Video Transcript for Thule Bike Racks Cradle Replacement Straps Review

What's up, everybody It's AJ with Today we're going to be checking out this Thule replacement rubber strap for a bunch of different Thule bike racks. Right now, we have the Hitching Post Pro on here, and you can kind of tell by the one that you're probably replacing, which one this fits. It's the rubberized one with all the holes. We'll say that you lost yours because I think it would take a lot to damage one of these, or if you just left it out in the elements all the time, and it would dry up and crack, you can easily get this replacement.It's going to be the exact same as the ones that are already on this bike rack. It works the exact same way, goes on and attaches.

It's going to be a great replacement for that one you missed, you might have lost. Now you can order just one if you want. Again, I suggest getting four because if you already lost one, there's a chance you lose another one. Might as well have spares on the ready just in case. Well, I hope this helped.

Thanks for hanging out.

Replaces the straps on the Hold Fast cradles of your Thule bike racks.


I've been jerry-rigging my bikes to my Thule trunk rack with sliced up old tubes for awhile. What a treat to find some place to get these replacement straps. Never thought it would be so difficult to find them. Not only did etrailer have them, they came instantly! Thank you etrailer. If you don't know these guys, get to know them!!


Perfect Thule straps to hold my bike secure on my bike rack.


I am extremely satisfied with I ordered the cradle and to my surprise it was exactly what I needed. Ordering online can sometimes be hit or miss I wanted Thule products and that’s just what I got not some cheap knock off. My orders came quick. I am throughly pleased with my experience.


This item was exactly as described and replaced the missing attachments.


Easy order and great customer service.


Great service. Found the exact replacement part quickly snd placed order which arrive the next day as I requested


Expensive but necessary pieces for my bike rack.


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


These straps were exactly as described and are working great on my bike rack . shipping was fast .


Great company. I’m a repeat customer, and had a great experience every time. Great quality parts delivered on time. I recommend this company.


Genuine Thule part, just what I needed.


A quick & seamless delivery. Thank You!


Etrailer is the only place that offer quite a few genuine Thule replacement parts. Even more so with thorough info which help getting the right part the first time.


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!

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

Strap didn’t last a week


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, my bike rack is better than new and we can take our bikes camping again.

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.

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.

We used the straps frequently and they are still in like-new condition. Great quality!
Lee - 05/31/2020


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

Product has been working 100 still.

I give the product 4 stars. The reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because the cleats where the straps attach are a bit weak and tend to bend and eventually break after a couple of years of use. Apart from that it is a great product.


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!


These straps tend to wear out on bike rake but they are very simple for my wife and kids to use


best quality I found in searching for r eplacements.


They work! The cradle straps for our Thule bike rack had torn over many years of use. etrailer had the replacement straps at a reasonable price and shipped them to me in just a few days. We put them on our bike rack this evening, perfect fit, we are ready for tomorrow's excursion.

Thanks for getting these to us so quickly!


I needed replacement cradles for my Thule Helium Aero bike rack. However, all published literature indicated none was available. I called etrailer and they confirmed that no replacement was approved by Thule. I took a chance and ordered two of these. They are exact replacements for the Helium Aero, look exactly like the old ones, and fit perfectly. To get them on, the rivet holding the end cap needs to be drilled out, and a new rivet installed, but it was a straightforward process. It took me 35 minutes, start to finish, to install.


The product was exactly as described, and shipment was very prompt. Would definitely order additional items from trailer.

  • 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 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 nicely...

  • Replacement Strap For Thule Spare Me 963XT Bike Rack
    I called Thule and they confirmed the correct strap for your Thule spare Me 963XT is the Replacement Rubber Strap T2 Bike Carrier Cradles # 753-3535. The Replacement Straps for Cradles on Thule Bike Racks # TH534 is not a fit your Thule Spare Me 963XT bike rack.

  • Thule Spare Me Pro Frame Cradle Strap Recommendation

  • 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.

  • Reusing Thule Square Bar Roof Rack on 2020 Toyota Corolla
    I have a solution for you but since Thule changed their square bar roof rack setups the only way to reuse your Thule square bars would be with the Inno feet # INSUT which are designed for the exact same dimensions as the Thule bars. Then for a fit kit for your 2020 Toyota Camry you'd just need the # INK593.

  • Replacement Cradle And straps For The Thule Vertex 4 Bike 9029
    The correct replacement cradle and straps for your Thule Vertex 4 Bike 9029 is the Replacement Hold Fast Cradle for Thule Vertex Bike Racks - Qty 1 # 852-3005-002 and the Replacement Straps for Cradles on Thule Bike Racks - Qty 4 # TH534.

  • 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 Anti-Sway Cradles and Reinforcement Straps for the Thule Raceway PRO # TH9002PRO
    The replacement anti-sway cradle for the Thule Raceway PRO # TH9002PRO that you referenced can be found on our site listed as part # TH8523486001. The straps that secure the bike to the cradles and anti-sway cradles are sold individually with part # 852-3006-001 or as a set of 4 straps with part # TH534.

  • 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....

  • What Replacement Straps Do I Need for My Older Thule Bike Rack?

  • 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.

  • 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. The only spare parts in regards to the cradles for this bike rack is the Replacement Cradle Overmold # 852-3003-001 and Replacement Straps for Cradles on Thule Bike Racks # 852-3006-001 (quantity of 1) and # TH534 (quantity of 4).

  • Replacement ZipStrips And Cradles For A Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack
    The Replacement Cradle for Yakima HangOut or KingJoe Trunk Mounted Bike Rack # Y8890153 that you mention is actually a cradle, and fits the HangOut and KingJoe trunk mounted bike racks, so it won't be a fit for your FullSwing 4 bike rack # Y02465. Instead what you're going to want is the: -Replacement Anti-Sway Cradle and ZipStrips for Yakima FullTilt and FullSwing Bike Racks # Y8890302.
