Video Transcript for Swagman Hitch Bike Racks P482 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the replacement strap for the Swagman Trailhead Bike Rack. This part number replaces one strap for the cradles on your Trailhead Bike Rack. The durable rubber construction is a nice strong design. It has an easy-grip tab right here so that we can grab on that, and you can stretch it over your bike frame and attach it to the stay-put point on the other side of the cradle.This is designed to secure your bike without damaging your bike frame in any way. The adjustable design fits bike frame tube sizes that may be a little bit different. That's a nice design, a lot of adjustability with the unit.

Overall length of the strap, edge to edge, gives us a measurement of 10 inches. Overall width measures 1 3/16 inches. Then the distance that we have on center between each adjustment slot measure 7/8 of an inch.That's gonna do it for today's look at the replacement strap for the Swagman Trailhead Bike Rack.

Replacement Strap for Swagman Trailhead Bike Carriers - 2009-Current - P482

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (16 Customer Reviews)

Instead of buying a whole new bicycle rack for our RV ladder, I found these straps to replace the worn out ones on the bicycle rack we now have. Saved some money. 579306

Looks the same in pictures but it's twice as thick and the holes are way to big expensive and doesn't work 419693

Rick,Thank you for your review. This straps are direct replacement parts for Swagman trailhead carriers produced from 2009 to 2017. If the straps did not work we would like to rectify this situation for you. I have contacted customer service to give you a call.

Great customer service. Somehow my order was short one item, they quickly apologized and sent the missing item out via FedEx to me. Very happy with the service. 693436

My first Swagman bike rack was a tie on. It sadly broke. However, Swagman upgraded my rack to a hitch rack for free. The hitch racks are incredible! 645068

Shipped fast, great foolow up when I was concerned the part might not fit, It was thr right part, just an updated version. Will likely shop here zgain 519591

It appears I did not order the proper strap for my bike carrier. The new straps are much thicker than the originals, which is great, but the holes are larger and will not stay on the pegs. 418368

I use my bike rack for my kids 4 bikes every time we take out the motorhome. A few of these straps broke and I was pleasantly surprised to find replacements on eTrailer at a great price. Thank you! 278376

Delivery was speedy. Price was good. They are just like the originals that I needed to replace. The Florida sun is brought on rubber parts. I will probably be ordering more when these wear out. 273289

- P482

this was a replacement for one that vanished from our bicycle rack. delivery was quick and price was fair. I am very pleased with the Swagman bicycle carrier. It is definitely equal or better in quality than the Thule at about 1/2 the cost. I enjoy doing business with etrailer. 247654

I've had great experience ordering from etrailer. My Swagman 4 bike platform hitch has rubber straps and after a few years in the hot arid desert of Phoenix I've had to replace a couple. Got my straps and ready to continue my rides...! 142442

  • Are Longer Straps Available to Carry a Wide Frame Bike on a Hanging Bike Rack
    Strap # P482 is the longest strap available at 9-1/2 inches long overall. But it may not fit your bike rack unless you happen to have a Swagman Trailhead rack. You might be able to use an adpater bar, # Y02531. The larger end that would attach to the seat post is 4-1/4 inches long by 2-1/8 inches wide. If that is large enough to fit around the seat post then the other end would clamp around the handlebar post and you would attach the bike rack straps to the adapter bar rather than around...

  • Bike Racks That Allow Cargo Area Access for 2013 Chevy Equinox
    The Reese # 63123 bike rack will indeed fit your 2013 Chevy Equinox. For Girls or Women's bikes, I highly recommend using an adapter bar like the reasonably priced # 64005. Carrying the bike in a tilted position could put stress on the Velcro straps that retain the bike to the rack. I'm not fond of bike racks that use the Velcro Type straps for frequent use or for long trips. I prefer the sturdy rubber straps used by the Swagman Trailhead, part # S63360. The Trailhead provides anti-sway...
