Product is great. The rubber wears out over time, but I've had it for over 15 years, so that can be expected. Easy to order the replacement parts. 756878

You can trust etrailer to provide you a quality product an a reasonable price in a reasonable time. I just bought the Swagman bike rack cradle-cover, Item: P161. It is THE original!!! It came in a few days as promised. BTW, I looked{a different webside} online too. Could not buy just the cover. Had to buy the whole cradle, cover and rack mount clamps. AND their price was over $70. Thank you, etrailer for your excellent products, service and timely shipping. 634551

I lost a couple of these off of a prior generation bike rack. These replacement parts fit perfectly. They were exactly what I needed. Easy to find on the website. Delivery was fast. I’m completely satisfied. 578133

I bought two of these as a replacement for one, in which after years of frequent use, the vinyl under surface separated from the metal upper surface. i also bought another to replace one I lost. Prompt delivery from etailer.com. The mailing package could be sturdier since two of these in one package were slightly heavy and there are several edges. The package arrived open but the contents were intact. These are used on a Swagman bike rack which has locks to secure the rack and a lock to secure the bikes. 518057

What I expected after reading the reviews. The steel is a little thicker then the original. It takes a little back & forth to get it in. I might have to grind a bit off to make it go in easier. 432791

Didn't quite fit my older model and there was not option to find and buy the correct piece. I did get it to work by grinding and bending it a bit so it's better than nothing. This is a manufacturer issue and is no reflection on etrailer.com 383594

Part is reasonably priced and fits my rack. Unfortunately with the design of this rack I have twice left this part just sitting on the rack and drove off. The part ended up on the ground and lost. But thanks to this site you can get a replacement with no problem:) I completely suggest it! 315591

It is working just fine. Still holds my bikes in place and so far I have gotten a little better at remembering to secure the plates when I take the bikes off to keep from losing them. Nice to know that I can certainly get a replacement when needed though!
