Video Transcript for Thule Hitch Bike Racks 853-7002 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the replacement wheel strap for the Thule T2 hitch-mounted bike racks. This part number comes with one strap. It's going to fit the Thule T2 bike racks, part number TH916 and 917. This end right here, this is the end of the strap that goes into the wheel tray housing. The other end feeds through the ratcheting side of the tray. Let's take a look at some of the dimensions real quick, starting with the overall length. Measuring edge to edge, it's going to give us a measurement of about 11-1/2".

Just the rigid area, so from this point here to the end of the strap, is about 8-1/2". Side to side it's going to give us a width of 13/16". Right here it's got the indention. It's just a nice, easy-to-grip area. That way when you're placing it over the wheel, place it through the ratcheting mechanism. You can grab that, pull it tight, and then finish the tightening process with the ratcheting portion of the wheel tray.

That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement wheel strap for the Thule T2 hitch-mounted bike racks.

Strap is working fine after one year of use. Recommend purchasing spares in case the OEM strap breaks - at the most inconvenient time!

A main requirement if you own a Thule hitch bike rack, for those who do, you know what I mean. They seam to grow legs and walk off, or...maybe I leave them on the rack and drive off!!! Either way, I order 4 from etrailer, immediately received a confirmation email of my order. Then very quickly received the second email my order was shipped. My kind of Internet shopping. Product arrived USPS soon after. Great experience. Thanks. 655848

My original straps finally wore out after almost 18 years. So I called Thule to order replacements. Unfortunately Thule informed me they didn’t have any more of the straps I needed. I looked around the internet and found this company. The straps were marked up almost 1.5x the price that Thule had them listed for, but, as we know, Thule told me they were out. So... I took a chance here and bought from this company. The product arrived very quickly, and while it is not OEM, they both fit very well. I give this company an A plus, and well, beggars can’t be choosers so I have to give them a pass on the price increase, Even though I hate to do that. They were my only option, and they eere Worth the extra cost. Sorry I don’t have a pic. 553650

This replacement strap fits the original Sportsworks hitch-mounted bike rack that morphed into the Thule T2. The rack itself is expensive but well worth the money; a lockable, strong rack that doesn't wobble. The straps don't like the Florida sun so plan on replacing every three or four years. The strap holds down the rear wheel but the real security is on the front wheel. I've had the rack for more than ten years and never had a problem at freeway speeds or on rough roads. 504067

It took my a while for me to find this because I have an older model Sportworks tray bike carrier. I come to find out its the same as the Thule T2 carrier. The straps fit perfectly in my carrier. The ordering process was painless and it arrived as scheduled as per the tracking information. Solid in all areas. 451758

  • Replacement Strap for Thule Bike Rack
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and in order to try and determine exactly what model bike rack that you have, it would be best if you could provide us with a picture of the rack. Two products that you may want to take a look at are Replacement Strap, # 852-3006-001, and Replacement Anti-Sway Cage, # 853-7758. Both of these pieces were used on hitch mounted bike racks so I would compare these to the ones currently on your bike rack. If we still don't have a match, please send...

  • Replacement Strap and Rear Wheel Cradle for a Thule T2 Bike Rack
  • You will need to replace the whole rear wheel cradle since the ratchet part is fixed to the wheel cradle. The original rear wheel cradle was replaced with a version that will now also accommodate fat tire bikes (but it still fits the T2 bike rack). It is # 7521568001. The strap is included as well.

  • Replacement Tire Strap for Sports Works Platform Bike Rack
  • I am not familiar with the Sports Works bike racks, but I recommend measuring your wheel strap to see if the Thule Replacement Wheel Strap # 853-7002 has matching dimensions. The Replacement Strap # 853-7002 is 11-1/2 inches long by 13/16 inch wide. I have attached a picture with these measurements on it for you. I cannot guarantee that they thread patterns will be the same. If you could send me a picture and the measurements of your strap, I will be happy to see if we have the correct...

  • Replacement Key for Thule Bike Rack
  • We can help you with replacement keys for your Thule bike rack. Thule products use coded lock cores and the number code on your lock will tell you which key to order. Please refer to the linked photo that illustrates a lock core. You will use partial part number THKEY and add to it the code from your lock. In the photo example that shows lock code N030 you would then order part # THKEYN030. Since keys are sold individually you might want to order a couple so you have a spare. In case...

  • Replacement Tire Strap for Sportrack Hitch Mounted Platform Style Bike Rack
  • I spoke with my contact at SportRack and if you need a replacement strap for your SportRack Super EZ Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, SR2901XT, you will need part # 853-6512. Although the Replacement Ratcheting Wheel Strap, # 853-6512, and the Replacement Wheel Strap for Thule T2 Hitch Mounted Bike Racks, # 853-7002, looks fairly similar, the # 853-7002 has not be tested for use on the SportRack carrier so we can not guarantee that it will work.
