One of the bolts & cap on my hitch fell out. I thought this could take its place and provide security. It didn't work.


Comments
Which bike rack do you have? This replacement knob is for Swagman Original and XP Series bike carriers 2009 and newer. If you have a different rack, it might not work.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 09/26/2022


by:

It was not the correct knob. It wasn’t clear that this would not fit the roof rack. And it isn’t returnable so it was a total loss for me. I’ve been on a waiting list for the roof part and it never became available.


Comments

Did not fit my Swagman bike carrier

The 1040P replacement knob is compatible with Swagman Original and XP Series bike carriers 2009 and newer

by:

The only reason I am only giving it an average rating is that one knob locks and the other doesn’t. The one that works is great




by:

My lock, item number P1040. was picked and my $2,500 dollars Bicycle was stolen. The thief did not have any problems picking on the lock to steal my bike.




by:

I purchased two of these Swagman Locking Knobs to replace the two knobs (without locks) that came with my Swagman Original Bike Carrier. The price for what it is supposed to do seems fair. However, after just two uses the locking mechanism became problematic. Inserting the key(s) to engage the knob for unscrewing fails 90% of the time; on both knobs.
While on our last vacation, I was "finally" was able to free our bikes from the rack by inserting the key and holding it firmly in place while loosening the knob.
I'm an average size male who used reasonable pressure when securing the knobs, so I'm fairly sure it just needs to be engineered a bit better. Although less secure, I'm back to using the original knobs. Hopefully, this review will help those who may encountered the issue I'm experiencing.


Comments
Thank you for your review. Have you tried lubricating the lock cores? Also, I have noticed that if the screws below the lock core are over-torqued, it can be difficult to turn.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 07/08/2021


by:

The locking knob arrived promptly and works just like the description. Can't ask for much more than that.


Comments
I bought this locking knob to lock my solar panels into my roof channel and continuous to work great!

Was exactly what I wanted and exactly as described


Comments
While this is typically used to add a locking know to the Swagman Original and XP Series bicycle carriers 2009 and newer I see that you have found a another use for it.

Recently order two locking knobs for a Swagman Original bike rack (using it on a travel trailer). They are both keyed the same which works out perfect. One less key to carry. I will still be using an additional lock on the 5/8 inch securing hole provided. Arrived 2 days early! Thank you etrailer!




by:

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.


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.

by:

Arrived on time and works as stated!




by:

Great, working as it should.




by:

service and delivery were good. Neither of the two knobs threaded onto the posts completely, I had to run a tap thru both to finish cutting the threads.
Now they work fine.


Comments
We dont use the bike racks as much as I hoped, but everything is working fine.

Ordered 3 locking knobs for my swagman bike rack and they work perfectly! Order arrived quickly and was packaged carefully. I really appreciated the email from Carol at etrailer, notifying me that my items had been delivered and asking if I had any questions. Not only are the products great, but, the customer service at etrailer is exceptional.




by:

Great replacement knob.




by:

I knew the product would be good so this review is about the company etrailer.

YAY FOR Etrailer!! 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!!

Thanks to all of you at etrailer.

Oops, the weld at the mounting brace rusted through and broke off. I see Swagman doesnt make this model anymore.
G B - 08/30/2016


by:

Have not used this yet but it looks like it will match the one that is broken. Thanks.




by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

Made it easy to find the replacement parts needed for my bike rack. Quick delivery and great service through the process.


Comments
Still attached to my car and going strong! Great products and service!

by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

Worked perfectly on the original 2 ball mount #64095 from Swagman. I had no issues with the keys working and properly locking the knob in place. Was really happy with the service and shipping provided at etrailer.com.

Thanks!




by:

Thank you so much. After losing the key to my Swagman bike rack, I found out that I can buy accessories from etrailer.com. I'm so thankful for that. The product is the correct one.
