Video Transcript for Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti Rattle Device Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti Rattle Device, Part Number THSTL2. The Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock is going to replace your existing Anti Rattle Device with a Locking Anti Rattle Device. It works great as an upgrade or to replace a missing hitch lock. It's going to work on both 1 1/4 inch and 2 inch Thule Hitch Mounted Racks. It's very easy to install and it comes with 2 keys. Now that we got all the features, let me go ahead and show you how to get it installed. We've already got our Thule Vertex Bike Rack installed in our receiver. Let's get started. Now let's grab our lock and our locking core. It does come with a locking core.

They are changeable if you'd like to key it alike to your other Thule accessories. We'll just open it up. We'll grab our master key, put that in, then we'll line up our notches, put it in place and then we'll want to hold onto it, pull it out . Then we can take our key and make sure we've got it in there correctly. Now, with our locking core installed, we can go ahead and grab our anti rattle bolt. This is simply just going to replace your old anti rattle bolt on your bike rack. You want to make sure that the pin holes are lined up.

Go ahead and insert that, get that hand-tightened . Then we can take our included tool and tighten it the rest of the way down. Once we've got that all the way tight, we can take our lock, put it in place, turn it to make sure it's locked, then put on our dust cap and then we've got it. The bike rack is not going anywhere. That's going to complete our look at the Thule Snug Tight Hitch Lock and Anti Rattle Device, Part Number THSTL2.

Product order/delivery experience was outstanding. Product is definitely to carry my two bikes safely. Assembly was easy and fits on my new truck just fine. The shipment contained all three items that were ordered all coming in one box with a label clearly showing content of shipment.... so nice to not have anything missing. Out of the box in just a few minutes and passed my test drive.... solid fit, no rattles, and looks pretty good too! I purchased the Snug Site Hitch Lock and Anti Rattle Device Bike Adaptor Bar for my wife's bike. Very satisfied! 339375

It sucks that Thule does not include this with the $400 rack they sell but well worth the additional cost and ease of mind knowing that it's now locked in place. Secures just like the original bolt, only now it's secured. Draw back is I have two keys, one to lock the rack to the car and the second for locking the bikes to the rack. 567350

Easy to install and provides level of security desired. Last thing I want is someone to steal my bike rack and this product is perfect to deter theft. 80856


Comments

Thanks for following up - impressive.The products I bought from etrailer are great. The rack turned out to be quite the attraction as I had several people see me with it in use and come over to see how it works and ask where did I get it. Hopefully you received some orders from some of the people I referred to etrailer.The products I purchased and your service is great.

Anything Thule makes is well constructed. This little lock is no exception. It is easy to install and locks the bolt in place that holds the carrier in your two inch trailer hitch. The shaft is on the long side, protruding a couple of inches or more beyond the framework. But, due to its location it would be difficult, but not impossible to saw off. And a word about the website, when you view the page of the product you are looking at, you will see a row of windows below with other products that are similar but not necessarily compatible. I made the mistake of ordering a lock that was incompatible with the bike rack I ordered. In other words, TMI. Returns. Hassle. But etrailer.com exchanged the lock and I ordered the right one. 551684

I've ordered from etrailer.com three times over the past two years and I am very satisfied with the products and their services. This past order I was looking for a particular trailer hitch lock and they helped me find it with no trouble. I would highly recommend etrailer and I expect to use them in future. 136744

Good lock. When tightened down, it really locks the hitch and rack together. Driving down the road, I noticed no shake at all - even going over some low grade bumps. Of course you can use the bolt Thule furnishes to lock it down if you don't want the anti-theft protection. I would have rated it "Excellent" except for the cost. Surely 50 bucks is overpriced! - BUT, it does the job 146478

Both the rack and the lock are working quite well. The rack is a quality product and I enjoy using it.

