Video Transcript for Thule Hitch Bike Racks TH534 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the replacement straps for the cradles on Thule Bike Racks. This is a four pack of replacement straps for your bike rack. You can use all four, or you can have some as extras. They can also be used on other brand bike racks with protruding attachments knobs. Now, each strap is made from a durable rubber construction. The straps work on the cradle bodies and anti-sway cradles of your bike rack, and they're designed to keep your bike in place and secured to the actual rack.To see all the bike rack models that these are direct replacements for, you can view that list on this product's product page at etrailer.com.

Now each strap has the same length measurement at eight and three-quarter inches long. The width measurement is one and one-eighth inches wide. The holes on the unit are all separated on center by one inch. And the diameter of each hole here on the flat side is seven-sixteenths of an inch, and on the top side it enlarges a little bit, up to a half inch. That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement straps for the cradles on Thule Bike Racks..

Arrived earlier than expected, fit perfectly. I actually installed this on the Thule 934PRO Hitching Post Pro.

Exactly what I needed. The straps that came with my bike rack are nowhere near as sturdy and grippy as these, so the bikes are held much more securely in place. As usual, fast shipping and great service from etrailer.com.

Product has been working 100 still.

We love working with etrailer. Very helpful if you wish to speak to a representative. We have purchased a trailer hitch for our car as well as a Tulle bike rack. Wonderful products at good prices. As we use our bikes and racks frequently, one of the straps used to secure the bikes ripped apart. I am sure due to heat, rain and other assorted weather conditions, the straps will wear. So easy to go on line and purchase another package of straps. My order was processed and delivered quickly. I have on many occasions recommended etrailer as they have all that you are looking for and good prices!


Comments
Great, sturdy straps! Bought extra not because they tore or ripped, more for the fact we may lose one or two!

Getting the 4 pack is the value way to go. They match exactly the existing straps on my Thule bike rack. etrailer ships things lately even faster than Another online retailer as well!

E trailor is always a great place to order any of my jeep hauling or bike rack parts great service and fast delivery will continue to use this company !!!!!!!

The replacement straps were exactly the same quality Thule straps that originally came with our bike rack, so that was a positive, while the ease of ordering, price and quick shipping made this a solid deal. We will check etrailer now whenever we need something that they supply.


Comments
We used the straps frequently and they are still in like-new condition. Great quality!

Perfect match for the aging straps on my Thule bicycle rack. Seamless ordering and quick delivery ... at a very good price. Without hesitation, I will use etrailer again!

Products came as ordered. etrailer was great about communicating with me while another part in my order was on backorder.

Thanks for a wonderful product! As a 74+ yr old gal I love to bike ride, from short treks w/grandkids to long mountain rides like the Hiawatha Trail in ID/MT. The Thule bike rack is a life saver - it's easy to put on & remove from the car when it's only me going plus it has room for one additional bike. (Before getting the Thule I had to take the truck to fit the bike into, which was pretty terrible on fuel efficiency) The license plate shows w/my bike on so that's a hugely good thing. It can be locked in place on the car plus the bikes can be locked onto the rack, too YES, I would definitely say 'go for it!' it to anyone looking for an easy way to carry their bike - have used it in torrential rain & sunshine & love it always. Have even taken it along when there was no clear plan of going for a bike ride!

I need a bike rack. I had a bike rack, but the straps broke. I thought I would have to junk it and buy a new one. Then, I found all these spare parts for the Thule bike racks. The good news is that not only are the parts better than the OEM straps, they didn't cost an arm and a leg. Thanks to etrailer.com, my bike rack is better than new and we can take our bikes camping again.


Comments
Update on my review: Ive used the bike rack several times. The straps are still the best thing to happen to this rack since I bought it. Not only do they work better than the OEM straps but because it is easy to take them off and store them out of the Sun and weather. Kept in a plastic bag, they are still soft, pliable and strong. In all, a very good buy.

So glad you carry this. So nice to have new straps on the old bike carrier.

Arrived in 8 days. Packaged well. Only reason for 4 vs 5 stars is the tracking number was provided but still showed it was waiting to be picked up making it irrelevant.



- TH534
by:

I regularly use these affordable straps to secure my bike behind my car. One strap tore near one hole after three years of stretching, but all other straps are fine. Excellent product.

by:

The parts were exactly what we needed. E Trailer was awesome to work with. Also they helped me with the exact part I needed to make my Thule kayak rack fit my new rack on my newer van. Yeah!!!!

The replacement parts for my Thule bike rack are excellent. As good, or better, than the original parts.



