Replacement End Cap for T2 Bike Carriers - 853-7017

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (84 Customer Reviews)


Product is a great fit, just as described and exactly what I needed. My rack is a Thule T2 Classic, and this end cap fits perfectly at the end of the main support piece that extends perpendicularly from the vehicle—to cover the hole where the 2-bike add on would go. I’ve ordered multiple times from etrailer, and am consistently blown away by their service, website ease of use, and overall customer experience. They provide information you never knew you needed/wanted, and go above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction. Fast and efficient shipping as well. Thanks!


Arrived on time, fit great and still look and work awesome.


Took some quick measurements to make sure I was getting the right part. etrailer delivered my order as promised.

These caps are for ends of the Thule T2 hitch rack, not the ends of the grey bike trays.


This is exactly what I needed for my rack, wasn’t even available from the manufacturer! Perfect fit, great price!


Easy,convenient and fast delivery! Than ks


Item fit perfectly and was perfectly de scribed!


Excellent price and high quality product. Exactly what I needed for my Thule T2 bike rack. They're inexpensive, so I bought a few extras for the inevitable loss of another end cap down the road.

Haven’t had a problem since installed. Great replacement for missing end caps.

Order arrived today and was exactly what I ordered with a reasonable delivery time.


We bought a used Thule Parkway Bike Rack and realized some of the pieces were missing- end caps. We found etrailer on a google search. It couldn't easier- very efficient web site. They shipped the replacement piece and we were very satisfied. I order a few more replacement parts for the bike rack and will continue order parts and items from etrailer. Thanks


I had purchased a used Thule T2 bike carrier and noted that the end cap was missing. I checked the Internet for the replacement part and found was the easiest website to navigate AND had the cheapest cost (including shipping). Furthermore, it arrived two days EARLIER than estimated.

I also liked the personalized email correspondence from etrailer with a name and phone number to inform me of each step in the process. I couldn't be happier with the experience as will make one of my first internet searches from now on.


I have a well-used Thule Hitch rack. was easy to navigate, very reasonable price-wise, provide factory replacement parts, and my order arrived promptly. I will be using for all of my hitch-part needs.


Product was just what I needed to replace a lost end cap for my bike carrier (Thule does not offer this part). Price was excellent and delivery prompt. In my case the shipping was the most expensive part of the order $6.99 seemed out of line for what this particular item.


This end cap fit my T2 Bike carrier. It was delivered early and is exactly as described on the website. It goes in snug, which makes me think it will stay in for a long time, in fact I think this one is better quality than the one that came with the carrier. They are so inexpensive it is worth ordering a handful and important to have to keep rain out.


This was a tiny part off my Thule T2 rack that came off when I scraped a steep RR crossing. I was shocked that eTrailer actually carried this as a replacement part. It arrived quickly and fit perfectly. Now, I don't have to worry about water getting inside the rack tubing and rusting it from the inside out. I'm very pleased.


Used a rubber mallet and went in perfectly.
bought 2 just in case.


Fit perfectly and securely! Excellent! !!


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!


Plastic end caps fit perfectly on my Thule bike carrier. Nice tight fit, easy to push in, will not pop out.


Used this end cap on my Thule T2 hitch mounted trailer. It fit perfectly, and delivered the product in a timely manner.


etrailer is always reliable and the best at getting the exact part you need. Thank you!


I could not find these at my local bike stores. I found them available at etrailer . Perfect fit, great price, fast shipping. etrailer has great descriptions of their products with pictures.


Bought for my Thule Roadway 915 XT and it works perfectly. It has a nice snug fit and I have no worries that it will not be falling out. I would buy this again.


This end cap fits my Thule Expressway 995 bike carrier perfect.

by: always has great prices, and hard to find pieces for my Thule bike rack!


The cap is what it is. Was a little surprised that I was unable to buy the latch separately to fix the rear wheel retention unit. But thule must not make it available. The part does the trick! great dealing with e trailer
