Video Transcript for Thule EasyFold XT Electric Bike Rack Short Arm Assembly Review

Hey, everybody, welcome to etrailer.com. I'm Bobby and today we're taking a look at the short arm assembly replacement part for your Thule EasyFold XT bike carrier. So, it's gonna be a pretty straightforward way of making sure that if you do find yourself damaging or otherwise your arm isn't quite working how we need it to, we can quickly get it replaced. That way, we can start using our EasyFold once again. So, really straightforward design here of how we can get these in place. Let's go ahead and start taking a look of how we can get it installed.

The one little caveat I'll give you though, there are gonna be a little more necessary steps to make sure that our locking cores are actually ready to be utilized. And what I mean by that is your locking core here is gonna be different than what you might have on your EasyFold. So, it may require you to make a secondary purchase here for the locking core and the master control key to actually start getting them exchanged. Other than that though, it's gonna be a pretty straightforward install. Let's go ahead and see how we get our new arm in place.

So starting on our old arm here to actually take it off, what we need to do, we just need to unlock it. Spin it lefty loosey. That's gonna give us the necessary room we need to pull that up. And as you can see, that simply undoes that hold right there. And that release allows us to take it off of our post.

With our new one in hand, we simply take it once again, back it off to where I can open this up. Just like so and then I can simply set that on my arm. You can see where it fits within the hole. Open it again, latch it down and just like that we're installed. Otherwise, all we have to do tighten this up.

And like I said, I think the big worry for us at home is making sure that we have the correct locking core on here, that way we can actually keep everything keyed alike. Now, can you have separate locks on here Yeah, but that's one more key to keep track of on your key ring. I'm sure it'll be pretty annoying finding which one is right all the time. In my mind, I think a lot of us are gonna go for that convenience of having it keyed alike. albeit that can take just a little bit more work on our end. But other than that though, once we get that locking core in place, it's ready to rock and roll. Now we can start utilizing our EasyFold, just like we we're before. That way, we can start having some fun on those trails which is great. So, really like how simple this is to actually get fixed and get replaced. If you have an issue with your arm, hopefully now it's replaced. We can start having a good time. Otherwise though, I think that about does it for our look here today at the small arm replacement assembly here for your Thule EasyFold XT bike carriers here at etrailer.com. I'm Bobby, thanks for watching..

Threads seized on original Short Arm that came on Thule EasyFold XT. I hope it was a one time thing, holding my breath.



by:

This replacement arm worked perfectly. It is expensive and comes without the cylinder locks. It would have been better if I knew that it came without the cylinder when I ordered it. Then I found out that etrailer didn’t stock the cylinder I needed. If they did I would have given them a 5-star rating.



by:

I think in the notes about this product it should have stated that the lock does not come with it. And that you would have to purchase a key to remove the lock from your old part to put into the new part.



by:

Forgot to tighten my old one and it fell off. This is a direct replacement. A bit pricey but entrails r was the only one that had it available now.



by:

i was able to get the replacement arm and have it custom-keyed to match my other arm, Thank You etrailer



by:

When I received my replacement short arm assembly for my Thule bike rack it did not come with the keys for the locking mechanism - key hole present - no keys to prevent my bike from being stolen ! When I called to ask about the keys I was told that for $28.00 I could get a cylinder with keys ! For $ 70.00 I should have been given keys for this - it’s essentially worthless ! Great job guys !

