Upgraded my older Thule T2 Classic with the new arms (752-1272-001) so that my 29x2.6 wheels would fit securely. The upgraded arms installed easily, and my larger wheels now fit as intended. I also installed the lock cores (TH450400) so that I could use the arm locking mechanism and the included arm cable lock (there are two separate lock cores per arm). Super easy install. 655711

Just what i needed to convert my t2 classic to fit my fatboy 26x4.6" tires. It doesnt include hook, bracket, hardware (must reuse this, which i think is rediculous). I also grd off the cable lock on end and replaced with cap from old arm. Now it matches my other arm. etrailer has great price and FAST ship. Recommended. 480341

Shipped promptly and worked as advertised. I took the old locks off my broken unit and put them on the new unit using the master key I had. 479297

Great product at great price!... made my aging bike rack better than new. I can now carry 29ers and fat bikes without any issues. 529844

This replacement arm is a couple of inches longer than my older ratchet arms and is a must have when carrying a fat bike on the rack. It will work well when combined with the new fat bike trays but is a very tight fit with bikes that have the new Bluto suspension fork. It appears the fork and arm will rub on each other during transport. I believe this arm will work when I put 29+ wheels and tires on my fat bike as well. New nuts and bolts with the arm would be nice. 171157

Everything exactly as I expected. High quality product and service. I bought a new bike with 29" wheels and didn't realize that the larger wheels didn't fit in the older rack arms as well. Noticed I had a problem when bike fell over in rack while I was driving on freeway! Fortunately bike didn't fall out of rack so it wasn't damaged but I new I had to do something fast before I had a bigger problem. Would highly recommend eTrailer for all like transactions. 168828

This arm is the perfect replacement for the original Thule T2 to add extended length for 29" wheels. It also adds the locking mechanism to keep honest people honest. etrailer.com has once again come through with exceptional service getting this items shipped right away as well as keeping me informed with communication emails on the order and shipping. etrailer is a company all online companies should model their customer service after...they are that good at what they do! 106762

Perfect fit for my older Thule T2 Rack. I recently got a 9er Mt. Bike to add to the collection and realized my T2 rack was old enough that it was made before 29 inch bikes where popular... So the arm was not long enough to go over the 29 inch wheel. The ability to buy just this part is great, rather than having to buy a completely new rack. Install time was about 5 minutes tops. Simply unscrew the tire hook from the old arm and place it on the new arm. Two allen head bolts connect it to the rack and your done. Very quick shipping as well. Thanks 213604

Have an old SportsWorks Rack and I love it... built out of steel and like a tank. The ratcheting arms were wearing out after a decade of use. These replacement arms were just what I needed! 215485

Hey Erich i was planning on also getting this part too for my sportworks t2 rack. Did you do any modification to make it fit the old rack?? Any info helps. Thanks in advance.Jeff

Second arm for the T2 I have purchased from etrailer.com. Happy with the service they provide. Product was required to allow older T2 to fit fat bikes. Works well with my rigid Specialized Fatboy. It doesn't work so well with a bike equipped with the Bluto fork. It rubs a bit with the arm on the left side of the fork. When the arm is on the right side of the fork it hits the head of the thru axle. You can get it around it with a bit of force, but it does take some paint with it. Still happy with the T2 and the replacement arms help extend its life. 224724

Works exactly as reported. Pretty easy to install, too. This ratcheting arm is about 1.5 inches longer than the previous version so it raises the support arm to allow clearance for fat 26 inch tires, or mid-fat 29ers. The old arm/ratchet system BARELY fit around a 45NRTH Dillinger 4.0 fat tire on a 26er, with pretty low pressure. I didn't account for the fact the new arm also has the integrated cable lock system, so I had to order 2 matching core locks to take advantage of that functionality. I already have the arm locks, but two locks are better than one. The pic is of a Niner ROS plus with 29x3.0 tires. Fits with room to spare. 230027

My Thule car hitch for bicycles let one of my bikes fall to the payment on a major highway. I was able to retrieve the bicycle and the part of the Thule that came apart. I contacted Thule for the replacement parts and the order was sent quickly. Unfortunately one of the parts was wrong. They quickly took responsiblity and got me the correct part within two days of my call. All of the people are very helpful, and it was evident that all they wanted to do is help. I would highly recommend them if you are in need of any part for your car. 612855

