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!

These folks are great. The parts were exactly what was needed to get our old Thule racks back in shape. Looking forward to a great summer of biking!

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.

This was the perfect tool! I picked up a pair of Thule ski racks from a local buying group but couldn't install them. I found etrailer and this tool. They shipped it fast and it was exactly as advertised. Very satisfied!


Comments
Wow, thanks for reaching out. I wasnt expecting a follow up. Yes, I love the product. In fact, Ive loaned my roof rack to a friend numerous times and the tool continues to work flawlessly. Again, I appreciate you reaching out and checking up. Happy Holidays to you!

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.

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

I wouldnt leave home w/o my Thule Hex. Still very pleased.

excellent transaction, product as described and arrived in a timely manner to reassemble my Thule rack on my new car ( I lost the original tool)

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!

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.

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!

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!

Product was exactly what I was looking for and worked excellently to remove my Thule ski racks I installed 8 years ago, but lost the tool to remove and install on another vehicle. The product arrived in 2 business days and is priced perfect.

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!
