The right part! I had somehow lost one of the tube cradles for my two bike Saris rack. etrailer had the right part in stock and shipped it out the same day I ordered it. They sent me order tracking information so I could follow the shipping process. The order arrived in about a week, which is the standard these days. No problems otherwise. I would definitely use this vendor again.

Ordered on Sunday and received on Friday. My prior cradles had started to wear through and scratch up my bikes. Bought these to replace. Much improved design, able to cinch better around tubes and are all plastic (good) as compared to the originals which were metal under the rubber.

The whole experience was 5 stars, from order to receipt of the product [bicycle rack replacement part]. Order acknowledgment and shipping notice were very prompt and the item was received in just a couple of days, standard shipping. I can’t imagine the experience having been any better!

Easy to install. Way better cradle than the one I had that came with the original bike rack.

The replacement cradle is an improvement over the oem cradles. The installation took a little more time than I anticipated but was doable by this novice do it yourselfer with hand tools. I had to remove the support bars from the base and slide the cradles over the bottom of the support bars of my Saris Freedom 4 paying attention to the orientation of the cradles. The new cradles support the bike frame without damaging it, no metal on metal contact at all. The cradles were delivered timely and as described. They are of good quality and an excelent value in my opinion.



- SA24382

To replace the cradle the support arm must be removed. This is easy using a large hex (or pliers to hold the outside but that’s a bit harder) and a socket or open end wrench. Remove the support arm and place it on a workbench or table. If the cradle support that you are replacing is the one on the same vertical support as the spring-loaded pull handle, then you need to remove the pull handle as well. First remove the plastic face that says “pull” from the pull handle with a flat screwdriver or similar tool. Use a 5/16 socket on the nut that is inside the pull handle, and needle nose or some other pliers to hold the round end. There are two flat surfaces on the “bolt” inside of the assembly where the spring is located. These might be helpful to keep the pliers from slipping. Once the nut is removed the spring assembly slides out. From this point it is easy to slide off the old cradle support and slide on the new one. Replace the pull handle assembly and then reinstall the support arm on the rack. Voila!

I got this as a replacement after I dinged the first one which was not the fault of Saris. Watch your back up camera carefully when you have a rack on the back. I find the system for undoing the hold-down strap a bit difficult on the Saris. It's fairly easy to ratchet the strap tight around the tube, but taking it off the bike is harder than it should be. None of that is the fault of rack attack. They are great.

This part was exactly what we needed for our Saris 4 bike hitch. We had one piece broken and were able to locate and purchase from etrailer. The experience was fantastic. I ended up with great customer service and a great part that is still in great condition.

This part worked perfectly as a replacement for the original one. I've had it for over a year now. No issues whatsoever. It was difficult to find this part at the local bicycle retail stores. eTrailer was the best option, if not the only one, and was reasonably priced. eTrailer delivered the order quickly.

Perfect I called the bike shop and asked for this replacement part they told me $99 through Saris however etrailer had the replacement part for under $30 with shipping cant beat that.

I bought this to replace 1 of the cradles. They have redesigned them to be wider and accommodate a larger frame, which is awesome! Feels really well made, great quality.

Product arrived on-time, and exactly as shown. No hassles, no issues, pretty simple -- as it should be. Additionally: etrailer had this part whereas other sites didn't -- not even the manufacturer? Pretty good, I'd say..

  • How To Install the Replacement Tube Cradle and Strap for Saris Freedom Bike Platform Racks
    I don't have any specific install advice on the Replacement Tube Cradle and Strap for Saris Freedom Bike Platform Racks part # SA24382 per se but it looks like one of our customers had a pretty good write-up on this which I attached below for you.

  • What Size Downtube Does Cradle of Saris Freedom Bike Rack Fit
    I reached out to a representative of Saris who told me the Replacement Tube Cradle and Strap # SA24382 will fit a downtube of approximately 5 inches. This is a replacement cradle for the Saris Freedom bike racks such as # SA4412B which is a 2-bike rack that fits 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch hitches, as well as the 4-bike rack # SA4414B which is for 2 inch hitches only. Since you have a carbon frame you may want to also consider a wheel mounted bike rack (assuming it does not have fenders)...

  • Removing Old Cradle From Saris Freedom Platform Bike Rack
    The Yellow knob on the Replacement Tube Cradle and Strap for Saris Freedom Bike Platform Rack, part # SA24382 is actually a thumb screw. If the knob was damaged on the screw you may be able to use something like pliers or vise grips to remove the old screw. You should be able to unscrew the knob and slide it off the bike rack. The # SA24382 includes the cradle and the strap and will work with most Saris Freedom platform bike carriers.

  • Replacing the Cradle Fixture on the Saris Bones 3 # SA801 Trunk Mount Bike Rack
    I have a solution for you to replace the anti-sway straps on your Saris Bones 3 SA801 but, unfortunately, the Replacement Tube Cradle and Strap # SA24382 that you mentioned will only fit on the Freedom Platform Bike Racks, like part # SA4412B, from Saris. If you are just needing to replace the anti-sway strap on your Bones 3, which is the strap that secures the upright part of your bike frame, then you will need part # SA12398. If you need to replace a cradle, then you will have to...
