Video Transcript for Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Y8890151 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the replacement upper strap for the Yakima King Joe trunk line of bike racks. This replaces a lost or damaged upper strap for your Yakima King Joe trunk-mounted bike carriers. The part number includes the strap, the hook, and the buckle.So the hook and the buckle are designed to ensure a snug fit on the vehicle. The hook is made from steel, and features a vinyl coating to keep it from scratching your vehicle's paint and finish.And then the buckle is a cinch buckle, so that allows you to pull the strap tight, but it doesn't allow it to back-feed, unless you press the release lever. That buckle is steel as well, protect the finishing on it to keep it safe from rust and corrosion. And then it also has a rubber casing, so if it comes into contact with your vehicle, bike rack, or bike, it's not going to cause any harm.And then right here, we have the strap keeper.

So any excess or extra strap that you have, you can roll up, fit it into the keeper, and that's going to keep it from flapping in the wind as you go down the road.Now this is designed for Yakima King Joe 2 or King Joe 3 trunk-mounted bike racks. It also fits the discontinued Yakima products, the Mighty Joe 2 and the Mighty Joe 3 bike carriers.That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement upper strap for the Yakima King Joe trunk-mounted bike racks.

Replacement Upper Strap for Yakima KingJoe Trunk Mounted Bike Carrier - Y8890151

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (22 Customer Reviews)

This replacement strap kit includes one upper replacement strap for a Yakima KingJoe 2 or KingJoe 3 trunk-mounted bike carrier. Strap has hook and buckle to help ensure snug fit to vehicle trunk.


These straps are different from my original King Joe 2 straps, which came with sewn loops. The package came with no instructions. I contacted etrailer customer support and they were unable to help me and referred me to Yakima. Yakima's support person mused that etrailer might have sent me the wrong straps, then stopped replying to my follow up emails. I went to a local bike rack dealer who couldn't figure it out either. In the end I bought a new bike rack. If I could give this product a zero star rating I would.

This is the correct replacement strap for the King Joe 2 bike rack, according to Yakima. I will have Customer Service reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Thomas M - 12/10/2021


The issue with this particular replacement strap is that it requires you to have an industrial sewing machine on hand. Which I don't have. This is due to the poor original design of the upper strap for this bike rack, where the strap threads through a slot in the hub, and is sewn together to make a loop. There is no way for a normal customer to replace it. The solution perhaps would be to provide a second buckle along with the provided second piece of nylon strapping. That said, this is a standard Yakima replacement part, so it's not etrailer's fault. A secondary complaint is that these replacement parts do not come with any instructions whatsoever. When I called customer service, there isn't anyone there that is familiar with this rack or this issue - which is not all that surprising, given that this model is so old. (Which is why I needed replacement straps!) So the bottom line is, you can replace half the upper strap, but it still leaves the old sewn-on strap as the weak link. I should mention that the quality/materials of the item are very good, as far as it goes.


This worked for me because the only part I needed to replace was the part with the hook. If I had had to replace the other part, I am not sure how I would have sewed the strap into a loop -- no instructions were provided.


I acquired a very used Yakima trunk trailer from a friend, but it was missing the two top straps. These replacements were so easy to find, and the shipping was very fast! Thanks for offering great support of your products, even when they're no longer in production!


It looks real good. The strap is much heavier than the one I have on my bike rack, which is not a Yakima King Joe. I will feel much safer using your straps. Thanks.


Great replacement for my upper straps on my King Joe Pro 3. Also came with new cams, which need to be sewn on or use a mechanical buckle of sorts. Grate product and fast shipping!!


Works good, nice quality,

It still works really great, such a great quality comparing with other brands so it was an awesome investment

No instructions included in the box on the type of thread needed to sew the strap of the buckle onto the bike rack. I just clicked the instructions link on your feedback page and I got a message indicating no instructions are available.

The video makes no mention of the need to sew the buckle on the bike rack.


The replacement part was the right size and fit. It is working properly with no visible UV deterioration.

The replacement strap is working flawlessly
