Exact replacement part

Working great, hauling kayaks this summer!
Thomas - 07/08/2022


Received the wrong item. Emailed etrailer and they sent out the correct part with-in a week. Otherwise i would have rated a 5 star.


These are crucial to using my kayak, and they have been listed out-of-stock everywhere. They came as described and fast!


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.
Jim N - 07/20/2021


The order was straight forward.
amazing or disastrous to report.


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


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.


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!

the parts have worked fine. I use them weekly and have no complaints.
Janice W - 08/05/2016


Thank you for carrying the needed parts and the ease to order and ship.


Delivered quickly and just as advertise d.


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.


etrailer kept me informed every step of the way because the item was out of stock. They sent me an email with updates every week. The parts arrived today. Grateful for such good customer service


Etrailer is my go to company for just about pertaining to RVs and vehicles.


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


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!


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.


Great replacement parts for my Thule Hullivator kayak rack!


Ordered (5) pcs missing from a set of used Hullivators purchased from a 3rd party. (4 pcs needed plus a spare) Fits just fine. Merch rec'd as ordered.


Just what was ordered. Needed hard to find OEM Thule parts.
It's great that etrailer can get parts for Thule products.


Came ahead to time, all pieces complete. We can now use our Hullivator again!


The products I order were just what I needed. They were of excellent quality, no copies or after market. I found the staff was extremely helpful and answered all my questions in a very prompt and thorough manner. I would definitely use this site to purchase more parts if needed. Thank you


Necessary replacement part to maintain safety when using the Hullavator. Delivered on time.


Perfect replacement pin for my older Thue Hullavator

  • 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...
