This has been working well for me, holds 2 large reels without a problem and isn't higher than the Thule box. Pick up the box at Homie depot or an auto store. remove the hinges from the back and put them on the side and a hasp on the other side. Cut the top about 1" the length both sides then pick up some pipe insallation that they use for ac units (the rubbery kind not the styrofoam and put it where you made the cuts. (I put epoxy on the nuts by the hinges so they couldn't be screwed off) Bolted the box right through my bars (don't forget to drill some holes in the back of the box on the bottom just in case water gets in. I haven't had that problem yet and its been a few months now. I also switched off to a shackless lock so it couldn't be cut. Hopes this helps. If they want your stuff they will get it but this will make it a little harder and keep it out of sight.