Ordered the Draw-Tite 24763 for my 2015 Honda Civic Sedan, and was very satisfied at the speed and detail of not only the correspondence and email between etrailer.com but also the shipping speed and condition of packaging. I received this in six days from start to finish of order. I did not spring for faster shipping and was satisfied with this type of time frame considering the size and weight of packaging. I also got the Thule Hitching Post TH934XTR four bike rack and THSTL2 hitch lock anti-rattle device. I had planned ahead by watching all of the great videos on etrailer and printed out some instructions from the site. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised with their attention to detail that this was unnecessary as they included a copy of the same instructions I printed in the box. The install went exactly like the instructions/videos said it would and if I hadn't been interested in getting the beauty plastic underbody piece back on I could have been done in fifteen minutes with a lift and another set of hands. All in all a very easy kit to install, and thanks to etrailer for the speed, quality, and including all the necessary hardware and instructions. 5/5 would definitely do business with again and recommend. 269804

The Thule Snug -Tite Receiver Lock was delivered in 3 business days. It was very easy to assemble and to secure the Thule rack into the trailer hitch on my vehicle. The receiver lock appears to be very secure without any rattle or looseness. I am pleased with the products I have received through my order with etrailer. 389945

Its been working good after a year, but the end cap over the lock with the Thule name comes off very easily and can be lost.

I had been looking at racks awhile and knew what I wanted. Frankly found etrailer through a random search. Having said that the ordering platform was easy to navigate and the product was delivered as advertised and on time. Having someone follow-up to check on my satisfaction is a nice touch. Should I need additional accessories I won't hesitate to return. 386811

For reasons unknown, Thule manufactures the TH958 Parkway bike rack to attach to a standard 2" hitch with a bolt that only goes halfway through the business end of the slinger. This lock unit also only threads halfway though and you affix the keyed end on the left hand side of the TH958. This works particularly well, if you are left handed. Why the TH958 was not tapped out throughout is problematic, because if it was, then you could place the lock on the left, or, if you are right-handed, on the right. The THSTL2 does protect the slinger section from being taken. However, this leaves the pivot section and the arm assembly vulnerable. Both sections are are affixed with hex screws and bolts that can easily be removed with two crescent wrenches. In order to remedy the situation forget the bolts and make the attachments with the hex screws and invest in a couple of stainless steel wingnuts. In order to make sure your unit will stay yours be best prepared to break down the rack and store it inside your vehicle. The wingnuts will make the chore easier. At 44 bucks and change it is not worth it. Perhaps Thule will one day address these issues. In the meantime, caveat emptor. 79154


Comments

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review here Bill. The reason behind the shorter bolt is that all the bolt-in Thule hitch mounted carriers have a nut welded to the inside of the stinger portion that s into the receiver and this bolt only needs to pass through that nut to snug this up in the receiver. We found that with a longer bolt there is too much redundant tightening if the bolt were to pass all the way through, that is also why the STL2 bolt is not fully threaded. As for the locking features, these are intended to deter any theft or vandalism, as with all locks.

Decide last year to go with a trailer hitch bike rack. We had other strap-ons but they were all terrible. The actual hitch was easy to install, according to my husband. He and a friend attached it with no difficulty. As I have a Subaru Outback, I bought the specific one indicated and worked great. As for the Thule bike rack, we could not be happier. So easy to use and solid! No movement on the bikes at all. Our son lives in New Orleans La. and we spent 2 weeks with him over the Christmas/New Year holidays. He had a bike trail close to his house and then we went north to another beautiful trail. 3000 miles round trip and the bikes and rack didn't so much as "blip" on the ride. We checked the bikes and racks when we stopped and never were we concerned about safety. We always had the bike locks in place, but we were not concerned bikes or the rack would be a problem. I have been approached by people asking if I liked the rack and where did I purchase it? I give praise to e-trailer for their products and customer service, always recommending them. Looking forward to another season of biking and using the rack! 374860

Well, the item shipped easily and that went fine. Unfortunately, it came with all the pieces shown above but with no instructions of how to assemble the lock to be functional. I've hunted to find YouTube instructions, so far without success. May be easy for THEM to understand, but sure didn't work for me. 646922

Product is great, works well, easy to install and remove. A huge shout out to etrailer.com, though. I had previously purchased the Thule Hitching Post bike rack for the smaller hitch on my Civic, but when I upgraded my vehicle to a CRV, my new trailer hitch was too large for the bike rack. No worries, I thought, as my Thule bike rack came with a 2 inch hitch adapter. Unfortunately, while I had the adapter, I couldn't find the screw to attach it to the bike rack nor the hitch pin to attach it to the hitch. I don't even remember if it came with them, to be honest. I went to many hardware and auto stores looking for a bolt long enough to secure it to my hitch but couldn't find anything that worked. So, defeated and not even knowing WHAT I needed to search for (Thule's website wasn't helpful at all), I found this exchange: https://www.etrailer.com/question-289912.html which ended up being exactly what I needed! I ordered both the replacement screw and this hitch pin and they both work great. So, thanks etrailer.com, I probably would still be looking if I hadn't stumbled upon you! 644388

