Outstanding company to do business with! The bolt and assembly pieces l ordered for my Thule bike rack arrived promptly, and l was able to immediately attach it to my car’s trailer hitch. Thanks!!

The bike rack and assembly pieces l bought last year are still functioning like champs!

He salvaged a less than memorable performance by one of his peers by taking the time to listen and research my needs for a part needed for my Yakima Bike Rack. He "rocks" and I am now quite happy once again. I had lost the part which allows me to safely lock the rack on my vehicle.


On receipt of the part, I notice that it has “clip points” that would indicate that the bike rack should have two holes for the points to snap into. My rack does not have these holes.
My rack is 20+ years old and they must have changed the design sometime since then.
You may want to indicate on your site that this part is for the “new model” and will not easily be useable in the older model racks.

This replacement hitch bolt is specific for certain Yakima products. If you let me know which Yakima product you need a hitch bolt for I am happy to assist.

This replacement part resurrected my Yakima bike rack! Worked perfectly!


Finally, a threaded hitch bolt long enough for a class V hitch with a sleeve adapter! I've had a heck of a time finding something that would work. This does the trick. Well packaged, fast shipping. The only thing that would make it better would be free shipping.


I purchased this item to stop the rattle on our Yakima swing arm rack but I CAN NOT FIND out how to assemble it on the hitch. Help, help, help. All I can find is how to put the pieces together and not how to mount it on the hitch/bike rack ?????

Thank you for your review. Here is a similar installation video that is a little different in size but essentially installs the same:

Item is pretty simple. Could have some sort of instructions such as can bolt enter from either side? Also with shipping nearly $xx.

I reached out to the manufacturer and they confirmed that the bolt can be entered from either side.

I have an older Yakima receiver rack that needed an extension to clear the tire carrier on my Jeep. I wanted a way to secure the extension and remove the rattel the extension was making. This combined with the Yakima lock did the trick. Easy to install.

Stout as the day I bought it !

Etrailer was very responsive. I ordered a part that was 2 months out and they contacted me to come up with options to get what I needed earlier. Despite being able to come up with an alternative, they were able to get me what I needed a month early and kept me updated the entire time.


This works perfectly for my Yakima HoldUp 2 with 2” receiver. Very fast shipping and took less than 5 minutes to remove the previous bolt that was tightened too tight by the previous owner and replace this entire replacement hitch hardware. I had actually order the wrong part online. A quick call to customer service George J, and he setup the correct part for me at a 30% savings over the wrong part I had placed on line. I highly recommend this company!,


The insert does not come close to fitting in the end that goes into the receiver. If not for the service E trailer provides I would not have wasted my time to do a review! I need to return it and am still looking for a replacement!

The hitch bolt/nut assembly isnt a universal-fit part, itll only fit the Yakima bike racks listed in the product description above. If you could tell me the make and model of your bike rack, Id be happy to help you find the correct part.

This product was an ideal replacement for the Yakima Bike Carrier. We had lost this bolt to secure the 4-bike carrier that we owned to the car. Product arrived quickly and was sealed in a plastic bag in perfect shape. I certainly recommend it to others. You should check to see that the carrier will fit your vehicle.


They were so helpful when I knew nothing!! I needed a trailer hitch for my bike rack. Quick,easy,GREAT price! They even took the time to explain what I needed for my bike rack and why! Nicest guys in the world! Love them!

Exactly what I needed and super quick s hipping!


The replacement part fit exactly as I expected and repaired my bike carrier. Shipping was quick also.


Critical part to prevent Rack from swaying. My Rack is over ten years old, and the new part still fit perfectly.


Helps keep Yakima rack from moving while in receiver- works as advertised


Worked fine. No problems


I have experienced this unit on my Yakima rack, it's great. I bought two more sets to use on a couple of other rack sliders to firm them up as well. I shaved one down to fit inside the slider but that's not a big deal.

Kudos to etrailer's system, it's easy to see that the etrailer staff is on-the-ball with their business. That being said, I can't help but notice there was no complimentary bag of Peanut M&Ms in the box.


Exactly what I needed. Lost original hitch pin during a move. This fits perfectly.
Sales rep on phone was super. Figured out what I needed and got it to me quick. Suggested lower priced shipping which turned out to be faster! I couldn't t be happier.


My replacement hitch bolt is working like a champ. It fit my old rack perfectly, installed easily, and has been working great ever since (~ 1 year).

Shipping and support from etrailers was excellent.


Exactly what I was looking for to fit my 10-year old Yakima 4-bike carrier. I lost my bolt and locking cap. Etrailer had both items and they fit my carrier perfectly.


The product I needed at a good price


The insert did not fit in the replacement spine. I had to take the nut from this product and adjust to make it fit in the insert from the replacement spine. I was able to make it work, but these parts do not work seamlessly with the replacement spine for the Yakima Holdup.


Worked great for my truck with 2 1\2 inch receiver . I needed the extra length for my Yakima bike rack.
