Great replacement cradles for my bell bike rack.

Excellent replacement on my Thule four bike carrier. I had two original Thule cradles that cracked. For the replacement parts, both parts were a snug fit. So I used windex (for lubricant-lubes easier movement on the carrier pipe but dissipates quickly ) and a dead blow hammer and a drift to move the new cradle into position on the carrier. The displayed close up picture, cradle on the left, is the replacement. The cradle on the right is the original Thule cradle. I would re-purchase the same product.

After purchasing a used bike rack, ( Saris ). I needed to replace all of the cradles because they were barely usable and did not trust them to hold the bikes in place. I measured the diameter of the rack which was roughly 1". The pieces were really snug and I had to work them on forcefully. But I think a tight fit was needed to ensure that it will remain stable. As long as I measure I think that Etrailer.com products can help you repair or replace any parts u may need.

Perfect. Received extremely fast. Thanks they fit My Allen Bike rack perfect Allen includes cheap Nylon straps that come loose and I prefer the rubber straps for easier connect . Thanks

UPDATED TIPS!! This is my second order with etrailer for these cradles. This time I ordered 4 packs to upgrade an Allan 4-bike hitch rack with 1" bars (8 total cradles). The original cradles are plastic, rotate freely, and use nylon straps and plastic adjusters that I was not a big fan of. I like how the new rubber straps tension your bike or bar down quickly and easily, and it doesn't rotate while you're loading or unloading your bike(s). The easiest way I found to get them on: ** Make sure the SQUARE cradle "hook" is facing the car, and the DIAMOND hook is facing back toward the bar ends. Smear hand sanitizer (I know you have some) on the inside of the rubber cradle, and on the end of your rack bar. You'll notice it's too small to simply slide on. So this is where a rubber mallet comes in handy. After I positioned the cradle over the bar, I covered it with a shop towel/rag and hammered it until the bar is all the way through the cradle. Then, I smear more sanitizer over the rest of the bar, cover the cradle with a shop towel, and grip it with channellock pliers. Rotate it back and forth while pushing back on the cradle along the bar; be patient, it'll get moving. It took me about 45 min. to slowly learn this method, then get all 8 cradles on.

I needed to replace my cradles because the original straps broke off. These fit perfectly and are very easy to use. I didn't want to by a new rack so these replacement cradles worked out perfectly!



- HR740-P
by:

Love it, perfect fit on my Xport rack. All I needed was a replacement strap, but the critical factor was the diameter of the rack arm which was 1". The first straps I ordered didn't work but this order was perfect.



- HR740-P
by:

Great product fit perfect on my old Hollywood rack No problems at all .



- HR740-P
by:

The "saddles" that hold the bike frame were hard to slip on, but that means they won't slip easily - my bike has ridden about two thousand miles with no problems. The straps are difficult to work at first, but after several fastenings and unfastenings they work well. Eventually the rubber on these may crack because of sun exposure or air pollution, but I will buy another pair.


Comments
The rubber parts have been exposed to sun and air for about two years now and show no signs of deterioration, cracking, etc. It may sound gross, but the straps are easier to slip on and off if I moisten them with saliva. A great purchase.

Cradles for bike carrier fit and look like they will work great. Working with the company for an exchange went well after our first order was the wrong size. It took awhile to get the right ones because they were out of stock. the shipping amount charged to return first order was more than what we paid to get them which was a surprise but everything else went fine.

These products are both universal and durable. Great value, great service.

I purchased these mounts as a replacement for the mounts on a Bell hitch-mounted bike rack. They were a very snug fit, but worked out perfectly.



- HR740-P
by:

Like a lot of reviews here, I used this to update an old Bell 2-bike carrier with 1" bars. These are in a totally different quality class than the originals; I'm so glad to have throw the old ones in the trash. Installation tip: I used very thick, soapy water to lube the arms and inside of these cradles. Then I wrapped a garage towel around the cradle so it doesn't get damaged, and used channellock pliers (with its largest opening) to grab, rotate, and push the cradle on to the bar. Move it to where you want it, and once the soap dries, it's not moving. Trust me, this tip will save you grief and heartache.

