Great service

A good experience all around. Easy to order and it arrived on time.

The order went very smoothly. The tool works!



by:

Exactly what I needed. Thanks



by:

Easy to use website, picture is exactly what you get, I requested quicker shipping because we were leaving out of town and I needed to get them off before our road trip out of state and they actually got here a few days before their estimated delivery date. Shipping was a bit pricey but I guess that's what you pay for when you lose the original wrench!! Ouch!

It’s been performing perfectly, especially since I’m not losing it anymore.



by:

I had lost my original tool to help remove and put on my Thule ski rack. I got a new car and didn't want to buy a new rack so I ordered a new one from etrailer. Works perfectly and got to me quickly. Would recommend and may use again if I lose it again!



by:

Fair price, and items came earlier than promised, which was nice. Glad Etrailer had them.
One of these came with my Thule ski racks, but I forgot where I put it by the end of ski season, so I ordered two more. Luckily, I found the original one, so now I have one in the glove compartment, one in the tool chest and one where the ski racks are stored ! They're unique, so it would have been easier if Thule had included two originally, but that's them.



by:

Just what I needed! Fast and friendly service. That's why I keep coming back.



by:

I misplaced the secure wrench for my ski rack during a move. I was so happy to find it available from trailer! I ordered two and received them within days. Great response time!

It works like a charm!



by:

I just bought a vehicle with a Thule Ski Rack attached, which is great except I don’t ski and it makes my vehicle sound like I’m in a wind tunnel. You need this tool to remove the rack. eTrailer did great - easy to find the product, good buying experience, and they delivered it right away. Given I only spent a few dollars, they could have take their time. I will keep doing business with etrailer.



by:

The product--the key that is the only one that can unlock Thule ski racks from the main car rack-- worked as expected. It came fairly quickly and the price was right. In fact, not only did I not find it cheaper anyplace else...I didn't even FIND it anyplace else!



by:

Part was exactly what I needed, not available anywhere else.



by:

etrailer.com has the best customer service! The part I needed, I couldn’t find on their site. But one of the reps found it for me and had it in the mail next day.
I only needed the special wrench to remove my snowboard rack from my jeep. Joshua K. and George J. were both extremely helpful in getting the wrench shipped to me. I was able to remove the racks and store them away until winter!
Thank you very much!



by:

Tool worked great. I had a hard time finding this tool to remove the security hex bolts on my Thule bike rack. Amazing that etrailer.com had it.



by:

I ordered this wrench because I lost the one that came with my Thule ski/snowboard rack. I received this replacement in 3 days and was able to take my rack off. Great replacement!



by:

George L , Thank you ,part arrived quickly ,we sent our tool and another Thule kayak rack to our son , not thinking we needed for ours oops! Thanks again Nick and Lori



by:

I have a really nice roof rack and box but its useless unless you can put it on the car. For about 3 dollars, I got the tool I needed to install my volvo XC70 roof rack and put it to use. Quick delivery and great customer service! Thank you!



by:

This part was exactly what we needed to tighted down our Thule rack and keep it snug all winter long. We removed our racks for summer, but they are back up for the snow season and hauling our gear to the mountain.

etrailer.com always has what we need.



by:

This specialized anti theft allen key was misplaced in our household and etrailer, lucky for me, carried this replacement. The cost was vert reasonable and the service, contact and shipping was excellent. My thanks to George at etrailer for the speedy fill on my order. I can recommend this site to anyone . 5 stars



by:

Had this tool for my snowboard rack. Somehow lost it between winter seasons, glad I found this website because not many places sell this replacement. Fits perfect, works perfect. Plus shipping was nice and quick.



by:

I bought this tiny wrench for my Thule rack a year ago and e trailer had it available for a good price. They shipped quick as well. The day it arrived, I found my old wrench, but now I can’t find either so I will probably order again .



by:

Exactly what I needed. There is no substitute as it's a security hex-type key. Standard hex keys won't work.
