  • Replacement Cradle For Thule 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
    Thule stopped making the cradles with the integrated strap because they found the cradles were still good when the straps were broken so they separated them to help customers. I recommend the the Replacement Cradle Main Body for Thule Helium Bike Carriers # 853-7605 along with the Replacement Cradle Strap Assembly for Thule Helium Bike Carrier # 752-0947-001. I've attached a link to all your cradle options for Thule bike carriers.

  • Are the Frame Cradles Replaceable on a Thule Helium Bike Rack
    Yes, the cradles on both sides of the arms of the Thule Helium Bike Racks can be replaced. You will want a Replacement Cradle Main Body # 853-7605. For replacement straps you could use the # 752-0947-001 that you referenced. If you have an older Thule Helium there is a chance that the cap at the end of the arm will be riveted on which will make removal difficult. Recently they switched to using a screw to attach the cap to the arm, hopefully this is the version you have. If you do...

  • Removing End Caps of Older Thule Helium to Replace Frame Cradles
    If you have an older Thule Helium (sounds like you do) there is a chance that the cap at the end of the arm will be riveted on which will make removal difficult. Recently they switched to using a screw to attach the cap to the arm, hopefully this is the version you have. If you do have a rivet you can drill the rivet out and use a rivet gun to reinstall the cap once you replace the cradle, or you can send the arms of your rack to Thule and let them replace it. You will want a Replacement...

  • Tips for Preventing a Bike Rack Cradle from Sliding on the Arm
    A cradle slipping is not common but can happen. If the cradle that is slipping is doing so because it got stretched out of shape some how, is wearing out, or was deformed from heat than a new cradle would be the answer. If you have the original Helium and not a Helium Aero then you would need cradle # 853-7605. If the cradle is in good shape then there are a couple of things you can do to keep it in place. One method is to move the cradle out of the way by sliding it forward or backward....

  • Replacement Straps And Cradles For Thule Bike Racks
    I can't find that specific part number, but I know that Thule has updated their straps and cradles. I have linked the page to our replacement straps for you for Thule bike racks like # 853-7803. I have also added the replacement cradles in case the straps do not work with your current cradles. Most of the cradles now have connections like # 853-7605 so that the straps are not integrated into the cradle.

  • Will Thule T3 Bike Carrier Cradle 853-5829 Fit Thule Helium 3 Carrier
    Thule part # 853-7605 is the correct replacement Cradle Main Body for their Helium bike carrier; it works along with mating strap # 752-0947-001. The T3 rack replacement cradle # 853-5829 and the mating strap # 753-3535 will not fit on the rack as the tubing on the Helium is 1-1/2-inches in diameter. I confirmed this with my contact at Thule.

  • Using a Cradle from a Different Manufacturer on a Kuat Beta Bike Rack
    It is possible that a cradle from a different manufacturer will fit your Kuat Beta bike rack. The arms on that rack have a 1-1/2 inch diameter. Thule cradle # 853-7605 will fit that size arm. The strap for this cradle is # 752-0947-001.