I am so impressed with etrailer.com This business has exceeded my expectations on several occasions. This time, I learned on Mother's Day and my son had taken the locking hitch mount for our bike rack and lost it making my bike rack unusable. We were going for a family bike ride and I was frustrated beyond measure. I immediately got on the etrailer site and found the replacement parts and ordered them. 4 days later the parts were in a package in my mailbox. I am totally impressed. 642574

  • Does Thule Hitching Post Pro Fit on a 2017 Honda CR-V
  • The Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR is a great bike rack for your 2017 Honda CR-V. We've actually test fit the rack on a CR-V just like yours. I've linked the video for you. The Hitching Post Pro will carry 4 bikes up to 35 pounds each. It tilts away from the vehicle and, as you can see in the video, provides enough clearance to open the rear hatch of the CR-V. A locking hitch pin can be added to the rack using # THSTL2. Since you're going to be carrying children's bikes on the...

  • It sounds like you are looking for a hanging-style bike rack that can be extended from a 2-bike model to a 4-bike model, and vise versa. The best option for a hanging-style rack will be to simply go with a 4-bike model, such as the excellent Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR, then only use the inner most cradles when transporting just 2 bikes. There is not a hanging-style rack currently available that can be physically converted from a 4-bike design to a 2-bike. The Thule Hitching...

Looks like that rack is installed in a RV hitch. You should note that Thule does not rate their bike racks for use at the rear of an RV due to the much rougher ride quality. I know that's not what you asked about but it's important that you know that.

The bike carrier # TH9056 is also a great fit for your vehicle. This carrier can hold four bikes that weigh up to 37-1/2 lbs each. For added security you can purchase the hitch lock part # THSTL2 that secures the bike carrier to the trailer hitch. If you are planning on carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or...

  • Recommended Economic 4 Bike Rack for 2018 Toyota Highlander XLE
  • There are lots of options for bike racks compatible with your 2018 Toyota Highlander XLE. My recommendation is to go with a platform style rack that will tilt for cargo area clearance and fold close to the vehicle when not in use. Hitch pin location is key, but your Highlander won't have any issue with most bike racks because the hitch pin hole is not extremely far back from the outer bumper. My recommendation for you is the Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Platform Style...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • For your 2014 Mazda CX-5, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76138. This is a Class III trailer hitch that is confirmed to fit your vehicle. As you referenced in your question, a Class II hitch will absolutely work in terms of its weight capacity to transport up to 3 bikes. The reason I recommend going with a Class III hitch, considering that you will likely never come close to reaching its weight capacities, is because of the 2 inch receiver that it provides....

  • Replacement Threaded Screw and Pin for Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR
  • If you are needing the Flat Cap Screw that holds the adapter on the shank of the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR, then you are needing part # 853-5787-02. If what you are needing is the replacement threaded pin for the Hitching Post Pro then you will need part # 853-5917. You can use the Ratchet with 3/4 inch Socket # PT20104-38524 to tighten the anti-rattle bolt down. This is a convenient thing to just keep in your rear cargo area so you don't have to go hunt down a wrench or...

  • Recommended Hitch Bike Carrier for 2017 Kia Sportage
  • The best way to transport bikes on a passenger car is usually with a hitch-mounted rack, like the Thule Hitching Post Pro you referenced, part # TH934XTR. A video on this rack is linked for you. A hitch rack places the weight load of the rack and bikes on the vehicle's frame, its strongest part, instead of on its relatively light sheet metal the way trunk-mount racks do. For a new vehicle I definitely suggest you go for a hitch rack. This will provide the safest transport for your bikes...

