Cannot Loosen Knob on the Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack Part # TH9027  


Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack # TH9027 lock knob spins off. When locked it will tighten but it no longer loosens. It just simply spins off the spindle and now rack is stuckinch in receiver . Did I over tighten?


Expert Reply:

The locking knob on your Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack part # TH9027XT will be loose while it is locked and tight when it is unlocked. By tight, I mean there is a considerable amount of force needed to turn it so do not be afraid to roll up the sleeves and give it a few good hard turns. With that being said I believe there is just a bit of confusion as to when the knob is locked or not so it appears everything is in order but if this is not correct then please get back to me and I will provide some troubleshooting advice.

If it turns out that the knob is indeed damaged then you can use the Replacement Locking Anti-Rattle Knob part # 753-0073 to replace it.
