Video Transcript for Swagman XTC Series Bike Carriers Wheel Hoop Replacement Rubber Strap Review

Hey, everyone. It's Evangeline here at etrailer. And today, we're taking a look at our replacement straps for your Swagman platform bike racks here at We have this installed on our Swagman XTC TILT. But you can also check out our product page to see if it'll work with your bike rack. As long as they have straps and as long as they have the tabs there, this will work as a replacement part.

Maybe over time, you get some wear and tear of your strap, or it's been out in the sun a little bit too long, or exposed to the elements and it's tough and hard, that's when you replace your strap. So, you just take it off of its old tab, get your new strap. You can actually pick and choose which tab you want to use. I prefer on the inside so that I pull outwards and that's it. You we're able to replace your strap for your Swagman bike rack.

But if you have other parts that need replacing, we have those here at I'm gonna show you how to install them as well as how to figure out what is the right part that you need. But this right here was a look at the replacement strap for your Swagman XTC series like bike racks at

Replacement Rubber Strap for Wheel Hoop on Swagman XTC Series Bike Carriers - P308

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (133 Customer Reviews)

Ensure that all your bikes are safely secured in the wheel hoops of your Swagman XTC Series rack by replacing a lost or damaged rubber strap. The rubber strap attaches to any wheel hoop on the XTC 2- or 4-bike rack.


These straps were purchased for a bike carrier I am making, not replacing an OE item. Strap serves same purpose. It stretches too easily and the mount hole distorts quickly with very little pull. I thought they would be stiffer


I received the Swagman straps within 6 days of me ordering them. Customer service was very helpful. Straps are of premium rubber, easy to attach to my Swagman bike rack. They provide superb bike stability.


In spite of the supply chain issues, the team at eTrailer stayed in touch, keeping us updated, and fulfilled our order. A+ customer service!



A year in, the part has been great - it looks and performs like new, even after being exposed to the elements all year long. Great product and excellent customer service.


Used these to replace broken straps on my sons Croc's. Worked like a champ! Many Thanks to Ricky S. for taking the time to get the specs right and suggest the best product.

Straps still performing perfectly btw theyve already lasted TWICE as long as the originals with no sign of fatigue. Quite honestly I now expect the straps to outlive the rest of the shoes!


Hi George the straps work good but I did have a problem with my stabilizer that I bought from you guys a few years ago and I could never get in touch with anybody to get it straightened out maybe you can help me.


They worked well for a replacement of the original straps


An exact match to my current straps. Pe rfect!


I haven’t had to use these yet as I ordered them as potential replacements, but they were exactly what I expected to get.


Replaced 6 year old straps! New straps good price, easy ordering and delivery process.


Delivery was earlier than expected. Product was as expected. Good replacement straps .


Straps are being used a few times every week and are hanging in there really well, even after a year.


Just like the original straps that came with the bike rack. It took some time for the manufacturer to get these to etrailer. But, the staff kept me informed of the delays and notified me promptly of their arrival. Keep up the excellent service, for I'm sure to buy again for my trailering needs.



The straps are working just fine, like the original.

Thanks for your follow up and reply.


Received my order promptly and they work on my bike rack


Lost a hook prior to one of the straps breaking after years of consist use. The hook was my fault, left it on the car bumper after removing the bikes. With both purchases etrailer was easy to use in finding the exact replacement parts at a reasonable price, shipping was quick and delivered on time. Was not sure about the bike rack when I purchased it given how affordable the swagman xtc-2 was, but after nearly seven years of steady use the rack is still going strong.


Received the replacement straps for our bike rack quickly. Thanks for the great service.



Great! They perfectly replaced the ones I broke.


E trailer had difficult to find replacement straps. It was easy to order and delivery was timely.


I ordered two extra straps for my bike rack in the event that one failed while I’m traveling. Reasonable price, fast shipping, and a quality product b

Rick S.


Great, this has been a fabulous product. We have used it several times, with complete satisfaction.


I was a first time customer. I found Identifying the part and by the proper part number here was so easy. Placing my order and paying for it on this web site was a breeze. Other firms could take a lesson from this web page. My order arrived to in a week and I made the repair I needed to, thanks to "" I bookmarked this site for future reference and to share with others. Nice job etrailer. Please don't change anything your doing - you have a winning solution.