- TH534
by:

Thule replacement straps have been perfect and held up well over the first year. Show no signs of wearing out anytime soon. Highly recommend to anyone looking to refresh their older bike rack

These are a perfect match I do wish they last a bit longer

Does what it's supposed to. Direct OEM replacement. Easy to order, plenty of shipping options & showed up exactly when etrailer said it would.

by:

Ordered replacement straps. Promptly delivered - worked fine.


Comments
Work fine - but as other reviewers stated - Need four, get eight. They get weathered and break. Totally normal wear. You just dont want to have it happen with your bike one the highway. I only replaced the broken ones - now am coming back to get some spares.

I just needed a couple of parts replaced on my bike rake. I ordered on line, went out of town for a few days. Like magic I got home and there they were! Since I had never ordered from e-trailer before I wasn't sure about shipping. I paid the minimum charge.



- TH534

Arrived quickly in their original thule packaging. These fit well on the table card!we and look to be durable.

This is our 2nd etrailer order (rubber straps for Thule bike carrier). In both cases, the order was promptly handled and delivered within less than two weeks. I will definitely use etrailer again! I had read the reviews prior to the first order (a trailer hitch), and ordered based on the preponderance of the very positive remarks. Now, I have added my own!



- TH534
by:

I'm very satisfied with the products from etrailer. The products are excellent quality and shipping was fast.

exactly like the ones that came in the original package. appear to withstand FL heat and sun, and repeat stress/stretching.

etrailler is my go-to for recreational needs. Products are great, and service is outstanding.

  • Replacement Rubber Straps Compatible with Fat Bikes for use on a Thule Bike Rack
    I have a solution for you, but unfortunately there are no rubber straps longer than the 8-3/4" long Thule Replacement Straps for Cradles # TH534. The reason for this is that none of the racks like the Thule Apex that use these straps, are truly designed to carry a fat bike. Depending on which bike rack you have, you may be able to use the Replacement HideAway Cradle Ratchet Straps for Thule Bike Racks # TH536, which are ratcheting straps that are compatible with the Hideaway cradles...

  • Replacement Cradles, Anti-Sway Cages, and Straps for the Thule Parkway 958
    The cradles that come on the (discontinued) Thule Parkway 958 can be found with part # 853-7887 on our site. For the anti-sway cage you will need part # 853-7758. If you are needing to replace the straps as well you can buy a pack of 4 with part # TH534 or individually with part # 852-3006-001.

  • Replacement Straps for Rhode Gear 2 Bike Rack
    We have found that the Replacement Straps # TH534 from Thule are a good fit for many of the older Rhode Gear bike racks like what you have. This is likely why you came across the product during your search. If you still have an existing strap somewhere you can compare its dimensions to these just to be sure. These replacements measure 8-3/4 inches long and the individual adjustment holes have a 1/2 inch diameter. I have attached a customer review as well that describes them working...

  • Thule Spare Me Pro Frame Cradle Strap Recommendation
    Yes, the replacement strap part # TH534 is the correct strap for the Thule Spare Me Bike Rack part # TH963PRO.

  • Hole Diameter of Thule Replacement Straps for Cradles TH534
    Bike rack parts such as rubber straps like Thule part # TH534 can sometimes be used interchangeably between different brands of bike racks. The Thule straps have holes that measure 7/16-inch. On their top side those holes have a rounded perimeter, to give something like a slight funnel shape, which gives that side of the strap a hole diameter closer to 1/2-inch. Rhode Gear was bought out by Yakima some years back and so there is limited availability of replacement parts for their racks....

  • Solution for Replacement Frame Cradle Strap for Rhode Gear Super Cycle Shuttle
    The best option we have for replacement straps for your Rhode Gear bike rack is going to be the Replacement strap kit part # TH534 that you referenced. The hole diameter is 1/16 inch smaller than what you have but since these straps are rubber and stretchable that wouldn't be an issue.

  • Replacement Straps for a Yakima SwingDaddy Bike Rack
    The Yakima SwingDaddy-specific straps are # 8890221 for three. The holes in these straps are 1/2 inch in diameter so you could really use any strap with 1/2 inch diameter holes. You could get a set of 4 Thule straps using # TH534 if you prefer. There is also a pair of Curt straps you could use, # C18007. Any of these 3 options would work since they all have about the same length and the holes are 1/2 inch in diameter.

  • Does Thule Helium Aero 2-Bike Rack Have Replacement Cradles
    I checked with the manufacturer, Thule, and found there were no full replacement cradles for the Thule Helium Aero 2-Bike Rack TH9042.

  • Replacement Anti-Sway Cage for Thule Bike Racks with Stay-Put Cradles Item # 853-7758
    For the replacement anti-sway cradles, part # 853-7758, your best pick is to use the Thule 4-Pack straps, part # TH534. They are shaped correctly for the Thule Anti-Sway cradles and will work the best over time. If you're needing to pick up individual straps, they are part # 852-3006-001.
