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

Swagman makes excellent products and this is my second bike rack. I bought it for a compact car that has a class 1 hitch and it fits well. I also needed some replacement parts for my older XP model and they are great too. 723172

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 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

  • I Cannot Get My Swagman Lock # P1040 To Unlock
    I contacted our representative at Swagman about the Swagman Locking Knob, part # P1040. The representative at Swagman informed that to unlock the lock, you must turn the key 180 degrees. When you are turning the key the other direction and it just spins, this indicates that the lock is still locked.

  • Need Replacement Key for Locking Knob on Swagman XP4 Hitch-Mount Bike Rack # S64960
    Swagman does not offer replacement keys for their bike racks as stand-alone items. The replacement knob with two keys that you referenced, part # P1040, is for their roof-mount bike carriers (if made in 2009 or later). On the product page for this item you will also be able to see other available replacement parts for the XP racks. If you still have one of your original keys I suggest you visit an actual locksmith, rather than a hardware store, as this will offer the best odds for availability...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Locking Knob Needed to Secure the Top Plate on the Swagman Original 3 Bike Rack # S64152-2
    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. These knobs are not interchangeable between the model years of the bike racks so you will need to determine when the bike rack was made or purchased. If you are purchasing the bike rack new the Locking Knob, # P1040, would also be the correct knob. If your bike rack...

  • Swagman XP Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Replacement Locking Knob
    The Swagman XP Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Replacement Locking Knob, item # P1040, will only work with Swagman XP bike racks. As long as your bike rack is a Swagman XP this knob will fit. If the bike rack is some other brand of rack, then I cannot guarantee the knob will fit correctly.

  • Does the Bike Rack Replacement Locking Knob Screw On To the Fixed Stud On My Swagman XP Bike Rack
    Yes, the # P1040 replacement locking knob screws on to the mounting stud on your Swagman XP bike rack. It is essentially a large knob (wing nut) that is disabled when the key is turned to the locked position. When locked the knob will spin and cannot back the nut off of the stud, securing the bikes to the rack.

  • Difficulty Turning Key in Swagman Replacement Locking Knob
    We have not had any customer feedback with regards to the type of difficulty you're having locking and unlocking the Swagman Locking Knob # P1040, so it may indeed be in need of a replacement. With that being said the key may just need to be inserted a bit more to engage with the mechanism. Try sliding the key in like normal and then give it one more push, wiggling it a bit as you do so, to see if this does the trick. If this doesn't help at all then I do recommend replacing it with...

  • Lock to Secure Swagman XP Hitch Rack to Hitch Receiver

  • 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.

  • Lock Option for Swagman XC 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 # e98891. Run it through the bike frame and the safety chain loops that are on the hitch.