Great product with a seamless ordering process. This was a replacement for a Schwinn bike rack and they are of a much better quality than the plastic ones that came with the original unit. I had read reviews of difficulty putting these on, but with a little WD-40 on the inside of the cradle, and wiping some on the 1" post with your finger, they slide on with little effort. Will definitely be ordering more to replace when needed.

Exactly what we needed to replace the broken straps on our bike rack. These replacements have lasted over a year without any signs of wear at all. Easy to install and use.



- HR740-P
by:

Highly durable tested them out with 4 full size mountain bikes. When installing these new cradles it was difficult even with soap or Vasaline however old ones were easy to get off so I used them as a bumper between the end of my hammer and the new Cradles as I wacked them into position using the cradles one on top of another. Came out nice especially because I sprayed the rack with matte black before i installed cradles looking back thats probably why the cradles were so difficult to install. But all in all I renewed my rack after ordering 8 of these cradles for a 4 bike hitch rack.

HR740-P Replacement Standard Cradles for Hollywood Racks Bike Carrier with 1" Arms - Qty 2 I bought these from etrailer - they arrived in a reasonable time frame and work just as needed. You may need some vaseline to get them on the rack. I would purchase from etrailer in the future.

E-trailer was extremely prompt in processing the order. They provided a timeline through the entire process. It was shipped within one day after receiving the order and they kept me advised as to the delivery date. In fact it arrived one day sooner.I install the cradles on an older model Bell bike rack with 1" arms. The cradles were a tight fit as I needed to tap them on the arms using a rubber hammer. The snug fit is a positive feature as lateral movement has been eliminated.

A couple of years ago I bought and inexpensive hitch rack to carry my road and mtb for short distances of a few miles. Didn't use it very often as I have a Suburban so really only used it about six times. Worked alright but I wasn't a big fan of the velcro loops that held the bike(s) but it seemed to work okay. I was going on a long trip out of state and needed to take the bikes on the rack. I was very concerned about the cheap velcro and rubber retainers holding up over the road for 1000 miles each way. Last thing I wanted to have happen was my $1200 to become roadkill because of a cheap strap. Needless to say I was pretty sure that I wouldn't find anything of use by Googling the manufacturer, so I decided I would just see what was out there. I ran across the etrailer site and found these cradles. Based just on the specs I thought they would probably work. And for about $10 a set they were a bargain. So I ordered two sets. I was interested to see how well they worked when the arrived. They fit my rack perfectly. There is an allen bolt to tighten them up on the rack arms so they don't slide around. The rubber strap is more than enough to hold even some weighty bikes. Not cheap junk here, these are quality cradles. Just by adding these I've transformed my cheap rack for getting around town to one that I have no concerns about taking long distance. Service from etrailer was great. They shipped very fast, sent my an email with tracking and the order arrived in under a week. That's without expedited shipping, just the low cost option. I couldn't be more satisfied and would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone looking for bike rack parts. And probably other things they sell as well. I know that I'll keep them in mind if I need anything else.


Comments
The replacementupgrade cradles are just as excellent a product today as they were a year ago. I have had zero issues with them since I installed them. I couldnt ask for a better part for my hitch rack.I would not hesitate to purchase them again or recommend them to a friend.

Received my replacement parts today. The site was very clear on the size bar that the cradle replacements fit. They fit perfect and were well made and strong. It made my hitch bike rack like new and now useable. Recommended this sight to my daughter who also needs replacement for her tule hitch bike rack.

Delivery was good and the product was not exactly like I wanted but close enough to work. My bicycle rack is about 20 years old and I was lucky to even find parts that would fit.

Saddles fit my old no-name rack 1.00 inch diameter tubes perfectly with a little lube. Straps have right amount of holes to permit snug grip of bikes. Much more robust than the original thin saddles. Very pleased and recommend these as solid and economical.

I ordered these as replacement anchors for a Bell bike rack (2 bikes) with 1” tubing. After removing the old broken ones, these slid on with a very tight fit. Tested them and they fit the bike frames well and hold them securely. They have given my old bike rack a new life and I’m very pleased.
