Video Transcript for Swagman Hitch Bike Racks P166 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the replacement ratcheting hook for the Swagman XTC, and XC series bike racks. This unit replaces one short ratcheting arm on your Swagman XTC or XC series bike rack. This is a direct replacement part. It includes the mounting bracket for your installation. And it installs on the upright mast of the bike rack.Once installed on the bike rack, it's design to hold your bikes in place during transport. Has a really nice, padded hook design, so that's going to protect the finishing on your bike.

To see all the bike rack models that this product will work for, you can view that list on the product page at etrailer.com. And then, just like the one that came standard on your bike rack, it has the push lever here, which allows you to control the up and down movement along the upright mast of the bike rack.And that is a ratcheting design, so when you push it down, it'll ratchet into place. And the way that you release it, is you press in on that, and then you can lift it up. That way you can remove the bike from the bike rack whenever you're ready. That's going to do it for the replacement ratcheting hook for the Swagman XTC and XC series bike racks..

I lost the short ratcheting hook on my Swagman bike rack. etrailer Had just the replacement item I needed. It arrived in a timely manner. Will order from etrailer again if the need arises. 529203

I was surprised to find this replacement part on etrailer but there it was priced very reasonably. I had been looking on Amazon and they only sold both the long and short Swagman Ratcheting Arms and they wanted about $76 for both of them. Add to that they were out of stock too. I ordered this replacement arm from etrailer.com and it was shipped promptly and at a very reasonable cost. I will always look first on etrailer.com when it comes to anything that can be hitched to my car/truck. 459143

Had purchased a trailer hitch model bike rake from disreputable company with " 4x4 " in its name. The smaller clamp arrived broken. This seller gave me the run around and no help. All I wanted was a new clamp. Ran across Etriailer on line looking for this part. Chuck with Etrailer was a total help in researching my questions for answers on this part. Ordered this and it is a perfect match for my LiteWay 2 model. Thank you for being a great customer based company. 617793

Nothing wrong with the hooks used to hold down the bikes. They work fine and the customer service obtaining this extra hook was excellent. The 1.25" hitch insert is really to small for this type of function. It allows to much rocking of the bicycles especially if you are hauling more than one. I'm adding a third hook in order to provide a better upper strap attachment point to stabilize the bicycles better when the road is rough. I am of the firm opinion that all bicycle racks mounted on a hitch insert should use the 2" insert instead of the 1.25". It is the only design that makes sense from a metal fatigue/engineering standpoint. 597017

I have the Swagman 4 bike carrier and love it. Really great for our family. we have 4 mountain bikes and the rack is perfect. I purchased a new replacement hook to replace a longer one and Etrailer shipped right away. Thanks for the quick ship, great price, first class packing job, and super customer service. 592504

My friend left one of these ratchet hooks loose on the trailer and drove off and lost it. It's so critical to make the bike rack work nicely, and it was available from your site at a reasonable cost. I ordered one and we had it in time for the next bike trip the next weekend. Yay. Thanks. 588434

I have no issues with the product. The arm holds the bike frame tight as long as it's pressed down well and is soft enough to not damage the frame. 568041

Part fit perfectly. What I was most impressed with was the customer Service person, Madison. She gave her contact information in case I had any questions. When one part was not available at the warehouse she let me know via email. I called with a question and within a short time she returned my call with my answer and the part I really needed she got out and it came within two days. She was pleasant, easy to work with. I will definitely buy from etrailer again. Thanks Madison. 541563

Lost one of these for my Swagman bike rack and found a very reasonably priced replacement on etrailer.com. It came within a week and fit perfectly -- actually works better than the original because its pushbutton is smooth plastic and is easier to depress. 384359

Its a very functional system. Unfortunately I tend to take the hooks of f and lose them. Ive also bent two of the feet and lost one of the bolts that attaches the feet to the rail. Looks like you will get more of my business soon. -

I'd lost the short Ratcheting Hook for my Swagman XC Series 2 Bike Carrier preventing me from transporting 2 bikes. I was able to locate a new replacement hook from etrailer.com quickly and for a reasonable price! Identifying and ordering the right part from their schematics was easy. I received a shipment email notice the next day and the hook arrived 4 days later, Everything transpired as expected or better. From my experience I recommend etrailer.com! 279343

This bike rack system is as easy as it gets when traveling with hikes. The rack and hooks are very strong and I never feel like I'm in danger of losing a bike . I was totally satisfied with my rack and would buy another one if I lost mine. 276350

Great to finally receive the replacement hook for my bike rack. For some reason it was back ordered from the factory for months but etrailer continually kept me notified throughout with updates. I got the feeling they felt it was their fault but it was out of their control. Would definitely do business with them in the future. Outstanding customer service. 252982
