I received the items fast! The screws weren’t exactly like the ones that came with the Thule rack I purchased. I’m not sure if the pictures on the website were deliberately shown in a way to hide how rounded the ends were? These ones aren’t super flat but where these actually screw down in my rack they hide so it doesn’t matter that they aren’t flat! I was also concerned that the key wouldn’t fit to turn the screws but they actually fit perfectly! I will definitely purchase from you guys again! 565127

I needed parts for my older Thule bike roof rack and when I called Thule, they said they no longer carried the parts but recommended etrailer. I was afraid I might have to buy a new rack but etrailer had exactly what I was looking for, including a single screw. The parts were very affordable and arrived quickly. I'll definitely keep etrailer in mind for the future. Great resource ! 852521

The one thing I noticed was the replacement screws are about 1/4" shorter then the factory screws they were a challenge to get on but I think they might be fine 578777

Great service and fast shipping on a lost screw for my Thule ski rack. It isn't like you can just pick these proprietary screws up anywhere. I got enough to replace them all since snow and salt conditions are a little rough on them. Thanks 339823

Got these to replace the stripped tamperproof bolts on my 2007 SAAB 93ss, with the aero bar feet these bolts are slightly longer than my original bolts and require washers to insure the rack is locked in tight, without washers, there is about 1/4in play and the bars will rattle/shake when driving. ****if buying these for your '03-'11 SAAB 93ss roof rack, they will require washers to insure a snug fit 114761
