Video Transcript for Review of Softride Bike Rack Accessories - Hook and Loop Straps - SR54FR

Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and we're going to be taking a look at the soft ride hook and loop tie down straps. So, you can use these for several different purposes. If you want to use them for your bike tie down you can to keep your bike wheel safely secured to your bike rack so it's not moving around, or you can use it for a hanging style bike rack.A lot of times that wheel is just hanging and dangling there, and it kind of swings around in the wind, so you can lock that into place by putting this around the wheel and then around the frame or the down tube, or the cross tube of your bike to help hold that in place. That way it's not moving around and it makes it a little bit easier to prevent it from whacking into your vehicle.You can also use this to hold up a pant leg while you're biking, so if you happen to be wearing some jeans, or slacks, or something like that while you're riding your bike, maybe you commute to work, something like that. You can use these to cinch up that extra material and keep it from getting caught in the spokes or from getting caught in the gears, or your chain, and mucking up your pants.So, keeps that secure. Just a hook and loop strap, so we'll have the loop material here and then the little hooks that grab into that and hold it really strongly.

We'll also get some little reflector pieces, and these are going to have a hook material on the back of those, so you can attach them to the loop material and hold that in place.So, that just creates a highly reflective surface on the strap to make you more visible at night. Alert other vehicles, other drivers that you're there. And you get one of those little squares per strap. Now, this is available in a four pack or as just a single strap.It's going to still come with that little reflector, even if you get this as a single strap, so you can utilize that to keep you more visible at night.The total length from end to end of the strap is 16 inches, but four of those inches is going to be taken up by the hook material, so the actual usable part of the strap is going to be 12 inches long, or about a foot.So, from here on back that's 12 inches in length. The width is about an inch, thickness about a quarter of an inch, and there's no stretch to them.

Just holds securely with that strap.Each of these little squares is about seven eighths of an inch on each side. And that's about all there is to it for our hook and loop tie downs. I hope this video has been helpful in deciding if this is going to be the right piece for you.Again, can be used for a lot of different scenarios, a lot of different options, so hopefully it'll get you out and rolling again. Thanks for watching and we'll see you next time.

  • Will the Softride Soft Velcro Tie Down Damage the Paint on Bicycles

  • Longer Version of the Softride Soft Hook-and-Loop Tie Down
    We do have longer straps available like part # HRSPRVEL which measures 16-3/8" long but we have not specifically tested this on a Trek Dual Sport so you will need to compare this to part # SR54FR which measures 12" long to see if it would work for you. If not, you can always combine two of the part # SR54FR to give you the length you need.

  • Will the Softride Soft Hook-and-Loop Tie-Downs for Bike Racks Work with Any Bike
    Yes, the Softride Soft Hook-and-Loop Tie-Downs for Bike Racks part # SR54FR is a universal strap that can be used on pretty much any bike or bike rack. The only issue we see sometimes is the distance between the wheel and frame is too large but all you will need to do in this case is join two of the straps together. These straps will do an excellent job of keeping the wheels for spinning while in transport. They also have many other uses. If you would also like a universal bike lock...

  • How to Carry Bikes on etrailer Folding Cargo Carrier
    Being able too carry your gear and a bike is one of the best features about the 24x62 etrailer Cargo Carrier # E98872. We used Swagman's The Claw Fork Mount Bike Carrier # S64700 in the video. For the back tire we used Softride Soft Hook-and-Loop Tie Downs for Bike Racks # SR54FR. The Claw is a standard fork mount design and it comes with the necessary hardware to mount it to floor of the cargo carrier. If you have a thru axle bike you can use Swagman Impakt Bike Rack # S64703. To...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for a 2019 Jeep Wrangler
    I recommend going with the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98856 for your 2019 Jeep Wrangler because it has a longer receiver portion (for more clearance) and a matte black finish that helps hide scratches much better than the glossy finish that is popular with other trailer hitches. When we installed this on a 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited we found that from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper measured 2-1/2" (see attached installation video)....

  • Recommended Cable Lock for the Reese Explore 4 Bike Rack
    I recommend using the etrailer 10' Long Cable Lock # e98891 to lock your bikes to the Reese Explore 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # 63124. Basically you'll need something that can go through the frames of all 4 bikes and then be secured on a point that isn't removable like the safety chain loop on your trailer hitch. The 10' of cable might seem a little excessive but sometimes it can feel like a puzzle getting the cable routed just right and this will make it easier on where you can route...

