Availability of Replacement Cradle Straps for Thule Helium 3-Bike Rack


Hi, are the Thule straps part #753-3535 the same dimensions/specs as #752-0947-001? I have a Thule Helium 3 bike carrier, and from what I understand it uses a T3 cradle, so #753-3535 should fit I just want to verify. #752-0947-001 is made specifically for the Helium. But if #753-3535 works with my rack, then Id rather purchase that part since itll save me a little money because Ill need 4-6. Thanks!

Actually, the correct strap for your Thule Helium is less expensive than either of the straps you mentioned.

If you have the older Thule Helium, part # TH971, it used a now discontinued strap, part number 853-5834. The newer Thule Helium Aero, part # TH9043 uses the # 852-3006-001 replacement strap. The good news is the # 852-3006-001 will also fit the older model.
