I was very happy to find these end caps for my Thule bike rack through etrailer. I had 2 of the originals missing. They fit perfectly! My experience with etrailer was very positive. I was informed about my order every step of the way. The order arrived promptly,and I am very satisfied with both the product and the service!


Made it easy for me to get the Thule replacement parts I needed. Thank you!


I was missing end caps from my Thule Classic T2 and this was easy to install. The end product made my old T2 look like it was new.


End cap was missing from my Sportworks (Thule T2) bike rack. Tried the local big box home improvement stores but was unable to find anything close to what was needed. Internet search led me to and I was able to find replacement parts which I ordered along with some spare wheel straps, (just in case). Parts were perfect fit and protects inside of tubing from weather damage.

Prices were terrific, shipping reasonable and product arrived very quickly. Customer service was always available and kept me informed of my order status. Will definitely do business with this company again.

Product is working great, good fit and no problems.


Perfect replacement!!


This replacement end seal cap was a great find! I have the Thule T2 Bike Rack mounted on my SUV. Last month I noticed that one of the end seal caps was missing. (I'm not sure how that happened, but it is my guess that one of the cyclists---who also had a Thule T2 rack on his automobile-- at my most recent century ride decided to use the "five-finger discount" and remove one of the end seal caps from my rack to replace a missing cap on his rack! Yep! Sadly, stuff like that happens... even at a charity/fund-raising cycling event.) Fortunately, I was able to find a replacement cap on the website and order a few of them (just in case another cap comes up missing in the future.) Delivery was fast and efficient! Customer service is fantastic! I have installed the end seal cap on my rack, and after seeing how firm and snug the cap fits into the rack , I'm now certain that the original end seal cap was intentionally removed rather than being dislodged due to repeated vibration caused during traveling on the highways/roads. Thanks for the excellent and fast service! Cheers!


All stocked up - great replacement part s!


These are the rectangular end caps that go into the silver T2 bike holders, rather than the square end caps that go into the black T2 swing arm that plugs into the hitch receiver (the square caps get lost more frequently than these rectangular ones in my experience). So, make certain that these rectangular ones are really the caps you're looking for! Otherwise, you'll pay more in shipping to return them then they cost in the first place.




End cap went missing, etrailer had one in stock, quick shipping (of course shipping cost nearly as much as the item) Thule brand end cap.


Pretty straightforward product at an excellent price, so I ordered a few of them for backup. is great to deal with, and the items shipped fast. I will definitely order through them again.


eTrailer is the real deal!

arrived in a timely matter, were in great condition and worked perfectly. I'll definitely be replacing more Thule components on my racks through

Thanks George and team!


Great service and great product. Will try etrailer first for all my needs





I’m glad you can still get the parts to refurbish my t 1 hitch rack e trailer has tons of stuff to make it like new again


Only place I was able to find the part for my bike rack! Very easy navigating the website for my item to purchase.


The replacement parts for my bicycle rack were great. I had to make a few minor adjustments to my existing parts to make it perfect. I am very satisfied.


Etrailer always has accurate descriptions of products and fast shipping.


Perfect stated description..

good quality and works great , fast service. I will buy from etrailer again. thanks

  • What Size Tube Does Replacement End Cap Seal 853-5961 Fit
    Replacement End Seal Cap # 853-5961 measures 2 inches by 1-1/2 inches on the cap part but not the part that fits in the tube, see picture. The part that fits in the tube measures 1.98 inches by 1.42 inches so it is just a tad bit too small for a 2 x 1-1/2 inch opening. While we do not have one that matches exactly you could use this Thule cap by wrapping some electrical tape around the parts that fit in the tube to make the dimensions larger and then tap it into the end of the tube using...