As shown in the product photos, Thule unfortunately doesnt include the lock cylinder and key with the replacement arm. The existing cylinder can be removed from the old arm and added to the replacement using the Thule # 853-1251 change key.



by:

The short arm was exactly what we needed for our bike rack.



by:

I succeeded in losing this arm from my THule rack. It was out of stock at Thule. I was glad to find it on e-trailer.



by:

Exactly what ordered, very fast shipment.
I appreciate the quality and service I consistently receive from e-tailer.
Thanks, Again.



by:

Needed a replacement part for our trailer. Ordered and it was shipped out quickly! Thank you E trailer – as usual, always appreciated!



by:

These are what they are. Mostly plastic and mine arrived from another company and was broke. etrailer had them in stock and got it to me in just a couple days. I am not impressed with the quality of Thule products.



by:

Very quick and very very helpful!!!



by:

Product arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Communication from vendor regarding the order was excellent! Will use them again for sure.



by:

The assembly does not come with a lock assembly pre-installed in it. It is intended that you would transfer the lock core from the old arm to the new one or you can purchase a new lock core for the assembly if needed. You would just need to know the core number from the other lock cores installed on the bike rack.



by:

Great customer support and quick delive ry.

  • Does A Lock Core Need To Be In The Replacement Long Arm Assembly For Thule EasyFold For It To Work?
    Yes, you are going to need to make sure that there is a lock core in the Replacement Long Arm Assembly for Thule EasyFold XT Electric Bike Rack # 1500052414 for it to work properly. If after you put the lock core in and the arm still is not functioning as intended, then you may just have a damaged part and will need to just simply replace the arm. I have attached a review/installation video for you to check out as well.

  • Length of Long and Short Replacement Arms of Thule Easy Fold XT Bike Rack
    I checked with Thule and the distance from where it attaches to the bike frame and the center of where it attaches to the bike frame of the longer arm part # 1500052414 measures 13-1/2 inches and on the shorter arm # 7525491002 measures 4-1/2 inches.

  • Will the Replacement Short Arm # 7525491002 Fit On My Non-Thule Bike Rack?
    I reached out to Thule and they said that even though they cannot confirm for sure whether the Replacement Short Arm Assembly for Thule EasyFold XT Electric Bike Rack # 7525491002 will fit your non-Thule rack, there is a way for you to confirm the fitment. My tech at Thule measured the mast bars of the Thule Easyfold XT # TH903202, and that measurement is about 3-3/4 inches in circumference. To make sure that the short arm assembly fits your rack, I recommend taking a measuring tape and...

    The Replacement Bike Clamp Assembly for Thule Raceway Bike Racks # 7521537001 is actually designed to fit the Thule Raceway bike racks, and will not work with the Thule EasyFold XT Bike Rack # TH903202. Instead, you'll want to check out the: -Replacement Long Arm Assembly for Thule EasyFold XT Electric Bike Rack # 1500052414 for a replacement long arm assembly, or the Replacement Short Arm Assembly for Thule EasyFold XT Electric Bike Rack # 7525491002 for the replacement short arm assembly.

  • What Replacement Long-Arm Knob Fits My Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202?
    I have an answer for you about a replacement knob on your Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202. Thule does not make just the knob on the long arm assembly to purchase. With that being said, you need to purchase the entire assembly as part # 1500052414. It is important to note that this does not come with lock cores. You can, however, use your current core as long as you can unlock your current knob and have the Universal Change Key for Thule One Key Locks # 853-1251.

  • Troubleshooting Thule EasyFold XT Bike Rack Bike Holders Not Locking With Key
    I reached out to Thule for additional help with your EasyFold XT Bike Rack # TH903202. They recommended using the Universal Change Key # 853-1251 to remove the lock cylinder and ensure there is no damage in the handle and that it is properly aligned in the slot with no debris that would cause a malfunction. If you find they are damaged or you can still not get them to work, we do have the Short Arm # 7525491002 and Long Arm # 1500052414 assemblies available.

  • How to Fit Thule EasyFold XT Clamping Arm with Odd-Shaped Bike Frame
    Thank you for all of the details! One of the strengths of the Thule EasyFold XT Bike Rack # TH903202 are the clamping arms that can be moved individually, but sometimes that can be a weakness like what you're seeing in your situation. For your application I recommend using the Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT so you have a standard-sized top tube that the clamp can easily attach to. This bar will fit around the handlebar and seat posts so you have a little freedom of movement on where...
