Video Transcript for Thule Hitch Bike Racks 753-3535 Review

Today we're going to review part number 753-35-35. This is the Thule Replacement Rubber Strap for the Thule Bike Racks that use the T3 Cradles. Now this strap is used to hold down your bike to the bike rack cradle. This rubber strap replaces a lost or damaged strapped on your Thule Bike Carrier that uses the T3 Cradles. You can see on this one end of the strap it does have a hard plastic attachment to it. Now the Bottle Bike Racks with the T3 Cradles are the Thule Ridgeline, The Roadway, The Revolver, and the Spare-Me Bike Racks.

This part in quantity is for one strap. If you notice it has the six holes right here, the round holes, and the measurement on those holes center to center is 1 inch. Total length, let's see if I can get you a total length on this from the very tip to the very tip. It's going to be right at 10-1/2 inches. The diameter of the smaller holes are 1/2-inch and this one big large on the end is about 1-1/2 inches. That should do it for the review on part number 753-35-35.

This is the Thule replacement Rubber Strap for Thule Bike Racks with the T3 Cradles.

Thule no longer makes the same type of cradle and strap for my bike carrier and this model is the recommended replacement. The cradle is a very tight fit and I don't think that it will be as easy to adjust as the original part. The strap seems fine and if it breaks I can replace the strap separately unlike the original part. I looked for this on Amazon, eBay, and the other usual suspects and e-trailer had the best combination of price & shipping. 188503

I ordered the replacement rubber straps for our Thule bike rack that is mounted on the back of our Jeep Liberty. My husband replaced the old worn straps with the new ones in no time at all and was extremely pleased with the replacement straps. 426820

by:

The replacement cradles and straps I received have really made my old rack look like new again. They were simple to install, too. Only took me about 10 minutes to install eight new replacement cradles and straps. 561467



- 753-3535
by:

Replaced my inexpensive bike rack cradles with the Thule cradles and straps and am really happy. They are much stronger and easier to strap in the bike than the Velcro straps that came with the carrier. The rack is 1" tubing and it fits fine. 640068

by:

Very well made. The only thing that you need to know if you buy this for the Harbor Freight bike rack is that you also need to purchase the Thule T3 cradle to go with it. 580156

I was fortunate to find exact replacement hardware for my Hitch Style Bike Rack. The old hardware needed replacement to hold the Bikes securely. Your customer service was very helpful in helping me find the correct items. Thank you so much! 639197

Installed the spare parts today. Excellent results. I had an old Bell Bike Rack with broken clips and replaced them with these. Perfect fit, a very nice upgrade. You definitely have to use soap to get them on the bar (unless you're a masochist). 94597

etrailer sells several straps for bike racks and I found the one I needed by matching their website picture to my broken strap. Received the strap and worked perfectly. 698051

I had left my old Thule Spare Me rack on my car for a long time (years) without using it and the straps had dry rotted. These were the exact right ones and they arrived quickly. Now I am all set to carry my new bike. 695700

Item was the replacement for an older part. Worked worked (and looks) better than the original. Will get a few years of service and will rebuy when it wears out. Not much you can do about that being in the sun and weather. 690187

by:

I ordered replacement straps for my Thule bicycle carrier (one of them ripped due to use -- decided to order two as a preventative measure). It took me a bit to find these online. The parts arrived well-packaged (they are rubber so no issue with breakage anyway) and are now installed. I'll order parts from etrailer.com again in the future. 681577

by:

When a few of the straps on my Thule bike rack broke, I decided it was probably time to replace them all. These straps were great and my back rack looks like new. You can't put a price on having confidence that you bikes are secure on your rack when you travel. 663408

As expected 549752



- 753-3535
by:

All the original rubber straps on my Thule Expressway 995 bike rack broke or were about to break. Plus they always slid downhill towards the front of the vehicle while driving. Those parts unfortunately are no longer made and have been replaced by the 753-3535 and 8535829 straps and cradles. I ordered these parts and they came in a timely manner. I had to drill out the pop rivet for the locking cable on the rack (no big deal - high security!) and everything came apart easy. I had to use a paper towel with a little bit of dish detergent and rub it on the rack pipes as the new parts fit very tight - watch the video on this. However, since they are tight, the bikes no longer move around while driving - Hooray! Put a pop rivet back in for theft prevention, at least the dirt bag would need more than a Phillips screwdriver to get the locking cable off. Overall a great product & service. 549244



- 753-3535
by:

Fits on my Thule trunk rack just fine. Looks great. Quick shipping and good communication from the seller. 548885



- 753-3535
by:

Fit perfectly. Simply use a screwdriver to take off end cap on rack, then use soapy water to help slide cradles off before easily installing new strap. 547474

Long story short, this was not the correct part, but that was totally my fault. I ordered straps for the wrong make of Thule bike rack. I returned, with no problem and ordered the correct straps. They have come and fit great!!! Customer service is Great!!, you talk with a human and they are very helpful and knowledgeable. I will continue to do business with Etrailer.com and recommend them to all. 528984

  • Replacement Cradles for Thule Hitching Post 4-Bike Rack
  • There are currently several different Thule Hitching Post 4-Bike Racks (980, 944, 945, 984, 985, 934, 934 XT, 935, 935XT, Etc.) so it would be a bit difficult to confirm the correct replacement parts without the exact model. If you don't know what model you have then you can try sending a photo and I can go about trying to identify it that way. However, the Replacement T3 Cradle Body part # 853-5829 and the Replacement Rubber Strap part # 753-3535 will work for all but the 980, 984,...

