Another great replacement part for my lost knob. 484019

I bought these on replace lost originals because they were cheaper than the non-locking knobs. I have had an immediate problem with them. When screwed on unlocked they would automatically lock themselves when unscrewing. It took 15 - 20 minutes to get it off again. It seems the resistance to unscrewing rotates the locking mechanism and I had to make many attempts at forcibly holding the key in the unlock position while rotating the knob before they would unscrew. I cleaned the light rust off of the threaded post and greased. Seems to work better now. But it looks lIke this will require regular matainence to keep them function properly. 596925


Comments

Sometimes in manufacturing the 3 screws under the knob have been torqued down to much, which leads to the issue that you are talking about. All you have to do is loosen off the 3 screws and the issue should be resolved.

Bought the big Swagman bike carrier at a second hand store and the locking knob had no key. Etrailer pulled through and had a replacement that fit perfectly. When the new knob arrived, it miraculously was keyed the same as the old one! Either they’re all made with the same key or I got lucky. But now I’ve got two functional locking knobs with keys. Thanks to whomever packed my order. 543258

I purchased this product as a replacement as I had lost the key to the original. The first one would not screw down the full way so I contacted the company and they quickly sent a replacement. Unfortunately the 2nd replacement also had the same problem as the 1st. It would not screw down tight. Instead of bothering to contact the company again, I simply ran a tap through and fixed the threads. After fixing the item it now works as intended. 666624

Purchased these locks to go with the Swagman 3 bike rack and Roadmaster dual hitch receiver adaptor. These items are excellent quality and work perfectly while traveling with my motor home. I am able able to pull my Jeep and carry my bicycles together with extreme ease. These products make life on the road and camping so much easier. 512728

I meant to call in but forgot to do so. I purchased 2 replacement knobs, one locking and one that is not. I was very disappointed in the locking knob as it did not work after maybe 3 times it was used. The locking mechanism was loose and it just spins - it is not usable. 474601

Identical replacement locking knob. It appears that the knob threads onto the existing threaded stud, however I was unable to remove the stud from the original knob. So I had to remove the stud and gear assembly and put it in the new knob. The "gear" is the piece that engages with the lock cylinder to loosen and tighten. Works great. 420148

Comments

I had to replace the locking cap as it was difficult to get open. The bike rack is great even though with 3 bikes it has a tendency to swing back-n-forth. I have to use several tie-downs to keep everything in place. The rack is great for 2 bikes but 3 is a little much.

As far as I Know it is still working fine. I actually inherited the bike rack and had the same style but for 4 bikes. I knew a friend who needed a rack so I fixed the 3 bike rack, the one that received the new lock and gave it to my friend. They love it and have used it several times.

Real people with a sense of humor, friendly that can get the product out the door and in my hands lickity split!! I wasn't sure how or where I was going to get these parts that someone had stolen (karma whoa to whomever). I called Swagman and they referred me to etrailer. Excellent!!

Works as advertised. Using this on a Swagman 4 bike rack. Had to buy 3 extra as the rack only comes with one locking knob. In hindsight, I should have ordered over the phone, as then I could have asked to have the same key code ordered that's the same as what came with the bike rack, because now I have two different keys for the locking knobs. But overall a great product. 81279

  • Removing Swagman Locking Knob Part # P1040 Without My Original Key
  • I called our representative at Swagman and the best way to remove your locking knob # P1040, without your key, is to use a pair of needle nose plyers. On the backside of the locking knob attach the plyers around the threaded portion and twist it until it releases. Swagman does not offer replacement keys for their bike racks as stand-alone items, so your best option would be replace your locking knob, once your current one is removed. I have included a picture to the right to show...

  • What is the Difference Between Swagman Bike Rack Locking Knob # P1040 and Knob # P1009
  • The difference between the locking knobs for Swagman bike racks, # P1040 and P1009, is the type of bolt that they accept.

  • Will Replacement Locking Knob # P1040 Fit Older Swagman XP Bike Rack
  • I honestly don't know why there is the slight number difference but I can say that if you have the Swagman Original or XP Series bicycle carrier and it is at least a 2009 or newer the Replacement Locking Knob # P1040 will fit. Sometimes manufacturers will slightly change the design of a part which could be what happened here. This has been confirmed with Swagman and since we unfortunately don't have any replacement keys, replacing your locking knobs is your best bet.

  • If your Swagman Original 3 Bike Rack, # S64152-2, has studs that come out of the base of the top plate and take a wing nut style knob then you will need the Replacement Locking Knob, # P1040 for 2009 and Newer bike racks.

  • Can Swagman Locking Knob part # P1040 Be Used to Secure Bikes on Swagman XC2 Bike Rack
  • Using this lock # P1040 on the Swagman XC2 Bike rack, part # S64650, will not secure the bikes. It would only secure the wheel mounts to the rack. If you are wanting to prevent the bikes from theft with that particular bike rack, use a cable lock like part # CAB-10. Run it through the bike frame and the safety chain loops that are on the hitch.

  • Recommended Bike Rack Similar to Old Rack Attack 3 Bike Carrier
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13530 is a 2 inch receiver opening and based on your photo the Rack Attack bike carrier is a really old style that is no longer made and we don't carry any adaptors for. My recommendation is to use a similar style carrier like the Swagman Original - 3 Bike Rack for 2" Trailer Hitches # S64152-2. There are also locking knobs # P1040 and hitch pin lock and anti-rattle # S64027 which I recommend.
