Replacement Pivot Pin for Thule Hullavator - 853-5869

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (85 Customer Reviews)


Etrailer is a great place of those unique one-off items that are so critical - yet few places carry. I have also found their videos to be very helpful - especially related to kayak rooftop carrier options.


Product is fine. However I paid extra for. This to be delivered on the 15 th but it arrived on the 21st


The Hullavator is a brilliant invention for seniors like us who like to kayak, but don't like lifting a 50 pound boat onto the top of our rather tall SUV. Having extra pivot pins in the back of the car is insurance that we won't find ourselves unable to return safely home.


I’ve ordered a number of items from e trailer. They have been utterly reliable.


Easy and intuitive navigation of website. No fuss ordering, reasonable pricing, and quick delivery. Thank you!


Fits well and does it's job well. E-Trailer pretty useful for a wide range of items, even in this case a pin for a kayak carrier. Price, and delivery always good.


Exactly what I needed, and FAST delivery. These are exactly the same as the original Hullavator pins, and when I misplaced mine on a recent kayaking trip, I wasn't happy. Less than a week later, I'm happy again.


Excellent service, quality product, and fast delivery. Great job, and thank you for putting your customers first!



They’re working perfectly!


Excellent service!


Just what I needed - and received it quickly - thanks again


Product as expected quick delivery and good communications


Finding this a good company to deal with, order arrived when they said it would.


Never did find the original ones. These were a life-saver


It took a while to arrive. It’s perfect thsnks


Ordered pivot pin for my Hullavator kayak rack. Ordering was simple and my product arrived on schedule. Thanks for getting me back on the water!

Janice W.


the parts have worked fine. I use them weekly and have no complaints.


Great product unique to Thule Haulavator. Service was prompt, but timely delivery very expensive. etrailer is a great resource for hard-to-find products.

Just what I needed.


Since I did lose parts of my Thule Hullavator, I figured it would be a good idea to find a replacement for this piece which is very critical to holding the racks in place. Searching the website was easy as well as ordering. I received it quickly and it’s now in my emergency kayak kit ready to deploy if it’s ever needed.


During the off season I misplaced the Pivot pins for my Thule Hullavator. These pins were exactly what I needed to get my kayaks back on the water. Ordering was super easy and the pins shipped quickly.


Not much to review- perfect replacement for the pin in my Thule Hullavator that I misplaced when I stored it for winter. Fit perfectly, eTrailer shipped quickly, I’m back on the water in a flash.


quick service and all the parts for the Thule Hullavator .....great to know they are available on quick notice...with out this simple piece of metal the whole thing would be quite I got 2 spares hoping to never need them


Exact replacement part



Working great, hauling kayaks this summer!


I went to put my Hullavator on my car, and found I was missing my pivot pin. We are going camping/kayaking in one week. etrailer got the part to me within the 4 days we planned. All looks good for a great kayaking trip.I had questions about the part and customer service was amazing. They were so helpful, something you don't find too often with other companies.


Everything it was supposed to be. Fairly quick turnaround. I have no idea how I lost this piece of hardware from my hullavator, but buying a replacement made more sense than spending any more time looking for it.


It was so great to find this pin here. It was an exact replacement for the original with my Thule Hullivator. I lost my originals and was out of business. Fast delivery and now I am using my rack again!


Great replacement parts for my Thule Hullivator kayak rack!

  • Replacement Brackets for Thule Hullavator 897XT
    The mounts for the older Thule Hullavators, 897 and 897XT are different than the newest iteration, the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898. If you have the oldest version, which is the 897 (and only available from February 2005 - December 2005), I checked with Thule and they no longer offer replacement mounting brackets. If you have the Hullavator 897XT though, there are a number of replacement parts available, depending on what you need. - Replacement Underbar Bracket for Thule...
