It did exactly what it needed to for my wife's car with a 1.25" receiver. We just swapped the trays over from our existing T2 rack. 4 stars, because if we were doing it over, I'd probably look at an aluminum 1-Up rack rather than a Thule T2. 783302

I purchased this backbone because my new car hitch is 1 1/4 in and my old bike Thule T2 was 2 inch. very happy now 517823

I have and have had a Thule T2 for use in a 2 in received for some time... it’s a great rack and I have no complaints. About a year ago, I bought the two bike add on, so I have great flexibility when it comes to carrying 1-4 bikes. I recently purchased a small car for out of town bike trips that has much better fuel economy than my big ol truck. The hitch has a 1 1/4 receiver as the only option. I considered purchasing another T2, but I already have a lot tied up in my racks and don’t need another complete one... I saw this item and I originally considered sealing the shank out for the one on my T2, but then I began to think that I might be able to “convert” my add on by simply swapping the bike trays over to this shank. Happy to report that it works perfectly, I don’t often need the addl 2 bike add on and when I do it’s usually something I plan in advance for (road trip with friends, etc). My plan is to now have a complete rack for a 2 in setup and a complete one for the 1 1/4 and then swap the trays over to the add on when needed. I will have to share the pin/lock between the two racks but I never use both at the same time. Bottom line, if you need to convert an existing 2 in setup or an add on (minus the pin, etc), this will work for you!! 485604

You are not going to find this part any place else. It was perfect. The previous owner of the Thule bike rack had drilled two holes in the hitch bar and compromised the integrity. Replacement was perfect and the bicycle rack was saved. Very Fast shipping and a very good price....Thanks again.. 313032
