Video Transcript for Yakima Hitch Bike Racks Y8890297 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the replacement zip strip straps for the Yakima standard bike rack cradles. This is for a quantity of two. This set of zip strips will replace the lost or damaged straps for the Yakima standard anti-sway cradles. These are nice hassle-free zip strip straps that'll secure your bike to the bike rack and they are fully removable. They are designed to fit the Yakima hitch-mounted bike carriers that utilize these zip strips and that would be the Ridgeback that are manufactured before 2016, the Swing Daddy, which is manufactured before 2016, the Full Tilt and the Full Swing. This part does include the two replacement straps and then just for a demonstration purpose, I happened to pull, here's what the anti-sway cradle would be like on those bike racks. The way the zip strips would work as you can see, you just insert it right over like that, push it all the way in, and push it down as far as you need to to tighten your bike to the cradle.

Then to release it, all you have to do is push in on these, and it's fully removable. Comes right out. That includes two of them, because you can use one for the anti-sway cradle portion also. Again, you just adjust them by pushing them in. Push these levers in and you pull it out as far as you need or completely all the way out. That should do it for the review on the replacement zip strip straps for the Yakima standard bike rack cradles, quantity of two..

These bike racks are extremely easy to use (mount and demount bike); only problem is i often missplace these tie downs. I even recommended the rack to a friend recently who bought one. TTB

I bought a used Full Swing Rack that was missing a few parts. The Yakima Website was out of them all (and according to other reviews on their site, had been so for several months), and Yakima didn't have a date on when they expected to get them in. etrailer had the parts available, with one exception, these ZipStrips. etrailer had given me an expected ship date of a week out from when I placed my order. A month later, and after the trip I needed the parts for, my order shipped. The main problem I have with etrailer, is that they held the entire order until this part was in. I could have worked around these straps, but really needed the SpeedKnob they were sitting on, until the entire order was filled. However, etrailer still gets 4 stars, because they are the only place on the internet (including Yakima) that sells these (they are discontinued) and they aren't trying to gouge you on the price. As for the Strips themselves, they fit perfectly.


Comments
Thank you for your review. In order to get the free shipping, your entire order ships at the same time. If you wanted the other parts sooner, you would have to pay for shipping.

I have had many Yakima products over the years. Their product line and customer service are top notch. Most of the items I have ordered from etrailer. These ZipStrip straps were hard to find but etrailer had them in stock. They are sturdy and hold my bikes securely in place. Easy to use and beat the homemade tie downs I had been using on my rack.



- Y8890297
by:

Zip straps for this older model bike rack were near impossible to locate and I had no spares. Other Yakima zip straps looked similar, but closer examination showed they would not work. etrailer to the rescue.They had aphoto of the correct product and took the order. Although the product did not arrive from China for months, Carol at etrailer, kept me in the loop with regular updates up until the shipping.



- Y8890297
by:

We waited 8 months to get the part and it does not fit the bike rack. They made the strip thicker than the original ones and you cannot get the replacement ones to fit into the area they are supposed to fit into.


Comments
Thanks for your review. I would need to know if you have an older or newer version of Ridgeback. If you are not sure, the standard zipstrip cradles have a grey release button but the supercush newer cradles have a black release button. Bike racks manufactured after Dec 2015 have to use these straps: Part # 8880566

These zip strips do not work on the newer Yakima Full Tilt bike racks. (I bought the rack this year) After doing some more research on the Yakima site, I believe the newer Full Tilt bike rack require the super crush zip strips. Online e-trailer description for what racks these fit is not correct (although the customer service rep said she would correct this description). Do extensive research before purchasing these to see if they will fit your rack. DOES NOT FIT FULL TILT RACK. Fast shipping and good customer service.


Comments
Yakima FullTilt bike racks made after 2016 will use the newer ZipStrip for SuperCrush Cradles 8880566.

These straps were out of stock everywhere but etrailer helped me determine the straps I needed and backordered them for me. Great customer service!

Super quick service, a very reasonable price and terrific communication -- what else could you ask for? All superior to [online store] in my opinion. Thanks, you have become my go-to supplier for all things bike trailer.



