Video Transcript for Pro Series Bike Carrier Replacement Frame Mount Cradle Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the replacement frame mount cradle for the Pro Series, Tow Ready, and Reese Eclipse bike carrier, whether it's the two, three or four bike version, part number is 63148.Now this cradle's gonna be an exact replacement so it's gonna have all the same features the original cradles on your rack had. It's gonna work out for the Reese Explorer, for the Tow Ready, and for the Pro Series Eclipse racks. You'll see it shares that same vinyl rubber to protect your bike and the hook and loop strap that comes around and connects it. Now the replacement of your cradle could be for any different reason, maybe you've busted your strap, maybe it's become bent, damaged, or just corroded.It's a pretty simple process to replace it, we're gonna use a 5-32th inch Allen key and we'll remove the two screws located inside. Now on the bottom side they're in weld nuts, you won't have to worry about having an additional wrench or anything like that. Once we have those two screws out we're just gonna lift the cradle up and off, at that point you'll grab your replacement cradle and just reuse those two screws to get it put back in place.

You'll see here the two weld nuts that those will go down in, just get them lined up, and reattach. Now once we have those tightened down we're ready to start enjoying our rack again.That's gonna complete our look at the replacement frame mount cradle for the Pro Series, Tow Ready, and Reese's Eclipse bike racks.

Replace a damaged, missing or worn-out cradle on your Reese 63120, 63123 or 63124 hitch-mounted bike rack. The replacement cradle bolts to the top plate of your rack with your existing hardware.


Not the first here to come for a replacement part for an old Xport bike rack.

The original part was well work out after years of daily commuting use (plastic velcro loop broke and velcro wasn't holding anymore).

I couldn't find any info about replacement parts so did some googling around and stumbled onto this site. The Pro series bike rack looked VERY similar to my Xport rack.

It is a perfect match! I basically have a new bike rack. I plan on ordering another for when the rear holder wears out.

For reference I've attached a picture of my rack. The rear holder is the original part, and the front holder is this new replacement part. You can also see it's branded Xport.

Hope this helps someone in the future.


I fastened two of these on trailer hitch mounting bike-rack that I fabricated. I added locking washers to secure the nuts and bolts in place, and everything is holding fast a year later. I like these very much.


Fit well replaced broken part


Thanks to I was able to build my own bike carrier. I am very pleased with the bike cradles that were quickly delivered to my doorstep. Thanks etrailer for a great product at a fair price.

The cradle works so well that a friend had to order his own!

Fast delivery. The replacement item appears part looks to be of better quality than the original.


I'm not a internet shopper.
ease of shopping and product availability, made purchase of my "Tow Ready" bicycle hitch carrier replacement parts a DREAM!.
I will use again.


These are exact replacements and take all of about 5 minutes to install. Shipping was fast and the price was reasonable. As usual, etrailer is the first and last place I find products related to towing.

GREAT! Actually better than the original.

Instead of getting rid of a reliable bike rack I've had for over ten years now due to the Velcro straps wearing out on the cradles looks like I'll be able to get another 10 years out of it since I found these replacement cradles at etrailer.

Bought one to make sure it would fit. Ordered two more the day the first one arrived. Perfect fit.

Spending less than $50 all in to restore my bike rack sure beat trekking down to the local bike shop and shelling out over $200 for of those racks that ends in a vowel.

Great service too. I really liked the shipping notice that used a map to show the last known location of the shipment.


I ordered these to replace the ones on a bike rack I have. They are nearly identical to the ones I had before, except even better. The old ones had a plastic loop for the velcro; these have a metal one.

100 satisfied. Use these every day to haul a recumbent trike. I have recommended them to others.
Al G - 07/30/2015


This replacement worked perfectly. The pre-drilled holes were exactly 3 inches apart which lined up with my old bicycle rack perfectly.
The screws provided were of excellent quality.
It would have saved me a short trip to the hardware store if two lock nuts would have been in the package as well, but less than fifty cents later i just bought my own, no big deal. Looks to be solidly made and well constructed.
Am quite satisfied with my purchase.


Bought 1 a few weeks ago for my long travel mtn bike. Off the shelf racks wont work so built a custom rack. These work great for application so i bought more. Sturdy and well built. Heavy duty velcro straps and rubber inserts where frame sits. Very nice and am very happy!!


Bought these for my homemade hitch mount bike rack. Great product, and Great service from


Perfect replacement parts for my very old Performance car rack!

Perfect replacement part!
Ron - 08/24/2016


Fast shipping product came with extra screws which is always helpful.

After a year of use the clamps held together well. A couple of the mounting bolts have began to rust.
Matt - 11/02/2020


The product was exactly what I needed. The whole process of ordering, being notified about the order, getting the product and installing was delightful.


I have modified my other bike racks to the etrailer/pro systems bike cradles. I made a lightweight but strong rack for friend


Please sell with optional bolts. I replaced the original bolts only to realize the bolt strength was insufficient for the load. Consequently, the Home Depot bolts snapped under the load and I almost lost my bikes! The cradles are great, but their only as good as the bolts their held on by. Please let others know!’


I tried two "local dealers" of Tow Ready. Not interested in helping me. I sent emails to three e merchants and only one answered. E Trailer not only answered promptly, but handled my order immediately. Thanks for their great service.


EXACTLY what I wanted and ordered!! Because l’ve had the bike rack for so long I didn’t know if I could find replacement parts. LOVE this bike rack


The Frame Mount Cradle is exactly what I expected; it is even a little more heavy-duty than my original one. Ordering was simple and delivery was on time.


This product is a perfect replacement piece. I am very happy with it. Etrailer shipped it very very quickly as it arrived only 2 days after the order was placed.


Worked great and fit perfect.


Good product. Fast shipping! A plus! I used these to build my own custom bicycle rack.
I love em!


have 3 4 bike hitches that we rent with r/v seams that the rubber doesn't
last long


These saddles are excellent quality and the base is made of metal which isn't indicated in the description. Will have to modify for my particular application but very pleased with the product.