Just excellent. It has proven itself over and over as a wish investment. 5 Stars Highly recommend this product line and services.


Needed new straps to keep bike on rack. The ones I received are perfect. Shipped quikly. Good quality.



Straps still strong and not torn after a year of hard use


I bought a Swagman bike rack few yrs back. Some of the rubber loops were stolen and I was able to get replacement parts through e trailer where I made my original purchase . This is the 2nd time I needed various replacement parts and they have been quite helpful, preventing me from having to trash a bike rack. Service fast


Just what I asked for!! They young lady from "way up north" was veryt helpful in insuring that I ordered the right part for my swagman cycle rack and from the right vendor. They arrived as advertised.

Working out great! thanks so much.


bought 3 products-Roadmaster hitch lock, Swagman 1/2" hitch pin, and extra Swagman rubber tie downs for my bike rack - all great products-glad I found etrailer, they carry a lot of items I am interested in-I will shop there again


I've had my Swagman bike rack for 10 years here in Phoenix AZ. The weather takes its toll on the straps during the Summer, so happy ETrailer have the parts for a reasonable price!


I was in need of a rubber strap to replace the original one that came with the Swagman Bike rack. The person I spoke to was helpful and made sure I was ordering the correct part. The order arrived in a timely manner and is currently doing its job. Thanks


After years of steady use some parts of any system are prone to wear. Its great that quality replacement parts can be found at etrailer at a reasonable price. Looking forward to many more years of using the Swagman XTC Bike carrier with the new replacement strap.

  • How do the Replacement Rubber Straps for the Swagman XTC Bike Rack Install
    If you check out the picture of the wheel hoops part # P318 that I attached you will see how the straps # P308 attach to them. You can also go to the product page for the # P318 to see the picture. Basically you just stretch the rubber holes over the attachment points of the hoops. Fast forward to the 1:05 mark of the video I attached to see how they secure a wheel to the rack.

  • Bike Rack Straps for a Platform Bike Rack that Does Not have Straps
    Some platform bike racks don't have wheel straps. For example # S64650. Depending on the design of the bike rack you might be able to use straps # S64765 which are 8 inches long. We also have # 63135 which are 17 inches long (and designed for a different platform bike rack). I am sure that one of these 2 sets will work for you.

  • Recommended Rubber Bike Strap for 10 Inch Tie-Down
    The exact measurements you are seeking are not easy to find. We don't have anything that I am aware of that is exact, so if precision to your measurements is important, you may need to custom make something. I recommend the Replacement Rubber Chain Straps for Yakima Bike Racks with Anti-Sway Cradles # 8890221 which is 9 inches long and has 1/2 inch holes for a possible option. Another possible option is # 853-7803 which is 11-3/8 inches long with 1/2 inch holes. The Swagman # P308 may...

  • Recommended Hose Rack for a Tanker Trailer
    The closest I can get to that that we have is the Replacement Wheel Strap for Thule Raceway Platform Style Bike Carrier # P308 which measures 11 3/8" overall, and has 10 1/2" wide holes. If it's just a hose rack you're looking for, the Rack'Em 2-Hook Multi-Tool Rack for Enclosed Trailers # RA-11 is what I'd go for. This can be mounted to your trailer, has 2 hooks for hanging your hose, and the hooks are also predrilled so they can be screwed into any surface. .

  • Replacement Wheel Straps for Bike Racks with 1/2" Diameter Holes
    You are correct that the Softride straps were discontinued. The Replacement Rubber Strap for Wheel Hoop on Swagman XTC Series Bike Carriers # P308 you were looking at has a hole diameter of 1/2" and is 12" long compared to the 9-13/16" length of the Softride straps. The 1/2" diameter is as close as we have to the 3/8" diameter of the Softride straps. I have included some options below that have the 1/2" diameter and are different lengths.

  • Replacement Straps for Swagman XTC Bike Rack S64671
    We do have replacement straps for the Swagman XTC bike racks like the part # S64671 with the part # P308. This is a more economically priced bike rack and one of the sacrifices that ends up getting made on the lower priced racks is overall stability and movement. The clearances just aren't as tight and the rack will more more. The bike rack that is most similar in design and price that is very solid is the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider # HR200Z which is what I normally recommend for people.
