Excellent service and timely delivery of product! I was desperate as I lost the screw that attaches my Thule bike rack to the hitch. Thought I could run to the hardware store and grab a screw. Nope! etrailer came to the rescue. Thanks!

Had a great experience with etrailer. Needed a bolt for my Thule Bike Rack Hitch. No one else could get me one. They delivered quickly and on time as I had a trip coming up and wanted to take a couple bikes.

I ordered these parts to modify my Thule 916 to carry an Elliptigo in addition to my two road bikes. Ordering was quick and easy plus shipping was upgraded at no charge. Do yourself a favor and order all your racks and parts from these guys. I know I will!

Just needed a replacement bolt for my bike rack. Easily found the right one on the website and it was shipped promptly.

Very nice company and easy to deal with. I ordered a few small replacement parts and they were delivered in about a week. Very quick service.

This bolt, plus the washer and the lock washer were exactly what I needed for the old Thule hitch bike rack I bought.

Fit correctly but I'd I've liked to get a longer bolt with locking pin end

Bought a Thule 4 Bike rack carrier off of Marketplace. Was told everything was good and foolish of me I didn't double check. The bolt it came with was stripped slightly halfway and wasn't securing correctly. Bought this bolt here and man what a smooth fit. Glad it'll worked out and now feel better that it's more secure.

Replaced my late 90's Jeep Cherokee Sport with a new Toyota 4Runner. The Toyota has a 2" receiver, so I needed a solution for my older Thule Hitching Post Pro 4-bike rack. Ideally, it would be nice to get this bolt about 3/4" longer, so it could go deeper (maybe all the way through) the 2" receiver and the adapter to the other side. But it worked good enough as-is. My old bolt was showing some age. Once I inserted the Thule adapter and the bike rack, I tightened it down and the rack did not jiggle around at all while driving. Problem solved!

I live in Upstate New York and owned a Thule bike rack for a long time...but during a recent move I lost the bolt holding the rack to the hitch. I tried to find a replacement at local hardware and bike stores, but no luck (and a few wasted $$$). Then, I saw the internet your internet site with the right bolt right there on the screen. I placed an order for two of them (to be safe....one long and the other short) and they arrived at my house forthwith in a couple of days. Happily both bolts fit perfectly. I am most impressed with the quality of your service...you emailed me about my order, the delivery date, and my satisfaction.....All EXCELLENT. My bike and I are on the road again...thanks.

The original bolt that came with my Thule Roadway bike rack broke off- originally I thought it had backed out and fell off. Fortunately both sides of the receiver are threaded. I found this OEM bolt on the etrailer web site and it was a perfect fit. Rebecca was great on the phone helping me find the correct part- a true asset to the etrailer.com team! Thanks Rebecca.

This bolt was just what I needed for my Thule bike rack. I should have ordered the washer and lock washer at the same time, penny wise dollar foolish. live and learn. Thanks for all the help.

The BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE I have ever experienced!!! A friend asked to borrow our Thule 5-bike hitch for their summer vacation...as I pulled it out I realized it was missing a bolt. I found etrailer on line and called their customer service...They were amazing ...expedited the bolt the same day :)

The missing bolt for my Thule bike rack worked perfectly and allowed me to use my mike rack on my car. An excellent product that is hard to find in bike stores but easy to lose. Thank you

This was amazing. We lost our screw to our bike rack and we took 3 trips to the hardware store trying different sizes of screws- NONE FIT!! We were so grateful we could get the right screw from you!!! Perfect Fit!!

Exact replacement of the OEM part that I somehow misplaced. Now we can use our Thule bike rack again. Simple transaction that arrived on time.

You have to get the original bolt. Others from the hardware store don't fit the threads as well and are not safe to use.
