Video Transcript for Yakima Bike Racks Replacement SpeedKnob Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the replacement speed knob and wedge assembly for the Yakima bike racks, part number 8880508. The Yakima replacement speed knob is to be used with the Full Swing, Swing Daddy, Ridgeback and Full Tilt bike racks when their speed knobs are either damaged or the threads at the end are stripped out. It comes with the black knockout here which you're going to remove that and it has the control key to remove the lock core from your previous speed knob to replace it into this one. To get started we'll first remove our wedge piece here by unscrewing it and set it aside now we'll grab our damaged speed knob and start replacing it as well. Now we'll move on to our bike rack and have our Yakima Ridgeback here on our table and the issue with is the thread is stripped out in our wedge. We'll push that off to the side, remove our speed knob as well, now we'll get our new one and start installing it. First since this is a Ridgeback, we'll have to remove this top piece from the wedge. Take our allen tool, unscrew those two allen screws, move onto the one on the inside.

Now we can grab our new wedge and install this piece on top of it. What this piece actually does is it takes up the additional space on our Ridgeback so it'll fit properly in a two inch hitch. If you we're to convert this into an inch and a quarter you would remove this piece again. Finally, our second screw, one last turn to make sure it's nice and tight. Next we'll move onto our lock core switch out here. To remove this plastic cap, we'll take a small flat bladed screwdriver and just pop that out, very easy, and then we'll take our master key here put it into the core and it pulls out like so. Again, very easy.

To place it into our new lock, we'll push it in holding onto the end of the core and pull it out. Now we're ready to install this. We'll take our lock washer and install it on our replacement speed knob here and we'll install it at the end of the shank like so. Then we'll take our wedge and we'll just start to screw it in on the inside. You see the cutout here, you want to make sure that the wedge fits along that area. Here's the end of our speed knob so we'll just match them up, just start threading it in so it catches.

Now we can place it into our vehicle, slide it into our trailer hitch and go by the normal installation procedures for this bike rack. Now we'll go into the end here and tighten down our new knob. As we tighten it down, you'll notice that the shake and play has gone away which means it's working properly. All right, it looks like we're ready to go, we'll lock it into place so it's secure in the vehicle and now we can load up some bikes. There you have it for the replacement speed knob and wedge assembly part number 8880508.

I ordered a replacement part for my Yakima Bike Rack and received it within a few days. My experience with E-Trailer after several orders has always been prompt and responsive. Great company to work with. 589107

When I recieved this replacement part I was surprised because it was different than the original component. It did not have the expansion wing nut at the base. However I soon discovered that this piece was better than the original. I am able to attach and remove the rack without fear of stripping the part. Plus it arrived quickly in time for our trip to the beach. 376819

Item works as described. The five stars go to the customer service people. Noah was great as was a female who assisted me the day before. I could not find the part name and Noah patiently walked me through the bike rack parts until the right part was found. AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!! 515845

I couldn't find the replacement anywhere else including the original dealer that sold me my rack, this part is the right part number and solved my issue effectively. I've purchased more solutions from etrailer.com and every time is always a nice experience. I'm giving 5 stars, for some reason I can't rate with the stars on this comment box. 563265

I bent the SpeedKnob descending a slope and didn't account for the extra length of the bike carrier. Etrailer was the best price and easiest to find this part. It arrived quickly and the installation was very simple. 513932

Great service and delivery. Received product and was able to repair my bike rack in just minutes. Instruction were very thorough. Thanks, this saved me money by repairing myself. 478281

I backed up into a very high curb and broke the knob on my bike rack. All that I needed was a new lockable knob for a Yakima HighLite, 2-bike rack. The only one available for that particular rack comes as part of a Replacement Mast with Anti-Rattle Knob and Adapter Sleeve, I thought that instead I would try the Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly and see if it would work. I am pleased to say that it does! I was able to take both apart, the interior knob parts are the same, so I was able to just use the new knob on the old rack and save Great products and service from etrailer! 452441

Product was good once it arrived. However, the site showed all items in stock. I received an email about a month after I ordered, stating they were on back order. I responded stating that it showed in stock and that I would have purchased through another site had I known this. I got a seemingly automated email back that I took as a "sorry not sorry". I received the order over two months later. Terrible customer service. First time I have shopped with etrailer, and obviously my last. 407484



- 8880508
by:

Product was as described and in new packaging. My only issue is that when I placed the order it did not tell me the item was out of stock and there would be a multiple week waiting period to receive. Waiting happened to not be an issue for me, but it would be nice to know when I am placing the order that it will actually be a back-order situation. Thanks. 403155



- 8880508
by:

This is really more about the service from etrailer which was excellent, particularly with letting me know the original item I ordered was backordered and keeping me posted as it continued to be backordered for longer than anticipated. I was able to find some other products that allowed my bike rack (bought used from elsewhere) to be functional. Thanks etrailer! 402959

Product arrived in good shape with all stated parts. It was exactly as expected and solved my problem. Only downside: small product arrived in huge cardboard box with excessive packing material. 363520

by:

This is the third time that I have had occasion to use etrailer since I purchased a bike rack for my car a number of years ago. Each time the service is great--the website is easy to use, the goods are reasonably priced and they get to me in just a few days. In this case, I needed a new Speedknob and wedge assembly used to tighten my Yakima Ridgeback bike rack into my hitch (the old one stripped out). I got it quickly and once again, I'm ready for another spring of bike riding. 351446

Great—I just put the bike rack on the car getting ready for the spring and all is fine.

