Video Transcript for Swagman Accessories and Parts P186 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the replacement ratcheting hook set for Swagman XTC and XE Series bike racks. You can use this kit to replace the long and short ratcheting hooks or grip arms of your Swagman XTC or XC Series bike rack. It comes with one long ratcheting arm and one short ratcheting arm. It does include the mounting brackets for installing the arms on the upright mast of the bike rack. You can see here that you can push this and that's going to allow you to move it down or up.One of these push levers is located on each arm. Now these are designed to hold your bicycles in place during transport.

They're made from a steel construction with gray powder coat finishing, so it's not going to rust or corrode. It is lockable. You'll notice a small hole right here, which would prevent the lever from being functional. You can pass a padlock through there to prevent that lever from being able to be pushed down, and that adds a lockable feature to the unit, so it is lockable with a padlock. Padlocks are sold separately.

I would recommend using a padlock with a 3/16th-inch diameter shackle. And this set is designed for multiple bike racks, so I'm going to read off the model numbers for you real quick.This set will work for the S64664, S64670, S64665, S64663, S64650-EXT, and S64650. That's gonna do it for today's look at the replacement ratcheting hook set for the Swagman XTC and XC Series bike racks.

The Hook set to replace my 10+ year old lost ratcheting hook arrived much earlier than I expected. It turns out that the new design is a better design than the old ones. However, because of the deeply recessed location of the hitch on my odyssey and the styles of bikes I own, I can't use both of them on this car. However, until I change cars, I can function perfectly with one of the old hooks along with the replacement. I will deal with e-trailer again for my towing needs. 126173


I remain extremely satisfied with this product.

I lost one of my ratcheting clamps for my Swagman XTC bike carrier on a Sunday and none of my local bike shops had them in stock. A quick Google search located them at I ordered them on Monday morning and they were delivered to my door Tuesday afternoon. Great response time!! My carrier is an older model and did not come with a long and short clamp. I have noticed the need for such an improvement and these clamps are perfect. I will follow up after using them for a while but my first impression of is superb. I will check out your products and just might need something else. 407920

The product is as appears in the pic. in the advertisement on your web page. I have not had an opportunity to try them on the original vertical post, yet. The original shape of the hold-down clamps were different. This new design should center the bicyles on the rack better. I hope to try the fit of the new hold-downs on the vertical post in a few days. Your company shipped as scheduled and for the least expensive fee, per your website advertisement. Thank you, Mike V. W. 70504

The Swagman XC isn't a bad carrier for its price point. However, within probably six months, the rack had already begun to rust, the finish was oxidizing, two of the wheel loops wouldn't stay in place when the rack was folded (no matter how much I tightened them), and the hooks were really hard to slide up and down the vertical bar. It was also tricky to use when carrying two bikes at once, since mine have an unusual frame design. I'm not hard on equipment, taking the carrier off when not in use, and storing it in the garage. I've replaced it with a style of carrier that fits my bikes better. 357635

Being a first time buyer I was very pleased with the help in ordering, the good communication between the person taking my order making sure what I ordered was what I needed, explaining how delivery would work and made me feel important as a customer and not just another hurry up conversation during her day. The product itself is exactly as described in a perfect fit and finish. I now have a new functioning bike carrier instead of scrap metal. I couldn't be happier.with service at etrailer and the product they sold me. Thanks etrailer! 63247

I always purchase my trailer needs from etrailer. Their prices are great and the delivery time to Michigan is usually 1-2 days. I purchased these hooks as replacements to the "short" hook I lost. They are the same hooks that came with the Swagman XTC rack I purchased from etrailer a few months ago, so a product review isn't really needed for these items. However, these were packaged great and arrived in about two days so my downtime was minimal. 83513

Product was shipped the same day I ordered it. Customer service is excellent across the board and that's coming from a business owner in professional services. Quality of the swagman bike rack and hooks is second to none. Both mountain bikes don't move at all when driving. Pricing is the best on the market from the research I did. Great product, great price, awesome customer service. Kudos! Saved in my bookmarks! Thanks again! 216709

It was a pleasure doing business with Erika at etrailer. One of my hooks was stolen and I ordered a replacement set. At the time the item was out of stock and etrailer let me know right away and when they expected to have the parts available to ship to me. They kept me informed of the progress of the order which was very helpful. Excellent customer service. I would certainly order from etrailer again. 241494

The only reason I needed replacemenet parts was that I misplaced one of my bike hooks. This bike carrier is everything I expected. 52949

I've been very happy with my Swagman XTC bike carrier -- but recently ran over one of the hooks. Thought about trying to repair the item, but when I found the replacement hook(s) on a reasonable price, realized that it made more sense to just purchase it. Very happy with both the product and Shipping was very quick and communication with me even quicker. A+ 105816

I had to purchase replacements because I lost the originals that came with the rack. The replacements had a nicer feel on the ratcheting release over the original. the original had a flat thin bar that that you had to press for the release, this had a nice grip for release. The original was painted black and these were grey, that's something I can live with. 289536

I ordered two items from your company and two days later the package arrived at my home. I will continue to do business with etrailer. You feel like they are concerned about your needs. I have called them in the past inquiring about different items and they gave me the time to explain in full whatever I was asking about. Thank you. William 420214

I love the Swagman bike rack. But made an error of planning and drove the car over one of the ratchet arms. Service at was superb, with available parts, reasonable prices, and quick delivery options. Product delivered was exactly what was needed, so transporting bicycles is possible again. Many thanks. 391092

Was so glad to have found this piece at have ordered from them in the past and more than pleased with pricing and delivery. I have learned my lesson not to go through a car wash with my bike rack on ....:( (at least i was able to replace the damaged part and not have to buy the entire rack!) 49366

Worked perfect! We lost ours in the middle of camping and this is a direct replacement that worked like a charm. In addition to the product, John @ etrailer was very helpful in working with me and getting this shipped to my campsite quickly. Highly recommend both this site and this part if you need it 407417

The replacement part for my bike rack is just what I needed. I lost one of the rachet hooks, so could only carry one bike. Delivery time was great and arrived just on time for a planned bike ride. It would be great if we could only order one hook. Did not need two as only one was lost. 183481

I was one of the lucky ones as I put both ratchet brackets On the back of the hitch before I drove off so when I received both ratchets there was no need to put one In storage. Good Service and prompt delivery. Thank you Etrailers for saving the day! 120057

by: Jack T.06/17/2013

Obviously you are looking at this because you left one hook on your back bumper and drove away. These are identical to the original equipment on your Swagman rack. Good product, good customer service. Just buy it and get over the sting of regret. 85027

by: Nancy D06/27/2017

Interesting you should ask. Love the simplicity of the rack, but the replacement part doesn't fit as well, doesn'tt want to slide and has to be forced. Difficult for older lady to work. Praying it cooperates for tomorrow's ride far from home. 399759

The large & small hitch arrived very timely. I received an email from etrailer stating that I could track my package, which I did. George in customer service emailed me to let me know my package arrived. I would order from etrailer again. 262825

The hooks were delivered in a timely manner. I was missing the hooks from my bike rack. It's possible someone removed them because they had no locks to secure them. I would have preferred locks but maybe those wouldn't have fit my rack. 143986

These replacement hooks fit the original square bar perfectly, and are bent slightly more than the originals to center the bike and hold it away from the rack. Great price! 279748