The quality of the product is well-made, and eTrailer service and pricing are excellent, however I can not recommend the Thule T2 Classic, or any version of this style bike carrier. After owning the T2 2-bike carrier, plus 2 bike extension for many years, the stress finally got to me, and I sold it to someone else. The problem with these style bike racks is the further from the hitch, the more each bump in the road is exaggerated, and the whole rack reacts like a diving board, to the point the furthest bike was “bounced” out of the tray several times on road trips. Also, a simple google search reveals the many ways these racks are easily defeated and don’t actually secure the bikes at all. I spent the money and bought a Recon Rack, which holds 6 bikes vertically, by the front wheel. Much larger rack, but more secure. Again, etrailer is great, and I will continue to shop with them, but I can’t recommend the Thule T2 Rack, or any parts for it. 587650

Exactly what I needed to carry my 29+ bike and my Fat Bike. Very easy to change out and I was able to sell my stock arms. I will likely purchase 2 more because I have the 2 bike add on. Cable lock is a nice feature. It wouldn't stop a pro but will slow an opportunistic thief. 555268

Someone backed into our Thule bike rack and damaged it. etrailer had the replacement part we needed -- it was shipped promptly and packaged well for shipping. The replacement part is from Thule and so it's a high quality perfect fit for our existing rack. 522375

E-trailer was a pleasurable shopping experience, initially bought the wrong parts and had no problem with the exchange process. Great customer service with better than average product knowledge. Don’t waste your time at REI or the like. E-trailer will be my go-to from now on. 490145

The clamp was vandalized during a probable attempted theft mid vacation. I had the newer cable style lock delivered express by etrailer.com. It arrived a business day ahead of schedule well packed. It was quickly installed and fit my Thule classic platform style as expected. I discovered that the key cylinder could be removed from the old style track lock and inserted into the cable lock, so I could retain my old keys for the time being and continue with the planned trip. Thanks for the great service. 476504

Our old (~2007) T2 rack was starting to show wear, and never really worked that well for bigger 29er tires (was a struggle to get the arm over the tire, and the ratchet arm just barely locked). This upgrade was very easy to install, and works great (~1-1.5 inches of extra clearance). Would definitely recommend. 456768

This replacement worked perfectly on my Thule T2 hitch rack. A light pole unfortunately snuck up and ran into my rack damaging the ratchet arm. Found the replacement part with ease on etrailer's web site. Shipping was super fast and the installation took literally minutes. Saved the expense buying a new rack. 431765

I got arm assembly to squeeze some more life out of an old Sportworks rack. The rack was purchased by a family member in 2004. Amazingly, this part fits perfectly on the old rack. Thule knew a good design when they saw it and didn't change a thing for the ratchet arm assembly. The old mounting hardware mated perfectly with the new part. The old arm is still in great working order, however I needed extra length for the larger diameter 29er wheels I now ride. The price was great and worth the gamble to extend some life on a classic hitch rack. Note-you get exactly what is shown and mentioned in the part listing. If you need extra mounting hardware, a replacement hook or cylinder core locks, you'll have to order those separately. 430516

Replace shorter hold down arm on my Thule T2 rack with this longer one for 29" wheels. Works great but subject to the same issue that my shorter arms have - this is difficulty getting the button to release properly - often times you have to pry it up 387324

Great upgrade for my 2007 T2. Works with the 29 inch wheels too now. Should have also ordered the cylinder locks. I will order them this week too. It is an excellent bike rack. Would highly recommend. Carries bikes safely. 375003

The only thing keeping this from being five stars, it should come with the lock removal key so you can put the lock from the old unit into the new unit, other than that ?? 348764

This arm replaced the old / shorter arm on my T2 hitch bike rack and allows me to carry my 29er mountain bike with 2.3 wide tires. The arm also has integrated cables. This means I now have to order lock cores to use this feature. Installation is simple and took around 30 minutes. 321485

Bought this arm and the Thule Fatbike base. They both work great for Fatbikes even with 4.8" tires like mine. The base and arm are still great for hauling regular mountain bikes and road bikes. 171190
