Replacement Knob for Thule Professional Ladder Tilt - 853-5714

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (76 Customer Reviews)

This part replaces 1 hand-operated knob for your Thule Professional Ladder Tilt. The knob fits over a T-bolt and is used to tighten a load stop to the Ladder Tilt arm.


Exactly the knob I needed. Only 1 recommendation: when I was shopping etrailer for the knob, load-stop, and T-bolt, I found a combo pack on the web site with those 3 items sold together. I assumed they would all work together, so I ordered the pack, received it and went to install it on my rack, only to discover that the knob in the combo pack was a larger SAE thread than the metric-thread T-bolt, so they didn't work together. So, if you still have that combo pack listed on your website, you need to swap out the 1/4” SAE knob for the smaller metric-threaded knob that actually fits the T-bolt...
As for the fan, it's in perfect condition but I haven't installed it yet. However, it will replace Jayco's weenie 4-blade, 6-inch-diameter OEM fan in our trailer, so once it's in, I expect MUCH better performance. And the $[XX] price was a great deal. Thanks etrailer!


Always like doing business with you folks! Who else asks you to take pictures and share your projects. Very impressed with the prompt service I get when I have to call for assistance.

Thank You

I looked for a replacement part at the hardware store but couldn’t find one that matched the thread. E trailer has fair prices and fast and reasonable shipping costs.


Exact replacement part. Fits perfectly. Quick processing and fast shipping.


Fitment was perfect Also works good with my Retrax Toneau cover


Great service from etrailer. Only complaint is the plastic looks slightly cheaper than the Thule product. Approximately the same size and it works though, so I'm happy!

Knob is still hanging in there. While the product looks to be made from a cheaper plastic, or isn’t showing any signs of becoming brittle or cracking from the Sun.


It was the wrong part and when I returned it I got [crap] for a refund. I will never do buisness with these people again. Awful!!


Etrailers the place to go great prices great inventory they had exactly what I needed


I lost one of the knobs from my Thule rack. I use the rack to carry my canoe and the knob was essential in positioning and securing the canoe properly on the rack. After a little bit of searching I found the proper replacement knob. The pictures of the various knobs offered by helped a lot in selecting the correct knob. The knob arrived in the mail a few days after placing the order and it fit perfectly. I am now a happy camper, er.."canoeist".


Order arrived as ordered in a very timely manner


Came quick, perfect replacement, very j appy


Product works great, paired with a T bolt to hold Thule kayak cradles.


Easy ordering -fast shipping! Thanks!


Great experience - quick shipping - I was missing a couple parts for a ladder rack and etrailer had the right parts at a good price. replacement knobs were a perfect fit for my rack.


Exact replacement for the one I lost, works great, fast delivery, thanks much.



Knob works great, holding up well in the Florida sun.


This product was a replacement knob, essential to holding my ladder stops in place.


Ery good item and delivered on time.


Also fits Trac Rack.


Exact fit for my truck racks.


The part I ordered came hassle free and extremely fast. I would recommend etrailer to everyone!


Exactly what I needed to replace knob that had vibrated off and was lost. Fit perfect and identical to remaining 3. Thanks to e-trailer for quick order processing and smooth transaction.


I picked up the items yesterday & am very pleased with the speed of delivery and the quality of the product.
Thank you etrailer.





Works well

  • Is there a Tool Needed to Tighten Replacement Knob 853-5714 on a Thule Load Stop
    No, there isn't a specific tool made to tighten the replacement knob # 853-5714 to the rest of the load stop assembly on the Thule/DeWalt Ladder Tilt 339. We still have the load stops though so I grabbed one (off of a ladder rack that uses the same load stops) to see how it operates. Basically, you will place the T-bolt and washer in the channel on the carrier. Then slide the load stop on placing the hole for the knob over the threaded part of the earlier inserter bolt. Then place the...

  • Will Thule Replacement Knob Fit In Place of a TracRac Ladder Rack Load Stop Knob
    The Thule knob # 853-5714 is not a confirmed fit for the TracRac load stops. The Thule knob will accept an M8 x 1.25 thread pitch bolt and is designed to be used with an M8 x 1.25 x 25mm Carriage Bolt. The bolt on the TracRac load stops is a 3/8 - 16 x 1.125 inch.

  • Thread diameter and pitch for the Replacement Knob for Thule Professional Ladder Tilt # 853-5714
    The Replacement Knob for Thule Professional Ladder Tilt, # 853-5714, will accept an M8 x 1.25 thread pitch bolt and is designed to be used with the M8 x 1.25 x 25 mm Carriage Bolt for Thule and DeWalt Contractor Series Ladder Lift. The replacement knob does not work with the Thule Stainless Steel T-bolt, # 853-5648.

  • What is the Width of the Channel Slide Piece of the Thule Replacement Load Stop # 8537165?
    I have a great solution for you. Unfortunately, while Thule could not verify the channel slide piece of the Replacement Load Stop for Thule Ladder Racks # 8537165, my contact at Thule confirmed that the load stop will not be able to fit into the channels of WingBar Evo crossbars on your 2006 Volvo XC70. With this news, the best bet is to use the load stops with the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack for Factory Side Rails TH7502B-TH7503B. This AeroBlade Edge crossbar system will fit on your...

  • Are the HD-80122 Bolts the Same As the T-Bolts in the Aeroblade Load Bar Load Stops Kit
    If you need the HD-80122 bolt only then you can just get the Replacement T-Bolt for TracRac Ladder Racks - 3/8"-16 x 1-1/8" - Stainless Steel # HD-80122. The replacement knobs for the load stop are available with Replacement Knob for Thule Professional Ladder Tilt # 853-5714. You would need to source your washers locally as there is not a specific washer available. If you wanted to just replace the entire load stop then you can use the Replacement Load Stops for Thule Aeroblade Load Bars,...

  • Replacement Load Stop For Older Thule TracRac Ladder Rack
    While your photos did not come through, I can tell you that for an older TracRac, the load stop you mentioned is indeed the correct part. They are solid individually, and if you also need the knob, washer, and t-bolt, we have those as well. So what you can use are the following: - Replacement Load Stop for Thule Ladder Racks # 8537165 - Replacement Knob # 853-5714 - Replacement M8 Washer # 951-0820-20 - Replacement M8 T-Bolt # 853-5715 If you need to replace all four, there is an option...

  • Replacement Tie-Down Loop/Load Stops for an Older TracRac
    For your older TracRac, you will want the Replacement Load Stop for Thule Ladder Racks # 8537165 which has the integrated tie-down. The complete tie-down would include the load stop # 8537165, Knob # 853-5714, M8 Washer # 951-0820-20 and M8 T-Bolt # 853-5715. If you are just needing 1, then you are better off piecing it together. If you are needing to replace all 4, then you can use the Replacement Load Stops # 753-3761 which has 4 load stops with all of the parts needed.
