The old cradles on my hitch rack were worn and loose and the straps had disintegrated. New cradles and straps seemed preferable to buying a new rack as they have become very pricey. I am very pleased with the new cradles from etrailer as they appear to be much more robust than the old sets that came with my rack. They shipped quickly and I definitely would do business with etrailer again. 373600

my problem was finding replacenent cradles for a bell hitch style bike rake. the old cradles were starting to crack and disintegrate. after talking with george, i choose this item to replace them. there are four cradles on the rack, but only two were completely broken. i gave it the 4 rating as i/we have not taken the bike rack out yet so i cannot comment on how well it works/does not work. they were not difficult to get onto the rack and seem to be holding tightly in place. if they work i will likely replace the remaining two cradles. 191841

Has worked well for most bikes we have. It doesn't hold bikes with a very wide tube frame without extra straps. 580362

I about freaked out when I saw the price of bike racks! OMG! pricey?!!! I get it, if you have an EXPENSIVE BIKE, but for us HACKERS....??? SOOOO....off to that discount hardware store, my go to place for stuff I only use once in a while. $38 bucks for a two bike rack. The "cradles were really soft rubber, screwed to the arms(in the wrong positions, with almost worthless velcro straps....Guaranteed to pull loose or break on first use...Yup the guarantee worked. First strap broke, even being careful. So...off to etrailer to see if maybe they had a replacement cradle that wouldn't "break the bank". I don't know why I said "maybe" because these guys have a ton of stuff! I always check with etrailer, cuz I never know what I'll find. AND....hold on to your....???? THEY actually BELIEVE in customer service!!!! What a concept! I've called a number of times looking for whatever and if they don't have it, they actually will give suggestions of where to try! What are they thinking? Looking for a repeat customer??? ANYWAY, found what I was looking for, but still a skeptic. The cradles are really snug to get on(spray silicone worked fine) and fit my 1"arms perfectly. After the silicone dried the cradles stayed put. Nice composite type stuff with some flex and the straps are heavy enough to take some wear. We'll see after the ARIZONA sun cooks them, how they last. Perfect fit, nice quality, FAST service, AND GREAT PRICE! What's not to like? Make check out to "Big Blowhard LLC" (kidding) 508209

Fits my grabber bike rack nicely! Arrived quickly and hassle free. 707055

Parts worked perfectly. They saved me from buying a new bike carrier. 704181

Include me among those who have upgraded their old Graber Outback (three-bike) carrier with the cheesy cradle/strap system. Taking advice from others, I used liquid hand soap and a sufficiently long 1-inch inside diameter piece of PVC pipe, then whaled away until all six cradles were in position. Took a little over an hour, and it looks like a brand new carrier now - not bad for <$50! 703784

The product was delivered much quicker than I anticipated. Received exactly what I ordered and very happy with the quality of the product. Although I have not had a chance to use this upgrade on my existing bike rack, I'm confident it is exactly what we needed. 703442



- 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. 691383

Got the package, ordering was quick and reasonable. Box was damaged a little bit (crushed on one end) but what I ordered couldn’t be damaged very easily. So no problem. Haven’t had a opportunity to install the bike rack holders but don’t expect any problems. 688807

The replacement cradles were easy to install and provide a significant better and more secure hold for bikes. Overall great experience with supplier. 686519

I finally got around to installing these on my ancient Bell hitch rack that cost me about $40 in 2008. While two sets of replacement cradles cost nearly what I originally paid for the whole rack, after looking at the price of new racks now, it was a bargain! I haven’t used them yet but they seem durable and sturdy. The main reason I want to write is to thank everyone who reviewed these earlier. They were very difficult for this older lady with arthritic hands to install and without advice, I would have assumed I had purchased the wrong size. After heating them for a few seconds in boiling water and with a bit of dish soap, I was able to get them on with the help of a pipe wrench. The wrench made dents in the sides, but I don’t imagine anyone will be looking that closely at them. I’m very happy I found these cradles! 665200

The product is just what we are looking for but we are having trouble getting a correct fit for our carrier. Our carrier is "homemade" and the bars are between the sizes offered. We need about a 1 1/8 inch. The quality is excellent, sturdy and well made. I would recommend these but they just didn't fit our carrier. Customer Service is top notch, very prompt responses and courteous. 603048

Part inside diameter was a 1/16 of an inch undersized. I needed to drill it out with a 1 inch drill and it slipped on with no problem. I bought these bike cradles and straps for an old Outback bike rack. The arms are exactly 1 inch. Hope this helps. 577926

  • Options for Cradles for Thule Revolver 964 Bike Rack
    While we have some options for you, the Replacement Cradle with Anti-Sway Attachment # 7524774001 is too large for the 1 inch diameter arms on your Thule Revolver 964 bike rack, as it is designed to fit 1-1/4 inch arms. The Replacement Stay-Put Cradle # 853-7887 with Replacement Strap # 852-3006-001 fits 1 inch diameter arms, as will the Replacement Standard Cradles for Hollywood Racks # HR740-P if you want to go that route.

