Replacement Cradle Strap For Older Thule Bike Carrier


Im looking for a replacement strap for a Thule 2 bike rear rack that s into a trailer hitch. The straps are square holed and I believe there a 5 positions. I cant find them in your parts listing.

I called Thule and asked about the strap that has 5 square holes for your bike rack. They told me the strap has been discontinued. They said the cradle would need to be replaced and then a different strap can be used with the new cradle. The cradle they said that can be used is part # 853-5829. The strap that will work with this cradle is part # 753-3535.

We have another option for you. If you measure the hole size and the distance between the holes we may have a strap that will work for you. We do not have any straps that have only 5 holes but a strap with more holes may work just fine for you.

One of the straps you can check out is part # 05002200000. Another strap you can take a look at is part # HRSTP735. I have attached photos of these straps and the photos have the dimensions noted for comparison.
