The replacement buckle protectors were shipped and received promptly. My only complaint is that in my opinion Thule overcharges for these things. If the price was for a pair it would seem reasonable. 872452

The straps last forever, but the rubber things that protect the car and other things the straps touch eventually split and come off. I was so happy to find these. 871040

Even though the mail system is going through a tough time my items arrived in a timely fashion. They were exactly what I ordered. I'd definitely use this company again. 863050

These rubber covers are great and are exactly as pictured. I can protect my car from dings and scratches when hauling my kayak around! These worked with the random straps that I already owned which was extra nice. 848376

These protectors fit common 1 inch wide straps that i got from Harbor Freight. Athe protectors will save surfaces from scratches and when the end buckle swings around it dose prevent damage to other surfaces. Price was right also.. :-) 718545

I bought these to use on a set of Thule straps that came with a thule Top Deck kayak rack that was at the lower end of the price range and didn't include bumper straps ( I was disappointed in Thule for not including them, even at the lower end the rack was almost $200! It should have included bumpers!) . They work perfectly on the straps, make them identical to the straps I have that came with bumpers. 705011

This is one great gadget. Got a kayak rack that had 2 straps with these on them. They keep the buckles from hitting/scratching the car. No more paint or glass chips. Bought extra for all other straps. 688264

One year later. When I put things away before winter, I wont have to try to remove scratches from the paint! These are just what I needed.

I have buckle protectors on straps that came with my Thule kayak j-cradles, and had been looking for years for protectors for my other kayak straps. Only e-trailer seems to carry them! I love that the protector completely surrounds the buckle, and that if I need to replace a fraying strap, the protector is interchangeable, easily sliding off the old, then onto the new strap. I highly recommend both the buckle protector and e-trailer! 662569

These buckle bumpers have saved my windshield & paint. I bought a set for me and a set for a friend as a gift. They fit over strap cam buckles and make loading and strapping safer. When I drop the buckle or toss it over the car, I don’t worry about cracking a window or scratching my paint. I love them and highly recommended them. Also I’m really glad to find etrailer.com for replacement parts. Very professional & fast, easy to use web site & great prices on hard to find parts. Thanks so much! 561782

Ask the Experts about this Thule Accessories and Parts

  • Original Thule Portage Replacement Parts
    The Thule Portage has gone through several redesigns, the most recent being part # TH819. This kit is compatible with all of Thule's old style Square bars and their newer Aero bars. I'd recommend getting these if you don't already have a kit, as they will be the easiest way to add gunwale/portage load stops to your setup. If you have them already, or just want to build the older style, I've included all of the replacement parts below that complete the assembly of the older style Portage....

  • What Size Buckle Fits with Replacement Buckle Protector # 853-5593
    Replacement Buckle Protector # 853-5593 is designed to fit Thule cam buckles that are 1-1/8 inches wide, 1-7/8 inches long, and 1/2 inch tall. It fits snug on the buckle and the strap has to run through it so it won't come off. You also might consider some hook and loop straps # SR18679 to keep straps and other things nice and tidy.

  • Parts Needed to Carry 3 Kayaks with a 2015 Jeep Cherokee
    You are definitely off to the right start by replacing the OEM roof rack on your 2015 Jeep Cherokee with the Thule WingBar Evo Setup # TH711200 and # TH710401 and using it with the Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830. You can use the 4-Cylinder Set # TH450400 to lock your roof rack, but The Stacker actually doesn't come with the ability to lock. In addition to these items you'll also need 2 more tie-downs # 753-2030-02 and 2 buckle protectors # 853-5593 as well as...

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2014 Chevrolet Equinox
    For your 2014 Chevrolet Equinox, I recommend the Thule SquareBars # TH712100 with the foot pack # TH710401. These crossbars attach to your vehicle's raised side rails with a rubber clamp. These square bars are an economic option from a well known and respected brand. In order to carry two kayaks on your roof rack, I recommend Thule's The Stacker # TH830. This carrier provides a support for your kayaks to sit on their sides on top of your vehicle. The carrier comes with tie-down straps...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2008 Mini Cooper
    The Rhino-Rack Load Bars, 46 Inches # RRVA118B-2 with the Legs # RRRLKVA, and the Fit Kit # DK472 will work well to carry your kayaks on the roof of your 2008 Mini Cooper hatchback. At 96 pounds, your kayaks are within the weight capacity of the rack, however you will want to check your owner's manual to confirm the weight capacity of your Mini Cooper's roof. With the load bars being 46 inches long, you should not have any problem carrying the kayaks on their sides. The kayak...
