The items ordered were replacements for a couple I damaged on a trip. They are the exact same item and work just as good as the originals. 149917


The part is not working out as planned. The latch seems to be popping loose during trips, releasing the back tire of the bike. First we lost a bike on a vacation trip this way, it was demolished on the highway. The actual problem became evident on a local bike ride when I returned home and the clasp had come loose again. Luckily our friends bike was spared. I am questioning if this part is actually OEM. I need to change my score to one star.

We are sorry to hear about this experience you had while using our T2 carrier. We would like to replace that part for you, so you can transport your bike with the assurance it will be held securely in place. We are not sure of the exact cause, but nonetheless we would like to get you a replacement to ensure no issues persist and no harm is done.

This was a perfect fit. In fact it appears to be more durable than the original part 101632


Not so well the strap holder broke again. I plan to come up with some other method for the rear tire tie down. Very disappointed with Thule in the design. This was my second replacement part for the same item. Will not buy another one.Maybe I am pulling the strap too tight when securing my bike. If that is the case I would think Thule would advise an owner about over tighten the hold down strap.

Wayne P - 09/26/2014


If you can provide us specific details on what exactly failed on the rear wheel retention device we can surely replace that under warranty for you. Because the strap ratchets in and then the cam folds down, often times folks over-torque them. You just need the wheel to be held in place securely, not super tight. Either way, we can certainly make this right for you.

The replacement part works great and I love the bike rack. Ive used it for years now and of the three Ive owned its been the best bike rack of them all.

I really love my Thule T2 Rack. The bikes sit firmly in the carrier trays. However, a week before my wife and I were set to leave for a 4 day ride along the Allegheny Passage the ratcheting strap hinge bracket broke. I needed the part quickly and etrailer didn't let me down. I ordered the replacement part online and I had it within 4 days. I also got a free replacement part from Thule but it wasn't going to arrive before my trip so I have a back-up part in case this happens again. This was my second order from etrailer and I was very happy with the service. 133583

This is my second order from etrailer, and both of them were handled professionally, delivered on time and with excellent communication. These rear retainers are an easy swap on the T2 and since they're so inexpensive, a great peace of mind purchase for your rack if the original ones are getting worn out. One phillips screw and an 11mm ratchet (on the inside of the crossbar) are all you need to remove the old ones and pop on the new ones. 101813

etrailer had exactly the part we needed, identified both by its product number and description, so it was easy to find. The web site experience was without flaws, the two-day shipping was perfect and the product arrived today in perfect shape and was back on our bike carrier within five minutes of opening the package. Very pleased with products and service. Thank you! 222526

This product is a perfect fit. This is my second one, the first one I had a problem with the strap but it was not a flaw in the product is was caused by the way I was using the strap. Learned from my mistakes, so I purchased another one from etrailer. Pleased with the service I get from this site. 119767

Replaced original retention holder on Thule rack where strap-ratchet was broken. Product was exactly as described, the price was fair, and shipping was fast! Hope I don't break another, but would definitely order a replacement from etrailer again. 68098

Etrailer site was very easy to navigate. I found exactly what I needed. The price was best I had seen. Easy to order. Regular updates on my order up to delivery. Recommend this site to anyone looking for Thule replacement parts. 223935

I backed into a tree and broke a wheel tray. The replacement worked perfectly. The price was much less than anywhere else, the product was identical to the original, and the delivery was fast. I am very satisfied with this purchase. 208194

somehow the old rear retention on our thule bike rack was tagged in a parking lot. i was able to bend the clip to where it was useable. later i felt it was better to replace it with a new one, just for the peace of mind. 52714

I purchased this as a replacement part for my Thule rack when the original clamp rusted and broke. Took two minutes to slide the original part off and this one on. Works perfectly. 182828

Replacement part for the Thule T2 hitch mount bike rack. Our buckle broke and this was the fastest and cheapest place to get the part. Delivered fast and a breeze to swap out. 185129

Service is great. Unfortunately the grommet on the product failed - twice. Not e-Trailer's fault, but sending both pieces back...maybe they can get replacements from Thule. 123888

The Product is exactly what I was expecting. I haven't installed it yet but it is an exact replacement. My order was delivered quickly with great customer service. 202579

Fits better than the one it was replacing (much tighter so that it doesn't slide back and forth when I turn corners.) It arrived one day before it was supposed to. 217142

The part works perfectly, but was a little surprised I couldn't buy the latch to repair the rear wheel retention unit. Thule must not make it available. 90170

Replacement needed due to breakage of the previous one. Etrailer had the best price and I received it quickly. Fit and works perfect. 198761

Kind of annoying that you need to buy the whole unit when the clasp breaks; but easy to install and not too pricey to replace it. 217255
