I have a Thule bike rack that mounts to my trucks trailer hitch. It was designed to use one of these so that you can fold down the "arms" that extend out that carry the bikes, BUT isn't included when you buy the rack. Thule just gives you a bolt, 2 washers, and a nylock nut. Switching this in to replace the bolt is a no brainer. The mount has a second set of holes to lock it in the folded position. 661442

Great product. Fits like a piston, and delivery was FAST! 651106

Replaced the top bolt of the Thule Parkway 958 with the same pin in the lower post. There is a stow position hole that the pin can be inserted in. This locks the carriage in a down position. When needed, the pin can be moved to the top position to allow loading of the bicycles on the carriage. The pin is a nice fit allowing little leeway or rattle. Left the lower bolt slightly loose to allow the carriage to pivot more freely. Very happy with the results. Now I won't run into the carriage as I walk around the truck. The pin was as advertised and well packaged when sent. Thanks. 629324

I bought this for my parkway bike rack. I used it for the top folding piece that holds the bike. Previously it was bolted with the nylon lock washers and was a pain because I would always have to get some wrenches to flip it up and then back down when I was done riding. I left one of the bolts and substituted this for the other one making setup a breeze and the pin is a good length so it sticks out about a half inch or so on other side. The pin is actually Silver not a huge deal but fyi. 407213

Product was just as described and fit the rack perfectly. The Thule parkway four bike rack doesn't come as a tilt down rack in the box. With this low prices fix its much more convenient now! 202645

It fits perfectly on the Thule 2 bike rack. I was disappointed with Thule only giving a "bolt" to hold their rack upward. Thule told me to return that rack and buy the next model +100.00 I sent them a nasty email. Found this quick release pin on a search field, ordered and it came within 3 days. It fit perfectly and kind of matches the one on the Thule bottom holder. Thank you E-trailer 193025

  • Hitch Lock and Stabilizing Straps for Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153
  • There is a security hitch pin for you to use with Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 the # 853-5210-02 you referenced is for Thule bike carriers and load bars. Instead you could secure the cargo carrier to your hitch with the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232. The carrier will not break but for peace of mind I do recommend using Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap # 18050. This will give your carrier the extra support you're looking for; I've linked a video which shows exactly how...

Due to the age of this particular model (my contact says the Rak-N-Loc has been out of production for around 20 years) she wasn't able to track down any specifics with regards to the original pin's thread size or dimensions in order to see if a suitable alternative existed.

  • Replacement Tilt Pin, Cradles, and Straps for an Old Thule Bike Rack
  • It sounds like you need replacement pin # 853-5210-02. This pin is used on several Thule bike racks and other parts past and present. The cradles are going to be a little harder to figure out. I have included a link to the Thule cradles that are still available. Even if there isn't an exact match you may still be able to use one of them if the outside diameter of the bike rack arms are the right size. If you could measure them that would be awesome.

  • Can the Bolt Holding the Arms of the Thule Parkway 4 Bike Rack be Replaced with a Pin
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and she said it is not recommended to replace the bolts holding the arms up with a pin. The bolt keeps the arms rigid which provides the strength to hold the weight of bikes. Replacing the bolt with a pin will allow for additional movement that could lead to additional problems. She also said that if the bolt were replaced with a pin and any damage were to occur, the warranty would be void. The best option for your situation would be to change bike...

  • Replacement 5/16 Inch Diameter Pin for a Thule Rak-N-Loc Bike Rack
  • The original pin for that bike rack is discontinued but take a look at # 516-212TR. This is a 5/16 inch pin that has a useable span of 2-1/2 inches. You may need to bend the rounded keeper to better fit the rack though.

  • Replacement Pin for a Thule Rak-N-Loc Bike Carrier
  • Replacement pin and clip # 853-5210-02 could possibly fit your Rak-N-Loc bike rack if the dimensions are correct for the rack. The pin has a 3/8 inch diameter and measures approximately 2-1/2 inches from under the pin head to the clasp when closed. I could not find the specific part for that bike rack. If these measurements are not correct let me know what dimensions will work because we probably will have a pin that will fit.

  • replacement Pin for an Old Thule Rac N Lock Carrier
  • Do you have a way to measure the opening? For this purpose even a ruler would suffice in showing the diameter that would fit versus what would not. Pin # Y8780020 is a 3/8 inch diameter which is about as small as you are going to find for pins like this. Everything else is going to be 1/2 inch or larger. Outside of replacement bike rack parts we have snapper pin # 14-212TR which is a small 1/4 inch diameter. The same for # 14-238 and the longer # 80235.
