This is absolutely the finest company that I have had to pleasure to do business with over the years. Lori was terrific in handling my emergency and I had the parts I needed in a very short time. Thank you

Still working great!!

This part of our Yakima rack took the brunt of a rear-end car accident and saved the bumper from damage. I'm glad Yakima is still making the replacement part. The crew at etrailer.com was very helpful - the part was on back order, and they sent me several emails and followed up with a phone call to be sure I knew what was going on. Great service!

This product was just as ordered. I bought a used bike rack and needed the hitch connection. The only place I trust to get parts right. Now I need to order a hitch for my Ford Flex and I will order it from etrailer

Saved me from having to buy a complete new rack!

- 8890340

Placing the parts order was quick and easy. The order shipped the next day and was delivered 2 days later. Everything worked perfectly, could not ask for better service.

Solid replacement part!

As expected Yakima quality.

  • Shank Recommendation for Yakima DoubleDown 5 Bike Rack
    I checked with Yakima and the only replacement shank they recommend for a Yakima DoubleDown 5 bike rack is the part # Y8890212 and they do not recommend the part number you mentioned.

  • How Does Old Lock Core Install Into Yakima Replacement DoubleDown Shank
    The DoubleDown Shank part # 8890340 comes with a knob that has an opening for a lock core to insert as well as a change key. What you will want to do is unlock your current knob on your rack and then insert the change key into it. With the key inserted you will be able to pull the lock core out. With the change key still inserted into the core you then will want to insert the core into the new shank. Once you pull out the change key it will be installed in the new knob.

  • Replacement Hitch Pin Recommendation for a Yakima DoubleDown
    Sounds like you are looking for just the Replacement Hitch Pin # 889-0231 which is the correct replacement part for the shank assembly part # 8890340 that you referenced. If you are looking for the anti-rattle knob that is at the front of the rack you would have to get the part # 8890340 that you referenced.

  • Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge for Yakima DoubleDown Ace Bike Rack
    I checked with Yakima and the SpeedKnob and wedge is not offered separately for the Yakima DoubleDown Ace Bike Rack. Instead, it would need to be purchased with the Replacement Tongue Assembly for Yakima DoubleDown Ace Bike Racks part # 8890340 which is a complete assembly. We have spoken with Yakima in the past and the reason for this is because if the SpeedKnob and wedge were damaged then other components inside were likely compromised as well.

  • 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.

  • Difference Between Yakima Replacement Shanks
    The difference between the two parts are the Yakima racks they accommodate and the parts they include. Replacement # 8890343 is designed for use with Yakima HighLite bike racks, whereas replacement # 8890340 is designed for use with Yakima DoubleDown Ace bike racks. Each comes with the shank adapter, anti-rattle knob and safety lanyard, though # 8890340 also comes with a control key, 8 mm screw, wrench and pull pin.
