Video Transcript for Swagman Platform Bike Racks Wheel Cradle Knob and Bolt Replacement Review

Hey, there Swagman owners. Today, we're going to be taking a look at a replacement knob and bolt for the wheel cradles on your Swagman bike rack. As you can see here, I'm missing the knob on my bike rack. Today, I've got my XC bike rack, but this is going to also be an excellent replacement for your XTC, your XTC2, your XTC2 Tilt, XTC Quad, even your G2 bike racks.When you assembled your bike rack, you probably noticed that the knobs we're completely removable, which makes them unfortunately, losable. If you've lost your knob, you can still position your wheel cradles, but you can't secure them in place, and therefore you can't properly secure your bike. That can be a real bummer, but don't get a new bike rack.

Just get a new bolt and knob.It comes with two different size bolts depending on your bike rack. The larger one is your XC series bike racks. The smaller one is for the rest, and it's literally just a direct replacement. Once you get it in place, you can tighten it down, and that's going to take your cradle from movable to secure just by getting this tight to get you back on the road, so you can go out and enjoy the trails. Keep your bike rack in good working order.

That completes our look at the replacement knob and bolt for your Swagman bike rack.

I have an old Q-Slot bike carrier in which the fasteners all broke so I tried these to replace the fasteners and they fit and work perfectly. No need to buy a new carrier at all.

I needed a few replacement parts for normal wear on my Swagman Dispatch bike rack. etrailer had the parts and made it easy to find on the website. The price was competitive with any other sites I researched. The parts arrived promptly and were just what I needed. Thank you etrailer.

Took several MONTHS before I received my package. Shouldn’t have to take that long in todays day and age. However, the support staff was good to keep me updated on my order.

Can you tell me if this is a 516 bolt? I have a nashbar shadow2 hitch rack and the knob fell off somewhere. Im trying to replace it. If this knob will fit on a 5/16 bolt, this would be a perfect replacement. Thank you.

They are close. They are actually metric, M8-1.25 threads.

Needed these parts to keep my bike rack going, as the old ones wore out. They fit fine and worked as advertised for the last 12 months. I’m grateful that etrailer is willing to supply items like this.

I recently ordered a new part for my bicycle rack from etrailer and it was shipped in less than an hour from the time I ordered it. Wow ! I’m also happy with the other products they offer for a good price to. Quality products and quality service. Thank you !

Easy transaction. Went to install the part on my bike rack & realized that another part was missing from my rack due to not having the screw in. So I'll be ordering more parts from Etrailer.

Not much to say - glad etrailer had these replacement knobs - hardware stores don't carry them. Perfect replacement and reasonably priced.

This 4-pronged bolt thing is far better than the original 3-pronged for 2 reasons. First, the threaded metal insert is recessed into the black plastic allowing for a tighter grip on the bolt (the metal insert for the original design is flush and, it appears that, the screw runs out of threaded sleave before the hoop is completely tightened. Second, the 4-prong fits the hand more naturally. I reused the original flat washer. As an aside, you might be able to snug the original design enough by using 2 or more flat washers so that there are more threads to work with (same effect of recessing the metal sleave).

Part replacement for my bike rack. Arrived quickly and exactly as pictured!

This makes adjustments for different size and positions so much easier than the bolt and nut I used as a substitute!!

I'm very happy with with this purchase and I'm having no problem with the product

It replaced the original one that had damaged screw hole threads and wouldn't tighten up, no matter how many times you would turn the knob. Easy fix

I'm not sure why, but 4-tang knobs are infinitely better than 3-tang knobs.

Still perfect!
