Video Transcript for Review of Thule Replacement T2 Classic 1-1/4 Inch Backbone Assembly - 753370902

Hi there, I'm Michael with Etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a quick look, at this Thule replacement one, in a quarter inch hitch and backbone assembly, for your Thule T2 Classic two bike platform rack. This is going to replace the inch and a quarter hitch and backbone assembly. Needed to install your Thule T2 Classic, two-bike platform rack. And this can also be used, if you're wanting to convert your two inch assembly, for use in a inch and a quarter inch hitch. You can swap out the backbone and shank for your assembly.

That way you can use it in your engine a quarter. You can also then have an adapter, so, if you wanna switch back and forth, between an and a quarter and a two inch, there are adapters available that would allow you to make your two inch smaller, so that it would fit this inch and a quarter shank. But otherwise, this is gonna be an exact replacement, from Thule so you can trust it is gonna work with your T2 Classic. No worries about fit issues, or compatibility problems or anything like that. It's gonna retain all the same functionality, as your original, so you can tilt your bike rack away, if you're wanting to get into your rear hatch, and that sort of thing.

So it's gonna be a great option if you're needing to replace that original inch and a quarter inch backbone assembly, or if you're wanting to switch out, that two inch option so that you can use this for a wider variety of applications. That completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with Etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.

  • Solution for Needing Replacement 1-1/4 inch Shank for Thule T2 Classic

  • How To Use the Thule T2 Bike Rack 916XTR With 1-1/4 Inch Hitch
    In order to use the Thule T2 2 Bike Platform Rack part TH916XTR with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening you will need the Replacement 1-1/4" Hitch and Backbone Assembly part # 753370902. I know this is probably more than you were looking to spend but Thule does not make any sort of adapter for the Thule T2 2 Bike Platform Rack part TH916XTR to allow it to be used with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening aside from replacing the shank.

  • How To Use Thule T2 Classic TH9044 In Vehicles That Have 2 or 1-1/4 Receiver
    You are correct, you will want to replace the 2" shank on your Thule T2 Classic 2 Bike Rack # TH9044 with the Replacement 1-1/4" Hitch and Backbone Assembly # 753370902. This will allow you to use the rack in your vehicle with a 1-1/4" receiver, and also in your vehicle with a 2" receiver by using the 2" to 1-1/4" reducer # HT02. Using this reducer will not reduce the capacities of your 2" hitch, but if you kept the 2" shank and used a hitch expander on your 1-1/4" hitch your hitch would...

  • Using a 2" Thule T2 Classic Bike Rack With a 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver
    I do have a recommendation for you as Thule only offers the Replacement 1-1/4" Hitch and Backbone Assembly # 753370902 for changing your Thule T2 Classic 2" to a 1-1/4". You can use either a Straight Adapter # e43YR or Rise Adapter # HT5R to adapt your 1-1/4" hitch to carry the 2" bike rack. Do note that the adapter will reduce the tongue weight rating on your receiver by 50%. So if you have a tongue weight rating of 350lbs you will have to stay 175lbs or below for the adapter.

  • Adapter Needed To Carry Thule T2 917 Hitch Bike Rack In a 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver
    You can use our Adapter # e58YR to carry your Thule T2 917 bike rack in your 2" receiver. Thule does not have a specific adapter as they have the 917 Backbone # 753370902 for a 1-1/4" receiver or the 916 Backbone # 753-3581 you can change to if you only have a need for a 2" receiver.