  • Will Thule Apex Replacement Cradles Fit a Bell Bike Rack with 1 Inch Diameter Arms
    The replacement cradle # 7521513002 fits Thule Apex bike racks and they have arms that are approximately 1-1/4 inches in diameter. The cradles would be too large for your Bell rack. The Thule Stay-Put cradle, # 853-7887, will fit on 1-inch diameter arms, as will the T3, # 853-5829. Hollywood Racks offers a 2-cradle set, # HR740-P, that will fit 1 inch diameter arms. I would go with one of these three products since they all fit 1 inch diameter arms.

    Thank you for the photo of your bike rack cradle/strap assembly that requires a replacement. We do carry all sorts of replacement parts for bike racks from many makers, including straps and complete cradle assemblies. Links to both categories are provided for you. Substitute cradle and/or strap parts can often work just fine. If you rack happens to have 1-inch diameter arm tubing you could use the Replacement Standard Cradles for Hollywood Racks, part # HR740-P. If you rack has 1-1/4-inch...

  • Replacement Bike Rack Arm Cradles Made of Rubber
    Bike rack cradles are primarily plastic for the main body, some incorporate rubber parts. But a cradle that is all rubber is not available. The replacement cradles for Hollywood Racks bike racks with 1 inch arms, # HR740-P, is probably going to come the closest to what you are looking for. I went out to our demo studio and inspected any and all cradles I could find. These are going to be the best option.

  • Would the Frame Cradles # HR740-P Work Well for Narrow Frame Bike
    Without knowing what Swagman bike rack you have it is hard to say for certain if the # HR740-P would work as a replacement cradle for it. However, this rack is designed to fit 1 inch diameter arms, so if you measure the diameter of the arms on your rack and they are 1 inch these would fit. I attached a review video of the bike rack these cradles were designed to fit. If you fast forward to the 2:07 mark you will see how bikes get loaded onto these cradles. Another option you have...

  • Replacement Parts for Hollywood Racks Over the Top Bike Carrier
    In this case, you'll need to replace your Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier's (part # HRF2 ) anti-sway cradles with part # HR745AS. I contacted Hollywood Racks directly, and they confirmed that the cradles are not intended to move after they are installed onto the carrier. I recommend replacing them because they may move during transit and can potentially damage your bike or vehicle. If you need the regular cradles for the rack as well, they are part # HR740-P.

  • What is the Diameter of the Yakima Ridgeback Top Tube Diameter?
    The Yakima Replacement SuperCush Anti-Sway Cradle and ZipStrips # 8880598 that you mentioned, work with 1-1/8 inch arms, such as the Yakima RidgeBack # Y02457. If you have an Inno rack with arms that measure 1-1/8 inch then they could potentially work for you. There are also replacements for 1 inch arms from Hollywood Racks # HR740-P and 1-1/4 inch arms from Yakima # Y8890177.

    I can tell you how to determine if the Replacement Standard Cradles for Hollywood Racks Bike Carrier # HR740-P will work on your Graber bike carrier, but there is no way for us to know for certain because they have not been tested together. That said, if you measure the arms of your Graber carrier, and they are 1 inch in diameter (which is pretty standard) then the Replacement Cradles will absolutely work for you. Otherwise, if you are looking for a replacement upgrade 4-bike rack you...

  • Replacement Frame Cradle Recommendation for a Bike Rack with 1 inch Outer Diameter Arms
    The replacement cradle # 7521513002 fits Thule Apex bike racks and they have arms that are approximately 1-1/4 inches in diameter. The cradles would be too large for your Outback rack. The Thule Stay-Put cradle, # 853-7887, will fit on 1-inch diameter arms, as will the T3, # 853-5829. Hollywood Racks offers a 2-cradle set, # HR740-P, that will fit 1 inch diameter arms.

  • Possible Bell Right Up Bike Rack Frame Cradle Option
    To determine if any of the cradles we have fit your Bell bike rack you will need to measure the diameter of the arms the cradles slide onto. A 1 inch diameter or 1-1/4 inch diameter is fairly common. If the carrier has a 1 inch diameter then you could potentially use # HR740-P or # 853-7887. For a 1-1/4 inch diameter you could potentially use # 05002900000, # 852-3005-002, or # HR750-P. None of these cradles have been tested on a Bell bike rack but if the arm diameter is a match then...

  • Can a Hollywood Racks Bike Rack F1b have Standard Frame Cradles and Straps Installed on It
    I spoke to my contact at Hollywood Racks and he said that if you were to remove the outer ribbed tubes on the arms of your Hollywood Rack part # F1B you could install the Replacement Standard Cradles # HR740-P. However, if you did this you would lose the ability for the rack to be folded. If you want to get the replacement straps that are originally designed for your rack you would need to contact Hollywood Racks and order part number 15. We do not carry this part.
