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. 658625

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! 358861

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. 727305

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. 715110

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 :) 688848

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. 449958

  • Replacement Hitch Bolt for a Thule Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack
    It sounds like you are looking for hitch bolt # 853-5917. Even if you don't have the Snug Tite lock you can still use this bolt. But if you wanted to add the lock as well you could instead get # THSTL2 this is the lock, bolt, keys, washers, and a little wrench that you can use to dig through tools to find a better wrench to use to tighten the bolt. I have linked a video review for you.

  • Replacement Hitch Bolt Size for Thule Parkway Bike Rack
    I checked with my contact at Thule and verified that the Thule replacement hitch bolt you are looking for is part # 908-1240-54. It is a 12 x 40mm hex bolt with a property class of 8.8. It should be installed with M12 washer, # 951-1224-54, and M12 lock washer, # 956122159, which are sold separately. For convenience, you may just want to replace the entire hardware kit for your Thule Parkway by ordering # 7520990001. Thule does not recommend that you purchase this bolt or any Thule...

  • Replacement Hitch Pin Bolt for Thule Trailway

  • Hitch Bolt Replacement for Thule Vertex Bike Rack
    While shorter than most hitch pin bolts the Thule bolt part # 908-1240-54 is the correct bolt for a Thule bike rack like the part # TH9030XT. I attached a picture that I took from the install instructions that shows how it works. You may be thinking of a kit like the # THSTL2 which is longer so that a lock can be attached to the other end of it.

  • Does Replacement Hardware Bag 7520990001 Work with Thule Hitching Post 945

  • What is the Grade Rating on the Replacement Hex Head Bolt for Thule Goalpost
    I went to our warehouse to pull this hex head bolt # 908-1240-54. This bolt will have a property class of 8.8 and is classified as a high strength steel bolt. The point at which a bolt fails is the tensile strength, and because it is elongated (much longer than the actual width), the bolt probably failed because it was used past the yield point. As a result, causing permanent deformation and wear. The most common property classes most often used are 5.8, 8.8 and 10.9. If there isn't...

  • Troubleshooting Difficult to Thread Hitch Bolt for a Thule Goalpost
    I really wish we had a longer hitch pin bolt I could recommend for your Thule Goalpost but the part # 908-1240-54 is the only one confirmed as a fit that we can recommend. Sometimes if you move the shank of the rack around as you are trying to thread it in you can help position the shank so that it can allow the bolt to thread as easy as possible. It is also possible that the threads of your Goalpost need to be cleaned to allow the bolt to thread easily. You may try cleaning the threads...

  • Replacement M12 Bolt, Washer, and Lock Washer for Thule Vertex Bike Rack 9029
    The replacement parts you asked about for your (discontinued) Thule Vertex Bike Rack 9029 are part # 908-1240-54 for the M12 Bolt, part # 951-1224-54 for the Washer, and part # 956122159 for the Lock Washer. The Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device # THSTL2 would work as well but if you don't want/need the lock you can use the parts mentioned above instead.

  • Replacement Pin For Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device
    It sounds like you need the bolt for the Snug Tite Hitch Lock for your Thule bike carrier. I can help you out with that. The threaded pin we offer is part # 853-5917. I checked out your invoice and this pin will work great with your hitch lock and anti-rattle device.

  • Replacement Hitch Pin Lock Recommendation for Thule T2 Classic Bike Rack
    For your Thule T2 classic the correct hitch pin/lock replacement you'd need is the part # THSTL2 which comes with everything needed. The bolt you mentioned does not fit the T2 so it would not be what you need.

  • Will SportRack Threaded Hitch Bolt Work With Thule Bike Carrier
    The Replacement Threaded Hitch Bolt, part # 05002400000 is designed to fit SportRack bike racks and cargo carriers and is not a fit for your Thule bike rack. Most bike carrier companies use proprietary threads for their bolts and do not match other manufacturer products. I recommend using part # 908-1240-54 or part # 853-5917 because as you said they work with your Thule bike carrier.
