Replacement Anti-Rattle Knob for the Thule Apex XT

Question:

Hello! I was given this bike rack but instead of the anti-rattle knob, I just have a bolt. What would be involved in setting up the anti rattle system?

We have the replacements for the knob of your Thule Apex XT, part # TH9024XT, here.

For the knob itself, you will need the Replacement Locking Knob for Thule Bike Racks, part # TH79JV. I've linked to a video review of this below.

Since you didn't have this to begin with, you will also need the One-Key System Lock Cylinders, part # TH450200. I've linked to a video review of this, too.

If you still need additional components, let me know. These are the only available.

Thanks so much for this!! The video was the most detail I’ve been able to find. I might be out of luck, I just have a hex bolt. I thought it would be nice to have something that I could install/uninstall by hand... do you have any recommendations?

We do have a tool-free anti-rattle bolt that is made for Thule bike racks.

It's the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Thule Bike Racks, part # SHP2083. This has a built-in lever for tightening the bolt. It's not as easy as the knob for the Apex XT, but at least it is tool-free. It includes a lock, also.

I've linked to a video review of this as well.
