Video Transcript for Swagman Bike Carriers Pin and Tether Replacement Review

Hey there, Swagman owners. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Replacement Pin and Tether for Swagman XC and XC2 Bike Racks. The pin and tether is one of the most important parts of your Swagman bike rack. If you find yours is missing, you're definitely going to want a replacement. That is the piece that allows our masts to operate, it allows our arms to fold down so we can have our platform, and it also allows our mast to fold down either side, granting us access to our rear hatch.Now, something that actually did happen to me was I drove through a carwash with my bike rack on, and one of these got torn off, unfortunately, and I have to replace it. Another thing that our customers commonly report is that they get rusty and can come off, or this ball detent here can lose its functionality, and the pin just wants to slide freely, which is no good either.

You want it to be secure in there. So those are some of the reasons you might need to replace it. But we're missing ours right here today. I'm going to go ahead and show you how to replace it.I recommend you do this with your mast down, so it doesn't fall and hit you in the head. You will need a 14 millimeter socket and wrench to undo this bolt.

Once you get it loose, you can kind of get it by hand. You'll want to lift up and pull out a little here. Let's go ahead and loosen it the rest of the way. Once we get that out, we can take our loop at the end, then it goes over the bolt and it's going to secure back in place. And again, we'll take that 14 millimeter socket and wrench and tighten it back down.

You want to get it tight, but not so tight that your arm can't pivot still because you will still need to have your arm be able to pivot. That's kind of the point of this is that once your arm is pivoted up, it can go in place and lock it in place.Now we've got our bike rack back to working order. We can load up some bikes and hit the road. And that completes our look at the Replacement Pin and Tether for Swagman XC and XC2 Bike Racks.

Great company very prompt with getting order to me.
They have helped me with keeping
my bike rack in great shape.



by:

I received just what I ordered. I was able to find my part on their web site and was able to get the exact part that I needed. This pin held my bike racks stabilizer erect.
I had lost the old one and had to have this to steady my bikes. Received the pat in about 5 days. I would definitely order from them again.

Works just like the original one that it replaced.



by:

Quick delivery. Love the finish on the pins. Maybe they won't rust like the originals. Makes the bike rack on our RV look good again and easy to swing the arms up and down for storage.

I ordered replacement pins and tethers for my bike rack. Cost and shipping were reasonable, products arrived very quickly, and were an exact replacement for my rusted-out old ones.

Could not ask for better products or service.

Five stars!

Still working perfectly.



by:

this is the place to go to if there's anything - trailer hitch and trailer parts, automotive, bike accessories, campers, and if you have any questions just give them a call, they have experts ready & willing to help you find whatever it is you need. I called and asked Greg S a question about a small part on my swagman bike rack, he checked (video) and found what I needed and took down info and all that took about 10-15 minutes and then sent me an email about when i could expect it, tracking number etc..2 days later I received another email telling me he saw that it had been delivered. *** done deal from start to finish. etrailer will definitely be my go to place to check first



by:

I have gotten replacement parts for my Swagman bike rack three different times now from etrailer.com. Every time I have received the correct part by mail very quickly and every part is still in good shape on my bike rack. Etrailer.com is great at what they do!



by:

I bought replacement hardware for a hitch-mount bike rack. etrailer shipped the correct parts quickly, and those parts have held up well thru the past riding season. A recommended vendor!

Perfectly



by:

I've owned a Swagman XTC bike rack for several years. I'm hard on it - I four-wheel into the high country, the desert, and the snow carrying my bikes. As parts wear, ETrailer allows me to replace them without replacing the whole rack. I've made several purchases from them, and they are always very communicative and helpful. They don't make much money off me, but they are still very helpful.

Thanks guys!



by:

I am impressed by the quick delivery and follow-up by etrailer. The item I ordered is an easy replacement for the original pin whose tether broke after years of use. Replacing the pin and installing the tether was an easy operation. This is the second time I have ordered Swagman parts from etrailer, and I highly recommend the bike rack and the excellent customer service.

Locking pins for a Swagman bike rack. It is well made, looks and feels solid and works perfectly. Price was also very reasonable considering the quality of the item.



by:

I replaced the original pin and tether on my Swagman rack - the old one just wore out. It is better than the old one, and does the job. We have enjoyed our rack for years, and with a few replacements parts, we will enjoy it for many more years to come.



by:

This part wore out on my bike rack, and this replacement worked perfectly. Much happier to be able to get parts like this vs. sending the whole bike rack to the landfills.



by:

WE received the product ordered and is just what we needed! Anna at etrailer was excellent on keeping us informed about the order being back ordered but the progress of the backordering! She is a great asset to your company!! Thank you!



by:

I think they should have made the pins out of stainless steel they have become very rusty. The entire bike rack is rusty. Needs to be made out of material that doesn't rust if possible



by:

I needed a few spare parts for the bike rack I bought a couple of years ago. The etrailer web site was easy to navigate to find what I wanted.

Shipping was amazingly quick. I place my order in the morning and that afternoon rec'd an email that the items were being shipped. The package arrive two days later. Excellent service!



by:

Great service and follow up. Just needed an accessory for my bike rack, was able to find it easily on the webpage, and the follow up from the company/staff was great.

etrailer is a fantastic supplier and all orders filled ASAP I will go to no other dealer when purchasing lights, parts etc;

I needed a replacement pin for the o e that was lost from my Swagman bike rack and this one for perfectly.



by:

Products arrived quickly. Needed a couple parts for a used bike rack I purchased. This is my go to place for bike rack, trailer parts etc. Etrailer carries parts that you'll have a hard time finding anywhere else.



by:

The replacement pin and tether for the Sesgman XC2 Bike carrier fit performed perfectly.

I agree with you that this is not acceptable. It is not our policy to ship used or damaged items as new. I will make sure that someone at customer service reaches out to you soon. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We would hate for it to be left like this.