  • Recommended Fork Mount Bike Rack For 24x62 etrailer Cargo Carrier e98872
    There sure is! I recommend the Swagman Impakt Bike Rack - Fork Mount - Bolt On - 9 mm Quick-Release and 15 mm Thru-Axle Forks # S64703 and the Softride Soft Hook-and-Loop Tie Downs for Bike Racks # SR54FR to secure the rear tires. We had a chance to install both of these products on the 24x62 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # e98872 and found them to be a great option to allow you to carry your bike and cargo on the carrier. I included videos for each of the products mentioned...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a Bike Rack on a 2016 Acura RDX
    We always recommend using a trailer hitch with a 2" receiver over the 1-1/4" size because they have higher weight ratings and because you can use a wider variety of bike racks. Technically since the 1-1/4" is smaller it will be less noticeable but realistically there isn't that big of a visual difference between the 2 sizes. I recommend using the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch # C13130 for your 2016 Acura RDX which gives you that 2" receiver plus it installs in such a way that only the receiver...

  • Thule 2 Bike Rack Compatibility with Bikes to Keep From Hitting Against Each Other
    The Thule Apex XT 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # TH9024XT has stationary cradles that will space your bikes 7 inches apart which if further than most hanging bike racks. This bike rack cradles hold the bikes in 3 places to keep them from sway and hitting your vehicle or each other. I also recommend using the Softride # SR54FR to secure the front wheels to the frame to keep them from rotating. If your bikes have a step-thru frame, you may also want to consider using...

  • Recommended Bike Rack from 2015 VW Beetle TDI with AdBlue DEF tank
    For your 2015 Beetle TDI, since there aren't hitch solutions if you want a trunk mounted bike rack I recommend the Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack # Y02634. This bike rack is very well made and comes with the rack lock and bike locks. Then if you have step thru style bike frames I recommend using the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005 to create that top frame rail for level transport. I've attached a video to assist. I also...

    The Cam-Lock Ladder Strap with Snap Shackle for Rhino-Rack Aero/Sportz Crossbars - 20" Long # SLS5 does not need to be removed when not in use. You will however want to secure the slack to keep it from flapping in the wind as you stated. I recommend using a Velcro style tie-down like the Softride # SR54FR to secure the excess strap to your crossbar.

  • FullBack vs HalfBack Trunk Bike Racks for a 2015 Audi Q5
    The Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 and FullBack # Y02634 trunk mount racks are actually the best options for your 2015 Audi Q5. The only difference between these 2 racks (besides one being gray and one being black) is that the FullBack comes with bike and rack locks while the HalfBack doesn't. Since the price diffference is pretty minimal I recommend going with the FullBack because by the time you add locks to the HalfBack you will be over the price of the FullBack. If any of your bikes don't...

It has a couple of different ways to attach to your rear hatch so you can determine what fit you like. The additional angle options and connectors help make it an extremely strong and stable fit for most vehicles whether they have a spoiler or not. This rack has nice cradles to hold the bikes, but locks are not included. I recommend using a cable lock like # e98891...

There is not a trailer hitch that will fit the model that is all electric, but the hybrid models have a fit.

This is specifically made for vehicles like yours to avoid contact and damage to a spoiler. This is a very versatile and adjustable bike rack to meet your needs. I do recommend the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005 as well as the Softride # SR54FR to secure your front wheel to...

This bike rack doesn't come with locks but if you want to add some security you can use the Thule Passive Security Strap # TH533 for the rack and the Cable Lock # e98891 for your bike(s).

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11431 is a confirmed fit for 2013-2018 Ford Focus ST models. It is a confirmed fit for your 2018 model and will fit above the exhaust and under the bumper. This will work well for your bike rack, but you will want to make sure to install and uninstall the rack only after the exhaust pipes have cooled for safety when maneuvering in that tight space. I recommend the Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683 which will have the locks included. If...

You will use the upper hooks in anchor mode for this installation. There will not be any damage to your vehicle using this bike rack when installed as shown in the attached instructions.

Please note that Curt does recommend the use of a support strap like # 18050 when utilizing this trailer hitch with a bike rack. Then for a bike rack I recommend the Yakima FullSwing # Y02465...

If your spoiler is significantly higher you can use the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top # HRF2 instead which fits both the Sedan and Hatchback.

I recommend going with the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top bike rack. This comes in a 2-Bike version # HRF2 as well as a 3-bike version # HRF2-3 which are both confirmed to fit your 2018 CR-V. These are unique trunk mount racks that are designed to work around the spoilers on vehicles so that you don't have to worry about damaging it....

Both the discontinued Thule Vertex 2 Bike Rack and the Thule Helium Aero 2 Bike Rack # TH9042PRO will fit and work well on your vehicle. My recommendation is the Helium Aero # TH9042PRO because it not only comes with the both the bike and hitch lock needed but also is lightweight at 18.25 lbs, has road dampening cradles, and will better resist...

Since your Crosstrek does have a spoiler you will need to use the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 bike # HRF2 or 3 bike # HRF2-3 carrier. This is a great bike rack that was designed specifically for vehicles that have spoilers. If you check out the linked review video you can see how the arms can be adjusted to fit with your coupler.
