Video Transcript for Thule Bike Racks Replacement Cradle Strap Review

Your Thule bike rack is designed to give you many years of good use. Here today, we're going to show you how you can make it last even longer with some replacement parts designed specifically for your Thule bike rack. Essentially, any part that's not the metal frame is replaceable so if you find yourself missing a strap, or a cradle, or even your anti-rattle bolt, we have a solution for you.Now unfortunately, our four-bike carrier has become a three-bike carrier because we're missing one of our straps. That's not a problem. Just pick this little guy up here from etrailer.com. You come back here you can see the problem.

We're missing one of our top straps here on the back cradle. This is just a direct replacement. It's going to go right in place, just where your old one did. And then it's that simple, you're ready to go. This is going to be a direct replacement for either of your top straps, or even your anti-sway strap down here.

It's the exact same rubber strap that's found on your Thule Apex, Gateway, Helium, Raceway, Parkway, Vertex, and Hitching Post pro-bike racks so just go ahead and pick up the replacement part if you need it.So just like that, I'm able to load my bike up again, and I saved myself several hundred dollars just by swapping out parts for my Thule replacement part here from etrailer.com.

About a year ago, we purchased a number of replacement parts for our Thule aluminum bike rack. They've all been great. Both anti-sway attachments and straps have held up well, and we've now driven them up and down the US East Coast several times. Very happy with both product and service, and I'd strongly recommend etrailer.com to anyone in the market for replacement parts for their Thule bike rack!


Comments
As a quick follow-up, I can confirm that - after another year of use - the replacement parts for our Thule rack continue to hold up great. I literally couldnt be more pleased with the purchase, and know that - if I do ultimately wear out any of the straps or anti-sway attachments - Ill be back for more. Thanks again etrailer.com!

Searched high and low looking for replacement parts for my Thule bike rack, until I finally found the parts I needed at etrailer. They immediately started communicating with me on the status of my order right up until the parts were delivered (delivered 3 days early). I would definitely order parts or supplies from trailer next time I need them. Thanks for the great service!!!!

After an extensive research I decided to go with the Thule Helium 2.0. This rack is extremely light with very pleasing body structure. In addition it has a built in bike lock cable. I received the rack 3 days after ordering from etrailer and the installation was a piece of cake. At $379.00 is on the expensive side, however it is super light and it is not an eyesore. Awesome Product !!!

I have a 15+ year old Thule hitching post bike rack with 1" tubing. One of the cradle straps broke and I've been looking for a replacement. REI couldn't help me. I looked on Amazon but found what I wanted on etrailer.com for The old cradle had an integrated strap (bad design). I bought the 853-7887 cradle and this strap. Worked great. It took a bit of elbow grease and wd-40 to wiggle it into the tubing. But it'll work just fine.

These straps function the same as the originals. For anyone using their Thule bike rack regularly, you should plan to replace these every few years which seems like a reasonable time frame.

Exactly what I needed to replace straps on my Thule bike rack that were torn though age snd use.

Bought these with the Replacement Stay-Put Cradle for Thule Parkway and Roadway Bike Carriers to replace my Bell cradles and straps. These straps are great. They stretch just enough to make it easy to add or remove from the cradle which I do every time I use my bike rack. I remove them when I bike as they aren't attached to the cradle and I don't want them taken while on my bike ride. They secure my bike well and have stayed in great condition. Probably won't have to replace any of them unless I totally abuse them.

I ordered two small parts for my bike rack and the service was unbelievable! etrailer has a very friendly website and the response time after ordering was off the charts good. And, they followed up immediately. etrailer should patent their service model. Instead of talking about the "Disney Way" we will be talking about the "etrailer Way."

All good for a few more years Thanks for the speedy order response and delivery. Straps where just the right ones for our bike rack.

I was so disappointed when my bike straps failed and panicked - - UNTIL I found ETRAILER.com and saw that I was able to replace broken parts not only affordably but expeditiously! They did a great job of getting my much needed purchases to me quickly! I will be happy to have these folks on speed-dial or in a bookmark for future assistance! I bought a dozen replacement straps for my expensive Thule bike rack. The straps didn't last but a year, so I'll be getting more of these, no doubt. Love the bike rack, need the straps...so happy to have a source.

so far, so good. not enough riding, however!!!

Perfect fit replacement for missing parts on my old but still functional Thule Vertex bike rack. Very easy install.

So glad I ordered the replacement straps for the cradles on my Thule bike rack. I probably stretch them too tight to make sure my bicycle is secure on our bumpy dirt roads so having extras in my car in case they break solves that issue. Thanks for carrying them, etrailer!


Comments
Same as when I purchased them. Perfect! I use the bike rack constantly & the straps are holding up, especially since i’m Not stretching them to their limit.

I have an older model that was missing some parts so I was not able to carry more than one bike securely. These came in a timely fashion and worked great. I added these missing parts and carried two bikes into the mountains for a week long assisted bike trip. Bikes were carried securely as originally intended, even over rough forest service roads, without sway or mishap. I would go thru etrailer again if I needed parts.

Perfect for what we needed. My husband has misplaced this crucial part for our bike rack. So happy to find on etrailer.

I used these straps to rebuild a bike rack a friend gave me that had rotting nylon cinch straps that were broken and falling apart...These are thick strong rubber and quick release, but they hold tight and never have failed...Super easy to use and save so much time. I've used the bike rack ALOT for over a year now with no problems!

Got them on over 1" diameter bars on a 20-year-old Yakima bike rack. Rub the bars first with [dish washing soap] or similar product = enough lubrication to make getting them on easier, but then dries so the cradles stay where you want them. Remember to buy the straps if you don't already have them - cradles don't work/secure your bike without them, but don't come with them. The cradle is bigger than I expected, making it hard to position my wife's bike over it (not much space between the elements of the frame). The extensions at the bottom are to hold the sway stabilizers (another extra purchase + more straps if you need them). May carve off the bottom extensions of one cradle to ease that. When the bikes are tightly strapped down, I don't think I'll need the sway stabilizers. Great service. Great prices. Prompt shipping. Solution I couldn't find anywhere else.

Found the exact OEM bike rack strap that I was looking for and I got here super fast so happy!

We have a Bell two-bike carrier that we like but the Bell cradles rotted and crumbled to pieces after a few years. I had trouble finding any that looked well-made, but finally found the Thule brand at etrailer.com and liked the look of them. I ordered these to go with some replacement Thule cradles and am very happy with them. They are easy to use and seem to hold firmly. I think they are very high quality and recommend them to anyone needed replacement straps for the Thule cradles.


Comments
They still look new and are still working great. Still highly recommended.