Yakima replacement part that worked perfectly with my FullSwing hitch rack. Be aware that the SKS lock is not included so you will need that separately.

Perfect transaction. Great follow up, instant shipping, and the part was exactly what I was missing. A total lifesaver when you've lost a part that makes a $400 bike rack useless. 219086

  • Replacement Parts for Yakima RidgeBack 2 Bike Rack
  • Your Yakima RidgeBack 2 Bike Rack # Y02457 uses a SpeedKnob that tightens the rack inside your trailer hitch receiver. Before removing the hitch pin and the bike rack, you will need to turn and loosen this knob so the shank can slide out of the receiver. To help with removing the red 2 inch adapter from the shank, you can try manipulating the SpeedKnob on the front of the rack while you try to remove the silver and red pieces. You should be able to free up these pieces so they can easily...

  • Replacement Parts for Yakima Ridgeback 4 or 5 Bike Carrier
  • I reached out to my contact at Yakima and the change made to the Ridgeback in November 2015 was most noticeably made to the cradles. The older style cradle had a gray button to release the zip strips and the newer style has a black button for the zip strips, so that is the easiest way to tell which ones you need. Here are the parts you requested: (pre-Nov. 2015) or (post-Nov. 2015) where required Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly for Yakima Bike Racks # 8880508 2 inch shank...

  • Replacement Part for Damaged Anti-Rattle Wedge on Yakima FullSwing Bike Rack
  • It sounds like maybe your anti-rattle wedge was stripped or damaged on your rack, especially if your able to remove it from the rack completely. The correct replacement part for this is the # 8880508. This is a replacement SpeedKnob and wedge for the Yakima FullSwing, SwingDaddy, RidgeBack, or FullTilt bike racks. It comes with a control key so that you can remove the lock core from your previous rack and insert it in here. I have linked this replacement product to this page for...

  • Installation of the Yakima Swing Daddy Replacement Speed Knob and Wedge
  • The Speed Knob replacement # 8880508 for your Yakima SwingDaddy will require removing the wedge and then inserting the threaded screw in the interior. It will be the same basic installation as the RidgeBack model you mentioned. To get the play out of the rack, you will slightly lift and lower the shank of your bike rack as you tighten the speed knob. Any of the small movement that is taken out at install will give you a more stable connection for less play in the receiver.

  • The Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly for Yakima Bike Racks # 8880508 came with the control key for installing or removing unlocked Yakima lock cylinders so you can simply remove your old lock core and reuse it with that key. If you want a new lock core instead of reusing your old one, you can use the single core like Replacement SKS Lock Core for Yakima Racks and Carriers - A151 # Y8771-A151 and get key # Y8772-A151 to go with it or get a kit like # Y07202 that comes with two...

  • Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly For Yakima Ridgeback 4 Bike Carrier
  • I am unsure of what could have caused your Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # Y02458 to lose its Speedknob. The only thing that makes sense to me is that it wasn't tightened or locked correctly, or the knob was faulty and came unscrewed. The wedge may still be in your hitch. I recommend the Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly for Yakima Bike Racks # 8880508 and trying to connect it without the wedge to see if it is still in place. If it is there,...

  • Replacement Lock and Knob for a Yakima DoubleDown Ace
  • I do have an option for you but the Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly part # 8880508 will not work with the Yakima DoubleDown Ace 2, 4, or 5. In order to replace the knob and lock you will need to use the Replacement Tongue Assembly part # 8890340 as they not available separately.

  • Recommended Shank or Stinger Anti-Rattle Support for Accessories
  • Since your Yakima Full Swing # Y02465 is not as stable as you desire, I recommend lifting up slightly on the rack while tightening the knob as you see in the attached video. If the integrated lock is not working properly, you can use # 8880508 as a replacement. If you desire more stability at the stinger/shank, I recommend the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches # RM-061 or the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II # BX88224 to secure the shank to your hitch receiver.

  • The replacement SpeedKnob tightening device for the Yakima SingleSpeed part # Y02481 and Yakima HoldUp EVO part # Y02479 is SpeedKnob part # 8880904. This knob does not come with the lock core so you would need to replace it with your existing lock core or purchase a new lock core with part # Y07202.

  • How To Replace Lost Key for the SpeedKnob On a Yakima Bike Rack
  • I do have an option for you but the SpeedKnob is not something that you can just replace with a standard hitch pin lock. The SpeedKnob serves two purposes, to lock the bike rack inside the receiver tube and to wedge the shank against the inside of the receiver tube for anti-sway purposes. If you do not have the key for the SpeedKnob but it is unlocked then you can just use the control key, part # Y8007835 to remove the lock core and get the key number on the side. You can then order...
