever is necessary to ensure your product satisfaction you deserve as a much appreciated ORS Racks Direct and Thule Racks customer. For certain we will contact you and follow up more regarding this issue.
