Video Transcript for Thule Hitch Bike Racks 752-0947-001 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the replacement cradle strap assembly for the Thule helium bike racks. This fits the Thule helium bike racks model numbers TH970, TH970XT, TH971, and TH971XT. It replaces one cradle strap for your bike rack, and it is a direct replacement so it matches exactly what came standard on your bike rack.This strap is designed to secure your bike to the rack safely and securely. So, we have the multi hole design right here, which goes over the framing of your bike, and secures to the anchor point on the other side. It is a rubber-like material, so it is stretchable. That way you can stretch it over the frame of your bike for a nice tight, secure hold.That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement cradle strap assembly for the Thule helium bike racks..

Works as advertized. The help video was huge. It would have been hard to figure out otherwise. Don't remove the cradle! Just slip the rubber parts off and on. 318822

Straps. As pictured. Although not the same part number - not etrailer's fault, Thule racks are hard to identify once the serial number sticker is gone - they are just like the old ones, fit the same and like new. Good product at a good price. 699230

Good price for Thule helium hitch straps, better than elsewhere online. Rapid delivery. What more can you ask? The new straps are less supple and thicker than the original making them harder to strap onto the bikes. Probably more durable. 648102

When I needed replacement rubber straps for my Thule bike rack , I found the necessary straps right away at etrailer.com and bought four of them. I was happy to receive them and I immediately installed them on the rack. They seem to be constructed exactly like the original straps, and they do the job perfectly. I'm very pleased with their quality and the fact that I received them very quickly. 558644

The Thule replacement straps are good quality and possibly seem more durable than the original. I was grateful for the video on etrailier that described how to get these on without removing the security cable which would be very difficult on the Thule Helium rack 556028

I've ordered from you company many times. Why? You usually have what I want at a good price. Reasonable shipping costs. Quick service, quick feedback. I honestly feel that you care about your customers. 543610

Thule bike rack straps don't last forever, especially when a hitch-mount rack is left down while you're walking your dog after having let him out the back hatch, leaving the straps bearing the weight of the suspended bikes. I was happy to locate these replacements, which appear to be identical to the originals. There are good online video how-to's showing that replacing broken straps is possible. It takes a bit of stretching and maneuvering, but they go on. I'm confident that these replacements will last a lot longer with my new habit of raising the bike rack back upright, so the straps don't bear the weight of suspended bikes for extended periods! 526531


Comments
If you leave the straps sitting in the sun on a dark surface for an hour or two, the straps become much more pliable and easier to install.

Had to replace worn cradle straps on Thule 971. Straps came in one week and there was also a video on how to do the job. I have ordered 4 more straps as I cancelled my order from a local rack dealer, order placed 5 weeks ago. Thanks for the great customer service in a time when it is a rarity. 486716

  • Thule Helium Bike Rack Replacement Straps and Hitch Adapter
    You should be able to find the serial number of your Thule Helium bike rack on a sticker that is usually on the lower part of the rack, but it's possible that it could have come off after some time. The 2" adapter for the Thule Helium Aero for 2 or 3 bikes is # TH8523185001 and allows you to use the Helium with the 1-1/4" shank in a 2" hitch receiver. The Replacement Cradle Strap Assembly for the Helium is # 752-0947-001 and works with any Thule bike rack that used the Stay-Put Cradle...

  • How To Replace Cradle Strap on Thule Helium Bike Carrier
    This question has come up before and I made a video showing how you would replace strap # 752-0947-001 on an actual bike carrier. I have developed an alternate method for replacing the strap without removing the cradle or taking off the end cap and cable lock. I have also included a helpful link to another answer I did that has the video I mentioned.

  • Getting Frame Cradles Off of Thule Helium to Replace Straps
    There's going to be a rivet on the end of the bike rack arm that you are going to have to drill out to get the cradles off of the arms of your Thule Helium so you can replace the strap part # 752-0947-001 that you referenced. At one point they did switch to a screw instead so maybe you got lucky in that regard.

  • Replacement Frame Cradle Strap Recommendation for Thule Helium 971XT
    I checked with Thule and for your Thule Helium part # TH971XT that is no longer in production the correct strap is the part # 752-0947-001 that you referenced.

  • Are the Frame Cradles Replaceable on a Thule Helium Bike Rack
    Yes, the cradles on both sides of the arms of the Thule Helium Bike Racks can be replaced. You will want a Replacement Cradle Main Body # 853-7605. For replacement straps you could use the # 752-0947-001 that you referenced. If you have an older Thule Helium there is a chance that the cap at the end of the arm will be riveted on which will make removal difficult. Recently they switched to using a screw to attach the cap to the arm, hopefully this is the version you have. If you do...

  • Replacement Strap for a Thule Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Purchased in 2006
    In 2006 it was likely a Parkway but could have also been any number of bike racks. It is likely not # 752-0947-001 since it fit very few racks. The best way to figure out which strap you need is to measure the length of the strap, the number of holes, and the diameter of the holes. For example strap # 852-3006-001 is 8-3/4 inches long and has eight 1/2 inch diameter holes. This strap fits many discontinued Thule racks that used the Stay-Put cradle # 853-7887.

  • Thule Parkway Anti-sway Strap Recommendation Replacement
    We do carry the # 852-3006-001 that you referenced. If you follow the linked text or the link below you will be taken to the product page where you can order this strap. Either strap should work well, but if you want an exact replacement for what you have you would want the # 852-3006-001 instead of the # 853-5834.

  • Replacement Cradle For Thule 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
    Thule stopped making the cradles with the integrated strap because they found the cradles were still good when the straps were broken so they separated them to help customers. I recommend the the Replacement Cradle Main Body for Thule Helium Bike Carriers # 853-7605 along with the Replacement Cradle Strap Assembly for Thule Helium Bike Carrier # 752-0947-001. I've attached a link to all your cradle options for Thule bike carriers.

  • Does the Cradle have to be Removed on a Thule Helium Bike Rack to Replace the Strap
    Since one end of the strap is around the arm you could always use some snips and needle nose pliers, stretch the strap and then snip it free from the cradle. However, to replace the strap with # 752-0947-001 you would need to pull off the cradle anyway. However, I have developed an alternate method for replacing the strap without removing the cradle or taking off the end cap and cable lock. I made a video showing how this can be accomplished.

  • Removing End Caps of Older Thule Helium to Replace Frame Cradles
    If you have an older Thule Helium (sounds like you do) there is a chance that the cap at the end of the arm will be riveted on which will make removal difficult. Recently they switched to using a screw to attach the cap to the arm, hopefully this is the version you have. If you do have a rivet you can drill the rivet out and use a rivet gun to reinstall the cap once you replace the cradle, or you can send the arms of your rack to Thule and let them replace it. You will want a Replacement...

  • Will Thule T3 Bike Carrier Cradle 853-5829 Fit Thule Helium 3 Carrier
    Thule part # 853-7605 is the correct replacement Cradle Main Body for their Helium bike carrier; it works along with mating strap # 752-0947-001. The T3 rack replacement cradle # 853-5829 and the mating strap # 753-3535 will not fit on the rack as the tubing on the Helium is 1-1/2-inches in diameter. I confirmed this with my contact at Thule.

  • Using a Cradle from a Different Manufacturer on a Kuat Beta Bike Rack
    It is possible that a cradle from a different manufacturer will fit your Kuat Beta bike rack. The arms on that rack have a 1-1/2 inch diameter. Thule cradle # 853-7605 will fit that size arm. The strap for this cradle is # 752-0947-001.