  • Replacement Cradle Strap For Older Thule Bike Carrier
  • I called Thule and asked about the strap that has 5 square holes for your bike rack. They told me the strap has been discontinued. They said the cradle would need to be replaced and then a different strap can be used with the new cradle. The cradle they said that can be used is part # 853-5829. The strap that will work with this cradle is part # 753-3535. We have another option for you. If you measure the hole size and the distance between the holes we may have a strap that will work...

  • Installation of Thule Rubber Straps for T3 Bike Rack Cradles
  • If the cap at the end of the bike rack arm has a rivet instead of a screw to hold it on (check on the bottom of the arm) then you will not be able to remove it. But what you can do to get strap # 753-3535 installed is essentially stretch it out enough to go over everything, including the cradle. I have actually done this myself and made a video of it. You basically have to work it on there by stretching and moving it as you go. The matching cradle on the other hand, # 853-5829, would...

  • What Type of Bolt Is Used on End Caps of Thule Bike Rack
  • What you are describing is a Torx security bolt. The center section is put in there so you can't just use a screwdriver to remove the bolt. Thule sells the needed tool as part # 853-3496.

  • How to Attach the Thule T3 Cradle and Strap
  • It looks like you purchased the Thule T3 Cradle, # 853-5829, and the T3 Strap, # 753-3535. These two items should work well together so I made a short demonstration video for you. If you think you may have received a different strap or are missing a part, let us know so we can send you the correct parts.

  • What Diameter Rack Tube will the Thule T3 Cradle Fit
  • As long as the arms of your bike rack are 1 inch in diameter the T3 cradle part # 853-5829 that you referenced would fit it. I couldn't find any info on a 946 rack, but this cradle will fit anything with a 1 inch diameter arm. For a replacement strap you would want the part # 753-3535.

  • Does Replacement Thule T3 Bike Rack Cradle Require More than One Strap
  • You will only need one strap, # 753-3535, per T3 cradle, # 853-5829. There are two knobs on just one side of this cradle. It allows you to secure the strap to either knob; whichever allows you to secure the bike the best.

  • Replacement Straps Needed for Thule Easy Rider 3 Bike Trunk Rack
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and the Easy Rider trunk mounted bike rack was discontinued back in 1995 so the replacement straps are no longer available but I do have a solution. You will just need to update your cradles by using the T3 Cradle Body, # 853-5829, and then use Rubber Strap, # 753-3535. These are sold individually so you would need 6 of each. A quick tip that we have found to work well when installing new cradles on a bike rack is to grab a can of aerosol hair spray....

  • How to Install the Thule Replacement Strap 753-3535 for Hanging Bike Racks
  • Installation of the T3 cradle replacement strap is pretty straight forward. You will need to remove the end cap from the end of the bike support arm, a Phillips screw typically holds the cap in place. Next use a small amount of soap and water to help the cradles, # 853-5829, slide off easily. Once you have the cradles off installation is just the reverse, orient the strap, cradle and anti sway bracket, if needed, together and then slide them on to the correct position.

For example, we carry Thule's replacement cradle # 853-5829 and matching strap # 753-3535 for their racks that have a 1-inch arm tube. They also offer cradle # 853-7887. You will want to...

  • Availability of Replacement Cradle Straps for Thule Helium 3-Bike Rack
  • Actually, the correct strap for your Thule Helium is less expensive than either of the straps you mentioned. If you have the older Thule Helium, part # TH971, it used a now discontinued strap, part number 853-5834. The newer Thule Helium Aero, part # TH9043 uses the # 852-3006-001 replacement strap. The good news is the # 852-3006-001 will also fit the older model.

The Hold Fast Cradle part # 853-7887 would also fit since it has the same diameter hole. For a strap you would need the part # 852-3006-001.

  • Replacement Straps and End Cap for a Thule Roadway Bike Rack TH912
  • You definitely have T3 cradles on your Thule bike rack, the correct replacement strap would be the Replacement Rubber Strap for Thule T3 Bike Carrier Cradles # 753-3535. I confirmed this with my rep at Thule. The replacement end cap that you would need would be the Replacement Tube Cap # 853-1477-04. This does not come with the set screw, but it will be available on our site very soon. It's part number will be # 853-5753.

  • Replacment Strap for Thule 946 Bike Rack
  • When reaching out to my contact at Thule, we confirmed that since the arms of your Thule 946 bike rack is 1 inch in diameter, the replacement strap that will fit is part # 753-3535. They will have a different appearance, so you may wish to replace all of the cradles and straps at one time.

  • How Wide is the Thule T3 Cradle Body
  • The Replacement T3 Cradle Body for Thule Bike Carriers # 853-5829 is 2-1/4 inches wide at the base but will support a frame over 2 inches without issue. The Replacement Rubber Strap for Thule T3 Bike Carrier Cradles # 753-3535 are 10-1/2 inches long so they will be more than long enough for whatever bike frame diameter you have.
