Replacement Fork Skewer for Thule Roof-Mount Tandem Bike Rack TH558


I have a Thule 558 tandem rack and have always used a yakima locking skewer. Im switching all my racks and locks to thule and have lock cores that all match. It looks like two thule skewers might work, the thruride replacement skewer TH535SKR, and the regular replacement skewer 752-0943-001. In the photos, the thruride looks like the flip handle is a little heavier duty. In your opinion, does one seem more durable than the other? will they both work on the 558? Thanks for your help!

The correct replacement fork skewer for the Thule roof-mount Tandem Bike Rack # TH558P is their part # 8535256. The other skewers you referenced, parts # TH535SKR and # 752-0943-001, are not recommended for the Tandem, according to my contact at Thule. ThruRide Fork Adapter # TH535SKR is not a fit for the Tandem at all and skewer # 752-0943-001 has not been tested with the Tandem.
