Video Transcript for Review of Thule Replacement Cradle Strap For Parkway Bike Racks - 853-2569

Hi, everybody. Andy here with And today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Replacement Cradle Strap for the Thule Parkway Bike Racks. If you're needing to replace a cradle strap for your Thule Parkway bike rack, then this just might be the strap that you need. Specifically, this is going to work with the Parkway bike racks with the item numbers that you see on the screen. And then let me pull out my ruler here and just give you some overall measurements.

The overall length of this strap, we are sitting right at 5 1/8 inches long, and then the measurement of the adjustment hole width, and not the inside width of the hole but the actual outside width of the hole, we are sitting right at about 5/8 of an inch. Now, this does include one cradle strap. And because this is the replacement from Thule, you can have the confidence that this is going to work with your Parkway bike racks. Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you.

Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

Replaces 1 cradle strap for Thule Parkway bike racks (TH956, TH957, and TH958).


Great that Thule offers replacement parts for products purchased years ago. Thank you etrailer for stocking these and for the support


I never got to use it you sent me the wrong size


I was looking everywhere for these Bike straps for our Thule Bike Rack.
They are not available from the Mfg. But found them at
They fit perfect, and are exactly like the originals ones.
Great customer service and quick delivery.


We were grateful to find the cradle straps for our old Thule bike rack (since Thule doesn't sell the replacement straps anymore). After searching the internet we found that etrailer sells them. After looking at reviews we were hesitant to order them. We called and ordered them on the phone and everything went perfectly. We needed the straps quickly to transport our bikes for a triathlon and paid extra for quicker shipping. They arrived yesterday and they are exactly what we needed.
The staff were good to work with on the phone and very professional


These were a perfect replacement and have held up great for the past year.



The product has held up nicely after 1 year.

@Ryan We're glad to hear that, thanks for checking in!


Multiple straps failed on 2nd/3rd use. etrailer will not replace. definitely not Thule OEM. Very disappointed.


I'm so grateful that e-Trailer sells items like these that are difficult to find. Ordering from e-Trailer is super easy, everthing went smoothly. This is my second purchase from the site.


I was happily surprised at how helpful Customer Service was in determining the part I was searching for.


Exactly what I needed.


Online order was easy to do and received my replacement straps several days later.


Two of the straps broke the second time used.


Great replacement for original strap.


Works well but expensive (Thule)


Like for like replacement straps for my Thule 4 bike rack. This is the only place I would consider purchasing them. Easy order page, fast shipping for a great buy.

Great purchase, use the rack and straps every weekend.


The product is pretty straightforward. It is a replacement for the exact straps I have on the auto bike rack. They work well, which is why I wanted the exact same item as a replacement. What was really terrific was the price and the ease of delivery. I am so glad I did not have to pay an arm and a leg just to have 2 of these items shipped. Thank you, etrailer!



No questions at all. I really appreciate that you sold me just those parts, and did not gauge me on shipping and handling. Should I need anything that you might sell, I will surely want to give you my business.


Only place to find these replacement cradle straps for an older Thule bike carrier. Exact replacement, high quality rubber straps.


Bought these replacement straps for my Thule bike rack. Quality material. Fits perfect! Reasonable price. Fast shipping.



Still great


The replacement cradle straps were high quality and a perfect fit. One year in and they are holding up well. Highly reccomend


I lost a strap for my Thule bike rack. This fit and worked GREAT!!!


Tried buying these at local bike shops and on[line] but they either weren’t available or more expensive. One bike shop tried to sell me the wrong straps. etrailer came through and I’ve purchased replacement straps several times to keep them on hand. Fair price, good service. Recently ordered replacement straps for my Swagman bike rack yoo


I don't think these bike hold downs are as good as the originals. I was driving down the road when I looked in my mirror to notice the bike tied down, was swinging in the wind. I pulled over immediately and found one strap holding and the other came off the peg. I know I made sure both straps were in the proper place when I left with the bike attached. I guess I got Really Lucky I didn't lose my bike to the highway.


Thank you Crystal for the help with my bike rack straps. Etrailer is the best! My local bike stor wanted $50 for the straps that etrailer sent me for $12!!! We are just getting started riding bikes and did not want to break the bank doing it. The used bike rack was only $40 the thought of spending $50 for straps just to use it floored me. I will be back to buy from trailer for any trailer or hitch need in the future. We are retiring so a camp trailer with our bikes on back is on the wish list we buy used so etrailer can make having fun aforadable.


I needed new straps for my Thule bike rack. It is the older model that has the square rubber straps and not the round ones. My local bike shop kept putting me off on getting me some and finally told me they were not going to get any and that I should just update my whole bike rack! Update and expensive Thule bike rack when all I wanted were 4 new straps. Well, I found these online and ordered up what I needed. The shipping was fast, email updates kept me informed about my order being placed and mailed and a follow up email to make sure I'm good with my order.
The straps are working great. I forgot how tight they hold my bikes when they are new! Thanks for getting my straps to me so quickly.


There straps for my Thule 4 position Parkway Bike Rack, are in my opinion one of the best systems to secure my bike for transport. eTrailer Customer service did an outstanding job of support my order. This item was Out of Stock 6 months ago, so I called directly instead of using the web. site, spoke to Paula and the rest of the Order process with flawless! I have dealt with eTrailer four times in the last 10 years, inclduing Hitches, Equipment, etc. and every time the experience has been very satisfactory. This company is a "Class Act" in their field.


I ordered replacement bike straps for my bike rack, but what I ordered didn't fit. I called etrailer and got wonderful customer service. The rep told me exactly what to do to return the merchandise and he told me to take a few pictures of my bike rack along with a picture of the good straps I had on the rack. He emailed me back the very same day with not only the name of my Thule rack, (which I didn't know since I got it from a friend) but he also had the straps that should fit. I ordered those right away and received them within about a week. And they fit! Great service, thanks so much for your help.