  • Replacement Parts for Old Thule Roadway 912 Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
  • We still carry the Thule Roadway # TH912XTR. This is a very well made bike carrier that Thule still allows us to carry. To secure your bike rack in your receiver, you will want the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device # THSTL2 for a locking option or just the replacement pin # 853-5917. For your cradles, I recommend the Replacement Stay-Put Cradle for Thule Roadway Bike Carriers # 853-7887 you mentioned and the Replacement Anti-Sway Cage # 853-7758. These cradles will...

  • Replacement Adapter For Thule Hitching Post Pro Bike Rack And 2 Inch Receiver
  • For your Thule Hitching Post Pro - Folding Tilting 4 Bike Rack w Anti-Sway - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # TH934XTR, it sounds like you are missing the 2 inch hitch adapter. This adapter is the Replacement 2" Hitch Adapter for Thule Doubletrack, Hitching Post Pro, or Vertex Racks - Qty 1 # 853-7489 you referenced. You will also want the Replacement M6 x 16mm Flat Cap Screw for Thule Bike Carriers # 853-5787-02 to secure that adapter in place. If you don't already have it, I recommend the...

  • Best Trunk-Mount 3-Bike Rack for 2018 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • Hatch-mount bike carriers for your 2018 Mazda 3 Hatchback are available in 2-bike and 3-bike capacities. No 4-bike trunk racks are made since they would simply be too heavy for a car's sheet metal trunk or hatch. If you can get by with a 3-bike capacity then the rack I recommend is the Thule Raceway PRO 3, part # TH9002PRO. This USA-made carrier is among the best trunk racks made. It features molded nylon construction that is strong yet lightweight; built-in locks are included for the...

This is the only compatible hitch pin and lock available for Thule bike racks. The # 853-5917 you referenced is the replacement pin for this lock set.

  • Will EcoHitch Trailer Hitch Fit a 2016 Kia Sorento with Full Size Spare
  • I spoke with my contact at EcoHtch and they said that since they only test fit the trailer hitch # 306-X7320 with the OEM spare tire (donut) they wouldn't be able to confirm if it will fit the larger tire that you have. The other trailer hitches, like the etrailer.com # E98843, have more of a width issue but since the EcoHitch has a higher crossmember I believe that the larger diameter of your spare will be an issue. If you like the hidden look of the EcoHitch and you still have your...

  • Weight of Swagman Trailhead, Swagman Titan, Thule Roadway and Kuat Beta Bike Racks
  • The Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack # TH912XTR weighs approximately 35 lbs, the Swagman Titan 2 Bike Rack # S63400 weighs approximately 33 lbs and the Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Rack # S63360 weighs about 27 lbs. These are each quality bike racks and should be manageable but if you are looking for a truly lightweight, easy-to-use hanging bike rack you may also want to consider the Kuat Beta which weighs 12.6 lbs. It is available for 2 inch hitches # B202-2 and 1-1/4 inch hitches # B202-114. Additionally,...

  • Selecting Hitch for 2007 Subaru Outback Wagon with Dual Exhaust for Use with Hitch Bike Rack
  • For your 2007 Subaru Outback Wagon with dual exhaust we offer two sizes/classes of trailer hitch, all of which are displayed on the linked page. We always recommend the higher-capacity 2-inch Class III type whenever there is a choice since it will offer a higher tongue weight (TW) rating, which is really what matters when using a hitch-mounted accessory such as a hitch bike rack like the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR or hitch cargo carrier like # 63153. The 2-inch Class III hitch...

  • Replacement Hitch Pin for the Thule Hitching Post Pro
  • The Thule Goalpost part # TH997 is not a bike rack but rather a hitch mounted load bar/extender. If you can send me a picture of your bike rack then I would be able to help you identify which model you have. However, I believe what you are referring to is the Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR If this is the case then the adapter you would have got from Thule is part # 853-7489. For this adapter, you will need part # 853-5787-02 to attach it to the singer on your bike rack and part...

  • Will Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack Work with Fat Bike Tire with Slanted Frame
  • The Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack # TH912XTR referenced in your question is a nice, hanging-style rack that features dual arms to support the bike's frame. Since your bike's frame doesn't run in a straight line from the seat post to the handlebar post, you likely will just need an adapter bar like the Kuat # UB01. This will attach to the bike's frame and provide a horizontal attachment point so that it can ride level. The issue with your bike's frame is that it will cause the rear tire to hang...