- Y8890297
by:

Although there was a lengthy delay in the delivery (suppliers issues not e trailer),I was kept informed and constantly updated on the progress. This slight bump in the road will not discourage me from ordering from e trailer in the future. Thank you again for offering high quality merchandise.



- Y8890297
by:

Very helpful staff made sure I was ordering the right product. They kept me updated on the shipping timeline and followed up after delivery to be sure all was well. The product is just what I need. Excellent! I highly recommend etrailer!!



- Y8890297
by:

It took a while to get these ZipStrips because of the Covid economy, but etrailer came through and eventually got them. Thanks.

Great replacement straps. Don’t leave them on your rack in a public space or you might need to come back to buy more! May karma get the suckers who steal these.



- Y8890297
by:

These are much thinner than the original Yakama straps. I would be reluctant to use them since my bike is very important to me.


Comments
This may be because these straps are universal to all of these Yakima racks: FullSwing Y02465 RidgeBack Y02457, Y02458, and Y02459 SwingDaddy Y02464

Ordered these zip strips from website which said they were the correct ones for my Yakima Ridgeback2 rack. They are the wrong size. Apparently they fit racks manufactured prior to 2016, mine was manufactured in 2017. The size of the teeth on the zip strip changed on the newer racks. No way to know that when ordering them. Old part #8899257, newer part #8880566. I had to contact Yakima Customer Service myself to find all this out. I was told the receiver for the zip strip is grey on the older mfg rack and black on the newer racks. Etrailer is checking to see if they can just send me the correct ones. It would have saved a lot of hassle if the website made that distinction for ordering parts.


Comments
That is correct Colette, the older Yakima Ridgeback that was produced before 2015 has a gray release button, and the newer version has a black release button.

I love my Yakima spare tire bike rack , but the straps are absolutely needed for the best operation . These do exactly that, and e trailer quickly shipped them to me. Thanks , e trailer !

Buying these zip strips directly from Yakima was extremely expensive. I looked at the same item on the 'big box' online site and then found it for even less on etrailer.com. The shipping was fast and I received emails along the way with updates. I receive a genuine Yakima zip strip in the manufacturer's original bag/packaging, and it fit my FullSwing bike rack perfectly. Now I have 3-4 extras in case I ever lose one.



- Y8890297

We had a need for some extra pieces to our Yakima 6 bike hitch trailer. Etrailer was accommodating and quick, friendly and thorough. We would definitely do business again.



- Y8890297
by:

I wanted a bike rack that I could handle without tools [I'm 70+]; that did what it said it would do, hold bikes securely without a lot of fuss, and that looked good. This product met all my criteria. I like the way it can be pulled back to access the trunk. The only con I have and, it's nothing major, is that the tape used to spell Yakima can be rubbed loose by the bike pedal. A recessed or engraved name would be preferable. That being said I love my rack.


Comments
I still love it. Just wish the zip strips weren so easy to lose.

Thanks for your email. I did receive the clips but it seems to be thicker then the original ones and I they will not fit since they are too thick. Not sure if there is a different model number for the clips that are thinner or not. But I can't use the ones that I received????


Comments
Which hitch mounted Yakima bike rack do you have?
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 02/05/2019

Comments
I have a Yakima Ridgeback. Just looking at the zip clips and noticed there are two different models but didn’t realized it when I ordered.
-- comment by: Cary - 02/05/2019


Comments
If your Yakima ridgeback bike rack was manufactured before 2016 and the zip strip release button on the cradle is gray you will need these strips part # Y8890297. If your Yakima ridgeback bike rack was manufactured after 2016 and the zip strip release button on the cradle is black you will need part # 8880566

After losing my bag full of zip straps for my Yakima Swing Daddy bike rack, I found just the replacements I needed through etrailer. They were a tremendous help in getting me just what I needed.


Comments
My zip straps are still securely holding my bikes in place on my awesome swing daddy rack. I have managed not to lose them but if I do, etrailer will once again bail me out!!!
