Warning: this “adapter” does not come with the 2 screws needed to attach which makes it useless. I spent $20 on rush shipping to get this in advance of bike trip which ended up being a waste since I wasn’t able to use it. Went to 3 local hardware stores and they do not sell the screws which Thule describes as M8x30. 439963

Product is a perfect fit and arrived quickly. Unfortunately, it did not come with the screw to attach it and I had to order that separately and pay the additional shipping. eTrailer provides excellent service and products. 670625

The product is very well made. I only wish that there were the two screws to attach this to my existing bike carrier. I understand why they did not come with it since this is a replacement part, but I lost the original part with the two screws. 482713
